BABY BLUE WEDDING STYLE

10 October 2016

What's more beautiful than sweet baby blues? So soft and pretty, hues of blue are the loveliest wedding colours, particularly when paired with the lightest touches of blush pink white. A darling baby blue theme can see you from the ceremony to reception with feminine shabby-chic or vintage styling. This colour can work in so many gorgeous ways, depending on how you style your taste. From a beach wedding to the dainty delights of Marie Antoinette in the renaissance era.

To keep your wedding light, fresh and airy, accent your wedding with a lot of white to balance the baby blue hues. Silver also looks incredibly captivating with soft blues, as they're both cool tones that complement each other's beauty. Blue tulle is simply magical, or you can modernise your style with sequins or sleek slim cut fabrics. If you're incorporating darker blues, which will also look beautiful, such as cornflower blue or navy, then a dark blue suit would look incredibly handsome on your groom. If you're looking to keep things light, consider a grey suit or go casual with beige chinos with a white shirt and suspenders.

TUSCANY INSPIRED WEDDING STYLE

tuscany outdoor rustic wedding brides of adelaide magazinetuscany outdoor rustic wedding brides of adelaide magazinetuscany outdoor rustic wedding brides of adelaide magazine

Introduce Italian-inspired rustic elements into your style to create the effortless style so characteristic of chic Europeans. They combine glamorous pieces with earthy elements, such as woods and luxurious materials, for style that is enviably glam! Consider wooden table tops with golden cutlery and crystal motives to ensure your mix of rustic and luxury is spot on!

For true authenticity, aim to ensure your food and bomboniere are also European inspired. A 'bread' bar with fresh crusty loafs is a delicious idea, as are Italian inspired wedding favours. Think quality olive oil, homemade tomato sauce or a fabulous bottle of wine.

BOA STYLE - MENU NAPKIN RINGS

10 August 2016

Menu napkin rings are contemporary and innovative idea we are loving! Clear space on tables for the fun stuff like creative decor and provide guests with an individual menu - no more fighting over a chunky leather-bound book to see what sauce comes with the chicken. These menus are accessible, adaptable to any wedding scheme and create a polished, refined and minimalistic table scape. So chic...



There are a magnitude of designs available online to download, or if you are tech-savvy design your own custom-made to suit your wedding and personal style.  Have fun with stationary - think brown paper bags, textured or embossed paper or a coloured alternative.



Font choice is also a critical element. A font says a million words - literally and metaphorically.  The cursive calligraphy in the image below is feminine and modest while the above images with sans script alludes to a modern and stylish affair.

If dripping in diamonds is not your thing, and you fancy an intimate soiree with close friends and family the casual garden wedding might be your perfect style! Weddings aren’t always four tiered cakes, extravagant chair sashes and an eight course degustation before panna cotta with raspberry coulis for dessert. Celebrating in a low key setting, with a day full of wild flowers and sandals is as special and memorable and we can’t get enough of this amazing style.

Buffets offer a great dining experience, with a communal vibe. Provide high bars, blankets and pillows or stools for guests to perch on as they enjoy some wholesome food.

FLORAL FRIDAY - DIY SILK FLOWER CHANDELIER

5 August 2016

diy floral chandelier materials - brides of adelaide

Flower chandeliers are such a fun and pretty statement piece and make the perfect addition to any venue space to spruce up the ceiling and help in making the area appear larger. So we thought we would put together this little DIY project to show you how you can make your very own floral chandelier. And best of all? It will last forever using silk flowers, here’s how…

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

Silk flowers and foliage
Wire chandelier base
Gardening shears
Flower tape or a hot glue gun
Twine [or something to hang the chandelier up with]

STEP 1: begin by cutting and separating he foliage that you want to fill the base with and tape them to the wire piece with floral tape [or glue]. You can use one type of foliage or you can use a mixture for the base. Do this all the way around until it is robust and full.

STEP 2: add in some green accents on the bottom to create a dangling effect, for example, heather bush or ferns. On the top use greens such as hops that will give dimension and texture to the chandelier.

silk flower DIY chandelier - brides of adelaide

STEP 3: your focal flowers [the larger ones] should be cut so that they are about 2 inches long on their stem and tape or glue them onto the chandelier where you like. They look best when bunched/placed together as shown above.

STEP 4: finish by adding your accent flowers all around the edges then add your twine. It is best if you tie them in a triangle shape to evenly distribute the weight of the chandelier. Don’t forget to consider how and where it will hang before you measure the length of twine– ties around a beam? Nailed in?

BOA STYLE - POLKA DOTS

Sophisticated polka dots are literally everywhere on Pinterest at the moment. From playful tulle prints to feminine and subtle Swiss dots, polka dots are most definitely a fresh idea to consider. The best thing about this trend is that it can be incorporated into almost any element of your wedding from wedding dresses and veils, to tablescapes, stationery, cakes… You get the drift! Off pinks and creams characterise the look, with a splash of mod black here and there. It's fun, it's flirty and it's so easy to create yourself, so join us as we sprinkle some irresistible fun into wedding style...

BOA STYLE - COCKTAIL LOUNGE RECEPTION

3 August 2016

Invite your guests to join you for a sophisticated, elegant and kid free wedding reception. Cocktail lounges are elite and beautiful, romantic and special. We think they make for the perfect venue, with lounges, catering and music. Undeniably non-traditionally we love the style and class associated with a cocktail lounge venue.

Create a unique reception concept and program, cake cutting and speeches on arrival? This will allow guests to party the night away. Perhaps have a designated lounge area for parents and bridal party, playing off the tradition of the bridal party table.



Slip into something a little more fun and sexy for the reception. A wedding gown in a cocktail lounge might get a little hot and not be the most comfortable choice. Gold sequins have always been a fan of ours, or somehting like this gorgeous, white flowing dress is very pretty and appropriate.

2 August 2016

Perhaps you’ve got an undying love for floral prints, Cameo pins, antique collectables or your pear shaped 1ct engagement ring… The antique inspired wedding scheme encases all things vintage, feminine and pretty. Take your guests on an adventure to eras gone by with classy and classic fashion, décor, food and favours all inspired by the fabulous Marie Antoinette. For a soft and stylish wedding aspire to these antique accents in your day.

If you channel you inner Marie Antoinette you immediately vision opulent designs, gorgeous gowns and luxe everything. A chateau dressed in timeless tones of pastels, pinks and gold’s are the perfect backdrop for this soiree. The aim – a plethora of cakes, a multitude of props and intricate details. As a bride, the search for your gown should be one that brings out the soft, sweet and fancy side of you, so think ball gown shapes, layers and a lot of beading and detail.

Lavish floral arrangements and chandeliers, elongated tables and chaise back chairs all make for luxurious extra details. Gold vases contrast beautifully with china dinnerware in muted pastel tones and gold trimmings. Your stationery should reflect the theme with cursive writing and an ornate border; why not have them cut in the shape of a handheld mirror, such a super cute idea. Create a seating area styled with antique sofas and armchairs complete with a few pouffes for your guests comfort, just like the picture below.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - SIMPLY WHITE

1 August 2016

Plato once said that beauty of style, harmony, grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity. Ultimately, less is more. Sometimes, however, it takes a lot of effort to look like you haven’t put in any effort at all. Which is why we have put together our favourite ‘less is more’ styling concepts – ideas in neutrals that are elegant, not boring.

white wedding, brides of adelaide, weddingwhite wedding, brides of adelaide, weddingwhite wedding, brides of adelaide, weddingwhite wedding, brides of adelaide, wedding

White is crisp, timeless and looks fabulous when teamed with earthy woods, taupes and…more white! Understated sophistication is a peony bouquet, a freshly picked flower placed in a rustic glass and a loosely folded napkin on white tablecloth.

