How to keep your relationship central

I have said this so many times already, it feels like it has become too obvious to mention again, but planning a wedding is a lot of work. Even when you want to keep things small and simple, you will soon realize that it entails more than you might have originally thought.

Every once in a while though, you need to realize that you are planning this wedding because you have found someone whom you would like to spend the rest of your life with, and spending some quality time with just the two of you will be a welcome break in the planning process.

Rustic Winter Wedding Inspiration

When it comes to styling a winter wedding, there are so many directions you can go. You can opt for a more traditional Christmas-style wedding with lots of white, a touch of red, with red Christmas berries and holly. Or you can opt for a minimalist Scandinavian style with white on white, geometric shapes and marble touches. Or you can go with the style displayed in my Dark Rustic Winter Wedding Moodboard, and use lots of black and white, touches of green by using eucalyptus and some gold touches in the cutlery and on the stationery.
