Capetown's gorgeous scenery is the perfect backdrop for this sweet and intimate chapel wedding. You need to see this bride's necklace/shoulder jewelry AND the groom's adorable I'm-so-happy-to-marry-this-woman cheer or else our work isn't done. Our only regret is not being invited to their second ceremony in Zimbabwe!

The bride lives in black, so her dress totally had to incorporate the color. Add in her blue hair (her "something blue"), gorgeous black and white veil, their classic ride, and a tear-y groom, and you've got this gorgeous Aussie wedding with DIY details. Just wait until you see the groom at the beginning of the ceremony. Oh, and wait until you see how a five-year engagement helped them overcome a challenge.
We love this bride's black, lacy dress, the couple's totally stress-avoiding attitude, cake-cutting "grr" faces, and super awesome wedding party photo picnic idea. And for any of you dealing with hassles about losing weight for the wedding, this bride's rational and kick-ass method for dealing with it is a MUST-READ.
Put on your goggles and your neo-Victorian gear, because this is STEAMPUNK WEEK! Today we've got a Victorian-styled red rose wedding paired with a book theme and a red dress with a peacock train. We're talking a book cake, book pages bunting, a fabulous DIYed top hat, and all the vivid red you can handle.
We love us some rockabilly chic, and this wedding has got the goods. Classic cars, victory rolls, a tattoo-inspired cake, and a handmade black retro dress. Add in the wise-cracking brother who walked the bride down the aisle and some sweet family memorial photos, and you've got the recipe for a family-focused good time.
This pair of rockabillies wanted to go all-out with retro style: record place settings, cake centerpieces with tattoo designs, pin-up and greaser stations (for timely coifs!), and a killer band. You have to see what the groom did at the reception to surprise the bride. Let's just say it involves Elvis. Oh, and I think the groom's "cake" will appeal to some of you.
We spied this most excellently dressed wedding party recently and were totally hoping to see the full wedding story. Thankfully, Kim and Cole obliged. Get ready for a seriously chic venue with their added DIY fabulousness (like a sweet DIY photo booth and wine cork chandelier!), and two of the most dapper-as-hell brides we've ever seen.
Ashley and Robert had that idea that they'd plan an authentic 1930s-styled garden party. The nail's head was hit so hard, the nail died. The affair was held at a 1907 Tudor mansion in Highland Park, CA, with a 1935 Packard sedan to deliver the bride. The groom and groomsmen wore 1930s-era morning attire with top hats, while the bridesmaids were clad in couture organza gowns created by Ashley's good friend and bridesmaid, Theresa Laquey. The bride's out-of-this-universe dress is actual 1930s vintage from eBay. To top it all off, the catering was based on actual recipes from a 1930s cookbook. Everything about this makes me want to blow my wig… blink my peepers… be dizzy with these dames… and basically blurt out a lot of 1930s slang.
A 1950s drive-in, a vintage candy buffet, Pink Ladies and T-Birds, and even a little heavy metal — why, it must be greased lighting! And you do not want to miss the major rumble that happened at the ceremony. Let's just say that it included "the man, the myth, and the legend" and the "baddest Catholic school teacher ever."
