Wedding Nouveau

One of the great things about Wedding Nouveau is that it doesn’t just focus on traditional weddings but also introduces readers to the different styles and combinations that can come from inter-racial and cultural weddings. It features a great combination of various styles, ranging from an inter-racial classic barn wedding to an inter-cultural east Indian/Mexican fusion wedding. I think this is great as it really helps to not only inspire you but also smooth over any worries you may have. I know for sure that a few of my family members who have had inter-cultural weddings definitely had a few worries about trying to combine both of their countries traditions. For example when my British uncle married his Latvian wife, there was a lot of stress over not only merging a few different traditions together but also figuring out how to hold the ceremony in two different languages, this blog really shows how this is possible and how greatly successful such weddings can be.

If I had to choose 3 words that best describe this blog, I would go with appealing, sophisticated and easy. This blog is simply really easy to follow. What I really loved about this blog when I first read it is its professional and eye catching styling. When you first arrive at the page, your eyes are automatically drawn to all the photos. Unlike many other blogs, this one doesn’t follow the scroll down styling but has thumbnail pictures, which when clicked on take you to another page, describing the wedding in much more detail. This is great as it’s a really easy way to visit the entry about a wedding that actually speaks to you. Simply click on the picture that first catches your eye and your away.

As you can see from the image below, the amount of pictures on the page doesn’t make it look messy though, the monochrome background with the geometric picture layout make this blog look sophisticated and professional whilst also making sure its super easy to find your way around.

If, like me, you find yourself reading this blog and thinking that it reminds you of a magazine website, then you too are right! This blog is actually printed in a magazine format which you can buy straight from their online shop. If that’s still not enough for you, follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even YouTube as well!

This blog is not only a place of inspiration though, it also provides the details and links to the websites of many people involved in the wedding as well, such as the make-up artists, florists and the jewellers that were used etc. This is great if you live in the same area as these people, for example NYC, which is unsurprisingly featured quite a lot.

There is a fashion and décor section, a colour palette gallery, a selection of wedding invitations (I would have to go for the Oscar De La Renta ones of course!), an online store, a hard copy and all the inspiration you could desire when planning your big day. What more could you wish for really?
