Happy Good Friday everyone. I hope you are all well and happy and enjoying the...
Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you are all having a great week so far? Today I am taking you off to a gorgeous outdoor wedding in Surrey. Meghan and James wanted to hold an outdoor woodland ceremony but with the benefit of an indoor barn reception. They found everything they needed at Gate Street Barn. They filled their ceremony area with the most delightful flowers and their barn venue with gorgeous table decorations and a marble effect wedding cake. I just love Meghan’s Grace Loves Lace gown, she looks totally stunning. The whole day is gorgeous. Big thanks to Jessica Grace Photography for the wonderful photos.
Meghan and James were married on 5th August 2021 at Gate Street Barn in Guildford, Surrey. ‘We wanted an outdoor wedding because we love being outdoors, the woods were beautiful and also offered shade. We had 80 guests.’
As you know the cost of living has sky rocketed recently, which isn’t ideal in any situation, let alone when you are planning a wedding. Suddenly your wedding budget may not be stretching quite as far as you first thought. So it may be time to get creative and start looking at getting some of your wedding items second hand. I have seen plenty of weddings on the blog where couples have sourced their items from flea markets, second hand shops and Facebook market place and the results are just as stunning as if they had bought everything brand new.
You could always look into wedding loans but I prefer to advice against this, or you could trim down the guest list to save on catering costs. There are many ways to reduce your budget, but considering purchasing certain wedding items second-hand is also a good option. Doing so can save you some money, and it shouldn’t make your special day any less memorable.
Here we have some tips for buying wedding items secondhand that will make your special day more affordable.
Unless you plan on having a shotgun wedding, you probably have at least a few months to assemble everything you need. Some couples set a wedding date more than a year after announcing their engagement.
If you don’t have a ton of money to spend on the wedding, you can start hunting for second-hand items as far in advance as possible. That way, you’re more likely to find some alternatives if you don’t want to purchase everything brand new.
There are many online marketplaces like OfferUp, Ebay or Facebook Market Place, where you can look for gently used wedding items. You can even set alerts when something that matches your search parameters goes on sale.

Choosing your wedding look is one of the most fun aspects of your wedding planning. However, there are also a lot of decisions to be made. There is so much focus on choosing the right dress to go with your style, shape and type of wedding, but there are many other factors to think about. Hair and make up also play a big part, shoes, accessories and of course your wedding jewellery. Once you have your dress locked down, then it is up to the jewellery you choose to really make you feel like the most fabulous of brides. Today we are going to be looking at the many options of jewellery on offer to you and what things to consider when choosing it.
There is so much choice when it comes to wedding jewellery these days. From metals, to stones, to the way you wear them. You may choose to go for a classic look with diamonds and platinum, or you may want to mix it up with coloured gems and a chunkier look.
Jewellery you can choose from:
Hair jewellery. You can wear a headband, hair vine, tiara, flower crown made of metal flowers, hair combs, hair pins, the choice is endless.
Hand Jewellery. Try to avoid wearing too many rings on your engagement hand as this will detract attention away form your brand new wedding ring.
Bracelets. If you want to stay away from too many rings on your big day, then why not look at a statement bracelet instead or something classic and timeless.
