Eco-Conscious, Festival-Inspired Wedding Weekend with Rave Reception

When Jess and Chris decided to get married, they found that the place they drew inspiration from the most was seeing how other people had done things their own way. They chose elements that they had enjoyed from other weddings, and did away with traditions they felt had no meaning to them.

“We made every decision together and questioned everything ‘typical’,” Jess explained. “If we didn’t see the point of something, we didn’t do it, and we replaced it with something meaningful to us.” This meant switching an elaborate cake which no-one would eat for a bountiful buffet of local cheeses. They picked their flowers based on what was local and in season, and made blackberry whisky as their wedding favours as something that people would enjoy, rather than leave behind.

Rustic, Welsh Barn Wedding with Dashes of Disney

Aly and Dan knew they didn’t want anything too formal or traditional for their wedding, and have always loved a rustic vibe, so with Sugarloaf Barn in South Wales right on their doorstep, they didn’t have to go very far to find their perfect venue! Located in the beautiful Brecon Beacons, it was the perfect setting for their relaxed day.

As the barn is pretty much a blank canvas, the couple really enjoyed being able to put their own stamp on things with regards to decoration. They went in hard with the DIY; three days of prep in the lead up to the wedding, to be precise! They made hundreds of paper lanterns and pompoms to hang throughout the venue, covered it in fake flowers and fairy lights to make it completely their style. They even thought to make a little cosy corner for their guests to relax in, covering hay bales with blankets, cushions and glass jars filled with candles to create a laid back vibe.

Teal & Turquoise Vegan Wedding in Vegas

Claire and Alex love gaming. From board games to apps and video games, they’re always at it so this was the first thing they knew had to play (boom boom) a big part in their Vegas wedding. They hired retro arcade games and had giant board games for their guests to play at their reception.

“We play a lot of video games, apps and board games (and love the Circus Circus arcade!) so we themed our wedding around this”, said the bride “We made the invites and order of service ourselves as well as our wedding website, all with a gaming theme, which we’re pretty proud of.”

Affordable Alternative Wedding & Bridesmaid Dresses for Under £150: Rock n Roll Bride x Little Mistress is Here!

I’m going to cut right to the chase today because I KNOW you are just as excited as I am about this project! The Rock n Roll Bride wedding dress collection is now available at little-mistress.com – cue confetti cannons, popping champagne bottles and everyone screaming “Wooooooohooooooo!”

It’s funny, because when I was teasing you relentlessly about my book, so many of you guessed (and I suspect, hoped) that the project I was about to announce was a wedding dress collection. Obviously, I wasn’t allowed to say anything at the time and it was super hard for me not to say “NOT RIGHT NOW BUT SOON!!” to everyone that messaged me! I’m pretty terrible at keeping secrets after all.

So, let’s skip the formalities and crack the hell on shall we? I know you’re all just dying to see the dresses! This collection features five wedding gowns and five bridesmaid dresses (which I’ll be sharing here tomorrow but they are available to pre-order from today too!) Each dress is lovingly and ethically created in India and nothing is over £150!

When Sparks Fly: A Sparkly Meets Industrial Wedding… with Taco Trucks!

There were so many sparks on Dan and Annaliese’s first date that they decided to theme their wedding after them! “We were living about an hour apart at the time so that first date was a bit reluctant to be honest,” said Annaliese. “Although I thought Dan looked cute and funny, we both just thought the distance was a stumbling point. I jokingly said to a friend that I’d probably only go on one date with Dan, unless ’Sparks are showering the floor like a welding shop’.” Fortunately, that was exactly how she felt about that first date!

Grungy Las Vegas Dive Bar Wedding with the Bride in Black

Prepare thyself, because this may just be the ultimate Rock n Roll Bride wedding! A quickie Vegas ceremony, the bride rocking her baby pink quiff with a striking black wedding dress and a raucous after party that went on all night long! Oh yes, there is so much to love about this epic celebration (even if someone did break their leg in the process – oops!)

Claire and Joe were married in October. After their Little White Chapel ceremony they headed to The Peppermill for food and ReBar (a antique bar where everything is for sale!) for all the partying. After a few hours they then went and got tattoos done followed by karaoke at Dinos, the last neighbourhood bar in Vegas!
