Wedding season is here, but if you’re not quite ready to give Meghan and Harry a run for their money – and let’s face it, who can afford to cater for 600 people? – you might want to consider a few shortcuts.We caught up with Fern Godfrey, Editor of the UK’s biggest Wedding blog Rock My Wedding, to discover her tips for planning your dream day on a budget… 


What do you love most about being the Editor of Rock My Wedding? Rock My Wedding was founded by Charlotte O’Shea in 2009, when she was planning her own wedding, it’s grown hugely since then and we’re now a team of 10. I’ve been Editor at Rock My Wedding since 2015 and I absolutely love my job. 

We get to share people’s love stories every single day, work with beautiful flowers and dresses, and champion incredible wedding suppliers with our directory, The List. The best bit is seeing the wedding photographs of brides who have read RMW religiously while planning their own weddings –- it’s such a great feeling. 

What do you find are the most popular wedding themes?

We feature a lot of rustic luxe weddings -– industrial and agricultural buildings with lots of exposed brick and lofty beams, filled with flowers and candles. This theme works beautifully for weddings across Europe as we have so many incredible historic and working buildings to use. The weather in the UK doesn’t always allow for the amazing outdoor celebrations we feature from France, Italy and Spain, but all of the weddings we blog are amazing in their own unique way. 

How can one plan a beautiful wedding on a budget? 

If you want to save money while planning your big day, then the key thing is decide on what is important to you as a couple. If you chose the areas you’re going to spend on, then you can try to save on the others. 

Do you really need wedding favours? Can you serve canapés as a starter and wedding cake as your dessert? Have you considered a Spotify play list rather than a band? Do you really need a pair of designer shoes? If flowers aren’t important to you, then use local foliage and seasonal blooms. The one thing we’d always recommend spending on is professional photographs and a film – these things will allow you to remember your big day forever and so they are the most important part. 

Can you share any useful DIY tips?

We’ve created a couple of floral DIY’s for Rock My Wedding readers. The first is a chair back arrangement to take your seating to the next level. The other is for a classic flower crown – these are very popular with boho bridesmaids, especially at cool, rustic weddings out in the countryside, but you can use any kind of flower to achieve the look and feel you want. There are plenty of examples on the Rock My Wedding Instagram feed.

As an expert, what would you pack for a destination wedding?

As a wedding guest? A floral maxi dress, a wide brimmed hat and some sunglasses. As the bride? A soft and flowing gown, some pretty sandals and lots of Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder.

Shop Fern’s edit for the perfect pieces to make your day special, whatever your budget and wherever you’re heading to tie the knot…

I think that crop long sleeve shirts are going to be a thing this summer.  The best part of it, if that if you don't have the money to buy one, you can simply borrow your boyfriend's, brother's o dad's shirt, cut it, and then you're good to go.  that's budget-friendly trend.  photo credit: @whowhatwear on twitter  #fashion #outfit #summer #trend

This week marks the 100 year anniversary of women first winning the vote in the UK. And while much has changed since 6 February 1918, the fact that there’s a plethora of feminist fashion and literature available and multiple women’s marches staged in recent years suggests the spirit of the suffragists is still very much alive. These women, unlike the radical suffragettes who were more militant and resorted to violence (Emily Davison died after walking out in front of King George V’s horse at the 1913 Epson Derby), campaigned to win the vote peacefully. The combination of tactics worked and these days women are campaigning for gender equality and protesting against issues like period poverty and sexual harassment in powerful ways.  


Besides donating money and joining marches, there are other ways to share your beliefs and solidarity with fellow women. We’d suggest reading up about the history of the suffragists and suffragettes, women's rights and feminism; and fashion wise, slogan t-shirts are probably the easiest way to share your thoughts as they’ll effortlessly go with what’s already in your wardrobe. There’s bound to be one that reflect your thoughts and you can discover the protest garment’s 20th century timeline and impact at an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum which opens today. Dior’s ‘We should all be feminists’ t-shirt, inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s essay and Ted talk, is arguably the most famous and the fashion girl choice, and the audio featured on Beyonce’s ‘Flawless’ track. The word and terms ‘feminist’ (which so loaded you may have to justify yourself to onlookers when wearing it), ‘girl power’ and ‘grl pwr’ feature on a range of stylish pieces and accessories too. We’d also recommend making the Spice Girls your current soundtrack, given their still very relevant #girlpower message, and you can add empowering quotes to your home decor.

