I'm back with more details and photos to tell the story of my special day! If there's something that I haven't covered, or if you need any kind of advice or have any kind of question, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer!
Here we go:
The Dress: My dress was Pronovias and it truly was my dream gown: it has this beautiful embroidery, a gorgeous train, this vintage-like lace and a perfect shape. I felt like a princess wearing it!
The Veil and Headpiece: I chose a long, silk veil but I only wore it during the church ceremony. For the rest of the day, I only wore a hair accessory, custom made by Lorelai. My hairstyle was pretty simple, and that headpiece was the perfect choice to complete my look. I thought it looked amazing with my backless gown.
The Shoes: The shoes were Sepala, by Mihaela Glavan. I really loved the details and I ordered them before actually finding the wedding dress. But I knew they will be perfect for the look I was going for, and they were. They were also very comfortable, which is essential for every bride, but was even more important for me as I don't usually wear heels!
The wedding rings: Our wedding rings are super simple, golden, from Polello. Mine has a small, delicate diamond. As for the inscription, we chose not to write our own names. Instead, we wrote "My Precious" (we couldn't help it, we are big LOTR fans :P).
Groom's outfit details: Alex's suit was custom made by Tudor, and it turned out beautiful. My favorite item form his outfit was the tie from Urban Neckers that had an adorable print: pink flying pigs (it was a mockery of what all our friends used to say to us- that we would get married when pigs fly- an "in your face" kind of deal :P). All the groomsmen and our godfather wore the same print on their bow ties.
That first look...goosebumps! :)
Bridesmaides and Groomsmen: After I said YES to the perfect dress, I started looking for the perfect bridesmaids dresses. I wanted a dress that they could wear even after the wedding. And I found the perfect ones in one of our fellow bloggers' collection: My Silk Fairytale. The dresses turned out perfect! The color matched Alex's suit, and the lace was very similar to my wedding gown. The girls loved them and they looked beautiful! And what about our groomsmen's James Bond-ish look? Pretty hot, huh? :)
Flowers: Since it was an autumn wedding, I chose seasonal colors and flowers for the bouquets and the centerpieces. My beautiful and very talented friend Gina helped me with all the flower arrangements and I was beyond thrilled with the results. If you want to admire more of her work, you can visit Studioul de flori.
Wedding theme: My wedding theme was travel. Both me and my husband are travel enthusiasts, we love to explore the world so it seemed like an appropriate theme for our special day. After all, marriage is going to be the most exciting journey of our lives.
Place cards/ Menus: It all started with our wedding invitations, that you can see here. The amazing team from Red Wedding helped us with the invitations, place cards and menus, and also with these bridesmaids boxes for my girls. I absolutely adore their work and I recently saw some previews of their 2015 collection... Gorgeous! You can check out their Facebook page to see for yourselves!
The wedding favors: Delicious biscuits from The Cookie Vault in the shape of stamps and famous buildings form my 3 dream cities: London, Paris and New York.
The wedding cake and candy bar: I was honored to have a Cookie Jar cake at my wedding (you can see our excitement in the photos below :P). The super talented Anca Feodor designed the perfect travel themed cake and it was absolutely delicious: chocolate ganache, mascarpone moose, meringue and raspberries- yuuuumy! As for the candy bar: I think the pictures are pretty relevant! :)
Decorations: For the seating plan, we had a world map made by Foam Bubbles, and every table was a city. Then we bought these cute postal cards from Carturesti and hand-wrote every person at the tables. We didn't have table numbers. Instead, every table had the name of a city, and the name was written on these cute props shaped as cars, planes and air balloons, that were integrated into the fower arrangements. The props were made by Anita's Letters.
Music and the wedding dance: Our wedding dance song was: When I need you, by Rod Stewart. We had a pretty complicated choreography :), but our dance instructor was amazing so we managed to do a good job! We also had a group dance, with our friends, on Michael Jackson's Thriller. It was epic!
We had a live band, Friends (loving the name, btw). They were amazing and made sure everybody had a wonderful time!
In the end, I have to thank our amazing photographers, Irina and Robert from Cromatica for offering us these amazing memories! Seeing these photos once again was pretty emotional! I loved every minute of that day and I'm so thankful to my friends and family for being there for me during that roller coaster of a day!
I hope you guys will enjoy this post and once again I encourage you to ask any kind of question :).
