Celebrity weddings to look forward to in 2013

In just three weeks we will welcome the new year and with it the most anticipated weddings of 2013!
I  have compiled a little list of  some of the most exciting nuptial taking place in the next 12 months, and remember to comment which one you are looking forward to the most.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt finally popped the question to Angelina in April this year. Why did he take so long? Well apparently he spent a year designing the perfect ring which features a diamond of the finest quality that has been cut to an exact custom size and shape to suite the actress’ hand. The pair have recently picked up their wedding rings and according to rumours they will most likely tie the knot at the beginning of the year. Do you think they will get married before award season begins?

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

Justin Theroux got the best birthday present he could have wished for when his girlfriend Jennifer Aniston agreed to be his wife on his 41st birthday.
The couple celebrated their engagement with a star-studded party in Los Angeles. Many say that they are going for a very low-key affair, with only 50 guests invited. Do you think we will get to see her full wedding look this time? Remember that when she married Brad Pitt they only released one wedding pictures!

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick

After several months of rumours, Jason Trawick finally popped the question to Britney Spears exactly a year ago. According to several sources Britney and Jason were planning on having New Year’s Eve wedding until rumours of a break-up surfaced last week. Britney was quick to deny it. Do you think they will be ending the year with a bang?

Keira Knightley and James Righton

The happy couple became engaged in May after 15 months together. The actress recently revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that she still hasn’t started her planning, a wedding summer?

Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne

Elizabeth and Shane announced their engagement in October 2011 and revealed to HELLO! they plan on having to weddings, one in the UK and another in Shane’s hometown, Australia. We don’t know when it will take place, but we sure know where to see the incredible pics, in HELLO! Magazine for sure!

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Since becoming engaged in June, Miley has revealed several details about her future nuptials. She has  revealed she will be having just one wedding, not three as previously reported, and that it has to be perfect. Will this wedding be bigger than Britney’s?

Royal Weddings 

  • Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Chris Oneill

Just when we though we couldn’t enjoy another royal weddings for years, three pop up! Princess Madeleine’s mum, Queen Silvia, announced that her youngest daughter would be marrying boyfriend Chris in the summer. No official date has been set yet, but it will be one to watch as most of the European princess will be attending.

  • Prince Felix of Luxembourg and Claire Lademacher

Prince Felix’s brother, Prince Guillaume, has recently tied the knot, so he will be able to give him plenty of tips to make his big day special. No date has been set, but something tells me that we are going to have a very busy royal summer ahead of us!

  • Andrea Casiraghi and Tatiana Santo Domingo

Since announcing their engagement during the summers several dates have been mentioned, but no official one. Now that Tatiana is pregnant with her first child and is due in January, many have pushed the date to next summer, but many believe it will take place in March. What are your thoughts?

Which wedding are you most looking forward too?

Original ways to carry your wedding rings

There are many ways to make your wedding original and one of them is by swapping the usual wedding ring cushion for a fun, quirky and personalized creation.

So if you still haven’t decided this small detail, then here are some ideas that could work for you or atleast inspire you!

 

All photos from Pinterest

There are tons of creations to choose from and most of them can be made at home! It’s just a matter of wanting to do it and obviously having  just a tiny bit of imagination.

As shown in the picture below, you can take your rings in wonderful boxes. You could even carve your initials and wedding date on the exterior of it. It will be a box to keep forever, always reminding you of your special day.

 

You can also create mini books that carry the rings inside. It could be a book that has a special meaning to you or your future husband or just a favourite bestseller. If, for example, you are having a country wedding, why not opt for a crystal box with grass inside like the one shown below? And for a summer or beach wedding, why not carry your rings in a shell?

 

As you can see there a hundreds of options to choose from, these are just a few and my favourites. I will keep posting more in the near future so keep an eye out for the next post if these ideas have not convinces you!

Has one caught your eye? Will you be swapping the usual wedding ring pillow for something more original?

Honeymoon destination: Amsterdam

Amsterdam might not be a usual first choice as a honeymoon destination. It might not seem romantic, which was my initial thought, but I was wrong and I want to prove to you why. This option is perfect for couples who are planning a trip around Europe or are looking for a short city break!

I had always wanted to go to this city, not because of it’s smoke-filled cafés or the red light district, but because of the cute gabled houses and the endless canals. The days leading up to the trip my future fiancé and I researched and researched and made sure our four days in the Dutch city were complete from early in the morning until late at night. That’s how we like it!

As soon as we arrived we knew we were going to have an incredible time. We went mid October, we were lucky because it didn’t rain and it wasn’t that cold, meaning we could cycle and walk all we wanted, without worrying about the weather.

So what can you do to make this trip a perfect honeymoon destination? Well, you can rent a bicycle and explore the long cobbled canal streets, including the amazing Jordaan district, home to many art galleries, shops and restaurants. You can also discover the city’s largest park, Vondelpark, which at this time of the year is covered in brown, yellow and orange autumn leaves, very picturesque!

Best of all, you can hire a boat just for you and your partner, (like we did) and explore its more than one hundred kilometres of canals. We used Hertz and it was probably one of the best experiences ever. It was so romantic it was actually embarrassing at one point, people would take photographs of us as we past by, but it was worth it. We had blankets to keep us warm, a piece of cake and enough hot chocolate to survive the two hour tour.

To top of a romantic day, there are tons of restaurants to choose from, I highly recommend one in particular which can either work for lunch or dinner, The Pancake Bakery, which obviously offer the BEST pancakes in town. The place is very cosy, cute and has dimmed lights… just perfect!

If I still haven’t convinced you with the above, then maybe you should travel in spring time and add to your itinerary a visit to the region’s famous tulip fields which are bursting with colour.

 


Have you been to Amsterdam? Did you think it was romantic?

Celebrity inspired wedding guest: Diane Kruger

I love Diane Kruger. Her style is always impeccable. I think if I raided her wardrobe I would not find one single piece of clothing that I did not like. That’s why I have chosen her best looks to inspire future wedding guests ahead of the big day, especially with the sales just around the corner.

I have selected several outfits that she has worn over the last year and that could work for a winter and summer wedding. Hopefully you will be inspired by them!

Winter Wedding

Just because temperatures might be below zero, or it may be pouring down and snowing it doesn’t mean you have to cover up like a polar bear. Diane still manages to look elegant and chic! For the switching on of the Christmas lights along the Champs Elysees, Paris, the actress braved the French cold in a lovely thick olive coloured dress and high boots.

My favourite look has to be the third one, where she is wearing a very sexy double strap blue lace jumpsuit from Jason Wu and a cosy leopard print coat.

Long dresses

Diane is mostly seen with long dresses. Some are a bit over the top such as the ones she wears to big events like the Cannes Film Festival or the Oscars, but others are much more low-key and could fit in perfectly in a wedding. Above are my top picks! I love the middle blue dress as I find it very sexy!

 

Short and colourful dresses

These dresses are perfect for spring and summer weddings. They are very colourful and the perfect length. Strapless, with sleeves or halterneck… take your pick!

Bridal looks 

Diane Kruger can even inspire brides, she sometimes favours white dresses for her red carpet events and they are so elegant and chic that they would be perfect for a low-key wedding or civil ceremony.
