Ohhhh magilnyc: Your wedding was absolutely breathtaking. Very glam. And almost exactly like your inspiration board. My wedding is deep purple, black, and white. I’m thinking of adding a red rose bouquet and red shoes under my dress just for the added drama. Not quite sure yet. But the flowers in your wedding are sooo lush! Thanks so much for sharing.
@katieebee: Thank you so much. I love the idea of park purple with a splash of red. I am a total sucker for red roses (obviously). Now that my wedding is over, I am obsessed with helping my engaged friends make inspiration boards. Turns out nobody I know has ever heard of one. I am now the self-proclaimed ambassador of inspiration boards in NYC 🙂
These are very cool to look at. Unfortunately I can’t contribute because I never had an inspiration board. I didn’t really plan any of the details, they just kinda came together that day. Guess I was only concerned about how I would look, haha. I saw my MOH’s dress (she picked it) and our flowers (florist picked them with some very general guidance) for the first time that day, I had no idea what they would look like!
Here’s the inspiration:
And here’s the actual wedding: a little more vintage flare was introduced:
@meliss:Spoken like a true Princess. LOL. Unfortunately, I’m planning and executing everything myself. That would be so cool to give general info and be surprised like a guest at my own wedding!!
@katieebee: LOL, not Princess. Try lazy 🙂 I picked the vendors myself and paid for everything myself, but I have neither the aesthetic eye for these kinds of things nor the patience. I’m a simple practical girl, I crunch numbers for a living, so all these pretty girly things are not up my alley. It was more like “keep it under this budget, and please do something nice and tasteful”. I didn’t even have a color scheme – I’m the ultimate non-bridezilla! I do like looking at them here though, all the Bees are craftier than I am.
I didn’t create an inspiration board, but I went through my wedding journal and grabbed photos of the things that had originally caught my mind and created one today. Truth be told, my goal was to have a blue/white/silver wedding that somehow reflected my husband and I. So here’s what might have been my inspiration board:
And here’s what it ended up as:
Yay! I love this thread. 🙂
I know I’m a little late but I’m so happy I found this thread! I’m going to work on making an inspiration board. I’ve been so stressed because I’ve had all these ideas and couldnt figure out how to put them together. This has renewed my excitement:)
This an awesome thread. I hope some more Bee’s add to it!!
love this thread… cant wait to see how my vision comes into reality when i am all done
