Non-Sucky Bridal Tees: Rock n Roll Bride Merch is Here!

One of my favourite things is connecting with you guys on social media and something I hear over and over in our private Facebook group (where we’re about to hit 13,000 members, whhhhaaaat!?) is that there’s a huge lack of non-sucky, non-cheesy, non-eye-roll-inducing bridal t-shirts available. T-shirts that you can wear on your hen do, to wedding shows, getting ready the morning of the big day itself… or maybe even post-wedding to celebrate your new wifed status.

So I did some research, and while occasionally a high street or online store will bring out a wedding tee, if it doesn’t 100% blow (do NOT get me started on the whole ‘shedding for the wedding’ thing!) it will usually sell out faster than you can add it to your cart and checkout. So I knew what I had to do, I needed to design my own!

INTRODUCING: The Rock n Roll Bride t-shirt collection!!!

We are launching with three designs, available on either black or white organic cotton. Each tee is made using fully sustainable fairtrade approved materials and is printed right here in the UK.

These super-duper soft boyfriend-fit t-shirts can be worn by guys or gals and are all available from an XS to an XXL. The sizing is generous. I’m a UK size 12 and I’m wearing a medium in these photos (tied at the back or tucked in, with the sleeves rolled) however I think I’d fit into a small too if I wanted an overall slimmer fit.

Anti-Bride

You’re a non-conformist in your everyday life, so you should definitely bring that into your wedding too – do your day, your way! This design is available in two colour options….

Pink on white

Win a Rock n Roll Bride x Veronica Dearly Wedding Planner!

I am in full-on ‘totally psyched for the year ahead’ mode right now. I’ve got a bunch of new projects in the works and I’m feeling all together really positive about 2018 and what it might hold. A lot in part to all your incredibly kind comments on last week’s post about the future of Rock n Roll Bride. You really have no idea how happy reading all those replies made me.

So, to celebrate this new-found feeling of joy, I’ve decided to drop a surprise giveaway on you. It’s just my way of saying thank you for all being so wonderful. I’ve partnered with my babe Veronica Dearly to give THREE lucky readers a Rock n Roll Bride x Veronica Dearly prize package including the wedding planner, a two pins of their choice.

I am so proud of the wedding planner, and I know it’s really going to help you when organising your alternative wedding. Why? Because I wrote the damn thing (haha)! But in all seriousness, I’ve put all my insider wedding planning knowledge into it so if you’re foundering or don’t know what the hell you need to do, this is the next best thing to having me on speed dial.

Plus it’s hella cute and has STICKERS,

The planner comes in a super fancy A5 ring binder and is going to make you so damn organised you won’t know what to do with yourself. It’s broken up into four sections: Calendar and Timeline, The Nitty Gritty, Fun Stuff and Notes. The 12 month calendar is where you’ll jot down all your appointments and generally plan your life (it’s date-free meaning you can start using it right away), and the planning timeline will let you know what to do and when. There’s even a budget checklist to keep you on track.

The Nitty Gritty section is where we get down and dirty with every aspect of the planning process. I’ve shared my tips for each important bit (from choosing your dress, writing your invites, managing your guest list and RSVPs, choosing your cake/ flowers/ decor etc) and I’ve even written you some madlibs to make writing your own vows a breeze.

Secret Gardens & Starry Nights: The 2018 Collection from Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory!

It’s here, it’s finally here! Today is the unveiling (see what I did there) of the 2018 Rock n Roll Bride x Crown and Glory collection!

Now I know I’m probably not supposed to have favourites, but this is – by far – the best collection we’ve ever created. Modest, me!? Seriously though, just you wait until you get a load of these beauties. These are veils like you’ve never seen before!

The collection is influenced by two of Sophie and my favourite things – plants and botanicals, and stars – hence the collection name: Secret Gardens & Starry Nights!

Just like all of our past collections, each piece has been designed to be customised, meaning you can alter the colours (and in some cases length) to suit your own, distinctive style. You can select your preferred colour of foil and glitter stars (from a choice of 38!) in the Space Odyssey veil, the ombre in the Ombre Dreams veils can be any colour you like and the sequin flowers in the Magic Garden range are available in lots of different colours too! You can even decide if you want more or less (or none at all) sequin bug embellishments on the Secret Garden veil.

Just before you scroll down to look at them all in detail, I made you a little video talking you though each piece.

But enough rambling from me, I know you’re here for one thing – to see the collection in full!

Starry Night

Float down the aisle in this stunning single-layer embroidered starry veil. Made of super soft tulle with all-over embroidered star design on a tulle wrapped clear comb so it can be easily worn with hair up or hair down. Both dramatic, fashion-forward and elegant, there’s nothing you won’t love about this celestial-inspired veil.

Available in three beautiful colourways:

White and ivory

Pink and purple

Black and pink

Issue 18 on Pre-Sale Today!

Sorry, this product is now sold out!

I hope you all had the most gloriously relaxing Christmas – were there any festive engagements around your way?

Now don’t worry, you’re not required to peel yourself away from Netflix and the family sized box of Quality Street just yet, but I just wanted to pop by today to let you know that our January/ February issue is available for pre-order from today!

Oh my goodness, this cover. Some of you may already recognise this total fox as Sophie from Crown and Glory. My BFF, my collaborator and an all round wonderful human. Being her maid of honour in September was one of my highlights of 2017 and so OF COURSE we had to feature her wedding in the magazine and stick her pretty face on the cover. Thank you to Devlin Photos for totally nailing this shot.

WHAT. A. BABE.

I’m pretty darn excited for you to see this issue. Not just because it’s packed full of the 11 exclusive real weddings, a stunning sequin photo shoot shot at Dreamland and advice a-plenty to help get you amped up and inspired to plan your wedding in your own way… BUT one of my favourite body positive role models has written you a little sommat sommat too.

I’ve been obsessed with Megan Jayne Crabbe (aka @bodypositvepanda) ever since I discovered her. I bought her book as soon as it was available and reading her words never fails to make me feel GOOD. And she must be doing something right because she’s amassed nearly ONE MILLION followers on Instagram!

So obviously, she is a super busy and in-demand lady so I wasn’t sure she’d even reply when I messaged her to ask if she’d be interested in writing a piece for the magazine. If there was one person I wanted to pen something about weight loss and weddings for our January issue it was her. Now not only did she reply right away, BUT SHE SAID YES. The article she’s written is INCREDIBLE, inspiring and the perfect antidote for all the weight loss/ detox/ new year new you bullshit that is heading our way as soon as January 1st rolls around.

The illustrations in her article were created for us by the super talented Jasmine Floyd (I love them so much I might have to get them printed out to hang in my office). I can not wait for you to read this one.

Who wants a little cheeky preview of what else you’ll find inside the issue? Oh go on then…!
