Saturday. Saturday. Sat-ur-day.

Sorry for going all Elton John on you guys, but after a week of working hard, (and wedding planning even harder,) we’re just excited that you lovelies have a chance to kick back on the weekend, and catch up with your *ahem* favourite blogs.

This week’s real weddings have been utter stunners. Only yesterday we ventured to Bosnia for a traditional wedding with chic style and a lot of dancing.

Earlier in the week we visited Connecticut not once, but twice, to The Lace Factory for Amber and Avi’s effortlessly chic affair, and to Litchfield Hills for Jess and Jeff’s colourful country wedding.

And then it was up to British Columbia for Jotie and Lucas’ modern take on an Indian wedding – don’t forget to check out their breath-taking wedding film by Tomasz Wagner too!

And finally for a piece of advice worth its weight in wedding cake, check out our new contributor, Bené Eaton‘s post on putting together your Ultimate Wedding Day Survival Kit. So helpful!

To Recreate:

This palette is great if you don’t want anything too girly. It can be prettied up to suit!

• It’s a perfect theme for a groom in uniform so use that as a starting point. Navy works beautifully for this look as it is very smart without being too overpowering alongside traditional bridal colours and looks gorgeous against pretty lace and delicate tulle.

• Flowers are a lovely way to bring in delicate colour. Little hints of softest pink will balance the look and soften the overall feel. 

• Finish with statement shoes – love these gold glittery Jimmy Choos!

Just stunning! Grooms in navy really do it for me, it’s a really modern and stylish look for a guy, a lot less formal than a black tuxe, and much easier to accessorise. And you know us, any excuse to swoon over a pair of Jimmy Choos.
