real wedding : elisa and daniel

Today we have the first of two gorgeous peacock themed weddings that we are going to share this month. Held at the Tega Cay Golf Course in South Carolina, Elisa and Daniel's big day was big on colour and fun.

A bold shade of dark turquoise tied everything together, in all the little details from the groomsmen's ties and bridesmaid dresses, to the table decor and chair sashes. Such a stunning shade especially when combined with crisp white.

And of course there was a pretty peacock feather motif for the day. Elisa and Daniel chose one of 'i do' it yourself's printable peacock posters  - each guest signing their name inside a feather. They even had a peacock feather guard of honour as they left.

A big thanks to Seek Joy Photography for their beautiful photos.

To kick off the new year we're going to take a look at one of the most popular party themes ever - we've done it before (March 2012) with a more elegant vintage vibe. But this time we're going to embrace all the colour and fun of a peacock party!

pantones pick for 2013 : emerald

The pantone colour gurus have done it again and released their pick for the 2013 colour of the year - emerald. We think this gorgeous shade of green, which we call jungle, shines best with tones of tiffany, fresh green and cream. Team it with on trend graphic shapes like the chevron pattern for a fun and fabulous look.

We've noticed quite a lot of our northern hemisphere friends busy planning October wedding at the moment. So while it's still so cold down under we thought we'd look at an autumn / fall wedding this month.

garden fete

Summer might be over here in Australia, but it was such a rubbish summer, we thought lets bring a little spring back to the blog. So our theme for this month will be Garden Fete. Bunting, sunshine, outdoors and a few easter eggs too. Keep hopping back to check it out.

Colour pallet: berry jam, lemon, sushi and grass

real wedding: Laryssa and Sharyn

We are coming to the end of the month so we're wrapping up our pretty peacock party theme. Earlier this month we showed you Keri and Tanner's elegant and classic peacock wedding. Today we have the second gorgeous event to share, Laryssa and Sharyn's beautiful outdoor country wedding shot by De Nueva Photography.

The setting was calendar house, an historic farmhouse in NY state surrounded by acres of orchards and farmland. Laryssa and Sharyn chose a peacock theme for their day, with plenty of beautiful blue and turquoise shades.

White table clothes were given a rustic touch with the addition of hessian fabric squares in the centre and pretty birch vases filled with wildflowers. A scattering of sparkly blue and green sequins added that hint of peacock glamour.

Laryssa's Ukrainian heritage was celebrated with the custom of a candle lighting and shared bread and wine before the reception. The girls wore the most beautiful floral and ribbon head pieces for this part and shared a bread called Korovai, which is traditionally severed instead of a wedding cake. It looked fabulous decorated with ribbons, but sweet tooth's didn't miss out with a delicious cake being served later too.

Laryssa and Sharyn asked all their guests sign their ketubah by adding a fingerprint to the custom peacock designed by 'i do' it yourself. A lovely way to involve guests in what was a truly beautiful wedding day.

grass cakes

Adding grass to your wedding cake might sound a bit odd, but as we showed you in the last post, it's pretty good when the grass is made from icing! Here are a few ideas to inspire, each with a different take on edible grass.

1. Hand painted wheatgrass on white fondant with butterflies and little dots, via the knot.
2. If blades of grass isn't your thing, how about grass green icing and deocrate with little spring flowers. Via Southern Weddings.
3. Fondant cake with gum-paste grass and sugar blossoms from
4. Inspired by the first cake, this version shot by Mod 4 photography has additional edible leaves, birds and piped on grass.

DIY project: grass cupcakes

Here are two great ways to add a touch of spring to your wedding with grass cupcakes!

Option one - paper cupcake wrappers. Really simple to make, especially when we've got a handy free cupcake wrapper template for you to download. Just print the template onto some green card stock, cut out and finish with a grass edge punch. Here we have used a Fiskars punch but there are plenty of others to choose from. Just wrap your grass around the cupcake and secure with a little double sided sticky tape.
Visit the 'i do' it yourself shop to download the free basic cupcake wrapper template.

Option two - icing! Using a number 233 icing tip and a good deal of green food colouring, you can transform your cupcakes into little patches of grass. Beki Cook's Cake Blog has a lovely tutorial and even shows you how to add cute bees and ladybugs.

a vine romance

A vineyards can be the perfect location for a wedding so if you're thinking about tying the knot in a winery, raise a glass in celebration of this months theme. With so many beautiful venues to choose from in the Hunter Vallery, the Barossa and more, no wonder a wine themed wedding is so popular in Australia.

real wedding: Leesh and Sam

I'm so excited to share todays beautiful real wedding from Angelica Peady Photography. I have a bit of a soft spot for Watsons Bay, being my wedding location last year, and this couple transformed it into the perfect Mexican fiesta! Full of colour and fun - and of course fabulous details.
Pretty papel picado fluttering in the breeze decorated the venue along with cactii and vibrant flowers. Each bridesmaid wore a different dress in a bold, bright colour. There was even a piñata! Enjoy the eye candy.
