Thanks! We’re doing everything handmade or vintage, it will be very “la vie boheme.” Mostly, we want it to be a relaxing fun celebration!
@corgi: If you’re going for the urban grunge look with your venue, have you considered going with jewel tones? Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald? They’re gorgeously rich for a winter wedding, and look so great with the urban grunge feel. 😀 Not to make you more indecisive, just thought I’d throw it out there! 😀 I’ve changed my colors so many times since the beginning of planning, but I think I’m finally to a point where it won’t change again. Initially it had purple and chocolate brown in the color scheme! Haha. I’d love to see your inspiration board!
Also, I am not happy with my size either, (or more correctly, my level of tone) I’ve been working out a lot lately to at least try and tone/sculpt some) but dress shopping actually was a great experience for me, and made me feel a lot better about myself, and has provided good motivation to keep working out. Maybe if you found a beautiful dress, even if it wasn’t “the one” it would give you a visual to work towards?
@blondeeebuckeye: Yeah, there’s definitely some non-traditional factors to our wedding, and the inspiration board is just the beginning! Haha, when we first started wedding planning the first thing Fiance said was “we can do the wedding however you want, but our cake topper is going to be LEGO.” 😛
I’m cool with that though, we originally met because of legos and star trek, so it has sentimental value. The rest of the cake is going to be how I want it. We went to our cake tasting about a week ago and decided on a (delicious) lemon cake…it was like eating a fluffy turquoise dream, I’ve been craving it ever since. The coolest part, though, is that the inside is going to be colored, so while it looks all white, traditional, and pristine on the outside, you cut into it and it has peacock colored stripes. 😀
Like this, only dark blue, teal, and emerald green.
Now, according to my family, it’s apparently become the “etsy wedding” which cracks me up, because I was an Etsy addict way before WB or engagement. I love the bohemian/indie look, and am so happy with the way stuff is turning out.
I’ve almost decided on the style of my dress, and it’s being custom made by this amazing independent (etsy) designer/seamstress. I’m being REALLY indecisive about the dress too! I’m going to try on dresses for the last time tomorrow, to decide on the general style, but my seamstress is all ready to start on it, and I want to give her plenty of time. So I’m going to have to make a decision.
I would love to see the three pictures of your dress blondeee!
This is the style I’m leaning towards, but I’m still in love with my initial pick, too:
This is my initial pick, which would be made with a corset back (with peacock colored ribbons) I love the bubble skirt:
