- Wedding: July 2010
I’ve been an avid follower for months but have just now decided to join in on all the fun. Hopefully I’ll get as good at this as you all! Mr. Sea Glass and I moved out to Washington, DC in August so that I could begin my MBA program and it’s been a whirlwind since–so much so that wedding planning had fallen to the wayside.
But I can resist no longer. I must wedding plan, I must DIY, I must scour thrift shops for treasures on my study breaks!! Luckily my week-long spring break began today and I have a full TEN DAYS!! to indulge in all that is the Sea Glass wedding.
So here’s where I’m at so far. Since getting engaged last May, we’ve secured our ceremony site (Lutheran church), reception site (outdoor gardens), photographer, DJ and my wedding dress. Now that most of the big things are done (Mr. Sea Glass’s parents are securing the caterer), I get to focus on the details. And details are where I thrive. 🙂
After endless study breaks and late nights pouring through magazines and websites, I’ve finally figured out our style for the wedding. It’s inspired by the simplicity and freshness I LOVE in white flowers and sea glass color tones. Instead of trying to describe it to you with words like “sort of antiquey yet modern” and “French garden couture,” I’ll just post some pictures!
Here are my inspirations:
II love the blend of metallic and blue glass tones in this picture above. Since we’re using all white flowers, our blend of this will be more like this:
Put together, I’m envisioning a look similar to this:
I’ve asked my bridesmaids and mothers (FMIL, Stepmom, and real Mom) to help look for found items that can create this look. When I reconvene with all of them for wedding fun and my bachelorette party this week, I hope to collect it all and take inventory. So far, this is my stash that I somehow have to get from DC to California by July:
Wish me luck as I enter into this awesome week of wedding planning… We’re hoping to meet with the caterer, get Mr. Sea Glass fitted for his tux, visit with rental companies, go to the wholesale flower mart in SF, work on our wedding website, buy bridesmaid dresses, take our engagement photos, meet with our pastor, and start on our DIY table “number” paintings.
Have you ever tried to do it all in one week? What’s your best advice for success?!
