Your photos won’t load for me! Womp womp!

Casual elements to our wedding:

  • We’re renting a private estate on a lake for the venue for a week. We can sleep the wedding party and some family for the week and offered at least an air mattress to anyone who wants to crash after the wedding
  • Giving the bridesmaids and groomsmen a color & letting them pick their own dresses/suits (aka. mismatched)
  • Catering is a pig roast
  • Our centerpieces are stacks of books and teacups (we’re going flowerless)
  • Ribbon backdrops!
  • Home made photobooth with props that I bought off Amazon (no mustaches on sticks)
  • Very unstructured day. We’ve set a timetable for the ceremony, cocktail hour, when dinner will be served and when we’ll cut the cake. After that, we want people to just enjoy themselves
  • Open bar
  • Bringing our (huge) speakers and making our own playlists

Hope that helps!

  • Wedding: July 2018 - the oak tree of peover

lovely dress and earrings! the butterflies are cute and definitely not something a 40-something would try!

i’m also 21 (as is my FI) and although by the time we’ll be married we’ll be 23 that’s still pretty young. we’re not a sickly sweet couple as it is, probably given we’ve been best friends for 7 years, so want it to be a fun day rather a really mushy one! (ofc hopefully there will still be some ‘awhh’ moments but generally i find romance is a bit embarrassing to watch and think it’s rather a private thing than public one!)

elements we’re including;

  • candy buffet
  • no flowers – instead i’m having a brooch bouquet and including peacock feathers into centerpieces
  • our guestbook will hopefully be pre-printed pages with questions and boxes to fill in such as ‘draw the bride and groom’ to keep it fun!
  • fairy lights for decoration
  • novelty cake toppers
  • making our own playlist which will just be bands we love and alot of swing and jazz – no adele etc!

i’d be interested to hear what ideas you’ve included? πŸ™‚

Let’s see…

Darling Husband and I were pretty young when we got married (21 and 23) and we’re 22 and 24 now.

I think my dress was definitely young. It was fun, had lots of cool elements, etc.

I had a “bling bouquet.”

We didn’t use traditional music. We walked down to “Two Is Better Than One.” We walked out to “Happy Together.” Our “cocktail music” was rock music played in a traditional way, which was REALLY fun. It was by Vitamin String Quartet called “The Rock n Roll Wedding.”

We walked down the aisle together, which was one of my favorite things.

We had a slideshow, if that counts?

Our guestbook was full of pictures and fun quotes we love.

The wording on our invites, Save-The-Date Cards, wedding website and programs was pretty casual and reflective of our personalities.

Our centerpieces aren’t necessarily “young” but they are unique and different. We had plate stands with “family favorite” recipes on each tier. It was a hit! And fun.

I’ll come back if I think of more! πŸ™‚
