Um yes. My original idea was to, even though my wedding is 12/30 to totally ignore that is was christmas time at all. Deep blues, gem purples, and emerald greens. Well now my colors are red, gold and green, we have garland and wreaths in the chapel, christmas tress and a cocoa bar in the reception.

And I am stoked beyond belief. I think it is totally me, I play Christmas music in October and have a tree up the week of Thanksgiving, I don’t know why I didn’t want to embrace it and now that I have stoped fighting it I love it more and more all the time. See my post on DIY christmas light “bunting” and somewhere there is a post with an awful paint mock up of my cermony decor. So different than I originally thought!

Haha I love how this happens. I originally wanted a cute park reception and a fitted lace dress. I ended up with a poofy A-line dress that has some lace detailing on it, but is primarily satin. My wedding theme has also gone from being centered around a whimsical park reception to a vintage theme in a hall. 

I did decide to pick a vintage chapel in a park for the ceremony so I guess part of the original plan is trying to pop through.

Yes! I was totally going to be a carefree Destination Wedding bride with a small 8:30pm sunset ceremony on a cliff (or maybe in a castle) and fashionable cocktail reception afterwards–low fuss, low cost.

In this process, though, I have turned into some mutant form of tradition-loving, satin trumpet gown-wearing, 3-course candlelight dinner and big-band-having stranger! Okay, well, not a stranger–I DO like pretty (and often expensive) things and classy events, so it’s not totally out of the realm of “me”–but it’s not what I ever dreamed of having or wanting! I’d still do the Destination Wedding thing in a heartbeat if a holiday with all of our families wouldn’t be such a hot mess, but considering our situation, buffer is better.

Ah well, I guess it’s life experience, hey? There’s always an anniversary for a secret vow renewal in a spectacular location…

My theme changed too. I started out with very Autumn (Fall-ey), rustic, harvest theme with dark oranges and browns and maybe yellows. Now it’s modern orange and blue, i still have fall elements, but nothing is rustic or vintage-ey anymore… Sometimes I feel sad that I didn’t keep my original theme, but I like my new theme a lot

Totally. I thought I was going to have a very elegant wedding, very expensive, a dream wedding, complete with a huge poofy dress. I dreamed about it. Then I got engaged at 19 to a sailor. We’re having a pink and orange wedding (our favorite colors) and it’s very DIY and low-budget.  And my dress is A-Line and I love it.

Vineyard, check. personalized handkerchiefs, check, and white as the main color, check. I wish I could check lace for my dress, but I haven’t even touched a wedding dress yet lol.