Simple details will keep your styling interesting and without a frenzy of colour the beautiful details are what guests will notice. A place card handwritten with love will not be overlooked and a succulent plant is a bomboniere gift that complements the natural, effortless styling. In a fast-moving world colour palettes come and go but style lasts forever.

BOA STYLE - MUSIC TO THE EARS

28 July 2016

The music inspired wedding is vintage-chic and beautiful. Think sheet music, musical instruments and live music. Implement an element of music in as much of your wedding as you can for the perfect wedding styling. Use guitars, pianos, violins etc. at props! Imagine a guitar guest book, making for a gorgeous and sentimental keepsake. Treat your guests to pianists or live musicians to create a cool atmosphere to celebrate amongst, in style.



Sheet music is easily sourced and has a gorgeous vintage feel. A versatile textile which can used throughout your entire day! How amazing are all these gorgeous ideas?

BOA STYLE - BALLET BRIDE

26 July 2016

There’s nothing more sweeter than a little girl in a tutu, and if there was nothing more exciting for you than growing up to be a ballerina, make dreams come true with the ballerina bride style. Vintage and French inspired pieces like furniture, china, silver, chandeliers and crystal champagne glassware brings this fantasy to life. Think plenty of tulle and satin to adorn the day.

Imagine a lyrical performance from a ballerina en pointe before you make a grand entrance. Think ultra girly pinks, more ribbon than you can shake a stick at and an abundance of roses and you’re there. For your gown, big tulle skirts with clean lined bodices are a must paired with a sweet-heart neckline to embrace that femininity and elegance of a ballet theme. Think about perhaps including some chantilly lace for that ethereal look and a waist band to show off your curves.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - CADMIUM ORANGE

25 July 2016

How seriously stunning is this colour?! It is so under appreciated that we have take it upon ourselves to shine the spotlight on it. A nod to the ‘60s and ‘70s, cadmium orange evokes a sentiment or optimism, fun and fantasy. Both playful and sophisticated in its appeal, Cadmium Orange is a warm, welcoming and subtly dramatic orange shade that is striking enough to stand on its own or act as a bold contrast. A beautiful colour for autumn weddings, but don’t be afraid to utilise this is the gorgeous spring weather.

Orange can look opulent and expensive when accessorised with gold and other warm colours and textures or when paired with crisp white and even grey. Pack a punch with a statement making cadmium orange bridesmaid gown or let the flowers do the talking; the cooler months also provide stunning opportunities for fresh flowers in gorgeous hues.

BOA STYLE - I DO DISCO

19 July 2016

Burn baby, burn. This wedding is all about the glitz of the wild disco era; dazzling mirror balls and A LOT of fun. For the couple who love to dance and want their wedding to reflect the fun of a dance party, this wedding style is for you. We’ve put a modern spin on the retro era by toning down the colour scheme a little. Sparkly golds, navys and silver will turn disco fever wedding appropriate so you can maintain an element of style and still whip out your favourite dance moves from Saturday Night Fever.

There's no doubt about it, disco is funky, which is why your styling is going to be a little more eccentric than the average wedding. Mirrored balls are a must - but if you're worried about going too OTT, use them in more subtle ways than your usual in your face types hanging from the ceiling. Place cards on mini disco balls are so cute, or you can merely interpret the disco ball into a modern and cool alternative. These photo booth backgrounds are glitzy and very disco, and disco balls make a fabulous prop for guests to pose with. Bejeweled heels will also sparkle and do the job or you can add a touch of disco shine to your bouquet and bridesmaids outfits.

When you invite guests to a disco wedding, you're setting the standard high - they're going to expect to have a GOOD time. You need to set the atmosphere to get the dance floor crowded and everybody on their feet. Pick your favourite disco jams, and ensure the drinks are flowing. Put your drinks menus in photo frames that reflect your disco style and a mini disco ball on top of your cake is the perfect finishing touch. Finally, create the scene of the disco era with mirrored hanging lights and disco ball string lights that will ensure light is dancing over the walls all night.

THE LONG + ROUND OF IT!

18 July 2016

It’s the day young girls spend their childhood planning. But like all young girls, we didn’t realise the hard – but fun + totally worth it– work that actually went into planning every detail of a wedding. Which brings me to my point – take a seat + let's talk wedding reception set-up, or more specifically - how do you choose between using long or round tables?! The answer? Well you’re a bride, decisions don’t come easy, but hopefully we can make it a little easier for you.

The vibe of your wedding reception greatly depends on how the evening is organised + one of the easiest ways to make your party feel welcoming + warm is with your wedding tables. Don’t doubt its ability to transform your venue of choice ladies – whether you’re having an intimate setting or a lavish affair, your set-up + styling plays a major role.

The three magic words when it comes to influencing your table design decision; say it with me ladies - venue size, centrepiece + interaction! Consider the sizing of the venue + which table style would allow you to efficiently utilise the space, along with what centrepiece design you are crushing over.

round wedding reception table - brides of adelaidelavish wedding reception with round tables - brides of adelaidemarquee wedding reception with round table settings - brides of adelaide

ROUND

This one is the classic choice, if you are trying to achieve that timeless feel then this is definitely the way to go. As long as your centrepieces are cooperating, your guests can easily mingle with one another across the table, along with those seated to their left + right. Each round table takes a single centrepiece + round table cloths are easily accessible, coming in many sizes + colours – hello money saver!!

For a less traditional look, try mixing small + large sized tables for an eclectic feel + this way you can accommodate for the different sized groups on your guest list - it’s a win-win for everyone. One downside however, in a smaller space it is much harder to fit a large number of round tables as they don’t neatly fit against straight-edged walls + corners. So if you are short on space, this may not be the option for you + beau.

LONG

The long rectangle table is your more modern choice + a formal dining dream which has gained popularity amongst brides + grooms. Mingling opportunities for your guests are about the same as those on a round table – although those at either end of the table might have to shout to engage with one another. Creating a regally intimate atmosphere, the straightedges modernize these tables + work really well in both larger + smaller spaces.

We recommend choosing a few smaller, but striking centrepieces [taper candles, foliage runners] placed in a row down the centre of the table or why not try a hanging centrepiece filled with luscious foliage + florals. This style however may be a little annoying for those guests who are seated towards the middle of the table. Why? Could you imagine walking around the whole table just to use the bathroom or boogie it down on the dance floor. If a guest cancels last minute or is a no show, then the seating chart gets little thrown off and can be noticed as an empty seat.

BOA TIP: If you honestly cannot decide over both of these gorgeous options, why not combine both? We are all for bending the rules of tradition, who says you need just one table type – not us! There’s room for all of them at your table [pun intended].

"Darling, darling I simply just love Tiffany's!" Ms Golightly [aka Audrey Hepburn] was onto something in the classic film, and one of our all-time favourites, 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'. Her infatuation with the jewellers and endearing nature has had women everywhere swooning for diamonds and class for decades. Infuse your special day with the unmistakable charm and sophistication that comes so effortlessly to Holly Golightly and create a day to remember...

