Hi.

Welcome to ASTW - the place for bespoke brides looking for unique handmade items, ideas & inspiration

Mother’s Day Giveaway

Mother’s Day Giveaway

If, like us, you’re having a minor existential crisis about the fact that we are already steaming through the month of March, we have the perfect antidote. We’re thrilled to share our Mother’s Day Giveaway with you, an incredible prize hamper for all those mummas out there, to salute and thank them for everything they have done and continue to do for us. Whether you want to buy it for a Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, a mumma bride to be, or a pregnant maid of honour or bridesmaid, we want to spread the love to a wonderful mum out there who deserves to know how special she is, and how she makes the world a better place.

Mother’s Day this year is Sunday 26th March, and to mark the occasion we’re offering you the chance to win a whole gift hamper! We know, we’re good like that. As all good things nowadays are, it’s a facebook competition. You know the drill by now we’re sure: you need to like and share the original post on the And So To Wed Facebook page before the competition closes at 7pm on Sunday 19th March. We’ll then announce the winner and ask for your address, where we’ll then send the hamper bursting with goodies! We’re giving you advance warning now so that, if you so wish, you can take that week off from work, in order to sit in the front window and wait to see the postie coming down the path carrying it in all of it’s gorgeousness.

What’s in it? You ask. What can I get my wonderful mother? EVERYTHING is the short answer. Here’s what you could win:

Flower Heart Light

We have been crushing on The White Bulb for such a long time, so we’re honoured to say we’ve got one of their lights to give away! This heart shaped light fitting, handfinished with silk flowers and leavers, is the perfect decoration for any surface, anywhere, any time - somewhere it can be on proud display.

Handlettering Print

The über talented Cassie of Ivy & Inks has given us a stunning print in her signature brush lettering style, with the perfect Mother’s Day sentiment: “You’re a whole lot of lovely”. You ARE a whole lot of lovely, that is very true. It’s like she knows ya!

Makeover

We’re so excited to be offering a full makeover from Amy George MUA, make up extraordinaire and lovely lady to boot! Subject to location and availability, Amy is offering one full free make over, so she can prep you for any occasion – or make you feel fabulous, just because.

Mother & Daughter Bracelet Set

This stunning bracelet set is thanks to PS With Love: a beautiful two piece set made from 24k gold vermeil and pink freshwater pearls. The mother’s bracelet has a heart cut out shape on the pendant, and the daughter’s bracelet features a heart pendant that’s the perfect size to fill the hole! Ohhhh the tears are streaming down our face – a gorgeous keepsake forever and ever.

Lace Gloves

Bespoke Vintage Castle is bringing the luxury to the ladies with these gorgeous, handmade lace gloves – the perfect addition to an oh so classic outfit. Make your mum feel like a movie star!

Personalised Handkerchief

We also have a beautiful cotton handkerchief from Extra Special Touch available. It’s hand finished with Nottingham lace and a gorgeous bespoke embroidered verse, personalised with your name in your choice of thread too. We are spoiling you, we know!

Embellished Bag

Shiny and beautiful like mamas themselves, Thomasina Brides are giving this wonderful embellished bag to one special lady. It’s a perfect ‘treat me’ bag, to save for a special occasion where you’re made to feel like a million pounds!

Obviously you can’t put a price on the happiness a mother brings to the world, and we wouldn’t even know where to start. However, if we did, we’d suggest that over £150 worth of sumptuous bespoke goodies, handmade by local small businesses who pour their heart and soul into every creation, is a good place to start. Wouldn’t you?

So what are you waiting for? Enter on our Facebook page - Good Luck!
