Fancy fizz…

We’ve all been there – deciding on what bubbles to serve to your wedding guests. Champagne is pricey, and you need to spend a lot of money to get a decent – and non-headache, furry-teeth inducing – bottle.

Here at Mrs Wilson’s Wedding, we offer you a lovely – and very bubbly – solution. Cava. Yes, that’s right, cava. Barcelona’s finest cava, actually.

Codorniu Brut NV and Rosado Brut NV is *very* budget friendly at £9.99 a bottle, even less if you can find it at supermarkets on offer, and is incredibly tasty – think honey, apples…  *drools on laptop*

Most guests wouldn’t even know the difference, and served ice-cold, it’s the perfect way to toast your wedded bliss on a beautiful summer’s day.

Be kind to your wedding budget – and even kinder to your guests – and consider Barcelona’s finest export.

Now, I’m off to go pour myself a glass… yes I know it’s only 11am…

Showbiz Wedding Round-Up…

Weddings, weddings, weddings. These celebs sure know how to keep us occupied (and looking intently at the Sidebar of Shame on the MailOnline…)

So, Andy Murray is getting hitched this weekend, and “couldn’t care less” about colour schemes. Good for him – and good for bloody Kim. I wish I had a husband who didn’t care about colour schemes. My Cath Kidston-esque wedding was RUINED by his opinions. Damn them. Damn them all to hell.

Anyhoo, I digress. Kim and Andy get hitched on Saturday in Dunblane, Scotland. And I’m pretty sure that Judy Murray will be wearing an enormous hat (and shouting encouraging things to her son from her seat).

Geri Haliwell – her of Ginger Spice fame and now more famous for going out with famous people – is reportedly getting hitched at Kensington Palace in May. Yes, I’m bewildered too, as surely Kate & Wills live at Kensington Palace? Anyway, Le Ginge Spice is marrying Formula 1 Red Bull boss Daniel Horner (cor, I bet he’s got a LOT of money), and I genuinely hope that Union Jack dress has been dredged up from somewhere for her hen do.

And, pretty Davina McCall has renewed her vows to her husband of 14 years in Viva Las Vegas. The presenter – and Comic Relief challenge stalwart – revealed the news on Twitter, saying that their three children had wrote their wedding vows for them. Awww.

That’s it for now my darlings. See you soon!

Big, fat, happy wedding?

The bigger, the better. Applicable to a slice of cake or a gin & tonic, but to a wedding? Surely not.

Well, a new university project in America has found the more people that come to a wedding, the happier the couple will be. The study found that couples who had 150 or more guests at their weddings were 47% more likely to have a “higher-quality marriage”, while those who had 50 or less guests had a 31% chance of marital bliss.

I’m not sure shelling out for 150 guests to come to your wedding is the best way to ensure a happy marriage. Love, communication, a lot of cake, and similar interests might be the best way to start; not inviting £75 per head wedding guests who you haven’t seen in years.

Big or budget – every wedding is different. And I’m sure you don’t want your guestlist dictated to you by researchers in the US of A. So scrap those distant relatives who haven’t seen you since you were 15 with a bad perm, and stick to your nearest and dearest.

Happy wedding!

It’s Oscar dress time! *swoon*

“It’s the most, wonderful time of the year…”

Oscars, baby! Here are my bridal picks from this years’ red carpet.

OPRAH. That is all.

Yes, I know there are a few famous faces missing from this compilation. JLo had too much boob going on, Julianne Moore’s couture Chanel was a shapeless mess (and she usually nails it), and Gaga would have OWNED that red carpet if it wasn’t for those bloody horrible gloves. Sigh.

So, there you go. Another year, another droolfest. And one last thing… OPRAH. Good God, I love that woman.

Apologies…

Hello my loves,

Huge apologies for the hiatus, ladies and gents.

Truth is, I’ve had an insanely manic few months. My little bubby Theo started walking shortly after my last blog post, and since then, it’s been INSANE.

So, here I am, blogging away just for you. Oscar dress post coming up very shortly – my FAVOURITE time of the year. And oh, there are some beauties.
