I simply had to share this beautiful wedding with you. It’s a writers dream come true. Darn it! It’s so beautiful I bet anyone would love to have their wedding in an old bookstore. Check out the brides style! A polka dot blouse and all those bangles! Who’d have thought it would all go so perfectly together? And did you notice her bouquet made out of book pages? Ahh… I’m loving this. (Via Powells)
I’m love with everything – the colour palette, style, location, flowers… Need I go on? There’s lots more take-your-breath-away photos here.
Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend with friends and family. We attended a belated birthday dinner for my cousin yesterday and had a blast. I just love catching up with family. The food was ahmaazzzing thanks to the lady behind Bread N Bakes, who also happens to be my cousin’s wife. Today I’m looking forward to relaxing at home. I’m planning to play some Christmas carols and sing along : ) But in the meantime, here are some fun links just for you. Enjoy…
1. This wedding is downright gorgeous. And that veil – ahh… I’m in love.
2. I haven’t found anything I love enough to have on my body permanently so this bow tattoo is a great option.
3. Have you seen anything cuter? These two are buds for life.
4. On the lookout for the perfect party dress? You gotta check this one out.
5. What a fantastic exhibition at the New York Public Library. Now if only I were there. Sigh.
PS. Don’t forget to sign up for the 30 Days of Giving Bootcamp. It starts tomorrow.
Oh my goodness! How dreamy are these engagement photos? The bride-to-be is a real-life ballerina. Isn’t it every girls dream to wear a tutu and lace up those points? I can only imagine how beautiful their wedding will be. What a gorgeous couple. I just had to share.
This got me dreaming… If I wore a tea length wedding gown, what kind of shoes would I choose? Yes, I think of random things like this. It’d be a toss up between these. What say you?
PS. Even Keira Knightley wore a short wedding dress.
Colourful wedding shoes were all the craze not too long ago. And now, it seems the trend has moved to colourful wedding dresses. What do you think? Would you forego the traditional white for something a little more bold and suited to your personality? Here are a few gorgeous dresses that might help you decide.
How about a feisty orange? I would have never thought an orange wedding dress could have worked but this bride proved me wrong. She looks absolutely lovely.
Something blue? We’ve got that covered.
And this dress makes me green with envy! How beautiful is this?
Sparkly metallic? Yes yes yes!
… Or gold…
Black seems an odd choice but hey, you can make it work.
Colour is the norm at cultural weddings. Here are a few of my favourites.
Would you trade in a white dress for one with colour? And if white weren’t an option, which would you choose? I’d love to hear.
PS. If you love the idea of colour but still want to stick to white, maybe this will give you an idea – A Rainbow Wedding.

When we got married, I decided to forego wearing a veil. It’s not that I don’t think veils are gorgeous. No, no! On the contrary, I think there’s something utterly feminine and a little mysterious about wearing a veil. The choice not to wear one was simply because of our wedding location – it felt a little silly wearing a veil for a very modern wedding in an old club. Perhaps I would have picked a lovely delicate one if we were getting married in a church or a gorgeous garden.
These veils are so romantic. Would you wear one for your wedding day?
For an outdoor setting, you could choose to incorporate flowers with your veil. Perfect!
I think veils have come back in a big way! Which is your favourite?

I’ve been married for almost 3 years now. And let me just say, being married to your best friend is a dream.
Planning my wedding was one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve ever had. I don’t understand how some of my friends complaint about the hassle and stress of planning. They scream, “All those details, ideas, decisions – yuck!” But I say, “All those details, ideas, decisions – yay!”
So although my big day is over, I’m still fascinated by all things wedding related. Plus, my sister is not married yet and I’ve declared myself her wedding planner when the time comes. This means all that time spent oogling wedding blogs and magazines is not time wasted. No, no. It’s research.
Here’s a wedding theme I’m loving right now.
We can’t forget the all important dress. Two, in this case.
Or maybe just a pair of pretty gold shoes.
Also, for our dear bridesmaids.. which girl could say no to any of these glittering beauties?
And to top it off, a fabulous cake.
Perfecto! Don’t you think? Did you have a colour theme for your wedding, lovelies? I’d love to hear. I chose the classic black + white.
