DIY Pearl and Crystal Bouquet

16th February 2012

Gah! The cuteness astounds. This brilliant DIY bouquet  and the buttonhole for your groom are going to be a little bit fiddly at first, I'll be honest, but once you get the hang of the basics, you will fly through it. The completed project will reveal a unique bouquet, which you can keep in perfect nick forever!  Pearls and crystals are always a little bit Vintage Glam, which obviously we love here at The Bride's Tree. Its romantic feel will have you feeling like a beautiful bride the moment you pick it up on the day of your Sunshine Coast…

The Perfect Eyebrow for The Perfect Bride

15th February 2012

  If you have a Sunshine Coast wedding coming up, and you have not had your eyebrows professionally shaped, you better get your skates on, Missy! If there is one thing I'm an advocate of, it's eyebrow shaping. As a young lass, I suffered from mono. Not the illness, but mono of the brow kind. Think Bert of Bert and Ernie, think Mal Meninga, think Frida Kahlo.  Years of waxing and plucking ensued, and while it was certainly a more preferable alternative to the old forehead caterpillars growing wild and free, I would often suffer from a reaction to the…

Children at Weddings

14th February 2012

Having children at your wedding, whether they are your own, relatives’ children or the offspring of your close friends, is very special indeed. Most children love to dress up and be part of a special occasion. Well really, to them, it’s a party, and who doesn’t love a party! Of course usually a wedding is an occasion for parents to kick up their heels as well, so wouldn’t it be nice if you could have the best of both worlds at your Sunshine Coast wedding. Children’s laughter and games and all dressed up in their gorgeous little flowergirl dresses and…

Happy Valentine’s Day!

13th February 2012

Happy Valentine's Day one and all! We are really excited, because obviously there will be many more engaged couples planning their Sunshine Coast weddings after today… It's inevitable on the most romantic day of the year. We know many people don't see the special in this holiday of love, (for example, my Manfriend, who calls it a holiday about Paganism and fornicating! As though that's a bad thing…), but we lust it with all our hearts. What's not fun about telling the one you like/love/heart that they're special to you and giving and receiving cheesy gifts?  To celebrate our fave…

Orange Wedding Inspiration

12th February 2012

From bridesmaid dresses to wedding stationery, from flowers to your wedding cake, you can have your fave shade of orange in your wedding theme from top to tail. For some reason, a lot of people are under the impression orange won't suit them. I beg to differ. I believe if this is your stance on the colour orange, you simply haven't found the right shade for you, yet. It's actually a very versatile colour that suits all hair colours, eye colours (especially blue!), and most skin types.  This drop-dead gorgeous orange wedding  inspiration board will no doubt have you brimming…

Must Love Dogs

9th February 2012

This is the true story of Kelly and Matt.  Kelly and Matt worked in the same building. They would see each other around the office from time to time, and Kelly always thought Matt seemed like a nice guy. Very gradually, they would bump into each other more frequently. Their conversations started becoming of a more personal nature, and Kelly told Matt where she liked to walk her dog on a Saturday afternoon. This was his in. Matt took the opportunity, and said he also walked his dog at the same beach… (his non-existent dog, that is)… And maybe they…
