Scandinavian Garden Wedding

Wedding Day Recap Becca here with a post-wedding recap! It’s been over a month since we got married and we just got all our pictures back from the big day! Scrolling through pictures, I was able to relive every moment and found myself smiling the whole time. Thinking back on our wedding day, it was everything I had imagined. And seeing my vision come to life made me absolutely giddy! I am a firm believer in utilizing your resources when it comes to wedding planning, and I could never have done it without so many talented and gracious people.

Creating an inspiration board early on in the wedding planning process was essential for me! Not only did it help me identify and narrow my focus for what I wanted, it was also extremely helpful to use as a reference for those contributing. Everyone understood the look I was going for and so many people pitched in to make it happen! Never underestimate the power of help.

Here’s a peek inside the reception!

How to Make your own Bridal Bouquet

How to make your own bridal bouquet

Oh, how I love flowers! They’re just the icing on the cake when it comes to every special occasion, most specifically a wedding. They manage to bring everything together: the colors, the theme, the feel. After I picked the theme for my wedding, Scandinavian Garden, I knew that the flowers were going to be a huge factor in creating the look I wanted. Can’t have a garden without flowers! I wanted a bouquet that would look almost as if it had been plucked fresh out of the ground: very whimsical, asymmetrical, and full of wild flowers.

Luckily, I found a florist, Erin Keller of Urban Chateau Floral, that I was able to work with on a more personal level to create my dream bouquet. After working with her side by side, I’d recommend this to every bride! Erin shared some floral design tips with me, asked me my opinion as we went, and made sure the bouquet was perfect in every way. I thought I would pass along those tips to how to create your own bridal bouquet! You’ll have some basic guidelines for creating gorgeous floral arrangements, whether you’re getting married or not. Flowers are always in season!

Exclamation Point Bridal Accessories

Bridal accessories

Usually, when a woman first gets engaged, her thoughts turn to the wedding dress. It can be a difficult process to choose the perfect dress: You often have to try on dozens of dresses, visit multiple shops, it may take months to ship, and there are almost always alterations for size and customization. Have you ever seen “Say Yes to the Dress”? It can get pretty intense! I was lucky, or maybe crazy (?) because I bought the second dress I tried on. Nevertheless, it can be an overwhelming process, enough so to make you forget about accessories. No wedding look is complete without the accessories! Michael Kors said, “I have always thought of accessories as an exclamation point of an outfit.” Every bride wants exclamation points, right? I got the prettiest shoes and jewelry from BHLDN to add the exclamation point to my wedding dress and I couldn’t be happier. They are right in line with my Scandinavian Garden theme. I have a few tips when it comes to choosing your accessories

Take a closer look at our exclamation point bridal accessories

Wedding Inspiration Board
