WEEKEND WEDDING PLANNING: EEEEK! YOU’RE ENGAGED

Although I’m on a month long wedding planning ban, it doesn’t mean I can’t help you guys with your own plans this weekend.

It feels like soooooo long ago since I got engaged but I still remember it like it was yesterday. It will forever go down as one of the best days of my life and I will never forget it. This week, I got to relive a teeny tiny bit of that excitement as I found out that one of my best friends boyfriends was planning on proposing and he wanted me, to help him make it special. I had the job of helping him find an engagement ring and I can tell you, that I now have some idea of just how much pressure our other halves must feel when it comes to planning that perfect proposal.

WEEKEND WEDDING PLANNING: TAKE A BREAK

Perhaps it’s because I’ve never really planned a wedding before but damn is it a roller coaster! Sometimes I am so excited I wish it was yesterday, other days I am totally overwhelmed by how soon it is, when it’s really not soon at all! I am still stressing over this date thing, worrying myself…

WEEKEND WEDDING PLANNING: SIMPLE

Phew what a whirl wind these past few weeks have been, filled with hen parties & weddings. I have to admit, although it has all been very exciting, I am looking forward to a much more relaxed weekend. This week was very exciting for me as I preliminarily booked my favourite videographers in the whole wide world – Costa Sister Productions to come to Mexico to film our wedding. I am so so happy as having them their to film was one of the most important things to me. Unfortunately, I am still no closer with an actual date as the Cenote where we plan to get married has a strict 3 month booking rule, so we are having to get back in touch with them in the new year. Seriously guys I am on the edge of my seat here. I just want to get a date on that calendar!

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…
