Vote for me?

A few weeks ago I entered a competition on Polka Dot Bride to win a Henry Roth wedding dress – and the voting has just begun! The entry involved something that I’ve been doing a lot of anyway – making an inspiration board for my wedding! Pulling back my ideas to a chic city wedding […]

On Cake

How awesome is this photo from the “Shoot the Chef” photography competition? The woman is a pastry chef, chocolatier and champion kickboxer, and is thus my hero. The Boy and I were planning to do a little cake testing whilst in Perth, but with everything going on we only made it to one place – […]

Total Bridesmaid Mismatch

I took this photo at Floriade today, and I’m sort of enamoured with the colours. Obviously they’re a bit strong and girly on their own, but used sparingly with some white/cream/beige/brown/grey neutrals I think it could look really pretty. I’ve looking at bridal party photos recently, and after seeing a few I’ve decided that having […]

Lazy

In light of my engagement invites (you can tell I’m pretty damn pleased with myself, can’t you?) I’ve decided on my philosophy towards planning our wedding: being lazy(ish). Or, to expand: minimum cost minimum effort (unless the task is something really fun!) maximum impact In the context of invitations for example, getting someone else to […]

Pink Lemonade

Um. So yes, I’ve changed my mind on colours again. And it probably won’t be the last time. But anyway, I call this one “Pink Lemonade Happy Funfun Awesome Times”, and it is fairly similar to the last mood board that I posted with the addition of a delicious watermelon pink. Despite being one of […]

My fabulous Chick of Honour (who shall henceforth be referred to as Miss T) and another good friend did some venue recon for me over the weekend, and today I got to see the videos and photos they took! The venue in question is The Forrest Centre Reception Centre, which looks pretty good from the […]

More on Food

So in response to my request for a tapas style meal, favourite venue of the moment has suggested serving a variety of cocktail items. It sounds like a good idea, and the suggested number of items brings the food costs to nicely under budget. But I’m a little unconvinced that canapes will be enough food. […]

Social food

I think it was when we were driving around the Swan Valley looking at possible venues that we decided we wanted a tapas style wedding reception. Neither of us are a fan of buffets, and while there’s nothing wrong with the typical soup – chicken/beef/fish – dessert three course meal, it does get a little […]

Inspiration Board: Singin’ in the Rain

Okay, so I’ve been assured that the guest list situation has been exaggerated, and am at peace with possibly having a slightly-on-the-largeish side wedding. Back to ideas. After watching ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ on DVD and at an amateur theatre last weekend with The Boy, I was inspired to consider a wedding that doesn’t fear […]

Inspiration Board: Seafoam and Lemon

Second shot at doing an inspiration board! Following on from my last colours post, I wanted to try something with a subtle greeny-blue with bright pops of yellow, for a (hopefully?) balanced and elegant but still fun look.
