Earlier this year I got engaged (you can read all about my ring here) and I have just started looking around venues and started to think about the huge task ahead of planning a wedding. Naively, I thought it would be easy as I want a small, simple yet elegant wedding, but alas, there is still a lot to consider.
Until I have found the perfect venue or set a date, I am focusing on planning the smaller details which help make the perfect day. All those special little accessories which make the day perfect and unique to my fiancé and I. There is a whole world of weddings out there and I think it can all get a little overwhelming. Without wanting to sound cliche, I want to create a wedding around things we love, rather than what we believe we should love for a wedding. I think it has to be relevant to and our lives.
Anyone who knows me and reads my blog, even just once in a while, will know I love Jo Malone London, so imagine my excitement when I recently found out they are launching a Lace Bottle Collection. It’s perfect, it’s both bridal and something I love! It’s perfect for a bride to use in the months leading up to the wedding and honeymoon, or for the bride to give as a thank you gift to the bridesmaids. It makes a beautiful gift and the bottle is an elegant keepsake forever.
I’m loving this collection as it is both wedding themed, but a product I adore, the bottles are beautiful and something I would keep on my dressing table forever. If I was to buy these for my bridesmaids as a Thank you gift, I know that they would love it too, as it would be a lovely reminder for them, as well as a gift they would enjoy using.
The Jo Malone London Lace Bottle Collection is available in ten different scents and there are three different lace designs to choose from. The bottles are etched and limited edition and some of the scents have been selected as they are symbolic. For instance, Orange Blossom symbolised good fortune and happiness, and Peony (of Peony & Blush Suede) is considered good luck for a bride. Red Roses is of course, the classic flower of romance and Wild Bluebell could serve as something blue.
The Jo Malone London Lace Bottle Collection is launched 1st May 2015.
Congratulations on your engagement. I’ve just discovered your blog & I’m loving it.
I 100% recommend getting a wedding perfume. I had Tom Ford’s Jasmin Rouge and my (now) husband had Jo Malone’s Dark Amber and Ginger Lily (as above). We both bought ones that we’d never worn before and as painful as it was, we saved them to use for the first time on our wedding day. Now, every single time we wear them it transports us back to getting ready on the morning of our wedding (we eloped, so we got ready together). I wear his Jo Malone at least once a week now and it’s 10 months since we got married and it still makes me smile.
Ah! That’s such a wonderful story!!!! And how crazy you picked the same Jo Malone perfumes?! Xxx
