Real wedding - Helen & Dean

Hooray! Hooray! One of our couples is showing their wedding on the fabulous Whimsical Wonderland Weddings blog, and you really should check it out because it is all kinds of stunning. The full blog is here.

But in the meantime, let's just take a moment to look at their wedding tea towels draped so beautifully on the back of their chairs... on the top table, no less! The most prestigious spot they could have hoped for! These guys have really fulfilled their wedding tea towel destiny. (or actually, would that be to spend a lifetime drying up... anyway...)

Congratulations Helen & Dean. Your whole day looked perfect and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together xx

The actual Princess and a wedding tea towel...

Look! It's Belle. In Disney, Florida. Next to one of our wedding tea towels. WAAAAAAHHH!!

I can only imagine how confused she must have been but who cares! It can't be the strangest thing she's ever been asked to have her photo taken next to. The coolest probably though.

This photo has also earned me super mummy points with our four year old daughter!

Nothing more to say on this except for, once again, WAAAAAAAHHHH!!

If you want your friends to be able to hunt down a Disney Princess with one of your invitations like Lee & Katie's lovely friend did, then you need to go straight to our design page here or email me on

It really is a small world after all.

Unbelievable way to remember every moment of your wedding.

So you've got a lovely photo album on the side to remember your wedding day by, have you? Perhaps a few beautiful shots dotted around your house? Us too.

BAM! Look at what Scott & Melanie have done. They've totally upstaged us all and had a wedding quilt made. Well. I. Never!

Here is what Melanie had to say about this lovely creation:

I decided that one of the most expensive things I've ever bought, that I wore on the best day of my life, didn't deserve to be shut away in the wardrobe, never to be admired again (stains and all!) sooooo my wedding dress met the scissors!

My friend, Jane's, awesome seamstress skills have made my wedding dress quilt a reality. I managed to incorporate everything from our tea towel favour, marquee bunting and the tie my bother wore to the sash from my hen party, Scott's tartan and even the material we brought on our Kenyan honeymoon. So many stories all sewn into one!

This may have been a silly question on reflection but I asked if they were planning on using it, and if like me, you are wondering what the plan is, then I can tell you they are going to hang it in their stairwell. Proud as punch, which is exactly what it deserves!

Thanks so much for sharing this with us Melanie! Safe to say, we likey. A lot!

Until next time gang...

Save your guests, a million (approx) 5p's...

Keeping in the favour theme of our last post... if you ask me, this is quite possibly the most useful favour you could give your guests at the moment. 

Gorgeous to look at, mega handy and with the superhero ability to save your friends and family (approx) £1 million per year in 5p coins - THE CANVAS LOVE BAG!

We been in love with these little beauties for some time now. We introduced them to our range back in 2011 but they couldn't fight off the pull of mighty tea towel and they've lived in their shadow ever since (sob). But wait, they've been sitting in the wings patiently and now it is the Canvas Love Bag's time to shine!

We think that these bags work best as favours or save the dates 
(and would compliment a tea towel invitation just perfectly)

The Love Bags are available in all of our designs so if you'd like to see an example in your favourite design, want more info on pricing or need anything else then just email me on or to see our full tea towel range take a look here.
