Our Favourite Colours for Spring Weddings

Yes we know, it stops raining for - like - a minute and we're already mentally out of Winter and into the Spring. But we can't help ourselves, and we're dreaming up some beautiful designs for some of our 2019 Spring couples! Here are just a few of our faves right now.

DUSTY BLUE + BLUSH

An incredibly versatile colour palette that just works wonders in the Spring. It's relaxed, it's romantic, it's an easy one to achieve. And how to die for is this blue dress?

Pale Grey + Dark Green

For the minimalist in you - a subtle palette of shades and dark green foliage. A total dream and perfect for anything from a London warehouse to a French chateau. Jazz it up with a metallic like copper, gold or rose gold for a bit of glam.

Yellow, Lavender + Grey

Could this look any more fresh AF? It's such an eye-catching colour palette and you can go as subtle or over the top as you like with how much yellow you include in this, using it as a base or just in a few pops.

8 unique London wedding venues that make you want to say I do

Engagement season is on upon us again, and with all the newly betrothed couples from Christmas and New Year making a start on their wedding planning we thought we could lend a hand with some amazing wedding venues you might otherwise miss.

1. Victorian Bath House

This quirky venue is hidden in plain sight in the city of London. Descend the stairs and uncover  opulent Victorian decor like you've never seen before. It doesn't have a license to perform ceremonies but has the wow factor for a reception and can hold up to 150 people. http://www.victorianbathhouse.co.uk/

2. Hackney Round Chapel

The Round Chapel is a total dry hire, perfect if you want to put your own spin on the place. Oozing old school grandeur, this Grade II listed chapel opened in 1871. You'll be blown away by it's unique architecture and unusual shape. http://www.roundchapel.org/

3. Union Club

Tucked away in Soho lives a private members club full of charm, history, great food and amazing staff. Perfect for smaller weddings of up to 60 guests, you can take over the entire club as if it were your own home. http://www.unionclub.co.uk/

4. Cutty Sark

Looking to capture a bit of history on your wedding day, then try the last remaining tea clipper as a venue. The iconic Cutty Sark, nestled in Greenwich, is the only place in the world where you can entertain beneath the shining hull of a ship. http://www.rmg.co.uk/cutty-sark

5. jj Wimborne

Airy bright studios with tons of character situated in the impossibly cool Hackney with a roof top that overlooks London. Sounds like a great place to get hitched to us.  https://jjmedia.com/weddings

6. Secret River Garden

Imagine a hidden woodland where the river Thames meets Twickenham. So secret they only do four weddings a year. It's not licensed but you can have a blessing between the apple trees and feel like you're in the hidden countryside when you're in fact 20 minutes from Waterloo.  https://www.facebook.com/secretrivergarden/

7. Ravens Ait Island

Another Thames wedding spot, but this time on your very own island. Situated on the river at Kingston with beautiful views of the Thames and Hampton Court, you'll feel like you're in your own world at this exclusive venue. http://ravensait.co.uk/

8. The Ned

The recently opened Ned Hotel is in the heart of London.  The historic building, designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens almost a century ago, has been carefully restored, retaining many original period features, including walnut panelling and vintage chandeliers, as well as ample arched windows to allow for plenty of natural light. See if you can sneak a peak at the members bar down in the bank vault as well. https://www.thened.com/

Wedding Tablescapes 101

best creative wedding planner london

Your wedding table is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you start thinking about what your wedding will actually look like. It's when your guests really get to be up close and personal (and sometimes even interactive) with your chosen design.

But, in our experience, we've seen couples tie themselves into knots trying to figure it out, get a little bit overwhelmed overthinking it or, worse, not thinking enough about it.

Planning your wedding tables falls into two different categories - design and logistics. Let's kick off with the latter.


What do you actually need on the table?

The answer to this will differ according to what style of dining you're going for.

If you're having a plated meal across a number of courses, the formal option is likely where you're headed. For more relaxed, perhaps family-style sharing platters or a buffet you might have something closer to the informal diagram.

