Wedding Wednesday: A Colorful Reblog

Wedding Wednesday (1)

First, I know that it’s been three weeks since my last Wedding Wednesday. I’m using my trip to Nashville for the ACFW Conference as my excuse. But really, there is no true excuse. I’m just bad.

I’m also not above using a picture of the cutest kitten around to get all your feels going.

But I digress.

When I was researching for today’s Wedding Wednesday post, I came across this stunning dress, so I clicked on all the links to track it down (as I always do), and came across the photographer’s pictures of the entire wedding.

Oh. My. Word.

You guys. This entire wedding is a stunner. So rather than curate a wedding this week, I’m just going to point you in the direction of the photographer’s blog post. Because gorgeous. The venue, the decor, the FLOWERS. And that dress.

I want the dress.

So go read it and enjoy the fab photography (if you’re in his area, he looks like a lot of fun!) and creativeness of the bride and groom in this colorful wedding!

Wedding Wednesday: A Civil Affair

Wedding Wednesday (1)

Oh. My. Goodness. I can’t believe I’m late on this post. Again. Slap me upside the head!

So in honor of a very quick post written just before the end of the night, how about a quick wedding? An elopement? So let’s get down to City Hall!

The dress:

For an elopement, you’re not likely to have a ginormous gown, but really…I’d still want a wedding gown. Who can resist this sweet frock?

Even though you’re having a City Hall ceremony, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a fab bouquet! This smaller one is convenient (less to carry and hold onto when you’re waiting for your number to be called) but still stunning.

The announcement:

Because you’re going to need a cute way to tell everyone you just eloped!

The reception:

When you get married at City Hall, you’re saving a lot of money. So why not throw a moderate-sized party for your family and closest friends?

Have your reception at a downtown restaurant! Restaurants located in old factories with exposed brick and beams give a fab atmosphere…so much so, you likely wouldn’t need any decorations except maybe some special table settings brought in.

The ring:

Because why not?

This is such a simple, sweet engagement ring, but still totally unique…just like you. aieRkxaLT

So, my patient people? Would you ever have a City Hall wedding? They can be so fun!

Wedding Wednesday: A Steampunk Wedding

Wedding Wednesday (1)

So this is a last-minute post. It’s Tuesday night and I just realized tomorrow is Wedding Wednesday! Eek! So I went to peruse Pinterest (duh) and was struck by the realization that I haven’t (gasp!) done a Steampunk wedding! Because yes! (Wait for the cake, you guys. To. Die. For.)

The dress:

I. Love. This. Dress. And that’s really all I can say. Because it’s gorgeous.

The shoes:

Okay. So these are more scroll work than steampunk, but still. I love them.

The rings:

How cool are these??

The cake:

I die. (Yes. That is a real cake.)

The invitations:

I die. Again.

The guestbook:

Would this not make a fantastic guestbook for a steampunk wedding?

So? What did you think? Would you do a steampunk wedding? I’ll admit it’s not my normal style, but I can’t help but love it!

Wedding Wednesday: Vintage Glam

It’s that time again!

Wedding Wednesday (1)

Hm. What kind of wedding are we thinking this week? I have a whole list of ideas, but I just saw a cake on Pinterest, so I’m breaking my norm of building a wedding around a dress: I’m building it around the cake instead!

Ready?

A Vintage Glam Wedding

First, the cake:

Isn’t it devine??

The stunning dress:

I love, love, love how the shoulder and back draping echoes the draping on the cake. How perfect?!

Because wearing a veil over that back would be a shame–in my humble opinion, of course–I present the hairpiece:

Again, the draping. Because apparently that’s what I need to see today.

The outdoor room:

This outdoor room is absolutely perfect for photo set-ups, like this one, as well as a quiet spot for the newlyweds to rest–and smooch!–during the reception. I think this is so perfect!

The table setting:

Every vintage glam wedding needs some gold!

The bouquet:

(Oh, I’m excited about this one!)

I. Adore. This.

Brooch bouquets are so exquisitely beautiful when paired with the right style of wedding. And dress. Okay, so this may be too much to go with the dress I chose, but I don’t care. 😉

So there’s the Vintage Glam Wedding for today! What do you think? What would you keep? Change? What’s your idea of the perfect wedding style?
