Around the world in fifty weddings

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

Here at Katie’s Cards, we’re enjoying the fact that wedding season is in full swing and our Facebook feed is constantly full of pictures of happy brides and grooms. Newlyweds Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant are, however, taking the meaning of ‘wedding season’ to a whole new level. The couple have, so far, had 34 weddings in 20 countries around the world! Though they don’t get legally married in each country, they are using the trip to experience the wedding ceremonies of different cultures.

Eco-Friendly Weddings – Featuring Shropshire Petals

Monday, May 20th, 2013

Today’s blog post is about the lovely Shropshire Petals company. Shropshire Petals is a family business which shares our sustainable, eco-friendly ethos and provides a beautiful service for weddings. Eco-friendly weddings are becoming increasingly popular yet sourcing everything you need to make your wedding suitably ‘green’ can be tricky, and that’s where Shropshire Petals comes in.

A lot of venues no longer allow synthetic confetti and so, since throwing confetti over the bride and groom is such a lovely tradition (which dates back over two centuries!), Shropshire Petals decided to come up with an eco-friendly alternative. The result was their beautifully romantic petal confetti.

The flowers are all grown on a farm in Shropshire and each petal is hand-picked. You can choose petals from a wide range of flowers including cornflowers, hydrangea, roses, lavender and delphiniums to create your own unique confetti combination.

We’ve blogged in the past about the ways in which you can try to save a few pennies when planning your wedding and, in the current economic climate, many people are tightening their purse strings. Certain couples haven’t had such concerns … Back in 2002, at the wedding of Liza Minnelli and David Guest, the flowers reportedly cost $700,000 and, in 1991, Elizabeth Taylor’s famous pale yellow Valentino gown cost $30,000. More recently, Prince William and Kate Middleton spent $80,000 on their beautiful eight-tiered cake!
