Wedding Wednesday

Happy Wednesday, friends. Today, I want to talk about weddings.

No, not mine, my sister's wedding. She got engaged back in December and has decided on a September wedding. Since December she and I have feverishly been discussing her plans for venues, dresses, flowers, music, food, and all the rest of the "stuff" that comes with having a wedding. So, for today's post, I thought I'd share some of her ideas and dreams for her wedding.

Ashton & Spencer
September, 2013

  • Outdoor wedding & ceremony at a rustic, clubhouse located on a private lake
  • Rustic, country, casual with hints of vintage southern style
  • 200 people or less
  • Colors: brown, tan, champagne, canvas, pale green
  • Bride and groom's favorite foods and barbecue with fixings
Timber centerpieces. Drill out the middle an use as a vase.

Mason jars
pretty center pieces.
Best idea for a wedding reception. No need to pay a bartender! lol

The photo above is of the bridesmaids dresses she chose. I put together this little palette to show her what the colors would look like together. Y'all, these dresses are from the Target Bridesmaid dress line. They are inexpensive, cute and have pockets!!! Win-win-win! She has 6 attendants: 3 in this chocolate color called Spanish Brown and 3 in this lighter color called Blank Canvas. (Don't worry y'all, she has graciously agreed to allow me to wear the Spanish brown. The Blank Canvas would be very close to my skin tone. Either way, I'll probably be getting a spray tan.)

She's also going with white and pale green hydrangeas. Gorg.

The closer we get to September, the more excited I am.

Photos taken from here.


  1. How much do I love the Jack and Coke dispensers! It's funny, Ashton was just telling me all of these details last night and talking about how much you were helping her and I was thinking "April ought to blog about this!" and now you have.

  2. Man I love weddings.

    I love the tree cutout centerpieces. And the colors. I am going to have to look into the Target bridesmaid dresses for Rachel's wedding!

  3. Love the dresses and color combo. Perhaps wedding belles will be in your future in the next year or so. Sounds like the new beau must be going pretty good if you gone mums on it ;-).

  4. ahhh weddings..... despite the stress of planning it all, my favorite part is when it all comes together :) praying for sanity, joy, happiness, and great bonding time with your sis! and the colors are gorgeous! can't wait for more posts!

  5. I saw this pin right after I read this. Maybe bridesmaid's nails?

  6. Looks beautiful! I love the palette.


  7. Haha, I love the Coke and Jack Daniels! Also, the bridesmaid dresses are beautiful. I had no idea Target had a bridesmaid line! And the hydrangeas... swoon. Ashton's wedding sounds like it's going to be amazing!!