The classic Tiffany blue shade should act as the base of your styling - a hue that goes oh so beautifully with silver and white! The colour reminds one of the excitement and glamour that comes with receiving a little special something in a lovely Tiffany & Co. box. To create a theme, it's a fabulous idea to scatter pearls along your tables as centrepieces and to use faux Tiffany & Co. boxes as favours filled with deliciously delectable cupcakes.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - BROWN + GOLD

The way that these two gorgeous colours play off each other is pretty perfect, just like you and your beau! You’re gold [vibrant and beautiful] and he is brown [strong and stately] – put the two together and you cant help but fall in love!! You’ll quickly realize these two colours blend beautifully because they are practically the same hue, the difference being a touch of fabulous shimmer. Take a look and prepare to be mesmerised…

Introduce your guests to your colour scheme from the get-go with your invites. Gold-foiled finish with a natural style lends a sense of glamour and elegance to the design, just the right impression you want to make on your guests. Don’t be shy about gathering various shades of gold for your wedding decorations. For example, the tablescape below features classic gold taper candles in brushed gold candle stands. The floral centerpieces have yet another shade of golden leaves tucked inside the greenery. Brown and gold wedding decorations blend together beautifully, lending just enough contrast to create a brilliant look yet still remaining soft and inviting.

Black is the forever-ultra chic colour that no matter how many years, centuries or eras go past, never fails to transcend trends. Elegant, sophisticated and timeless, an all black wedding scheme is ideal for epicurean couples who wish to indulge in the finer things in life during their special day.

Bridal bouquets. They're great. In fact, they're absolutely gorgeous and we can't get enough of them. BUT did you know you can do a lot more with flowers than just bouquets and centrepieces. Yep, that's right. Get your bridal notebook handy (or your finger ready to click straight to your Pinterest board) because we have some gorgeous, unique and creative flower decor ideas for you!

Create a secret garden wonderland with these magical flower garland chair covers, your furniture will become part of nature. Use your imagination (or Pinterest) to discover creative new ways to display flowers. For example, use fishing line or yarn to hang mason jars and test tubes filled with beautiful flowers amongst trees or from beams at your ceremony and reception.

We think this rose chandelier is stunning - use ribbon to hang fresh roses in a cluster. They are soft, feminine and very, very pretty. Let each guest take a rose home as a sweet reminder of the evening. If you're the type of bride who really doesn't want to hold a bouquet (too many guests to hug, too many conversations full of hand gestures to be had!) then ask your florist to create a floral boa that can hang around your neck. A very chic and practical alternative to the classic bouquet.

BOA STYLE - SKULL CENTREPIECES

30 June 2016

So usually when you mention using skulls in your wedding décor people pull the funniest faces at the thought – it’s quite amusing to say the least – but we bet they have never seen them look this good! Inspired by an Alexander McQueen scarf that caught our eye here at the office, it combined girlie pink with edginess through the incorporation of the iconic Alexander McQueen skull. Ladies, we promise you, this post proves that, if need be, skulls can be incorporated into a wedding and still look bridal.

There are so many shapes, forms and sizes that skull heads come in! One of our absolute fave is using Swarovski encrusted skulls; they are girly, glam and look spectacular when paired with fresh florals and candles. Bell jars covering black skulls add an air of modern chicness to any centrepiece, especially when placed on a mirrored base. The key to pulling off skull décor is to keep the palette high-end and clean through the use of black, white, gold or even botanicals, the aim is to make them stand out.

COLOUR PALETTE - RED + PINK

27 June 2016

We love a good colour block; it’s so modern and refreshing! Gorgeously vibrant reds are a match made in heaven when paired with pink hues for a pretty and playful wedding palette –especially when set against a bit of gold or copper. These tones are fabulous as accent colours to really make a statement and add real warmth and intimacy to your look. Reminiscent of raspberries and rubies, be inspired by all the darling ways this palette can make your celebration pop…

Featuring one impactful statement piece is a modern and vibrant way to use this palette; An ombre draped curtain ceremony backdrop complete with romantically lit candles, or a luscious centrepiece filled with red and pink florals to the perfect abstract manicure of bold colours against the crisp white of a wedding dress! If you love this palette, but don't want it to be too bold, choose to limit the reds to pops in specific places and use a light shade of pink everywhere else.

REAL WEDDING - LUCY + NICK

25 June 2016

THE COUPLE: Lucy + Nick

GUESTS: 80

PALETTE: Soft pinks and greens based on our love for Australian natives.

lucy and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidelucy and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidelucy and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidelucy and nick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY + RECEPTION: The ceremony and reception were held in Nick’s brother’s backyard. We wanted our declaration of love to be in a place where guests could feel comfortable and at home. My sister’s partner made our ceremony arch from scratch. We hired guest chairs and borrowed quirky decor extras, including our ‘bathtub esky’ to hold the refreshments.

It was amazing to surprise our loved ones as guests were originally invited to what they thought was our ‘engagement party’. We even had decoy outfits that we wore as people were arriving and then about thirty minutes into the celebration my father announced that it was actually our wedding! We all went inside to change and my brother, brother-in-law and father set up the chairs and our arch whilst our florist put together the finishing touches. Nick and I had our ‘first look’ in the house before we both walked down the aisle with our parents.

THE DÉCOR: Gorgeous Australian native blooms were placed in jars and scattered across the tables alongside assorted tea light candles. Pillows and blankets were spread across the lawn for a relaxed, picnic feel where guests could mingle. Other styling elements such as the old dresser, tables, weathered ‘gifts + cards’ suitcase and doily tablecloths were all sourced from family members. Having pieces from family, friends and the church made everyone feel a part of the day.

FLORAL FRIDAY - PAMPAS GRASS

24 June 2016

This extraordinary foliage really puts the “d” in dreamy. Growing wildly in seas of feathery foliage, this grass looks sublime swaying in the air, these chameleonic species lend a softly sculptural element to wedding styling. It’s the touch of luxe that your nuptials need, standing at up to 5 feet tall in plumes of white or pink hues. For the perfect ceremonial drama create an incredible backdrop of pampas grass plumes, arranged in larger than life fan formations, an overhead canopy, an enclosed circle or as giant clusters spilling from urns.

The feathery plumes are lush and flashy so they don’t need many other flowers to compliment the,. However, they do look stunningly striking against green foliage for your centrepieces and bouquets. You can also use it to decorate your wedding arch or table, venue entrance, or in any other creative way. Used sparingly or not, pampas grass will give your wedding the lush luxe look that will have your guests speaking for years to come.

Monochrome may be a favourite colour palette for weddings, but we bet you've never seen it looking so contemporary and funky!

BOA STYLE: WINTER WEDDING TRICKS

22 June 2016

Brrrrr, it's chilly outside! Winter weddings are some of the most deeply romantic, however they can have a bite in the air during the cooler months. Keep your guests cosy, warm and enjoying your special day with these delicious winter warming tricks...

winter wedding tip ideas warm brides of adelaide magazinewinter wedding tip ideas warm brides of adelaide magazine

Pashminas!

Have pashminas handy for your guests to drape over their shoulders when chilly. They could be cute wedding favours, used as chair decor or displayed in boxes that encourage guests to take one to keep warm. They look super cute and all it takes is a pashmina to take the chill off the air.

A hot chocolate bar!

