It's around this time of year that another slew of friends get engaged. Through the congratulations & sweet surprises I start to think about what I would want in my wedding. Now, I am no where close to needing to begin to plan one (thank you very much...though it has crossed my mind. I mean, I've had a Wedding Inspiration pin board even before meeting Zach. c'mon)
It's just the spring seems to be the time of thinking about these things. Everyone is showing off their rings, talking about their plans, Pinterest get's filled with wedding images. So I thought I'd dive in to one of my guilty pleasures: Wedding Pinning. I tweeted about Wedding Pinning earlier & that spawned sharing my ideas for my own wedding:
This is totally up in the air! But I do know I want to make my own with either my own design or a conglomeration of other design elements. I do know I like to still have a handmade look so probably some elements that mimic watercolor or hand writing. Maybe even some hand high lighted parts...
When I stared my wedding pin board, I thought it would be wonderful to have a small outdoor ceremony in my grandparents' back yard. They have a pool, a little bit of grass, a patio, & little deck. It would have been perfect to have the little ceremony back there. I thought long & hard about where the guests would sit, how the bridesmaids would come in, where we would stand....wedding pinning gets me all worked up! These are the images I was inspired by:
I am in love with gray right now, so that is a central color in this dream wedding. Though I'd probably incorporate my fave color (purple) & his fave color. I love the idea of grecian goddess flowing dresses with a defined waist with a bit of braided fabric. These dresses are lovely!
The I Do's:
I'd like to write our own vows & speak from the heart. There will probably be a pretty backdrop, maybe with draped fabric....this is a part I haven't planned yet. But one part that is a must? Confetti/Sprinkle throwing instead of Rice. I don't like those little bubbles mainly because every wedding where I've excitedly opened my little bubble bottle has lead to a dud. A dud bubble bottle that is! I never get one that works! I know how to blow bubbles, mind you, my bubble solution is always thick and gross....like it's sat too long on a Party City shelf :( So I want confetti or sprinkles thrown as we walk back down the aisle!
I'd love to use the backyard space as a reception space as well. There will probably be some help needed to transform the backyard from ceremony to reception space....but I don't see it being too hard. Maybe lay down a dance floor...maybe just dance in the grass? who knows! I'd still like to have tables & favors & place settings for a head table.
I can dream...
Have you been congratulating any one lately on their engagement or have you been wedding pinning since Pinterest started? Do you have it all planned out?
