After getting engaged, the first thing I drew inspiration from was that sweet, southern charm. Although I was born and raised in Minnesota, nothing makes me happier than some great BBQ, sweet tea, country music and loyal friends and family. I knew my dream wedding encompassed a laid-back, feminine and rustic charm. I also think it is extremely important to include the groom in all wedding plans, and since my wedding colors are blush and champagne, I needed to add some masculinity to the theme. With some help from my mom, best friends and florist, I have decided to keep the ceremony very romantic and feminine, and to create a rustic look at the reception with items like wooden candlesticks and darker, more dramatic hues.
Some great advice someone shared with me when finding wedding inspiration is to look through interior design magazines, fashion magazines, and paint samples. Also, think of your favorite foods, drinks and music.
The photos below define my wedding theme and inspiration. They are light, romantic, a little whimsical and rustic. I hope these make my wedding vision a little more clear. I am beyond excited to share my decisions leading up to the big day and to see the final product this August!
