Country weddings have been a big trend as of late with Pinterest and wedding blogs constantly uploading county inspired themes! One of our recent clients who we had the pleasure of designing their wedding invitations, celebrated their wedding in 2014 with a vintage, country inspired theme! This post is a sneak peak from Cassandra and Ryan White’s special day.
Tell us a little about the proposal and the lead up to the wedding? Ryan proposed in the lounge room of our house that we bought together. We had been together for 7 years when we got engaged. We knew what we wanted for our wedding and decided to wait to save up. 2 years after the proposal we had the wedding of our dreams.
What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme / vibe? Our wedding was very vintage/country inspired and very relaxed
Favourite detail and/or moment of the day (besides becoming husband and wife of course! or Wife and Wife, or Husband and Husband!) It’s hard to pick, the whole day was pretty perfect. But I loved the car ride from the church to the reception as we got to have that private moment on the day for just the two of us.
Did you undertake any DIY projects, if so what? My little sister, one of my girlfriends, my dad and I created our centerpieces as well as the place cards. My Dad created a sign that said “Mr and Mrs White”, and a friend of ours made our cake.
Any family or religious traditions incorporated into your day? My dad and I have a beautiful photo of me and him from his wedding to my step-mum, and we made sure we got the same photo at my sister’s wedding and then at mine.
What does marriage mean to you? Promising to never give up on each other.
Talk to us about your dress, where is it from? How long did it take to find? I had an idea in my head of what I wanted and was lucky enough when I found it in my local bridal store after about 2 months of looking. It was lace, tight fitted and it was perfect.
Advice for other couples planning a wedding? Plan everything well in advance. If you think you have plenty of time…you don’t! And just enjoy it. At the end of the day, no-one cares what your dress or cake looked like, as long as you’re both having fun, everyone else will too.
