- Wedding: September 2015 - The Armory
Am I the only one who started out planning with a specific vision / theme and by the end of it, it turns out to be different? But it’s not a bad thing! I have an obbsession with old glass jars (not just mason) and vintage crochet doilies, so started my vintage romance theme. I was totally against burlap, but then I found this beautiful watercolor floral printed burlap I had to have for my table runnners. The centers of the tables will have mismatched doilies with vintage jars with candles and flowers in them.
isn’t it gorgeous??? the colors and design fit my scheme and the romantic feel so I was sold, and drove almost 2 hours to the nearest store that had it available because it was discontinued. then came figuring out our alter space, I had found some inspiration online of this:
and after finding some really pretty discounted stuff at michaels, I came up with this:
here is a close up
I’ve also made paper bunting banners and paper medallion rosettes and behind the dessert bar will be a set up something like this, minus the tissue poms
The thing is, my wedding is turning out to be more Bohemian and less vintage / romantic. but I’m really okay with that! I guess I just didn’t really know how to describe the look I was going for in the beginning lol.

I started out with a very heavy peacock inspired theme. Jewel tones, with antique gold/bronze and cream.
But no matter how many times I described this
Fiance was picturing this
( which don’t get me wrong I also love but I understand why he wasn’t crazy about it )
So our colors and theme kind of evolved more into this
With the blue being predominant and the copper/coral/peach in as an accent. The bridesmaids are all wearing that exact shade of blue their flowers will be ivory blush and peach, and my flowers will be coral pink and peach. The only reason the peacock feathers are still really in there is a) because I love them and b) because I ordered a crap ton on eBay before the whole change happened.

I didn’t really have a theme, but deciding to do a Fall wedding compared to spring did change up my mind in the color scheme. I still wanted blue, but preferred the darker blue (not navy) in the Fall. Whereas, if I had gotten married in the spring, it would have been a lighter blue.
I also had debated peacock cos I loved the coloring of it all. But, went a different direction with that as well. I did my own silk flowers, and the Fall colors were easier to find this time of the year than most others.
I also had a mismtach of ideas and bascially just put them all together in the end. I had a burlap wrapped card basket, a burlap Mr. & Mrs. sign. Our tables had vases with a bling wrap at the bottom (no other bling anywhere), which the vases were provided by the venue so I figured I could dress them up some. I could have probably done a lace burlap like what was on my bouquet, but too late now. *lol* It was all me, and that was what worked!

mine started as an art deco theme since our ballroom is straight from the 30s, but as i plan more i like having more of just an elegant magical wedding style
