Being hopeless romantics here at Tilly Ba Lou, we just adore the gloriously happy and deliciously romantic occasion of a wedding. 

From designing and making wedding dresses, to creating the flowers, arranging receptions and theming dreams to perfection …  and so to our very first Wedding Inspiration Board …

Vintage Gray and Linen Wedding Inspiration Board


… a deliciously grown up colour palette of nudes, grays, mauves and heathers.  The casual yet sophisticated garden table dressing by Beth Helmstetter would just as easily lend itself to an indoor reception and this style is truly one where size really does not matter … even 1 table seating 12, on a candle lit patio, would be absolutely gorgeous.

The dress by Maria Lluisa Rabell , is just to die for and its colour is picked out to perfection in the main table flowers.   The brides bouquet of hydrangeas, roses and thistle picks out the deeper warmer colours of the table dressing.  A similar bouquet as featured to the right of the dress is available from The Blossom Tree in Derbyshire from only £29.95.

A simple rose and thistle buttonhole for the groom would be fab against a charcoal gray suit and perhaps a nude coloured linen shirt …… Mmmmmmm yummy …  I personally would love to see the gorgeous lucky fella go tieless too! x

I’d hate this to sound really rubbish but I’m just not finding the perfect wedding cake for the theme … I am willing as ever to be proved wrong though …

I am wanting to put vintage pressed glass cake stands on the tables, piled high with huge fluffy meringues that are sprinkled generously with vanilla sugar and cocoa powder ….  and delicate individual hydrangea florets too … perhaps even sprinkling the odd one or two florets on the linen napkins …  in fact … how about a table full and piled to the moon with meringues too … now that would be different … and yummy!! x

My final find for the day is shown top right and is from Vintage Twee   …….

…Yes the Tilly Ba Lou Vintage Gray hearts are a beautiful favour but these Alice in Wonderland Fortune Tellers are just so cute and so much fun … (and I hasten to add are substantially cheaper) …. Oh well perhaps in my imaginary first wedding, which I hope you’ve enjoyed as much as I have, we can have both!!! xxx … right what’s next …
