Oh you’re going to love this bridal blogger from the UK. We ran across her really cool site and just had to get to know her better. Enjoy our little tête à tête with Kat Williams of Rock ‘n Roll Bride!
Whoa gurl – we have been immersed in your blog since we found it – great ideas! Whatever got you started?
I started Rock n Roll Bride in 2007 when I was planning my own wedding for April 2008. I used it as an online diary really and a place to gather my wedding-related thoughts and ideas. I loved reading and the US wedding blogs throughout my planning and so when our wedding was over I decided to keep blogging and turned Rock n Roll Bride into a place to share fabulous, unique, alternative and rock n roll weddings and photography. I now run Rock n Roll Bride full time. It really is my dream job as I get to be myself!
Well, we sure love the fresh ideas – so inspirational for brides planning their weddings and for ladies looking for something a little different. You have readers worldwide, don’t you? Any thoughts about how brides are different from one country to the next?
Well what’s so great about the brides and grooms that I feature is that generally they want to buck traditions and do things their own way. I think it’s fantastic to see people being themselves on their wedding days and not conforming to what’s expected or tradition. However in saying this I love Indian weddings for the outlandish colour, gold and joy
Totally agreed. Indian weddings are absolutely splendid in the color and the tradition! Hey – pretend we’re sitting down for a chat with a newly betrothed (don’t you just love that word?) bride2be. What good advice would you share?
Get a good photographer – in fact the best you can afford. After the wedding is over, these will be your memories and you’ll regret it if your photographs aren’t up to scratch.
Go with your heart and be true to yourself.
However much you think you stress about a certain type of flower or shade of napkin in the run up, you really won’t care on the day.
Don’t spend money on stupid things you ‘think’ you should have.
You’ll be delighted to see what a touch of Asian flair can do to spice up your wedding celebrations. Just a hint here and a whiff there can add exotic elegance and excitement to your big day. And now you can top it all off with our personalized chopstick wedding favors (just thought we’d throw that in!) Here’s a little “Asian inspiration” board just for you!
Like? If you do, here are some fascinatingfacts we bet you didn’t know about chopsticks!
Chopsticks first appeared around 5,000 years ago
The first ones were probably twigs, used to remove food from cooking pots
By 500 A.D., their popularity had spread from China into Japan, Korea and Vietnam
Some believe that if you are given an uneven pair of chopsticks, you will miss a boat or plane (we measured ours very, very carefully, btw)
An old Korean legend has it that the closer to the end you hold your chopsticks, the longer you will stay married
It’s considered bad manners to rest your chopsticks pointed toward a dining companion (which is pretty tricky if you’re sitting at a round table)
Interesting, isn’t it? And just in case you need it – a YouTube chopstick “how to” video.
