Movie Monday: Sweet Home Alabama

Young Melanie: What do you want to be married to me for, anyhow?

Young Jake: So I can kiss you anytime I want.


Sweet Home Alabama has warmed our hearts from the first movie scene to the last. This movie, starring the charming Reese Witherspoon, was about the sophisticated Melanie Carmichael, rising New York clothing designer who suddenly finds herself engaged to the city’s most eligible bachelor. But this is no fairy tale romance for Melanie. She has skeletons in her fashion-filled closet that include Jake – the backwoods husband she married in high school who refuses to divorce her. Determined to end their marriage and sever all ties with her past once and for all, Melanie returns to Alabama. But home starts to tug at her heartstrings, and what she thought she wanted may not be what she wants at all. (IMDB)

Rich with Southern style, this movie will make your country-lovin’-hearts giddy. Think of a relaxed, “backyard” wedding surrounded by your family and close friends, lots of sunshine, an earth and neutral color palette with hints of pastel tones, summer blooms in vintage vases, burlap and lace incorporated in the decor, a floor length lace bridal dress with vintage birdcage veil – indeed, a Rustic Chic themed wedding at its best. 🙂

Give in to the romance of a Southern themed wedding with the Sweet Home Alabama movie inspired wedding theme!
