a journey toward non-traditional wedded bliss, with style

Alice in Wonderland Revisited August 9, 2009

We all know how much I love Alice in Wonderland, so I was doubly happy to discover a new sweetly snarky wedding blogger who also appreciates a quirky themed wedding. Credit Crunch Bride shares her thoughts on how just such a theme is perfectly suited for brides with a budget:

“So, here’s the secret. If your wedding isn’t being planned by The World’s Leading Wedding Planner with a diploma in Co-ordinating Colours, and is rather more of the budget variety, the Alice in Wonderland theme could be for you. It excuses all sorts of ridiculous randomness, wonky home-made cakes, mismatching decorations and strange behaviour. In fact, it encourages it.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself! And pardon my randomness, but I just love the word “wonky.” Check out the full article to see a collection of awesome Alice inspired boards, including the above one with the perhaps the most enviable wedding Louboutins of all time!


Alice in Weddingland March 17, 2008

After seeing the incredible Alice in Wonderland inspiration board from Style Me Pretty, I had to make one of my own. Normally I’m not partial to themed weddings, but Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are high on my list of favorite books, and I really think the whimsical world that Lewis Carroll created lends itself to weddings or parties. Plus, I also happen to be on Spring Break for two weeks so I have lots of free time 🙂

This theme is also one of those rare ones that is easily adaptable for kids or adults, or both at the same time (like the cute party hats I had to include!). My favorite part of the board though, not surprisingly, are the dresses. This Reem Acra dress definitely has a fairy-tale quality, the pale blue color is gorgeous, and I love the bubble hem on the bridesmaid dresses. There is so much more that you could do with this theme, hopefully someone somewhere will have a fantasy wedding like this!
