We’re delighted to bring you this stunning collection of vintage-style wedding accessories from Heidi Lawton, designer and owner of Extra Special Touch. From her beautiful home studio in Nottingham, Heidi specialises in creating exquisite wedding accessories including garters, personalised handkerchiefs and wedding lingerie.
Inspired by the sophisticated ladies of times gone by, each piece is lovingly handmade from the finest silks, linen, cotton and (of course) world-renowned Nottingham lace. Embroidery or printing is included in the price of each item and Heidi also offers free delivery.
Personalised wedding handkerchiefs
If there’s one thing you can guarantee on a wedding day, it’s that there will be tears! Having a handkerchief at the ready is a must so why not make it an extra special one?
These personalised hankies from Extra Special Touch make the perfect gift for every member of the wedding party, from the bride and groom to their mothers and fathers, bridesmaids, flower-girls and groomsmen.
Each hankie can include names, dates or a special message. For longer messages (over 250 characters) opt for a printed hankie, rather than an embroidered one as the wording can be made small enough to fit.
Choose from traditional cotton handkerchiefs or linen, edged with delicate lace, for a truly personal wedding keepsake. Here are a few ideas to help inspire you, when you’re thinking of how to personalise yours:
Personalised wedding garters
The wedding garter can be the pièce de résistance in a bride’s wedding ensemble but it’s important to strike the right note. You’re aiming for sassy not trashy so be sure to invest in a timeless, elegant piece.
The garters on offer from Extra Special Touch are beautiful heirloom pieces that can be worn on your wedding day and then passed down to a future generation.
Made from the prettiest lace and threaded with ribbon, each garter is embellished with vintage crystals or diamanté detailing. Ribbons come in different shades, including a beautiful vintage blue, making this an ideal choice for the bride’s ‘something blue’.
Your garter can be embroidered with names and a wedding date or a special message and you can even add a sixpence if you want to keep it traditional.
Available in two sizes, to ensure a perfect fit, your wedding garter will be presented in a lovely gift box making it an ideal gift for the bride to be. Here are just a few of our favourite designs:
Personalised silk underwear and boxer shorts
Finally, to add even more fun to the proceedings, how about some luxurious, silk underwear, adorned with the newly-weds’ married name?
These ivory knickers are handmade from soft silk satin and French lace. You can include up to two words on the bottom, embroidered in a colour of your choice.
The silk jersey boxer shorts come in navy blue and, again, can be personalised with up to two words.
