I saw this great wedding over at The Bride’s Café last week and LOVED the bride’s funky, flirty, fabulous dress (which, by the way, was designed by Chrissy Wai-Ching). That dress inspired this board. I imagine a slightly non-traditional, chic affair with a fashion-forward bride, equally stylish bridesmaids, beautiful (but not fussy) design details and an unexpected palette.

Last week, guest blogger Sarah Darcy wrote a post about tulle and ruffles, featuring several gorgeous, feminine frocks. For today’s inspiration board, I thought it would be fun to also incorporate tulle but with a bit of an edge. I love the idea of pairing tough tattoos with delicate tulle.

As Carrie and Mr. Big showed us, an over-the-top, lavish wedding isn’t always the answer. Something small can be just as stylish. A simple dress, a great photographer, wedding announcements in lieu of invitations, an intimate ceremony at the courthouse followed by a little quiet time alone at a favorite spot in the city, then a meal with family and a few of your closest and dearest friends at a nearby restaurant. Perfect!

This is definitely not going to be everyone’s cup of tea but this board was inspired by these beautiful and somewhat eerie photos which Marie Labbancz posted on her blog a few weeks ago. If your style leans towards the non-traditional, why not reflect that in your wedding? A palette of jet black and blood red can be accented with touches of antique gold, portraits can be taken in a beautiful cemetery and buttons and other memorabilia from the movie The Corpse Bride could be given as guest favors. There’s no reason why goth can’t be glamorous and romantic!
