I Love New York Guest Book – Magpie Moonshine via Etsy


I love a quirky and unusual wedding idea; they add individuality and flair to your day and can be fun and memorable for you and your guests. However, there are some classics that you just can’t beat.


Although there are some amazingly creative guest book ideas out there, if you like the written word then there’s nothing more lovely than a traditional hardback book filled with sentiments and well wishes from your nearest and dearest.


Guest books are a great way to record the lasting memories from your special day. Reading through all of the heartfelt, encouraging messages after your big day is a really special moment, making the custom of a guest book a wedding must-have in my opinion!


Check out these destination wedding guest books from our favourite online store Etsy for inspiration….

Engagement Shoot – Rustic Americana

Kaitlyn & Ryan   ♥   Texas, USA

Photographer:   jFairchild Photography


Today’s engagement photography epitomises the style of love shoot that I enjoy to share on You Mean The World To Me (and hopefully that means it is the kind that you love to see too!).


Engagement shoots have become so popular in recent years but the ones that really stand out succeed in capturing the essence of the personalities, expresses their individual style, and are set within surroundings that have meaning and represent something of the couple. Of course amazingly artistic photography, unique and characterful locations, and a cool (not to mention beautiful!) couple all helped this engagement shoot to be worthy of the pages of a glossy magazine!


Engagement shoots are a special gift to treasure; they capture the memorable moments before you are wed, but they are also probably your first (and quite possibly your last?) professional photographs of you as a couple, beyond your wedding day pictures. Having relaxed, less formal photos of you as a pair is certainly something to cherish and I’m quite sure that Kaitlyn and Ryan value this stunning shoot of them – by the talented Jen Fairchild – immensely. Anyway, here’s Jen to tell you more…

Wedding Theme Inspiration – Vintage Travel

Calling all destination brides-to-be! Today’s seriously stylish shoot was created by the experts in luxurious wedding and event planning Lavish Wed, and shows you how to add perfect hints of a vintage travel wedding theme to your big day.


The oh-so-talented team from Lavish Wed, along with a group of stylish suppliers, created a destination-wedding themed backdrop with a vintage-twist. Cute calligraphy messages were scrawled on maps and old pictures, battered suitcases were stacked high as a display area and antique lace table cloths, colourful cut glassware and tall tapered candles provided a romantic finish to the table setting – this is DIY-done right!


Beautiful bouquets and fabulous flower crowns the shades of a sunset, provided bright pops of colour and just the right contrast to the delicate vintage details, all captured to perfection by Arina B Photography.


There is so much wedding pretty to share from this styled shoot that the second part will be coming up this afternoon – you don’t want to miss it, there’s even a hot air balloon involved!

Engagement Shoot – Have Love Will Travel

Desiree & Michael   ♥   California, USA

Photographer:   Lauralynn Photography


If you’re considering capturing some of your special moments before jetting off to your destination wedding, today’s adorable travel inspired engagement shoot has plenty of steal-worthy ideas and DIY details.


Desiree and Michael are getting hitched in the heat of the Dominican Republic and to start the celebrations they headed to the airfield to capture their special pre-wedding moments. Cute paper planes, colourful globes and their darling daughter all added to the charm of this sentimental shoot.

Laura says:

“Desiree and Michael are a boho, travel loving, free spirited couple who are getting ready to jet set to the Dominican Republic for their 2014 Wedding.  Our session was travel inspired to say the least! The cute planes and props didn’t steal the spotlight off Desiree and Michael’s enduring love though. They love to travel and most of all make memories; memories and photos that tell their story. Marley, their adorable little fashionista, is right along side them, ready to share in the adventure too. I’m excited for their journey!”