Don’t get your hopes up when it comes to the latest Spice Girls reunion. Yes they’re back together, and we have the instagram snaps to prove it, but they’re not going to actually sing or release any new material. Sad Face. According to the Guardian and The Sun, Baby (Emma Bunton), Sporty (Mel C), Scary (Mel B), Posh (Victoria Beckham) and Ginger (Geri Horner) have accepted £10m each for a deal that might include ‘television in China, a new talent show, a second greatest hits compilation and a variety of endorsement deals.’ Just when we needed new #girlpower anthems more than ever, and the original kind from the original ‘90s trailblazers, they’re not going to give us any. Regardless of whether the announcement is more money fuelled than nostalgia fuelled, we’re excited to see them back and don’t they look well? Oh well, it’s back to rinsing their Spice and Spiceworld albums and another Spiceworld film marathon is in order. 


 While we wait to see how the Spice Girls circa 2018 plays out, we can keep paying homage to the girl group sartorially. The ‘90s fashion trend shows no signs of dying which means the styles they wore in their heyday 20 years ago are still hot. If you’re a sucker for a black slip dress, you’re subconsciously channelling Posh, if it’s white or pink Baby, and Mel B helped make Doc Martens so streetwise. In fact she was wearing cameo cargo pants before Destiny’s Child did in the Survivor video. And with the Brits later this month, who can forget Geri’s Union Jack dress? But arguably Sporty’s look is currently the most influential with everyone from Kim Kardashian to streetstyle star rocking sportswear and statement sneakers.

Okay, so the argument goes that Valentine's Day is just a commercial rouse to encourage us to spend money on overpriced flowers and underwear. But hey it's another occasion that involves chocolate and a lot of pink. Millennial pink, as I've discussed in previous looks, is still the colour of the moment. I love this incorporation of millennial pink and glitter (two of my favourite things) in nail art. This is really feminine but the darker glitter and almond file give it a little edge. Another Valentine treat we don't need to spend more money on, but probably will - I for one am not complaining. Image: Elle

For the past few seasons, we have noticed the charcoal appearing just about everywhere. From our healthcare routines to our dental care, facecare even as a detergent for our dishes. There have been numerous studies and articles anyway about the unequivocal benefits of using charcoal in our everyday routines. So where can you use charcoal and which are the individual benefits? Don't worry we have you covered. Just read on below for more tips: 


PERFECT SMILE 

Charcoal has amazing whitening properties for teeth. It can really accelerate the process by removing persistent stains and discolourations. But be careful you cannot use it more than a few times per week. Also, if you choose to use it don't be taken aback the first time when you apply it as it will make your entire mouth black. Just rinse thoroughly after brushing and it should leave you with a white sparkling smile. 

DISHWEAR

Just like with dental care, charcoal has amazing benefits for cleaning dishes. Just add a small spoonful of raw charcoal in your regular detergent and you'll notice instant amazing results. Works great not only for removing stains but also for making stainless steel look extra shiny! Double whammy, more for your money! 

FOOD & DRINKS 

You may have noticed this trend emerging last year of adding a bit of charcoal to our nutrition. And for good reason. Activated charcoal prevents cellular damage to kidneys and liver. It also helps the body flush out the toxins and chemicals that cause the damage. Expect charcoal lemonades, charcoal lattes even pitch black charcoal pancakes! 

FACIAL ROUTINE 

Probably the most popular lifestyle use of activated charcoal is for our facial routines. Opt for a charcoal-infused face cleanser or scrub to remove impurities from your face. Add a charcoal mask which works wonders on black spots and age discolourations. Just make sure to moisturize thoroughly after application for the best results! 

Are you ready to add a bit of charcoal in your everyday routine? Check out our expert edit below!

