Happy Tuesday! And your Tuesday’s going to 100% turn into a happy one (if it isn’t already) in the form of a wonderful competition we’re running with our friends from E.Y.I. Love, a fantastic Glasgow-based luxury wedding stationer and beloved Smashing The Glass Recommended Vendor, who work with stylish Jewish couples all over the world.
I’m so excited to tell you about a wonderful new competition STG is running with our friends (and beloved Recommended Vendor) The Wedding Club! We are offering five lucky members of our Brides Club invites to The Wedding Club’s exclusive press launch for the new Fall/Winter 2019 collection from legendary Israeli designer Berta (*SCREAM!*)
Taking place on Thursday, 10 January at 6:30 pm, in the fabulous 5* luxury ballroom of the breathtaking – and brand new – Kimpton Fitzroy in central London, we’ll be celebrating the launch of Berta’s mega-glam Barcelona Collection alongside press and VIPs.
Head designer Berta Balilti’s trademark avant-garde bridal styles are as majestic as ever, and it’s going to be such a thrill to see them in person – I’ll be attending myself, and I would love to meet you there!
Our five lucky winners will each receive an invite (and a plus-one for the guest of their choice!), PLUS an appointment at Berta’s trunk show at The Wedding Club the weekend of Friday 11th – Sunday 13th January – PLUS 10% off the Berta dresses for that weekend! And as always, The Wedding Club’s appointment fee will be waived for Brides Club members.
That’s a LOT of good stuff!
Back in April, we ran an Instagram competition to win an engagement shoot with one of the very best cutting-edge wedding photographers in the business, LUZ Weddings. Joelle and Jason were the lucky winners of our competition, and we are totally OBSESSED with the results of their fantastic shoot (which ended up taking place post-wedding due to scheduling, hence the bridal attire!).
Shooting around Stratford, London, photographer Shay from LUZ found the absolute coolest backdrops to make these photos really pop — bride Joelle says these images look like artwork rather than just your standard engagement pics, and we could not agree more.
LUZ are based in Tel Aviv and regularly work all across Israel as well as in the UK. If you’re looking for something a little different for your wedding photography, we could not recommend them more strongly. Their architectural inspiration and artsy aesthetic make for truly one-of-a kind photos, unlike any we’ve seen before.
Now for a few words from the lovely Joelle about what it was like making this fab shoot happen…
Here at Smashing The Glass, we are massive Etsy fans. Whatever your wedding style and budget, the global online marketplace for unique handmade and creative goods has got something for you. With so many unique items, it’s the perfect place to snag some special touches to help make your day totally you.
From invitations to decorations to favours and so much more, Etsy’s got you covered.
Today, we’re thrilled to be featuring a selection of some of our favourite Etsy products for Jewish (and Jew-ish) weddings that we personally adore. From flip flops to hand out to your guests to the loveliest floral lolly favours to beautiful order of service programs, we can’t wait to share our latest finds with you.
Oh yeah, and did we mention that our very own super stylish Smash Glass Pouches for under the chuppah are now available as a standalone purchase on Etsy, too?! That’s right, the days when your only options for wrapping your smash glass in a napkin or stodgy old velvet pouch are gone, thanks to this contemporary and oh-so-Instagrammable option!
We’re also delighted to announce that Etsy is running a competition on their Instagram channel, open to all UK STG readers, to win a £500 gift card! For full details, please visit @EtsyUK on Instagram (#EtsyWeddingStyle).
One winner will win a £500 gift card for Etsy.com. To enter, follow @EtsyUK’s Instagram account, like this post, and comment answering the question, “What’s your wedding style?” No purchase necessary. Open to UK residents 18+ only. 1 prize available. Ends June 5th. T&Cs apply.
How beautiful is the art on this order of service?! A custom-illustrated order of service is such a special memento of your day. Plus it is so helpful for any non Jewish guests you have at your weddings as you can include explanations of the Jewish wedding traditions they might not be familiar with.
We’ve been busy celebrating Smashing The Glass’s 4th Birthday and our rebrand and have been enjoying lots of delicious cake! With cake still on our minds we have a fabulous competition for you in association with our much loved STG Recommended Vendor, the super talented Isralove Design .
