Ever wondered how you could incorporate your love for 'The Sound of Music' into your big day? Look no further! I am excited to announce that in September 2013 I was married in the beautiful country of Austria, and included lots of Sound of Music themed wedding details along the way!
Get Married in Austria
If you're a huge fan of 'The Sound of Music' what better place to tie the knot than in the beautiful country where the Von Trapp's were from? I got married approximately 2 hours outside of Salzburg, with the beautiful Austrian Alps as my backdrop :)
Brown Paper Packages Tied up With Strings
All of my wedding invitations went out in brown paper packages tied up with strings, after all... these are a few of my favourite things :)
Traditional Austrian Dress
My wonderful photographer offered to wear her traditional Austrian dress while she was taking photographs, which will add even more to the Sound of Music theme!
While I could have decided to do 'girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes', for the bridesmaids, the colour scheme of my wedding was actually purple (grooms decision). So instead I decided to take after Maria and make / design the Bridesmaid dresses, just like she made the children 'play clothes'. A big thank you goes to my mum who spent hours sewing each of these beautiful dresses together.
Just like Maria, I chose a big wedding dress that looked simply beautiful in the pictures!
By the Lake...
In the film, the Von Trapp house has a lake behind it, which Maria and the children fall into at one point! While we didn't take the plunge into the water, we had fun taking photographs by the lake, which was just by our wedding venue and nestled in the Austrian Alps.
I loved every second of my wedding day, but my ultimate favourite part was our first dance. A friend of ours played and sung Edelweiss live on the guitar while we danced. After the first few words, all of our 100 guests joined in singing too! It was truly a magical musical moment that was better than anything I ever could have imagined. Having this as your first dance is a great choice for any Sound of Music fan!
