Wedding Season Is Approaching...

Wedding Season Is Approaching...

You’ve woken up in a cold sweat “The dress doesn’t fit!”  (Don’t worry, it’s just a recurring dream and wedding fever setting in). You’re constantly flicking through wedding magazines, marking all your favourites, you know exactly which tune you’ll choose for that all important first dance.  You’ve tried on shoes (the gorgeous ones that you know will be so hard to walk in), tiaras and jewellery, and the table plans are all worked out in your head (and remember you really can’t sit Simon next to Uncle Charlie!).  You’ve tasted endless pieces of wedding cake, you’ve changed your mind about the flowers five times and you’re wondering if you really should have invited Uncle Charlie after all.  You need gifts for the bridesmaids and groomsmen and you’re still feeling guilty about making Laura wear pink!  The bridal shower!  Had almost forgotten about that!  The food, the bubbly, the band!  Uncle Charlie hates loud music (perhaps he won’t turn up after all!).   Wedding favours, table decorations, hair, make up and THAT dress…

There seems like so much to think about, but try and remember that the most important thing of all is that this is your big day and a celebration of your love for each other.  You really need to have fun and enjoy every minute of all the hard work that you’ve put in to make this day the best day ever!

So, remember to delegate tasks to those around you (everyone will be only too happy to be involved and help), practice walking in those beautiful shoes, remember to pack your wedding survival kit (tissues, plasters, pain killers, sewing kit, lipstick, nail file etc.) dance, laugh (cry a little) and don’t worry about Uncle Charlie!

Just the thing for the groom!

Just the thing for the groom!

We all know how stressful planning a wedding can be and we’re hoping to take a little pressure off the bride when she’s looking for that perfect gift for her groom! 

Avoid that last minute gift buying panic with our gorgeous new men’s personalised leather belt.  Made from soft and luxurious leather, we can discreetly engrave a personal wedding day message which can include the date, time and location of the special day.  This is the perfect opportunity to tell him “Today YOU can wear the trousers!” 

This was a huge hit at Suz and Ian’s wedding recently and the groom was thrilled to have such an amazing reminder of their special day.

Not just a beautiful gift for the groom, this fabulous belt will also make a superb gift for the best man or groomsmen, or for the father of the bride and/or groom!

You can choose from three colours: dark brown, black or tan and two lengths - 110cm or 120cm.

On The Good Ship Benefit

Whether you’re a seasoned Instagramer, or just dip in and out occasionally to check out what’s new, you can’t have failed to see all the glamorous, fun posts recently popping up with the hashtag #goodshipbenefit featuring our Suzy Q Designs’ absolutely fabulous swizzle sticks, created especially for Benefit Cosmetics at the launch of the Good Ship Benefit, at R.S. Hispaniola.

We were delighted to be involved with this event, and from the moment we were asked to create the ‘Laughter is the Best Cosmetic’ pink cocktail swizzle, the studio was buzzing with excitement and the hum of our laser machine!

A few days (and nights!) later and the studio was awash with a sea of pink acrylic!  Later, armed with a thousand swizzle sticks we set off for Victoria Embankment and The Good Ship Benefit to deliver them on deck. 

It's been wonderful to see so many posts and pictures with our swizzles taking centre stage - we think they were a bit of a hit!

The Good Ship Benefit can be found at Victoria Embankment, WC2N 5DJ where you’ll find a Benefit boutique and brow bar, restaurant and much, more including all sorts of exciting events.
