Lovely Links For November 2nd

Photo by Braedon Photography

Can you believe it’s November already? It seems like we were just saying goodbye to summer. This weekend is the last of the wedding shows for awhile, and while we’ll miss them (until January) we’ll be putting all the great inspiration we gleaned from them to good use here on the site, and that should get us through this cold holiday-free stretch before December rolls around.

On to this week’s lovely links:

+ Check out the cool shoes on this couple!

+ We’d love for someone to snatch this up for their wedding decor

+ Okanagan brides have their own wedding show this Sunday

+ Some epic engagement photos

Lovely Links For October 26th

Happy almost-Halloween, readers! Will you be dressing up this weekend or staying in to watch some scary movies? We’re hoping to do both, and that there will be plenty of candy consumption too. Don’t forget, this is one of the only holidays where you get to take a break from being a bride and become something else (like a ghost or goblin), get out there and take advantage!

Now the lovely, albeit not so spooky, links for this week:

+ Want to know the right way to hold a bouquet?

+ A gorgeous wedding with wonderful pops of red

+ We love these art-inspired wedding cakes (now who wants to make some Canadian masterpieces?)

+ There are lots of beautiful gowns to try on at Blush this weekend

Lovely Links For October 19th

Are you of the camp that loves fall (even when it’s rainy and gray) or are you desperately missing summer? Over here we’ve been indulging in our favorite fall activities, like pumpkin-flavored everything, and the height of wedding show season, and we haven’t felt too sad about the departure of sunshine and late evenings. Besides, gray, rainy weather is perfect for staying indoors and planning weddings.

Here are you lovely links for this week:

+ Brock House Wedding Show isn’t the only wedding fun this weekend

+ And there’s one for you Victoria gals too

+ One of the prettiest weddings we’ve ever seen

+ This could mean some big changes at Vancouver weddings

Lovely Links For September 20th

Today is the last official day of summer. Tomorrow we can get away with staying in to sip pumpkin spice lattes, donning a sweater, and curling up with a good book, even if the weather’s sunny and warm. Although most people don’t gravitate toward fall weddings, we think they can be some of the very prettiest. After all, time it right and your photographs get the most colorful backdrop just from nature’s yellows, oranges and reds. So we’re excited to see—and show—some great autumn weddings and wedding inspiration in the coming months. That is, when we can pull ourselves away from cooler evenings spent by the fire.

Here are this week’s lovely links:

+ This eclectic wedding will linger with us for a long time

+ Not only is this the coolest bow tie we’ve seen, it’s on sale!

+ Pretty e-card wedding invitations (some of them free)

+ This.is.beautiful

Lovely Links For June 22nd

As of Thursday it officially became summer (did you hear that, weather?). Whether it’s warm and sunny or not, we’re ready for a glass of rosé, an incredibly bright-colored pedicure and our favorite worn-in denim shorts. So ready, in fact, that we’re going to take off a little early today and get to it—you won’t tell anyone, right?

But first, here are the links we’re loving from around the web this week:

+ A farm to table inspiration shoot with an equally inspiring menu

+ Everything But The Groom starts their pre-Canada Day sample sale this Monday

+ Don’t think the Red Hot Chili Peppers would work as wedding music? Watch this

+ Somehow these seem more summer appropriate than fully floral boutonnieres

What are you plans for the weekend, brides-to-be? We’re hoping to sip some delicious margaritas at some point (it’s Cinco De Mayo on Saturday, after all) and enjoy the spring weather.

Here are the links we’re loving from around the web this week:

+ A set of necklaces to gift your bridesmaids for your vintage garden wedding

+ This perfectly sweet (and affordable) print-at-home save the date from Thimble Design

+ The new Once Wed print magazine that’s so stunning it belongs on your coffee table

+ A beautiful barn wedding at Saar Bank Farms shot by Alyssa Schroeder Photography Continue reading

A Culture Combining Wedding Video To Make Your Heart Melt

As soon as we came across this beautiful wedding video by Weddings in Motion, we knew we had to alert all of you, our lovely readers, to it.

The wedding featured is a great example of how to seamlessly blend two different cultures in your big day, and the speech given by the bride is so sweet we got emotional ourselves.

Happy watching!
