Family heirloom is a must have

On my bridal bouquet was a broach that my aunt passed down to me that used to be a great grandmother’s. Most of my vintage decor came from a Great Aunt’s old antique store, which was pretty special.

DIY Ideas Galore

We, with our family and friends, made so many things for our wedding. We DIYed the marquee sign, thank you succulents, ceremony curtain, floral arrangements and flowers, centerpieces, burlap lace center square and silverware holders, table numbers, all signage, and the candy bags. Our flowers, cake and desserts were all made by my Aunt Kristina, Flowers by Kristina. Even our photographer Marisa with Peterson Design & Photography helped with our wedding design by creating the flower crowns worn by myself and my flower girl.

The 1920s crates, old window panes, barrels, old luggage, 1920s mason jars, old desks were all from a Great Aunt’s leftovers from her antique store she used to own.

Jenny Packham 2016 Bridal Collection

 Jenny Packham 2016 Bridal Collection @weddingchicks

Jenny Packham showed her 2016 Bridal Collection at New York Bridal Fashion Week. The collection is inspired by Shakespeare’s fairy realm and the characters of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and features celestial silk tulles, romantically sculpted corsetry and cascading silk.

While many of the silhouettes aired on the side of breezy, close-cutting mermaids and little shifts were present in the collection as well. There were even a few new embellishments present -one of the dresses even had feathers at the waist, while another had gold sparkles. We love. Click HERE to see it now!
