PORTUGAL WEDDING WITH SUCCULENTS | … so it’s awesome. Plus: The Day I Realized Everyone Has Seen Me Naked. | By Brancoprata

Honey let me know something moderately horrifying the other day.

“The most interesting thing happened on my way home from the Cleaners just now” he said, gleefully hopping into the bathroom like a child on Christmas morning.   “I could see you while you were showering.”

“See me? my naked body??”

DIY CHALKBOARD ‘N’ BIRCH WEDDING | ←THAT + VINEYARD = PLEASURE | Also, a real bride’s perspective on The First Look Argument… after having lived to tell about it. Aaaaaand my feelings on mustaches.

So, apologies in advance if this post gets a touch out of hand.

How’s your Thursday afternoon going – going well?  I’m also accepting “good!”  - see, no judgment here at TKB.  Yeah, so that was some intense blog post titling, eh, up there?  I’ve always wanted to write “bride lives to tell… [enter life-changing experience here]” or some variation on it.  Can check that off the bucket list now.  (Listen I’m not gonna sit here and say I’m proud of the items on my bucket list.)

Ok enough pleasantries, listen up.  I’ve been a proponent of chalkboards and birch in yo’ weddin’ for what, a year now?  Wait, what’s that?  Almost everyone is a proponent of those things?  True, true.  You got me.  You got me good.  Lemme throw something else atcha face then.  … Ok got one, howzabout this: I need the mustaches to come to a screeching {Continue reading…}

GUEST BLOGGER | A “Neutral Chic” wedding with POPS of color… and SUCCULENTS!! By Naomi of Enchanted Dream Weddings

When Alison asked me to be one of her guest bloggers while she’s away on holiday, I immediately said yes… then the panic set in.  Everyone reads The Knotty Bride; what could I possibly write to make it “knotty” enough?  Ah, then I thought, “I’ll do what I do best”…then I had to figure that out!  ;)

Of course, I immediately thought of wedding inspiration boards.  I love inspiration boards because they are the easiest way to reveal how colors will work together.  How many times has someone described to you a color palette and in your head it just did not come together, but, once you saw it on “paper,” you said “Wow!”  Trust me; it happens all the time.
