Look #6: Offbeat Bridal Inspiration

We did it – we made it to Friday and saved our absolute best look, for last. I just couldn’t be a part of a bridal inspiration styled shoot that didn’t have offbeat brides included. If you have read my blog for a while then you know [because I often say it] that I am just crazy about Offbeat Brides.  The Original Offbeat Bride blog/tribe was my bible when I planned my own wedding. I love seeing brides [& grooms!] that dare to be different, take nerd chic to the next level, and overall have a TON of fun.

That being said, Leanne absolutely rocked our Offbeat Bride look. Hot pink hair? Check.  Tattoos? Check. A non-floral bouquet? Check. A polka dot wedding dress? Check… and it just keeps getting better from there [especially considering the amazing graffiti wall we found behind Longview Gallery].

Introducing some seriously offbeat wedding inspiration to the Washington, DC area … our Offbeat Bride, Look #6!

My favorite poster – maybe because I wrote the content? Or maybe ’cause I just love the mismatched fonts, and the bright pink & orange colors?

i love the dramatic smokey eye that Bridal Beauty Associates put on Leanne. LOVE

a bride with tattoos … my favorite

Leanne rocked my offbeat tulle & ornament bouquet [which my mom lovingly made]

Some dude was watching us during the shoot and Leanne shot him this look. hilarious.

What do you think of our tattooed, offbeat bridal inspiration!? Did you love it as much as I did!? Can someone in Washington, DC please have a wedding like this … please!?


  1. I love it! She makes me want to go dye my hair pink right now. And if you had told me about a polka dot wedding dress, I might have been like “eh” but seeing this, it’s totally awesome. This is so fun!

  2. AH! This is AMAZING. I love this look so much. And those eyes – she’s absolutely stunning!

    Bree/Abby/Bridal Beauty Associates: You totally rock. This week’s set of shoots/looks were so, so fabulous and off-the-charts awesome. <3

  3. This is so fabulous! I love the poster, and it’s difficult to tell but is that a “hidden Mickey” watch? Maybe I’m just too Disney obsessed, but I could swear it looks like Mickey! ^_^

  4. I love the bouquet with the dress…it looked great….you are still my favorite off beat bride….love u
