Get your stationery looking pretty

You can’t go back to school (hypothetical or not!) without a new set of notebooks and pens, now where would the fun in that be. Weekly plans, a weekly countdown to your big day, appointments not to be missed and to-do lists all will look prettier on a cute journal, diary or notebook! Go on you know you want to! Some of our favourites can be found at Paperchase, Rifle Paper Co. and Kikki K. 

Revise and refresh yourself with your choices so far

This is not a chance to change your mind about things you might have picked but a quick revision lesson on the direction, style and feel you are going with for your Big Day. It’ll also help you discover any elements you might have forgotten about.
