Lorraine Candy, Editor in Chief: At the weekend I will be taking the family to their uncle’s wedding in Camden Register Office. I’ll be wearing my Whyred Uliana library-book dress that I bought in the Liberty sale this week and my Valentino wedges, even if it does rain.

On Sunday the wonderful press team at Ralph Lauren are taking my husband and I to the men’s singles final at Wimbledon. I’ll be wearing my Tucker silk shell-print dress and Stella flats, and as it is my birthday there’ll be champagne to drink!

I started my career on The Wimbledon News so this is the fourth men’s final I have seen. The first one featured Boris Becker, who I met afterwards in the press room – I think he was probably about 17 then! Rumour has it the Middleton sisters will be at Wimbledon on Sunday so expect a Twitpic!

I’ll be listening to one of my all-time favourite singles, Waterfall, by the newly reformed Stone Roses and reading Frenchman’s Creek, the only Daphne Du Maurier book I have yet to read.

Alice Parfrement, Acting PA to the Editor: 'I’m celebrating my anniversary with my boyfriend by heading out for a meal at Beach Blanket Babylon, Shoreditch. It’s a trendy bar/restaurant with gold decor that has an in-house DJ and amazing cocktails. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is incredible. On Sunday I’ll be pottering around Brick Lane in search of a great vintage find.'

I'll be watching: If it’s tipping it down I’ll be staying indoors watching my Lost box set

Soundtrack to my weekend: My current favourite band, Films of Colour

Julia Shutenko, Fashion Intern: ‘This weekend I will be trying out the brand new cable car over the Thames, Emirates Air Line. That will be a first in my life, so I’m pretty excited.’

Must-watch: Come Dine with Me

Soundtrack to my weekend: Emeli Sandé’s My Kind of Love

Seamus Duff, Entertainment Editor: ‘It’s a packed weekend for me! A friend's birthday tonight – a BBQ (thanks, rain) – and another friend’s wedding tomorrow and then Wireless festival on Sunday.’

Must-listen: (I've Had) The Time Of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes as it will inevitably get played by the wedding DJ. And Forget by Lianne La Havas ahead of her album release on Monday – she's awesome.

Must-watch: Rihanna on stage at Wireless – no time for TV

Carrie Tyler, Web Editor: ‘I’m going to a wedding in Clerkenwell on Saturday and toying between wearing a cream boucle Theyskens’ Theory dress (liberally accessoried with navy, but worried about the no-cream-at-weddings rule) and a long silvery grey Halston Heritage pleated gown accessoried with gold.’

I’ll be watching: On Sunday, I’ll be sheltering from the rain by finishing The Killing on boxset. Wallander series 3 also starts on BBC1. All this great TV and bad weather feels like autumn!

Avril Mair, Associate Editor: ‘I am going to watch Tinie Tempah play at Battersea Power Station on Sunday night as part of Nike's London 2012 build-up. Every guest wears a Nike Fuelband and the combined energy is going to light up the building. I am also having my nails done by David Barton – good enough for Louis Vuitton etc…’

I’ll be watching: Andy Murray in the Wimbledon Final (fingers crossed) and also the Tour de France

Natalie Wansbrough-Jones, Senior Fashion Editor: 'I will be hanging out with my toddler and friends and family. On Saturday we’ll probably go to The Hurlingham Club for lunch, and then the Farmers’ Market on Sunday.’

I’ll be watching: Modern Family on my iPad

Soundtrack to my weekend: Mystery Jets

Bonnie Rakhit, Market and Merchandising Editor: ‘This weekend I will be going to Wimbledon on Saturday – probably to be washed out and stand around getting soaked. Sunday probably involves sleep and a trip to Brixton village for brunch.

I’ll be watching: No time for TV in that mix!

Soundtrack to my weekend: My boyfriend’s blues band at a jazz festival in Dorset

Stacey Duguid, Executive Fashion Editor: 'Saturday evening is dinner with my best friend to celebrate her birthday at the Dock Kitchen. It looks like a warehouse from the outside and has been designed by Tom Dixon. I'm going to bake my first-ever cake this weekend – a rabbit cake – it's my son's first birthday next week so I need to do a practice run!’

I’ll be watching: Reading instead. I'm desperately trying to finish Advent, by James Treadwell. It's my boyfriend's brother's debut novel and the first part of a trilogy – I'm the last remaining family member to read it. Whoops.

Rosa-Safiah Connell, Fashion Assistant: ‘Will be going to London Fields Lido tomorrow for a swim, going to a party on a boat in the evening (if the weather holds out).’

Soundtrack to my weekend: Lana Del Rey’s National Anthem feat A$AP Rocky and Ridin' his single where Lana returned the collaboration favour
