Game of Thrones Wedding Inspiration

Although I have never watched an episode of Games of Thrones (does this make me un-cool?), I do know that it has inspired many of the latest fashions on the runway right now. So of course it has also became a trend in the wedding industry as well.

Here are some ideas I found to achieve this medieval look! The attention to details are amazing. A wedding like this would be so much fun to attend as a guest.

 

 

Help with Grooms’ Attire

Choosing men’s clothing for a special event can be easy for some men who may be used to getting dressed up for work every day but for some men this is the first time they have ever had to step into the world of suits, tuxes, and vests.

There didn’t use to be so many options in attire for men on their wedding day, but thankfully now you have many. These days you can find attire for your significant style and wedding.

As with women’s fashion for weddings, always consider the type of wedding you’re having. Wearing tuxes at an outside barn venue will have you looking out of place. However, a cute suit or vest and dress pants will still have you looking like the groom and will fit in with your celebration. Also what is your partner wearing? You want to compliment each other, and I would also take into consideration the time of day your wedding is taking place.

Grooms are no longer just an afterthought in the world of wedding attire, they too get to show off their unique style on their wedding days!

I put together some ( Eye Candy) ideas together of grooms attire, to help give you some more ideas. Enjoy!!

Spring Wedding!

I don’t know about you but I need some sunshine and bright cheer to get away from this winter’s coldness! Here is a beautiful and bold combo of pink, tangerine, teal, and yellow to brighten up your day.

Bridal Hair Accessories

When you start picking out accessories don’t forget your hair! If you are looking for something to add a little fun to your hair then make sure you check these ideas out for inspiration. You can wear some of these with a veil or you can use these instead of one. If you want to keep it simple, but love the idea of adding something to your hair, maybe forgo the earrings or necklace and let your hair be the statement.

 

Wonderstruck Music

Lauren Hanna owns Wonderstruck Music. She is an extremely talented composer and has been featured in films and TV shows.

Lauren has a wonderful company that will allow you to have a one of a kind song composed for your special day.

With some simple steps she will create a song just for you. Each song is 3-6 minutes, you get to pick the type of music like country, jazz, or salsa, then if you would like certain instruments she can add that as well. You can also either add your own lyrics or tell her what you are trying to say and she will write the lyrics. Then she will send you the sheet music for you to have.

A favorite wedding of mine from the past is when a groom walked down the aisle playing the guitar with a song he wrote for his bride, then he serenaded her as she walked down the aisle to him. It was a beautiful and special moment that you can also have on your special day.

The cost for this is anywhere from $150- $750 depending on the length of the song and how many instruments that you want included in the sheet music.

Pinterest Inspiration: How to bring a Homey Feeling to a Garden Wedding

Making a wedding have that homey feeling is letting your guests see a comfortable side of you. By adding small details into your décor you can make that happen! One of my favorite weddings from last year was one we did at a outside venue and the couple rented antique lounge furniture to create small outside rooms at the reception. It was super cute and the pictures were amazing!

Bridal Hair

Have you chosen your bridal hair? When you go to your trials your hairstylist is going to want to see your ideas, including things you don’t like! I created a Pinterest Board of some cute hairstyles. I am sure a lot of you have done the same! Happy Pinning.

At Home Dress Parties

You never know where you are going to see something that is interesting for our couples and today I found it on Good Morning America.

At-home parties are a fun way to get a group of friends together and have some fun. You see jewelry parties, makeup, Tupperware, food, wine, and those famous Pure Romance parties! But now you can even find your wedding dress at one.

Kirstie Kelly, who is an amazing dress designer, has created a service called Borrow Me at www.kirstiekelly.com where you can borrow dresses for $35, which includes shipping a dress, and have them delivered to your home. You then get to try them on from the comfort of your own home with all your loved ones around you. 

Within one week from placing your order you will have your gowns ready for your party. You also get a consultant online that you can ask questions to while you are trying them on. After you receive your dresses you have 48 hours to return them.

You can also try bridesmaid dresses. If you find your dream dress you can buy it straight from their website which will take 12-14 weeks for your dress to be made and shipped to you.

I love this idea and the dresses that she has designed are gorgeous. The price for her dresses are anywhere between $400-$5000. So they are good for all budgets. If you are looking for THE dress or just want to have a girls night and try on some dresses make sure you check Kirstie Kelly’s gowns out!
