Wedding Inspiration

Whilst shopping at ‘Meadowhall’ the other day we came across the most adorable little store. Now I don’t know if it’s just me, but when I was younger I always found ‘the lanes’ to be so mesmerizing. If you don’t know what ‘the lanes’ is, it’s just a selection of some of the smaller shops, which is situated around the food courts. To be honest it reminds me of a market, but in reality it's more difficult to describe than that.  I do remember it to be slightly better, but parts do still have that bit of charm.

We then came across a little shop, which sold allsorts of little trinkets, ornaments, and just interesting little items that you could ponder over for hours. In the far corner, tucked away, was the wedding section. I fell in love.  I love all these things; we could have bought everything here, but would have blown a huge chunk of our wedding budget, so instead we came away with a few pictures.

Not the greatest picture but I wanted to capture all the dangling items. 
I love all the bird cages, and large hearts, but I honestly would only use them for that one day. 

We really wanted the just married, garland? I'm not too sure what you would call it, but it was £8. 
I felt this was a little steep, but I still love it. I may have to get myself a little hacksaw. 

I'm going to attempt to make this, so watch this space...

How pretty.

This just made me awwww.

This was my favourite item, but at £28, unfortunately it will never be mine.
I may scour ebay and see if I can find anything similar for a fraction of the price. 
Wish me luck. 



  1. Ooh you're getting married?! How cute! Congrats :D

    These items are SO gorgeous, I love anything like this! You should be cheeky and ask for that last item as a wedding pressy :P x

  2. Yeah, we're getting married in May! It's only 7 weeks away!
    I can't quite get my head around it.
    I know, but we're going to be even cheekier and ask for money, so we can have a honeymoon.
    In the mean time we're planning on going to York for a few days as our mini honeymoon, and maybe have a proper one for our anniversary.

  3. I just found your blog and it's great :) sounds like you're having fun getting ready for the big day! x

  4. Thank you for following. I am having fun, but it is nerve racking. I also need to get my bum in gear and get on with making the invitations, or no-one with be coming. Haha. x
