I hope you have something fabulous planned.
I’ll be busy beavering away on the backend of the blog this weekend.
For those of you who have ever gone through a new website design, it’s all-consuming isn’t it? A bit like wedding planning, really!
And I’ve been just as indecisive as I was when it came to choosing my wedding dress.
Yes, designer friends, I’m that girl.
However, after months spent agonising over every minute detail, I’m counting down the days till I finally get to share the new and improved Bridal Musings with you all!

Chalkboards are massive right now and have such a beautiful soft textural quality.
It is a great basic theme to build on and can be really elegant and personal.
To recreate this look at your wedding:
- Use textures in your dress and decorations – laces, suede, tissue paper garlands, wood etc.
- Chalkboards look fab with chalky tones so follow through in decorations; white tonal flowers with a hint of palest green or blush.
- Anemones really bring life to this look with their beautiful rich centres and work beautifully with succulents and pale silvery green leaves.
- Dramatic hanging garlands can really add wow to your ceremony space – you can use anything to create this look from scraps of fabric cut into strips and paper chains to our current fave – strings of threaded carnation heads which are really easy to DIY and look fabulously opulent.
Thanks so much, Rose.
I just adore chalkboard wedding inspiration - the ceremony backdrop/photobooth concept above is awesome. Don’t you think?
