I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day

 Can you believe it – another week of December gone! And another week closer to Christmas. We can’t contain our excitement – and we also can’t keep our exceptional advent offerings to ourselves. If you didn’t know (you should), we’re running an advent calendar with different real vendors offering amazing discounts for you. YES. YOU. So here’s ASTW’s Advent Calendar, Instalment 2!

10th December - The beautifully bejewelled millinery magicians at The Bobby Pin have offered us an amazing 15% off on top of free P&P using our And So To Wed exclusive code “15OFF”. You’ve got until Christmas Eve to take advantage of it – and we recommend you do because it applies to every single thing! Pictured are the gorgeous “Chloe” pins but we’re also especially huge fans of the “Martha” headband. Pink feathers should be a required part of every wedding, don’t you think?

11th December - What’s that you say? You still haven’t quite got your Christmas present shopping done? Well, you’ve left it a little late to be looking online, but we would never dissuade you from supporting small businesses (every time you order from one, the owner does a happy dance. Did you know that fact?). Quaintly Kate can solve your dilemma with an amazing 15% off all Love Story prints ordered before 31st January. They’re completely personalised, with your names and the date of your wedding. A perfect gift, or a perfect solution to a ‘treat yourself’ moment: it’s a special thing that needs to be celebrated.

12th DecemberMode For… are your go-to guys and gals for anything that needs to be done with your wedding, whether you’ve no idea where to start, some semblance of what you want, or you’ve got everything bar some tiny details set. Complete masters of wedding and events planning and styling, supplier selection and also with a very handy passion for Italian cuisine and culture, they’re also exceptionally generous Christmas elves who’ve offered twelve new clients one hour’s free planning service, when redeemed before 31st January! Just quote “ASTW Advent” and become part of the coveted 12 (even better than the Famous Five!).

13th December - Just a quick peek at Where The Ribbon Ends’ portfolio is enough to be convinced that she’s the woman to create the cake of your day’s dreams. Just in case perfecting every single cake design we could ever even imagine wasn’t enough - including geode crystals, first dance lyrics, a Victorian style silhouette, drip cakes, ruffled wonders and beaded icing in a naked cake for good measure – their flavours are sensational. And just in case you thought you’d spotted a limit, they also do incredible occasion cakes. In fact, with any cake order – wedding or event – booked before the end of March 2017, quote “ASTW” and you’ll get 12 matching cupcakes free!

14th December - We’d just like to preface this incredible offer by highlighting the fact that this offer is available until NEXT DECEMBER. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen – December 2017. The wonderful vocalist Vicky Fee is offering 50% off all of her wedding entertainment packages until this time next year, quoting “And so to wed offer”. Lend her beautiful vocals to your ceremony or reception at any time of the day, as her repertoire is extensive and comes with the possible add-on of a DJ service!

Offer valid for Solo Vocalist packages only - excluding Brand New Vinyls Band

15th December - The wonderful craftswomen at Sash + Veil have offered us 20% off all veil orders placed until New Year’s Eve. Made with the best quality vintage and contemporary materials in the Aladdin’s cave that is the studio, each piece is lovingly handcrafted. A company who truly want what you want, they especially love weaving personal elements into their designs, to create an everlasting memory. To redeem this amazing offer, place your order via email, quoting “ASTW20”.

16th DecemberGlorious Tiaras definitely live up to their glorious reputation, with a breathtaking selection of hair vines, combs, tiaras, and pins to perfect your wedding look. They’ve got something for everything so can get you out of every hairy situation (hehe) – we especially love the hair vines which are so versatile! We can totally see why they’re the Wedding Industry Award's North West Wedding Accessory Designer 2017. Because she’s a shining star, Heidi from Glorious Tiaras has taken time out of award-winning and dream-making to give us an amazing offer: for every order over £50 placed before New Year’s eve, using the code “XMASPIN” will get you a gorgeous Swarovski crystal Papillon pin in your basket free of charge – usually they’re £30!

Aaaaand deep breath. We’re so grateful to all of the wonderful vendors who have made this advent possible and offered so far, and can’t wait to bring you the final week next week (eeep!). On top of that – we know we keep teasing it but it is so worth it we promise – our Win Your Wedding competition goes live on Monday! Keep your eyes peeled and tell everyone you know: it’s going to be something very, very special.
