Cactus Theme

Leather Cactus Pouch £30.06 – Amelie Mancini at Etsy


Whilst researching for last week’s Cactus Wedding Theme Ideas feature I discovered the amazing print designer Amelie Mancini and her Etsy shop.


Amelie’s patterns show her love for the botanical realm – cacti and ferns in particular. Yes, the colourful cactus is taking over the design world and you won’t be able to resist the prickly prints in this collection!


These cute cactus inspired ideas would make lovely destination wedding thank you gifts and the pretty pouches would make perfect make up bags for destination brides-to-be or bridesmaids.


Do browse around the Amelie Mancini Etsy shop for yourself as there’s plenty more gorgeous styles to take a peek at….

World Map Print £3.27 – Willow and Olive at Etsy


These darling destination prints would make ideal wedding gifts or anniversary presents for couples getting married abroad, or they could be used as simple additions to a destination wedding’s décor.


Place the ‘Pop, Fizz, Clink,’ ‘Cheers Darling’ or ‘Happy Hour’ print in a fancy frame to jazz up your wedding bar or drinks station, use palm tree prints with different countries on and in frames for your table names or go for a combination of prints around your destination wedding venue to add to your travel theme.


There’s so many more pretty prints to gawk at over on Willow and Olive’s shop on Etsy, so be sure to pay it a visit.

Buy Our Honeymoon Gift List Service


I can’t believe how quickly the last few years have flown by. This time two years ago I had not long returned from a three-week trip of a lifetime – my amazing honeymoon to Los Angeles and Hawaii!


My hubby and I got married abroad in Ibiza and so we wanted to clearly communicate to our wedding guests that we certainly would not be expecting wedding gifts as them generously taking the time, effort and of course the cost to come out to our destination wedding was in itself the greatest gift we could have ever hoped for.


Some relatives expressed an interest in getting us a gift regardless, so we added to our invitations that a contribution towards our upcoming honeymoon would be gratefully accepted if anyone did wish to get us a wedding present.


“You being there to share our special and memorable day is the best gift we could receive. Other gifts are by no means anticipated or expected. However, for those who have expressed a desire to mark the occasion, American Dollars towards our honeymoon would be gratefully appreciated.”
