Purple DIY Rustic Wedding
“We really liked the rustic wood elements and wanted to incorporate them into our wedding. Westwood Plateau has a beautiful outside ceremony space and wood beams in their reception space which made it the perfect venue. Though it did rain on the day of our wedding and we wound up in their inside ceremony space instead.
We also tried to do as much of the prep and decorations ourselves. We hired Thistle Bea Your Wedding for day of coordination, setup and tear down and they were an absolute life saver! Overall, we wanted a rustic, romantic feel to the wedding.”
“We had finally finished packing for a trip to Australia and were spending some time with our dogs when Stu comes in to the bedroom with his hands behind his back. He began to tell me how much he loved me, how the last 4 years had been the best and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. At this point he started pulling the box out from behind his back and I don’t remember anything else he said. I immediately started crying and asking if he was serious. And I don’t mean graceful crying, I mean full on ugly crying. I eventually said yes and he slipped the ring on my finger!”
“For my dress, I thought I wanted a lace dress with sleeves and would up going with a classic, a-line, satin dress which we dressed up with a sparkly belt. I knew I didn’t want a veil, so I choose a head piece that was also sparkly to compliment the belt on the dress. As we had intended for an outdoor wedding, I went with flat sparkly sandals to ensure I could walk on the grass and dance the night away in comfort!”
