With so much downtime for Brides and Grooms over the last year to plan their wedding, Petal and Roses have seen a lot more thought and meaning going into the big day. Due to delayed wedding dates couples have had to face a lot of challenges such as having to reconsider flowers with their favourites no longer in season, cakes and menus have had to be re-imagined. This however has had no impact in pulling out all the stops albeit on a smaller scale.
Luxe wedding invites are still on trend, after all they do lead the introduction as to the style of your wedding. Brides and grooms can express their personalities through these so it’s not unusual to source invitations that feel unique and personal to you. Cartalia welcome the opportunity to work on designing their own unique stationary for your event. From luxury intricate laser cutting, bespoke illustrations of your venue to custom design envelopes and wax seals they will help you visualise and create something one of a kind.
With lots of restrictions still in place regarding travel, many couples are bringing their destination weddings a little closer to home. Whilst some are selecting picturesque locations within the UK, others are taking advantage of the limited guest list and hosting an intimate wedding breakfast in their favourite fine dining restaurant.
This summer you can even tie the knot in one of London’s most luxurious department stores, Selfridges. The Grade II-listed store on Oxford Street is offering three different packages, at the top-end, the All-Out Extraordinary which will see you make your vows in their extravagantly decorated Wedding Lounge followed by gourmet dining in a private dining room at the Brasserie of Light. Couples can take advantage of fashion advice from the retailer’s stylists and have their hair and makeup done in store ahead of the ceremony.
Tablescapes have been more a priority with couples, becoming more intimate and elaborate due to guests having to spend more time seated. Petals and Roses have seen an array of elegant setups including a lot of luxe linens, crystal glassware, overgrown centrepieces, layered china and lots of candles.
