Bobbi Brown Metallics


The Bobbi Brown Metallics Collection is a beautiful selection of muted shades, perfect to match in with any wedding colour scheme. 
We particularly think the gorgeous high shimmer, high pigments shades are the perfect match with the Pink & Chocolate themes we have been showcasing this week. 
For more information on the Bobbi Brown Metallics Collection see our review.

Strawberry & Chocolate Wedding Theme



A
fter creating our Beautiful Bows Chocolate & Pink styling theme last week, we discovered the most gorgeous collection of Strawberry & Chocolate products from Weddingstar. Designed as a coordinating set you can use one or all of the products to create your stunning wedding. 

Have your guests sign in with style, using the Chocolate & Strawberry Cream Satin Wrapped Pen Set and Guest Book. Your Ring Bearer will look adorable with the Square Ring Pillow, matching perfectly with the Flower Girl’s Basket.

Carry the theme through to your reception with Toasting Flutes and a Cake Serving set, both with Chocolate Bows. The Bridal Garter set will tie your theme together with tradition, with both a keepsake and “toss” garter. 

Thank your bridesmaids with coordinating Gift Bags. These stylish pink and chocolate gift bags are very fun with great little details such as an attached pocket for enclosed card, pink rope handles, embossed pattern and thank you stitching.

Create a sweet bomboniere/favour for your guests using chocolate ribbon printed with your names and wedding dates. Embellish with die-cut flower ribbon in pink. And tie together around a  bomboniere box. Fill with traditional sugar-coated almonds or the modern alternative of Jelly Belly Gourmet Jelly Beans. 

All of the beautiful products shown here are available from Weddingstar.

Beautiful Bows in Chocolate and Pink

Chocolate and Strawberry Theme
We loved this cake so much that we just had to create a Styling Theme around it. The absolutely gorgeous pink bows with the oh-so-cute chocolate polka dots provide a great starting point for creating a sophisticated wedding.
Carry the pink bows through to your bridesmaid's gowns; we love the Donna Karan Silk dress, with a very sweet over-sized bow on the front!
Pink or chocolate chair sashes will set the scene for your reception perfectly. Chocolate and pink stationery in any design will be the perfect accent; the Alannah Rose designs shown here are beautiful examples to inspire you!
Carry the pink or muted chocolate tones through your accessories for the finishing touches to your beautiful bows wedding theme! Choose a simple clutch for your bridesmaids, like the Jimmy Choo clutch shown here. Decorate your and your bridesmaid's hair with classic combs with a hint of pink or a Miu Miu Satin bow.

A Hairfree Honeymoon!

Most brides spend a year-plus planning their big day, so why not use that time to also plan your emancipation from hair-loss forever with permanent laser hair removal at Nads Laser Clinics?

We all love getting our hair done, our manicures, pedicures, facials and tans, but there is one beauty appointment we would all rather not make – to get a wax every six weeks! Even if you choose the relatively painless alternatives of razors and creams you’re still battling itchy in-grows, rapid regrowth and stubbly snuggles! Now there is a solution that has the modern bride in mind.

Just like looking for that perfect diamond, in the world of laser hair removal it’s all about the “C’s”: convenience, comfort, and cost.

Nads Laser Clinics are conveniently located across Sydney in Burwood, Parramatta, Chatswood and the CBD with opening hours that keep the working bride-to-be in mind. Upon entering this hair-loss havana you’re greeted by friendly staff who all share a warm “bedside” manner and are thoroughly versed in the product. You’ll be walked through what to expect from the latest technology (revolutionary lasers for darker-skin, and a unique cooling mechanism to keep treatment as comfortable as possible) as well as a projected time-frame (approximately 8-10 bi-monthly consultations). Best of all you’re quoted by area and not in the 15 minute intervals some clinics offer which can leave you patchy or broke if you run out of funds. Cost-efficient incentives such as the “free Brazilian with full leg” or “bikini-underarm” packages, or the VIP option with lifetime guarantee, will dispel the myth that laser hair removal is financially out of reach. At a time when it seems everything costs more you’ll be surprised how easy it is to be hair free forever – and bikini-ready for your entire honeymoon!
 
Grab hubby-to-be and jump smoothly into life of convenience and spontaneity together. You’ll never look back!

Peaches & Cream Wedding Theme

Peach Wedding
The Bride's Diary team have created this Polyvore to share with you just one of our many styling and wedding theme ideas. Keep posted for more inspiration over the coming weeks!
The gorgeous Vera Wang gown at the centre of this Polyvore provided the inspiration for a stunning Peaches & Cream wedding theme. A Peaches & Cream theme will create a romantic mood for your wedding. 
The first hint of your Peaches & Cream theme will be through your wedding invitations. Here we have used beautiful doily inspired stationery, incorporating both modern and vintage elements.
A vintage feel can be added to this theme further with antique jewellery or a beautiful feathered fascinator. 
Extend the theme to your reception with beautiful centre pieces - we love the  roses in round vases shown here. Candles make a great table decoration and provide mood lighting, or can be used as a bomboniere/favour for your wedding guests. 
For more information about any of the elements used in this theme, simply click on the Polyvore.
