An Inspired Affair.

Monday, May 19, 2014

 Have you all seen the STUNNING pictures from Poppy Delevingne's weekend wedding?  If you haven't then your eyes are in for a real treat!  Since I've been helping my little sister plan her wedding, I can definitely say my interest in this type of events has peaked, but I've been somewhat disappointed in a lot of inspiration that is out there.  Sure, most of it is couple centered, and I get that everyone has different taste, but lately what's been turning me off is just how over the top some of these events can be.  It's like people hear the word wedding, and they try to add in everything but the kitchen sink as far as decorations, favors, table settings, menus...etc.  I don't know about you all, but as a guest, the most memorable weddings that I've been to are the ones that are simple, with great drinks, good company, and a killer band.  Now, since I'm not a supermodel, nor am I friends with one, sadly, I was not invited to this wedding and cannot attest to the perfection of the reception, but if these wedding shots are any indicator, you can bet it was a beautiful, understated affair.  You can bet we're taking copious notes from this one! 

Obviously we all can't get married in custom couture Chanel, but I have to say that this dress is probably the most beautiful I've ever seen.  EVER.  The cap sleeves, the detail, the structured bodice and flowy skirt, all so so so beautiful.  I also love how she wore her hair down, and kept everything so white, from the flowers to the bridesmaid dresses.  Whoever thought to add that subtle smokey eye is genius, and I can assure you I'll be pushing for some of this at my sister's wedding. Of course, we can't leave out those darling flower girls, and her husband looks so dapper in that gray suit and tails. I'll take one of everything ;)

That wedding was all rather delightful wasn't it? The dress! The bridesmaids! And of course she is so beautiful. I wouldn't know where to start planning a wedding these days; there is just so much to think of and so many lovely touches to add. But most of all - having hair down sets a really nice tone - you have to be brave to do it - and have great hair - but how fab does it look? L x

I hadn't seen this before, but it is so beautiful. I agree with you a lot of weddings I've seen lately have been so big and over the top. I adore the bouquet and the simplicity of these pics. Very nice. And congrats to your sister!!
