I just really, really wanted you guys to see this outfit. When Jenny married Jake in Georgia last April, she paired a simple button-down shirt with a voluminous, white, ballgown skirt. And doesn't she look incredible? But, but, BUT — *dances with glee* — this is the shirt Jenny wore on her first date with Jake! IIIIIIIIIII KNOW. She topped it all off with a pearl necklace, a large bracelet, and some cute ankle boots. Well done, Jenny. Judging by the last couple photos here, you know you rocked this look.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of paper flowers posts.
Are you endeavoring to make your own flowers for your wedding? Well then, you must be nuts. I myself am in that same boat. I've scoured the internet looking for coffee filter flower tutorials. I've found some good ones, and I've sort of combined them all into my own method. Let me tell you how I made these, because I've made about 24,145 of them, and I want you to join me in madness. Here we go…
I love flowers and definitely wanted to have something to carry to our ceremony, but my flowers had to survive a road trip from Seattle to Moab, the desert environment, a trip back, and still had to look good a month later at our reception! That's a tall order for a bouquet. I ended up inventing my own method for making paper flowers…
This post has brides jumping into the Gulf of Mexico in tutus. But resist the temptation to scroll right to the end! Kristin and Kristine's Key West wedding last October had a lot more awesomeness that you need to see.
If you're in the mood for GIANT crepe paper flower bouquets, a sweet and impromptu first look, and a couple super obviously and deliriously in love, then this wedding is your jam. Oh, and this bride's experience with a day-of coordinator (who we know well!), is invaluable. And you'll love the song that they kind-sorta accidentally danced to for their first dance!
Turkey legs, jousts, games, wench-y corsets, and a golden rose ceremony: sounds like a Renaissance festival wedding for the ages. And then add in the blessing from the king and queen, the adorable mini-chapel, and the tree-climbing uncle-with-a-camera, and you've got a wedding that'll melt any garb-wearing Renny around.
This wedding is a pretty easy sell: they had a BEER UNICORN! And vodka slushies! And ocotopus and mustache dresses! And tentacle fingers! And animal centerpieces! And the Cliffs of Insanity! We're dropping-our-pants-happy about this Texas-meets-Ireland wedding. It's too much — go on without us and enjoy!
Paper flowers, local friendors, and a love for their hometown make this wedding hit home. Plus, this bride took two vintage dresses and made her own dove grey dream dress with 70 years of history. And we will all learn at least one thing from this wedding: keep the dance floor splits to a minimum or face the crotch consequences!
We previewed this couple's AMAZING neon bicycle part centerpieces before, but little did we know that we'd also get to see an acrobatic silks performance, an amazingly visual contrast with the venue (that we love!), and even more photos of the centerpiece works of art! Come look and see the neon splendor!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a vintage dress, a huge homemade Dalek (and mini flower girl Dalek!), and a wedding guide made for us to "not panic!" It's a sci-fi wedding… so say us all!
The Day of the Doctor is coming in honor of Doctor Who's 50th anniversary. What better way to relish one of our fave fandoms than to have a Doctor Who theme week? Today we've got a pair with a penchant for books, comics, and of course, the 10th Doctor! The groom even wore his signature suit. They both wore Chucks, carried Sonic Screwdrivers, and had a lovely handfasting to boot.
