I was never the girl who dreamed about her wedding day and had every detail planned out before Brian and I got engaged. To be honest, I had never really thought about planning my own wedding until the ring was on my finger and it was staring me in the face as kind of a necessity. In some ways, I'm glad I didn't have any preconceived notions about what our day would be like and could make the decisions with Brian as a couple. On the other hand, it has kind of made having a 'vision' for my wedding difficult. People are asking me all of these questions about what I picture for our wedding day, and I just kind of have to give them a confused look and say, "Well...I've never really thought about it..."
That was definitely the case for the choosing colors for our wedding. (I also never really understood inspiration boards, but they are all the rage in the wedding world. So these are mine.) I didn't really have any big ideas about what I wanted our wedding look like, so I didn't really know that there was all of these decisions that depended on a color scheme or some kind of 'theme.' That's just not me, and it's definitely not us! Eventually, we decided that a pretty blue would be the focal point. An accent color will be peach, an ode to Georgia and the life we are about to embark on together in the Peach State. The rest of the colors have been somewhat inspired by a sunset over the water, sunsets being one of our 'things.' Hopefully the colors reflect the bright, fresh, and fun mood I hope to bring to our spring wedding. I also like that it's not a typical wedding color scheme!
I really hope it will all come together like I'm envisioning, now that I am finally starting to picture our wedding day. :)
P.S. This weekend, after agonizing over it for weeks, I finally bought THE dress! Unfortunately, it will not be making an appearance here until after the wedding day...Brian has been known to check in on the blog, and I don't want to ruin the surprise!
