Anyone else having a hard time getting Fiance and MOB to like your creative ideas?
So I fell in LOVE with the idea of carrying morrocan style lanterns down the isle rather than bouquets and all in all I just wanted candles anyways for ceremony decor, really nothing else, maybe an isle runner, and I wanted my girls to carry amber lanterns with fancy scrollwork with led candles inside and I was going to carry some sort of white one and put it on our ceremony table once I get up there. I had planned on putting a variety of candle heights on mirrors up there for ambiance. We are doing a sand ceremony but keeping it low key, just votive sized holders for our sand and something low and clear to mix them, just plain sand too.
I wanted Fiance to love the idea too bc my mom is already having a fit and my BMs are kinda confused. Fiance says “as long as you don’t go over board on the designs…I liked what we were doing before with the simple flowers”..
The design is SUPPOSED to be delicate and ornate and it will look GREAT with our simple ceremony. My dress is plain and i would only do the lanterns with my style dress and my MOM thinks it isn’t traditional enough and ppl will be confused. I SWEAR, whenever creativity hits, conficts of opinion surface. I’M the creative one in the family and no one sees my visions. I guess I’ll have to put together some good inspiration boards.

I love the lantern idea as well! I think it would be beautiful and unique! I say go for it! It’s your big day! 🙂
Edit: My family is so UGHH when it comes to anything that is not traditional, and the Fiance doesn’t really care much for the decor ect. but Lord knows I will never get the tan suits I wanted to guys to wear. Boo! :/

Maybe they just need to see the lantern? Maybe they are picturing something totally different than what you are thinking of.

It has taken a lot of convincing on my end for some things, but be patient, not everyone has seen all the images you have so it’s difficult for people to visualize it when they don’t have the same things in mind.

So you’re kinda of an off beat bride? I think that’s awesome I wish I can be that daring… I’m have in a very traditional wedding.

Thanks for all your input! I think sometimes I have to just let my mom have what she wants. It’s important not only bc she’s paying but she never had a wedding and I didn’t even really want one but I wanted her to be part of the experience. I love tradition too! I really want a bride and groom cake topper!
