Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have all had a wonderful week. I am struggling...
Photo booths have been a thing of joy at weddings and parties for a long time now. I remember when they first emerged in the wedding world, we all thought they would be a flash in the pan, but years on guests all around the world are still loving the concept of a photo booth, whether it be a big full scale sit in and pull the curtain type photo booth, a magic mirror, or a fancy themed backdrop photo booth. The price can vary from company to company, or you can spend a bit of time and create your own. Today we are going to show a DIY option that may be just what you are looking for.
The first reason is that most people love to pose for pictures and will probably want to have not only virtual pics from the wedding but also real photos that can be framed, placed in an album, or simply attached to the wall. As a rule, such a zone is the most rocking spot at a party (after the dance floor, of course).
The second big advantage is that a photo booth doesn’t require a real photographer. People won’t get diffident, therefore, the pics will be lively and carefree. Moreover, in the booth, they can take dozens and hundreds of photos, and then choose the ones they like.
Today we are back with our regular feature ‘Advice from the Married Side,‘ real life wedding planning advice from all the lovely brides and grooms I have featured on the blog.
I get to feature so many amazing real weddings here on the blog and with each wedding I ask the couple to share with us their wedding planning knowledge and experiences. This post is a super useful collection of wedding wisdom from those who have just got married, to help you on your own wedding planning journey. I hope there will be something amongst these experiences that help you. Happy Planning!
Even though it is still summer I do love a fall, or autumn wedding as we say here in England! The rich colours, the deep tones, the falling leaves, the golden backdrop, so many beautiful colourways! Today’s wedding is all about orange, with stunning flowers and the most divine autumn decoration, it really is a treat if you love all things autumn. Ashley and Jonah were married on 16th October 2021 in Jefferson, Georgia, they held a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and then a stunning orange filled reception. Big thanks to Hellen Oliveira Photography for the lovely photos.
Boho is such an on trend style for weddings at the moment. When I started this blog nearly 13 years ago, it was a very niche market, now its super popular and has grown into a huge trend. It’s not just boho these days, there are so many sub sections of Boho you can look at, there really is a Boho for every kind of Bride. Today we are looking at ‘How to Create a Boho-Chic Wedding Style’, what Boho can mean and how to make sure your wedding is the right style of Boho for your wedding personality!
Don’t be fooled. Even though boho is meant to feel effortless and “thrown together,” it is so very much more than that. Be very specific when meeting with a planner and imagining how the wedding will look. Will you for Desert boho, beach boho, modern boho, farmhouse boho, 70s Topanga Canyon boho, the choice is endless! Sometimes it’s helpful to pick the dress first. Remember – boho chic isn’t just a matter of selecting a colour palette. It’s also a matter of committing to a texture. Brides should do their fabric homework and think through their wedding jewelry options.
Simple is best. Otherwise, your thematic decor devolves into the kind of hodgepodge that leaves guests feeling claustrophobic. Too often brides think they are broadcasting “free spirit’ when really they are painstakingly staging an unappealing rummage sale. Consider how often going for a tousled hairstyle just looks like “woke up outside in an electrical storm”
Happy Monday and welcome to the start of another wonderful week. I hope you all had a great weekend and that you survived yet another hot spell here in the UK. We spent the weekend at Gloworm festival, which is a festival especially for children. Dexter had a ball, so many things to see and do. Now we are off to Tattersall Lakes for the week, so my out of office is well and truly on! I can’t wait for a week full of activities with my two boys, we go every year and it’s always a fun filled holiday! I have lots to keep you occupied while I am away though, starting with the wedding of Chelsea and Charles who were married on 18th January 2022 in Dayton, Ohio. The couple held an intimate ceremony in a gorgeous industrial building with 50 of their closest friends and family, followed by a big party reception. This wedding is cool, modern with a boho twist and filled to the brim with love and laughter. Big thanks to Amber Garrett Photography for the lovely images.
