Inspiration Blog | Secret Garden Theme.

We have seen a lot of different themes over the years.  And we absolutely love it when a couple chooses a theme that matters to them and goes all out!  When it comes to wedding themes, your imagination is your only limit.  {Well and maybe your budget lol}

Today on the blog, I wanted to share a Secret Garden Wedding Theme.  And of course, we picked a gown from OUTW that we think would be perfect for this theme.

Let's dive in!

The reason that I love the theme of Secret Garden is because I love the mix of whimsical and romantic.  Like this cake table created by Selah Vie Weddings + Events.  I love the mix of cupcakes, cakes and macaroons made by Bright Eyes Cake Design.  Photography by Dylan Martin Photography.

I love the soft hues of these colours together.  And I love the return of gold accents in wedding decor and wedding planning.  Photograph from Pinterest.

We love these centrepieces for a secret garden wedding theme.  Simple, yet beautiful.  As a big book reader, I love how they incorporated old books and how it gives a nod to classic, olden days.  Photograph from Pinterest.

These invitations from The Paper Bride, which are available at Once Upon A Time Weddings are the perfect addition to any garden wedding.  I love the florals mixed with the navy colour.

The Secret Garden Theme is the perfect theme for mix-matched bridesmaids.  We love these colours together and they still give you lots of colour choices for florals + decor.

We adore this gown which will arrive to OUTW in August.  We cannot wait for brides to try it on.  We love the lace details and how it has a touch of lace underneath the tulle skirt.  We think it's the perfect combination of whimsical and romantic, just like the Secret Garden theme.

Bridal Inspiration - Enchanted, Woodland Themed Wedding.

Today, on the blog, I wanted to share some inspiration for a woodland or enchanted themed wedding.  Themed weddings can be a lot of fun & they give your guests the opportunity to attend a wedding that's a little outside of the box.  It's easy to incorporate a theme into your invitations, decor, colors and more!  Get a little creative and you'll LOVE the results.

We've had a few brides in the store lately that have been getting married in a forest.  We simply adore the idea of a woodland, forest, enchanted affair and so we searched through pinterest to find some of the best ideas for you.

The backdrop of nature is beautiful all on it's own.  You can do simpler decor & let the outdoors speak for itself.

Again, let the beauty speak for itself in simpler, bright floral bouquets.

The perfect gown for an enchanted wedding is something simple and flowy.  We adore this lace gown with pockets.  It would look amazing with a small belt with a bit of beading or all on it's own.
