How are we in the final flourish of the year already? I don’t know about you but 2022 has absolutely flown. It’s been such a great year so far with restrictions lifted and all the weddings that have taken place. Woohoo!

If you are newly married, allow me to congratulate you. I hope you had the best of days. If you are in the throws of planning, here’s to an epic planning journey.

How has my month been? Pretty good, we’ve been busy with our house extension and ordering all the final bits and pieces. I am about to order our dining table, as well as outdoor lights and finishing touches. With any luck next month we’ll almost have our kitchen fitted.

I was poorly for a couple of weeks so was a bit knocked by that. However, we have had lots going on with family and friends. It’s been fab. I am now starting to think about Halloween, and then, of course, Christmas. It’s going to fly by.

Let’s dive into all the news from WWW’s wedding supplier members.

Rainbow Club

As the cost of living crisis continues to affect each one of our lives, those planning their special day will inevitably be feeling the pinch and looking for ways to make their budget go further.

Rainbow Club recognises the importance of feeling your best on your big day, whatever the financial restrictions may be. That’s why they have introduced the ‘Rainbow Club Essentials’ range. An edit of elegant footwear styles that epitomises Rainbow Club’s quality promise and signature DNA of timeless design, with a hint of glamour.

With prices starting from just £39, the Essentials collection allows brides-to-be to feel their very best without breaking the bank. The collection is comprised of a selection of customer favourites and archived styles that have been specially curated to ensure every bridal style is catered for.

The best part? Each style is infused with the brand’s comfort bliss technology to ensure each shoe is as wearable as it is stylish. A little blue gem can also be found on the sole of each shoe, acting as your something blue for the big day.


Lab-Grown Diamond Sacet

Sacet is a brand with a mission to create beautiful, affordable, and, most importantly, ethical jewellery. Choosing to reject the outdated and sometimes unethical methods that the jewellery industry presently practices and instead specialise in crafting jewellery that focuses on three things: people, planet, and profit, in that order.

Sacet exclusively sells diamonds that are free of conflict because they are aware of the negative effects that mining for diamonds has on the environment, people, and communities. These diamonds are grown in a laboratory using cutting-edge technology. Lab-grown diamonds are as gorgeous as real diamonds and are entirely ethical.
