When Wedding Tea Towels met Bears & Butterflies...

It's not often we meet another fabulous husband and wife duo so I was super excited when Rebecca from Bears & Butterflies got in touch so we could compare notes...

Firstly, massive tent love for these guys. Just feast your eyes on this romantic scene.

Then take a look at the full blog post to find out why we decided to start Wedding Tea Towels and if you're just not that bothered about the business mumbo jumbo then discover what three items I just can't live with out... Ooooooohhhhhh I hear you cry! Go now and then tell me your three things in the comments below.

Let's get this wedding started...!

So, you're a fun couple... your guests are fun... and you want your wedding to be fun, right?

So let's kick it all off that way. The chance for you to show everyone your wedding is going to be the best one they've ever been to starts the moment your invitations hit your loved ones grabby little paws.

Why send out a stuffy old paper invite when you could send an Original wedding tea towel and inspire your friends and family to respond to you in amazing ways like this... I mean, imagine how long it took that person to dig out the oldest, scruffiest tea towel they could find and spray 'Yes' on it.

These were balloons btw.

So if you can find me one other invitation that can inspire this level of greatness, I wanna hear about it!

If you want to make your wedding super fun too then email me on and you can see all of our fab designs just here in our Gallery.

Bye for now!

Just realised, popping the question must be really REALLY nerve-wracking. What's your story?

I posted a video this week on our Facebook page of a Policeman proposing to his boyfriend at Gay Pride, it was one of those really heartwarming moments when you know you've just witnessed something special. Man, he must have been nervous.

And this got me thinking something that I haven't ever really given much thought to before... it must be really REALLY nerve wracking to propose.

I guess once you're at that stage, you're pretty confident they are going to say 'Yes' but then the pressure is on the asker to get the setting right, so the 'how did you pop the question?' story is always a winner at dinner parties.

We got engaged in 2007 in Cape Town. Ben had made me this gorgeous photobook of loads of the amazing stuff we'd done together and then the last page was a photo of the ring, and it said 'It's been fun, wanna do it forever?' I said yes and we were getting married. Horray!

Then we went out to a restaurant but I was too excited to eat and the people next to us just kept laughing at me because I spent the whole time gazing at my ring. Like this...

And pretending to talk to people properly but really all I was doing was looking how my ring looked at different angles / in different lights / different settings... had everyone noticed I was now an engaged woman?!

So that's how it happened for us and in case you're wondering Ben was absolutely petrified. So, what's your story?

Then when we got married, we decided to send out wedding tea towels... don't worry though, I'm not going to go through all that again. I'm pretty sure, as you're here with us, you already know how this story ended... and it's a
