Thoughts on Wedding Magazines

Okay. I'm not gonna lie. I have always dreamed of this moment. When I was little I was obsessed with these glossy magazines that showcased the most beautiful princess dresses. I then quickly realised that I had to marry someone to wear one and promptly dragged my friend Ben to the playground in school the next day and made him cry by demanding that he married me. Unfortunately, he was already betrothed to Sophie so I had to find someone else. Thirteen years later I found someone to do it without even asking or making them cry haha. 

I would also be lying if I didn't have a Pinterest wedding board ( who doesn't these days, and if you say you don't we all know you have a secret one!). I am pretty proud of my board and I would love to have everything on it. 

Anyway back to my magazine. I actually forgot about it until three weeks into my "engagement period" (is that a thing?) in the early hours of the morning when I couldn't sleep and realised and yelled, "Omg I haven't bought a wedding magazine yet!" To Mat who was snoring away next to me oblivious that to this very important matter and that I had also whacked him with a pillow. 

So I strode, yes strode, into WHSmith the next day and stood in front of the selection of magazines. Who knew there were so bloody many! I picked up about five and was then told off by Mat as he realised they were five pounds each! I selected two, a magazine for untraditional weddings and a local one to Chester and Liverpool as I thought that would be a logical decision. Smart Nicole.

I adored this magazine. The ideas, the couples, the themes! Insert all the heart eye emojis! I love the alternative wedding spreads and how they prove that your wedding doesn't have to be traditional to be, well, a wedding. It was so eye opening and the inspiration was flowing whilst flicking through all the beautiful pages.

How beautiful are these two piece bridesmaids dresses? I Love how pretty they are and how different. I would never have thought of something like this in a wedding but this picture is proof of how it works. I also love the idea of an all green bouquet. After viewing these images I envisioned the same for my wedding but I think I need a bit of colour in mine.

The couple above in this photo had their venue/ photos taken at a botanic garden! Inside the greenhouse! The pictures were stunning and I wish will be lucky enough to have a beautiful/quirky wedding venue.

I love the idea of adding a bit of colour to a wedding dress and how gorgeous is this idea? Unless the hem is lifted it is unnoticeable. Very pretty but subtle. Also top hats? Hell yea!

Man buns and tattoos? Although I'm `not brave enough for this style of wedding I still adore it!! I think a bride who still shows her tattoos on her wedding day is the real deal! I don't understand the girlies who have them covered up for the day.

Have you read this magazine? Would you have or did you have an alternative wedding?
