Zoe and Perry’s wedding was a minimal budget, maximum happiness kinda day. They created a laid back, fun, bohemian day with loads of cute, cheerful decor that was entirely ‘Zoe and Perry themed’, and overall they only spent about £300 in their own money, with the rest coming from donations and contributions from their pals.
“My inspiration was to create our wedding with what I already had”, Zoe began. “The idea of making something from unsuspecting cheap materials and charity shops was great for us – I do love a project! It was simple, bohemian, unconventional and very us.”
Having originally begun wedding planning five years ago, before Perry was in a bad accident, their perspective on the wedding industry, and getting married, had totally shifted. ‘We know that if we got married when we originally planned to it wouldn’t have been the wedding we wanted and it would have ruined us financially and emotionally. We did lose money cancelling but looking back feel like we gained a good insight into what could have been.”
There is so much to love about Roxanne and Andrew’s wedding and although they got married in June, the witchy theme, which included tarot and crystal elements to the decorations, makes it perfect to share at this time of year! One of the things I love the absolute most about this wedding is how paired back and minimal everything is – less is more and all that! This gorgeous celebration proves that you don’t have to go completely overboard with the decor and theme to still have a fantastic looking event.
“We were inspired by our personal aesthetic and interests”, began the bride. They also wanted the day – well, weekend – to be laid back and enjoyable for their guests so they invited their closest friends and relatives stayed at the cabin, where the wedding was held, all weekend.
Ivy and Nate wanted their wedding day to be a party focused on good music, good food and even better drinks; a brief they absolutely SMASHED. Their wedding was held at the beautiful and ornate The American in Kansas City and it just keeps getting cooler from there.
They had decided not to have a ceremony on that day, opting instead of a private one at their house on a later date. This meant that Ivy and Nate got ready together with family and friends, “It was really nice because we experienced every part of the day together,” Ivy explains. “I know everyone says this but the day goes by so fast, so spend as much time together as you can.”
Ivy and Nate look like total bad asses in their wedding outfits, with Ivy wearing a Giambattista Valli dress she bought from Net-A-Porter. “I was out of town a lot in the build up to the wedding and just never made the time to go and try on dresses with family and friends. In the end, I did a lot of looking on wedding blogs to find my dress – I bought four, and ended up keeping this one.”
Nate wore a custom made suit from Manuel Couture, from Nashville. “Manuel has made suits for countless celebrities, and I think Nate was most excited about owning a Manuel suit!”
