Date: Not yet set! Location: Church - Small and old. If I could get married in the little Catholic Catherdal in Antwerp, Belgium, that's where we'd be wed. None of these huge monstrosities that look like stucco office buildings. Reception Venue - Somewhere light and elegantly casual, preferably in a well groomed, French Renassaince style garden, Somewhere outside Houston, TX Ideals: A Fall wedding, with the reception being during sunset. (But with Abel & a lot of his friends and family in the Navy, who knows when we'll be 'permitted' to have it, hehe) Guests: Close friends and family, hoping my family from Scotland and his distant family in Mexico and those in the US Navy may join us on our special day! Theme: Casual elegance with a 'nod' to old English inspired Colonial America during the late 1800's.I plan on a lot of fun, DIY projects being included. Dining: No "Chicken or Fish?" queries here. I plan on doing something trendy and different, with a less "These are our caterer's..." feel, and more of a "Look at what we cooked for you!" feel. Bridesmaid Attire: My bridesmaids will not be clones. I will choose a single color, or possibly 2 colors, and then each of my bridesmaids will be able to choose a dress that fits them and their own personal style, as long as I approve it to be the right shade.
The monogrammed letters on the table is a great decorating idea that I am probably going to add to my long list of idea's for my own wedding, but if I could get them in wrought iron, or maybe wood, that would match my theme better.
I love the sunflowers and wildflowers around the archway. I don't know if I would use that exact flower, maybe just wildflowers all around and jasmine. That way whenever I'm getting married, I'll be smelling Jasmine the whole time and for the rest of my life, whenever I smell Jasmine, I'll be reminded of our wedding and our everlasting and ever present love :-)
Houston might not be as devoid of beauty as I thought. I'll have to show this picture to the photographer. I like the idea of having our wedding party stand behind us, and I like the idea of the guys not matching in an exact sort of way, even if I may want the girls to match that way.
I really like the idea of sprinkling flowers down the aisle of the venue. Especially different flowers other than the usual rose petals. These even look like they might be wildflowers, which would be 'right up my aisle'.
Really liking that hair do, but probably only if I had highlights in my hair. I like the multi-facetted look the highlights give it, but it probably wouldn't be as elaborate looking if you didn't have the highlights. I am also always a fan of the birdcage veil.