You heard us, a hot chocolate bar! Set up a station at your event complete with hot chocolate and marshmallows for guests to warm themselves with from the inside out. A fab idea for guests to enjoy while you're off enjoying your photography session, or for a late night cap.

Gloves!

Your guests may have dressed for the wintery weather and worn their snug coats, but often cold hands can creep up on you and put a little damper on the festivities. Provide a gloves station for guests to warm their fingers if the need be.

Bridal sweaters!

It's definitely sweater weather, and just because you're a bride doesn't mean you have to stay cold too. Incorporate a chic angora sweater into your bridal style (and for the bridesmaids) for a cute-as-punch look that will keep you warm AND stylish.

Hot choccy wedding favours!

Send guests home with a little something to enjoy after the celebrations. These hot chocolate kits in jars are a fab way to ensure they spend the day after the wedding with their feet up by the fire, sipping a cup of deliciousness and thinking fondly of your special day.

Wedding bonfire!

If your venue restrictions allow, create a wedding bonfire. Some of our fondest memories are around a fire, swapping stories and toasting marshmallows. Provide some treats for your guests to melt and let them warm their faces by a charming open flame.

Rainy photography session!

Instead of allowing the weather to dampen your spirits, take advantage of mother nature. A rainy day means you can create some gorgeous wedding photos, just like these couples have with romantic umbrellas. Too cute!

Slipper wedding favours!

Send guests home with a pair of warm slippers for their tootsies and they'll be your best friends forever, we promise.

FLORAL FRIDAY - WHITE HYDRANGEAS

3 June 2016

Pop princess Madonna might not be a fan of them – but we sure are, alongside with just about every bride-to-be. Hydrangeas are the perfect classical summer flower and a quite popular wedding day bloom. Not only are the fluffy flowers perfect for creating a romantic, garden vibe, but they also come in tons of colours from bright white and cream to pale blue and antique green to nearly every shade of pink. A truly versatile flower, they stand out bunched on their own or look absolutely fantastic mixed with other blooms.

A dramatic focal point is the perfect accessory to your vow exchange, like this gorgeous wooden arbour that’s decorated in foliage and white hydrangeas. Alternatively, place bunches of hydrangea in vases along the aisle with lit candles for a romantic feel as you walk down the aisle towards hubby-to-be. Lush hydrangeas look incredibly elegant when used en masse; elevate them on pedestals for extra height and drama or wow your guests with amazing tables runners made entirely from fresh hydrangeas.

BOA STYLE - CAT THEMED

31 May 2016

It’s the purrfect day! Cats have exploded on the internet and go perfectly together just as mason jars do with weddings – so why not skip everything in between and out cats and weddings together instead – crazy right?! It’s cuteness overload! It’s fun, stylish and totally unique. Fellow feline loving ladies, be prepared because this is your dream come true…

Don’t leave any phrase unpunned – ‘just meowied,’ ‘furever,’ ‘hiss + purrs’ – the options are endless and are relevant to every aspect of your celebration. Balls of yarn make for the perfect centrepieces when scattered in different sizes and are available in so many colours to match your palette. If you are looking for an alternative to table numbers, naming each table a different type of cat is genius and keeps the theme flowing.

Kitty ears are the perfect accessory addition for any bride and not to mention fun! If you and your partner have cats as a pet then it’s a cute idea to make references to them. Try naming the cocktails at the bar after them and their personalities, or have stickers of their faces on the favour packages. It will sure be one fun feline-fest that you will remember furever [see, even now we are getting in on the puns]!

Southern brides have been using cotton balls in their wedding décor for years, and we can finally see why! More suited for a rustic affair, cotton looks particularly welcoming accented among wood/timber, twine and vintage vases. The natural and beautiful cotton ball is lovely in everything from bouquets to cake toppers—even garlands and chandeliers. Have a look below and be inspired about all the ways you can include cotton…

For a winter wedding, use it to add fluffy white touches to ivory anemones, berries and even dusty miller for that icy, winter look. Tall cotton branches displayed in large vases or milking cans are perfect for venue entrances and even aisle décor – they can even be used in your bouquets too! If you’re looking for something a little different then cotton in your bouquet is perfect, and both modern and traditional.

24 May 2016

It’s time to take it bask to your teenage years where it seemed like a pretty big deal to have a dreamcatcher hanging up in your room. With everything from geometrics to feathers making a comeback, it was only a matter of time until dreamcatchers resurfaced.

REAL WEDDING - KELLY + PATRICK

30 April 2016

THE COUPLE: Kelly + Patrick

GUESTS: 100

PALETTE: Blush and navy. Patrick really wanted a navy suit and I loved the colour of the bridesmaid dresses!

kelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: My gown featured ivory embroidered tulle, including roses spun with metallic thread. The bodice encompassed a sweetheart neckline, satin underlay with sheer lace outer layer, embroidered roses around the boat neckline, sheer lace cap sleeves and pearl buttons lining the back. The dress cinched in at the waist, wrapped with a satin ribbon belt that tied into a classic bow and flowed onto a soft draped A-line skirt.

kelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY + RECEPTION: We chose Longview Vineyard because of its truly stunning surroundings, including beautiful rolling hills, vineyards, old gum trees and superb gardens. We met the cellar door staff on our first visit and they made planning and holding the wedding such a breeze. They are willing to go the extra mile for you, have a wealth of experience in hosting weddings and most importantly they’re friendly, easy going and fun to work with.

kelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DÉCOR: For ceremony decor we utilised our own white double doors and picket fence and decorated them with two beautiful, natural and overgrown foliage garlands consisting of berries and blooms. For aisle pews, flowers were arranged in antique jars and decorated with burlap and lace. Fresh rose petals in mixed pale tones were also lightly scattered down the aisle. We designed and made a lot of the aspects of the day ourselves, including the drinks and food menus and chalk boards. My mother’s wedding dress was on display (I wanted to wear it, however it was way too small for me!). We also placed framed pictures of family members from their own wedding days across a nearby table, which we felt was a reminder of where we have both come from and honoured the special place that family has in our hearts.

kelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaide


THE FLOWERS: My bouquet was so beautiful and feminine, possessing a fresh ‘garden picked’ feel. It incorporated David Austin roses, O’Hara roses, coral charm peonies, Queen Anne’s lace, scabiosa, lisianthus and berries, in tones of blush pink, ivory, white, peach, blonde, dusty green and pops of coral. Olive, ivy berry, silver dollar and lambs ear were used as foliage fillers. Long flowing antique lace and hand dyed French silk bound the stems. Tied to my bouquet were my grandmother’s and great grandmother’s wedding rings, which was a way for me to have lost loved ones a part of the special day.

kelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaidekelly and patrick real wedding - brides of adelaide

PHOTOGRAPHER: Kelsey photographed our friend’s wedding and we had an absolute ball with her on their special day. We also loved Kelsey’s finished products and that was all we needed to confirm that the bright, bubbly and supremely happy Kelsey would be the one to catch all the memories from our day. She was able to make us feel at ease, had fantastic ideas and was a smiling, friendly face on the other side of the camera. She is truly fabulous!

FLORAL FRIDAY - SEEDED EUCALYPTUS

22 April 2016

From your centrepiece to ceremony arbor design, this light and fragrant greenery is not only pretty, but is the perfect addition of texture, depth and fullness to any arrangement.

