I have admitted before that I spend WAY too much time on wedding blogs. I stalked these blogs BEFORE I was engaged and now that I can justify it, I let it consume hours of my time! (yes, I said hours….don’t judge) I love wedding ideas that are new and fresh and CHEAP! The more I stalk, the more I realize that the possibilites are endless when it comes to designing a wedding!
After Michael proposed, I remember people asking immediately “What are the colors?! Blue? Green? TEAL?!” I was so overwhelmed. This was a huge decision. The colors of a wedding really dictate that overall feel of the day! I wanted them to be perfect. So riding home from dress shopping (literally 4 days after we got engaged!), I thought of peacocks! I loved them, they were classy, and elegant and TEAL! I decided to go with it! Teals and browns and greens, it was exactly what I wanted! I immediately told Michael the idea and like usual, he said to go with it! I started planning immediately. I found deep teal bridesmaids dresses and started collecting antique votives and vases. Figuring out our theme was what really allowed me to start planning! Before, I had no idea what direction to go in.
One thing that really helped was collecting images from wedding blogs that really caught my eye. I LOVE creating inspiration boards and so I thought I would share a little inspiration for my wedding! Enjoy!
