I spend a lot of time on Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes and the Ruffled blog.
If you know what I am talking about then we are on the road to becoming best friends. I do this to search for new ideas to further my own wedding photography business in Chicago, but also just to drool over what other brides are doing.
Sure, I don’t exactly have a ring on my finger just yet, but a girl can dream, right?
The problem is that with so many options available, I am having trouble choosing one coherent theme. If I put all of my hopes and wishes together into one wedding, it might be more Alice in Wonderland than anything else. That is why I am going to break down my dream wedding into several different blogs, each with a new theme. I hope that this will help you with your own wedding planning, plus it will justify my need to drool a little more over everything that the internet has to offer.
So my first theme is an outdoor wedding with the ceremony being held in a barn. I imagine that my groom and his best buds will be wearing suspenders, maybe some tweed vests and jaunty caps:
As for me, there are a million dresses that I might choose, but I love this one with the lacy cap sleeves and scalloped edging:
Our ceremony would be held in the middle of a field, or under a giant tree that feels like it could only exist in a dream. I would have cute accents like these flowers in bottles, which would be easy to do myself. I love this altar made of books, since I am an avid reader, but I might go for something with twigs, berries and flowers.
If possible, we would stand on a giant hay bale and kiss as the sun sets behind us. We will also bring along our adorable dog – yet to be adopted – and he/she would be a ring bearer and all around cute member of the wedding party.
Our barn ceremony would be decked out to the max, yet still conveying a sense of rustic chic. Is that a thing? There will be chandeliers and tons of greenery, but won’t feel so stuffy that people won’t take off their shoes and dance the night away.
Doesn’t that sound like a beautiful day? It sure does to me.
