Wedding Wednesday!

This first wedding is being posted because it's a sweet North Carolina wedding and I'm sure if y'all have to hear me say how much I want to go to NC one more time you'll want to slap me through the computer. (Well, I do! AND this was in Asheville!) I loved the setting of this entire ceremony! (via Ruffled Blog)





This second wedding is just precious! Precious, I tell you! It's sweet and just adorable and I don't think there are enough adjectives to go on! (via OnceWed)


This last wedding feature caught my eye just by the gorgeous hue of the photographs. Well, that and how darling the bride and groom look together! This is by far my favorite feature as the photography is just divine! (via RockNRoll Bride)



And the Weekly Wedding Question! What was (or do you plan on having) on the menu for your reception? Did/Will you go the traditional sit-down dinner with a full-course menu for your guests or are you more for finger foods? Or even more un-traditional with the candy bar? Did/Will you opt for a traditional wedding cake or is it more about the trendy cupcake tiers now? If you have a special diet (vegetarian, vegan, or straight edge), did your wedding reception follow that even for your guests who don't side with you? (For example if you don't drink, did you still offer alcoholic beverages to your guests? Or if you're vegetarian, did you have meat options for guests?)

My opinion: I was always anti-cupcake-tier-thingy, but I've seen some really well done ones. As far as a sit-down dinner, I'd like to have tables and all that jazz, but I don't think I'm all about the full-course meal! Mainly because you'll always have people who can't be pleased or ones who don't show up and that stuff is pricy! I would never personally go for a buffet-style thing, but I could see myself opting for a candy or sweets bar or even "finger food" type stuff. As far as the style of food, I'm not sure if we'd have un-veggie things there or not! Mike and I are both veg but our parents love meat. I'm sure we'd find a way to please everyone. We just don't have to eat it! Simple! Who knows though! I'm interested to see what y'all will say!

PS; Do you know of any wonderful wedding photographers, websites, or vendors that you believe deserve some recognition? Feel free to email me (or FormSpring) the details or links! I'd be happy to check them out for possible features!

  1. Justin and I are going to in-n-out for our wedding, it'd 1700$ and they feed 200 people! Insane right?

    That way its simple, and they have the vegetarian option for the same price :)

    We are also gonna have individual cakes on each table that my friends and I will bake, I'm super excited to make some cake stands with candle sticks and vintage plates.

    Justin wants every cake to have a different theme describing us, like one being disneyland, one being baseball, one being harry potter, etc.

    Oh man, talking about my wedding gives me wedding fever!

  4. All of those wedding photographs are great!! So pretty. I love the middle one, the bride's dress and show combo is awesome. <3

    I've never had a wedding, but my opinion is that you do what makes you happy. It's your day and you'll never please everyone. So just do it the way you've always dreamed of.

  5. I love your Wedding Wednesday posts. One of my closest friends is getting married in 18 months and I'm going to be a bridesmaid, so your posts make me super excited!

    I think I'd go for a buffet meal at my wedding, although it would probably be more finger food than full blown courses. I wouldn't want people so full they couldn't dance! And I'd have to have a tiered cake, with different types of cake to please everybody.

  6. The last dress is such a dream! So beautiful!

  7. I'm going with the wedding cake that is for sure! I love cakes over cupcakes. I would have to think about the alcoholic beverages, I don't want somebody getting drunk and acting like total idiot at my wedding but then again I won't be inviting anybody who would do that in the first place so yes I would. I would probably do the finger food style, for sure. And as far as the food goes I would have that (vegetarian, vegan) as an option for people. :)

    I love his stuff. I might be biased because he married my friend, but seriously, I love it!

  9. My fiance and I are both Vegan Straight Edge. We wont be serving alcohol or meat and dairy at our wedding. In my opinion a bride and grooms wedding day is about what they want, not everyone who will be attending. People are going to be there to spend time with us and witness us join our lives together, if someone doesnt want to attend because there wont be poison and dead carcass they can stay home. Ive been to plenty of weddings where there wasnt a single thing for me to eat and I kept my mouth shut and got food on the way home.
    Sorry if I seem harsh, but my fiance's father decided he wont be attending because we arent serving meat. Its rediculous and childhish.

