I love seeing good editing in a wedding video! Paperback Weddings does a fantastic job putting together the loveliest parts of this English wedding into one short 11 minute video. My favorite part is the during the vows with the vignettes of the bride and groom mixed in.

I love this idea of replacing placecards with caricatures of your bridal party. If you’re having a small number of wedding guests you could do everyone’s caricature! In the photo below, the bride did all the drawings. I recommend asking the artist in your family or group of friends to help out.

Parasols and fans are pretty additions to a wedding. They provide shade, are decorative, and make great props for your wedding photos. Check out how fun the parasols look in Christine Chang’s photos below!

There are so many different ways to have mismatched bridesmaid dresses and still maintain a cohesive look. The example below is definitely one of the best looking ones I’ve seen in a while. Even though the colors are all very different from one another, they still keep consistent the long flowy hems and the chiffon-like material.  I also love the flowers in the hair!
