Wedding Wednesday

My Wedding Inspiration | Vintage Peacock

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!

    […] inspiration board!  It’s hard to be creative and really visualize WEDDING THEMES when you have never planned a wedding before and I totally understand that. So! I’m going to be giving some ideas/inspiration every now and then! I’m not a fan of posting inspiration boards with images that aren’t mine but Pinterest made this too easy for me! (If you haven’t heard of Pinterest….you need to check it out!! Seriously.)  This week’s theme that SUMMER MELON and I’m really loving it! You could do SO much with this theme! Chunky coral and pink necklaces for bridesmaids, watermelon popcicles… this would be PERFECT for a backyard wedding!! Be sure to check out the color palette at too!  Wedding colors can be so AWESOME when you try something different!  Enjoy and be inspired!! […]
