My theme came from my last name. It is both a color and a flower. One of my cousins suggested it a few years ago. It took on it’s own feel of being more rustic-chic but that’s where it all started.

  • Wedding: December 2013

Ours came about because we wanted an off-season wedding (December-March here in Seattle), and while I was shopping one day at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, I stumbled across these really neat wide candle holders. I thought they would be perfect as a base to a ruffle tree and so I called Fiance to say “Hey, what about a winter/holiday themed wedding?” He was on board.

So I guess ours happened because we are both deal-shoppers. lol.
The rest of decor items were purchased on clearance sales after Christmas last year.

I was feeling like I was lacking focus in my “theme” with my colors being navy and white. An episode of David Tutera (right?) featured a “shabby chic” theme and it just hit me. We’re integrating silver and blush with the original colors but doing a bit of the “country garden” in our decor with some woodsy elements, which is perfect because my Fiance family is super country and if it were up to them, the wedding would be outdoors in a field! The pops of navy will play to my preppy side! I love it!

  • Wedding: August 2015

My parents have been boaters since before I was born so every summer growing up was spent on the Chesapeake. When SO and I started dating, one of the first times we were all together (my parents and us) was when we went to Annapolis, MD for the weekend by boat. It was also the first place we said “I love you”. He fell in love with the town just like I had loved it my whole life, so we *hope* to be married there with a sort of old/historic (garden-y, married in an old historic building) meets nautical theme (and my nautical I mean some touches of navy, driftwood, and perhaps nautical knotwork but nothing kitsch) to essentialize what we love about this town 🙂 And we hope all of our guests explore everything Annapolis has to offer while they are there!

Our fave holiday is Halloween and we love Tim Burton films! So we are going with a Gothic Glam/Dark Romance theme.

Keeping the colors to Jewel Tones – Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Amythyst with Silver and Black.

Here is a link to my Pinterest Page where I have been collecting heaps of ideas.

@VictorianChick:  I was looking at wedding gowns online and automatically fell in love with the vintage 1920s gowns. Also the beaded flapper gowns. I wanted it to be more party-ish back when I first got engaged, but now that I’m older, I’m leaning more towards a classy small wedding and dinner party. I’ll still be using the drinks and cigars because, well, it just makes sense. Lol

We are having a travel theme. It reflects our favourite past time as a couple. Also the groomsmen are having a DC justice league theme to their attire & the grooms cake. Fiance is desperate to be superman for the day! DC is also the initials of my new last name so it’s a nod to that.
