Real Mexican-Themed Colourful Wedding

Add a huge shot of colour to your wedding day with a Mexican theme. It's got to be one of the easiest wedding themes ever, and if you're happy to do a bit of DIY, it doesn't need to be expensive. I've fallen in love with Day and Max's gorgeous rehearsal dinner, designed by the hugely talented Lisa Vorce. Just check out the striking combo of yellow table cloths and red napkins, plus ribbons of every shade. Fill some old tin cans with daisies or tulips, add some fabulous tissue paper garlands and bunting, and you've got a fiesta made in heaven. Stunning pictures published with thanks to Aaron Delesie.

Real Outdoor Vineyard Wedding with a Peony Bouquet

I think I've died and gone to wedding-heaven. This incredible big day has made me want to get married all over again. In a vineyard. On a beautiful summer's day. With a fishtail plait. I had to go back and look at my own wedding pictures to stop myself feeling jealous. {Yes I'm that odd}. I'm featuring zillions of Our Labour of Love's shots, because I can't quite find the words to describe the golden gloriousness of every wedding detail. Let's just say my favourites are the personalised fan programmes, the ombre ruffled cake, the perfect font on their place markers, Athena's huge pink bouquet, her father's kilt, and the ribbon and lace table runners. It's perfection in a Tiffany box! P.S. Athena's a lovely name for a girl, isn't it?

A Real Casual South African Wedding: Liebe & Arnold

If you're a barefoot kind of bride, you're going to love this casual South African wedding. Lovely couple Liebe and Arnold celebrated their big day in the middle of nowhere - a properly rural oasis in the heart of the Overberg. I love the opulent, vintage feel of their wedding venue, a ranch called Halfaampieskraal. The exotic mirrors, chandeliers, urn-filled flower arrangements and blue chairs work perfectly with their carnival theme, and red star motif. I love Liebe's short wedding dress, and Arnold's shorts and braces combo - I think it's the first time I've seen a groom in shorts, and doesn't it work perfectly for a casual wedding! Other amazing stealworthy ideas include the celebratory ribbon wands, the bridesmaids ditsy-floral dresses and Liebe's wild tumbleweed wedding bouquet. Enjoy these gorgeous photographs by We Love Pictures - they're our favourite South African wedding photographers.

Real Jewel Coloured Wedding: Roni & Peleg

Sit down and prepare yourself for an inspirational overload. Believe me, it's enough to make you go weak at the knees. The lovely Roni and Peleg chose a gorgeous palette of purples, lilacs and royal blue. Throw in a touch of the softest pink, and you've got a wedding-style made in heaven. Other stealworthy ideas include the extravagant white-themed sweetie bar, the French macaroons and the beribboned chairs, and I'm l-o-v-i-n-g Roni's Romona Keveza mermaid dress. To copy this couple's style, consider using dark table cloths with white accessories for a dramatic evening look. Many thanks to Stephanie Williams for her smashing pictures, she's fantastic at spotting every detail - just what we like!

Real Quirky Floral Fan Wedding: Emily & Neil

There's something hugely original about this wedding, and although I don't know the couple personally, I'm pretty sure it reflected their quirky, creative, characters. Emily and Neil celebrated their big day in a garden on a day much warmer than today (although that wouldn't be hard, we're shivering in our boots today in London). Instead of flowers, Emily's bridesmaids carried fans, and instead of a diamond solitaire, Emily wore a giant cocktail ring. Their cake topper was a pair of cool bunnies in shades - like I said - original and quirky. Other details to copy include Emily's gorgeous layered dress and simple plaited hair, plus the beribboned maypoles - and check out the cool fonts they chose for their stationery. A multitude of thank you's to the team at Our Labor of Love for their gorgeous pics - I'm particularly loving the umbrella shot at the end - soooo old Hollywood glamour it hurts!

Real Monochrome Modern-Themed Wedding - Jenna & Mori

The bride's shoes are reason enough to blog this wedding! They're amazing winged numbers, and they make very happy. Jenna and Mori chose a mostly monochrome theme to their wedding, with flashes of orange and pink, and a typography motif. I'm loving the gorgeous guest book with raise letters and the personalised invitation suite. Other stealworthy ideas included the rosette buttonholes and the monochrome ribbon around Jenna's bouquet - both would be easy to DIY. The numbered water bottles are a fantastic way to name the tables, and I'm super-keen on the loaves of bread served on slate platters. Altogether a fabulous affair, pictured beautifully by Our Labour of Love.
