Eco-Friendly Wedding in Slovenia

Jasmina and Mihael’s Slovenian wedding was all about nature. They kept things small and they spent only €1000 on the day. “Our colours were white, black and dark green with elements of wood, jute and lace”, said the bride. “We wanted to have a lot of wooden elements and to completely ban plastic from our table sets.”

“We were inspired by other eco-friendly weddings that we saw online but we wanted to have our wedding under our terms. It was a really nice to have an outdoor wedding with home-prepared food. Everything was vegan and vegetarian too. We gave homemade hemp soap as favours.”

Colourful & Budget-Friendly Village Hall Wedding

Colourful & Budget-Friendly Village Hall Wedding (40)

Fee and Steve’s fabulously colourful, budget friendly wedding took place at Hemingford Abbots Village Hall in Cambridgeshire. “We wanted a fun day that we were both involved in”, Fee explained. “We didn’t wait it to just be about the bride, but both of us equally. Lots of colour was involved, and guests were requested to leave office attire at home! We both wanted to have a day that was about us, so we ensured that we included as much about us as possible. Early on in the planning we trawled wedding blogs, but mainly just looked at Rock n Roll Bride as we found that is was the only blog that included low budget weddings, and weddings that encompassed different themes.”

“We also made sure that we threw out any traditions that we weren’t sure on. We both wanted to embrace our feminist and humanist values, and only use traditions that we felt were appropriate to us.”

The bride wore a beautiful green dress from Honeypie Boutique. “My dress gets quite a few comments, with most people asking why I chose green, instead of white. This really encompassed the whole day for us though, as we chose the traditions that were applicable to us. Steve also gets lots of comments about how great his outfit was!”

Allison and Cameron’s colourful wedding took place in Austin in October. They wanted a simple, low-pressure day, with minimal stress. “Cameron and I honestly never wanted a wedding”, said the bride. “I get anxiety when I throw an event, and I am always worried if everyone else is having a good time that I forget to have a good time myself. However, since our mothers would never forgive us if we didn’t have one, we decided to do it our way. We wanted something low-stress and intimate, where we could mingle with all the guests and have a great time.”

The Sunday wedding was a morning and early afternoon event, meaning they served brunch and the whole thing was over by the evening. “Having a brunch wedding felt unique and alternative”, she explained. “Brunch may be the most popular meal in Austin, TX, and our wedding meal was no different. It was fun day drinking with our closest friends at a long family-style table. Our friends and family cheered us off on a ‘Just Married’ pedicab, and we took a brisk ride around downtown Austin taking it all it. After the reception we met up with some friends at our Airbnb across the street! Early in the evening Cam and I were able to split off and have a romantic dinner together and recall all of our favourite parts of the day! It was a really special moment.”
