Two off the beaten path posts in two days about two totally different wedding related anythings = perfection here! I love off the beaten path ideas for a wedding day because we all want to make our big day our own, and doing things a bit different is the best way to do just that.
So today, our own inspiration for a unique winter wedding! Normally we see lots of whites, plums, blacks, navy’s but today we’re going in a completely different direction… the red and aqua winter wedding! This is such a fun combination for the gutsy bride especially when used in the winter! I am loving the second photo… a mix of red, blush and aqua bridesmaids dresses (pick one or two of each color for the maids), and you can see how we took this one picture and explored the palette idea into the floral pieces, the paper, the food and the fun touches like, yep, you guessed it…macarons (first photo), and this adorable ring bearer pillow (last photo)!
The boot is back today on One to Wed! But since we’re in winter mode these days, today we’ve found some pretty, sexy, and super comfy winter wedding boot picks (and I threw in a pair of wintery shoes to spice things up)!
We’re all looking for ways to show off our amazing shoe collection in our daily wardrobe, a night out, and obviously our wedding day, so this is it! Honestly the sparkles, the something blue, or the really crazy hidden under your dress choices are always fun, but nothing beats a stylish boot for a winter wedding. So whether you’re doing a glam affair (check out the first and tenth photos), taking pictures in the snow (third and fifth photos), want to go a little vintage (sixth photo), or prefer taking the trendy bootlet route (seventh, eighth, ninth and last) these choices are sure to seduce you into choosing a fabulous wedding boot for your winter wedding… but hey, if not, that’s why we threw in that traditional heel…
As we make our way toward the holiday season, I have to get all of my non-holiday wedding musings out before we start our very first countdown to Christmas (wedding style)! So that means today, no season related wedding thoughts here… straight country style! In fact trending country style! Now I use “trend alert” lightly here because I realize that glorious wedding cowboy boots are not even close to a new trend and nowhere near going out of style… but in my world that means it’s still trending!
So today we’re going there.. examining wedding cowboy boots and how awesome they are! And this is coming from someone who normally lacks major country style! So why the cowboy boot as a part of your big day? Well for one I bet they’re more comfy than your 4 inch heel alternative. For two, they make really fun pictures, and for three, well they’re different right? You don’t have to be country to love this style because after all they are hidden… so here’s your chance to get crazy. Maybe even pick a loud color, vintage pattern or crazy design?
With my favorite season practically knocking the door down I get more excited everyday for tons of fabulously pretty winter wedding ideas. We already kicked off the winter season here a few weeks ago with a winter post here and there but when I heard Christmas music today in the drug store I practically died and went to winter wedding blogging heaven! So with one of my all-time favorite underused wedding topics, decisions, and unfortunately yes, blog posts too, I present lots of love for winter wedding boutonniere picks for your handsome groom and of course his dashing groomsmen.
So without too much blabbing on and on today, I’ll leave it to you visual lovers out there to just enjoy what you can do with the winter wedding floral palette. There are endless options and no it doesn’t have to be all red or green (although I’m definitely not opposed to the awesome red berries (first, third, last photos), or on the topic of berries, blueberries can work as well (ninth photo) but what I love most about the winter wedding boutonniere is that it’s a lovely way to express a little creativity for the groom and his men while adding a hint of winter charm without going overboard…
Now that we’re officially in November, I’m feeling like it’s acceptable for lots of winter posts so today we’ve founded some of the best in winter accessories… the gold clutch!
I love gold for weddings, especially in the winter. The color is regal and vibrant plus it goes with just about any palette! So for your winter wedding I’m thinking that the gold clutch is an absolute must!! Whether it’s a treat for yourself and you want to splurge (I know we all do it on wedding shoes so why not the wedding clutch as well) or if you’re looking to accessorize your maids with one signature piece (ie the gold clutch) then we’ve found loads of options for you! Some on the very expensive front, and others on the very budget-friendly front, but all perfect for a wedding day gift to yourself as the bride, or a gift for your bridesmaids!
For the bride, a few of the more expensive (but seriously fabulous options). From the mini, edgy limited edition Bottega Veneta (tenth photo), to the gorgeous Christian Louboutin classy gold (eighth photo) and finally the Miu Miu metallic gold leather from Net-a-Porter at $510 (last photo) these clutches are incredible accessories for the bride, especially if you are willing to splurge…
But because I know we can’t all spend hundreds on our bridesmaids gifts (or ourselves) we’ve managed to find some equally fab clutches on a way more reasonable budget! From Etsy seller Lost in Time, I love this incredible ivory gold brocade purse at only $65 (first photo) and another Etsy find from seller Salvage Life with a vintage 1950s glitter gold purse (twelfth photo). Like to shop at department stores? We found this gorgeous Tasha box clutch with metallic gold mesh from Nordstrom’s (ninth photo), and finally for our most budget-friendly gold clutch… stylish gold beading by Karen Marie at $44 (seventh photo).
