Maybe your looking for the non-flower bouquet?
This clever florist from Floral Verde, used a silver-blue\green foliage known as Silver Tree, to create an all green foliage bouquet. So bold and gorgeous, don't you think? You could certainly make a statement carrying this single beautiful hand-crafted bloom down the aisle.
Would you ever choose just green and ixnay the floral? If so, what foliage would you choose?

Beautiful, vintage inspired hair accessories, all the way from Seville, Spain. As much as I adore the birdcage veil, I believe it's being replaced this season with the decorative headband.....
Cherubina makes some unique pieces that would make a nice alternative to a veil or even an addition, as seen in the second image.
 What accessory will you be wearing on your big day?

WEDDING DECOR: vintage flower vessel

 Love these vintage flower vessels.....
A little splurge for your tables but think about how much you will use them after the wedding, for all those fabulous dinner parties you and your hubs with throw.........

WEDDING STYLE: little black dress

I'm not a big fan of matching the dress to a T for the bridal party, so boring and so not a Little Winter Bride style. Mix it up! But if you really can't stray away from the traditional idea of matching dresses, why not ask your bridal party to stick to one color or palette of colors of your liking but allow them to choose their own silhouette. Preferably something that suits their figure and price range? I know it's the bride and grooms day to shine but I think that it's sweet to make those special peeps around you shine as well. I love the idea of the little black dress for your bridal party or as I like to say "witnesses". Everyone needs a little black dress in their closet, plus it makes for a super chic choice, with a wide range of styles and they WILL wear it again.....

Decor: hanging plants & flowers

Who says your flower arrangements have to be on the table?
How about these unique upside-down planters from Poketo for extra touch of greenery to your wedding decor?  There are never ending decor possibilities with  these babies.
What plant do you envision in these sky planters? I would like to see the delicate maidenhair fern falling from the ceiling.

Real Wedding: Richard and Sanchia

Today, we are virtually heading over to Cape Town, South Africa, to take a look at the sweet civil ceremony of Richard and Sanchia. This intimate ceremony, took place in the bride's aunts garden, surrounded by 20 guests in the afternoon light. I love the light heart feeling I get when looking at these beautiful images. So sweet and charming,  photographed by the talented, ChloĆ© Browne, of Caught the Light. And what a stylish couple! Really loving her blue dress! Clearly this is one creative little lady.......

newlyweds sharing a little giggle and affection.....they truly look like a fantastic couple....

Blue and purple, stunning choice for bride and groom's wedding attire
The vintage inspired dress, is from the Kate Moss line at Top Shop, perfectly paired with 1940's style platforms, which she cleverly dyed purple, and to top off this look, with none other, than classic red lips. Perfection. And not to mention, budget friendly.....

Guests celebrated with the lovebirds, sipped champagne and enjoyed a traditional South African BBQ known as a  "Braai"
The following week, the couple held their real ceremony celebration, on a mountainside in Hout Bay.
Two celebrations for this chic duo. How great is that?

Real Wedding: Nadia and James

I'm swooning over the wedding of Nadia and James, so romantic and sweet, filled with charming vintage style.  I love the voyeuristic feel and light in these photographs, captured by the talented, Tommy of This is Naive. Quite refreshing to see something different, don't you think?

The bride, Nadia, looks so elegant in her beautiful beaded vintage dress. And I adore, the extra touch of GORG with her ruffled shrug handmade by Holly Stalder.  Not to mention her 1920's hairstyle with stylish waves. Stunning but I'm not surprised, as this little lady, is the designer\creator behind the beautifully hand crafted, vintage inspired, London based clothing label, Nadinoo. So, I guess it's safe to say, this gal knows a thing or two about vintage style...

a fabulous guest dressed in feathers and fur ready for the wedding festivities...............

...............that took place at a quaint little house with greenery all around.......... adorable arrangement of paper whites, how darling!

Charming right?
I'm not sure what I love more, her 1920's hairstyle, her wedding attire or the enchanting location, I love it ALL
 little romantic weddings, I just can't get enough....sigh
