This week, when I was looking at images, I stumbled across a beautiful photo of some Converse with the wedding date embroidered into the back and it just made me smile. Now I know that wearing Converse at weddings isn't necessarily new but sometimes it's not about doing new things, it's about doing things that suit your personality, doing things that guests will see, link to you and say "Yes, that's so them". Because that's when you know you've got it right. If guests are sitting not being able to make the connection between you and details, you've gone wrong somewhere.
So, if you're a bit like me, you'll love these images and if you've got another 'love' then I hope this post might get your thinking about ways to incorporate your 'signature dish' into your wedding...
Above - this is the picture that made me smile. I love the subtle addition to the Converse - the date is just embroidered onto the back, it's not big deal, it's not flashy, it's just there and even if no-one else notices the stitching and they only see the shoes, the bride & groom will know the detailing. You could wear those after the wedding or have the stitching done in blue for a cute & quirky 'something blue'. Image - JAC Photos
Above - another image to make me smile and I can't decide what it is about this pic that really gets me, I think it might be the slightly childlike stance - so good adults can still be big kids, even on their wedding day! Here, the delicious raspberry Converse with the couple's 'new' married names are embroidered onto the back. Such an adorable detail. Image - Lee
Above - way better than stag or hen party t-shirts! How fab are these shoes for your weekend with friends? Love the co-ordinating colours, love that the groom is a little special and love that the date of the do is on the back. A great way to bring everyone together and a great gift for everyone to takeaway. Brilliant! Image - Volatile Photography
Above- just had to finish with this image. There's something in me that just adores the idea of looking all glam and sophisticated on the outside with a hint of cute and quirky underneath. Perhaps because I know that as much as I'd be working the Choos for the ceremony, come the party I'd be on the dancefloor in my Converse too because if you can't be yourself on your wedding day, when can you?
