Yay! It feels like summer is finally here…so we’re breathing a big sigh of relief and keeping our fingers firmly crossed that our upcoming weddings will be graced with sunshine, warm nights and outdoor fun…we hope so at least. We have a couple of weeks to go before the third Just Bespoke wedding of the year and it looks set to be pretty special indeed so no doubt you’ll be hearing a bit more about it over the next few weeks – especially if you follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
However, aside from client work, we have also been keeping our eyes peeled for some wedding ideas for you to incorporate into your own big day…so here are this week’s Mid-Week Musings.

This year, lots of our clients are looking to us to find quirky ways for them to offer food and drink at their weddings and we are seeing lots of food and drink station ideas emerging. This one in particular caught our eye – the Bloody Mary Bar. It’s fun and interactive for guests and allows them to make their own Bloody Mary to their tastes. Other options we are seeing include Taco Stations and Pancake Tables. These are also a great idea if you are planning on throwing a Rehearsal Dinner or even a Morning After Brunch as these tend to be less formal and food stations lend themselves really well to these occasions.

There continues to be a love for miniature cakes at weddings this summer and these cute, delicate and stylish cake stands are a perfect way to display them. The platforms are draped in hanging jewels to create a really beautiful yet practical decoration. Rather than making them ourselves, we’d love to source some ready-made for a wedding this summer, so if anyone knows where we can get our hands on some, please do drop us a line!

Earlier on today, we were doing some research for a wedding later this year and we cast our eyes upon this beautiful bouquet – and more importantly the beautiful wispy pink filler-type flowers. After a quick shout-out on Twitter to our florist friends, they were identified as Astilbe Japonica and we fell in love! They are perfect and so pretty and we have a feeling that they are going to become one of our firm favourites…
So, there you have it for this week…do let us know what you think!
Enjoy the sunshine!
