PARTY TIME: Dig out your sparkliest frock, it's the book launch soiree!

Do you have anything planned for the 5th December? Scratch it. As you're invited - whether literally or metaphorically - to a certain little bash to celebrate the launch of The Secret Quintessentially Weddings Guide. Whilst the 'party' itself will be jumping (and doubtless those antique chandeliers shaking - cripes) here at 29 Portland Place, we'd like to encourage you, our lovely readers, to partake of the fun at home and host your own Planning Party. That's right. Put on your sparkling finery, gather your wedding crew about you, shake yourself a cocktail, and raise a toast to a book that will help take all of those wedmin stresses away - and that we hope you'll love as much as we did making our masterpiece.

NEED SOME INSPIRATION? We've put together some planning party ideas below...

1.Send some pretty invites. We love these jolly (and chic) versions from 2. This is your chance to fool around a little with decor, and try those ideas knocking around for the big day. Experiment! Balloons from ; similar from in the UK 3. Bake yourself one of Peggy Porschen's deliciously pretty Victoria sponges with this recipe at Mulberry's Brilliant Britain - if only to prove that you can bake (whatever the ribbing of your husband or his best man may say on the big day), you're just going to get the pros in for the wedding itself. 4. Get ideas cracking in Smythson's glamorous tome 5. And serve drinks in these elegant Rosy-Cheeked coupes from BHLDN

And what's more, if you sign up for updates on the book at you'll be in with the chance for you and a friend to come and rattle those crystals with us!

Love (a very excited) QBride XOXO

  1. oo how exciting, a planning party! Definitely the most fun way to get those ideas bubbling away whilst sipping fizz.

    Would probably recommend a designated-minute-taker though, in case some genius revelation is misted over in the morning fog!

    The launch sounds fabulous... good luck!
