From the beginning of a wedding day to the end, a brides routine can become a bit chaotic. There’s a timeline, and the hustle of getting around. But maybe we’ve got it all wrong – and maybe slowing down is a better way to enjoy a wedding day.

From Portugal and the styling mind of Splendida Weddings comes this inspiration for a brides day – based on Wabi-Sabi: the art of imperfection. Knowing how to find and see beauty in the imperfect and pay attention to the simple pleasures that are easily overshadowed by the chaos and excesses of our society. That seems like a good platform to us to start a wedding day preparation from: simplicity with a bit of grace.
