A New Orleans Second Line Wedding Parade: Samantha & Daniel

Have you ever been to a carnival or parade and wished your wedding could be exactly the same? Well that is exactly what happened to Samantha and Daniel when they stumbled across a traditional second line parade in New Orleans. The excitement of marching through the streets with their guests and a jazz band was exactly the type of ‘wow’ factor that they were looking for to say thankyou to all their friends and family that made the long journey to celebrate with them in New Orleans. Samantha had the perfect mix of DIY mixed in with a few splurge items such as a live oil painter, who worked in each of the wedding guests into a painting that the couple now hang in their home, whilst her mum helped create a handmade brooch bouquet made up of family heirlooms.

Samantha and Daniel are the just the cutest, I can’t wait to for you to see all their gorgeous details!!!


Introducing Aunties Vintage China and her Heirloom Bouquets

This afternoon we would like to share a unique idea from Aunties Vintage China. Sue has designed some wonderfully unusual bouquets that are truly unique, something we at Bespoke Bride embrace fully. Sue is the founder of Aunties Vintage China so it is only right that we let her tell you a little bit about it…

Brooch bouquets are for keeps! “Aunties” will create a bespoke bouquet for you that can be customised with sentimental pieces e.g. a brooch or ring from a much loved relative or thistles if you are from Scotland. The bouquet becomes an heirloom piece which may be handed down from generation to generation and is unique to you and your family. Prices depend on the amount of brooches used and the nature of the stones and metals included in the bouquet.
