do you have an inspiration board?  i’d love to see what you have going on to let you know if I think it’s too much or not…

I’ve seen plenty of country vintage and it seems to go together well. Can you show us some ideas of what you’re thinking of or even just explain it to us.

This stuff all works together!  I would just stick to something similar with your flowers to tie it all together. Either use the bright colored one’s or use more earthy stuff instead. It will look amazing!

I agree with @mwitter80 you need to keep something consistent – patterns, material, flower or tones, and everything will tie together beautifully!

Sounds like the problem isn’t the theme, it’s your sister. Don’t tell her anything from now on if she can’t be supportive. (Signed, someone with a sister who tells me all my ideas are stupid.)

I am doing a shabby chic, vintage wedding!  My look is very similar.  I am also having mismatched bridesmaids (within a range of colors).  It is a really fun theme to plan and relatively inexpensive because there is a TON of stuff you can DIY.  I get a lot of my inspiration from etsy and then make the stuff myself.  

Let me know if you choose to run with this theme, we can throw ideas off each other!

I’m doing a romantic, vintage theme as well. Lace table cloths, 3-4 different centerpice designs, mis-matched silverware and lace wrapped votive candle holders. I like the idea of not having everything match and look uniform but still creating a look that it all belongs together.

I love your earth tone inspiration board and wish you a beautiful wedding. I agree with kristophine that the problem isn’t your theme, it’s your sister and if you like it then you do it. After all it’s uh hem… your wedding!!!

@SweetCheeks: I would narrow down your colors then focus on the details. It really helps. If your going for fun an festive pick bright colors, romantic go for the whites, outdoorsy go for the green and brown.
