Monday Mood Board: National Tweed Day…
Hello beautiful people! We hope you all have had an amazing weekend, do let us know what you got up to in the comments section below this post. We are reminiscing over what was an a-m-azing show at the weekend. On Sunday we were at the oh-so stylish Queens Hotel, Leeds. A glamorous art-deco hotel that really does have it all, space to cater for up to 500 (!) people, spacious ball room’s, gorgeous facilities; including a sky bar with panoramic views of the city of Leeds,and not to mention the accommodating staff, who are always on hand to help.
We were also joined by the most lovely suppliers from the area and hundreds of visitors, thank-you all for making it such a great fair!
This week, we have our last one of the Spring, and a very different one too. On Sunday we are heading out to the country-side, to the historic market town of Malton, a gorgeous location for an even more gorgeous venue; The Talbot Hotel, Malton. You can reserve your complementary tickets here for a beautiful day out with friends and family, alternatively you can just turn up on the day. We have Prosecco, canapes, entertainment and 30 of Yorkshires finest suppliers joining us. We would love you to join us THIS Sunday, between 12-3pm.
And, whilst we are talking of The Talbot Hotel, we have just the Mood Board for this weeks edition of ‘Monday Mood Board‘. Seen as it is, apparently National Tweed Day we thought this would make for a great feature, of course looking at all things tweed.
Today’s modern Bride-to-be has a fabulous array of ideas to choose from when it comes to her wedding bouquet, ranging from succulents to feathers, and lets not forget to mention the pretty darn gorgeous flowers! The flowers are chosen to suit the Bride and Groom’s outfits as well, and let’s not forget the bridesmaids, best man, flowers girls and not of course mothers’ of the Bride and Groom.
So, here are a few examples of buttonholes that we are loving, especially with the men in mind. Colourful, dainty and a whole load of pastel thrown in for good measure. The Spring and Summer months are the perfect time to choose much more vibrant colours, perhaps some pink, blue and pantone green would be the colour of your choice?
Do let us know what colours you would pair with a tweed wedding!
The perfect venue for a tweed wedding? You can’t go too far wrong with a Ti-pi or barn.
With a completely neutral colour scheme, and natural walls and floors, you don’t have to worry about clashing with the wallpaper or carpet! High ceilings, large space and pretty beams are just a few fabulous features you’ll find in a wedding barn. To create an even more country feel why not consider hanging fresh wildflower garlands, bunting and old keep sakes?
Barns and marquees alike are so versatile; you can dress them up and add a touch of golden glamour and sparkle, or keep things natural with a vintage, country or rustic theme. Of course, tweed is fitting with just about any style of wedding when worn with confidence and style, yet there is something about the relaxed feel of these venues that pair oh-so pretty.
Of course, a tweed suit is an essential, right?
Finding the perfect suit for your wedding day is a massive deal. There are lots of different ways to go about it, hitting the high street, booking a personal shopping experience, hiring your suit from a tailors or even having a bespoke outfit made for you. First things first, take a look at The Wedding Affair approved suppliers!
Tweed is known for its rough texture and beige or grey colour. Once considered an informal fabric, today however, people see tweed in a different light. In contrast to the rural and informal associations of yesteryear, tweed is often seen as chic, whimsical and authentically British, not to mention stylish!
Take a look at the look’s we are crushing over for the gentlemen this season.
