The "Bad Girl" Wedding Cake

We have another yummy post today, Rebels! And today, we are excited to share with you the details of our cake collaboration with Sugarplum Pastries. We reached out to Lovely Jiao of Sugarplum Pastries a couple of months ago, to work on a 'bomb' cake idea. We've seen their work before and just really loved their creativity. And we wanted to see if it was possible to make a black cake that would look like chalk doodles were written on it. Lovely fondly calls this cake, "The Bad Girl." Which is such a cute and fun name, and something you would definitely NOT expect a wedding cake would be called lol.  

Party of 35: An Intimate, "Adults-Only" Wedding

Rebellious Couple Ally and Marc are a tough pair, indeed. And we mean that in an admiring way. To be able to pull off not just an intimate wedding with only 35 guests AND to make it into an "adults-only" affair takes a whole lot of guts. And we mean A LOT of guts. Because there are moms that are sensitive to these kinds of things (ie. there's moms who are particular about kid-friendly places and events, and don't like their kids being left out). So we truly are amazed at how "courageous" Ally and Marc are. Ally is like a guest blogger today because she wrote an amazing article on their wedding already. So we'll let her tell their story in her own words. Enjoy!

The Ultimate 10-Day Iceland Honeymoon Itinerary

My husband and I have been to Iceland twice, for a total of  21 days, and 80 hours worth of road trips around the island. By no means are we Iceland experts because I feel like we’ve barely scratched the surface. But I’ve been asked to do customized Iceland itineraries for about several times now, so I figured it was time to make my most comprehensive, and most highly recommended Itinerary to experience Iceland’s most iconic locations. This itinerary can be used for a honeymoon trip, a wedding photo shoot trip, or maybe even the wedding itself, or an anniversary trip. It’s up to you!

15 Awesome Ways to Incorporate Geometric Details

Geometric weddings have been all the rage in the past few years.  It is the perfect aesthetic for couples who prefer a more modern and contemporary design. Symmetry, interesting shapes, and clean lines are fun to add in a wedding because it creates some sort of balance between feminine and masculine details. And this being a popular theme, Pinterest-worthy pegs are already looking the same. How many times have you seen a geometric-shaped jewelry box with flowers inside it?

Here are 15 unique ways to incorporate the geometric feel in your wedding in more ways than one.

Why Vogue Calls This Patagonia Wedding An Affair That Will Be "Difficult To Top"

Vogue was quite smitten with this wedding. So smitten that they posted it on their official Facebook feed maybe twice or thrice, and called it a wedding that would be "difficult to top." We all know that Vogue is the holy grail of fashion, style, and everything in between. So for them to adore a wedding like this, well it really must be quite something. Find out why through these photos.

Wildflower TV Wedding

Hello dear Rebellious Brides! Today, we are super excited to have this feature on the blog today. As this is the very first feature post that we have for our new category, "RB Fashion." A dedicated tab on the blog that will be solely focus on Bridal, Groom, Entourage, and Guest wedding style ideas. And with a bridal black gown situation in our midst, there's no better time to start this new category!  So shall we begin?

"Rising Tide"

For almost one year, the blog has been silent. But you guys never faltered. Views are up. Support from the wedding industry is overwhelming. Social media is at a turning point. 

One of these days, we will share with you the honest-to-goodness reason why we kept silent for a year. But for now, let us tell you that we are back with a vengeance. 

For a year we've been figuring out how to evolve the blog. And one of the things that we wanted to do is to expand the categories that we can write about. For one thing, RB Mica and I are exploding with more ideas that go beyond the usual wedding features. And on the other hand, we realize that other wedding details get lost in templated features which is not fair to makeup artists, or florists, or even the caterer. We also understand that you guys WANT and NEED to know more about these details. And that's really the reason why we've come up with a plan to develop new categories in the blog. Here's a rundown of the categories that you will be expecting:

All things wedding styling for brides, grooms, entourage, and even guests

All things related to makeup, hair, and skincare for before, during, and after the wedding

All things related to wedding menus, cocktails, cakes, and everything yummy in-between

All things related to wedding bouquets, styling, tablescapes, invites, DIYs, and all the other details you want to add on your big day

All things related to honeymoon ideas, destination weddings, shoot locations, and other trips 

And we will still have our current categories on features, concepts/ideas, and of course our infamous controversial write-ups (which we haven't done in a while but we have some eyebrow-raising musings coming your way)

And all the content for these categories are going to be expanded on Instagram and Youtube 

Along with these categories, we will also be changing the blog design soon. For now, we just wanted to announce that we will expand the blog's content and you will see the blog evolve over the next few weeks and months. 

