Fresh Summer Weddings

Hello again Real Brides,
I have been in hiding and no I didn’t quit on blogging, I just quit on blogging every day, because I have been engaged with real life, my job, enjoying my summer, my reborn city life and, of course, my husband.  We have been to a couple of lovely summer weddings this year and it just seems that right now in our lives everybody is getting hitched, so love is in the air.

The wedding trend for this year is sort of what I had expected so far.  Less rustic, more new.  What I wasn’t expecting is the cuteness and craftiness of it all.  So, in a nutshell, even better than what I expected.  What a wonderful time to be planning a wedding!

Today, before I head off to work, I have for you some delightful summer wedding inspirations, so enjoy!

Why do I love this piece? Because it makes the flavors of summer the centerpiece.

Wedding Wednesday: Creepy (in an awesome way!) Easter Wedding!

When I came across this couple’s wedding on Style Me Pretty, I just had to make an inspiration board out of it.  This couple is totally awesome, and they have to be to pull this off.  This wedding just totally reminds me of a mix between Alice in Wonderland and Donnie Darko. I just totally love weird things ❤

Calla Lilies: An Extravagant Centerpiece

I just love calla lilies.  To me they look so elegant with their long stems and their shape.  A very good choice to have as centerpieces because they can go in all kinds of vases.

Calla Lilies make an elegant bouquet as well.

Plus Size Gown of the Week

This strapless semi-cathedral train gown is just so beautiful and so I just had to put it on the blog this week.  It’s simple and gorgeous at the same time and just so classy looking.
