Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Well here we are on a snowy winter’s morning and for the first time in ages it actually looks like there might be  a chance of a white Christmas which despite all the chaos the snow has been causing I still find a little exciting. I think it’s the kid in me that always looks out the window as soon as I wake up on Christmas day… 

So as the year comes to a close I just want to take this opportunity to thank all the lovely couples and fabulous suppliers I’ve met and worked with this year and say how much I’m looking forward to next year; I’ve got some beautiful weddings and some great projects lined up that I’m quite excited about. In the meantime Always Andri Wedding Design will be taking a break for Christmas from today and will be back January 5th 2011

Wishing everybody a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!!

As much of England is still covered in a blanket of white I thought I’d post some photos and links to some lovely weddings in the snow to inspire your day…

Christmas Wedding Inspiration: DIY

Today I've put together some links to DIY projects that are perfect for your wedding and could easily be adapted to have around at Christmas.

I do like using baby’s breath at weddings (as seen in my baby's breath floral inspiration), how lovely are these garlands with little hanging paper birds. DIY tutorial here via Once Wed

A simple DIY centrepiece idea that can be easily personalised with different motifs, wood and wool colour choices and flowers. I think they’d also make fab little table numbers. For the complete DIY tutorial here via the Wedding Chicks, photo by Julie Harmsen Photography

Something about dried fruit and dates in particular always make me think of Christmas, one of those things that always seem to pop up in the house at this time of year. A perfect little favour idea for a Christmas wedding that’s easy to do: DIY tutorial here via the fab new 100 Layer Cake website.

Lovely little DIY paper lanterns; hang them along the path to your venue or have them dotted around just outside the windows. If you’re worried about the tealights burning out too quickly or over safety you can always use LED tealights. DIY tutorial here via Design *Sponge

Christmas Wedding Inspiration: Table décor

A little inspiration for your Christmas wedding or maybe just a few fab ideas to dress your table on Christmas day.

This has been on a few US blogs over the last few days but as I love the floral designs of JL Designs,  I couldn’t resist posting it here.

I do love the combination of aqua & red and it makes a lovely change from your usual Christmas red combos. I especially like the lovely Christmas baubles used in this table arrangement.

How are you decorating your table on Christmas day? Last year I did an all silver table but this year I’m going a little more rustic with some lovely pine cones I collected in the Spring combined with red roses and gold charger plates-maybe this time I’ll remember to take a photo too…

A fab little Christmas idea…Tree of Memory

Sweet Paul is in the midst of his annual Holiday countdown which is always full of great little ideas for Christmas from recipes to craft projects. I love this idea of using family photos to hang on the tree and I think it would look great at a Christmas wedding.

With Christmas round the corner there’s some great inspiration around for your Winter Wedding so leading up to Christmas I’ll be posting lots more to inspire from real weddings in the snow to cute little DIY projects…

A fab little idea…Lampshades

I’m forever finding some fab little inspirational ideas as I’m researching for my clients’ weddings or the blog so I decided it’s about time I started sharing them on here with a new series of posts “A fab little idea…”

Seen on the recently discovered fabulous Luna & Chloe blog, this great idea to use lampshades-vintage or modern to boost up plates in a dessert bar. For lots more images and inspiration check out the post here but I warn you there are so many other wonderful ideas on the blog you may be lost for quite a while.