It's really important not to underestimate how much room each guest will need at the table, so avoid packing people in at tables. If you're having a formal dinner for example, take the maximum number of people you could fit at each table and take away one - eg. a 5.5ft round table can seat between 9 and 11 people, so don't try to fit more than 10 if your dining is more formal.

Don't forget the extras

This is all, of course, what each individual needs at the table. But lots of couples forget to plan room for the shared items like salt and pepper, menus, table names/numbers, bottles of wine and water - and that's before you even get to the centrepieces!

best wedding planner london
best wedding planner london

If you're having sharing platters, you'll have less room to play with for centrepieces so be aware that you'll have to opt for something minimal with a big impact like some gorgeous, statement candles in between plates or a foliage runner that plates can be laid on.

Decorations

A dynamic tablescape comes about with a number of factors:

Colour and texture - standard plain, white linens do not a great tablescape make. Add a colour or even a pattern to one or both tablecloths and napkins. Contrasting colours look beautiful, or even hues of one colour family. Layer different colours and textures together - such as an antique paper scroll place name on a clean, crisp napkin. Or a sprig of foliage against a gold charger plate.

Upgrades - if budget allows, you can add in design touches by upgrading your cutlery to something a little more special (maybe copper or gold) and ordering in charger plates that work for your overall design.

Rule of three - grouping your tabletop decor into three is just plain pleasing to the eye, it's science. Clusters of votive candles or individual vases on a table looks gorgeous and creates a dynamic look super easily.

best wedding planner london

Varying heights - similar to the rule of three, creating various heights with your decor and centrepieces goes a long way. Perhaps it's a row of flower arrangements on a long trestle at different heights, or tall taper candles standing out against a low foliage runner. Just make sure the heights aren't so high your guests can't see each other!

Personality

Don't be afraid to add a few miscellaneous items to the table by way of decor, if you have the space. Perhaps something that ties into the table's name, or that hints at your combined hobbies and who you are as a couple. 

And speaking of personal, don't be afraid to get creative with your place names either - there are some fantastic and beautiful design options that mean your guests will be over the moon to take their little name token home with them as a keepsake of your day.

The Unruly Wedding Show: What went down!

The Unruly Wedding Show took place in Hackney on Sunday 29th October 

Our modern rulebook-free take on wedding shows got off to a bang (literally) with Prosecco and donuts for the first 50 guests through the door, and from then on it was a jam packed day of workshops, demos, surprise entertainment and suppliers.

We absolutely loved creating the show and putting on a day for nearlyweds that was interactive and fun with a real laid back vibe. We think pictures speak a thousand words so here is a snippet of how the day took shape.

If you're interested in being a 2018 supplier or want to go on the mailing list for 2018 tickets you can email us at hello@jointherevelry.com or pop over to our Unruly page and enter your details in our contact form.

 

 

Wedding Ideas: Nude + Natural

Get your mind out of the gutter, we're talking about nude and neutral colour palettes. Calm yourself.

Oh yes, everything from Kylie Jenner's Lip Kit palette to the latest Yeezy season colours (wow, are all my references Kardashian related?), everything is coming up earth tones.

Blush, taupe, biscuit, buff, nude, eggshell (yes these are real colour names). Neutral colours are next season's biggest colour trend.

As with the crisp white Scandi looks of this and last year's weddings, nude palettes pop best with lush greens, natural textures like wood, and soft textiles like organza or velvet. It's got both a luxe and an earthy, natural feel which makes it work whether you're in a luxury ballroom or a tent in the wilderness.

Have a look at some of our nude pics. *cough* I mean nude inspired colours for weddings...

5 Alternative Wedding Entertainment Ideas

For some couples, the words "wedding entertainment" conjures up images of bad DJs and cheesy magicians (maybe from watching our parents weddings on VHS? Just a thought). But guys, it's 2017 - and a brave new wedding entertainment awaits you. Here are our top five alternative ideas for wowing your guests and making your day absolutely perfect!

For the Ceremony

Instead of the usual pre-ceremony Spotify playlist, string quartet or your favourite instrumentals over the sound system as you walk down the aisle, think bigger and choose a live performance of a song (or songs) that mean something really special to you.

