Mixing styles is also more than just released: rustic furniture with chic and vintage parts; colonial or Victorian parts with rugs or pads, colored or Indian tribal; furniture or parts with Provencal style with modern objects. Objects from the House of the couple as frames and books are great choices.

A classic revisited: the most traditional weddings remains white and green décor, the colonial or Victorian furniture. Real weddings bet in this combination and have no error.

Did you know? The most curious about why may be the “Month of brides” comes from the northern hemisphere, where the period marks the beginning of spring. As in the Middle Ages was virtually impossible to take a shower in freezing temperatures, it was hoped the month of may so that the shower was viable, in order to mitigate possible odors. In addition to the favourable temperature, may also is considered the month of flowers in the old continent, making it one of the most beautiful months of the year. So enjoyed the period to use flowers in the bath and in the decoration of the ceremonies, which later would lead to the tradition of the famous bouquets.
