I naturally agree, that not every wedding should or will have a theme. With that being said; I was one of those little girls playing house, and don’t doubt for a second there were not weddings included! I would marry my barbies, and dream about the day that I would too, share in that exciting occasion. Cliche right? Maybe, but I was one of those girls, now a woman and those dreams, are becoming realities. When I met Mr. Jansen, I knew it would be forever. We both knew, as we wished on the same star, the same wish, on the same night.
So, naturally, I am as excited as any other to put those dreams to the test and see what I can come up with for our big day. That’s just it though. OUR big day. So the dilemma begins a brewin’!
How do I pull of this one day to represent us both, our love, our forever after? See, if he had it his way the wedding would look like fast and the furious. That might be an exageration, but cars; that’s what he does for a living, that’s his passion.
There are 2 ‘themes’ I’ve been struggling with. One would look something like this…
He has always called me his princess. He truly does act like a prince, and I do love the color pink! So, why not go with a ‘royal’ theme. One that represents the romance of our origin; our story? This theme would involve crystals, and soft candlight amongst the room. Color splashed on the walls and fabric enclosing the room, giving an intimate feel. For the color palette, I was thinking either pink and champagne, or pink, yellow, and lavender.
Though, on the other hand; There is another theme, very near and dear to me. One that reminds me much of my great grandmother. My mother always told me growing up that I was born in the wrong era. Thus, constantly bringing me back to the vintage theme that I just can’t kick! It would look something like this….
Anyway, you guys get the point. Tables would be adorned with pastel colors, summery and light. There would be birdcages, vintage buttons, and vintage mix-match unique plates and cutlery! I would like to think of this theme as a cross between vintage-shabby chic and Marie Antoinette inspired wedding!
All in all, I want to represent us…not me! It’s hard though, and I know Mr. Jansen would ultimately want me to be happy.
Can anyone give advice on how they dealt with representing yourself, while not losing your husband to be’s identity through all the planning? Let me know what you think!
