It's All In The Detail for Wedding Wednesday

When you first sit down and think, "Right, where do I start?" when planning your wedding it can seem quite overwhelming. You know you have to choose a venue, a dress and a first dance song but it's all the little odds and sods which you have to think about, such as favours, confetti, ribbons, thank you cards…..the list goes on.

I have been taking a look at all those items you may wish to use in planning your wedding or actually buy for your wedding day for all those little details. I have found some lovely books and very pretty decor items too. Papermash being my particular favourite, stripy straws are a must!


It is for your wedding day, so why not go shopping at Liberty? I have always adored Liberty's range of stationery and they certainly know how to do the pretty for your special day.

When I was planning my wedding I more or less lived in Paperchase. I bought a lot of stuff from this store. Sadly, I was not as impressed with the stock they have got in now to what I bought back in 2010. Here's my picks…..

One thing that John Lewis has got which none of the other stores have, is variety. They have got everything!
I am in love with the 'to have and to hold' ribbon. This ribbon would look lovely tied around each napkin for that extra little touch. And the Charbonnel et Walker favours are the best favours you could have. Classy, stylish and yummy!

For me, Papermash know how to do 'the pretty'. If you are ALL about the detail, then you cannot go wrong with stripy straws for a summer garden party themed wedding. And the honeycomb balls? Love 'em!!
