Looking for something totally different for your wedding? Two Latvian students created this swan wedding dress made from thousands of paper leaves. This particular dress was created by 20yr old Dana Jasinkevica with 21yr old Dita Enikova for a fashion exhibition in the ‘‘Centre Gallery” shopping centre in Riga.
This super simple but extraordinarily beautiful wedding featured on Glamour & Grace took inspiration from the rustic surroundings of the venue, La Provence Restaurant in Roseville, California. The bride’s theme was simple Californian style and a lot of re-purposed bottles, burlap and succulents were used in the décor and flowers.

I think this is a way more personal idea than getting their name tattooed into your skin.
* Sakurako Shimizu has a range of jewellery with various expressions and can also make custom jewellery

When people talk about weddings, they usually talk about what the Bride will be wearing, what everybody will be eating or where the blessed event will be held, but what about the guys?
