Since our wedding ceremony and reception will take place in a charming garden, we're striving for a quaint romantic feel.
The primary colors will feature gold with soft pink and white. The softness of pink and white will be offset by shimmer and sparkle.
The entire wedding will take place on grass so my favorite sky high heels aren't the best option (plus they shorten my dress). So, I'm looking for fabulous wedges and flats for the big day (stalking the web for these old Miu Mius).
Our budget won't accommodate a professional photo booth so we're setting up a DIY photo area where guests can use these cute Instax Mini cameras to snap fun pics (one as a favor and one for us).
More color inspiration (so me!).
One issue with our location is that only the garden is provided. There's not even a sink for the caterer. To save costs we're playing with the idea of plastic ware for the tables. It's not extremely glamorous but doable for a garden. We're also trying to let go of our preconceived notions of what's "expected" for a wedding and just stick to what's right for us.
Romantic garden dresses for the bridesmaids--I love the idea of a soft ethereal look for my girls. This cute dress would be lovely in a soft pink.
Joey and I both want a simple wedding with a twist. We want to have a few fun elements. For example, offering my favorite Sofia bubbly in cans with funky straws.
Since we're still in the initial planning stages many of these ideas could change. Part of the fun is gathering tons of inspiration--especially since we're planning it all ourselves. One thing that is set in stone is my dress. I bought it last weekend! It's not exactly what I initially pictured for myself but it's pretty close. I love it.
Joey and I are working extremely hard to keep our wedding budget friendly. It's important for us (and our families) to stay out of debt. Since, my whole career is based in online inspiration I think it's going to be interesting to see how a wedding can be planned based off sites like Pinterest and Tumblr without the help of a designer. Wish me luck! I might be insane?
