When reading our experts’ wedding articles, looking in wedding magazines and visiting wedding fairs this year you will notice that there is an abundance of beautiful paper decorations available which will make perfect decorations for your wedding tables and venue. There are lots of companies who make paper flower table displays which are fabulous as you can keep these after your wedding or give them to people as gifts.

We absolutely love Steve Gerrard Photography’s work, so we were obviously delighted when Steve asked if we would like to feature some pictures he took from the wedding of Liz and Jon on 17th April 2010. The ceremony took place at St Mary the Virgin Church in Aldridge, with the reception at Moor Hall in Sutton Coldfield. We know you’re going to love the pictures…
Mai Pearls, one of The Wedding Community’s trusted suppliers, very kindly sent us some of their beautiful pearl jewellery that is just perfect for weddings. I absolutely love pearls, and given the choice of pearls or diamonds I would have a very hard decision to make, but I actually think pearls might win!
It can sometimes be very difficult when you are looking for jewellery for your bridal party to wear, as it is not always possible to have your flower girls and adult bridesmaids in the same collection of jewellery. Mai Pearls offer a whole range of beautiful pearl jewellery for weddings (or any other occasion) for both adults and children, so there really is something for everyone.
We wanted to feature the Mai Pearls ‘Pearl and Ribbon’ range particularly as it is such a pretty collection. Within this collection there is an adult’s necklace and bracelet as well as a very cute child’s necklace and bracelet. (There are also pearl earrings).
A light, summery looking pearl bracelet, with champagne organza ribbon, ivory-white irregular freshwater pearls and a sterling silver clasp. There are approximately 24 6-7 mm pearls on the bracelet which is around 19cm in length. This pearl bracelet can be worn twisted, making it smaller in size and therefore ideal for the more petit wrist. This bracelet is also available in pink organza ribbon.
This champagne coloured three string organza ribbon and ivory white freshwater pearl necklace is perfect for weddings. The organza is light-weight and combined with the pearls creates a feminine look. There are approximately 27 ivory-white freshwater pearls each around 6mm in size, and this pearl necklace is approximately 40cm long.
A champagne organza ribbon and ivory-white freshwater pearl bracelet with a sterling silver clasp and bespoke Mai Pearls butterfly tag. This is an adjustable bracelet with two lengths, 14cm and 17cm. When the bracelet is worn at 14 cm, a length of ribbon, pearl and the butterfly tag hangs in a charm like way. The pearls are approximately 3mm wide.
This adorable necklace has a champagne organza ribbon and ivory-white freshwater pearls with sterling silver clasp and bespoke Mai Pearls butterfly jewellery tag. It is adjustable to two lengths, 36cm and 31cm. When worn at 31cm long, a 5cm length of ribbon, pearl and the butterfly tag sits at the back of the neck. The pearls are approximately 3mm wide.
If you are looking for beautiful jewellery that all the female members of your bridal party can wear, the Mai Pearls ‘Pearl and Ribbon’ range will look amazing.
All Mai Pearls jewellery comes beautifully presented in a bespoke white organza bag with the Mai Pearls logo printed on the front in pink. All pearl bracelets have sterling silver clasps and a unique sterling silver butterfly jewellery tag. There is also a gift wrapping service; for an extra £2.50 luxurious pink tissue paper is used and a beautiful gift tag with a personalised handwritten message is attached to the bespoke organza bag.
