Wedding Busy Activity Bags

When you are planning your wedding, one of the questions that will probably crop up whilst you are creating your wedding guest list will be about inviting children… do we invite them, don’t we, what will we do to keep them entertained?

It’s great to have children at your wedding, but you might want to think about providing them with something to do to keep them occupied, especially whilst the speeches are taking place.

Cheese Stack Wedding Cakes from The Cheese Society

How do you fancy having something completely different from the traditional wedding cake? Have you thought about a cheese stack wedding cake?

The cheese stack wedding cake is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to the traditional wedding cake. We think they are a brilliant idea (mainly because we are huge cheese fans!) as it provides not only something that will really wow your guests but also an alternative to a wedding reception buffet.

It’s a brilliant idea to have a delicious cheese stack along with some beautiful cut meats, crackers, grapes, olives and bread for your guest to help themselves to, and it should also work out cheaper than paying per person for a buffet.

The Cheese Society have ‘cheesecakes’ that range from a three-stack mini wedding cake that serves 10-20 guests for an intimate wedding to an extra large five-stack cake serving 200+.

We love The Cheese Society’s ‘mini stack’. This serves 10-20 people and at just £40 works out to as little as £2 per guest. The three stack mini cake would be perfect for a small intimate wedding, or you could use them as table decorations, placing them in the centre of large round tables for 10-12 people and inviting your guests to help themselves.

The mini stack includes…

Yarwood-White Poppies

Thursday 11th November is Remembrance Day, and special services will be held at churches and war memorials all over the UK on the 14th November (Remembrance Sunday) to remember all the men and women who lost their lives during the two World Wars and other conflicts.

As we all know, it is a custom to wear poppies in the weeks leading up to and on Remembrance Day, with the money raised from the sale of these poppies going towards providing help and support to serving and ex-service men and women and their dependants.

As well as the traditional paper poppies, you can also show your support to this fantastic cause by wearing other variations, such as these stunning poppies from Yarwood-White.

In recent years Yarwood-White has designed poppies worn by the judges and contestants on The X Factor, in honour of Remembrance Day, The Poppy Appeal and The Royal British Legion.  After the huge popularity of the poppies they decided to sell them online, with £5 from every poppy sold donated to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Each of the stunning satin ribbon poppies has a dark velvet centre piece and pressed glass bead centre.  They would make a great accessory to a wedding day outfit, whether pinned to a lapel, bag or ponytail, or they can be worn on a bracelet as a wrist corsage, a style inspired by Dannii Minogue.  Groomsmen could wear them as their buttonholes instead of a traditional flower.

Yarwood-White also offer a bespoke service, where you can customise your poppy into a one of a kind design.

To find out more about these beautiful poppies visit the Yarwood-White website.

What an exciting time it is for Yarwood-White at the moment!  Not only have they moved to a beautiful new studio, they have also been commended in the Sheerluxe Awards (more about that in a moment) and have just announced the release of their brand new “Enchanted Garden” collection.

The designs were inspired by the beauty of a forgotten walled garden, and the plants that flourished there.  The garden is a peaceful place to reflect, and the materials used in each necklace are renowned for the positive feelings they evoke.

Yarwood-White were also thrilled to have been commended in the Bridal Jewellery category at the recent Sheerluxe Online Shopping Awards.

The Awards recognise the very best in luxury shopping websites, and the competition was very stiff, with LK Bennett, Myla and ASOS also receiving commendations.  Yarwood-White stockist Luella’s Boudoir was the runner up in the Best Wedding Accessories category.  Well done to everyone for their awards.
