You know that phrase “go big or go home”? Well, if you’re going to put that saying to practice at any point in your life, it might as well be your wedding day! You’re only doing it once, so might as well make it memorable, right? Today’s gorgeous couple, Irina and Jacob, definitely had that phrase in mind when they planned their glamorous pink and white wedding day. From the bride’s beaded and ruffled wedding gown to their elegantly decorated reception, they really did go the extra mile!
The best part of all, though? Their intimate ceremony in the Royal Botanical Gardens at Melbourne. It was a simple picnic-style ceremony outdoors underneath the traditional Jewish chuppah. We love how they balanced and intimate ceremony with a full on party at their glam wedding reception — definitely a trend we can’t wait to see more of!

We’ve put together a list of our top tips and trends for spring weddings, so now’s the time to get bookmarking and pinning if you’re going to be a spring bride!
