A story of a couple who go off on holiday and THE most exciting stuff happens... and they miss it all.


WE WERE ON HOLIDAY AND WE WERE FEATURED ON MARIE CLAIRE... and the tragedy is, that we didn't even know. Darn having no internet when you go away and this amazingness that happens the day after you leave.

But still massive smiles that we were lucky enough to be included and that they think we are one of the 15 most beautiful wedding invitations. I have to say, I agree.

This one above is our Secret Garden design but if you'd like to see all of our other designs then take a look here or if you have any questions then email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk

Thanks and special message to the press, thank you and please please please keep 'em coming!

Wedding Tea Towels... not just for weddings y'know.


What the heck! It's a wedding tea towel... but it's not for a wedding! It's for a 70th birthday celebration. And we don't mind one bit, in fact, we the opposite of don't mind, which is... umm... we're really happy about it. 

Take a look at the party and our wedding tea towels in action and if you've got something a bit different you'd like to use wedding tea towels for, then just ask! We're very friendly I promise and the answer is usually going to be a massive Y.E.S!





To see all our designs take a look at our site or if you've got any questions or anything you'd like to talk through then email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk, I love to chat tea towels!

See you later

My superpower...



Some have super strength, some have x ray vision and some have bad ass kung fu fighting skills. Me? I have the power to... sniff out a wedding. Literally ANYWHERE IN THE WHOLE WORLD.

Take our recent holiday for example, we were cruising around the Mediterranean, perhaps not much chance to spot a wedding for you regular folk but for me, easy.

We got off the boat... I mean ship (you're not allowed to call 'her' a boat apparently) in Italy and off we went on a bus to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and look what was going on. A wedding. I mean that's got to be up there with the best as a pretty special place to get married.

Then, on the ship, I just went for a wonder around the decks and what do I spy happening in The Bridge? You guessed it.



I did also see another bride but I was walking behind her and thought she'd think I was bonkers if I started taking her photo so you'll just have to trust me on that one.

So, there is it. Wherever there is a wedding, I will be there. No sweat.

Hope you're all having a lovely Summer and doing lots of lovely things.



Bye Bye for now.

Dogs + Weddings = Ultimate Happiness


What do people love almost as much as they love weddings? That's right! Pets.

... and what do pets like almost as much as they like food and cuddles? That's right again! Our wonderful wedding tea towels. Let the proof speak for itself.

Massive thanks to Ernie to letting us use his pic on the blog. He's awful shy...


And look at this guy, wearing his as a cape. He's so suave. 

So they say pets are the best judge of character and turns out that's true. 
We are really nice people!

Come and say hello to us sometime on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk or check out what we do first.

Bye for now

Ooooooohhhhhh I hear you cry! Go now and then tell me your three things in the comments below.

Let's get this wedding started...!


So, you're a fun couple... your guests are fun... and you want your wedding to be fun, right?

So let's kick it all off that way. The chance for you to show everyone your wedding is going to be the best one they've ever been to starts the moment your invitations hit your loved ones grabby little paws.

Why send out a stuffy old paper invite when you could send an Original wedding tea towel and inspire your friends and family to respond to you in amazing ways like this... I mean, imagine how long it took that person to dig out the oldest, scruffiest tea towel they could find and spray 'Yes' on it.







These were balloons btw.












So if you can find me one other invitation that can inspire this level of greatness, I wanna hear about it!

If you want to make your wedding super fun too then email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk and you can see all of our fab designs just here in our Gallery.

Bye for now!

Just realised, popping the question must be really REALLY nerve-wracking. What's your story?



I posted a video this week on our Facebook page of a Policeman proposing to his boyfriend at Gay Pride, it was one of those really heartwarming moments when you know you've just witnessed something special. Man, he must have been nervous.

And this got me thinking something that I haven't ever really given much thought to before... it must be really REALLY nerve wracking to propose.

I guess once you're at that stage, you're pretty confident they are going to say 'Yes' but then the pressure is on the asker to get the setting right, so the 'how did you pop the question?' story is always a winner at dinner parties.

We got engaged in 2007 in Cape Town. Ben had made me this gorgeous photobook of loads of the amazing stuff we'd done together and then the last page was a photo of the ring, and it said 'It's been fun, wanna do it forever?' I said yes and we were getting married. Horray!

Then we went out to a restaurant but I was too excited to eat and the people next to us just kept laughing at me because I spent the whole time gazing at my ring. Like this...


And pretending to talk to people properly but really all I was doing was looking how my ring looked at different angles / in different lights / different settings... had everyone noticed I was now an engaged woman?!



So that's how it happened for us and in case you're wondering Ben was absolutely petrified. So, what's your story?

Then when we got married, we decided to send out wedding tea towels... don't worry though, I'm not going to go through all that again. I'm pretty sure, as you're here with us, you already know how this story ended... and it's a weddingteatowels.co.uk

Bye for now

Real wedding - Helen & Dean



Hooray! Hooray! One of our couples is showing their wedding on the fabulous Whimsical Wonderland Weddings blog, and you really should check it out because it is all kinds of stunning. The full blog is here.

But in the meantime, let's just take a moment to look at their wedding tea towels draped so beautifully on the back of their chairs... on the top table, no less! The most prestigious spot they could have hoped for! These guys have really fulfilled their wedding tea towel destiny. (or actually, would that be to spend a lifetime drying up... anyway...)

Congratulations Helen & Dean. Your whole day looked perfect and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together xx

The actual Princess and a wedding tea towel...



Look! It's Belle. In Disney, Florida. Next to one of our wedding tea towels. WAAAAAAHHH!!

I can only imagine how confused she must have been but who cares! It can't be the strangest thing she's ever been asked to have her photo taken next to. The coolest probably though.

This photo has also earned me super mummy points with our four year old daughter!

Nothing more to say on this except for, once again, WAAAAAAAHHHH!!

If you want your friends to be able to hunt down a Disney Princess with one of your invitations like Lee & Katie's lovely friend did, then you need to go straight to our design page here or email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk

It really is a small world after all.
