The Rebel Wedding

It’s a nice day for a white wedding, but this bride is more likely to have a moody-hued colour palette for her big day. The bride and groom are not going to follow tradition any more than they follow the beat of someone else’s drum. They’ll probably opt to have their reception at a brewery or aeroplane museum. Instead of a colour scheme, they may have a wedding theme based on the couple’s favourite book or movie. One thing is for certain, you will never forget the rebel bride’s wedding.
