Candy Buffet...

Today I thought I would take the time to go to a wholesalers to look for sweets for our candy buffet, but when I got there I freaked out and realised I had no idea what I wanted... Do I go one colour?
Do I go a couple of colours? Or do I go multicoloured?! arg! So I guess I am asking for some suggestions, most of you know the style and colours of my wedding (if not look here) and I am hoping that I will find some sort of inspiration/direction from your thoughts.

Look what I found today...

Remember this image... well I went on a mission to find myself two old white wooden chairs, for our signing table and look what I found.
I love them, although one of them needs a bit of strengthening because I think as soon as one of us sit on it, it will most likely collapse.. and wouldn't that make for interesting wedding photos!

Snow and Bows

Even though I'm rather an anti-winter/cold weather person, I do love the snow. Take a look at these engagement photos by Open Air Photography. How can you not love the snow when photos like these come out!

Another year, another birthday.

Well, today I'm 24.

It seems like only last year I was leaving home at 18 to study and suddenly six years have gone by! I've finished four years of study and got honours, I met the man who I will spend the rest of my life with, My mum passed away, I've gotten engaged, I've been to Melbourne and back to work, I been through three jobs in the past three years and I'm getting married in 7 weeks. It seems like I have been through a lifetime in the six fastest years of my life (not that I have really lived many years)!

So far I have had a wonderful day shopping, eating and relaxing with Jarrod and now we're listening to Jason Mraz' live album (such a great summer album) and about to open a bottle of South Australian Riesling and sit outside on my new outdoor setting. This is the life. I have it all, and I'm only 24.

Quirky box ideas..

I just posted about some unique branding and interior design over on quirky bird and posted this image which to me shouts out great inspiration for wedding favours or escort cards. You could collect different papers to match your colour theme and wrap up blocks of chocolates and as a little treat!

Save the date with scrabble...

Don't you hate finding brilliant ideas and thinking, why didn't i come up with that!? Well I am having one of those moments with these save the date images by He & She Photography. They capture such a fun and relaxed mood and you can tell their wedding is going to be the same! Can't wait for their wedding images to surface around blog world in the near future.

Bringing the inside out is a magical thing

Seeing as you all loved the idea of bringing a chaise lounge outside, I thought you would love this image. What a fabulous idea for the signing table! hmmm wonder if I will find some cheap second hand furniture on my weekend travels around the Port...

Wedding Style Guide

I will always sing Wedding Style Guide's praise. It is so great to see a wedding magazine that seeks to publish weddings that have personality and individuality. And it is great to see that they are not afraid to publish weddings and bits and pieces from around the US (seeing as they do lead the way in the wedding industry). So, I am off to buy the latest issue to see what goodies I can find!

Oh and in the last issue they did an article on wedding planners and why they come in handy and I noticed they didn't showcase any Adelaide wedding stylists/planners. Hopefully next time they run a similar article, Mary&Gabrielle (events) will be there!
