DIY’S TRIED & TESTED BY YOU (+READERS PHOTOS)

Did you know that since the launch of Bespoke Bride in 2011 we have created over 300 DIY’s? Now, that’s alot of time spent researching, designing and making but what really makes it all worth it. is when our readers share photos of their finished projects with us. Those of you that use Pinterest will have seen that their is now an option to mark a pin as ‘tried’, where you can also add comments and pictures of your creations. These can be difficult to spot and we do sometimes miss them which, is why we are now encouraging you to tag us using our hashtag (#BespokeBrideDIY) on Instagram.

However, don’t worry as not all projects are lost in the depths of Pinterest and we have been fortunate enough to save some of your amazing feedback which we would love to share with you today? Over time many of you have asked questions about the difficulty level of our DIY’s and how well the finished versions held up, so we thought you might find our readers experiences useful, starting with what they thought of our Beyonce Lyric Glasses.

WEEKEND WEDDING PLANNING: FINDING THE ONE!

Welcome back to our second edition of Weekend Wedding Planning. We hope you enjoyed last weeks links and found some helpful tips among my ramblings. This weekend we are heading to Carmarthenshire to celebrate the wedding of a our real bride reporter, to her beau, you might otherwise know them as Sophie & Gareth of Crown & Glory.

I realize its terribly unoriginal to comment on how quickly it has come around but it does really feel like just yesterday we were sharing their engagement story and ‘boom’ tomorrow is the wedding. I’m already second guessing myself as to whether or not 18 months is going to give us enough time to plan our destination wedding? But then I remind myself of how Merari & Fernando planned an intimate ceremony in Tree People Park in just 12 weeks and of Maren & Jon who planned their colourful Las Vegas wedding in just 10! It’s these stories that remind me of why we chose a destination wedding in the first place, to keep it simple and relaxed so I really should just stop with the fretting already!

This week has been fairly quiet on the wedding planning front, I’ve mainly just been showing photos of our wedding ceremony location to Mr T and informing our family and friends of our plans. However there was one exciting thing that I did this week and that was to start looking for wedding dresses and I mean really looking.

A SCRUMPTIOUSLY SWEET MOD INSPIRED ICE CREAM BRIDAL SHOWER

Stylist Kristin Rapisardi of Lustre Theory is blowing our minds right now with her version of a 60’s Mod ice cream bridal shower! The fact that it combines amazing colors, macaron ice cream sandwiches and everyone’s favorite vintage era, equals only one thing? Pure magic of course with a cherry on top!

Kristin used color to define this classic look. Bright, bold color is splayed in geometric patterns and vintage influence and focuses on color blocking, hints of bright yellow, orange, pink, and pastels.

Not wanting to copy the well known Twiggy style, the team added a more playful approach to makeup and the use of color. Different elements of the 60’s hair and makeup trends were chosen for the models, voluminous hair, lots of eyeliner and large bright accessories.

Scroll on through for tonnes of super sweet inspiration and even more details on how you could get this look for yourself…
