Over the last few months I have been sharing all my wedding loves over on my Instagram account. Everything from bouquets to wedding décor and overall style. The culmination of this has to be the dress.When I was getting married I thought I did a lot of research into designers, but my eyes have really been opened to an incredible array of designers since I have been doing this blog. From couture to small start ups I can assure you if your dream dress hasn’t already been made there is a designer out there who can make that dream a reality. I have the privilege of working for Miss Bush Bridalwear and seeing the great edit Emma Meek, MD has put together of some British greats to Spanish wonders. But it has also been through wedding blogs like Love My Dress, Rock My Wedding and Rock n Roll Bride that I have found so many amazing designers I’ll have to renew my vows every year.
The style I’m most drawn to is definitely Bohemian/Ethereal so I’m quite excited to see dresses from Grace Loves Lace, Yolan Cris, Samuelle Couture, and whenever I’m at Miss Bush I’m swooning over the latest Jesús Pieró additions.
Here’s a run down of all my other wedding loves.
POLKA DOTS // over the next few weeks I'm going to be sharing my wedding loves; from wedding dresses to bouquets, what catches my eye every time. To start us off I've picked polka dots. Whether it's in the veil, dress, bridesmaid dresses I love it. For my wedding I wore the @maggiesottero Boston which has a very pretty layer of polka dots. Even now many of the dresses I'm drawn to feature some sort of dot pattern. #polkadots #wedding #weddingplanning #weddinginspiration #instadaily #veil #weddingdress #pretty
FLORAL CROWN // wedding fave no.2. Continuing on from polka dots and my wedding favourites is a floral crown. In fact flowers in wedding hair full stop I just love. Whether it's sprigs of baby's breath or a full on crown I just can't get enough. This is my floral circlet put together by the wonderful @sharonrobertshair flowers by @rosiesgrow image by @vandaRPhoto I was super proud to see this make @lovemydress list of favourite 2014 weddings too. #weddinghair #weddinginspiration #flowers #flowersinherhair #floralcrown #instadaily #instawedding #weddingplanning #springwedding #peachwedding #braid
FLORAL BRIDESMAID DRESSES // wedding love no.3 is floral bridesmaid dresses. I knew when I first saw the @tedbaker dresses (top left) I had to have them. They were everything I wanted in a bridesmaid dress including the soft Spring colours. I'm certainly drawn to weddings that feature a floral number, whether it's vintage, designer or high street I think they look fab and can be a great starting point if you're unsure of what colour theme you'd like. Plus they're very much a wear again dress for bridesmaids. If that's what you're thinking you'd like then @ASOS @tedbaker @etsy are usually a great source. #bridesmaid #weddingwednesday #wedding #instadaily #instawedding #floraldress #weddinginspiration #weddingplanning
STARDUST // I love a t-bar shoe and if they've got a bit of sparkle even better. These beauties are from @xobetseyjohnson Blue range. Perfect for your something new and something blue. #shoes #heels #wedding #instadaily #instawedding #gold #rosegold #glitter #weddinginspiration #weddingplanning #somethingblue
CAPES COATS CARDIS // with the weather cooling down in the UK brides will be looking for something to keep them warm. Another wedding love of mine is any of the above with a wedding dress. I wore cardigan for my wedding day after trying denim, leather and tweed jackets and a fabulous father cape from @biba . Here are some very fine examples of how great keeping warm can look. #wedding #instadaily #instawedding #weddinginspiration #weddingplanning #weddingdress
BOUQUET // I like them big, blowsy and seasonal. Flowers were a huge part of my wedding and it's surprising the number of brides I talk to who didn't think they'd be that worried about flowers but have come to realise they can't get enough of them. You can find out more about these bouquets on my seasonal Pinterest boards. From top left clockwise Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter #instadaily #weddingflowers #flowers #bouquet #instawedding #weddingplanning #wedding #pretty
GARLAND // ooooo I love a good garland and backdrop for that matter; paper flowers, crepe streamers, geometric, paper cranes, tassels and feathers it's all good. From the simple DIY project to walls of paper flowers a garland or backdrop can transform a venue from meh to 'mazing. Check out my Garland and Backdrop Pinterest board for more ideas and Links to DIY projects. #weddingdiy #weddingplanning #instadaily #instawedding #decoration #garland #backdrop #amazing
RUSTIC // if I could some up the style of wedding I love the most in one word it would be "rustic". My Grandma often comments on how my wedding reminded her of how weddings used to be. No fuss (though it had taken me almost a full year to collect the trinkets for the table!) a simple setting, seasonal flowers, straight forward food, good drink, family and friends and our love. Though there is hard work behind every wedding, big or small, I am most drawn to, enjoy reading and looking at rustic weddings. Everything about them; the flowers, the decoration, the outfits, the setting it's all just right up my street. It's not a show it's about friends and family coming together to watch two people in love marry and to celebrate that. Image Credit Naomi Kenton.
