THIS PRETTY PASTEL SEASIDE WEDDING PROVES MERMAIDS ARE REAL!

As wedding bloggers, many people make the assumption that we get to attend a lot of weddings, so it might come as a surprise to find out that we don’t get invited to as many as you might think. And we’ve certainly never attended any of the weddings that we’ve featured on Bespoke Bride… that was until today.

Some of you might recognize today’s beaut of a bride as YouTuber, Emily Fisher of Mermaid Gossip. Jess met Emily back in 2013 at Blogcademy, London and not long after Jess introduced us both at a local bloggers event in Bristol. We instantly hit it off, realizing we had tons in common and we’ve remained close friends ever since, celebrating friendsgivingsBirthdays and now even marriages.

We felt so honoured to have been part of Emily and Brads special day and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you…

Prepare yourself for some serious mermaid vibes!!!

DIY CHRISTMAS SLOGAN PUN GLASSES

Calling all jingle ladies! Here we go guys, Christmas DIYs start right here and I couldn’t be more excited about it! We’re kicking things off with these funny pun slogan glasses because we all love a good pun don’t we?! These are so easy to make, we’re even stocking the stickers in our shop if you’d prefer to just buy them instead of making them (we love making Christmas as easy and fun as possible!) so let’s get started shall we? Time to get SPROUT of control with the Christmas DIYs….(paha sorry couldn’t resist!)

YOU WILL NEED:

Glassware of your choice // Gold vinyl* // /Cricut Machine // Transfer tape //

*If you don’t have a cutting machine or would prefer to just buy the vinyl stickers instead of cutting them out, then you can buy these Christmas Slogan pun stickers here and then skip straight to step 4!

STEP 1:

Open up the Cricut design space and using the font tool, type the quotes you want to cut out, the 10 slogans we went for are as follows:

-EVERYDAY I’M BRUSSELIN
-ALL THE JINGLE LADIES
-SLEIGH MY NAME SLEIGH MY NAME
-BELIEVE IN YOUR ELF
-HAPPY HOLLA DAYS
-UP TO SNOW GOOD
-SLEIGH WHAT?
-MINCE PIES BEFORE GUYS
-COS I SLEIGH
-SPROUT OF CONTROL

I then sized them all to 2 inches wide because that’s what would fit my glasses best, but size yours to whatever works for you.

WEEKEND WEDDING PLANNING: CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

Did someone just say Christmas? No way! Usually I am very strict about when we can start feeling festive in our household. Normally it’s the weekend after my birthday, but as we will be out of the country for much of December this year, I have relaxed the rules a little as I don’t want there to be a mad Christmas rush the week we come back from Sri Lanka. So this year for the first time ever, we will be putting up our Christmas tree in NOVEMBER!! Jess has already pipped me to the post as she put her Christmas tree up this week in preparation for our Christmas DIY’s which will be starting next month and sitting their eating lunch with her yesterday and I strangely felt myself feeling rather Christmassy. So when do you decorate for Christmas? Is November too early?

Talking of Christmas, here are some festive links, great if your putting the final touches to a December wedding…

FAUX FOLIAGE BRIDE & GROOM CHAIR SIGNS DIY

Sometimes it’s all about the details, you don’t need many, but having a few cute detail DIY projects in the bag can really help when it comes to putting everything together on the big day! Today we’re going to be sharing a really easy bride / groom chair hang DIY which you guys can easily make in an afternoon and then pop away ready for the wedding! I just love how darn adorable they look on Emily’s pink chairs!

YOU WILL NEED:

Faux Foliage // Small faux flowers // Hot glue gun // Pliers // Steel wire // Floral tape // Printer // String or yarn //

STEP 1:

Start by printing off the word bride and groom in a font that you like, you’ll need to pick a cursive font so that all of the letters join up.

STEP 2:

Next cut a long piece of your wire and start folding it into the shape of your word, you can do most of this with your hands but you’ll need to use the pliers for the tighter curves, I also found that it helped to use the floral tape to keep certain parts of the word together once I had bent them.

STEP 3:

Repeat this with your other word, whether you’re making bride and groom, bride and bride or groom and groom. Then, tie your string or yarn onto each side of each of your words so that they’re ready to hang.
