CITRUS WEDDING

It’s been a long time since I’ve touched on the wedding subject, but it’s no big secret I am a big fan of the whole wedding scene. I love the idea of pouring all your energy and creativity into one big event. I can’t wait to plan my own wedding some day, my biggest issue is gonna come down to not getting too hung up on every little detail. . . I have a tendency to get a bit detailed oriented, in most aspects of life, I can spend half a day cleaning one shelf. Well, back to the theme of the night, the autumnal wedding! In my eyes. autumn is the perfect season for a wedding… We’re talking amazing colors, crisp autumn weather (I don’t want to be overheated on my wedding day) and on top of it all; wedding peak season is over! Personally I would love a wedding just about the time where autumn breaks out, where the lines between the seasons are perfectly blended, and then add it with some brightness from a few citrus additions – that would make me happy!

I recently came across Paperless Postwhich gives you the option to do your invites online, great option, but I must admit I am more of a paper in hand kinda girl when it comes to wedding invitation. No worries, you can also get the invites in the old-fashioned paper form… They have a great collection of wedding invitations. I fell in love with this lovely invitation from Rifle Paper Co., Citrus Orchard, and I thought it would be a great starting point for a wedding inspiration post.

So here it is, a citrus autumn wedding inspiration flow, enjoy!

GEOMETRIC WEDDING

I do like wedding themes, but to me they very often end up getting a bit to grand or unfathomable… Like I wouldn’t know where to start if someone told me I was having a “Alice in Wonderland” or “Prince of Arabia” themed wedding. But today I will share a theme I think I could manage to sort out – pretty quickly even! The geometric wedding theme. Let’s kick it off with the basics: I like weddings, I like geometry – so I think I might enjoy the two combined. Just have a look at this load of greatness!

Geometric madness – but to me it will be called brilliant madness – via

This might just be the most beautiful tablescape I have ever seen! Perfect madness on a big plate… via

In love with that backdrop… via

Metallic geometric hang it from the ceiling kinda feel! via

Not only do I adore these decorations – I also adore the color choices – my kinda wedding colors! via

Do I see a DIY coming? via

I might be in love with this – ticking quite a few boxes – a tad of industrial, a tad of geometry and if I’m not mistaken a tad of metallic greatness… via

These two are for the geometric bride – via

Simple yet amazing table decorations – via

Great geometric backdrop for wedding photos – via

The stationary! via

Another DIY idea – cut wood into geometric pieces and paint them in whatever colors fits your wedding day – then organize them along the different tables – like a wooden runner… via

Geometric place cards combined with different rocks – via

More geometric paper trails – via

Guess what – it’s another DIY idea for the crafty brides and grooms out there – a lovely geometric backdrop – good luck to the ones who takes it on! via

How about some geometric nails for the geometric bride? via

The ceremony set up – via

Lovely place cards – via

Tablescape greatness – via

 Cute DIY favor tags for the guests – simple deal right there… via

Geometric backdrop – absolutely not opposed to this! via

I think that’s it for now, so tell me, are you going to be a geometric bride? I know I would if I was getting married right this second.

WEDDING DESTINATION: PALM SPRINGS

I might have given a hint before; I feel like me and Palm Springs would have a lot of fun together. If I ever end up having a (long distance) destination wedding, guess what, Palm Springs would be my #1 destination pick! And here are some of the reasons why (of course shown through the medium of images). Just have a look at these Palm Springs weddings:

THE RUSTIC WEDDING

Once again autumn is upon us and so is the rustic weddings. I feel like there is no better season for rustic than autumn. So here is some rustic wedding inspiration – and my idea of what would make a rustic night perfect.

The Rustic Bride

In my eyes the perfect rustic bride has a certain vintage feel to her. Most wedding dresses would work for a rustic wedding,- especially if it goes down the romantic route. My favorites must be 1 and 4.

The Rustic Groom

Again, when it comes to the groom I say go vintage, go romantic. I say yes to bow ties, feathers, tweed, wool and dapper hats.

The Rustic Wedding Party

For the wedding party I am still holding one finger on vintage and one on romantic. How about that dog?

The Rustic Accessories

My favorites for the rustic bride would be a lovely floral crown, or maybe a crown made from olive branches. A gorgeous red lip and for those who are doing a farm event, how about some western boots?

The Rustic Flowers

Once again, back to great simplicity, with a romantic vintage feel. I absolutely love the olive branches in picture one, but the greatest piece must be the acorn boutonniere. It makes me feel like adding more acorns to my floral arrangements…

RUSTIC-FLOWERS

The Rustic Ceremony

To me the perfect rustic ceremony would be under a collection of flowers, moss, origami or lovely light – outside – mid-forest. And how about adding some lovely petals for your guests, flower confetti is never wrong.

The Rustic Reception

Again, let’s take it outside or to the farm! Give me a great band, fairy lights and tons of florals. A rustic affair is meant to be a relaxed affair – so make it cozy! I love the serpentine table in picture 6.

RUSTIC-RECEPTION

1. via 2. via 3. via 4. via 5. via 6. via

The Rustic Tablescape

My idea of a great tablescape for a rustic wedding is a lovely wooden table covered in gorgeous florals, candles and how about some golden cutlery. Oh and I am loving the idea of giving your guests an apple!

Go vintage, go romantic, go for great typography, go natural!

