Wedding Wednesday

So, this should be a notice that y'all can expect a bit more wedding talk here on the old blog. I'll limit it to only being on Wednesdays to spare those of you who hate wedding stuff from having to stomach too much of it. But you can expect me to talk more about my own wedding from here on out on Wedding Wednesdays.

Yes, MY WEDDING! It still feels so surreal. But it's happening. And I have turned into a wedding planning machine, y'all. Over the weekend, M and I picked a date, location (for ceremony AND reception), developed guest lists, worked on the reception food "menu, picked/asked attendants, picked out colors/theme and asked the minister. We've still got to finalize the date we chose with our minister, but once it's final, I'll let everyone know. :) Oh, and we're aiming for April 2014, so I've just got a few months to put on something spectacular!

Anywho, I'm going to show y'all one of my mood boards. This will kind of give you an idea of where I'm going. Let me just state that I want this wedding to be remembered as unique and whimsical. There will be some elements of tradition (church wedding) but then some new/more modern ideas (candy buffet!).

Some of the elements the wedding will include are:

  • Bright colors (and a lot of them)
  • Chalkboards
  • Either glitter, sequins or sprinkles. Maybe all three. 
  • Lots of different flowers
  • Sugar, candy and desserts
  • Navy and gray (my fave neutrals!)
  • A Milk & Cookies station
  • Cardigans and statement necklaces (but did you expect anything else?)
Yay! I'm so excited to share my ideas with you. If you have any ideas or suggestions, I'd love to hear them! 

Have a fabulous Wednesday. Hump DAAAYYYYY!


  1. Oh, man. I am so stinkin' excited for this. And, just mentioning all of the decisions you've made, made me want to ask what they all were. Can't wait to see you again and hear more about the details!


    I'm gonna love Wedding Wednesdays.
