The most eye-catching wedding decor revealed
A new study, conducted by the wedding financial experts at money.co.uk, involved surveying 1,000 future newlyweds and asking them to estimate how much they will spend on 70 wedding items. Images of these 70 items were then used in an eye-tracking study to reveal the specific elements that people spend the most time gazing at. Fairylights came out on top, with guests staring at them for 5.53 seconds which is impressive considering they are the decorations that those planning a wedding expect to pay the least for (£106.25).

Fabulous Functions in Wiltshire unveil sustainable shoot
Owner of wedding venue styling business Fabulous Functions based in Wiltshire, Sandra Trusty, and a talented team of local suppliers including Maple & Fleur Photography recently collaborated on a sustainable-themed shoot in the orangery at De Vere Tortworth Court that featured some wonderful handmade creations. Sandra tells us, "The sustainability angle is very present in the décor made for this shoot. We worked to a botanical theme and used driftwood and moss as the base then added silk flowers in lush green and neutral tones with hints of pale pink and cream. Everything can be reused again after a wedding and not an ounce of floral foam was anywhere to be seen!"
