Now Or Never- A Grey’s Anatomy Wedding

by | Bride, Celebrity Weddings


I timed this post so that everyone will have seen the episode (it only aired recently in Australia) After the wedding of Cristina and Burke, I thought it only fitting to write about the recent weddings on Grey’s Anatomy that caused a stir amongst fans.

Izzie’s well planned wedding for Meredith and Derek turned into a surprise wedding for her and Alex. With Meredith and Cristina in purple gowns, bouquets of roses and the stained glass church windows behind them, impromptu vows mirrored one of Alex’s patients speeches.

“Today’s the day my life begins. All my life I’ve been just me, just a smart mouthed kid. Today I become a man, today I become a husband.” Today I become accountable to someone other than myself. Today I become accountable to you, to our future… No matter what happens, I’ll be ready, for anything, for everything… Today, Izzie Stevens, our life begins and I for one can’t wait.”

Then of course, there was the sticky note wedding. Where between Derek and Meredith it came down to a piece of paper. Promises of loving each other when they’re old and smelly, of never running away, even when they hate each other were written on Meredith’s “Something blue” sticky note.

A variety of teas and champagnes and fruity white wines

Ribbons could be attached to this and taken in a swagged fashion to the extremities of the room – think a tented ceiling without the expense of the metres of fabric

-    Wedding cake iced in velvet yellow and picking up the pattern from your table linen, the lace in your dress, buttons  – whatever you see as the most special element of your reception décor, as the embellishment

Stormy Apricot Social

by | Bride, Inspiration Boards


I’ve been dreaming of soft apricot for a little while now and wanted to get away from the 80′s silk taffeta numbers and something a little more modern.

Summer seems a long time away today, but today’s board is for a beautiful, casual grey and soft apricot celebration by the seaside.
