The Perfect Engagement Ring

With the start of February, you know it's not far away....Valentine's Day's a-coming, and across the land, men are preparing to propose! I know it's all become terribly commercialised, but I'm a sucker for romance, and anything that promotes love has got to be a good thing in my book. I've chatted to loads of guys about why they didn't propose sooner, and a big reason is the expense of the engagement ring. They just don't realise, that with rings, we don't mind! We just want to get engaged, and you can always save up for a big and better rock later!! So personally, if I was getting engaged all over again - I'd like this one from Artemar please. Simple, chic, and completely adorable.

Real Equestrian Polo Themed Wedding: Xan & Rob

As a wedding blogger, I've seen a LOT of weddings, so it takes something fun and different to raise my eyebrow {just one, like Roger Moore in James Bond!}. So how about a wedding involving a polo game? Known as the Sport of Kings, it's the perfect backdrop to this refined, elegant wedding from Franschhoek, in South Africa. With a wedding ceremony at Xan's family's wine farm, Lynx Wines, and a reception at the spectacular Val De Vie Polo Estate, we're talking a serious amount of wedding inspiration. Needless to say I'm seriously enthusiastic about Xan's incredible ruffled wedding gown {buy similar from Maggie Sottero}, her simple twisted stilettos, and her cathedral-length veil. Rob and his ushers look super-suave in their black tie get-up, and I'm loving Xan's bridesmaids' ombre dresses. Don't miss the last few pictures; the wedding stationery featured crossed polo mallets, and wedding favours were potted succulents, wrapped with smart monochrome ribbon {love!}. Gorgeous pictures published with thanks to the hugely talented team at We Love Pictures. Also don't miss Xan and Rob's wedding video by Vision on Fire - it's brilliant!

BBD Theme: On Your High Horse

If you're getting married in the countryside, then why not consider an equestrian theme? Totally romantic, it harks back to a more chivalrous era, and would set a genteel tone to your big day. There's also endless motifs to add charm to your stationery and reception, starting of course with the lucky horse-shoe. Use rosettes as button holes and favours, encourage your page boys to carry hobby horses, and why not ride side-saddle up the aisle? And after a barn-dance or hoe-down, gallop into the sunset with the man of your dreams (hopefully not the best man!). Great news! Several of the vendors below have agreed to give discounts to Before the Big Day readers. Check out the details below.
