Wedding Reception Inspiration

 I've been asked a few times to do some wedding moodboards and things like that to better show you my ideas and inspirations for my own big day.  So here is my first one...as I've said before the style or "theme" that I'm going for is very simple, understated elegance.  Small, delicate details like candles in glass jars, neutral colours and rustic elements are what my wedding will be all about.  If you'd like me to create similar moodboards for other aspects of my wedding like the ceremony/attire just let me know! :)

Today was the day that I sent out our Save-the-Dates!  At first I wasn't even going to do them...but after giving it some thought I decided that because our wedding is abroad it would be better to let our guests know the details ahead of time!  (The invitations go out next month).  So everyone received an email Save-the-Date with a link to our wedding website today, with all the information about the venue, location, hotels, airport, thing to do in the area...etc. etc.  For the meantime we've decided to keep our wedding website private as it's just for guest information at the moment but after the wedding we will be making it public and adding all of our own pictures.  I will link you guys up as soon as that's ready ;)  

I'm also really excited about our invitations because one of YOU is designing them!  Yes, that's right...one of my lovely subscribers/video watchers is making our wedding invitations!  Her name is Natalie and she's from Germany...she sent us two incredible handmade cards which both Jonathan and I were blown away by, so we asked her if she would like to design and create our wedding invitations and she accepted!  She has already done an amazing job.  I can't wait to show you guys!  

Stay Stylish!

  9. Sounds like the wedding is going to be perfect! I love that you're doing the majority of it yourself, makes it so much more personal :) Can't wait to see the results!

    Just discovered your blog and YouTube, I love them both!

  10. Very beautiful. I think it will look like a little Italian fairy-tale. Honey, I am not sure about your progress on a wedding cake (maybe I missed an update on this bit), but I've been thinking how much you like cupcakes and thought that, perhaps, you would want to have lots of cupcakes instead of a big cake?... You can go for 2 or 3 different flavours, say, vanilla, chocolate and coffee, but keep the icing the same or something like this. :)


    P.S. Liked your lil' dance at Tesco. I do the same when I buy something make-up'y or face care stuff (and my husband always commens on it the same way Jonathan did... :))) )

  11. Can't wait to see what she comes up with!! Love the jars with the hearts sticking out :)

  12. I love it, especially the photo in the tp right! If it's of any use to you, I did a wedding special on my blog about a two months ago. Come check it out when you have time.





  13. As for the cake,you could have a giant cupcake as the top tier and small cupcakes for the other tiers.there is a shop near the airport in cork,cork floral supplies and its great for ideas and other wedding related bits and pieces.love your blog

  14. Gorgeous<3 It's going to look amzing!:)
