An Introduction…

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

You may have noticed that we’ve been very quiet on the blogging front recently, mainly due to a hectic wedding season which has kept us busy in so many ways. Good news is that we have a new addition to the team who will be on hand to share all of her gorgeous wedding ideas with you. The lovely Abina (gorgeous bride below) recently got married and created the most beautiful Barn Wedding, which was filled with an abundance of D.I.Y ideas at Loughcrew House so she has no shortage of ideas which will no doubt inspire brides planning their own weddings. Abina & Paddy’s full wedding can be seen over on Brosnan Photographic’s gorgeous blog.

We are very excited to have Abina on board so make sure you stayed tuned for lots of lovely blogs which will be coming your way very soon!!


Decorative Backdrops… wedding trends

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

According to Wedding Guru Abby Larson of the infamous Style Me Pretty blog the top wedding trends of the moment are Pops of Colour, Ombre shading and our ultimate favourite trend at the moment 3. Decorative Backdrops for adorning space at a wedding ceremony or reception. We love all the different ways that you can add a beautiful visual to your wedding with ribbons, colourful fabrics, tissue paper garlands or pom poms. Of course in some cases backdrops are more functional than anything as they may be required to to block out some disastrous interior design, or maybe a faulty window – whatever the reason may be you can’t go too wrong with any of the backdrop ideas below. If you love any of the ideas below but D.I.Y wouldn’t be your strong point get in touch and hopefully we can help! Enjoy. Ax

A simple supper…

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

We recently met with a couple who are planning their wedding and not only are they looking to create a small and intimate event with their closest family and friends but they want to plan a special ‘meal’ rather than a wedding reception where they can chill out and enjoy great food and company. This got us thinking that the meal is the essence of your wedding reception and sometimes so much attention goes into little details such as favours, or the colour of the napkins etc so when putting this blog together we decided to pare it back and look at the wedding reception as a family meal rather than an elaborate event.

With that in mind – this lovely little blog for you today could be saturday supper, ┬ásunday brunch or a special wedding meal we love the simplicity of the table setting with the natural flowers, jars of pickle as favours and menu cards. Enjoy. Ax

Spring Flower D.I.Y

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

You all know how we love a little D.I.Y here at The Bridal Lounge and even more so when it not only involves beautiful spring flowers but also inexpensive and easy ways to decorate your wedding reception! This idea is so simple and gorgeous, you can use these as your table centrepieces or extra decoration for around your wedding venue. Maybe mix different sizes and heights of jars if using for your table decoration!

All you need to create this look are jam jars, mason jars or baby-food jars depending on the size of vase you wish to have. Paint in your chosen colour and bunches of flowers.

1. You simply paint the bottom of clean dry jars. You can paint the whole glass part or maybe half of the glass.

2. Leave jars standing upside down to dry

3. Add your mix of fresh spring flowers to your vases once they are dry. You could also add ribbon to the top of the jars or maybe even some natural raffia tied around the middle of the jars for added effect!
