Let me start by clarifying, Pinterest is great, we all love Pinterest, but there is cause for great concern when your whole wedding is planned from someone else’s vision for their special day.
Just like you, your big day should reflect your uniqueness, your gifts, your passions and your personal story!
Many women have dreamt big dreams for quite some time and it is easy to get caught up in a Pinterest Fairytale wedding, but when reality sets in of how much those flowers actually cost or what it really takes to upgrade to those fantastic chairs, linens, extended guest count, etc. it’s easy to spiral down the road of not enough.
Not enough money, not enough time, not enough whatever! Stop, just stop. Breathe.
Take out a blank piece of paper and for Pete’s sake dream again!
Get inspiration all day from Pinterest, but please stay true to yourself!
P.S. Mr. and Mrs. McBride's wedding pre-setup is shown above. If they shared that they wanted black and white stripes with pink and gold, someone could have said no way, but we said oh yes! Let's make it work and it did! Checkout more wedding photos in the gallery!
There are so many inexpensive ways to bring glamour to your wedding. My current favorite is floating candles. There is something about candles in water, maybe because they are elements of the earth. So as you are thinking about your day, consider adding some floating candles around.
No one knows where the vases or candles come from, so save yourself some money and stress.
You can incorporate floating candles as shown in the images above from Pinterest and/or consider:
1. Elegant long vases make for great centerpieces
2. Add marbles to tie your color theme together
3. Wine glasses work great for a vineyard wedding
4. Use them as your runner at the rehearsal dinner
