Hmmm, I daydream about my wedding a lot.

Either in the mountains or close to the mountains in August

Classical music for the ceremony

Burgundy, silver, black and cream for colors

Big reception with lots of country/jazz/dance music

Booze, if I can convince my dad it’s not evil…

What I find kinda funny is what you daydream about before you begin planning vs. what you end up with. Before I got engaged, I wanted:

Red dress with my bridesmaids in ivory/soft white

Winter wedding with lots of white and red/silver accents

GIGANTIC ballroom venue with a staircase I could make my entrance on

Live band


And now I’m planning a cozy August wedding in a museum, with my bridesmaids in purple and me in a white-toned dress. And we’re getting a DJ πŸ˜€

I want to be married in a blossoming apple orchard, or in some beautiful old-fashioned garden.

My dress is going to be one that I make myself– ivory-colored, and designed as some amalgamation of historical fashions and modern fashion.

My groom will be in a semi-historical costume that I’ll make!

disclaimer: this is totally fantasy and SO often has his own ideas..please do not throw up at how much i’ve already thought about this..

lots of diy with personal touches, i’m a flying piggy and he’s my hunnybear <3

romantic, emotional heartfelt vows in a ethereal draped, candlelit space with dramatic view, celebratory song…and OF COURSE, SO did not forget to send me flowers/write me a letter before hand! πŸ˜‰

intimate party, small or no bridal party, lots of speeches and words of intoxicated love, SO would sing me a song and cry

art deco/old hollywood/old havana/shanghai nights/glam ish

slinky beaded art deco inspired gown with birdcage veil

blood red peonies or cattleya orchids

lots of sparkle, lots of candles

chinese banquet or asian/latin fusion

salsa dancing

sangria (important to our first date!) and bubbly

Southern vintage, a gorgeous hotel venue in Charleston, colors are gold, soft pink, and ivory (believe it or not, they were actually SO’s idea!!!  He said he was inspired by a dogwood tree with pink blossoms and I love it!).  A big, big, BIG gown with a long train and cathedral veil Bridesmaids are in soft pink with ivory sashes, heartfelt vows in the ceremony room, then upstairs for the party!  Lots and LOTS of yummy Southern food (I’ve even looked at the menu for the site we want because I’m crazy like that…shrimp and pepperjack grits, crab cakes, chicken, corn bread, she crab soup, hoppin john, pecan pie, coconut cake…food is the one thing my SO is not about to compromise on, so we’re going all out there!).  

It’s fun to dream πŸ™‚

@jpalm13:  real life potential

@Creiddylad:  wow making your own attire, that is brave. i was just thinking i never see anything that is “perfect” wouldn’t it be nice if could make it myself? i definitely do not have the skills!

Small and intimate, meaning about 75 people, thats how much it takes to include everyone we love, if they all show…

Theme – Simple yet elegant

Details – Strapless white dress for me fitted but not too fitted, something unique lace or bling preferred certainly NOT plain and updo hair with flower, black tuxes for all the guys, I wanted white for SO, he said no. Girls in strapless tea length dresses, Maid/Matron of Honor in long halter dress preferably. Still contemplating if they will carry flowers or parasols.  Its outdoors in Florida, sun might be killer….just tryna look out for my chicas!

Venue – Hotel with beautiful gardens, ceremony outside, reception indoors of the hotel.

Reception – Good Food, 3 tiered cake, Dancing, Newly Wed Game, good times! 

Honeymoon – Mexico! SO swears he is half Jamaican and half Mexican, he likes the food and music. In reality, he’s just a caucasian looking puerto rican dude. But he’s the love of my life so Mexico it is!