 Howell Photography

Have a choral performance of a modern mashup, or undercover singers popping up at the perfect moment to sing you down the aisle.

For the Drinks Reception

Instead of trays or a bar, surprise your guests with strolling tables - waitresses wearing outfits made out of shelves or tables to display your tasty food and drink options!

 Cleo Entertainment

Cleo Entertainment

For the kids (but let's face it, also the adults) hire a bubble performer to wow your guests during cocktail hour or while you have your family photos taken!

For the Dinner

Even though guests are occupied for the most part with the food in front of them during the wedding meal, there will still be some lag time between courses - so why not fill it with a little bit of complementary entertainment?

Turn your reception into a comedy club for half an hour, and ramp up to your speeches with a short set from a stand-up comedian! Or have a close-hand magician go table to table to mystify your guests...

 The Singing Waiters

The Singing Waiters

And if you're feeling even more brave, look into some singing waiters to perform after your mains! Will never fail to surprise and delight!

For the First Dance

We think it's safe to say not everyone enjoys swaying alone in the middle of a circle of 150 of your closest friends and family, so why not enlist some professional help? Sway for a few bars and then bring on a dance performance of pros to draw guests onto the dance floor and learn some new moves! A few years ago we had Brazilian dancers storm the dance floor after the first dance and really get the party started!

For the Party

Amp up your DJ set by bringing in a saxophonist to play along with the music - trust us, we've used this for two weddings now, and it hasn't failed to heighten an already amazing time of the night with a bit of spectacle!

When it comes down to it, it's your wedding day and you should feel able to break the rules of what you've seen of weddings past - do your own thing and entertain how you would want to be entertained!

10 Creative Wedding Ceremony Backdrops

Having the perfect ceremony backdrop is like creating a personalised frame around that perfect image of the moment you finally say I Do (or 'I will' if you want to get legal). It's the most important photo you'll get of this life-changing day, which is why a lot of couples go all out on what's behind them. It's a great opportunity to put your stamp on your ceremony and your venue, and get creative!

Here are some of a few of our favourite designs and ideas for ceremony backdrops, whether you're indoors or outdoors, using everything from lighting and flowers to laser cut signs and entire bespoke structures!

Evening Wedding Dresses to Die For

Why have one bridal look when you can have two? Sometimes the vision you have of yourself in one gown for your ceremony entrance, isn't the same as the one you have of you tearing it up on the dancefloor. So why not split the cost of one dress and indulge in two ready-to-wear outfits for day and night?

Here are our top picks for the perfect reception ensemble!

ALL IN ONE

The humble jumpsuit is quickly becoming a glam wedding staple, and is perfect for a little more movement as the night draws in.

4 amazing ways to get wedding guests from A to B

When you've got to get your wedding guests from one venue to another and you don't want to make them pay for taxi's or even worse, travel in their own cars so they can't drink, you need to have a plan in place to transport the herd. We've rounded up four of our favourite ways for wedding guests to travel.

London Bus

The classic route master never gets old. Guests love to hop on and travel back in time with these old London buses. There are loads of companies offering this and it's a stylish but economical way to get your wedding guests to the reception.

Boat

Organise for your guests to travel by knots after you've tied the knot with a boat ride, just maybe don't serve too much Champagne on the way!

Tractor

If you're out in the countryside for your big day then don't underestimate the power of the tractor. Not only will it be great for pictures but it's a practical way to get your guests from A to B.

Rickshaws

The most eco friendly of vehicles and you don't have to do the pedalling! These aren't just for the bride and groom, hire a fleet of them and you can transport your wedding party to your next location.

Wedding Ideas | Signage

Whether it's a friendly welcome sign or a functional bathroom direction, wedding signage is a great opportunity to work something functional into your theme and design.

Believe us, weddings guests love to know where they're going, what they are meant to do and how. Nothing is too obvious.

Here's a roundup of our favourite designs and the signs you don't want to forget about on your big day!

Wedding Decor Brides Always Leave to the Last Minute

It's the final weeks, maybe even days before the big day. You're counting down with excitement but also dread, thinking about all the last minute bits and pieces you need to get finished - final headcount for the caterer, break in your new shoes, flowers for the mums. And then an arbitrary look at Pinterest sets you into a panic.

