Wedding planning is going so well, it seems unreal. We've chosen our photographer and caterer and venue, picked some colors, started making a wedding website, met with the friend who is designing our Save the Dates to discuss the design, and oh yeah, we set a date!!! We're getting married on October 5, 2013. When we decided to tie the knot at the lake house, we knew we'd either have to do it in October, or wait until next spring. But spring is too rainy, and summer is too hot, and fall of 2014 is too far away. So seven months from now, I'll be a married woman. WOW.
Everyone is asking me, "What are your wedding colors? What is your wedding going to look like?" Well. I'm keeping it a secret for now, but I can tell you one thing: As much as I love libraries, it won't look like this. *sigh*
I've been lurking Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes since Keith moved in last year. They've given me a lot of good ideas... But too many ideas. Above all, I want a cohesive design concept. I knew I couldn't have mason jar cocktails and DIY centerpieces and a suitcase card holder and a brooch bouquet without looking like Pinterest threw up on our wedding. And come hell or high water, I want my brooch bouquet!
I figured I can either have it all, or I can have cohesive, simple elegance. Sign me up for elegance! To rein myself in, I came up with two completely different design concepts and made a mood board for each. When I finished the boards, I let Keith make the final decision. The library mood board did NOT make the cut. I only mourned for about 3 seconds. I love the dark, moody colors of leather-bound books, but it would've been hard to make this look work at outdoors, next to the water. And I reeeeeeeeally love the board he chose!
Can I tell you something funny? Before he even looked at the mood boards, he asked, "Will these ideas allow me to wear a charcoal gray suit with pale blue accents? Because that would look good with my eyes." Hahahahaha! WHAT MAN ASKS THAT?! My future husband, that's who.
|He's kinda cute. I think I'll marry him.|
