… and I chose go home XD
We were origionally planning a celestial theme, late-night wedding, in a great glass ceiling venue and very glamorous. Deep blue & purple, silver & gold were are colors. But that would all be soo much money, if we tried for an “expensive” look on a budget I was afraid it would come out cheap or tacky, or we would have to give too many things up.
So our wedding has taken a complete 180 in the past few months, haha. It’s now a slightly vintage daytime garden wedding in his parents’ back yard- lavender, baby blue, and white. And I love it about 100x better, it’s so us. He built that back yard and we’ve spent many lovely summer evenings there together. And so much more affordable!
Has anyone else had a totally radical change in your wedding vision overnight?

@Butterbee: That’s exactly what we’re doing, almost to a tee! We have light pink instead of baby blue, though 🙂 I am partial…I think it’s such a romantic way to have a wedding 🙂
We pretty much changed our ‘feel’ overnight – we were going to a very over the top, 5 course sit-down wedding with a full bar, etc. and it just didn’t feel like ‘us’. I was feeling like the wedding was getting out of control. We decided to tone it down to a cocktail, lounge feel, with lots of wine and dancing 🙂

You sound so happy about changing your wedding vision. I love weddings that express what the bridea an groom are about. Congrats.

I did…. about 3 months into planning. It was originally that soft vintage (ivory & soft blue) and turned to a very colorful retro 60s/70s All You Need is Love theme!.. which fit us SOOO much better and truned out FANTASTIC! =)

I went back and forth at first too- for me, the theme depended on the venue, thier packages offered & price. Once I had the venue locked in, everything else fell into place because my options to flipflop on the theme/style were limited (for me, that’s a very good thing). Glad to hear you love the new wedding plan!
