So much of what defines a beautiful wedding dress for me is the detail. Anything unique, creative and totally unexpected get’s me every time, and when that dress is under $500… well how can one not be tempted (apart from the fact ones credit card is in an ice block in the freezer!) I have been following Baby Doll Shop for a while now and I am very tempted to buy one of these dresses to giveaway! Which one would you choose to wear down the aisle?
New Zealand is famous for it’s beautiful landscapes and wide open spaces, so it is no surprise that more and more couples are taking advantage of the outdoors with rustic style weddings in rural settings (especially handy if there is a farm in the family!) Today I give you some rustic styling inspiration from animals to hay bales for your relaxed shindig. Cowboy boots optional. xox
I am all about Skinny Love Weddings. Simple, stress-free, fun and affordable – but still personal (isn’t that what all weddings should be like!?) While you still get to write your own vows, choose floral’s, cake flavours, personalise your music choices and all those other little details that will make your wedding ‘you’, Skinny Love Weddings takes all the fun and exciting parts of getting married and rolls them into an affordable, stylish pop-up wedding service. All you need to do is show up on the day with a marriage certificate, rings and the love of your life! Amen to that!
We have so many talented designers in this country it seriously blows my mind, and when the team at Natalie Chan sent me images of their collection my jaw dropped.

I am especially in love the coloured gowns in those soft tones, unique yet classically breathtaking. Keep reading for more information on the entire collection xox

A bride on a budget does in no way mean a bride less beautiful, it just means you need to think outside the box a little. One of the best ways to look stunning and still unique is to create your own wedding dress (no sewing skills required!) by pairing a skirt with a top or by layering a top over a full length dress.
Today, some serious inspiration for a Winter (or even Summer!) Wedding. If boho, vintage and rustic had a wedding baby I think it would look a little something like this! Beautifully captured by Wild & Grace with a talented team of Auckland creatives behind the scene, I think you will find some swoon worthy details below! I asked Julia from Lush Stylists to share more about the inspiration behind the shoot…
The amount of creative talent on Etsy is seriously out of this world, and when it comes to weddings Etsy is the perfect place to find everything you could ever need to suit your style and budget. Today I went on a treasure hunt for gifts you would be proud to give your favourite ladies, and all for under $50, Hurrah!
Hannah Claire is a boutique clothing and jewellery brand, who luckily for local brides, has now designed an occassional range including bridesmaids dresses! Handmade in NZ with a focus on simple styles that create flattering silhouettes, each style promises to be worn time and time again after the big day. I asked Hannah to tell us more about her range…
Sometimes I come across a collection of wedding dresses that make me go eeeeeeeeeeeeeee (it should officially be an emotion!) Based in Tel Aviv, Meital Zano Hareli was the winner of the ‘Bilbao’ international young designers competition, and has made a name for herself in reputed fashion houses and now as an independent designer.
Oh la la today’s wedding is a STUNNER. As soon as I saw the Sass & Bide bridesmaid dresses I knew it was going to be one stylish shindig. And well any wedding situated on the wonderful Waiheke Island with the talented JESSICA PHOTOGRAPHY behind the lens is going to be ridiculously beautiful! A big congrats to gorgeous couple Karla & Duncan and a massive thank you to Jessica Photography for sharing this fab wedding with us! Enjoy xox
