Bash / My Own

It’s the ultimate bash.  Our wedding.  R and I are excited for so many reasons – declaring our love and lifelong commitment in front of our family and friends, having all of those people in one place, a honeymoon 😉  But let’s be honest, I am pretty darn excited about the paper, the petals and obviously, the bash.  The funny thing is, for a lady who covets event ideas like I do, planning my own wedding is totally overwhelming.

We decided on a short engagement so we have a number of things figured out already:

  • Goal: a super fun party with our family and friends
  • Vibe: casual, elegant and representative of us
  • Things I care about: colorful flowers, unique paper goods, people having a good time, the whole thing ‘coming together’, DIY’s
  • Things R cares about: great food, that everyone dances, having an open bar, that the flowers are not ‘girly’, no boutonnière
  • Things I don’t care about: the exact flowers, band vs. dj, desserts, favors/welcome bags/things-that-cost-a-lot-of-money-that-no-one-cares-about,
  • Things R doesn’t care about: decor details (yes!), DIY’s (double yes!), being involved in the details
  • Details: yellow, teal, hot pink, black and white stripes, sparkly gold. Secondary colors: jewel tones.

Here is the vibe board I put together.  I use pinterest but wanted something that with one quick glance, would help anyone understand what we’re going for.
