I am trying to build some inspiration toward what I am really wanting my wedding to be like. You ladies are great and I am sure can give me a few ideas. We are wanting to go for a classic vintage southern wedding. Our colors will be blue and yellow. The guys will most likely wear blue seersucker suits/pants.
What overall decor or thoughts come to mind when you think of a Southern Bell Wedding set in the 1930’s-1950’s?
Here is our venue.
And this is my dress:

Lemonade and mint juleps. Magnolias. Pretty hats. Napping under trees! Fans to cool yourself with…. Sorry, I don’t think I’m much help, but that’s what popped in my head… Oh and waiters with tuxes and white gloves 😉

LOL no you are great! I love the lemonade and mint juleps idea. I already have fans as programs on my list of must have. Also hankies for all of our guest.
