The thought of having an inexpensive wedding can be scary for some, how can you...
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.
Happy Friday everyone how are you all coping with the heat? I have to admit I am hiding from it today and taking Dexter to the nice air conditioned cinema, crazy I know but it’s just too hot for me and my little ginger head! This weekend we are off to Gloworm festival in Nottingham, it’s set to be 31 degrees!! Eek! not sure how long we will last! and next week when we are actually on holiday at Tattersall Lakes it’s forecast to rain, blooming typical!! Anyway enough weather chat, lets talk about today’s wedding. Melanie and Joshua were married on 17th October 2020 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Covid did a lot to the wedding industry, most of it bad, however this gorgeous couple took the situation and used it to their advantage and managed to create their dream backyard wedding. Due to the restrictions on numbers they were able to have the fall wedding they had always dreamt of. Big thanks to Eastlyn & Joshua for the lovely photos.
