7 Gorgeous Cakes for an Intimate Wedding

Weddings as we know them have changed. Hopefully not forever, but we do need to adapt to the new rules and regulations around weddings wherever we are. Mostly, weddings are now WAY smaller and more intimate and usually involve just a few close friends and family. But it’s not a wedding without CAKE.

Using ‘How to Hen’ to defeat bachelorette party planning stress

Planning a Hen (Bachelorette) Party is a stressful business. Sure, you can go to an agency to do it all for you, but that can get expensive and it also removes that element of love that comes with putting something awesome together for your best friend. I noticed that there wasn’t a platform that existed purely to help guide and inspire bridesmaids (and bridesmen) to plan a kick-ass Bachelorette weekend, without doing it for them.
