I am hopeless when it comes to trying to match things or work within in colour scheme….I always end up finding something I really love that just doesn’t fit in. We decided to go with a vintage theme, as our whole home is decorated in that style (it looks like Pinterest exploded, seriously) and working with many, many colours, though I’m trying to stay closer to around the blush/ivory/robins egg/gold tones as much as possible!

We’re doing a vintage garden wedding. Basically using different shades of lightish pinks, ivory/white, and gold glitter, with some subtle natural wood fixtures as well (like wood slices under our centerpieces.) I wanted a burlap and lace, but SO hated that idea, so I changed it to lace and pearls, but that was a little too girly. So hopefully the natural wood will man it up a bit.
It’s going to be a hot mess.

- Wedding: May 2015 - St Peter\'s Church, East Maitland, and Bella Vista, Newcastle
We did a book theme, but didn’t go too overboard with it – our centrepieces were books which were important to us, and they doubled as favours – we invited people to take them home at the end of the night and I think we had three left. Our tables weren’t numbered but were named after our favourite authors, and the ceremony program had everyone listed under “cast of characters”. We’re both (obviously) total book fiends so it worked well. Family is also important to us so I collected family wedding photos from both of our families and we had them on display at our wedding. Our colours were red and silver.

We recently started describing our theme as a midsummer night’s dream, without recognizing it was an established theme. For us, it means a totally woodland, outdoor venue and a glam affair with a little mystery and mischief. That’s what we wanted and then realized it reminded us a lot of the play haha.