The Rustic Decor

I am on about the same idea – bring on the bunting, bring on the vases created from old bottles, loads of candles and florals all over the place!

The Rustic Cake

I have this thing for naked cakes! Common – bring it on – the cake in picture 1 is absolute perfection. I am also liking the idea of the cheese “cake” in picture 5. Still, if you are going for a white cake for the rustic day cover it in blackberries, petals or maybe some gorgeous lavender?

The Rustic Food & Drink

For the food and drink stick true to the rest of your day. Go for rustic food, bottles of beer in a wheelbarrow filled with ice. You get my drift!

FERN WEDDING

Autumn is here and so is the autumn weddings. Prepare for cooler days, lovely earth and jewel tones and a lot of greens… I feel like the woodland trend is a given for autumn! And one of the main green trends for autumn is fern. So how can you incorporate a bit of lovely fern in your big day? How about using some fern in your bouquet? Or how about as place cards for your guests? Or as decor on your cake?

THE FLORAL CROWN

I know! I should have done this one way back, but you know what, I still find the floral crowns just as gorgeous! I generally find flowers gorgeous, every week I go to a floral shop, pick up a bunch of different flowers, walk home and arrange the flowers (hoping it will turn out gorgeous)… I am probably going to bring more flowers into my posts in the future, so let this be a start of something good!

INDUSTRIAL WEDDING

So… I have been thinking a bit about the coolness of an industrial looking wedding… A friend of mine was talking about it the other day, how she is considering a more industrial feel to her wedding and she wanted a bit of ideas and advice…So this is basically for her – my friend with a dream about a not so traditional industrial warehouse wedding… Hope she gets her dream, and I get to help her fulfill it! To me there is an almost rustic charm to an industrial wedding, there is something incredibly cosy about what would seem hard to make cozy (for example a warehouse)… Here is some of the inspiration I’ve been gathering for my friend, hope it is just as enjoyable for you as it will be for her!

The Industrial Bride & Groom

To me a bride that goes for an industrial/warehouse wedding can get away with almost anything – the same basically counts for the groom… I must say I would steer away from the ball gown style and the to laced out ones – I am thinking minimalism at its best… It could also be with a vintage flair or a crazy golden gown – because to me – if you choose to go for a warehouse for your wedding – out with the rulebook in with the creative mindset! For the groom I would probably go for something simple – probably black or grey – with a dash of quirky – but hey, that’s just me!

The Industrial Tablescape

When it comes to the table setting – I have one thing to say (or maybe a few);

keep it simple, keep it natural, keep it charming, keep it rustic – save the fancy pansy for later!

INDUSTRIAL-tables

1. via 2. via 3. via 4. via 5. via 6. via

The Industrial Flowers

To me, this is just another area to let your creativity run completely wild… Base your choices in your colour pallet, and build around it with complimentary colours and maybe some aspects from nature, like berries (image 1) or moss… Also you could choose to be more creative in your choice of floral display like image 2, where the floral composition is hung from the ceiling. Or how about going for a multi coloured creation scattered around – like image 6?

INDUSTRIAL-FLOWERS

1. via 2. via 3. via 4. via 5. via 6. via

The Industrial Stationary

Here I am thinking; keep it simple, keep it cool. . . Maybe play around with some pops of colour to bring a punch of brightness or how about bringing in some graphic patterns? In image 5 they are both present, and it is looking good!

INDUSTRIAL-STATIONARY

1. via 2. via 3. via 4. via 5. via 6. via

The Industrial Ceremony

The ceremony space should be filled with lights, I am thinking candle lights, strings of fairy light, diy pendants hanging down… I must admit I adore the light letters in image nmr 1. I am also feeling like a backdrop full of creative flair would suit this setting more than anything – I am a great fan of the driftwood, the doors and the different paper fans – or you could just go for a simple background – like the exposed brick that came with the space!

INDUSTRIAL-CEREMONY

1. via 2. via 3. via 4. via 5. via 6. via

The Industrial Reception

For the reception I would carry on with the overload of light! Just look at these images which all displays great use of light to add to the reception space of an industrial warehouse kinda wedding. One of my favorites must be the glass boxed mounted on the wall to be used as shelves for greens and candle light… I want to do that in my home! Think I just have to – hallway project needs to be started.

INDUSTRIAL-RECEPTION

1. via 2. via 3. via 4. via 5. via 6. via

The Industrial Cake

When it comes to the cake I would suggest going for something down right simple and almost naked – if you get my drift… I feel like that is what an industrial styled wedding is about – stripping it down and making it fabulous from there on out! I am imagining simple sweet tables, with vintage and galvanized trays for serving – like in picture 2 & 5. Or you can go for a bit of a modern twist, pulling in geometric shapes and symbols – like a geometric pattern across your cake or maybe a chevron cake?

So tell me – is the industrial way the way for you?

A WEDDING FEAST FOR THE EYES

I came across a wedding that not only deserves to be shared, it needs to! Found this treat over at Rock’n’RollBride – and this wedding is basically a mix between dinosaurs, zombies and ghosts, oh and of course there is a gorgeous burlesque dancer doing her thing… I know it sounds pretty insane, but let me tell you it is insane in the best of ways. This is an absolute feast for the eyes, the mind and the soul! I have gathered some of my favorite shots from the day so I could share it with you, enjoy!

The wedding is shot by Assassynation, and once again you can check out the rest of the photos here.
