Wedding Wednesday: {Pack Up The Caravan}

For this month’s Wedding Wednesday, we wanted to find the ultimate destination wedding. We had magical nuptials in Ireland, fairytale stories in Tuscany and magnetic love in Thailand all bookmarked and ready for the choosing. That was, until we happened upon the most enchanting wedding blog, Rock My Wedding, based out of the UK. It features some of the most unusual weddings and gorgeous editorials!

This 70′s inspired wedding editorial, inspired by a traveling caravan, immediate shot to the top of list. What’s a better representation of a summer travel theme than the idea of packing up the caravan and hitting the old, dusty, unbeaten road?

The girls literally started the wedding with a table set for two inside a minty green caravan. For the tabletop, they mixed china, gold accents, and sea glass vases filled with wild flowers and feathers. We approve.

I love that the wedding cake isn’t frosted perfectly and has a little lean. It adds to the free, carefree spirit that the 70′s was known for!

Like a well thought out themed wedding, that same spirit is also found in the decor choices. For the reception area, we love the idea of stringing old bottles from tree branches. It’s a nice way to surround a dedicated outdoor space and it gives a very gypsy like feel to the festivities! The tent is calling our name!!

In this particular editorial, the bride had two dresses. The first one was good, but the second look is ah-mazing. The bride is breathtaking in a more classic style gown, yet it still feels slightly bohemian with a fresh flower crown. The makeup? Perfection. We always say yes to dewey skin and a salmon lip. The style is youthful and effervescent with her sweet braids and her long, flowy dress.

We are completely smitten over the wild flower bouquet. It has a fun and whimsy feel to it with a broad color palette, including lavender, coral and cerulean blue. The idea behind the choices, was to make it look like the bridesmaids had just ran through a blooming meadow and picked the flowers for the bride. We love the longer loopy stems and the casualness the daisy brings to the bunch.

Isn’t the entire spread just dreamy? We love the idea of parking airstreams outside your reception area as a great backdrop for photos. Even better, turn one into a killer photo booth. Sounds like a great way to capture some awesome memories from your big day!
