3 books to help you plan your wedding

Boho Bride wedding inspiration from Stone Fox Bride

So you’ve got engaged, you’ve fallen down the deepest of pintrest rabbit holes, overwhelmed yourself entirely and then done acheived nothing for 6 months (sound familiar?) I get it, there is just SO much to think about. Help is at hand though thanks to these wedding planning books which will help guide you through all the big decisions so you can actually enjoy the wedding planning journey…..


Stone Fox Bride: Love, Lust, and Wedding Planning for the Wild at Heart

Definitely one for those who want to shun tradition, this is for brides who care more about their day reflecting their personality than being perfect. Think relaxed and effortless, boho-cool rather than the big white wedding and traditions up to your eyeballs! The book was a natural progression for Molly Rosen Guy who ran the the boho bridal shop Stone Fox Bride a 'anti-bridezilla showroom in downtown New york’ (her words!) Full of gorgeous imagery Stone Fox bride is a coffee table book I would have out long after i’ve said my vows.

Rock n Roll Bride: The ultimate guide for alternative brides

Needing no introduction at all, Rock N Roll Bride written by Kat Williams the curator of the magazine by the same name. Kat encourages you to stand out on your wedding day and let go of other people’s opinions ( there’s a pattern here gang!) Want rainbow hair and glitter when you walk down the aisle? Do it. This is one for the alternative brides out there, less boho and more tattoos, beards and bright colours.

Rock My Wedding

Rock My Wedding: Your Day Your Way

So there you have it, no need to pull your hair out stressing over your wedding day, use these books to inspire and guide you and make the whole process FUN, which is exactly what its supposed to be.
