I loved it all…until I got to the orange. I’m a huge fan of the Converse (but DH and his guys wore them too, so I’m a bit biased). I also love anything w/ polka dots. I do like your STD’s, they’re simple but way cute.

I love it all but I think the flower and dress being polka dot may be too much, The orange doesn’t bothr me at all but if you want to changed it maybe try turqoise or neon green.

I think the orange is great!  (It’s my main wedding color)  It looks cute with the black and white polka dots!  I would go with a more modern laid back style bouquet to go with the theme of your wedding.  Everything else is young, fun and modern, and that orange bouquet picture is kind of stuffy and traditional.  I think the orange is good, but just not THAT bouquet.

I love it!  I agree maybe going with a more modern bouquet, maybe like a PP suggested orange gerberas or something similar.  I really, really love your theme!

The orange is cool when you pull everything together. There are things you can do to scale the color down…add a little more green, darker orange, add bling. Just be careful when selecting the linen. Take your CP flowers to the linen showroom and test your vision before ordering the color or textured linen if using orange flowers for the CP.

You can add a small orange bud rose in the middle of the current hair accessory for the BMs.

The Save the Date is really cute and I love the pic, it’s a little hard to envision the bottom with the state. Just looking at it I think I would like the complete 2011 vs. 11. I understand that you covering it up though.

Good Job keep it up.

your dress is beautiful. I think you need to move your belt up to go around your waist. My husband says your belt needs to be skinner 🙂 YOu have an amazing body anbd you need to show off that skinny waist! YOu look great but i think moving your belt up will really make your figure look even better! I like everything else!

@Miss Tattoo:

Becasue people were converse to be fresh and original at their weddings and really its just copying somehting that’s been done countless of times.  Sure wearing dress shoes is overdone, but then again it dosn’t look like you’re trying to do somehting fresh and original its just the norm which is completly acceptable and no ones gonna think its tacky and overdone.  On the other hand people see mathching converse and automatically think they tried but couldn’t think of anything actually original to do and therefore it is tacky.

I don’t think the orange with the black and white looks Halloween-y because those polka dots are clearly not Halloween-y.  But I do agree with a PP that said incorporating a dark green, like the green on the flower stems, would make it even better.  Less matchy-matchy, and the Halloween associations would never cross people’s minds.  I think what you have going on overall is really greay, but do you plan to incorporate the polka dots into anything else?  I would just be wary of how much polka dots you use because it can turn out looking too precious or possibly hurting people’s eye (when I’m surrounded by a pattern like that, it tends to give me a bit of a headache).  Otherwise, cute.  I like your dress; it’s really fun.
