Real Wedding: Tarien & Pierre

Amazing wedding dress alert! This alternative gown is going to seriously rock your world, particularly if you're looking for a non-traditional wedding dress. Tarien picked a heavenly soft pink and black lace gown for her big day, and it's fierce! If you're planning a winter wedding you'll want to start taking notes now, because this event is a lesson in how to add glamour and drama and COLOUR to your big day. I'm loving the bright pink, the blackboards, the fabulous brocade table-cloths, and the cute slate place markers. Huge thanks to the team at We Love Pictures for their gorgeous photographs.

Wedding Confetti Alternatives

If you're looking for an alternative to confetti, it doesn't get much better thean being bombarded with tiny pom-poms as you walk back up the aisle as man and wife. Our bubbles, for that matter - there's something about them that just shouts cheerful. Lots of venues don't allow confetti, so double check, and consider a cool alternative. For a winter wedding, a sparkler send-off is super romantic. Images via Ruffled.

Wedding Tea-Party

One way to keep costs down when planning your wedding reception, is to host a wedding tea-party instead. But how to make it super-stylish? Well you could start with these Prêt-à-porter tea-bags from Donkey Products. Throw in a traditional English tea-cosy, a vintage tea-set and a cake-stand full of cupcakes, and you'll be well on your way to a party.

Real Wedding: Alex & Akil

There's nothing like a destination wedding to cheer you up when the sun sets on yet another freezing cold winter day. So how about a beach wedding in Costa Rica? Heaven! Gorgeous couple Alex and Akil decided on an intimate wedding by the sea-side, and invited just their nearest and dearest. But that didn't stop Alex from choosing not one, but two wedding dresses, and throwing in a parasol and some stunning chunky jewellery for good measure. I love their orange and lime colour theme, and Akil's super-dapper suit and tie combo - but the best thing? The beach! Stunning photographs as ever from the massively talented Jose Villa.

The New Cupcakes

Let's be honest, wedding cup-cakes have become a bit samey, and I'm always on the look-out for the latest sweet-treat trend, and I think I've found it! Bee's Bakery designs amazing biscuits, embossed with Rob Ryan-inspired lettering. The self-taught baker updates vintage recipes, giving classic Scottish shortbread a modern twist with lavender or Iranian rose essence. Meanwhile, her homemade jammie dodgers, filled with whipped buttercream and raspberry jam, are larger and richer than the ones you loved as a kid. All her flavours, including ginger and chocolate can be personalised with up to four letters. P.S. She also does cup-cakes!

Real Wedding: Jordana & Mike

Another snowy day in the UK, and I'm hoping it'll last till the weekend for those Saturday weddings. Snowy weddings are so romantic! In the meantime, let's keep busy with checking out this incredible summer wedding. Photographer Stephanie Williams did her usual amazing job on capturing all the details, most of which Jordana and Mike did themselves. They collected all the vintage bottles for the table centerpieces, and created the amazing dessert display, complete with candy and cannolis and a variety of cakes. Loving the bird motif on the stationery, fans, cake topper and ring cushion, plus the rich purple and grey colour palette. I'm also a hue fan of Jordana's Monique Lhuillier lace dress and her awesome Steve Madden ruffled shoes. Plus, something you can't see from the pictures, Jordana and Mike kicked off the dancing with a choreographed salsa dance, which reminds me I need to book our own dancing classes!

Real Wedding: Laura & Bee

This wedding is ALL about the details - you're going to love it. From the gorgeous birdcages and mason jars to the Laura's super-poofy dress, every bit was carefully pulled together. Laura is known as Bird, so the theme of the wedding was Birds and Bees, and you can see how the happy couple carried it through into the table decorations, bouquets, cake-toppers and even Laura's winged necklace. Whatsmore, every bridesmaid got a different bouquet, and a different vintage-style handkerchief to represent her style. Loving these pictures from the super-talented Punam Bean.
