Lisa’s Bridal Style
We loved Lisa’s very on-trend lace mermaid style wedding dress, which was embellished to perfection with feather accents. Our version of this dress is the La Sposa ‘Mirra’ gown, which has a more pronounced silhouette, while still retaining its soft and feminine feel. It has similar feather embellishments, notably on the bust-line, but adds some extra glamour with a silver diamante brooch just below the bust. Our choice of footwear comes in the form of Rachel Simpson’s ‘Agnes’ peep-toes. ‘Agnes’ are available in white and ivory suede, and are tied in a soft satin bow and accented with a metallic silver fan-shaped leather detail.

Lisa’s pale pink and white bouquet was made by the amazing Stephanie of The French Touch, and we’ve chosen another of her stunning creations – with added red berries and rustic-style foliage – to suit our mood board! Finally, the couple chose some very unique wedding stationery to set the tone of their day, and we think this custom-designed invite by The Parlour Press is a great way to add some personal style, and a little bit of whimsy, to our palette.

Lisa describes her wedding theme as ‘vintage-meets-rustic’. We achieved this look in our moodboard through very similar decor ideas. We loved the half-cork name card stands that greeted the guests and showed them to their seats, which you can do easily by cutting your collected (and donated) wine corks in half and carving a small slit at the top for the name cards – don’t worry if they’re not perfect, perfection is the opposite to rustic style! Vintage-style birdcage centrepieces create an earthly feel to wedding breakfast tables, add some colour with some wildflowers and a pillar candle or two.
Lisa and Dan’s wedding cake was a very elegant white three-tier with a flower embellishment. This version is a one tier but we think still has that elegant, understated and rustic impact required!

Lisa and Dan’s bridesmaids wore very flattering knee length charcoal grey dresses with different styles of nude shoes and gorgeous diamond drop earrings. Our high street version of these is an aubergine ‘Melissa’ dress from Reiss, priced at €205, and similarly striking pearl and diamond earrings from Diamant.
