Vintage Mantilla Veil | Bridal Wedding Inspiration

I couldn’t resist posting these beautiful shots this morning; inspired by good friends of mine who are getting married this weekend at stunning Kleine Valleij in Wellington – this amazing vintage-inspired veil is enough to make any bride shine.

On my wedding day I wore what is called a ‘cathedral’ veil – because it’s long enough to drape on the ground. Not quite Lady Diana or Princess Catherine – but stil, it was long! But it was truly beautiful. I think veils can make such a statement as part of your outfit on your wedding day. That’s not to say go wild and go massive (think Josie from Married to Rock), but rather go stylish, go elegant and go beautiful – short, netted, full length, chin length…you name it!

This beautiful embroidered veil below has had mantilla and beaded detail delicately added to the veil, adding a little weight and a lot of prettiness. Something like this would look amazing on a simple figure-hugging dress or something with a slight fishtail skirt. Have you got any tips on veils? Been a bride or planning on getting married soon? Let The Good Girls Guide know your inside tips, tricks and clever ideas. Happy Tuesday!

Sheet Music Boutonniere | Whimsy Wedding Inspiration

We all love weddings. If you’re a savvy Good Girl, you probably jump for the bouquet, eat the cake, dance all night and celebrate loudly with the bridal couple. It’s ok – we all do it!

Although I’m already married, it sure hasn’t stopped my browsing the web for beautiful wedding inspiration that I can oogle over and share. Girls, the theme, decor and colour of your wedding is the most obvious indicator of who you and your groom are as people (let’s hope it’s not all pink, who knows what everyone will think of him!), so it’s your chance to really go wild and be creative!

I found this incredibly unique idea as  replacement for the traditional ‘white rose buttonhole’: a sheet music boutonniere! How incredibly creative, and it makes your groom and his best men stand out from the crowd in a big way. And just think of what else you can do with this idea just a small part…

Any other ideas on a whimsical and musical theme for a wedding? Post your ideas below & share the love.
