  • Wedding: April 2013

I have always wanted a Christmas wedding but living in Minnesota I did not want to deal with worrying about the weather so when my Darling Husband proposed in March by setting up the Christmas tree and decorating it I was so excited!  We had a Christmas wedding in April and it was amazing!!

  • Wedding: August 2013

@Aquaria:  My dream is to live on a farm. My grandparents had one and his parents live on one – there is just something magical to me about living off the land. I can’t wait to live like that!

It wasn’t easy to pick a ‘theme’ but I knew my venue (the farm) and I knew I hated Bi-Color weddings with traditional wedding decor (tulle, taffeta, matching everythings) – so I just went from there.

We kind of backed into it, I guess.

My niece and I were in the beginning stages of planning and her favorite color is coral… so that was our starting point.  The original plan with the original fiance was a Southern wedding at a plantation, with a ballgown dress, horse and carriage and lots of bling.  Well…. they broke up.  LOL

2 years and a new fiance later and we’re back in business! Wink 

She still loved coral as her main color, but wanted to go in a different direction with everything else.  So now we are planning a rustic outdoor wedding, with the reception in a cabin like structure on a creek.  

The details started to evolve…. rustic wood, old oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, mason jars, burlap, lace, flowers in shades of coral, peach, pink and yellow, lots of Southern details like cotton bolls in the bouts, Georgia peaches in the table decor, traditional Southern foods like shrimp and grits, a biscuit bar, red velvet cupcakes…. and the theme of a Georgia Peach Wedding was born!

  • Wedding: December 2010

When we got married, Tiffany blue was all the rage–everyone was doing it.  And, I had also planned on doing it.  I had the Tiffany blue shoes picked out, the jewelry, a Tiffany blue tie for my husband, etc.  

Then, I found these shoes, and the whole Tiffany blue idea went out the window.  Pink is my favorite color, and I realized that this was it.  So, Pink, Ivory and Grey became our colors. The rest of our theme just kind of fell into place by what the B&B where we got married had as decorations, which turned out to be Christmas decorations because we got married December 1st.

  • Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall

My fiance loves a really rich blue (not dark blue, not turquoise, just a really rich plain blue) so we chose that as our bridesmaid/groomsman color, and I liked the way it looked with yellow so I chose yellow for our flowers. Slowly I’ve added more white into wedding things and I love the way the three colors look together. It’ll look nice in a spring-y outdoor ceremony with a lush green golf course in the background. I don’t really have a “theme” though.

I started pinning things to a wedding board for about a year before we got engaged. When he proposed and I started planning, I went through and looked at the board, and I had a pretty clear theme of vintage/romantic/glam with pinks/whites/blacks/golds, so I deleted everything else.

@vorpalette:  +1 same.


I never had a clear vision of what I wanted, but it turned out that everything I was picking out or pinning all happened to be the same colors/styles. Simple enough 🙂

  • Wedding: September 2013

Well, I’m a huge fan of black and white prints (esp. Zebra print) so I decided to use a black and white damask print.  I pulled up google images of damask print themed weddings with pops of color.  I chose my 3 favorite ones (teal/aqua, shades of purple, or shades of green) and gave Fiance the deciding choice.  He chose teal, of course, it’s his fav. NFL team color.  So we have a black and white damask print with teal and tiffany blue accents.
