Greek Goddess Bride Style

Choosing your 'look' for your wedding day can be difficult, particularly if you're anything like me, and your normal look is pretty thrown together. With two wedding days to plan, I was lucky enough to try two different bridal styles, although both ended up pretty similar {hair up, hair down!}. Whether you're thinking sleek and sexy, or boho and feminine, consider this gorgeous Grecian bride style. With a simple bouquet of olive branches, and an elegant leafy crown, plus a divine Samuelle Couture wedding gown, you're good to go - no need even for shoes! Fabulous styling by Kelly Oshiro, incredible pictures by the lovely Jose Villa.

Wedding Trends of 2013 - Bushy Bride & Bridesmaid Bouquets

Now that the weather's turned, and we're firmly into autumn and wintery weddings, I wanted to tell you about a new eco-friendly trend sweeping the wedding world. It started with brides using seasonal flowers, rather than those flown in from abroad, and now it's taken a natural next step. Rather than use bright blooms, fashion-forward brides are choosing bushy bouquets of pure foliage. It's an elegant, green-goddess look, and it works perfectly with dramatic and detail-heavy wedding gowns, such as those by Jenny Packham, Temperley London and Samuelle Couture. Olive branches, bay bouquets and eucalyptus are popular, but I love the oak leaf look picture below. Lots more busy bouquet inspiration on my Pinterest page.

Before the Big Day Wedding Trends of 2013 - Bunchy Bridal Bouquets

There's a new trend for bridal bouquets for 2013, and the great news is they're super-easy to DIY! If you're not careful flowers can take a big chunk out of your wedding budget, particularly if you're planning to give your bridesmaids a bunch each.

One way to avoid this is to choose a single bloom for their bouquets, leaving more bang in your budget for your arrangement. But rather than pick a hand-tied bouquet, where every flower is carefully placed next to a different variety, 2013 is all about bunching blooms together {see the four pictures below}. Don't they look gorgeous, and seriously easy to DIY via this tutorial on wedding blog 100 Layer Cake.

Of course, you might prefer to go with 2012's big bridal bouquet trend, which still looks super-fresh this year, particularly for summer weddings. It's a more natural look with blooms pulled together in wild profusion. I'm particularly loving the bouquet on the left - how about you? More amazing bridal bouquet inspiration on my Pinterest board.

How To Choose Your Wedding Flowers

Choosing your wedding flowers can be a pretty tricky business; considering most people just send flowers and bouquets, without really knowing the names of any particular blooms. But thanks to Pinterest, I've stumbled across the best wedding flower guides E-V-E-R! It's all thanks to the amazing team over at The Wedding Chicks wedding blog. Along with Krista Jon, they've organised the most popular wedding flowers by colour palette, so you can impress your wedding florist with your knowledge. Of course, if you're getting married abroad {like I did}, then the pictures will help you enormously, although you could always consider international flower delivery instead! To enlarge the pictures below, just double click. More wedding flower guides here.

Wintery Star Wedding Bouquet

Frosty mornings have got me thinking about winter weddings! Take a look at this gorgeous winter wonderland snowflake bouquet. It's the perfect accessory for an ice queen bride, and a family heirloom in the making. Created out of three layers of frosted acrylic snowflakes, surrounded by crystal acrylic beads of 'ice', and tied with white satin ribbon, it's a fairytale wedding bouquet. Handmade by Etsy seller, Bridal Bouquets By Ky, it comes even comes with a complimentary boutonnière for your groom. Take a look at Ky's Etsy shop for more beautiful everlasting bouquets.
