- Wedding: September 2012
we never really picked out a theme, he just told me to go crazy and that he loved blue, which i personally despise. i believe this day is about us not me. so i searched for themes and color schemes that incorporated blue and i liked. i kept coming back to either tropical colors which wasnt his shade of blue and the peacock feather theme. i wasnt too big into a peacock theme but i did like incorporating the feathers so we as i continued to search i found some jewel tone stuff, and this stood out to me. id love to have a vintage, rustic, victorian,garden theme but not his cup of tea. so i sat down with the jewel tones and peacock feathers. we decided on a plum purple, royal blue, emerald green and slight touches of teal and pink. using a slate steel background. tablecloths, bm dresses, and a lot more with pops of the three main colors and slight pops of the two other colors. were waitting to hear back from our venue, which we were hoping would be a warehouse. it just seemed to match the deep jewel tones ontop of the slate steel color. but as i stand now four and a half months away from our big day im getting nervous. our choices to date have all been bold and drastic so to say and im a little nervous it wont all pull together and look ‘right’ i keep getting drawn back to the vintage, classic soft ideas but i want to do what he likes as well. im just really nervous i wont be able to pull it all off especially since our budget is a little tight. he has three kids and we have a lot to work around. weve talked to his daughter who is five and will be the flower girl. she is thrilled about the jewels and loves the idea. ive had a lot of compliments, most starting out with thats unusual or unique. so i looked online and have found nothing similar to the ideas i have in my head and now my nerves have hit the roof. i could pull off changing the theme, our familys are so excited thatmost of the staples are being donated by them. the decor and theme are all on me. maybe its just the pressure but im getting cold feet about the whole big day and how it will look. weve had suggestions as to move the day back aa year but im sold on by the end of this year i will have the same last name as my little family. (we all live together and im the not so typical stay at home step mommy) the kids are really excited about the wedding but lately ive just had the idea of eloping and forgetting about the stress even though i know id regret it. i just have no idea what to do. if i dont make a decision soon itll be too late. i just dont know of i can managae to pull this off.
