How did you pick a theme?
No real theme we just pick and choose what we like/want. We just want our wedding to be fun, relaxed, sweet, and joyfully. We’re a laidback couple. We’re just planning ways to really get people laughing, dancing, and having fun. Lots of food, drinks, music, games, etc. Our wedding will be a little more modern with a classic, preppy flair to it since it’s at a country club.
How did you pick your colors?
I’m pretty sure we’ve been through every color in existance. My Fiance needs to just see swatches of colors because pictures(like the one below) make it hard for him to visualize what he wants instead of seeing all the ugly things he doesn’t like. I on the other hand need colorful pictures and inspiration palettes to really get me thinking. We actually just decided on our colors last night.
Our colors now are navy and coral with touches of light green and peach/tanerine.
Is there significance behind your wedding date?
No real significance. We just wanted to have our outdoor wedding in September because it’s a beautiful time of the year were we live. We wanted early September so we could still experience those warm summer nights but we didn’t want it too early.
For those who have been planning for a while, did you start out with one idea and change to something different mid-way through the planning process?
We started off super formal and traditional because that what was kind of expected and we had planned on a different venue. But honestly it just wasn’t us. We’re a classic but casual couple. Swanky venues, cocktail hours, and hors d’oeuvres
How hands on is your fiancé in the planning process?
He’s not as “in to” planning as I am but he’s very hands on and more the willing to discuss ideas. He wants to be a part of all the big things. Touring/book a venue, sampling food, interviewing/booking a photographer, colors, entertainment, etc. He’s not as concerned about flower pairings, table linens, ceremony decor, etc. This wedding is very much going to be a mix of our styles and passions.
I hope you enjoy the boards. Sometimes discussions can be intense but this is DEFINITELY the best place on the web to talk weddings(and other things as well) You’ll be hard pressed to find a place that has a larger selection of people, opinions, ideas, pictures, inspirations, etc.
