Wedding Stationery: Little Flamingo Stationery & Events
We’re big fans of Little Flamingo. You can probably tell from all the stationery we’ve featured of theirs in past issues of The Knot Magazine, as well as online.
Little Flamingo Stationery & Events is run by Shannon, who has a passion for paper and parties. Starting with just stationery, not too long ago Shannon branched out and now offer wedding planning services, where they’re happy to do all the little tasks that friends or family shouldn’t have to do, like hiring ceremony chairs or setting up your champagne bar.
One of our favourite designs by Little Flamingo Stationery is their All Seasons range, which features a tree cut-out and comes in a range of customisable colours. It’s the one we featured in our Winter 2011 issue of The Knot Magazine (and is pictured below in a blue colour palette).
Be sure to also check out their blog (www.littleflamingo.com.au/blog), which features beautiful ideas such as DIY projects and their real wedding work.

Here’s five more celebrity hairstyles to get you inspired for your wedding day ‘do.
I love this look for mid-length cuts. It’s feminine, chic and the side part keeps it romantic.
For another easy yet elegant take on the traditional ponytail, this style is tied slightly off-centre at the back with movement tonged through the lengths.
Soften any upstyle with a soft, wavy curtain fringe. Frame the face by strategically placing adding kinks in your curls at the top of your cheekbones and again at the jawline.
This hairstlye is perfect for a beach bride. It can get windy by the water so this side braid will keep your hair out of your face while the wavy lengths won’t be phased by a little wind.

It’s simple but by adding just a touch of fishtail braiding you upgrade your everyday side ponytail for your wedding day. This is a great style for those with straight hair that won’t hold a curl.

Good for: Vintage-y Autumn weddings
Tips for pulling it off: Inspired by a soft rose garden, this subdued trio is demure, yet stylish. Complement these natural hues with neutrals and wood tones in your decor for the best possible look.

It was a tough task her at The Knot HQ to choose which of these two gorgeous gowns would front our Winter 2011 issue. In the end, we couldn’t resist the frothy layers of this (left) Rhonda Hemmingway strapless gown.

Which gown is your favourite?
Marissa and Alex, proud parents of gift registry site and online store From The Owl (www.fromtheowl.com), are self confessed homewares enthusiasts, and their passion for all things unique and stylish is clear to see when clicking through their site.
We couldn’t choose our Top 5 (too many fabulous things!), so asked Marissa to let us in on her favourite finds available at From The Owl…
Acapulco chair, $495
I fell in love with this chair in Melbourne, not only does it look amazing it’s also the best nap chair ever!
Page 33 Cinematic lightbox, $249.95
We love page 33! They are extremely creative and love to stay away from the mainstream trends. The light box works great as a bed lamp, to leave cute messages for your partner and adds a very cool touch of quirk to your home.
Breville The Juice & Blend, $529.95
We’ve always loved buying freshly squeezed juice, now we can make them whenever we want in the comfort of our own home! Breville is a great brand and their products are extremely well made. This juicer will not disappoint!
Dibbern teapot, $104
We immediately fell in love with Dibbern’s unique range of dinnerware. We were amazed at just how large their colour range is, and the fact that they don’t discontinue any product which means you don’t have to worry about your favourite colours becoming extinct.
Blacklist art prints, $89.95
We stumbled across Blacklist while we were searching for new and exciting products, we were hooked at first sight. We have numerous prints in own home and will be making room for many more in the future.
