Here at Boho Weddings it’s pretty safe to say that I LOVE all things Boho....
Happy Friday everyone, I hope you are all well and happy and have had a productive week? Are you feeling festive yet? Have you got your tree up? Normally by now we would have our decorations up, but this year because of the building work on the house we have had to wait a couple more weeks. I am hoping we can get the decorations up next weekend, inside and out. This weekend we are hopefully going ice-skating (weather permitting) and also buying a few more decorations from our favourite Christmas decoration shop. On Sunday we are doing Christmas at Chatsworth, which will be very festive, I can’t wait! On with today’s wedding and it’s the turn of Maria and Sebastian who held their romantic wedding in Sicily, with the most gorgeous flowers and soft, elegant decoration. Big thanks to Simona Parisi of Brilliant Wedding for the lovely submission.
Maria and Sebastian were married on 4th September 2020, with the reception at Baglio Aversa in Sicily. ‘We loved the The immense magical atmosphere in nature, the essence of the tradition emanating from the environments and objects, the possibility of having a cozy and intimate space, the helpfulness and kindness of the owner Giovanni. We had 110 guests and it took one year to plan.’
Today I am taking you on a feast for the senses, with delicious food, delightful flowers and the most stunning decor. This styled shoot is the perfect way to ease you into this cold Thursday morning. The shoot took place on 26th August at The Vine in New Ulm, Texas. It was put together by EPOCH CO+ Events and captured by Tiny Mum Photography. I just adore the colours, the rich yellows and oranges make this perfect for an autumn wedding, but also for a summer wedding with the deep citrus tones. The food is a great example of how you can turn a mciro wedding into a full on feast! Your guests will be super happy if they turned up to a wedding like this one, with full bellies as well as a feast for the eyes.
Yesterday on the blog it was all about the hens and how to have an Adventure-Seeking Hen Weekend. In the interest of balance and not leaving the boys out, today I thought it would make a change to focus on the groom. Stag do’s and Bachelor parties have the reputation for being, alcohol filled, messy, affairs, which often lead to many a story for the best mans speech. BUT stag dos’ have come a long way, so maybe it’s time to think if that is what the groom really wants. So today I have enlisted the help of stag party expert Anthony to give us his advice on organising the best Bachelor party.
As the organiser of the Bachelor Party or Stag Do you have a lot of planning ahead of you. It’s important to gather all the wants and desires from the bachelor himself.
Of course, being the Best Man presents a double responsibility. Not only are you in charge of organising a memorable Bachelor Night, but you will of course be his right-hand-man on the big day itself. Having organised an awesome Bachelor Night should certainly help supply plenty of anecdotal material for that all important Best Man’s Speech too.
Unless you are going to completely surprise the bachelor with a weekend then the first thing you should do is take him down the pub for a few beers, and get as much information from him about his expectations for the bachelor celebrations. There is no reason why the bachelor shouldn’t be involved in the planning process, so use him.
Having a frank discussion with him will help you ascertain the potential level of debauchery (if any). For instance, if he mentions the words ‘strip bar’ then you’ll be planning something very different compared to if he just wants a weekend away staying in a remote country lodge. It’s also important in the early planning stages to find out what kind of activities he might like to do.
Once armed with the information from the bachelor, the serious job of planning the weekend can start.
I have another busy day on the blog today, starting with this gorgeous mountain wedding which has been sent into me by Kate Fore. Kelcey and Andrew were married on 18th July 2020 at Deer Creek Valley Ranch in Bailey Colorado. They are both big lovers of the outdoors, so they wanted to keep their wedding as close to nature as possible, reflecting their passion for outdoor living in their celebration. They opted for a mountain venue, which gave them breath taking views and the most stunning of backdrops and lots of super cute DIY decoration.
When it comes to planning a hen do, it’s safe to say that most ideas have been done to death. We’ve all been out on a Saturday night and seen a rowdy gaggle of hens or a macho group of stags sway their way down the street and into another bar. And there’s nothing wrong with that, if that’s what the bride or groom have requested. But why settle for the unoriginal, when you could plan an adventure?
If you want something fun, fresh and easy to organise, here’s a few adventurous ideas for those looking for more than the average hen do in the South West.
For a hilarious and totally original Bristol hen weekend, you’ll struggle to top West Country Games. Set in the heart of the Southwest countryside, yet just four miles from the bustle of Bristol city centre, West Country Games offers a crazy array of group activities that will bring everyone together. Designed with all abilities in mind, the whole hen party will take part in all sorts of funny shenanigans, from Cider Run, Welly wanging and West Country Wipeout, to name a few. From the timid, to the loud and brash characters in the group, you’re all guaranteed to “laugh yer ruddy ‘ed off!’
