I did more googling and looking at wedding blogs more than anything. But, I already had a pretty good idea of what I wanted in my head, but sometimes I ran into something super cute that I really liked [like a candy buffet!].

After I figured out what I wanted.. i then found pinterest. There isn’t a whole lot on there i’ve wanted to use [even though our wedding is rustic-romance, being more romance than rustic].

@thefuturemrsD:  I did alot of google image searches with words like “simple, diy, cheap, wedding, reception, ceremony, etc”. Alot of pic trawling, but got alot of different ideas. And talking to people we know, finding skill sets available to us is probably going to be our best diy and money saving options. E.g. everyone we know is saving large jars and wine bottles to use as vases, a friend does great flowers and Future Mother-In-Law is growing a bunch of flowers in her garden for us, so decorations and bouquets will have a grand cost of maybe $300 to $500 if that?

My table inspiration pic, except we will have more flowers, and no plates.

  • Wedding: October 2013

I did alot of looking on wedding blogs like Style Me Pretty, Wedding Bee and Offbeat Bride. It did help for me to describe the mood for my wedding in 3 words. I also thought alot about my favorite movies and what type of romantic mood I wanted to set. 

I knew I wanted whimsical, glam, romantically lit, and asian-themed for my heritage. One of my favorite movies is In The Mood for Love. It’s got wonderful lighting and colors. So, I created a moodboard for my wedding to see what ideas I was gravitating towards.

I ended up with this.

I didn’t want our wedding to look like some random wedding; I wanted it to look like US. So my inspiration came from our home. Our colors are the same soft blues, neutrals, and metallics that I used to decorate our home. The vintage clip art on our table numbers reminds me of our West Elm shower curtain. And a bunch of the books and mercury glass used in the centerpieces came from our house. Here’s how it turned out:

For your centerpieces, what if you did cobalt bottles/jars with green hydrangeas in them?

Not sure what you’ll think of this but a friend did this a few years ago, and I’m totally borrowing it for my 2015 wedding. Have a cake centerpiece. Does multiple duty, centerpiece,  cake, and table number if you so choose.  you could do springy green fondant with multicoloured blue flowers?

From our destination itself. I have been googling photos of flowers native to the area, and gettin a feel for the location so that I can cater my dress and such to the “feel”

Jenny Garth’s wedding when she married that Peter Facinelli back in 2001.  hahaha I kid you not.

She had lots of Black Baccara roses , dark wine and gold colors and tons of candlelight.  I was in high school and I said “I want something like that!”

I kind of forgot all about it but when we started planning I was picking out all of the same things she had so I guess I kept my word!
