It can be extremely difficult to plan your wedding, let alone during a global pandemic, but in these unprecedented times your wedding shouldn’t be forgotten about or thought of as anything other than the special occasion you’ve always dreamt it as.

We want to shine the light on the important, and often forgotten about, finishing touches that can make your big day even bigger. From table decorations to props and outfits, we have created a great place for you to start your search!

As we march into October (didn’t we just start spring?) we can look forward to the colder days where we can wrap up warm and enjoy cosy nights in, and your wedding can apply this theme with warm colours, rustic and vintage decorations.


We have seen brides steer away from the traditional bridal look and instead opt for a perfectly plain silk gown and accessorising it with a fur coat and a statement pair of shoes meaning they look on-trend and can easily wear their outfit again!

Think about the use of lighting to create a warm atmosphere. Depending on how lucky you are with weather on the day itself this can be used as a crucial decoration-come-necessity piece. Fairy lights can be swung from wall to wall or, well, anything you can attach it to – candles as well give a very romantic appeal.

Or why not have a sparkler send off in the evening? – it looks amazing and it’s something that your guests can get involved with!


Micro weddings are becoming more popular than ever with having only several family members and or friends in attendance means you can really enjoy your happiness together.

A small token to them to say thank you for everything will mean the absolute world – create handwritten thank you notes or really personalise their favours. Take inspiration for Halloween and have toffee apples with personalised flavours for each guest. The options when it comes to food is unbelievable – homemade cookies, shortbread and pies can all be tailored to perfection.

This isn’t to say that just because the venue and guest sizes are being shrunk, doesn’t mean that everything else has to as well. We think going big on the things you want is perfectly acceptable, that extra tier on the wedding cake for example, or maybe even having your shoes dyed to match your colour scheme or an autumnal colour!
