We have moved!

You might have noticed that I have been quiet around here, but I’ve been busy working behind the scenes to get a new website up for Elegant Impressions!

The blog is now hosted on the main website as well, so I really hope to see you around there. You can subscribe via email or to the RSS feeds as well, so you make sure you don’t lose any bit of inspiration.

Now I’m off to celebrate 🙂

In Love with … Antlers

Hello lovelies!

As promised yesterday, you’ll get to see some more antlers today. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite images …

Hello lovelies!

Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend of planning and relaxing. Today I’m back with another free printable, this time from one of my favourite daily reads – Wedding Chicks. Antlers have been huge in the wedding industry (more of that to come tomorrow 😉 ), so The Wedding Chicks have created a free antler wedding invitation, which you can just print yourself!

It is available in purple and in peach, and the text is wholly customisable. And while you’re at it, you can even pick up matching totes from their shop.

Hop on over to Wedding Chicks for the full tutorial.

Hello lovelies …

So, what have you planned for this weekend? I’m going to start cracking at some DIY projects I have lined up for the next Wedding Day shoot … the second issue is not even out yet , and we’re already geared up for the summer issue … It’s really great working with such an energetic and creative team! That’s enough about me … here are some pretties I found while blog surfing this week 🙂

A wedding in Portugal that is beyond chic

A super bright colourful kite-themed engagement

But most of all, you have to watch this! A proposal with lots of balloons

Fab Frocks Friday {#12}

Hello lovelies …

I had another post lined up for today, but when I saw this on One Fab Day I just couln’t resist. Those who read my blog regularly know that I have a soft spot (well, that’s an understatement!!) for Elie Saab.

He has just launched his 2013 couture collection (which is different from the one he designs for Pronovias). As usual I couldn’t decide which one is my favourite … one thing’s for certain, I would kill to have one of these gowns!

I’m loving the palette of easter egg colours …

… and some delightful short dresses!

And last but not least, this showstopper of a wedding dress. To be perfectly honest, it is the only gown from this collection that I wouldn’t wear, as it’s too girly for my tastes. But for those who love the princess/Barbie look, can it get more beautiful than this?
