It has been FOREVER since I’ve done a beach inspired board, and since we’ve had possibly the best summer on record and spent lots of time at the beach I thought it was about time!! I love the idea of wearing a coloured dress for a beach wedding and this gorgeous aquamarine number is stunning! I especially love that it’s still very elegant… not necessarily a ‘beach dress’ if you get my drift (see what I did there!!). And the guest names on drift wood are the most perfect touch!!
This title is a little misleading as I have at least 5 versions of my ‘dream wedding’. Of course I wouldn’t change a thing about the fabulous day we celebrated 8 years ago today, but since it’s our anniversary and I often get asked what direction my wedding would be if I got married now I thought it would be fun to visit that.
So let me just explain – I don’t think my wedding wouldn’t actually be this neutral. This was kinda a last minute idea since I didn’t have a post ready for today and I was out late at the movies last night (Silver Linings Playbook – have you seen? Soooo so good!!) so it was all a bit rushed. In all honesty I think I would be a nightmare of a bride if I were getting married now having been in the industry for a few years… I have NO idea how I’d actually make decisions on which way to go. And how to choose the photographer… eeek impossible decision! I love so many different styles of weddings and also colour combinations. I know that I definitely wouldn’t have an indoor or ballroom wedding or anything overly modern, that just isn’t me. It would absolutely be outdoors in the country. We got married at Mudbrick Vineyard and I have to admit I still LOVE a vineyard wedding! The settings are so romantic! But I also really love the idea of a ceremony under a big tree in a field followed by a reception with long tables and beautiful lights strung up all around… maybe in a little forest nook. I love these Temperley dresses… romantic with a hint of boho about them. My hair I would wear up (very rarely do I wear it down), but very loose and ‘un-done’, shoes… loving these gorgeous Louboutin t-bar sandals. Now the groom… here’s where I had to be a bit more realistic! I love bow-ties and suspenders, but I know I wouldn’ t have a hope of getting my hubby into them… nor would they work for him I don’t think, however a classic grey suit would be perfect for him.
I was thinking I’d do another board with the decor, bridesmaids options, stationery etc, but honestly I don’t think I could refine it down to a singular look right now!
IT issues drive me insane!! Sorry but it had to be said! I’m really having a week of it! I wish I had a IT person sitting in the next room sometimes – at my beck and call! Admittedly I’m pretty hopeless technically… and even when people do explain things to me it’s a bit of a case of ‘in one ear, out the other’. I’m still dreaming of pretty inspiration boards and the like while they’re getting into boring technical details! Right now we’ve have outgrown our server so are transferring everything over today hopefully and we’ll be back to normal quick smart. I also have webpages that simply don’t load – this happens a lot… does anyone else have this issue? Like pinterest – just stops loading all. the. time! Annoying. And don’t even get me started on the weird email gremlins I have going on… possibly the strangest issue of them all!
Phew ok I feel better now that I’ve got my grumble out of the way… hopefully this pretty board makes up for it! Now I can go on and enjoy this lovely sunny day! Thanks for listening!
It’s only taken me 48 hours to get this post up!! Having a few server issues that are taking a bit longer to iron out than anticipated. So I’ll keep this post short as I have much to get on with but I wish you all a fabulous weekend!! Oh and don’t you just love a good vineyard wedding!!
