GUEST BLOGGER | ‘Postcards and Pretties’ | City vs. Country Weddings!

Hello Knotty readers… I’m Chris from Postcards and Pretties and I’m so honored to be a guest blogger on The Knotty Bride!  Today I would like to share with you two completely different weddings that share a similar color palette of magenta and gray.

The first wedding takes place in New York City {representin’ Alison’s hometown} possibly a city hall wedding with a small reception to follow with a few family and friends.  Centerpieces of potted orchids decorate an airy space and in lieu of a traditional wedding cake… pink frosted cupcakes are served to the guests.

City Board: couple on the bridge {simply bloom photography} piano {this is glamorous} escort cards {martha stewart weddings} bouquet {the knot} orchid centerpiece {martha stewart weddings} chalkboard {design sponge} pink cocktails {martha stewart weddings} white utencils and tufted couch {this is glamorous} hydrangea centerpiece {brides} cupcakes {my little things}

The country wedding is sweet and a bit rustic.  A garden shed makes a great backdrop for this outdoor wedding that is surrounded by potted flowers.  Bridesmaids will hold hand-tied bouquets wrapped with magenta ribbon and pashmina wraps are available to keep the chilly air at bay.  The homemade cake is as simple as this wedding.

Country Board: greenhouse {country living} bride {d magazine} garden utencils {kiss the groom} ice cream {tartelette} potted plants {martha stewart} peony bouquet {poppies and posies events} cake {oh joy} bouquet wrapped with velvet ribbon {country living} violets {martha stewart weddings}

So tell me: what are your thoughts on these two distinct settings?  What would you say is more your style?  I’d love to know!

xoxo!  -Chris of Postcards and Pretties

    Well i have to say that these two boards are great! As a city girl i would have to say the first one…it's modern without being to minimalist, has a certain romantic feeling about it, that is way I love it!! … but the second one… it's so appealing, so romantic, so country chic… I would probably get married twice and have a go on the two boards!! Great post Chris!!

    the country style wedding is definitely more my style…the sweet, simple cake is SO me and the steps holding the potted plants along with the sweet bouquet are JUST gorgeous. Not to mention the fact that the use of pink is my fave color. the inspiration boards you put together are JUST brilliant. thanks for sharing!!

    What I absolutely love about this is that the same basic ideas can manifest differently in different spaces. So I guess the moral of the story is, find inspiration anywhere and everywhere! Thanks for sharing.

    Tough one for a city slicker like me. I love both boards (because I ♥ Chris) but I would have to go with the first. It's cool and sleek without being cluttered. Hard choice but I would have to go with the first….I'm from New York City… then again there is very little country left in me from living in the south so board # 2 is appealing to that side. DECISIONS! Great post and from some of my fave bloggers!

    Love these so much! Chris, you are so creative:) Both boards are beautiful, and though I feel I’m a bit of a mix between city and country, I think I lean more towards country.

    I thought of you this weeeknd when I went for drinks at Bowery Bar…they always have a huge row of barrels filled with lemons in the middle of one of their dining areas: a bright and sunny touch to an otherwise gloomy and rainy afternoon!
