Don't Tell The Bride

You’ll receive the warmest of welcomes – on your arrival you and your guests will be greeted with a cup of tea or coffee, or even a nice cold glass of bubbly if you fancy it! You’ll be guided to our comfy seating area whilst we have a quick chat and get to know you and what you’re looking for. Then the shopping can begin! 
I’ll be honest here, the gift list was one of the planning tasks that I was most looking forward to. Our favourite American rom-coms often depict happy couples scanning to their hearts’ content in a fancy department store, and as a self-confessed shopaholic, I couldn’t wait to get in on the action! Whether you’re opting for a traditional gift list or donations towards your honeymoon or house fund, there are a few things that are worth keeping in mind during the planning stages and after your wedding. 
Be grateful. After our wedding a couple of my friends asked me if I was upset that we didn’t get the coffee machine, I guess I was a little bit disappointed that I would have to carry on drinking instant coffee, but I was on such a high after my wedding and honeymoon that it really didn’t matter to me at all. We were surprised by the generosity of our friends and family and certainly were thankful for the lovely cards and shiny new household gifts we received. 
1. Start with the basics: colour. Pick a main colour scheme which complements the rest of your wedding but don’t be afraid of pops of colour! Do bright orange blooms really look the part when paired with a pastel palette of bridesmaids dresses? Don’t forget to think about the colours and style of your venue if you’re having floral centrepieces.
