Our friends at Rustic Wedding Chic share how to style a coastal rustic wedding for your own bridal look and your ‘maids.
Set sail with your guests as you take off on one of life greatest adventures: your wedding! Whether you are planning to say “I do” in a tropical setting, at a beachside affair or on the shores of your favorite lake, our three carefully curated looks will help set you in the right direction.
Today, we’re excited to bring you a guest post from our newest collaborator, Rustic Wedding Chic!
When thinking of hosting a rustic wedding, it is important to remember that you don’t have to skip the glamour just because you are selecting a rustic location. Venues like barns, vineyards, farms and lodges are beautiful backdrops for a rustic chic wedding, and they work perfectly with more dressed-up looks—for both the bride and the bridesmaids—for a one-of-a-kind event!
Cold? Yes. But fun, beautiful and memorable as well? Yes!
With help from our photographer friends at Snapknot, we’ve compiled these snowy scenes to help inspire your winter wedding photos. Put on your boots, get outside and take advantage of the weather on your big day! A winter wonderland is so romantic–and a beautiful backdrop for a white dress.
(P.S. Thinking you may need a jacket or sweater to brave the elements like this? Check out our post on our favorite wedding cover-ups!)

Saukok Tiampo of REVEL shares a twist on the typical winter wedding color palette. We love her fresh ideas!
Today’s Evergreen + Teal wedding inspiration combines modern glamour with a touch of rustic holiday elegance! This lace mermaid wedding gown is classic and sophisticated, and bold teal pumps add a wintry pop of color. Evergreen details and deep teal hues complete the look of an unexpected winter wonderland for your Big Day!
Saukok Tiampo, regular guest contributor from REVEL, offers glam wedding ideas in a fresh color palette.
Today’s Art Deco Blush + Gold wedding inspiration is full of romance with a Great Gatsby twist! Keep your flowers classic in hues of blush and cream while your ‘maids don vintage-inspired gowns. Art Deco touches like earrings and signage bring a luxe vibe, but keep things from looking like a theme party.
Today at Lover.ly, we’re frolicking deep into the woods with whimsical, woodland-inspired wedding decor. This cozy theme is all about nature—with a little bit of glam thrown in for good measure, of course. Imagine saying, “I do” underneath a blanket of stars and twinkling lights, surrounded by vibrant purple wildflowers, mossy tablescapes and wooden details… makes us want to curl up by a crackling fire with our sweetie. Who knew the Great Outdoors could be such a magical place?
On the day after a big event—say, oh, a wedding—it’s only natural to want to see pictures right away. While your professional photographer will take a few weeks to process images, you know your guests had their phones and cameras out all night, snapping away! You can start texting or e-mailing, asking people to send photos so you can relive the experience. Or you can prepare ahead of time and use the easy way: Capsule.
This is the kind of moment you want to see—make it easy for your friends to share the photo with you.
Capsule lets guests instantly add digital photos to an album you set up, so all of your wedding photos are in one place, automatically. Users can either add photos from a mobile device through the CapsuleCam app, upload to the web version from a computer or pull in Instagram photos using a specific hashtag. Easy and quick!
You control who sees the photos using a code specific to your album. Just let your guests know the code (put it on a sign, add it to a program, link to it from your wedding website or use Capsule’s custom cards). Friends and family can make comments, share images on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, and even order prints through the Capsule Marketplace.
Right now, Capsule is holding a Pinterest contest for a chance to win an iPad Mini! Think about your favorite color schemes, a DIY project, a creative cake or your dream Nordstrom wedding dress and build your board. Visit the Capsule blog for more information and start pinning away.
Last month, our friends at mywedding.com inspired us with two wedding-worthy hair how-to videos. Now we’re moving into another hot wedding subject: table decor!
We know this can be a stressful task for many brides who don’t feel confident in their DIY skills or creativity. That’s why we love this mywedding video! In just 2 minutes, five different tablescape themes come to life: big blooms and books; vintage plates and vases; earthy succulents and wood; rustic antlers and lanterns; and quirky lemons and picnic patterns. Each style is distinct, yet simple!
Forget basic curls or the fall-back bun. Our friends from mywedding.com—wedding planning site extraordinaire—are here to share two unique, modern hair style ideas worthy of the big day. Before you finalize your bridal style and hair accessories, you’ll want to check these out!
Not only do we get to see the styles, but with these handy videos, we actually get to watch the step-by-step process of how a professional stylist creates each look. The steps are quick and easy to follow–take them to your hair stylist or even have a friend help you. Just remember, a crazy amount of bobby pins and hairspray are must-haves!
Ready to hit the road, cozied up in your favorite boots and trusted scarf, with your hair blowing in the wildflower-scented breeze? Summer will soon be a distant memory, and what we love best about the crisp, clean feel of fall is getting up close and personal with the one we love, snuggled by the fire, listening to music… or perhaps standing at an altar, promising to ride shotgun on all the little trips life may take you on. Today, we’re imagining the perfect Americana wedding, complete with farm stand comforts, casual elegance and a colorful sunset painting the evening sky.
