Pretty Pink Toes Heel Stoppers

Heel Stoppers from Pretty Pink Toes

Ladies, how many times have you bought a gorgeous new pair of shoes for a wedding or other event and have ruined the heels the first time you have worn them when you’ve walked across a lawn or field and sunk into the grass? Not to mention the fact that you look pretty silly as you try in vain to stop yourself sinking, either as you walk, or while you stand to smile for photographs.

Well your problems have now been solved!

Pretty Pink Toes Boutique have a wonderful product called The Heel Stopper. Clean Heels flexible Heel Stoppers are designed to fit onto stiletto heels to stop you sinking into mud and grass.

Pretty Pink Toes Heel Stoppers

I have been playing with a pair at The Wedding Community this week and I have to say they are amazing! Simply pop them onto the heel of your shoe to prevent your heels sinking into grass. They also help protect floors on cruise ships, yachts or wooden floors.

Heel Stoppers come in three different sizes:

  • Petite – approx fits heel widths 0.5 to 0.7cm
  • Small  – fits heel widths of 0.9 to 1.2cm
  • Medium –  fits heel widths of 1.3 to 1.6cm (This is the size I tried out which seems perfect for the majority of my shoes)

The Heel Stoppers come in different designs, from clear or black, to fancy glitter ones embellished with Diamante Hearts, Ivory or Silver Hearts, Mother of Pearl, and Teardrops and Pearls.

Prices start at just £4.99, and all Heel Stoppers come in a pretty voile bag. They really are a must for all brides and female wedding guests who love their shoes!

Brown Betty Butterfly Table Confetti

Brown Betty Butterfly Table Confetti

We just had to tell you all about this beautiful butterfly table confetti Brown Betty Stationery sent us to check out.

Each cute little butterfly is made of two luxurious butterfly paper cut-outs stuck together, one with the wings folded up to make the most beautiful butterfly table confetti. They come in a range of colours including red, sage, purple, white, silver, pink, ivory, gold, blue, moss green, golden yellow and black to complement any colour scheme. The base butterfly comes in white but you can choose any other colour at no extra cost. We had a box with purple, lilac and silver which complement each other perfectly.

Brown Betty Butterfly Table Confetti

This butterfly table confetti from Brown Betty Stationery is just £1.90 for a box of 30 and each pack comes in a lovely white box.

Brown Betty Stationery also makes beautiful handmade wedding stationery to compliment these butterflies. They sent us the Sophisticated Lilac wedding invitation and RSVP card tied together with a stunning purple ribbon which just fit perfectly with the purple, lilac and silver butterfly theme.

Brown Betty Wedding Stationery

Each of Brown Betty’s stationery range has its own invitation, save the date postcard, RSVP postcard, order of service sheet, menu card, table number card, guest place card and thank you postcard.

If you are having a butterfly or garden themed wedding, then Brown Betty’s butterfly table confetti will be just perfect for your wedding tables and, as it’s made from paper, this table confetti is also recyclable, unlike some foil table confetti.

We love it!

So Hooked Handbag Hooks

So-Hooked Handbag Hooks

Be honest, where do wedding favours and bridal party gifts sit on your wedding ‘to do’ list? Way down? Perhaps in your ‘nice to have’ or ‘yes, I’ll get to it’ section.

We all know that you can spend a considerable amount of your wedding budget on items that might never be worn, seen, or thought of again. So consider this: Favours and gifts might be your best opportunity to give guests a lasting keepsake from your wedding day.

So-Hooked specialise in handbag hooks, from standard designs to personalised (engraved) and Swarovski-crystal delights.

So Hooked Handbag Hooks

What is a handbag hook?

A handbag hook is a girl’s best friend. It hooks discreetly over the table edge and your handbag hangs from it. This keeps your bag clean, safe and off the floor.
