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!

 

Young House Love Wedding July 29, 2009

One of my new favorite blogs is Young House Love – it’s full of awesome do it yourself design inspiration from a couple who turned a boring ranch rambler into a sleek and modern home. And, it just so happens that they applied their crafty and creative talents to their wedding as well. I don’t know which of the following is more impressive, that a) the bride bought her dress days before the wedding and dyed it to be worn again after b) they relandscaped their whole yard so that the entire wedding could be held at their home or c) that their entire budget was under $4,000. Amazing! Head over to their site to check out their wedding album!
