Our January Pinterest Roundup: New Years, New Ideas

27 Jan

C4 Morning guys + dolls!

Thank goodness Monday’s over and done with, hey?! Well, we’re about to get super pretty all over yo’ face today as we round up some of our favourite Pinterest inspiration from the month of January! With the new year came a whole bunch of amazing new ideas: from superbly colourful ceremony back drops, to hanging flowers, to some seriously gorgeous texture inspiration for your bridal outfit.

We’ve been pinning our little hearts out to find you the freshest on point style to have you swooning with glee and bursting with ideas for your 2015 wedding.

So without any further ado, grab yourself a cup of Joe and prepare to be inspired beyond all you’ve ever dreamed of…

‘I Do’ …Want That Backdrop

For those in the know, ceremony backdrops have been a seriously hot concept for a little while now. We’ve seen streamers, we’ve seen glorious floral garlands, we’ve seen the lot! But as we came into the new year, 2 polar trends seem to be emerging where ceremony backdrops were concerned…

Au naturel…

C3 C5 C6 C7 …Think lace canopies, indigo hand-dyed fabrics, rustic woods, and candles all paired with a luscious dose of green foliage.

A simple, clean, hyper-natural palette paired with soft, humble textures.

Perfectly understated.

C13 I mean, is there anything better than those insanely gorgeous muted colours of those bunting triangles?

Plus, hello?! Who knew un-strung bunting could look so incredible?!

But then on the other side of the pond, things got a little more (wonderfully) cray-cray…

C1 C9 C11 Yah.

..Like a rainbow just slapped you in the face right?!

AND. WE. FREAKIN. LOVE. IT.

Summer weddings totally need to hit up this abundance of colour and texture for their ceremony backdrop.

More colour, more layers, more texture.

More is more.

C12 ‘Cos, come on! We know you want all the tassels.

Who doesn’t?!

Hang out your Flowers

So, I’m like, head over heels for this concept.

Not all brides are full on flower gals, (yes, that’s me you can see, raising my hand), and for those brides looking to add a whole load of originality to the flowers involved in their wedding, look no further.

Go for all foliage, or add in deep dusky pinks or lavender and simply: hang your flowers.

Yeah, you understood right, hang them upside down like, as if you’re drying them…

H1 H2 H11 This trend is popping up everywhere. All the it-girl fashion shoots are making this wholly natural statement.

It puts such an unusual, rustic edge on the fresh-flowered look.

It’s effortless chic and we just can’t get enough of it.

H3 H4 H6 H5 H7 And just to add a little spin to it, why not hang oversized cactic leaves? Or single stems in test tubes?

As long as the leaves or blooms aren’t conventionally arranged, you’re pretty much nailing this trend, gals!

H9 H10 And yes, this pantry-esq look compliments our favourite 2015 trend, Industrial Styling, insanely well!

Knots + Braids + Knots + Braids

Honey, it’s safe to say this trend is sticking around, and I dunno about you gals, but I couldn’t be more stoked!

Whether it’s a braid or a knotted look, your locks are gonna look SO DANG FINE on your wedding day!

…And FYI (yes, speaking from experience here) nothing lasts as well as a braided up do! Aside from attempting to pick copious amounts of lavender confetti out of my hair on our wedding day (rather unsuccessfully I might add. Dude, I was so chilled for the rest of the wedding!) my hair stayed intact for the entire day without a second thought (or hair grip!).

And umm hi, they’re SO friggin’ priddy!

HA2 Add ribbon. Definitely add ribbon.

And as for this almost mowhawk-style knotted up-do..

Well, SWOON.

HA9 Every hair tone, every length.

Knots or braids; babes, you can’t go wrong.

You Can Sit With Us

Yes!

The kindness movement, the antithesis of that infamous Mean Girls line ‘ You can’t sit with us’, this all inclusive, sociable vibration is catching, and it’s spreading right into the wedding world also!

We’ve see so many crazy-good pins inspiring couples to create spaces that encourage socialising and interacting with fellow guests.

Outdoor lounges are a great place to start, still ridiculously on trend, you really can sit with us, whether there’s a spare seat on the Chestfield, the edge of a hay bale or simply a spot of grass left, congregate together around a focal point, be it a gorgeous chest-come-coffee-table, the guestbook or a fire pit…

Get your guests together!

S1 S2 And duh, NOTHING makes people socialise like food, and a share platter is hands down the best way to get people chatting, laughing and sharing stories!

S9 S3 S6 Customisable spaces are just everything.

Us British peeps all too often resign ourselves to our designated seat, whether it’s sat where we wanna be, where we’re comfortable, or not. To the point where we’ll leave a conversation unfinished, even though we’re completely captivated chatting to said person, just to take our rightful seat…

Whelp, 2015 is the year of taking whichever seat you like. Encourage guests to customise spaces, to congregate naturally, organically, to move the floor cushions, to sit on the walls… There’s such freedom and positivity to be had in allowing people to socialise and group naturally!

Power to human instinct!

S5 S4 And lastly, add a little playfullness to proceedings to get your guests gelling and causing a raucous!

Who said crackers were only a Christmas thing, anyways?

She’s Got Texture on her Texture, Darling

Last up there’s some SERIOUSLY luscious dress inspiration all over Pinterest right now and one of the key elements?

TEXTURE, darling.

After all, why be 2 dimensional when you could be 3?

