We originally thought yellow and white and silver- which became champagne and perrywinkle and mixed metalics. i went from whimsical to elegant, and all sorts of other changes.
I had a friend go from barn wedding to country club too!
Tell me your original vison and how it changed!!!!

The only thing that changed from our original plan was the open bar. we planned on signature drinks, but when the time came, we opened the bar up for both the rehearsal and wedding reception. We also paid the band and DJ to stay longer. It’s less fun to be frugal when the party is almost over so we changed our minds 🙂
@vista – I think your changes were for the better! the venue really went with your more elegant decor etc.

I love this thread! Well I’m not married yet…another 39 days to go! eeek! But so far whats changed is,
number 1: Our reception went from a swanky resturant on Lake Michigan to a log Lodge on Lake Michigan.
Number 2: My theme went from Tiffany & Co. to Classy County and my favors went from Chocolate covered strawberrys in little Tiffany boxes to a cookie recipe in Mason jars.
But Honestly….I’m lovin it more!!!

Actually, once I get an idea in my head, I really like to stick with it. I’m extremely decisive (which is weird for a Libra), and would just rather stick with the original plan than to get too many ideas and get confused. Once I saw a couple of ideas I liked, I just built on that. We got married on a lake, so I went with a mild nautical feel and I never really strayed from that.
I really only changed a few DIY ideas here and there. Although I will say I went back and forth over whether to serve brunch-type food or lunch.
My SIL is planning her wedding now, and she is a really back-and-forth kind of person, so I’ll be interested to see what her final product turns out to be. I’ll be surprised if it looks anything like she’s imagining now.

I’m not married yet! But when I first started planning it was going to be small (80 people?) swanky, loungy, city chic, with olive greens and golds. Now it’s 220 people and everything is super feminine…pink, peach and gold with roses and a huge cathedral.

my main thing that changed was our venue. i wanted it to be in a garden…. but soon learned that i couldn’t afford it, but we still ended up outdoors in a beautiful courtyard of a b&b. i still tried to use lots of flowers and had my flower girl carry a prettied up watering can to keep the garden feel.

I had always envisioned a spring wedding, but we ended up with a Fall date due to the timing of our engagement and the fact that we didn’t want an engagement of more than a year. Once a date was selected I came up with a vision and really didn’t change it. I used Fall colors and Fall decor. My BM’s wore Eggplant and carried fall flowers.

It didn’t. Then again, except for marrying my Darling Husband, wearing a gorgeous dress, warm weather and a very intimate ceremony, I HAD no vision, lol!

Originally we planned a potluck for our reception but we ended up going with only desserts.
We also planned on being married outside, but at the last minute had to get married inside (because of weather).
And we forgot to do our first dance. Haha :-P.
I think those are the main changes.
I guess I always dreamed of a spring wedding, too, but we went with August because we didn’t want to wait those extra months :-P.

Well I went through 3 dresses before I got to the one I actually wore. The first one was supposed to be a replica of a martin McCrea dress but it turned out horribly. The cake and punch afterwards (had an evening service) turned into a simple reception. The pig roast was not as large as originally planned.

Originally we thought about a destination wedding in the Caribbean. Then changed to a destination wedding somewhere warm in the US. Then decided to have it local in NYC. We changed our minds about a million times on spring vs. fall wedding too.
