I mentioned a couple weeks ago that my brother recently proposed to his love. Well, what I didn't say is that they were/are planing a two month engagement (eeeek! those crazy love-birds!)
The past few days my mother and I went to visit them in the dfw area to try and help with wedding planning. And you know what I've decided? Being newly engaged is the worst time ever to plan a wedding! All you want to do is sit around and gaze into each other's eyes! (awww) <3 It is the time you probably care least about the color of ribbons and table cloths. Which is (TOTALLY) fine. Anyways, they have decided on a intimate, house wedding with minimal flowers and frills, just the people they love, vows and cake. (go them, huh?)
While thinking of weddings though, I started to remember some other beautiful weddings. First, I will share with you my darling sister's special day. Take note, because I will share with you some creative tips to help decorate your own wedding (all credited to my amazing mother).
|reoccurring colors help stress your 'theme'|
|Because scrabble is this couple's favorite game, we placed game pieces all over the dining room spelling out 'sweet-little-nothings'. My favorite was 'the ol' ball and chain' :)|
|Another suitcase for guests to place cards and letters (also filled with old family photos).|
Having a cool old jar (or in this case a gravy boat) to place pens in at the sign-in table can help reiterate your colors/theme... and just looks cute!
I just love the black and white patterns with all the green and purple, it definitely made for an elegant wedding. Of course, it helped that the couple was absolutely adorable :)
