12 Days of Christmas – 11 Pipers Piping – Christmas Countdown Wedding Inspiration

12 Days of Christmas 11

It was pretty obvious that with the word “pipers” in the title of today’s inspiration, I simply HAD to make it in to some kind of scottish inspiration. I am a proud Scottish-Canadian, and my father was an immigrant to Canada, so the relations between the land of gingers is strong between my family. From tartan kilts, to heather, castles, thistles and pale skinned red heads everything about this majestic land screams incredible weddings and amazing architecture, history and scenery in to one big visual bang!

I would encourage everyone to go visit the highlands of scotland, and see how wonderful this rocky and amazingly lush country scotland really truly is!

12 Days of Christmas – Ten Lords a Leaping – Christmas Countdown Wedding Inspiration

12 Days of Christmas 10

There is not much that you can do with the Ten Lords a Leaping, but I drew some inspiration for myself from Lord & Taylors Wedding Style, which is usually always black tie. This turned out to be really fun, and I have officially fallen in love with the black and white simplicity and elegance that this inspiration became.

I love the fun textures but also the high class that can easily come together for a fun and youthful but still tasteful wedding. I hope that you love it as much as I do!

12 Days of Christmas – Eight Maids a Milking – Christmas Countdown Wedding Inspiration!

12 Days of Christmas 812 Days of Christmas 8 pt

 

My My MY! I loved working on this inspiration that I did it double the length! I have always been a HUGE lover of teals, blues and china, so when I started putting this inspiration together I nearly died of happiness! Today’s lyrics to follow are ” Eight Maids a Milking”, and can you find where I drew inspiration? Up at the top left is a lovely teal milk jug, and I realized I just had to follow through with teals. Once on pinterest, I quickly found the beautiful blues and teals were such a popular trend in 2012, and because it just started this past year, you know it will continue to be strong in 2013!

My particular favourite of this entire inspiration is that GORGEOUS gown at the bottom! Haute Couture Christian Dior has never looked finer in my eyes! Over all, I hope you learned how fun and easy any wedding can be, but it will always have the touch of elegance. After all…. It is a wedding!

12 Days of Christmas – 7 Swans a Swimming – Christmas Countdown Wedding Inspiration

12 days of christmas 7

 

There is always something stunning about a beautiful pure white wedding. Today we got a huge amount of snow in Metro Vancouver, and it has tainted everything white. I can’t seem to tear my eyes away from the beautiful big flakes floating down from the sky and making everything look a whole lot more like Christmas! Today I spun those 7 swans a swimming in to one of my all time favourite ballets: Swan Lake. I believe that white weddings are appropriate all year long, and I am even planning a wedding for a client that is happening next august that is all white!

I hope you enjoy this wonder white dream ballet inspiration, and hope that wherever you are, you too will get a light dusting of snow on December 25th. Just so you can frolic and play!

12 Days of Christmas – Six Geese A Laying – Wedding Inspiration Countdown

12 Days of Christmas 6

Day six of our wedding countdown brings us feathers, feathers and MORE feathers! This beautiful wedding accessory, whether it be for your hair or your bouquet, can virtually go with any theme! I am a lover of feathers because it reminds me of Forest Gump, feather aisles, and Bohemia. Forest Gump, of course, has a very special place in my heart as I watch it every year with my family at Christmastime. Who knows how the the tradition began, but it has lasted now for many years. The last word, Bohemia, is also a special word to me, as I have always loved bohemian weddings, in all shapes and forms. I have a deep appreciation for the simplicity yet intricate nature of a Bohemian Wedding, and have longed for a bride who wants a candle lit night wedding in waist high fields of wild flowers. Who knows, but perhaps it comes from my own name’s meaning: “Dancing in Fields of Flowers”…

With bohemian firefly nights far away from us in the cold and dark of winter, it seems appropriate to take those six laying geese and tie them into this stunning gypsy bohemian feathered wedding inspiration! Sigh…. only a few more months till sun my friends!

12 Days of Christmas – Five Golden Rings! – Wedding Inspiration Christmas Countdown

12 days of Christmas 5

 

Gold and Green are two of the easiest pairings in history, especially at this time of year. Throw in a couple of gold rings and what do you get? A wedding! Today I focused on finding subtle greens and golds that work well together as a team and separately, but must work in a wedding environment. I love this rich green, which I believe will be big in 2013, as mint had it’s moment in 2012. An easy way to incorporate gold and green in to your every day life is to pick up a fresh wreath (or make one, which is even better!) and grab some gold glitter, and spray it to give it a christmas-y glow!

12 Days of Christmas – Four Colly Birds – Wedding Inspiration Countdown

12 days of Christmas 4

 

Colly Birds are probably the hardest thing to find in a wedding, as most people do not even know what a Colly Bird is! I won’t lie, I too had to do my research and find out exactly what this fine little birds are. They are actually a lovely black bird, and as soon as I saw them the doo doo doo’s of The Beatle’s “Blackbird” started to play in my head. I find that birds are a significant in any wedding, as they are a representative of freedom.

Above is a take on colly birds in a very glam purple and black wedding: really stunning at this time of year!