Eucalyptus gives off a rustic charm making them perfect for a boho or rustic theme. In areas of your décor where there is already quite a lot of colour, use eucalyptus arrangements sparingly to accent the table. The slight blue-green hue of silver dollar eucalyptus can play so well with other colours such as deep reds and maroon.

Faux or the real deal, your guests will feel as though they are walking amidst a beautiful rainforest.

An artful set of initials or even a sentimental message of love make for a personal focal point in your décor – simply cover wooden letters with moss and add clusters of anemones, helleboruses, and jasmine leaves for a sweet flourish. If you want something a little more subtle, moss covered table numbers are the way to go. They look beautiful sanding on their own or covered in a bell jar or terrarium for added oomph.

BOA STYLE - LOFT WEDDING

19 April 2016

There is something striking and special about a loft – whether it’s the exposed brick walling or the wrought iron and wooden beam roofing, it is the ideal venue for brides looking for something different. The key to executing aloft-wedding is to aim for modern style and balance the industrial or rustic architecture in the room. Contrary to what many think, not all loft spaces give off that industrial type feel – although we LOVE it- a white loft space is the perfect blank canvas to create the wedding of your dreams. All the inspiration you need is right here…

The brick walling of a loft looks magical behind strung lights and candles while the high ceilings make for some glamorous drapery and out-of-this world chandeliers for that added sophistication. If a loft venue is what you are after and you manage to score one with ceiling windows, you’ve hit the jackpot. Take full advantage of the generous lighting pouring into the room and begin your festivities earlier in the day – your photographer will love you for it!

REAL WEDDING - TIMOTHY + KRISTEN

19 April 2016

THE COUPLE: Timothy + Kristen

GUESTS: 200

PALETTE: Black, white, silver and gold. We wanted a mix of masculinity and elegance.

timothy and kristen real wedding - brides of adelaidetimothy and kristen real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE SUITS: Our suits were tailor made. I wore a black dinner suit with a full satin lapel, white shirt, bowtie and Prada shoes. Timothy wore a black herringbone suit with satin trim, white shirt, black satin tie and Christian Louboutin shoes.

THE CEREMONY: Our garden ceremony was detached, private and lush yet perfectly central in location. The set up of the beautiful park was everything we wanted. We chose Americana chairs and a black aisle runner. Timothy's father built the gazebo frame we were married under.

THE RECEPTION: We were the first same sex couple to have a wedding at our reception venue and the team went above and beyond to surpass any expectations. They allowed us to bring the lush greenery into their centre and transform the premises into an indoor garden.

THE DÉCOR: Tiziana and Adriana from the Bizzarro team were amazing. Open-air structures were built over sixteen tables and covered with fresh peppercorn branches to give the guest seating an intimate, outdoor gazebo feel. The remaining tables were decorated with custom-built trees to continue the 'indoor garden' theme. Each table was covered with floating candles placed in silver, gold and clear votives. We scattered candles across our table, which was also backed by box brush screening, man made trees and our signature 'TK' logo in the centre.

THE FLOWERS: Timothy, the groomsmen and myself wore black and white poppy boutonnieres. The girls held a single white peony bouquet and our parents wore phalaenopsis orchid boutonnieres and custom corsages.

PHOTOGRAPHER: We were flicking through an issue of Brides of Adelaide Magazine and came across B Captured by Ky Luu's advertisement. After seeing his incredible work, Timothy and I both agreed that he was it. We left Ky in complete artistic control and just followed his direction. We trusted his opinion and it truly worked in our favour. Our photos are a true testament as to how talented Ky is. He captured the most intimate and precious moments of the day whilst making us feel comfortable and relaxed, no matter what the setting. His dedication to his job is second to none.

16 April 2016

THE COUPLE: Vanessa + Nick

GUESTS: 120

PALETTE: White and silver for a fresh, sophisticated and elegant setting.

vanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidevanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: I was lucky enough to wear two gorgeous gowns for my wedding, which were equally elegant and timeless. The ceremony gown was a very classic, off the shoulder style made from an ivory Mikado silk with a long train and button detail. The reception dress was a strapless, sequined design with a layered 'mermaid' silhouette at the bottom.

vanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidevanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidevanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY: We both instantly fell in love with our venue, booking it within a week of our engagement! The location's outside area was perfect for the ceremony given we wanted to be outdoors, and the reception space was the ideal blank canvas for decorative touches that would make it our own. We married beneath a gorgeous lined marquee with an extra large gold crystal chandelier suspended above us. The aisle had two heavy set runs of white freeze dried rose petals to line the length of the chair rows and create an illusion of a lawn carpet.Studio Botanic also arranged two large vases of white chrysanthemums, white tulips, and white roses on white plinths, carpeted with blooms.

vanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidevanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DÉCOR: For the bridal table we chose an exquisite row of rectangular vases with white pillar candles and rock salts sitting back-to-back down the entire length of the table, with space left in between to hold the bouquets. An amazing and full carpet of chrysanthemums in two large varieties, double tulips and white roses held in mirrored, rectangular vases sat down the entire length of the guest tables. Between each vase was a smaller glass vase with a bed of white rock salts and white pillar candles. We also had overhead floral arrangements, including clusters of rounded 'chandelier shaped structures' made entirely of flowers and greenery and held up by an ivy trail. The chains holding up the surrounding chandeliers were also wrapped in ivy.

THE FLOWERS: I carried a simple and elegant bouquet of white roses bound with fabric from my gown and finished with a row of pearl pins to match the back of my dress.

PHOTOGRAPHER: After meeting with James and seeing what a fun, relaxed and happy person he is, we didn't look any further. We really wanted a photographer that took natural looking photos, and also had an eye for stunning backgrounds and settings.

BOA STYLE - HOW TO: FRAMES

7 April 2016

It’s the simple things in life, and who knew that something as simple as a frame could create such a stunning impact on your wedding décor.

When there is a need of a focal point frames don’t disappoint. Hang some frames to create an interesting background for your ceremony or suspend them above your bridal table for a multidimensional effect. You can also place the frames flat around your centrepiece – or for something a little more creative, use them around the bases of your dessert cakes!

Communicate with your guests and utilise frames for everything from welcome signs to menus, labels and seating charts. Use a framed mirror, chalkboard or even a glass frame and simply write with a chalk texture or window marker.

A wedding dress is something a bride will wear once and keep in the back of her closet. Here’s a thought – why not display your wedding dress in a framed shadow box, that way you and all your guests can admire it for years to come.

28 March 2016

Marsala; a subtly seductive and stylish shade that is universally appealing and translates effortlessly into fashion, beauty and all things design.

A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls. Compliment this gorgeous shade with both rich and warm colours such as orange, pink and yellow, or even shades from the cooler end such as purples and blues.

When it comes to florals, selecting darker coloured flowers keep within the palette and look so beautiful. Burgundy dahlias, purple ranunculus and burgundy peonies are a popular floral choice. Many of these marsala flowers would pair beautifully with each other to create a “from the earth” colour scheme. Or you can arrange these blooms with white or pale pink or lavender blooms to brighten things up, making it a great palette for spring or summer wedding when colours tend to be lighter.

21 March 2016

Inspired by the bluey-greys of an autumn storm, the prettiest palette of slate, grey and neutrals come together perfectly for a chic city celebration full of Parisian flair. The cool colours hint at an air of decadence, especially when mixed with bronze and brown shades to add warmth; these colours are the epitome of chic, so think elegant and opulent decor with chandeliers, mixed metals and lashings of lace for your dress.

