. . . into WEDDING CENTRAL!
First of all, let me give you a hint at how my daughter and I have gone about planning our (oops! HER!) wedding. We start with an idea, so we go to wedding heaven (which is also called the internet) and search for the perfect way to implement our idea. We find what we are looking for and make a decision. Oh, but wait . . . one of us finds a better idea somewhere (which is also called blogs) so we change our original decision. You would think we are finished, right? No! We both have begun perusing other people's ideas (which is called Pinterest) and we make the decision to completely dump our own original idea and go in an entirely different direction! Our wedding work sessions became 'look what else we can find' sessions and we were getting NOTHING accomplished!
So . . . the new rule is NO LAPTOPS, NO COMPUTERS, NO IPODS can be within our reach when creating wedding wonders! We have a plan and we are finally sticking to it!
Welcome to the first sneak peek of the elegant, but simple; vintage meets junky; white, ivory, cream, with a little black thrown in wedding of the century (at least in our little world). All created by two wanna be party planners/crafters who don't really know what in the heck they are doing!
One of the inspiration pieces . . .
I will always try to give credit where credit is due if I can. This lovely bottle came from A Little Bit French. I would have purchased more if they were available but unfortunately, Rhonda sells her bottles as fast as she makes them! So I made my own.
Bits and pieces that I have collected for years have finally been put to good use! I KNEW I was storing pretty little things for a reason! I'm NOT just a hoarder . . . I'm NOT!
The first doily was really, really hard to cut up.
And the jewelry was hard to give up.
And don't get me started on gluing a vintage Christmas ball on top!
But who else deserves a few of my treasures than my daughter? Besides, these bottles will look so pretty on MY windowsill after the wedding!
There will be more to show you soon. I think we both finally realized that there are LESS THAN 100 days until the big event so we are in a creating frenzy now. I don't have a dress (really, do I HAVE to wear a dress?) (I think I should do a whole post on just trying to find a dress - really, who wears the stuff that is offered in stores?), invitations haven't been ordered, I'm still working on painting (with CHALK paint!) a dresser that will be the alter and we haven't chosen any flowers but HECK, the super wedding planners (that would be US) have it all under control!!!
I think I still have time to link up with Faded Charm's White Wednesday, so I guess I will!
Are you all enjoying your summer? Is your's speeding along as fast as mine?
Now, a little piece of advice . . . if you have daughters, go search for your own wedding inspiration while you still have time!
