I think that all works together very nicely! 

Don’t let your MIL get you down.  Do you particularly like her taste?  I’ll bet not.

I love everything! It’s your wedding, as long as it’s YOU, don’t worry about anyone else 🙂 My MIL has very traditional style too and her suggestions never really fit into our wedding plans so we would just respectfully decline. She ended up really loving everything on the big day so maybe once your MIL sees it all tied together, she’ll feel differently.

Beautiful!  I think everything goes together really nicely.

In answer to your question, yes I do think something could be too mismatched when going for eclectic.  But from what you’ve shown here, I don’t think that’s the case for you.  When I think “eclectic,” I think a bunch of mismatched chairs and mismatched vases.  Everything you’ve shown seems to go together well while still being original and non-traditional.  I like it!

love it! similar ideas to what I intend for our wedding (kinda). I also worry it’ll all come together, but… i’m sure it will because it’s “us”.

Looks fabulous to me. I love the colours you have chosen and ultimately, your day should reflect you and your FI. Not your MIL!

based on what you showed, nothing really looks too out there and every thing looks like it goes together perfectly.

irkeiko:  Well I’m a great believer in taking other people’s views into account with courtesy but equally, there comes a time when you have to say “I respect your ideas but actually THIS is what works best for us”.

I still remember looking across the reception room when I married my ex-husband and thinking “Is this really MY wedding?” because in the end, it had been easier to give in to my former MIL’s very outdated views than it had been to argue.

With the wisdom of age, I’d never let this happen again!

irkeiko:  I think that all goes together pretty well! It is ecclectic, but gently so. There’s nothing disjointed or jarring about any of it.

irkeiko:  Oh, that’s a good idea.  I like all the BMs wearing the same shoes, especially since they’ll be wearing cocktail length dresses.  My BMs wore floor-length gowns, so I told them they could wear whatever shoes they wanted since no one would see them anyhow.  I can’t wait to see pictures from your wedding!  Be sure to share once you have them.  🙂  And your veil is to die for!

You have great taste; I love your ideas. They don’t seem mismatched to me, at all (at least, not from what you’ve shown us here.) The belt is gorgeous.
