A Casual, Whimsical Wedding Moodboard

Hi guys,  I thought I would post another wedding moodboard as I’m off work for another few days 🙂 I had a request from a friend of mine for a casual wedding with a purple colour palette and stars as the theme. So I have tried to oblige. Casual Cupcake tower Cupcake tower.  Top tier is the traditional “cutting” part and then enough cupcakes for the guests. These could easily be topped with stars cut out in fondant. 487592_10151366855036595_170795113_n Photo props allow for some hilarious photo opportunities which can take the edge off more formal and posed photos. 947263_10151356938421595_798481490_n A cute Dr. Seuss quote allows for a casual and fun photo for the bride and groom. 942611_10151362105191595_1629994432_n 3 simple photo frames glued together with photos of the couple around a tea light create pretty centerpieces and still allow easy conversation. Especially around the photos in each frame 🙂 923282_10151362104766595_1123447286_n Sparklers provide great photos and a very pretty experience for a send off. 525214_10151356975961595_497005464_n For the quirky and crafty couple, a DIY hula hoop chandelier can give a twinkly glow above the tables. It is easy enough to get star fairy lights and, as an added bonus, it’s cheap as chips 🙂 f242c4cce260c3f849d1109b2286bc2f If you are a fan of a longer gown. This chiffon creation has a very casual feel and the strapped neckline allows for a light jacket in the evening or a cardigan if prefered. il_570xN.187788074 Or if you tend towards a shorter tea-length gown. the fuller skirt of this 50s style strapless gown would work nicely, teamed with a purple sash and purple shoes. d5a6f60a6515fb00f796e8a974ead06a Of if a less full skirt appeals, here is a cute lace tea dress complete with pockets. Pockets are amazing and this outfit can be dressed up or down, depending on your tastes and the temperature. For the guys, there are two options this time (I am spoiling you). Above we have the classic shirt and trousers. Which can easily be teamed with a matching waistjacket. This can be dressed down a little by throwing on a pair of converse.  And for the Doctor Who geeks out there, you know you want your own Doctor :p Or the more rustic look of a jeans, checkered fabric and linen waistcoats. This has a very rural feel to it and would work nicely if the wedding was being held in a converted barn or orchard. d51b14c292f2da982c6e8d4cd4417a4c A-Purple-Tulip-Bouquet-The-French-Bouquet-Candi-Coffman-Photographer This bouquet adds a delicate and casual feel to the bride’s outfit. and would work perfectly with all the dresses shown. For the chaps, a lavender boutonniere complements the bouquet. diy-wedding-boutonniere2 I won’t often plug a particular dress company, but for the bridesmaids in these theme, I love everything about Dessy. Different dresses to suit different shapes and a variety of different shades of colours 🙂 b_72891_snapshot final-cookie-pops Star shaped cookie pops like these, in a lilac or darker purple colour would double nicely as favours and name places with the tags on the side. I hope you guys liked this, and if you have any more requests, not just for weddings, let me know and I will see what I can do 🙂 Cheers for now, Nys
