Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook will know I’ve had a rough few days of late. I’ve been letting things (or should I say certain people!) get to me and it must stop! Arrgh… so I apologise for that right now. However, in a much more positive vein, I am very excited to get going with this week’s Thursday Treats as it always cheers me to share such internet wonderfulness with you all, my dear readers and loyal fans 😛

♥ First off – erm..hello? How fabulous are the photos at the top of this post? It was taken by the amazingly fun, cool, quirky and chatty Leah McCormick who I was lucky enough to meet on a cold day in London just before Christmas. I took her for a walk around Soho and down Carnaby Street where she went nuts over the Christmas decorations. Well they are pretty gorgeous aren’t they?
10 of the weirdest wedding invitations – I think they’re all pretty damn cool actually!
♥ Eeek! My Vintage Boudoir shoot from Julia Boggio is almost ready to share! Julia just send me a little teaser…man she’s naughty, now I’m even more excited to see them! How awesome are these going to be huh?

Well my dears, 2009 had been pretty damn awesome in Rock n Roll Bride Land and if you haven’t yet then you totally have to check out my yearly review – part one and two –  my favourite features of the past 12 months. “But what about the past 7 days!?” I hear you cry. “What have I missed whist I was opening my pressies, eating too much food and spending an untoward amount of time with my family?”‘ Well don’t fret my loves, although blog-land has been a little on the slower side I’ve still been here, scouring the interwebs to bring you the best of the Christmas week’s internet fun.

Barefoot & Beautiful

Yeah so I’ve gone a little nuts with this post. Sixty four photographs may be a lot to share in one bumper go, but once you lay eyes on these I know you’re going to allow it!

Chad & Christine, what can I say? The super stylish pair had a fabulous eco wedding at the end of October at Lake Oak Meadows. The bride wore a Sue Wong dress which she bought from Saks and both she and her groom had wooden rings made by Gustav Reyes which of course complimented their rustic, eco, hippy-chic theme to a tee. The bridesmaids all chose their own dresses from David’s Bridal and the boys wore suits from Men’s Warehouse

Joy.

I have a lot of love for these images. The mish-mash of Vera Wang, flower covered modern invitations, blood red florals, croque en bouche (cake!) and the music makes me a rather happy girlie

Mucho gracias to photographer Lisa for sending this little bit of joy to my inbox today.

A Colourful Mess

I’d just like to start by saying those were the Bride’s words not mine but I like it so I stole it. They started off with wanting a 1920’s theme but once they fell in love with their bright Bridesmaid dressed they knew that was out the window. The theme then morphed to ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ but ended up as ‘whatever the hell was want!’ I like that theme..screw being constrained by any kinda rules!

A few more awesome tips and ideas from the couple…
We made all our paper stuffs – the invitations, programs, placecards, table numbers and photocards. We did everything on a modest budget and still got stuff we wanted. I love my dress – I found it on sale, in perfect condition. Joe picked out his tux on his own and we found a matching fedora for the reception. Our cake topper was custom made to look just like is by Naked Peggies on Etsy. We also picked very random songs to play during the reception. Hardly anyone knew what they were, but we loved them. It kept us dancing the whole night!

And possibly my favourite fact about this wedding…
Did I mention that although we were engaged for over a year, everything changed about 6 weeks out, so we did pretty much everything in a very short period of time? No, well, we did! We were really go-with-the-flow, whatever happens, happens and we didn’t really care about a lot of the details.We didn’t do centerpieces, we had chocolate suckers as favors, and we really didn’t care what anyone wore. It was a very low-key crazy-colorfest!

Methinks we can all learn a lot from this crazy couple..I totally heart them. Thanks Susan & Joe for not only sharing, but proving that stressing about having the ‘perfect’ wedding just doesn’t matter!

Paint It

Wow…the photographs by the fabulous Kelty of Steep Street Photography for Hannah & Alex’s stag/hen/bachelor/ette parties are so ridiculously rock n roll (you may have seen this couple’s engagement shoot elsewhere – I heart it). Acrylic paint + simple white dress + dancing = a hell lotta rock and a hell lotta roll. Jeez is their wedding going to be the coolest or what?!

Thanks Kelty – these are beyond amazingly cool.
