Monsoon Estella Dress

We just love Monsoon’s estella dress for younger bridesmaids and flower girls, it comes in several different colours and has a very beautiful vintage style feel. This gorgeous little dress can be teamed up with little cardigans and gorgeous accessories which will definitely give your wedding the cute factor!

The great thing is that for a limited time there is £10 off these very lovely dresses, in sizes that would fit a tiny flower girl up to 13 years old, this is one bargain worth checking out!

Pantone Colour of the Year – Radiant Orchid

We definitely approve of pantone’s choice for colour of the year 2014, don’t you think that it fits in perfectly with Engaged’s branding? Pantone have chosen radiant orchid as their colour of the year and there is already a web full of inspiration of how to incorporate this gorgeous tone in your wedding plans. We’ve popped a radiant orchid inspired board together on pinterest to get you started, let us know what you think!

Monochrome by Coast

I’m starting to think of wedding outfits, the first wedding I’m going to this year is in April so I have to hit the high street soon to find the perfect dress. I’m loving monochrome at the moment and Coast has an amazing selection of pieces that would look great at a wedding but would be wearable afterwards to other occasions.

Phase Eight Bridal Gowns

This week I caught sight of the gorgeous new bridal gown collection by High Street store Phase Eight and I couldn’t resist not sharing an image of one of the new dresses hitting their stores soon. Their new collection is inspired by glamourous Hollywood and we have images of the whole collection featuring next week. This dress is beautiful. I just love the lace detailing and beautiful belt, it is a stunning dress!

Mint and Magenta by the sea

We have been loving mint and pink together at the moment, the colours go together so well and we’ve been pinning a mint and pink inspiration board for a little while. So when this shoot came in from roohi photography we had to post it. This styled shoot is set on a beach and includes the colours with an seaside twist. It has us dreaming of summer!

What will 2014 bring for your wedding business?

Tuesday brings our new business matters feature, tips, hints and advice from some of the top folk in the wedding business, we have some great experts gracing the pages of the blog over the coming months to fill you with inspiration for your business.

FWP_GH_LRB-006

The start of a new year brings the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and make some new resolutions and plans for the exciting year ahead. While a lot of these resolutions are traditionally personal, why not make it an opportunity to set some business goals? It is a great time to take some time out of the everyday routine and really think about the direction that you want your business to go in. Take some time, a big piece of paper and dream big. I work out my best goals when I have time, paper and wine!

FWP_GH_LRB-025

Once you have got your dreams written down it is time to take some action, start to break those business goals down into small steps, manageable chunks, little goals that you can tackle one by one. It is by taking these small steps that you can make your business better, more effective and you can achieve your goals. It doesn’t need to be a big and daunting dream (although it might be!), just break it down into manageable chunks. Goal setting is so important in business, it can be the difference between achieving your dreams and coasting along. Once you’ve set the goals or resolutions take Alain de Botton’s advice and declare them in public to create momentum and energy.

FWP_GH_LRB-019

I love to create big, sparkly goals and I review them often. Don’t let your goal be one that you stick to for a couple of months and let fall off the radar, otherwise we’ll find ourselves welcoming in 2015 and wondering what we’ve achieved over the last 12 months.

So….what will 2014 bring your wedding business?

Welcome 2014

FWP_VERONICA & STUART-036

Firstly, if you have found your way here as a newly engaged person – welcome and congratulations. Our website stats soared over the holidays so there are lots of wedding planners out there!

I’ve had a little time off over the festivities which has been totally amazing, I’ve enjoyed partying, celebrating and relaxing with friends and family. A good time has been had by all.

It is time though to get back to the routine, the day job and to detox!

I’ve had some amazing weddings submitted over the last couple of weeks and I’m so excited to share them with you. If you’ve sent me an email over the break I’ll get back to you this week. The directory is taking shape and we are on schedule for our February launch. If you are a wedding professional who would like to be featured, do get in touch.

Hope that 2014 is an amazing one for each and every one of you, I’m very excited about the year ahead, it is going to be colourful, pretty and fabulous!
