Hello, loves! Today we’re sharing some delightfully rustic inspiration in the form of a rustic fairytale wedding theme. But first… I recently went camping and my almost seven-year-old niece taught me a thing or two about fairies. At the campfire, she looked into the woods and pointed at brief sparks of light. These sparks – lightning bugs, naturally – are not lightning bugs. They’re fairies. Acorns? Fairy hats. Holes in the tree? Fairy houses. Moss? Moss is just moss. (I thought – pixie dust! – but she informed me, “No, Aunt Emma, that’s just moss.” Bless her heart.) I wanted to share that story to remind you that a wedding theme can be ANYTHING you dream it to be. A fairytale wedding doesn’t have to be all Cinderella carriages, castles, and crowns. If you’re an eco-bride, would prefer a position as princess of the woods vs. the ballroom, and you need some serious inspiration for a unique wedding theme, you’ve come to the right place. Today we’re sharing an exclusive Enchanted rustic fairytale wedding shoot by a stellar team of wedding pros with photography by Jessy Carté. So, without further adieu… let’s get started!

Good morning, loves! I blissfully awoke this morning to the sound of birds chirping, a light breeze lofting through my window, and a bright, sunny, cloudless sky. In a word? Perfection. I love this time of year – it’s wedding season! – and I am fascinated by the beautiful, nature-inspired accents found in many Real Weddings today. One of my favorite themes to date is a bird themed wedding, a popular nature-inspired option for couples. Today, we’re bringing you three new bird themed wedding finds to inspire you as you sip on your coffee and ease into your day. So, if you’re ready to begin, we kick off the list with a pair of ultra-sweet love bird chair signs. Enjoy!

When I browsed the online shelves of the aptly named Everything Ruffles, I was inspired by the sheer loveliness that ensued. Ruffle flower girl dresses, ruffle baby outfits, and even ruffle bridesmaid dresses for women who love the look! Now, I know for a fact that I can’t pull off a dress with pink ruffles (despite my attempt this past weekend at a store with a very lovely, Carrie Bradshaw-esque pink ruffle dress with a sash) but one in a more subtle shade (like chocolate brown or blue) might do! Check out these ruffle flower girl dresses (and bridesmaid dresses, too!) to inspire your upcoming wedding… and, as a sidebar, I love how the dresses are paired with cowboy boots for that rustic (yet girly) feel without being over the top. Enjoy!
