I don’t really know if I’d call this a trend as such, and table snakes are just my name for this wedding table arrangement, but I’m starting to see it crop up more and more in wedding world…
It’s actually a really practical alternative to straight long tables as you can fit more people in a smaller space by arranging the tables in winding curves.
And I also like the cosiness of it. Rather than one long table where you can only see the people across and next to you, this arrangement allows you to see much more of the wedding party. For big events with a lot of people to sit it’s a bloomin’ good choice!

The last photo, especially, shows how winding tables can be a great way to make the most out of a tricky reception venue!

This will be the third time I’ve featured Classic Wedding Invitations. That’s because they keep coming up with fantastic wedding stationery designs!
I’ve recently bought a laser cutter myself (so exciting!) so I love seeing what it can do through the awesome work of others.
There are five new designs that are bang on trend with the inclusion of an Art Deco & Great Gatsby suite. I think the adorable heart may just be my favourite though…
To see more of their gorgeous stationery range you can visit my other posts here and here or just skip along to the Classic Wedding Invitations website.

Starting today and ending on Monday, Craftsy are holding a big Fall (or Autumn for us UK kids) sale, with all classes up to 50% off! In case you don’t even know what Craftsy is, it’s an awesome online resource of crafty courses to help you acquire new skills in making stuff with your hands. I love it!
I’m actually thinking about getting one of the courses myself as there’s a strong possibility I may end up making my own wedding cake at the moment! Whether that’s wise I’m not entirely sure, but if I do decide to go for it I’ll be opting for a super simple cake: to minimise stress and maximise the likelihood of it actually looking OK!
What I would like however, is to add interest with some sort of embellishment on the cake, such as a sugar flower or some modern stripes, and Craftsy have plenty of courses that could help me (and you!) do just that…
For all the courses Craftsy have to offer just click the link. But if you’re thinking of enrolling on one do it before Monday! You have lifetime access once you buy, so there’s no harm buying now even if you’re not quite ready to start just yet.

So not only have (probably) the most famous Hollywood couple finally married after nearly a decade of dating, but Angelina incorporated their children in the proceedings in the most wonderful way… by letting them scribble all over her wedding dress! Well, sort of. Their 6 children’s drawings were actually embroidered into the gorgeous gown.
The result is a lovely way to show that their marriage isn’t just about the two of them; it’s about their family…
And I’m off to buy my copy of Hello! magazine now, because I want to see more :D

Sadly, I’m not having any adorable flower girls at my wedding, but if I did I would love to dress them in these absolutely gorgeous gowns from Doloris Petunia…
