I have all these ideas I want to incorporate and I have no idea where to put all these ideas. I live on Lake Erie and possibly will get married on the beach. Maybe, maybe not. I can’t make any final decisions because I don’t know what all will go together. My colors are blush, grey, champagne and white. I love the bling look, hate the rustic/burlap trend, I want blush pink peonies and white roses, pearls AND bling (would that even go??) and incorporate sand since we are on the beach. I want a soft, romantic bling look. I’ll post some pics of what I’m liking. I’m VERY DIY and plan to do all the flowers/decor myself.. This is the part I’m most looking forward to!
I just need someone to help me incorporate all my ideas together!!
Plus, LOTS of family from Italy (fiance’s side) are coming… So some Italian influence would be appreciated

Okay, so it looks like you’re going for mostly white, blingy classy elegance. Totally doable!! Are you asking for ceremony or reception decor advice? Is the reception outside?
I think adding starfish into the white rose bouquets would be a nice way to add beachy/sand feel.
I like the idea of glass pillars filled with water and floating roses or balls of roses, with beaded trim on the top and bottom of the pillars. All of this would be on top of a circular mirror base. Still on the mirror bordering the flower vase, scatter candles (also with beaded trim) and starfish.
Another few ideas:
– hanging crystal trim (like from chandelier pic) from cake table or escord card table. put pink rose at end of each crystal chain.
– Italy has a lot of scroll work (especially in metal). Also, they have that classy rustic flower theme, with flowers wrapping around trellaces and flower beds hanging out of windows.

Hearos: I think you can incorporate all those elements- they just have to be used carefully.
If you did a trio of cylinder vases, I would could use colored sand and candles in the tall centre vase
and use your pic for one of the smaller side vases
and do a smaller version of this for the other small vase
There needs to be a unifying factor. In this case, it would be the same flowers in the small vase and repeating the color in the sand in the taller vase.
you could add bling votive holders but do it in the form of mercury glass not rhinestones
To honor the Italian heritage, as favors or part of your favors, give each guest a confetti bomboniere (Jordan almonds). Put 5 almonds in a tulle bag with this traditional poem on the tag
Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat <br /> To remind us that life is both bitter and sweet. <br /> Five wishes for the new husband and wife — <br /> Health, wealth, happiness, children, and long life!

We are doing gift bags for favors.. His family is from Italy and my family is coming to New York from Ohio/Tennessee/Florida. Reception will be indoors at a hotel. I haven’t even thought about ceremony decor.
The starfish idea is adorable but I don’t think that would fit in here in new york
