Staycation honeymoon in a romantic yurt
Still wondering what to do on your first night? Or even for your staycation honeymoon? Maybe you're the 'get ahead' type and want it sorted for your green wedding in 2014. Well here's an idea...
Fabulous yurt company sshh..., those of the wonderful wedding yurts in East Sussex, have come up with this lovely concept of a honeymoon yurt. Their honeymoon yurts are carefully thought out with wedding night glamour in mind and provide the perfect get away following a wonderful day celebrating with family and friends.
Each yurt is furnished with a double bed fitted with 5* hotel quality linen, soft pillows, vintage chandelier, solid teak furniture, one off mirror, soft seating and handpicked luxury accessories.
A chilled bottle of bubbly and glasses will be waiting for the happy couple when they return to their yurt to toast their special day.
Honeymoon yurts can be set up indoors or outdoors, in a field, your very own back garden or alternatively the sshh... team can help you find the perfect venue.
A truly unique wedding night experience!

Ethical wedding rings that fit your ethical engagement ring
We're really excited to find out that brides with ethical values and unusual shaped engagement rings are no longer restricted to having to have a bespoke wedding ring made to match. CRED's new range of shaped wedding rings are made in Fairtrade gold or recycled platinum, and include shapes to fit a range of engagement ring settings, including their ever popular and quirky-shaped Princess Wrap.
The rings have diamond set options for extra sparkle, and also work as stand-alone wedding rings for those days when your engagement ring gets a day off.
These unique 'off-the-shelf' shaped wedding rings available in Fairtrade gold, will fit a wide range of engagement rings, not just those from the CRED, so are perfect for brides who have only recently discovered the availability of fairtrade.
Prices start from £290 for a ladies sweep wedding band.

Behind the Veil: Brides & their Dresses
Our East Coast American visitors might be excited to hear that the lovely eco-friendly wedding dress designer Lori del Genis at Conscious Elegance has just let us know that she is participating in an exhibition at the American Textile History Museum in Massachusetts, USA.
Titled Behind the Veil: Brides & their Dresses, it maps the history of bridal gowns through the years.
Besides having one of her ethical wedding gowns in the exhibition, she has also been invited to give a workshop about her work and the ins and outs of creating eco friendly wedding gowns.
Lori said "I might not have mentioned but the museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, which means that I get to say that we have a piece in the Smithsonian. OMG OMG OMG. And we'll be teaching museum-goers about what we do on their Super Saturday Family Day. Because eco-chic is totally IN these days and Green is Gorgeous, I'm so excited!"
When: Saturday, May 4, 2013, 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
What: Workshop on Eco-Friendly Wedding Attire
Who: Lori Del Genis, Director and Dressmaker at Conscious Elegance Handmade Eco Wedding Dresses, discusses creating sustainable and eco-friendly wedding attire.
Where: American Museum of Textile History in Lowell, Massachusetts.
