Happy hump day to you, we thought we’d take this opportunity to pick you up out of that mid week lull with a round up of some of our favourite pins of the moment! Everyone knows that Pinterest is a HUGE source of inspiration for budding creative brides-to-be, (like seriously, what did brides do before Pinterest?!), but it can also be pretty overwhelming, right?
So, we’ve stepped back from our desk, moved our mouse away from the little red ‘Pin It’ button and allowed some of this incredible inspiration to actually soak in… Yes, even us bloggers get a little overwhelmed sometimes (a lot of the time!)
Let’s take a moment, shall we?
Always a firm favourite with our Pinterest followers is our ‘Beautiful Dresses’ board, I mean, it’s kind of a key element, hey?!
There are so many great trends buzzing around this autumn, many of which we’ve mentioned before, but they’re starting to really come into their own! For starters, the blush trend isn’t going anywhere, it has however taken on a slightly dustier pink edge to cool it off for the season…
And of course, minimal clean lines and loose fitting shapes are what you gals should be looking at buying for next summer. That long skinny keyhole detail though, some serious #bridalswag…
For autumn/winter brides, it’s all about the runway sparkle, we love the extra dimension it adds to any photo…
Of course, the astrology trend (we talked about it pretty extensively here) is going absolutely nowhere! As you’ll know if you follow our Instagram feed, I remain completely besotted with this McQueen dress; it simply gets better every time I see it. I mean, the naked baby adds a certain ‘something’, don’t you think?!…
And lastly, remember the separates trend we talked about a while back? Yup, still a MAJOR hit and we remain completely besotted with that little peep of stomach paired super long lace sleeves. Come on…
The Up and The Coming
Ok, so you heard it from our mouths first: these little numbers are gonna be kind of a big deal over the coming months and into spring of next year.
First up? Marble… You. Are. Welcome.
Also set to be a massive trend: decor that makes you look up, a.k.a. all things that hang.
Whether it’s boho clusters of drying flowers and herbs paired with spindly, vertical garlands…
Or some tiny hanging brass bells (PERFECT for autumn and winter!), or if you plan to use some of these incredible plant hangers (seriously, someone buy me one for Christmas, please?!)…
Or a series of chic, origami-inspired geometric lanterns, suspended using invisible thread. However you choose to go about it, wedding decor is all about the mid-air installation!
Haha, so do you guys ever get the sense that the Pinterest gods want you to take note of a fine detail? Can’t help but notice a subtle detail that just keeps cropping up in your feed, like Pinterest is trying to subliminally tell you something? Well, these are for you guys!
We couldn’t help but take note of the seriously clever stationary that’s starting to emerge on our feed… I mean, DIY tepee Save the Dates?! Can I get married again, please!?
And we’re also totally loving this little fan of postcards to get all the details in one place, while remaining super clean cut and cool…
Now, I don’t care if it’s a little muslin pouch to hold you favours, a square of linen as your invite or handkerchiefs for your parents to blub their way through the ceremony, y’all NEED to incorporate a hand screen-printed element to your wedding; it’s kind of a big deal right now!
Last but certainly not least of our finer detail pins, while sipping my morning coffee and perusing our Pinterest feed, a little something popped up.
I probably won’t surprise you when I say, Free People have done it again: Hair Charmsies.
First off, how freakin’ cute did they wanna be with that name, ‘Charmsies’?!
Secondly, they couldn’t be easier to apply. We’re talking instant, dishevelled boho beauty. Check it out:
Am I right?! We’re totally obsessed.
A Bride in Motion
Finally, we need to take a serious moment to appreciate this photography trend; movement, and plenty of it.
Whether you’re lucky enough to be blessed with a beautifully breezy day, or you resort to other means, getting movement into your wedding photography is being SERIOUSLY encouraged right now!
Now, I’m not saying y’all resort to learning to dance point, but check out this in-flippin-credible shoot by Amy Osaba for some serious inspiration and take note on their extensive use of shadows and the dynamic that the layers of that beautiful dress create. S-WOON.
Have a divine evening beautiful people and get dreaming!
Peace + Love
