Seeing it Everywhere / Gold Geometry

I’m on trend and don’t even know it.  I am in the midst of planning our wedding (!!!) and given my love of all things paper, petal and bash *wink* I’m sure you can understand how fun and difficult all the decisions can be.

I came across these gold cubes on CB2 and thought they could be a great prop for table decor, hanging behind the alter or as a general theme.

CB2. $16.95 CA for the set.

Then my friend showed me these escort cards.

When I saw them, it solidified my decision to use a gold, geometric pattern as a theme.  Plus wouldn’t these make a great DIY?  Here are some other goodies I’ve found that I’m excited to incorporate.

The florist we’re using has this piece she used for another wedding.  Perfect, right?

Here are a few other ideas I’m not sure if I’m using but are cute nonetheless.

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.

I’m so excited to marry R!!!