    Im glad you are thinking about these things now.

  11. Hey! I love your blog...I read it daily! Anyway - At my wedding, we had lemon-pepper chicken, cheesy-potatoes, and honestly that's all I remember. We did make sure to have some food for our no-meat friends. I really didn't care what we had, I let my mom and mother-in-law take care of that...

    We were in love and had full intentions of being married when we learned that we were pregnant...SO we (really) rushed it along because we wanted to be married when she arrived! So the wedding was kind of thrown together in about a month's time and with basically no-budget. (It wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for some amazing "volunteers" from our church and my wonderful parents & in-laws!) It was beautiful but definitely not "perfect" per say. Although, it was perfect. Anyway, we had a full meal (cafeteria style, and the people who were serving up the food wore cute little custom-made aprons that matched our colors! -gold, black, & white-) but nothing fancy and nothing "traditional." We used gold and black plastic-ware. (Everything: plates, "silverware," cups, etc.) We used pretty damask(?) and polka-dot cupcake liners at each place setting with pretty little chocolate bows and other treats. We did not offer alcohol, as it simply wouldn't have been agreeable with either of our families... AND we did the trendy cupcake thing...however it wasn't for the sake of the trend. My husband doesn't care much for cake, but we both love brownies. We decided upon brownies but I really didn't want ugly pan-baked brownies. SO we made brownie cup-cakes in gold foil liners with pretty white frosting and a chocolate bow on top! (cupcakes made by my mom, bows made by my mother-and-sister-in-law, icing and decoration by me and my best friend!) If you're interested in our non-traditional, spur-of-the-moment wedding: click the link in my name. :)

  12. Hey Kaelah!

    Those weddings are so beautiful!
    My partner and I are actually planning our wedding now- (I've asked James of Bleubird Vintage to style us!) We're both Vegan and pretty staunch about leaving things that way for the reception afterwards. Since Vegan options in Houston, Texas are kind of odd...(Austin seems to be the mecca of Vegan food in Texas-) we picked the best Vegan Restaurant in Houston to do some appetizer dishes for our evening. We decided to have "She & She" Cupcakes- hers being Vegan Red Velvet, and mine being Vegan Oreo Chocolate Chip.

    We went against having a full-course meal, because we're going to have some punk bands playing- so our main concern is really beer, a great photographer, and having an amazing night.

  13. I just got married September 4th on Tybee Island, GA.

    It was a simple and happy little wedding. I loved it so much. Sunflowers in Mason jars, burlap table runners...

  14. The boutique hotel at which we are having our wedding has an AMAZING mexican food restaurant in it. So, we are having a build-your-own gourmet taco bar, chips and guacamole, and ceviche. There will be veggie tacos, even though I don't think a single guest of ours is a vegetarian. We're doing tres leches cake and churros for dessert, and offering mexican beer, sangria, and margaritas along with non-alcoholic beverages.

  15. i would love to have everything be vegetarian at my wedding but the likeliness of me marrying another vegetarian is pretty low. i mean, my boyfriend now is wonderful (and i'd love to marry him in the future but we havent talked about that quite yet) and he's very open to everything vegetarian and lets me cook him new things. so we'll see. i'd never want that to be only my decision and if i were to marry him and he wanted meat at the reception, i wouldn't argue his wishes because i love him, omnivore or not :)
    i think i'd opt for a buffet type of thing because that way, it's more likely that there will be something for everyone.
    i love your wedding wednesday posts. they make me want to get married so much even though i'm content with everything the way it is now, it's nice to think about what to do one day!

  16. When I get married, I want to serve just desserts. A big table with loads of different kinds of desserts; brownies, cookies, cake, cupcakes, tarts, flapjacks, fruit salad. I guess you could say I have a sweet tooth ;) I love your Wedding Wednesday posts, I'd love to sit down with you over a coffee (or dessert! lol) and just talk about weddings for hours =)

  18. We had buffet-style, finger-sized dinner of our favorite foods. Cake was 5 types of gourmet cupcakes that my mom and I made! Talking apple spice cake with chai icing, deep chocolate dusted with toffee bits, those kinds of cupcakes. Loved it. Ate on the leftovers for a week! lol.
