10 Sweet Ideas for Brides-to-be

Planning & Advice

It’s not every day you get to be a bride so embrace this exciting time with some gorgeous little touches to make it feel extra special!

1. Wedding Planning Notebook


Keep on top of the to-do list and get the planning excitement off to a fun start with your very own wedding notebook! This cute personalised notebook is from Candy Face Creative on Etsy or you can find more lovely designs here.

2. Ring Holder


Keep your sparkly new engagement safe with its very own ring holder. If you go the personal route with a love quote, initials or monograms, it can double up as a ring dish for your page boy to carry on the Big Day!

7. Wedding Dress Hanger


Getting to put on your gorgeous dress is a serious wedding morning high, so make it even more memorable and meaningful by having your dress displayed on a hanger with ‘Bride’ or your future name on it (if you’re changing it). It’s also a fab wedding keepsake!

8. A Special Scent


If you don’t have a scent you LOVE now is the time to invest in one in honour of the day! The fragrance you choose as your wedding scent is one you’ll remember for a lifetime and has the power to transport you back to that happy day with each and every gorgeous spritz.
