While I love using trends to inspire my creativity, I especially love it when an unexpected source of inspiration comes my way, rather like today’s Valentine’s Day shoot, which all started with a black and white stripe gold leaf settee that needed a face lift.
I am all about printed dresses right now! Polka dot is usually my go to, but over the past few weeks I have sneaked a few floral prints into my wardrobe and I have my eye on one or two stripey ones, ready for my holidays next month. If you ask me bold prints are a must for every occasion which is why I was so excited to share today’s wedding with you, as these gorgeous bridesmaids are wearing the most stylish sequined black and white bridesmaids dresses. I am also absolutely obsessing over the decor and colours! This couple really went all out to make their day memorable, not just for themselves but for their guests too, with so much handmade memorabilia and pops of colour at every turn, what is their not to love!
I haven’t been to Paris since I was about 13 and even that was a drive through and onto Austria which means I can honestly say that I’ve never experienced that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ about Paris…but I sure as hell intend to! After all, it’s the city of romance right? And can you imagine getting married there?! Sheeeesh. It would be beautiful.
So what would a Paris themed wedding actually look like I hear you cry?! Well, you know that classic scene on Bridesmaids where the wedding shower is Paris themed? Yep. That’s what I’m picturing. Minus the best friend hissy fit though (obviously keep the pink lemonade…and maybe that chocolate fountain…)
