Come behind the scenes with us as we create our fabulous August cover at Wedding Ideas HQ…


Do you like vintage-style peach and coral colour schemes? Then our dreamy August issue of Wedding Ideas will be right up your street!

So where do you start with a summer cover? With a fabulous full, floral-inspired dress of course! “We chose a real summer princess wedding dress by Sweetheart at Sincerity for August,” says Deputy Editor Sophie. “We loved the feminine strapless, sweetheart neckline and the floral details at the waistline.”


“When it came to the hair, we decided to give our cover model, Lily, a classic half-up, half-down do,” says Editor Jade. “Just because you’re getting married in summer, when the weather will (hopefully) be hot, it doesn’t mean you have to have a full updo, especially if you’re not used to wearing your hair like that.”

“Because the dress is quite simple in its design, we could go a little more dramatic with the details,” adds Sophie. “I chose classic drop earrings from Laurel Lime, a delicate bracelet from Tantrums and Tiaras and a floral-inspired hair comb from Julieann Beads.”


“Sabine Darrall created our gorgeous bouquet of coral and lemon roses – we wanted a bright burst of colour for summer – with a vintage edge – and that’s just what we got!”
