Traditional Meets Rock n Roll

Ever feel like your not ‘out there’ enough with your wedding planning?  Feeling bad for being to traditional and like a fraud as a ‘rock n roll bride’ for wearing a white dress or getting married in a church (as we did by the way!)

Well stop beating yourself up and head over to my second home, the very fabulous Savvy Scoop for today’s ‘traditional meets rock n roll’ guest post.

Be Inspired

Happy Monday people!  There are a lot of very exciting things happening at Rock n Roll Bride HQ this week starting with my very first guest blogger. This week – today, Wednesday and Friday, I will be featuring some gorgeous Rock n Roll inspiration boards from the fabulous Emily from Peach & Pearl, designed especially for us.

Also, while I’m at it, a quick reminder that you have 2 days left to get me your final entries for the free wedding photography contest.  We have had some absolutely aaaamazing entries so far and it is proving very difficult to choose the winners!  The winners will be notified sometime this week! woohoo

OK, so on with the inspiration..take it away Emily!

I’m thrilled to be here this week!  I post an inspiration board every Monday on Peach & Pearl, and when I was invited on to guest post, I thought it would be fun to try and combine Kat’s style (in her words: “pink, tattoos, monochrome, vintage, the Wizard of Oz, and brightly colored stuff”) with my more classic and sweet style.  It was a fabulous challenge and I hope you’ll enjoy the results!Ngoc Minh Ngo) in the top left corner.  From there, I put the bride in a bright royal blue dress and the groom in a slim-fitting white dinner jacket.  The slightly-Spanish vibe comes through in the citrus centerpieces, the fruity drinks, and the bright linens – with those colors popping on your tables, what other decor do you need?  Hang cut paper garlands in doorways and line outdoor walkways and ledges with tealights or punched luminarias to create inexpensive atmosphere.

Mist.

Woohooo it’s the weekend, and I’ve got a gorgeous destination wedding to share with you first up.  It’s raining here in Blighty so where better to start than will a super sunny wedding in Bali?

I’m not usually one for too much sun (yep, never satisfied – it’s either too hot or too cold!) but these photographs are just stunning. I love the misty, magical feel to them – gorgeous.

Encarnacion

I am super excited to be the first ever wedding blog to feature the work of Encarnacion Photography!  Joannathan (i.e. Joanne & Jonathan) a husband and wife team, sent me this wedding, knowing full well I wouldn’t be able to restrain myself (in a purely blogging fashion you understand!)

A Groom in vans – rockin’ it with his boys,  a Bride with awesome tattoos and a wedding that looks liked such fun it makes me wish I was there – how could I possibly resist!?
I am also a little bit in love with the Bridesmaid dresses from Bay Area Bridal.

Thanks so much for sending these my way Joannathan – I look forward to seeing much more of your stuff!