Christy Teigen's Best Kept secret is coconut oil and she's not the only coconut connoisseur. You may have tried to employ coconut oil in the kitchen or even enjoy it as part of your bath shower routine. However, the healing and nourishing benefits of coconut have made it an all-around beauty favourite. Try it to moisturise your skin and remove your make up or add a few spoonfuls of coconut butter in a smoothie or dessert. There are many ways in which you can incorporate coconut into your daily routine. Now you can discover how you can make the most out of nature's purest ingredient to improve your wellness and nutrition. 

BODY OIL 

Apply the solid creamy textured coconut oil and get the perfect light moisturiser. Just slather a small portion on your body after leaving the shower and it will be enough to give you soft skin that glows. Add a few drops of peppermint or almond oil and get the royal spa treatment. 

HAIR MASK 

While in the shower apply a coconut oil mask and leave it for 15 minutes or longer if you have dry and damaged hair. For a more natural approach try melting your coconut oil by placing the jar under hot water. The mask will instantly moisture hour tired locks and give them extra shine and endurance. 

UNDER THE EYES 

Our skin under the eyes is quite thin and delicate which is why it's the first facial part that shows signs of ageing. It's also very prone to fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. If you want to avoid spending a hefty sum of money on a very costly cream then invest in coconut oil. After all, Emily Weiss founder of Glossier admitted that more expensive doesn't necessarily mean more effective. Attention: Coconut oil is comedogenic so be aware if you're suffering from acne. 

HEALTHY FAT 

Although coconut oil is perfect for those late night stir fries when it comes to nutrition go for coconut butter. It's thicker in texture which makes it perfect to spread on toast. You can also use it when making healthy smoothies or as topping for berries. Both coconut oil and coconut butter have both nutritional and metabolism-boosting properties that are amazing for your immune system and for your skin. They are though high in nutritional value, so don't overdo it.

Purchasing an engagement ring is a very personal experience. It can take up to several months of research, observations and how intently you know your partner to come up with the perfect ring option. In order to avoid research burnout, focus on researching the designs you think your partner might like. Take a snoop in their jewellery box if you have any doubts or discreetly ask their closest friends. 


With all the engagements for the past season, we've been noticing a wide array of ring silhouettes and sizes. Most of those precious stones have been showcased on multiple celebrities and influencers and range from petite to quite large proportions. But don't worry so much about size. There is a correlation between dress size, height and ring size. You can get it right by simply ensuring that the ring goes over the knuckle. 

When opting for a ring check that it was certified by the GIA, in other words, the world's most popular grading laboratory. To make things easier just check that there is a laser inscription of its own unique certification number. 

Get more for your money by opting for the most amount of sparkle that is affordable. If you go for a smaller diamond just make sure that it's perfectly calibrated for cut, colour, clarity and size. 

Get creative. This season specifically, you can also add the just recently growing trend of the sideways-oval trend. Allow us to elaborate. In an attempt to make the ring more unique and less traditional there is a tendency for classic solitaire or pavé setting employes to infuse a cool edge to the ring and make it feel less bridal. 

Ready to pop the question? Browse through our gallery for more inspiration and shop the perfect ring from our expert edit below.

When you first get a foldable bag you’ll wonder how you ever functioned without it. They’ve become all the more essential now that it costs 5p per plastic bag in the shops so you’ll save that money and the environment in a single swoop. Brand and designers have cottoned on this unique fashion-meets-function opportunity to dole out bags to suit minimalists, maximalists and every sartorial personality in between. And you’d be surprised by how small some shrink, how big others expand and how it doesn’t really matter whether you fold, scrunch or roll them. Drop one in your bag and volia! You’re instantly more organised and have more space to shop or carry everything you need for the day.  


Longchamp are probably the best known brand to make them thanks to Alexa Chung carrying their Le Pliage tote and collaborating with the French luxury leather goods brand on her own designs. You can follow her lead by creating a monochrome look with the bag as the statement piece or you can clash to your heart’s content. To be honest, there’s no right or wrong way to style a foldable bag - just pick your favourite shape/shade/pattern and use it at much as possible. And as they are so reasonably priced, why buy only one?

Shop our edit of the best foldable bags available now below.
