Something different, but still cute

It’s been a wonderful few months filled with some out of the ordinary maps and requests. Amongst many wonderful ideas were a Cute Path version of a table plan, a wedding map inside the fascinating Eden Project biomes and a table plan full of pubs…

Ciao Bella! Margherita Missoni’s Wedding

85_4297066I know its an old one, but I’ve just gotta blog about Margherita Missoni’s wedding, which took place back in June 2012 in the small town of Brunello, Italy.

Every picture that I can find depicts the same really laid back, chilled out boho feel wedding party. Everybody is constantly smiling.

Margherita designed the dress herself, which was made by the tailor’s who had known her growing up (she also had close counselling from close friend Giambattista Valli.) The dress is cool and gypsy, and made from flower-embellished Missoni silk with voluminous organza sleeves and was totally in keeping with the relaxed feel to the day. Her hair was braided which kept her veil in place, which was swapped for a daisy-chain headpiece for the evening (as well as a blush pink version of her dress) and flat silver gladiator sandals. I know, it all sounds a bit odd doesn’t it? But look how well she pulls it off. All so natural, and not at all over ‘done’, which is why I love it so much.

For me the whole Missoni ethos is mismatched chic, colour clashing, highly patterned prints, very laid back, and generally has an extremely cool feel…which has been completely encapsulated in Margherita Missoni and Eugenio Amos’ day. Even the bridesmaids wore clashing print maxi dresses in various colours and ex French Vogue Editor Carine Roitfeld dressed up as a gysgy! So clearly this was the order of the day.

The reception looks truly amazing, and if the day ever comes (!) I will definitely be taking a few pointers from the styling here. Guests were entertained by a gypsy band, acrobats and a fortune teller and ate Moroccan style around low tables with Missoni floor cushions (of course) so luxe!

The cake was a heart shaped pastry covered in berries, the food was a ‘tuck in’ style with big bowls and servers on each table and the table fabrics and crockery were all Missoni. I’d like everyday of my life to be like that.

My favourite wedding to date.

Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

Another beautiful mood board for you to swoon over today. There’s just something about a bohemian wedding; the air of freedom, free spiritedness and uniqueness; all so inviting. And completely defies any pre-conceived notions of what a wedding should look like. I love the flowers, flowy dresses and wedding parties that just look so effortlessly cool; a definite essential for the bohemian bride. Enjoy these beautiful images and if anybody has any ideas on how to make a floral headpiece look so chic PLEASE let me know.
