- Wedding: October 2012
So I was in Michaels yesterday, dragging my Fiance through the aisles looking for ideas of DIY home decore (we just bought a house and are moving in April 1…yay!) I was having a hay day picking up items and yammering of about what we could do with it and where we could put it (and he was being such a good sport about it too) when we came upon their new items. WOW. I was floored at how everything could work with my home decore ideas, and my wedding!! Right now I am loving the antique romantic soft hue look. They had birdcages, ceramic birds, old looking hollowed out books, moss balls, antique looking luggage and travel cases, frames and more. I bought a book and a cute little bird for our house and we went on our way, me as happy as could be.
Last night, when I was supposed to be sleeping, I kept thinking about all of the other items I left behind and how I could use them in our wedding. The colours I have chosen are rather bold and autumn-y – aubergine, ivory and orange. I am going to have lanterns on the tables rather than flowers and wanted a birdcage for the card box. Now I keep changing my mind. I had seen tables identified with places rather than numbers a while ago, and since my Fiance is Italian, I wanted to do different places in Italy. Now I keep thinking, maybe I could use the old luggage as a card box, change the orange to gold (I need to keep the dark purple, I’m absolutely in love with that colour) add some softer more romantic touches and move away from the fall theme.
I want to know, how many times have you changed your wedding since you got engaged? Is it normal to totally change your mind, and what if I start collecting things and change it again??
