This couple handcrafted their entire wedding…Insane DIY ideas! Their cute dog was their Videographer.

When wedding photographers Cathy and Sebastian decided to tie the knot, they knew what they wanted. The couple got married in August last year and from the get go, the one thing that they focussed on was to enjoy the entire process and on making everything they needed by themselves!

Says Cathy, their wedding was relaxed, DIY and focussed on their friends and themselves and their Pinterest mood board was their main source of inspiration.

Cathy and Sebastian’s wedding ceremony was unique and was neither religious nor civil.It was guided by their friend Oscar who played a game with all guests singing an old song from their childhood called El Anillo (The Ring). Between each verse, their closest friends would read something to them and the song would continue.Then at the end, they exchanged Vows and Rings!

The catering was from Roberto Galvez Banqueteria, but amazingly by the guests themselves. Guests brought along desserts, salads and other amazing dishes to create a potluck. After lunch, guests grabbed a blanket and created a massive picnic dessert area of sorts.

If their wedding wasn’t already unique enough, the cherry on the cake was added by the bride’s homemade dress and the fact that their pet corgi, Leica was the videographer 😀

“We made almost everything by our own hands. We silkscreened table cloths, made concrete chandeliers and did all the floral arrangements. Also, we hired and hung all the Tuscan light bulbs and the pendants at the venue. For my wedding dress, I had bought a dress from Modcloth, but it didn’t fit me so I redesigned it with my friend Natalia. In the end, we only kept the top of the dress and were very lucky to find the same colour in a fabric store in Santiago for the bottom. I also made my headpiece with some crin flowers (a technique that uses horse hair to make the flower shapes)” says Cathy

The couple saved money by picking a venue which had never hosted a wedding before. It was a risk but luckily it worked out!

“The best thing about planning our wedding was being together, doing things for our friends and knowing that everybody was going to have such a good time that day”, she concluded. “The worst thing was not knowing who was going to be there or not, right up until the last minute we had guests confirming if they were coming or not!”

They advise future brides and grooms to try to enjoy the whole process. Enjoy every single thing about the wedding day, even the things that go wrong.

The laughter you’ll have together about it, days or months after the wedding, is amazing.

In retrospect, there was nothing they could have done differently. It turned out better than all that they thought it could be!

The D-Day Beckons: Groom Trends this 2014

Grooms don’t have it easy with the style choices they have to make for their wedding day. There’s always that extremely fine line between chic and overdone. This is even more true because there’s a sure-fire guarantee that your better half will look like a million bucks. So to make sure you look the second best on your wedding day, here are a few ideas trending this 2014.

Colours

Who says jodhpuris and tuxes need to be boring? This wedding season, adorn yourself in daring whites, beiges, or pastels, and get some for your groomsmen too. However, if you’re old-school and still wish to go the conventional way, have a pop of colour in the form of a shocking bowtie or satin scarf on your chest to break the monotony of your black or grey suit. Liven up your outfit with a splash of color, and show your bride that fun side of you that she fell for in the first place.

Patterns

If you’re looking to go all out on your style quotient, pick a checked or striped suit for your big day. Again, if you’re practicing restraint, yet wish to opt for something trendy, go with a patterned accessory to spice up your ensemble. Some trending patterns are the glen check, windowpane, herringbone, houndstooth, bird’s eye, checked plaid, and nailhead. Pick one as your theme or do a mix and match of several of these patterns for your groomsmen; either way, you’re bound to steal the show!

The Tailcoat

The trend of the decade has been to get back to older trends, and the tailcoat is back with a vengeance. If you’re planning a truly high end affair, you may as well do it right by looking the part too. Ranging from black and navy to grey, this Victorian classic can be incorporated into a wide range of wedding color schemes too.

The Nehru Jacket

Nothing speaks trendy and classy like the Nehru jacket. Most suit jackets or sportscoats follow the same basic cut principals, but the Nehru jacket, made famous by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, can easily be distinguished because of its dignified mandarin collar. Sport this with matching or oddly paired trousers, and create a style statement along your journey down the aisle or to the mandap. This jacket is also a great pick for cocktail receptions, sangeets, or other light-hearted festivities.

Accessories

If you’re the groom or one from his party, the accessories you pair with your wedding suit will be as important as the suit itself. Let your personality shine through with your own customized accessories to enhance your look. Wear a vibrant-coloured pagdi with your sombre jodhpuri, or have your groomsmen wear a distinguishable accessory such as a beret or bowler hat. Whatever you do, do it with style!

So to all the grooms out there, don’t let your breathtaking brides steal all the thunder. Keep some aside for yourself. Show her that you can match her and equal her in every aspect, that you truly are soulmates. Have a good one!
