I was just thinking about how different my wedding is turning out to be from what I had initially envisioned. Don’t get me wrong, I think our wedding is going to be great, but it’s completely not what I had expected. I had always thought that I would have an outdoor wedding on a beach somewhere with tropical flowers and steel drums playing….
BUT our families live in Seattle and my family doesn’t have a lot of money and would not be able to pay to fly to a destination wedding, so Seattle it is. We looked at a few outdoor venues, but with Seattle weather in September you never know what you are going to get. SO… our venue is an indoor converted cafe from the 1920’s. It is pretty dark inside and tropical flowers won’t really match, so I think we are going with dendrobium orchids.
Just wondering if anyone else has had the same sort of experience. 🙂

First of all what you described is amazing and wonderful!! I would be excited to attend a wedding there. Our wedding didn’t have a theme or anything when we started, we just wanted it to be intimate. Now it’s got a full blown theme and color scheme- I feel like it’s a REAL wedding!

My wedding is defintely evolving. I think I am still on the same track though. I originally wanted something really really formal (men arent allowed to wear shorts at my venue! ahah) But that has changed to the GM’s wearing suspenders or vests with oversized bowties, doily’s, lace, and anything old fashioned in as many places as I can shove it. It all started with my dress- when i bought my dress and realized it wasn’t my “dream” and it didn’t have enough lace, I started make up for it but putting lace on my tables, in my centerpeices, in my hair flower, on my bolero, and anywhere else it is possible to put lace.
I’m very excited to see how it will all turn out and come together!