T1-2 Left: Oh My Wedding Planners  Right: This is Glamorous

T4 T5 Ruffles, dreaded faux furs, heavily textured lace, if it’s feels interesting, if it moves, it’s HAWT.

Drape veils for dreamy portrait shots, push up your sleeves for added dimension, swish that tulle skirt, spin in your fur… Werk it, girl!

T3-6 Left: The Lane  Right: Roswe

T9 T10 Young & Hungry Left: Oasis Mag  Right: Kinfolk

For. Real. The year of texture is here and not just one: layer up those fabrics for maximum impact and on point bridal style.

And then? Then send us a photo so we can drool at your magnificence and wish we could be brides again. #justkiddin #actuallybeingserious

Ahem! See y’all tomorrow dolls!

Peace + Love

Style Files: Solange Knowles Best

26 Nov

1  I. Can’t. Even.

Seriously though, I don’t even know where to start with this style file.

Solange, girl, you NAILED IT.  (Yeah, we’re on first name terms, and what!?)

All white errthang (bridal party, guests, bikes… Literally everything!), more outfit changes than the cast of a Westend musical, striking gold accents and pretty much just bustin’ wedding tradition in favour of something alternative. Needless to say, we LOVED IT.

Just incase your eyes are yet to see the beauty of this wedding, prepare yourself for sheer class…

3 Image by Rog Walker 8 4 11 9 Image by Rog Walker 5 Solange Knowles Marries Alan Ferguson - Rehearsal Dinner So, capes are clearly  a seriously good move for brides right now, hey?!

Almost all of Solange’s outfits featured either a cape of a flared sleeve. From the floor length caped Humberto Leon for Kenzo dress she wore to the ceremony (ja-freakin’-dore!) to her asymmetric Stéphane Rolland Fall 2012 Couture jumpsuit for the pre-wedding festivities…

Man I wish I’d hit up a cape or a jumpsuit for my wedding…

That’s excuse enough to renew your vows, right?!

Of course, we haven’t even touched on the stylish guests (definitely not to be overlooked!)…

7 10 Statement gold pedicures, bright crimson lips, a floor length feathered skirt (Oh hey, Jenna Lyons, you’re my new style icon!) and a faux fur slung over one’s shoulders (the only way to don your jacket this season).

The details were everything and Solange was delivering some major inspiration on that front too…

14 Image by Rog Walker 6  The gypsophilia, the wide gold cuffs, THAT RING… OH, the ring!

So, how do you get yourself some of this serious style? Well, we’ve pulled some of our favourite pieces together for you while chanting our new style mantra on repeat…

‘Solange Knowles Best. Solange Knowles Best.’

28 First up, THAT RING.

Who else would we look to?! Artemer always delivers the goods. (Yes, y’all know I’m biased, but you can’t deny it!)

This ring is totally next on my wishlist…

30 29 31 Or, if you fancy a diamond alternative, maybe something rough cut, take a look at the work of Point No Point Studio on Etsy.

This rose gold cuff ring features one natural black rose cut diamond and one white rough diamond.

Gorgeous, hey?

15 16 And those simply striking gold cuffs Solange owned? Yah, we got you covered!

I wore a super wide cuff on my wedding day and I have to say never did it cross my mind to wear identical cuffs on each arm (I wore a delicate bangle and stringed bracelet on the opposite wrist), but I am SO in love with this concept; it makes for such a beautifully balanced look!

Bold, simple, statements…

34 35 Now, let’s talk dresses or jumpsuits, as may be the case!

Loved Solange’s ever-changing silhouette, but thinking it’s not feasible or maybe a little beyond the constraints of your budget? Well, you’re gonna just ADORE the shifting shape of this jumpsuit by Daniela Tabois on Etsy…

36 37 39 38 We just LOVE how the jumpsuit transforms from ceremony-perfect to evening-reception-chic with the loss of the peplum skirt.

I’m pretty sure your guests:

a) Won’t see the jumpsuit thing coming

and

b) Will find the evening transformation equally stunning!

Want something equally gorgoeus, a little more androgynous (major trend, we’re hooked!) and featuring a jaw-dropping plunge neckline? (Thanks for encouraging this daring trend again, Solange!)

Russian based Etsy shop, Baby Doll, have seriously killed it with these clean lines…

33 32 OK lady, so you’ve already bought your dress, but have just fallen head-over-heels for the cape trend…

This delicate, sheer cape accessory is totally for you. A slightly more effeminate take on the trend with a boho edge that we’re swooning for.

22 23 24 Or how about a reception dress?

An asymmetrical flared sleeve (a subtle nod to the cape) coupled with a simple, chic tulip skirt and curved hem…

Understated drama; our favourite oxymoron right now!

25 26 27 Of course, with a super chic bride, you couldn’t have anything other than a crazy stylish flower girl or little maid!

We’re going totally CRAY-CRAY over the amazingly sophisticated mini pieces by designer Catteliya.

Clean lines, simple and non-cutesy designs make for one seriously cool little maid!

17 18 Clearly, leopard print Docs are the only shoes your flower girl should be donning!

  19 Take a seriously elegant cue from Solange and her beau and own the white-on-white-on-a-little-bit-more-white trend.

I’m gonna put this out there and say this may be one of my favourite celebrity weddings ever…

What do y’all think? Do you feel you could pull off this trend?

Holla at me!

Peace + Love
