So wow! It's been so long since I've posted anything and with good reason. Family business aside, we've met with more decorators and I think we know which one.
Some people just get it and others don't...and that's alright. But through all this planning and meeting and actually seeing what the decorators have my wedding has flourished from strictly modern vintage to classic, modern, shabby-chic with a fall twist. And I couldn't be happier!
The colours have gone from mainly white & creams & black to ivory with accents of black and pink. We want that very ethereal romantic feeling.
I'm trying to figure out a way to incorporate white pumpkins, spanish moss, succulents with diamond pin accents, blush pink roses, white hydrangeas, mercury glass, white wood accents, and vintage books into something spectacular. I've posted some photos so you can get an idea of what I'm going for. But again, my esthetic ideals have fallen short to 99% of the people I've spoken with, even shared these pictures with.
So any other ideas? I've found it really difficult to get other people to see what I'm seeing. Especially my mother who sometimes doesn't know when to be quiet. lol. But I love her anyways.
Flowers like this, but with blush pink roses incorporated and the square containers to be white and small mint julep cups. and maybe even soft pink hypericum berries or seeded eucalyptus.
my idea is to have an aisle runner like this, but with pumpkins and hurricanes only at the beginning and end of the aisle.
i just love this! this set up is intended to be a ceremony back drop, but i'm thinking just to take these elements and have them for an escort card table or something.
and I love this idea! But with light pink dahlias, small sweet heart roses and the succulents.
We even have an idea for the table numbers (like the picture above). They'll be journals -- a diy project that I'll be doing -- with the table numbers done in calligraphy -- and the inside will be blank but with the type written heading for the guests to write their well wishes, advice, etc in them.
also, I adore hydrangeas. I'm thinking this at the head of the ceremony will be awesome.