To make this palette look pretty rather than cold, the key is to layer the shades rather than focusing on each colour separately. Make use of a range of fabrics to do this, which will also add a beautiful texture to proceedings. A Place setting with wooden chargers atop linen and ornate vintage cutlery wrapped with a pretty silk bow is the exact look for that vintage chic style.

Add some instant glamour to your wedding with the use of mirror signs – a simple and striking addition to your nuptials.

Instead of using chalk markers, why not work with your stationery designer and print out seating chart cards to stick onto the mirror for a cleaner look. Monogramming your initials on a mirror makes for a gorgeous statement piece hanging on a flower wall placed either behind the bridal table or even hanging over the bar or dessert buffet.

The best part about a carnival is all the exciting food. An apple pie stick, toffee apples, coloured macaroons, fairy floss and popcorn are all simple and delicious carnival style foods. Cake pops are also a new, carnival-esque style of dessert that you can treat your guests to! Why not offer your guests something totally unique as a wedding favour - thank your guests in true carnival style and have a caricature on hand sketching your guests!

FLORAL FRIDAY - ORCHIDS

Its easy to identify white orchids as a more ‘beachy’ type wedding floral, similar to the fragrant frangipani, with its blossoming yellow centre + crisp white petals, however we think thanks to their versatility, they are just as perfect in a modern affair. Fragrant + exotic, their impeccable look, soft petals, whimsy bloom, unique colouring options + shapes make them sensational choices for a bride. The flutter of "moth" orchids look exceptional when paired with roses in a brides bouquet. Whether arranged alone, in a group or cascading lavishly in a bouquet, they look super-fantastic + will add an air of elegance to your celebration.

REAL WEDDING - PAIGE + CAMERON

6 January 2016

THE COUPLE: Paige + Jake

GUESTS: 98     

PALETTE: Our colour palette was extremely bold, consisting of mainly orange, pink and yellow. Cameron and I are both very creative and wanted a distinctive element to our wedding. We are also quite outdoorsy, so we introduced earthy tones into the pops of colour.

paige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: My gown was designed and built fro scratch. I was looking for something that suited my personality and was distinct from the traditional bridal gowns. I wanted a backless sequined, 'figure hugging' style with am air of sophistication. My train was hand sewn ruffled lace fabric.

paige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY: Over two years ago we ventured to the Adelaide Hills for a day trip to the wineries. As soon as we drove into the venue, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. That overwhelming feeling of 'this is it'. Our ceremony décor was quite refined, as we wanted our family and friends to admire the natural beauty of the location. We chose white Americana chairs for guest seating and a wine barrel for our celebrant to utilise. Cameron and I also had an entertaining 'open photo booth' for guests to enjoy once the ceremony was over. It was a mini Jeep Wrangler with a personalised stamp of our names, wedding date and 'Just Married' printed on the side.

paige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DÉCOR: All our decor was supplied by Olive You Occasions, including personalised items such as milk bottles, 'C & P' letters on our table, wine barrel toppers with our wedding logo, two little orange tea light hippos, humorous books about love and friendship and an eclectic hand painted wooden family. There were also orange espresso cups which were used as tea light holders, wooden photo frames, yellow and orange vases and jugs, a 'mini Jeep Wrangler open photo booth', giant pink balloons with ribbon, white ornament birds and a white 'LOVE' sign. All of our signs and stationery such as menu, program, 'thankyou' and instagram signs and unique table seating chart were designed and printed by Olive You Occasions.

PHOTOGRAPHER: Cameron and I chose Jade Norwood as our photographer. We were looking for a fun, personal and natural photography resulting in images that reflected our relationship and personalities. Cameron and I had our engagement shoot with Jade, which was very relaxed, and the photos turned out incredible.

WEDDING STYLE - HUGS + KISSES

31 December 2015

We've chosen a sweet palette of pinks, reds and golds for our 'xoxo' style, as a tribute to love. Of course, you could use any colour palette that takes your fancy as it's easy to create some 'xoxo' elements. These gold cake toppers are simple and adorable, providing guests with not only a piece of cake, but also a very special kiss and hug. If you can, incorporate 'xoxo' into your wedding stationery, from invitations to menus, to ensure consistency across your styling. "XO" helium filled balloons are the perfect photography prop - use them creatively to create the most adorable pics. Chocolate kisses are an ideal bonbonniere choice (because honestly, who doesn't love chocolate and kisses? Even better combined!).

PALETTE: White, gold, black and coral.

caterina + cory real wedding - brides of adelaidecaterina + cory real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: My gorgeous gown was designed and created by Liz from Eliza French. I really trusted Liz’s vision and expertise and she guided me through the entire process. We worked together to produce something truly special and I was extremely happy with the final result. My gown was a white silk organza design with a French lace and nude underlay.

caterina + cory real wedding - brides of adelaide caterina + cory real wedding - brides of adelaide caterina + cory real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY: We loved the idea of walking from the ceremony to the reception with our guests. After discovering our reception venue, we looked at the surrounding parklands. Cory and I chose a beautiful grassed area with an iconic Adelaide backdrop to highlight our love of the city. The location offered a pleasant walk along the River Torrens with views of the Adelaide Convention Centre, Festival Theatre, and new Torrens footbridge.

THE RECEPTION: Cory and I chose Glen Ewin Estate for their outstanding food, perfect city centre location and unique ambiance and atmosphere, mingling with other guests while the bridal party went for photos.

caterina + cory real wedding - brides of adelaidecaterina + cory real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DECOR: We chose gorgeous Moroccan lanterns that perched above the bridal table. Our florist pieced together a breathtaking floral arrangement to complement the incredible lighting display. The feature completely took my breath away. The number of stems and the density of the flowers were above and beyond what I had expected. We also scattered Moroccan-inspired vessels and candle holders with bunches of flowers to complete the look.

THE FLOWERS: The floral arrangements consisted of David Austin roses, dahlias and blackberries.

PHOTOGRAPHER: Cory and I were looking for a good balance between candid and posed shots. We chose Kim from Panache Photography for his bubbly and enthusiastic nature. Kim was super efficient, lots of fun and had a great eye for detail. It was clear Kim was very experienced and provided exceptional ideas and guidance for photos, locations and timelines.

THE COUPLE: Kristine + Leeham

GUESTS: 220

kristine + leeham real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: My dress was custom made. After trying on so many dresses I realised I wanted something that I could look back on and love! Most importantly I wanted to feel comfortable and beautiful in my dress. My gown was low back with a fitted bust and a unique lace over the bodice. The gown flowed out at the waist, just below a beautiful belt. It was designed perfectly and the staff really catered to everything I wanted. I also had a two meter detachable train. It was great having the option to take it off so I could dance and move around freely without holding onto it all night!

kristine + leeham real wedding - brides of adelaide kristine + leeham real wedding - brides of adelaide kristine + leeham real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY: I always dreamed of a wedding in a beautiful old church. This was something I had my heart set on from when Leeham proposed. It was really amazing seeing the church doors open and Leeham standing at the alter, and saying our vows to each other in front of all our family and friends. The church was absolutely lovely and had such a nice warm feeling. They were also very accommodating to our choice of music and flowers.

THE RECEPTION: We heard amazing reviews of the venue. Leeham and I looked at a few different function rooms, however this venue really catered to anything and everything we wanted, making the entire process so easy. Once we went through all the special features the reception could offer us we both knew we wanted to have our reception there.

