‘Inspired by classic 1950s cocktail hats but with a modern twist, Helenae Hats are individually designed and made by hand in windswept Lancashire using traditional millinery techniques. We’ve been designing and creating occasions headwear for Brides, Bridal Parties, Weddings Guests, Ladies’ Days, Race Days and day wear since 2001. Our hats are one-offs, so there’s no chance of someone else wearing the same piece.

We use traditional millinery methods to produce the highest quality hats and fascinators in a range of fabrics to coordinate with your outfit. We consider your face shape and hairstyle when designing a hat for you to ensure you have something that’s both comfortable to wear and makes you feel amazing wearing it! Our ready to wear collection aims to provide something for everyone, but alterations can be made to ensure they’re perfect for you. We also offer an alteration service for hats, adding extra colours, feathers, a bit of sparkle or a full re-trim. We can make both big and small alterations to existing hats so you can re-use an old favourite. Or, have something new designed and made to suit your personal style.

Maybe you should check out Trello (who, what, where…yeah, I’d never heard of it too. I adore reading about the latest gizmos, software, business tools, apps and anything remotely wedding-ly, haha. Bring all these together and you have an app and a smart piece of desktop software which talk to each other (not literally, but you know where I’m coming from).

I came across this because I was looking for some business software which originally was going to cost me mega-bucks. I couldn’t quite believe Trello was free, but it is. It’s really intuitive and I love how it works with the app version on my phone. There is a super write-up further down and there are stonking video tutorials online if you’re not that computer savvy.

I still like to be a dinosaur and save hard copies in a box, I don’t think that will ever leave me. But, I’ve got to say, Trellos organisation has really impressed me. The FREE bit just nailed it, haha! Go show it some love and make your wedding planning and life a bit easier. Check out the lady who organised her wedding on the link too…super stuff!!!!
