Table name ideas - Las Vegas

Adding personal touches to your wedding day makes it that little bit more special. A simple way to do this is through naming your tables. This is our first post to help provide some inspiration for those table names.

The key is to find something unique to both of you as a couple. One idea for this could be memorable hotel names from a favourite holidays destination. How about Las Vegas? You could use any of the following:

The Venetian
MGM Grand
Caesar's Palace
New York New York

Having recently celebrated my sister's birthday, I had the yummy task of tasting a slice of her birthday cake. Knowing my sister's love of cup cakes my mum bought her a Show Girl giant cup cake from LOLA's. I can honestly say it was one of the scrummiest cakes I have ever eaten!

LOLA'S provide a range of wedding cupcakes which can be customised to match your wedding theme or colour scheme. Either choose them as your favours or as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake. They come in a range of
flavours so I'm sure there is something for everyone.

Check out LOLA'S cupcake bar at
Selfridges & Co or the Patisserie Counter at Harrods.

The Brits

I first started thinking of this inspiration board after reading an article 'Best of the Brits' in Fabulous. This year the Brits Awards is celebrating 30 years and will be screened live on ITV tonight. Based on the most memorable dress worn by Gerri Halliwell, which later sold for a record £41,320 at a charity auction, this board shouts Cool Britannia. Whilst this board is OTT with everything union jack you can take elements of this to introduce accents to your day if you don't want to go all the way.

Wedding Planners Annual Conference 2010

Today I attended the Annual Wedding Planners Conference in associated with Square Meal Venues and Events and Triggerfish Communications held at The Grove Hotel. I'd like to say thanks to everyone for organising such a great day. I found it a really useful day full of inspiring ideas.

It was a great opportunity to get together with other professional planners in the industry and discuss all things relating to weddings. It also gave us the opportunity to hear lots of tips and trends from a number of suppliers including:

Jo Bryant from Debretts
Michael Namock from Nomad Food & Design

Mich Turner from The Little Venice Cake Company
Keith Appleby from Keith Appleby Photography
Nikki Tibbles from Wild at Heart
Caroline Burstein from Browns Bride
Sarah Jagger make up artist
Paul Edmonds London hair and beauty emporium

Be my Valentine....

Valentines is a great excuse for romance but, if your like me, I don't think we should need an excuse to be romantic and tell that special person how much we love them. Red is often a colour associated with passion, desire and love so it's an idea choice for a wedding theme. The colours and deep red tones of this board scream warmth and love with a sexy sassy style. So, whether you're out for a romantic dinner or snuggling up in front of the tv with a nice bottle of wine, this one is for all you romantics.
