I have soooo many ideas for my wedding, and I know I can’t use them all. I want damask, polka dots, antique keys as my theme, lace, pearls, feathers in my centerpieces, fruit in my centerpieces, water beads in my centerpieces, centerpieces in my centerpieces!!! I get inspired and think, ooooooo, how can I fit that into my wedding?
What to do when I want it ALL?

@Bellagiobride: lol I was the same way! It’s hard when there is just so much stuff thrown at us!
I suggest you sit down (away from the internet) and discuss with your fiance, what you see your overall vision as. What do you love as a couple and go from there.

That is a great idea, unfortunately my FH couldn’t be less helpful in this area. He literally said “I have one suggestion, do not put me in a bow tie!” And that will just about conclude his assistance in the vision for our wedding. But, I think staying away from the web is an excellent idea. NO MORE INSPIRATION boards for me! lol

I think you do at first but when you find your dress etc things will fall into place as does everything else.

I think it’s easier to decide a theme once you find the venue. My FI and I looked at a couple of different places and once we found one that we liked it was easier to wrap my mind around what my theme can be.

yeah, when i went and sat down with my florist she helped me narrow my field of vision to one thing. Before then i was all over then place. I knew what I didn’t like, but I liked a little bit of everything too.

EverydayI find something else I want to add! I must be mad with less than 60 days to go! I then look at my budget and that nixes out 80% of my ideas. LOL
I came up with a theme first, Recipe for Love since we love to cook, entertain and eat. Then found a dress. Then the venue and everything started coming in place. I choose my colors from paint samples at Home Depot.
I had to stay off weddingbee, as much as I am addicted to it, and the rest of the internet and off the bridal magazines. What helped was drawing an old school brainstorming, “spider.” This helped me merge my taste as well as my FH’s. This helped tremendously!

Bellagiobride you still have plenty of time, so don’t worry about. I agree with PP that as you start to make decisions you will weed out different ideas. Our inspiration book is literally pages and pages of pictures and notes, but as things have fallen into place some of it won’t work, or we have changed our mind about what we really want it to look like. For us it has also been a matter of staying in our budget. Originally, we wanted one thing, but when we started to price things, it quickly became apparent that was not going to work with our budget. Through persistence and hard work, we have been able to find things that we love that we can afford.
I would suggest that you just keep the ideas organized so as you get ready to make final decisions, you can see what will really work.

Centerpieces in my centerpieces….that is funny! Nothing says all your centerpieces have to be the same. I’m haveing a beach wedding with a Hawaiian feel to it. I saw centerpieces with sand, seashells, hawaiian flowers, water, starfish, coral, etc., and I wanted it all! Was told to pick one, I said, nope, figure out a way to put all of it together. So I’m having cylinder glass filled with different items, each of them looking hawaiian in design but with everything I want! Some will have sand and seashells, some will have water with coral, others will have the hawaiian flowers. It all comes together with the feel I want. So do it all and tie it all together! 🙂

@Bellagiobride: LMAO @ “Centerpieces in my centerpieces!” I swear that phrase alone will help me get through these next couple of months, thanks for the laugh! It sounds like you’re going for a Victorian wedding theme! The only thing that isn’t a usual match in your list is polka dots but I bet there’s a way to weave it in seamlessly! Go for it! 🙂