There are just some bits of wedding decor that couples always seem to leave until the last panicked minute. Here's a handful of the ones you really want to make sure you have sorted in those last few months!

http://www.modwedding.com/

Signage

If your wedding venue is out in the sticks or perhaps just a little bit hidden, setting up a few signs to let your guests know they are in the right place will avoid a lot of confusion (and phone calls).

And if things are a little bit spread around in your venue, make sure you have a few directional signs to let guests know what's happening where. Or even where the toilets are! Some venues are a bit of a rabbit warren, or in the case of festival style weddings - very spread out! So giving guests an idea of where they should be going will be so helpful.

Seating Plans

It's unlikely you've forgotten to sort out a seating plan (we hope) but when it comes to displaying it, some couples haven't thought it through. If it's a mirror or a printed plan, ask your venue if they have an easel or another way of displaying it. If it's hung, have you ordered everything you need to be able to hang it?

Confetti

Always, always, always a last minute one - the confetti. Many couples don't think much of it, thinking that it's so common they will be able to order it on Amazon or pick it up from Tesco on the way to the wedding....

But in many cases, venues need bio-degradable or even dried petals because of their rules (some historical venues will only allow white petals only because of fear the colours will damage floors!). Make sure you know what you are allowed, and leave plenty of time to order it from a provider or from your florist. They will need to make sure they have at least a few weeks to sort it out, as they will also need to order enough flowers to provide it.

Etsy

Guest Book and Pens

For most people these days, guest books are an afterthought. But make sure you get something. Yes, your guests will likely write some nice things in their cards, but most people don't keep all their wedding cards. So a book is an opportunity to keep a record of all your guests in one place.

And don't forget the pens!

For some more interesting options, see our blog post from last year on Gorgeous Guestbooks

https://uk.pinterest.com/pin/518265869602754349/

Bathrooms

Lots of couples decide to add a little personal touch to the venue's bathrooms. A handy little basket of goodies like gun, deodorant, combs, hair clips, hand cream and other lovely bits to refresh your guests after a hard night on the dancefloor. If nothing else, you'll appreciate not having to locate your handbag before you head to the toilets to sort out your hair!

Little Black Book | BerinMade

If you're anything like us at Revelry HQ, you go a bit nuts for paper goods. A trip to Paperchase is like Disneyland, you always have a cute, new notebook on the go, and your Pinterest boards are filled with the most gorgeous invitations.

If you're anything like us, you're going to LOVE BerinMade, London stationery and design studio. Let's catch up with founder Erin and designer Lana!

wedding planner london

Tell us a little bit about BerinMade and how it came to be?

E: I started the company in 2012 after taking the plunge to quit my 9-5 working in an auction house. My degree was in Fine Arts and ever since graduation, I longed to be creative again and manage something of my own. After I got married, I fell in love with stationery and paper goods. It was hugely inspired by all the amazing things you could do with paper, and 5 years on, I still feel the same way.

We specialise in wedding and events stationery, greeting cards and lifestyle gifts. Our philosophy is to always push the boundaries of what we can do with paper, and I believe that is reflected in every project that we work on. I want our clients to fall in love with paper goods the way that I did. Even though we are now a small team, each one of us feel the same way and have the same passion for our products.

Our wedding clients are treated like special guests. Lana is our wedding project manager and the main contact for most wedding clients; she and I work together to ensure that our brides are taken care of and their project goes seamlessly. Often clients don't realise that stationery projects need a lot of management. There is timeline, production technicalities, supplier co-ordination; clients need to be kept in the loop, know all their options, have the right expectations. It's a stressful time for them, and sometimes they can feel out of their depth with so many things to learn and to manage, especially when it's a technical aspect- and it's our job to put that at ease. It's often not just a design-job, it can be a bit of an operation. I would say that apart from our designs and signature style, that is an added bonus that sets us apart from other companies.

creative london wedding planner

We'll say! How would you describe your style of paper goods?

