June 21, 2013By Erin BalfourWOW Hearts

It’s been another great week hopping around the Internet, spying lovely, shiny things. As usual, just click the images to be taken to the websites. The Weddings I love this Annelle wedding dress by Folded Roses on Etsy. I originally had the idea that I wanted a short dress for my day, so I have … Read More

As this website grows, I meet more and more really lovely and like-minded people from all corners of the Web. The Internet is a great way of encountering the stylists, wedding dress suppliers, cake-makers and stationers whose wares and services are right up my street. I recently wrote a guest post on the brilliant Retro … Read More

Treasure Bouquet

June 10, 2013By Erin BalfourAccessories

Historically, bouquets were used in the days before we had such a thing as personal hygiene. The scented flowers served to disguise the whiff of the bride, probably made worse by the sweating and the nerves. Lovely. Nowadays, we are all shower-fresh and perfumed muchly, so the need for floral bouquets has passed into tradition. … Read More

This is Business

June 3, 2013By Erin BalfourThis is Business

I thought I’d start a series of posts about the business side of blogging. A series about the practicalities that face bloggers today. Don’t worry, it’s not a yawn fest! I wasn’t interested in business studies at school. I footered around in lessons, scrawling song lyrics onto the lined pages of my exercise books rather … Read More

Bride in Boots

May 29, 2013By Erin BalfourInspiration

On one of my many late-night, should-really-be-getting-some-shut-eye, moseying around Pinterest sessions, I came across loads of brides with amazing dresses wearing cowboy boots underneath. I’m up on most trends, thanks to a magazine obsession that began in the first form at big school (Year 7 to all you young ones!), but this one had passed … Read More

Wedding Gifting the Lollyrocket Way

May 29, 2013By Erin BalfourGift Guide

When we lived in Kettering for a bit, the best thing to arrive on the scene was a little shop called Lollyrocket. It was like stepping into the past in the best, best way. It was the antidote to all the usual high street shops, and a vintage/retro lover’s call home. There’s even going to … Read More

Wedding anniversary gift guide

May 27, 2013By Erin BalfourGift Guide

Once the excitement of styling the wedding day has passed, and you settle into happily married life, there is still stuff to look forward to in terms of creativity. We have the anniversaries! I call it (jokingly) the incentivised stepped increase program. You begin with paper on anniversary one, passing through cotton and leather as … Read More
