Good morning everyone!!! I hope y'all are enjoying your coffee this morning!! Now as I promised I have something to share with y'all today and I need your opinions please.
Let me start out by painting a picture for you.........
You can follow this link to get more info and see some photos of the inside of the house, We will be taking some photos inside before the wedding.
here and check out all of their beautiful dresses (these are their photos)!! Ok so far what do you think? I guess I should tell you what our colors are shouldn't I? Ivory, Lite blue, dark blue and black. The theme which I'm sure you've figured out by now, is the 50's. It will be very pin-up, kinda in away. I have several tattoos and my honey has a few so it kind of fits the theme. The only things that are actually being bought brand new are the dresses that I showed you above, everything else will be coming from our local thrift store, goodwill and a few garage sales. We have a budget of $1,000 and after I've paid all of the deposits and bought the dresses we will have nearly $600 left :) I am so excited!!!
Now onto the reception.......... It will be indoors because our weather here changes every 5 minutes, I don't want to take any chances that things will be blown away. Our family's are pitching in to cook the meal (big money saver). The tables will have thrifted white sheets as table cloths with burlap running down the center, decorated with thrift store milk glass vases and mason jars with fresh flowers in them that we can buy at our local grocery store. We will have one table dedicated to photos of us when we were smaller all the way up until recently with our children. At the end of the same table where everyone will come in at there will be a white and rust colored bird cage that I bought for $3 at a local garage sale (will show you photos of this in a later post) this will be for the guests to put personal notes in. Our wedding cake will be made by my grandmother, she is the BEST baker I know and her cakes are the pretties I have ever seen. I cannot for the life of me remember where I found this photo at so if you know where it came from or it belongs to you please let me know so that I can link back to it.
These are paper cones I made out of an old torn up book that I found at a thrift store. They are for tossing birdseed after the reception when we leave. They will be sitting in an old suitcase by the door for everyone to grab on their way out. So what do y'all think? Do they need something or should I leave them just like they are? What do you think about everything else so far? Thank you for all of your opinions and I can't wait to share more details!!! So until next time............
