Ahhhh, Friday already. It’s been a busy week for us, how about you? We’ve been photographing a whole host of new wedding decor ready to go live in the boutique next week. Plenty of pretty for you lovely brides and grooms. But until then, we have our fab five wedding ideas we’ve loved on the web this week. Sit down, take the weight off and enjoy. Gingerbread latte for me please!
Back in October we talked about ombré wedding trends here on the blog and treated you to a super-pretty ombré inspiration board over on Pinterest. It’s been popular and we’ve been keeping our beady eyes peeled for anything further to pique your interest. On the first day of the working week, we found it, thanks to the gorgeous Rosie over on Love Luxe. Tis a video tutorial on how to make your very own ombré wedding cake. See! The very lovely (and talented) Autumn from Plumb and Rabbitts makes it look simples, non? Are you tempted to give it a go? Let us know how you get on.
We love sparkles here at Le Trousseau (such girls!) and can often be found perusing online stores for jewels, so were delighted when we came across Rose And Aster. The boutique has been on our radar for some time as its pieces are absolutely stunning (see above pic) and so very reasonably priced. Its owner and curator, Sarah, has recently launched a wedding collection and on Tuesday, we lost ourselves in it for some time! It’s classicly elegant with a vintage bent and we’re pretty sure you’re going to struggle to pick your favourite piece. Do let us know when you decide!
Caught up in somewhat manic moment, swamped by to-do lists and making the most of a morning of moaning (too much alliteration?!), we were soon reminded of just how great life is thanks to The Wedding Reporter. Each Wednesday Emma adds her Wonderful Wednesday Words to the blog and today’s were just what we needed…Thank you.

Tweeting away (as we do) on the penultimate day of the working week, we saw Rebecca of Florence Finds directing us to her super-smashing-great blog using the intriguing hashtag #ShareAdvent. Now being a biiig fan of Christmas and indeed the whole festive season, I didn’t take much persuading to leave my work and head on over to the blog to see what she was talking about. Shen then linked to another great blog that goes by the name of Skin and Blister and in particular the #ShareAdvent post. And we were smitten! It’s all about the build up to Christmas and making it even more special by creating 25 different ways to enjoy each day in celebration of the season. It’s such a simple thing to do, but one that we often forget, thanks to our busy lives. This is a great reminder. Granted, it’s not wedding related, but during what can be a hectic time in your life, it’s nice to take a break and think about something other than gowns, flowers and fabulous shoes. We are so pleased to be involved and will be blogging our 25 on Monday, so check back then. In the meantime, will you join the Advent-ure?
PS ~ You can read our tweets about wedding decor and general loveliness here: Chirp!
Have wonderful weekends and I look forward to seeing you next Friday for five more wedding ideas we’ve loved on the web this week.
