When we first got engaged: Small wedding (50 guests) with a tapas bar type reception, “slinky” sexy/chic gown, olive green and gold colors, in the fall.
Currently: big wedding (200 guests), traditonal mansion reception venue, A-line, romantic dress, peach/pink/gold colors, in the summertime!
I think the only thing that’s stayed the same is my groom! It’s amazing how much the wedding can morph into something you never anticipated. I’m excited for the bigger, more romantic vibe our wedding have taken though…

We’re still having an intimate wedding, but all of a sudden our non-themed wedding has an “Arizona theme” I think it all started with our color palate- we didn’t want to detract from the “Natural beauty” of the Arizona Red Rock… and it just kind of evolved. Neither of us thought we would have a theme!
Oh and I bought a dress on the cheap that I’m totally not wearing, ended up spending a little over 1k on a gown… ha!

yes it has…mostly because the type of venue i had ALWAYS always planned on (art gallery) didn’t seem to work out. The space didn’t have the right “flow” for me and opted out….i was going for a very contemporary feel originally.
Our chosen venue is now a women’s club that has a lovely vintagey-historic charm and my design ideas have morphed from modern-chic to nostalgic elegance… haha whatever that means. vintage meets elegance meets chic. 🙂

Initially: HUGE tented outdoor wedding at my parents’ lakehouse, renting everything, wearing NOTHING BUT a huge princessy ballgown and cathedral veil, 12 bridesmaids, Saturday, pink & gold as the colors.
Now: Medium sized church wedding with a reception at a historic Inn, two gowns: one princessy ballgown to wear only for the ceremony and a trumpet to wear the rest of the night, birdcage veil, 8 bridesmaids, 3 bridesmen, Friday, but still having pink and gold… of course. 🙂

my wedding has morphed fro,
Black silver burgandy modern theme..with marquee
To garden wedding – burgandy/gold were the original color scheme but then I couldnt find some really good burgandy bridesmaid dresses.. So they bought red ones so added orange/red to the color scheme
Reception Venue: was yacht club looking over the water.. now restaurant convention centre with the style modern and we werent allowed candles, most things I had planned was a romantic theme with the candles. So ive had to rethink everything.
Wedding of mums original guest list of 310 to 150, because there are no venues that could fit that amount and I do not want that amount rocking up to the wedding anyway.
its changed lots.. over the last 6 months.. I can hardly keep up that it keeps on evolving!

Hmmm we haven’t been engaged for that long actually just shy of a month.. originally i wanted a slinky mermaid pnina tornai-esque gown.. i ended up with more of a slim a line pronovias-esque gown.. i originally wanted a historic bed and breakfast as the venue, it looks like we’ll end up with a golf course in a historic city (at least we’ll have great pictures lmao)!! everything else has remained the same or very close to it…

Mine started out – violet, pewter and ivory as the main colors, guest list of 200, venue at a historic mansion in the South Bay.
Now – olive green, sunflower yellow, chocolate brown and ivory, 400 guests, venue is a winery in the East Bay.
Basically, the huge guest list meant we had to change our venue, which changed the feel of the wedding from antique vintage to rustic vintage glam.