It took us a year to finally push through with this idea. One of the hurdles was the fact that we wanted a total overhaul of our blog and brand right away. Which we are now understanding, is not necessarily a good thing because you tend to overthink and delay things and you miss out on the "now" and being present. The thing is, we've actually always had these types of content since we launched in 2011 but it just wasn't archived or deliberately communicated that way. At the end of the day, we've always been a personal blog, and with personal blogs it's inevitable to see the raw evolution of the space. It's more real, authentic, and intimate that way. So we are dropping the idea of a big overhaul and just keep churning out content as we slowly transition. So join us in this new journey, rebels. It's going to be one helluva ride once again.

PS. The title of the blog is also a foreshadowing of more things to come *wink*

In this new category, we will develop exclusive content that will focus on wedding style ideas for brides, grooms, the entourage, and even the guests. So stay tuned, rebels! Exciting times ahead. And what could be a better way to introduce this new category by finally publishing, our long overdue designer spotlight on bridal gown designer,  Poppy Dover. Shall we begin? 

Outdoor Indoor Engagement Sesh

Meet Yss and Mike. Self-confessed adventurers. They even got engaged during their hiking trip in Nepal. They wanted to incorporate travel and food into their engagement session but they knew all too well that expectations can be very different from reality. Especially since hiking and diving can get sweaty and messy. So here is their clever solution!

We are officially on Pinterest!

 Hello everyone! 

Just a quick blog to tell you guys that we now have an official Pinterest account. Long overdue, right? Okay, so to be honest, I am personally not a fan of Pinterest. I think that it actually confuses and overwhelms the bride even more. But we were quite surprised---actually the correct expression might be *I'am shook* that the blog has been pinned thousands and thousands of times without us even knowing it. And it just makes sense to really adapt, be open to new things, and to connect where you guys want to connect with us, right? 

On our Pinterest Boards you will find specific categories that we love and care about. And we will curate and carefully edit it in the best way that we can, so that it can really fire-up your own creativity.  We invite you to check out our Wedding Agency board because this is where we will share the custom-created wedding concepts that we have developed for our clients in the past. 

And we will try to update these boards as regularly as possible.  Promise!

Here's the link! Let's connect on Pinterest!

We Can Be Heroes

A Rebellious Bride who allowed for her groom to wear a Batman mask on their wedding day is a bride we would definitely want to hang out with. Paloma is one such bride and more. The bride wore two wedding gowns on her wedding in Madrid, Spain.  One of the gowns was her grandma's vintage nightdress deconstructed with satin and lace. And the other she handcrafted along with her friends from Spanish brand Suma Cruz. The boys from the wedding party were allowed to wear Spiderman outfits  -- and let me tell you, there's nothing more a little boy would want to do during a grown-up party. This wedding was full of love, life, and laughter in the most effortless way possible.

It's always heroic when two people have the courage to get married--but it takes super heroes to make the wedding rebellious.

Salud to Paloma and Edu!

Honeymoon Idea - Hurawalhi, Maldives

Over the next few weeks and months, you will probably notice that the blog will gradually undergo a few changes in terms of look and content. And one of the things you will definitely see more of, is a separate category that will focus on Travels (RB Travels) -- and by that we mean, travels that are still related to weddings such as honeymoon destinations, engagement and wedding travel photo shoot locations, just to name a few. 

Goth Elopement

Today, we are excited to share with you this thrilling collaboration editorial shoot, shot on location at Sedona, AZ. The team behind the shoot includes photographer Brittany Hogan, hair and makeup artist Katie Turner, decors by Weddings4Rebels (love that name!), and flowers by Butterfly Petals (full credits listed below). 

A Vow Renewal at Pont Neuf

Is there any other city in the world as romantic as Paris? You can feel the love and romance from every street--from the cafes to the flow of the river Seine. You can just feel it tingle in every fiber of your being. So it just makes perfect sense to get married in a place like Paris. And do you really need any fancy ceremonial arch and all the fluff when you already have Paris as your wedding backdrop? Nothing can quite compare to this city in its most organic scene, no matter how expensive your wedding styling could possibly be.
Marie and Alex did just that. For their 10th year wedding anniversary, they decided to do their vow renewal in Paris, at Pont Neuf no less.
