    Rustic Wedding Vibes: how to get it right

    married couple in field

    Whether you're a country girl at heart, or you just prefer a relaxed, back-to-nature vibe over dollars and diamantes, a rustic-themed wedding could be right up your road.

    If you're starting out on your wedding planning journey, it's easy to incorporate a rustic theme into your venue, and then build from the ground up - start out with an original barn, heritage building, winery or farmyard field, and add wildflowers to your bouquet and wooden tables without linen. But if you've already locked in the nearest surf club and you've still got your heart set on the rustic vibe, never fear: a few well-chosen decorations and bonbonniere can give any venue the laid-back, rustic country wedding vibe of your dreams.

    How to include your fur babies in your wedding day

    For some couples, no nuptials would be complete without including their favourite four-legged, furry member of the family (and no, we're not talking about Aunt Edna -- think instead the one with the waggly tail). If your pampered pooch, feisty feline, or even precocious piglet is a must in your wedding day celebrations, we offer the following tips to make sure you don't go barking mad.

    1. Propose with your pooch

    Some grooms say they included their furry friends in their proposal because they thought it would increase their chances of getting a positive response! They don't call them man's best friend for nothing. All jokes aside, if your furry sidekick helped your groom pop the all-important question, chances are this may reserve them a spot i

    Top 5 destination wedding locations

    These days everyone wants a destination wedding. Why make the fun end after only one day, when you can gather your nearest and dearest together for a week-long celebration of you and your betrothed?

Others are guided by more practical concerns; will it be easy for my guests to travel to and from this location, is there ample accommodation, can we be legally married in this part of the world? Whatever your motivation or practical considerations, our top five destination wedding locations have something for everyone:

    Wedding Flower Mistakes to Avoid

    The Knot asked top wedding florists from around Australia for the most common mistakes brides make - here's what your florist wishes you knew.

    1. Not communicating with your florist

    When choosing a supplier you must pick one who you feel you can openly communicate with, and who you feel understands the overall look you are trying to achieve. This means that even if all the flowers you always wanted are not in season they can achieve the look you want. They understand textures and colours more than you realise, and as they also know what flowers are available at different times of year, they can use material you never would have considered together to achieve the most beautiful displays. - Hanna Evans from Brides in Bloom Briohney from Plumbag
