Whilst browsing the many wedding blogs out there I have noticed a modern trend for brides to wear coloured shoes. I quiet like it, it looks fun and modern. Also this way you have more chance of wearing the shoes again.Via Once wed

To some pastel colours are romantic and girly and the obvious choice for their wedding day. I however  seem to be drawn to the more vibrant, brighter colours. When I think of Tuscany though I think of the greens of the lush rolling hills, the terracotta and the yellows of sunflowers. A lot of the weddings in Tuscany I have seen that have used bright colours have used yellow or orange neither of which would be my ideal choice. I worry that bright, fun weddings like the images below would clash with the stunning Tuscan scenery that will surround the wedding and not look stunning and timeless in our photos. On the other hand I believe your wedding day should be an expression of you the couple and not simply going with the latest trend or sticking to tradition because you think you should.

This week I saw this fabulously colourful rehearsal dinner on Style me Pretty. To see more images from this rehearsal dinner click here.

Also this week on Style me pretty they featured this colourful New Zealand wedding.  I particularly liked the idea of bridesmaids having the same style dress in different colours. Up until now I thought that both my bridesmaid would wear the same colour but not necessarily the same style but I think the use of colour in this wedding is very modern.

This is another great wedding featured on style me pretty this week. I was particularly draw to because of the use of the colour purple which is my favorite at the moment. However I also like the styles of all the wedding party and more than that when you read the post on style me pretty you later find the romantic story of how the wedding photographer’s boyfriend proposed to her in Paris whilst shooting the couples “day after shoot”! There are lots more stunning photographs and you can read the full story here, here and here on Stacy Reeves photography as well as on style me pretty.

I thought I would share my first wedding mood board with you all. At the moment I like the idea of deep purple for bridesmaids dresses with white flowers and a purple bouquet for me. I believe hydrangea’s are in season when we plan to get married in Tuscany. I like the bright coloured ones in this picture and also white hydrangea. I’m not so keen on pastel coloured ones.

When it came to start planning our wedding there were somethings I knew what I did and didn’t want and other areas where I have no idea what I want. That was one of the reasons I started this blog to save lots of inspiration from wedding sites that I like so when its time to make the decisions I will have lots of ideas of what I do and don’t like. One thing I thought I was sure of was that as much as I love red (I just bought a red le Creuset casserole dish to match my kitchenAid and love the colour of both) I was certain I didn’t want red in my wedding. I always thought red for weddings looked a bit dated but then this wedding just jumped out of the screen at me on style me pretty this morning. It has completely changed the way I think of red and weddings. I still don’t think red will be the colour I chose for my wedding (I don’t think it would work with the Tuscan countryside as well as it does with San Francisco!) but I love how fun and modern this wedding looks. Another thing this wedding has changed my perceptions of is the use of pattern in bridesmaid dresses. I love these dresses, they’re the type of dress I would like to wear as a wedding guest.
