For some men, their wedding is the first time they will ever wear a tuxedo. With so many styles to choose from, how do you choose a tuxedo to suit you?

There are small differences in style that can make a tremendous difference on his appearance. Your groom will need to familiarize himself with all the different options. This might sound more complicated than it is, and that’s why we’ve asked Menguin to provide this easy-to-follow guide.

HOW TO STYLE A MOROCCAN BEACH BOHO WEDDING

HOW TO STYLE A MOROCCAN BOHO BEACH WEDDING (3)

In case your new around here, we love to share how easy it is to create a wedding day that is completely unique to you. We love nothing more than to share our DIY’s and inspire you with our brides’ real life weddings, but when it comes to styled shoots, we are always asked…

‘How can we recreate the looks that are featured in your styled shoots?’.

Sound familiar?

Well we kind of felt the same way? We knew how much you guys love to take inspiration from the awesome shoots that we shared but we also knew just sharing images wasn’t as helpful as it could have been.

We are always trying to think of ways to make all our posts useful to you, which is why from now on, we will be sharing our tips and advice on how to ‘get the look’ whenever we feature a styled shoot.

So, today we are going to start with our 5 simple tips for styling one of our favourite wedding trends – boho! It’s not surprising that bohemian style has become a popular theme for weddings. It is incredibly versatile and can be incorporated in many ways, whether your looking to create a theme that’s vibrant and bold or more natural and chill, boho style can be made to work for you. For today’s post however, we chose to go with lots of colour, because #whynot?

FIRST UP, CHOOSE BOLD COLOURS…

It might sound scary but when creating a colourful bohemian theme, you can never have too much! Is anyone else with me here!?

If you find yourself becoming a little overwhelmed at the thought of using ‘all the colours’, here is some advice on choosing a ‘colour scheme’

What are your favourite colours? It might sound super obvious but its usually a good place to start. If you’re currently trying to think of three of your favourite colours that go well together, STOP! Just pick the first three colours that come to mind, they don’t need to match!

I hear so many people say that don’t want to overdo it but trust me, with a Moroccan boho beach theme that just ain’t gonna happen!

Once you have chosen your core colours you can then go about adding touches of other colours elsewhere when and if the mood takes you.

Using colour is about giving yourself the freedom to choose whatever colour scheme you want without having to worry about whether everything matches – which if you ask me seems like a pretty stress-less way to pick a colour theme.

THEN, ADD TEXTURE

Adding different textures is an effective way to achieve that effortless bohemian style – You really can’g go wrong!

Try layering mismatched rugs, cushions and throws, use a runner to create a unique backdrop and add texture to your place settings by using mismatched plates and napkins in variety of colours and prints.

By layering just a few different materials and patterns your theme can quickly turn boho chic.

If you find yourself swamped with too many areas to style, focus on just one or two key locations, ideally those where your guests will spend a greater deal of time.

So, instead of trying to decorate everything, go deep in just one or two main areas, where your efforts will make the most impact. You could create a statement altar at the end of the aisle, which will be your guests main area of focus minutes before you make your entrance or use these tips to style your table decor, where guests can admire your displays whilst they eat, drink and get merry!

This means maximum impact on your guests and less work for you – bonus!

SEAT YOUR GUESTS ON THE FLOOR

No I haven’t gone crazy! Seriously! Use low tables, do away with chairs and use rugs and cushions as something for your guests to sit on!

Don’t worry you can still use normal table and chairs for eating off! This seating arrangement would probably be a little impractical for a full on sit down meal. However, it would make a great chill out area for your guests to sit and relax when they’re all danced out!

DIY Heart Lollipop Piñata for Valentines Day party fun pinata tutorial-10

So it’s one week to go until Valentines Day and we’ve still got some super cute DIYs to share to with you for the big day! Today we’re welcoming Patricia from Hello Eventos to the blog, she’s going to be sharing with you how you can make this ridiculously cute heart lollipop piñata! So without further ado, over to you Patricia…

DIY Heart Lollipop Piñata for Valentines Day party fun pinata tutorial-11

Hey! I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Patricia and I’m a party stylist and blogger at Hello Eventos in Spain. Let me tell you that I’m super glad to be on Bespoke Bride today and even more for a Valentines Day DIY piñata! As a party lover, I’m crazy for the day that we celebrate LOVE and every year I do something special for my valentine. This year I was thinking of creating a piñata and what’s better than a heart lollipop?! Heart lollipops are one of my favorite treats. I filled the piñata with lots of them and can’t wait to open it back up and share all of the candy! Let’s do it!

