andrea: four *plus* things for my poppy wedding

readers, please say a friendly hello to andrea of!
Great idea! Forgive me, I really couldn’t stick to 4.
[no worries!]

Floral Themed Invitation SAMPLES

1) Poppies! I’m currently obsessed with Poppies – possibly due to the amazing tea set I inherited from my Grandmother. So I’d definitely go with poppy themed invitations, these were my favourite of many.

* Tip - Make sure you get matching thank you cards at the same time so you can start sending them out as soon as the early bird gifts arrive.

I would complement the poppy theme with a few more “poppy” items in addition to the centerpieces and flowers.

Guest book:
Custom Made Guestbook / Album- Crimson Poppy print
{ custom-made guest book/album by enjibeck }

OR I love the idea of creating a poster sized invitation to have your guests sign.

Place cards:
Red Poppies Place Cards-Set of 20

[see my feature on michellebrusegaard here]
A matching tie for the groom:
6 silk groomsmen neckties, wedding bulk discount
{ poppy necktie by toybreaker }

2) One signature item of clothing to really make the bridal ensemble pop and accent your theme.

[here i substituted the custom listing, as the one andrea picked was reserved for a bride]
Fascinator 2:

[sadly this listing has been removed, but check out the other fascinators at chameleondesignsaus]

Pearly Girly
{ Pearly Girly Necklace by VirginiaGeiger Jewels }
French Vanilla Bridal Wrap
{ French Vanilla Bridal Wrap by bonzie }

3) And now for some fun! I did homemade cupcakes for my own wedding instead of cake. Perhaps for a DIY favour, you could combine the recipe for your wedding cupcakes on a snazzy recipe card, with a small canning jar full of the pre-mixed dry ingredients. i.e. Just add milk, eggs etc for your own “eat at home” cupcakes!

4) Lastly, we can't forget about bridesmaid gifts. I like the fact that you can get wristlets by babycakesboutique in several different Amy Butler fabrics so your bridesmaids never have to show up to a party with the same purse after the wedding.

Bridesmaid Gift:
Handmade Kashmir Eastern Inspired Bangle Wristlet Clutch Zipper Pouch
{ Handmade Kashmir Eastern Inspired Bangle Wristlet by babycakesboutique }

thank you *so* much for your extensive picks, andrea! all best to you and your new blog,


  1. Really a nice post to read. It has quite good content regarding its topic. Don't forget to visit to see a very good collection of Christian Wedding Invitations and Scroll Wedding Invitations.

  2. That French wrap is to die for. I just love that. I almost bought a wrap like that when I was searching for my wedding gown. Perfect for outdoor weddings.

  3. I had those invitations in my imaginary "four things" post I never submitted. I guess now my poppy theme would just be redundant... :)