The fresh flowers added so much colour, life and a hint of the outdoors to the church ceremony. The ceremony venue was located on amazing grounds to capture some great photos! The centrepieces for the tables were flowers. We had a cone vase with a slightly unstructured large ball of flowers on top. This consisted of cream vendella roses, white ecuador roses, white lisianthus and a touch of greenery. The vase was placed on a mirrored base surrounded by three crystal tea lights. We had chandeliers and a backdrop for the bridal table, as well as Rococo white chairs. We included up lighting, fireworks and dry ice.

PHOTOGRAPHER: We wanted traditional elegance with a modern feel. We were seeking some timelessly romantic photos, but at the same time wanted a few fun group shots as well. We heard really good reviews about the work of Photos Xposed Photography and when we went to meet them we got along so well. Leeham and I loved their professionalism and their willingness to take on our ideas.

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - BLACK + BLUSH

7 December 2015

Some of the best wedding colour combinations we have seen pair a soft colour with a bolder one. For a truly stylish and romantic wedding, why not take into consideration black and blush pink together. Blush pink and black make a striking pair as pink adds a soft and ultra-feminine touch, while black is dark and sophisticated. When put together, you get a high contrast and high style palette that will add instant flair to your wedding.

THE COUPLE: Rechelle + Michael

GUESTS: 140

PALETTE: Pale pinks, soft pastels with other neutral shades.

rechelle + michael romantic vineyard real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: Originally I wanted a simple lace design, however I ended up choosing a fitted strapless full lace ‘mermaid’ style gown. This style suited my body perfectly. I also added sheer straps and had the dress lowered at the back..

rechelle + michael romantic vineyard real wedding

THE CEREMONY: As soon as we walked through the venue we fell in love. There were peacocks and chickens wandering, butterflies in the garden and an abundance of gorgeous flowers. It was naturally beautiful with a very relaxed feel. After the ceremony we treated guests to drinks and canapés on the grassed area where there were lawn games, a swing, tables, lounge chairs, a wheelbarrow filled with water bottles, a guest book table with an old typewriter and an array of flower-filled jars.

THE RECEPTION: Michael and I were looking for something unique. The location had a beautiful French provincial style barn with grand mirrors wrapping around the interior walls. It was beautifully rustic and alternative which we loved. We also wanted our ceremony and reception in the one location.

rechelle + michael romantic vineyard real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DÉCOR: Our seating chart was a large vintage glass window and we also offered an assortment of ‘flip flops’ for those ladies who wanted to kick off their heels and a basket of blankets for anyone who was feeling the weather. We chose a long table setting with white linen, silver glassware, white plates and gold Chiavari chairs for our reception. The candles were rustic gold and crystal in all different sizes and were beautifully scattered down the table. Accompanying greenery mingled through the centre of the table and surrounded the candles, including olive tree branches and varying shades of pale pink and cream roses.

THE FLOWERS: My bouquet was an unstructured design with a mixture of pastels and bright-coloured blooms. The flowers included pink lisianthus, David Austin ‘Juliet’ roses and greenery bound with ivory ribbon. Rose petals were scattered down the aisle and similar florals were used to decorate the tables, outdoor swing, as well as my hair accessory. Michael’s buttonhole was made up of silver suede, greenery and freesia.

PHOTOGRAPHER: We were looking for attention to detail with beautiful light imagery that could really capture the moment. We chose Kelsey from Elevation Photography. I received Kelsey’s details through a friend’s recommendation. As soon as we met, we just ‘clicked’, almost as though we had known each other for years. I looked through her photographs and absolutely loved them. I would highly recommend her; she made the day so enjoyable and Michael and I were very relaxed.

WEDDING STYLE - 50's RETRO

26 November 2015

The retro 50’s’ an era of flouncy, bouncy skirts, Elvis, Coke + milkshakes bringing all the girls to the yard – or the diner bar should we say! Utilising an era to narrow down your wedding theme is an awesome way to customise all your décor… polka dots, coca cola, vinyls + popcorn – YES PLEASE!!. We have stuck with the classic red + duck egg blue but using shades of yellow + pink is so 50’s housewife + we love just as equally.

THE COUPLE: Rebecca + Brett

GUESTS: 80

THE PALETTE: We chose a beach theme because we both love the sea and sand. It is also very relaxing and calming. We ultimately wanted a wedding that included our closest family and friends, featuring stunning flowers, great music and brilliant food and wine.

THE DRESS: I was looking for an elegant, fitted gown with intricate beading and lace. I opted for an off white bodice with lace and beading over the top. I designed my gown and it was a very special experience. I am so in love with my dress. It was a one shouldered fitted gown featuring French lace and beading. Layers of tulle were placed towards the bottom of the gown to give a softened look, which perfectly complemented the beach theme.

THE CEREMONY: It was a beautiful spot looking out to the water. We wanted our guests to be able to see the water behind us during the ceremony. We also live locally and it is a special location for us

THE RECEPTION: We were looking for a modern location overlooking the beach, and of course fantastic food and a great wine list. We had dined there before and the food was amazing.

A gorgeous balmy night spent under the stars singing, dancing + celebrating - it’s time to draw inspiration from traditional European courtyard ceremony and receptions – and ladies this is a trend we just LOVE! The beauty of a courtyard wedding is that you have the ability to go as formal or informal as you like – a three-course dinner or canapés + share plates – the choice is all yours. A courtyard is a blank canvas so this is your perfect excuse to play with theming + lighting; the possibilities are endless from glamorous chandeliers to festoon lights. Don’t forget to let your guests know they will be dining al fresco, we all know that ‘sinking feeling’ when we wear stilettos on soft + uneven surfaces.

Let’s steer away from a perfectly pristine setting and create a moody + romantic atmosphere where plants grow in their own design – natural, wild + utterly breathtaking. Dinner underneath an arbour overgrown with foliage + vintage chandeliers or a table runner made from vines + florals overflowing with taper candles + vintage lounge armchairs - the possibilities are endless, let the natural beauty of peach + green inspire you…

BOA EDIT - THE LONG + ROUND OF IT

20 October 2015

It’s the day young girls spend their childhood planning. But like all young girls, we didn’t realise the hard – but fun + totally worth it– work that actually went into planning every detail of a wedding. Which brings me to my point – take a seat + let's talk wedding reception set-up, or more specifically - how do you choose between using long or round tables?! The answer? Well you’re a bride, decisions don’t come easy, but hopefully we can make it a little easier for you.

The vibe of your wedding reception greatly depends on how the evening is organised + one of the easiest ways to make your party feel welcoming + warm is with your wedding tables. Don’t doubt its ability to transform your venue of choice ladies – whether you’re having an intimate setting or a lavish affair, your set-up + styling plays a major role.

The three magic words when it comes to influencing your table design decision; say it with me ladies - venue size, centrepiece + interaction! Consider the sizing of the venue + which table style would allow you to efficiently utilise the space, along with what centrepiece design you are crushing over.

round wedding reception table - brides of adelaidelavish wedding reception with round tables - brides of adelaidemarquee wedding reception with round table settings - brides of adelaide

ROUND

This one is the classic choice, if you are trying to achieve that timeless feel then this is definitely the way to go. As long as your centrepieces are cooperating, your guests can easily mingle with one another across the table, along with those seated to their left + right. Each round table takes a single centrepiece + round table cloths are easily accessible, coming in many sizes + colours – hello money saver!!