YOU WILL NEED:

Cardboard (I upcycled a big box from a delivery) // A cardboard tube // Red and white crepe paper // Scissors // Glue gun // Treats and confetti // Rope or lace //

STEP 1:

First we need to shape the heart so cut 2 cardboard hearts and 2 stripes out of your cardboard.

STEP 2:

Hot glue the stripes to the first heart. Leave 10cm of the bottom end of one of the stripes without glue because this will be the door way for the candies. Next, hot glue the second half on top.

STEP 3:

Using your glue gun, adhere the cardboard tube to the bottom of the heart then cut the word LOVE out of the cardboard. Fix the rope or lace to the inside of the door way and attach the word LOVE at the end of the rope.

diy-glitter-ice-bucket-christmas-gold-metallic-confetti-bronze-copper-centrepiece-wine-cooler-champagne-1

If you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride since August you would have seen the beautiful Confetti Bucket DIY in collab with Shropshire Petals! I absolutely adored making that ice bucket and loved the way it turned out so much that I wanted to try and recreate one with a Christmas spin! An ice bucket that would be the perfect centre piece for any table and really show off the glitz and glam of Christmas! This year, in our house, the festive theme is metallics so I really wanted my ice bucket to match and include lots of golds, coppers and bronze shades! Let’s get going shall we?

diy-glitter-ice-bucket-christmas-gold-metallic-confetti-bronze-copper-centrepiece-wine-cooler-champagne-6

YOU WILL NEED:

Metallic confetti (I went for gold stars) // Crystal type confetti // Glitter // Tinsel // 1 large bucket // 1 smaller bucket (it needs to fit inside the large bucket but also be big enough to hold a bottle) // stones //

STEP 1:

Take your large bucket and fill it with 2-3 inches of water then pop in the freezer and allow to freeze.

diy-glitter-ice-bucket-christmas-gold-metallic-confetti-bronze-copper-centrepiece-wine-cooler-champagne-5 diy-glitter-ice-bucket-christmas-gold-metallic-confetti-bronze-copper-centrepiece-wine-cooler-champagne-15

STEP 2:

Next, grab the smaller bucket and place inside the larger one then weigh it down with stones to ensure it doesn’t float when we add in the extra water!

STEP 3:

Add another 2 inches of water to the bucket next and sprinkle in some glitter, then allow to freeze.

DIY SNOW GLOBE FAVOURS

diy-flamingo-snow-globes-4

If you’re having a festive shindig and want to create some fun favours to match then why not make your own snow globes that each of your guests can take home? They couldn’t be easier to make and would look super pretty on all the tables! We’ve used flamingos in ours but you could add whatever plastic animals you can find. Unicorn snow globes would be equally as amazing!

Also, if you’re eyeing up that gorgeous sequin tablecloth in the photos it’s from Pudding Bridge! SO pretty right?!

diy-flamingo-snow-globes-7 diy-flamingo-snow-globes-5

YOU WILL NEED:

Jars // Super Glue // Glycerin // Plastic flamingos (or other plastic animals!) // Glitter // Sequins // Small disco balls or other embellishments // White tack (optional)

STEP 1:

Firstly you’ll want to glue your flamingos to the inside of the lid of your jar, along with any other decorative items you want to pop in there. We added in small disco balls and silver stars to a few of ours! We also decided to add a little white tack in first just to give the flamingos more height but this is completely optional.

diy-flamingo-snow-globes-1

STEP 2:

Add half a teaspoon of glitter, half a teaspoon of sequins and half a teaspoon of glycerin to your jar. Obvs add more glitter and sequins if you want, you can never have too much glitter!
