A bit of inspiration from a fun, alternative bridal photoshoot : )

By ClayBouquetShop

I have planned to include alternative brides in my advertising for awhile, and finally had the opportunity to include models willing to have fun with this idea earlier this year. Here are some photos to enjoy…and possibly use as inspiration. : )

We had multiple outfits available for models, some more traditional than others, so many models appear more than once. The models had loads of fun in the wardrobe room changing from one outfit into another, accessorizing their attire, and wandering around Turkey Hill Inn for photos by the different photographers. : )

>A Tim Burton inspired wedding

Tim Burton is an inspiration to so many lovely quirky folks.  For a little spooky pizazz, think of adding items like these.

>EJPcreations – A Truly Unique Shop

>

I was so inspired the first time I saw EJPcreations Etsy shop. I had never seen anything like her creations before and I found myself reading every word of her descriptions and dreaming of a collaboration between her shop and mine.

EJPcreations‘ pieces are the perfect way to add a hint of steampunk to an otherwise “mother approved” wedding. The Artist calls her work “distressed imperial elegance” and “apocalyptic chic” but it could also be described as feminine yet industrial…or just beautiful.

EJPcreations specializes in tiaras, chokers, earrings, necklaces, fascinators, and hair combs with a noir, and gothic flair.” – EJPcreations Profile

>Truly offbeat ideas

>Part of being an offbeat wedding blog is accepting all kinds of ideas and lifestyles that don’t fit the mainstream ideas of “normal”.  We not only accept these wonderful differences we celebrate them.  Here are a few cool wedding products that do not fit into Barbie and Ken’s white wedding.

Groom and Groom Gay Wedding - 8 x 10 Archival Print
Groom and Groom Gay Wedding 8×10 print  http://www.etsy.com/listing/38320241/groom-and-groom-gay-wedding-8-x-10

Rosydesignsonline has super cute prints available in a his/his and hers/hers wedding options.  I think this would be a great gift.  I bet Rosydesignsonline would even create these into wedding invitations. 



Same Sex  Wedding Cake Topper - Signature Series
Same Sex Wedding Cake Topper  http://www.etsy.com/listing/55181281/same-sex-wedding-cake-topper-signature

Theenchantedcupboard creates all kinds of wedding cake toppers but these are my favorite.  I especially like that the couple is multi raced.  Completely custom varieties are also available.  

Gothic Tiara- A Stitch In Time of Neo Victorian Splendor
Gothic Tiara http://www.etsy.com/listing/54234798/gothic-tiara-a-stitch-in-time-of-neo



EJPcreations allows Gothic flare to come to life with this Neo Victorian tiara.  Handcrafted out of clock hands this piece would work for the Steampunk bride in the very best way.  Individuality is celebrated at this wonderful Etsy shop.
 

Classic 50s 4-Tier Tulle Crinoline 22 inches
Classic 50s 4Tier Tulle Crinoline http://www.etsy.com/listing/53336696/classic-50s-4-tier-tulle-crinoline-22

Swankunderpinnings has amazing style.  1950’s retro with today’s modern colors.  Any bride wearing this will feel special and unique.  I love the variety of color coordinating crinolines available.  Add a matching hair fascinator or sash from Swankunderpinnings.  Can you imagine how a vintage dress would look with this under it?  WOW!
