Every once in a while, someone comes along here and tries to sell me on the idea that weddings can only be nicely done with professional planning. While some may find a planner useful, and I’d be the first one to advise they use one, it’s hardly the only way to go. I like to encourage couples to think outside the box and find their own way of making a statement.
Well, I found a perfect example of how beautiful a handmade, very personal wedding can be.
This lovely Canadian couple used furniture from their parents’ homes, leftover wood from the groom’s father’s lumber mill, volunteers, elbow grease, and a little forethought to create an elegant, unique, and utterly charming wedding on their own. Read the whole story and see more pictures at Ruffled.
Oh, and David Tutera? Eat your heart out.
In other wedding news, singer Sinead O’Conner tied the knot for the fourth time on the ninth with therapist Barry Herridge. The pair chose the same Vegas chapel where Elvis Presley and Britney Spears (separately) were married. They sat in the back seat of a pink cadillac for their vows.
If any of you have wondered if you can rock your tattoos and a traditional wedding gown, head on over to Kristi Odom’s website and check out this gorgeous inked bride and her fabulous Halloween wedding.
Lovely gown, impressive ink, and a wedding I’m sure the couple will look back on for years with pleasure.