E: We do a varied range but mostly you'll find that we love a bit of bold pattern, floral illustrations, unexpected but beautiful colour combinations, with a touch of metallic. With weddings we're really into special formats that tell your story, whether that's a geometric fold out invitation with glittered panels, or travel-guide inspired booklets for a destination wedding. So for us, it's all about telling a story as well as making it look beautiful and worthy for a wedding in the process.

What is your favourite kind of thing to work on?

E: The best briefs come in Pinterest boards that are not stationery-related! They can be full of fashion, interiors, flowers, fun objects to do with the couple- things that really tell their style. We are then able to translate that into paper form and often clients are so amazed by the unique-ness of their bespoke design and how much it represents them, because it's so unlike anything else they have seen out there! 

L: Definitely a lot of foiling! Erin's hand lettering and illustrations make the perfect details to foil, I fall in love every time. Another heart-throb would be all the lovely patterns we create with Erin's amazing illustrations. Do yourself a favour and don't miss our wrapping paper!

What has been your craziest or most fun brief for a wedding?

E: Last year we did a brief for a Mexican-fete inspired wedding and it was one of the most fun projects I've ever worked on. The couple were a dream to work with, giving us an idea of what they liked and letting us run wild with ideas. I illustrated a full set of colourful stationery with gorgeous gold foiling details, as well as scalloped pockets inspired by papel picado. It was an ambitious project in terms of production, a lot of things took a while to figure out, and the results came out like a dream!

creative wedding planner london

You have a new book out! Amazing! What's it about and who is it for?

E: Thank you! My new (and first) book is called Paper Parties. It features 50 paper projects for every celebration, and covers parties across engagements, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries as well as holidays. I'm really excited about its unique format which has a coffee table inspiration lookbook at the front (like browsing through pinterest with me), and then followed by detailed instructions in the back of how the lookbook items. It means that flipping through it is just as enjoyable as using it as a manual.

It includes my favourite colour and decor trends, themes and schemes and has lots of inspiration and tips on the most fun and heart-filled celebrations to share with your family and friends. There are lots of inspiration and projects suitable for weddings too, but what i love about it it the most is that they are not super "weddingy" but rather things that can be translated well, like white crepe sea foam chair-backs, irridescent gem cake toppers, flower crowns. It's a title under the "craft" section but I think it does straddle design and lifestyle, too. You can see more inside the book here

creative london wedding planner

Why should wedding day stationery not be an after-thought?

L: Most of the time we think of wedding stationery as practical items that is just a necessity to give information through to the guests. The amazing thing about wedding day stationery that gets overlooked is that it can tie your whole theme together, serve as decor in and around your venue, greet and guide your guests with something that is special and still have the bonus of being practical. 

E: I agree with Lana. As well as conveying a set of information about the day itself, the stationery should be worked out as part of the decor and overall experience for your guests. So many things about our world now is to do with the digital and social media, so when you can make an impact on the tangible aspects, it really makes your celebration memorable for your guests.

creative london wedding planner

What tips do you have for couples trying to figure out what the want for their wedding stationery?

L: Your wedding day is one of the most public displays of you as a couple, this is where your inspiration must come from. Instead of just trying to keep up with the newest trends or going with what everybody else is doing, be true to who you are as a couple. Look at the highs that you enjoy most, what makes your heart beat faster and through that we create a reflection of you as a couple.

E: So much goes into wedding that it's often exhausting to think of your options. With your wedding stationer it's important to go with your heart, and someone you click with. If you're going for something extra special, it's important to find a designer that clicks with your sense of aesthetic and tastes!

Trendwatch: Minimalist Luxe

If you, like so many brides these days, are finding yourself in a Pinterest-fuelled downward spiral of design ideas and detail options for your wedding day, then you are going to love this new wedding trend.

Modern minimalism with a luxury feel. This design concept is about stripping back, doing a few things really well, and forgetting about the rest. It's clutter free and clean, and we love it.

Clean lines and simplicity, often very muted colours or white with a metallic or green touch. Letting the day speak for itself rather than letting the decor become overbearing.

This design is very much about quality over quantity, putting the emphasis back on the important areas like good food, good music and a good time. 

We love the emphasis on modern, straight-to-the-point fonts which are so refreshing!
