Enter the problem....I have been having NIGHTMARES...not Jason & Freddy nightmares, but WEDDING Nightmares. Myself, with the help of my very best friends are planning this all by ourselves. Most everything about our special day will be DIY, so why am I freaked out, I'm controlling it all, right? I am not a very "simple" person, I love things BIG and over the top, and quite frankly it's tough to achieve big and over the top on a very minimal budget. I just fear things will end up looking tacky and cheap, and I'm one those people that DOES care what people say about me...lol.
The theme, if we have to pick a theme would be "Country Chic"...never heard of it? I may or may not have made it up...just go with it. Lots of fresh spring flowers like hydrangeas and peonies, burlap runners, mason jars, galvanized buckets, monograms...you feeling my vision? I KNOW deep down it will turn out beautiful, and be unique, and exactly what I wanted, myself or my friends wouldn't have it any other way. I just need to stop stressing...every time someone asks if I'm ready for the wedding, my response "I'm ready for it to be over with"...granted it might be the truth, I just want to know that everything is in order and that it will be my perfect day.
So in short, what am I telling you all today...ELOPE, ELOPE, ELOPE...only kidding...
Here are a few sneak peeks of some actual wedding items, and inspirations!
|This will be my bouquet, but wrapped in twine. The girls will have the same just a little smaller.|
|Nate is building me 2 of these from this Shanty2Chic tutorial to put hydrangeas in on our food tables|
|This is my centerpiece inspiration for my low tables, with purple/green hydrangeas and white peonies|
|These are our actual favors. Homemade peach and strawberry jam by my Mamaw|
Most importantly I have to remember...
I hope y'all are having a great week. For fun, and because I need more things to have nightmares about...what is something that went bad wrong at your wedding? And what are some things I might be forgetting, that I definitely don't need to forget?
