GRAINNE & BRENDAN – TESTIMONIAL

“We’re getting married January 2010 and got our wedding stationary from Farrell and Chase. We first met Pamela at the RDS Wedding show and immediately was impressed by the design and style of their cards. It met our needs exactly. Not only is the quality of their stationary superb but its all been so easy!! Be it a call or email Pamela is just so helpful, polite, courteous and obliging. Last week we posted our invitations and we’ve had so much good feedback!”

            WEDDING INSPIRATION – GARDEN PARTY

            There is something so beautifully romantic about a garden wedding. Play off the natural beauty of Mother Nature and incorporate sage greens, vibrant pinks and purples into the styling. Serve a refreshing punch and delicious picnic sandwiches and mini quiches when guests arrive at the reception and set up a game of croquet on the lawn. Display hand picked flowers in jam jars and hang them from trees together with bird cadges to create an enchanting whimsical atmosphere. Set tables with lace linens and tea lights and let the beautiful natural setting do the rest!

              WEDDING INSPIRATION – LA DOLCE VITA

              Imbue your wedding day with a sense of Italian romance, style, flavour and “La Dolce Vita”, fly away to one of the may breathtaking locations in Italy whether it’s the rolling hills of Tuscany, the dramatic cliffs of Amalfi or the sights of Rome. Use loose floral arrangements with plenty of candle light to create a relaxed, romantic atmosphere. Add vintage flair with different styles of bridesmaids dresses in the same muted colour pallet, give guests small bags of lavender confetti for your exit from the church and arrive in style in a classic Italian car. Serve prosecco with delicious canapes to welcome guests before a long relaxing Italian meal served with local wine. Create a comfortable seating are with hammocks or big floor cushions beside the pool or on the roof terrace or balcony where gusts can enjoy the entertainment well into the night.

                X FACTOR DANNII V’S CHERYL

                There’s been so much talk about X Factor how could I not mention it, but I won’t be discussing the music… I will be weighing in on the Dannii V’s Cheryl style discussion.

                I have to say first off that I think Dannii is winning hands down. She is dressing in classic elegant sophisticated style week after week. She knows her style, what suits her and I think looks better than ever. 

                Cheryl on the other hand, I think is going through a style crisis. I think she is trying to shock and wow everyone this year, going a step too far and as a result is looking tacky and try hard. We won’t even talk about that black dress!!!

                My favourite style week overall was Big Band week. I love vintage style especially 1920’s – 1940’s style. Even the suits that the boys wore were just so stylish, I’m not talking about Louis and Simon!  It was just such a glamorous era.

                danniicherylThe one thing I did love that Cheryl wore was the Jenny Packham Acacia II headpiece. I love Jenny Packham, she’s my favourite bridal designer. I’d love to wear a headpiece like it for my own wedding. I just have to get the dress first! 

                I also love Dannii’s new bob, when she doesn’t crimp and quiff it. I think it’s stunning and so sharp on her just worn straight with her frindge. Very similar to my own hairstyle so maybe I’m a bit biast.

                Looking forward to this weeks show!
