A couple of months ago, we read an interesting article on how modern life is making us miserable because we simply have too much choice. Freedom of choice is generally a fabulous thing, but it can almost backfire when the fear of making the wrong choice (out of hundreds of options) is paralyzing us into inaction.

Brides and grooms will experience this in nearly every single one of the 300 hours it’ll roughly take to plan your wedding day. From wedding date to ceremony to venue to stationery to type of reception to favours – the choice is yours and, unless you’re one of the lucky people knowing precisely what they want, it can be hilariously confusing.

It can also be all too easy to throw in the towel and just roll with the basics you have seen being done before – and there’s nothing wrong with that, if they are what you want.

To guide you along some of the fantastic options out there, we would like to inspire you with some ideas we love and show you what can be done.

Over the coming weeks, we will showcase various styles and options but today, we’d like to show you some examples of fabulously retro inspired ideas.

We have fallen head over heels for these invitations – so very much 50ties glam and pretty enough to put into a picture frame and keep.

Wedding Gown
Can’t you just hear this dress swishing with every move! Very Audrey Hepburn, we think.

Place cards
Loving the use of different fonts, tying in with the invitations.

Dinner is served
Who says you can’t have a more relaxed approach to your wedding breakfast table? This table has an almost “glam backyard feel” to it but we hope you’d agree that it is no less pretty than a more formal setting – just something different to consider.

Needless to say, we are simply brimming with inspiration and would love to share some ideas with you. If you need any guidance planning your wedding day, why not get in touch with us – we’re here to help!

Until next time, be fabulous!