For a less traditional look, try mixing small + large sized tables for an eclectic feel + this way you can accommodate for the different sized groups on your guest list - it’s a win-win for everyone. One downside however, in a smaller space it is much harder to fit a large number of round tables as they don’t neatly fit against straight-edged walls + corners. So if you are short on space, this may not be the option for you + beau.

LONG

The long rectangle table is your more modern choice + a formal dining dream which has gained popularity amongst brides + grooms. Mingling opportunities for your guests are about the same as those on a round table – although those at either end of the table might have to shout to engage with one another. Creating a regally intimate atmosphere, the straightedges modernize these tables + work really well in both larger + smaller spaces.

We recommend choosing a few smaller, but striking centrepieces [taper candles, foliage runners] placed in a row down the centre of the table or why not try a hanging centrepiece filled with luscious foliage + florals. This style however may be a little annoying for those guests who are seated towards the middle of the table. Why? Could you imagine walking around the whole table just to use the bathroom or boogie it down on the dance floor. If a guest cancels last minute or is a no show, then the seating chart gets little thrown off and can be noticed as an empty seat.

BOA TIP: If you honestly cannot decide over both of these gorgeous options, why not combine both? We are all for bending the rules of tradition, who says you need just one table type – not us! There’s room for all of them at your table [pun intended].

REAL WEDDING - BILLIE + AARON

30 September 2015

THE COUPLE: Billie + Aaron

GUESTS: 120

PALETTE: I fell in love with the beautiful warm gold, orange, pinks, reds and yellows in the bridesmaid’s dresses. The shades felt fitting for a spring wedding, and complemented my vibrantly coloured wedding dress.

THE DRESS: My gown was a gorgeous two-piece custom design, made from hand dyed French guipure lace over an ivory coloured silk. The dress consisted of a full high-wasted skirt with pockets and a waterfall hemline, and a cropped top with an open back. I wanted a wedding gown that was different and true to me. The idea of a green dress occurred to me one day and I could not get it out of my head.

THE CEREMONY: Our ceremony was in McLaren Vale. The location consisted of beautiful gardens and lush paddock surroundings. We were treated to incredible views of the natural scrub and native bush land, which made the moment feel very intimate and secluded. Aaron and I also loved the little winding dirt road leading to the property. The outside ceremony and garden setting perfectly reflected the love Aaron and I share for the great outdoors.

THE RECEPTION: A pretty outdoor spot to scatter tables and picnic rugs and hang festoon lighting. The art gallery was perfect for dancing, and the beautiful verandas offered an ideal mingling area for guests. The venue also had accommodation, where I stayed with my bridesmaids the night before the wedding. The location was nice and close to our ceremony venue too!

THE DÉCOR: Our ceremony was kept quite simple, to honour the beautiful gardens and scenic surroundings. Aaron and I decided on white Americana chairs for guests seating. We incorporated blackboard signage and hanging paper lanterns and scattered jars of fresh bright blooms. Beautiful dried petals were also available for guests to toss at the conclusion of the ceremony. At the reception, the decorations included paper lanterns of various colours and sizes to suit our colour palette. Aaron and I also displayed jars of fresh flowers to decorate the tables. We had hoped to have a lovely outdoor area for guests to eat and dance; however the weather had other ideas. This would have included a beautiful black leather lounge and other furniture from Vintage Scene Hire and scattered picnic rugs and cushions for guests to sit and mingle.

PHOTOGRAPHER: Kim from Panache Photography was the first photographer Aaron and I met with and we decided then and there that he was perfect! We were very impressed with his work. Kim was so warm and friendly and genuinely wanted to get to know us. We were looking for outstanding quality photography. Aaron and I also wanted photos that captured all of the important moments, the finer details, the emotions and the fun in a natural candid style. Aaron and I absolutely loved the final result and could not be happier with how all of the photos turned out. Kim was also very happy to take some snaps with our beloved dog, Mack.

We have once again been served a fashionably glorious helping of gorgeous glamour + swoon worthy gowns. taking fashion notes from the starts has never been so easy; feast your eyes on the BOA teams top pick’s for bridal looks.

Bombshell Sofia Vergara did not disappoint [as always] donning a gorgeous gold strapless structured gown by designer St. John with a mermaid finish, she was the epitome of sexy – the girl can do no wrong! America’s sweetheart Emma Roberts stunned in a plunging off-white Jenny Packham custom creation paired with a double chain wrapped around her neck.

Giuliana Rancic’s screamed sophisticated in a soft pastel pink embellished gown, which sat off the shoulder baring a little skin. She complimented her look with simple centre-parted loose waves – the perfect bridal hair.

What’s a red carpet without a little colour?! Turning heads, Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland dared in a glamorous wine-coloured Zac Posen with a dramatic collar - sealing the deal on her impressive style credentials once and for all!

Petite brunette, Yael Stone, opted for a structured silhouette in a pale pink teamed with a not so structured up-do which finished her look off perfectly. Although the gown was a classic shape of a structured bodice + full skirt, Yael added a modern + fun twist, opting to create the dress out of thick netted material and we agree!

And of course, we couldn’t go without mentioning Joanna Newsom in her fashion-forward Delpozo Spring 15 gown. She looked stunning in a unique, structural pink gown with a glittery floral bodice that highlighted her slim waist, which she paired with a deep pink lip. Not for the faint hearted, this dress is what fashion-forward brides dream of, would you dare?

DELFTWARE INFLUENCE

Who would’ve thought humble pottery could make it this big in the wedding world! The pretty blue and white pattern, originated in and around Delft in the Netherlands – hence the name, Delftware. We have been inspired by this gorgeous, somewhat oriental, design complete with vibrant blue. For a stylish scheme that isn’t overpowering, take from the colour of this gorgeous pattern and tie it into subtle features throughout the day. We love the crisp and modern look of this angular cake and the small inclusion of Delftware amidst this modern tablescape. Trawl second-hand stores for vintage pottery to use as vases, serve ware and décor!

Do you have the travel bug? Is a destination wedding on an Island in the Maldives or cute French chateau not quite an option? Well this ‘around the world’ wedding theme is one for you. Travel-inspired touches will have your guests feeling as though you have whisked them away on a worldwide adventure. Introduce your theme with some cute stationery – we just adore this faux passport and flight ticket ‘save the date.’

Suitcases are obviously a must! The vintage kind is readily available, whilst the miniature variety makes the cutest centrepieces. Another fabulous idea is to give each table a location, instead of a number. This ‘Where in the world will you be sitting?’ sign encourages guests to find their location. Will it be Paris, Honolulu or New Zealand? This then lends you the opportunity to get creative with your tablescape and deck each one out with patriot décor!

BUTTERFLY STYLE

11 March 2015

Create a fluttery wedding theme, as you re create an enchanted forest and embrace the elegance and beauty of butterflies. Magically weave the romance of the butterfly throughout your wedding from stationery, décor and table elements. Add a little whimsy to your photography with a gorgeous backdrop of butterfly cut outs or set your cake atop a sheet of grass to imitate an overgrown garden. There is no doubt the little ones will love getting involved in the theme, after all what flowergirl doesn’t love dress ups? With a pair of wings she’ll capture everyone’s attention for ‘awws’ all round!
