We are making head way with our wedding plans. When I’m not working I’m writing my thesis and when I’m not writing I’m planning my wedding. I’m having a blast! You may remember my post about the all important venue. We have our hearts set on two venues at the moment, one that was in the post and another one that has caught our eye. I won’t reveal the place that we will decide on just yet as I have a whole train of posts thought out for after the wedding. These early posts are just to share where our heads are at in the planning stages and the inspiration that we have picked up along the way. I also think it’s a nice idea to do these posts to look back on after the big day to see if we actually carried out any of these ideas.
For any wedding I guess the theme is another important aspect. I know that some people choose not to have a theme but I have been picking up so many ideas and think the theme that I have settled on (sorry WE have settled on 😀 ) will fit perfectly with how we want the atmosphere and how we want our special to look and feel.
I’m channeling a romantic vintage theme for the wedding breakfast reception and the venue that we are days away from confirming has a lovely secret garden themed set of rooms for the evening party which I thought would be great to continue the vintage theme with an English tea party.
I’m thinking bunting, lace, candles, crystals, bird cages, floral prints, lots of flowers, luggage labels, china and pretty pastels and glamour. I absolutely adore anything to do with the 1920s and the 1940s so I think this theme is just perfect. Alfie can be very quirky in his fashion sense too at times so he’s game for all things vintage too.
My current wedding inspiration board looks a little bit like this:
I’ve also found some great wedding inspiration in blog land too…
I’m loving reading about others peoples weddings and experiences and just being damn right nosey on these blogs. It’s nice to see all of that hard and drawn out planning become something so beautiful.
Have you been to a themed wedding before? Cheesy or beautiful?
How do you envision your own wedding?
