Wedding Wednesday || One Year To Go!

Can you believe that one year from this Friday (March 21) I will be walking down the aisle!? Well, if you can I certainly can’t. My fiance and I had been dating for so (so, soooo) long that the thought that he is actually going to be my husband still blows my mind. Although to be 100% honest, sometimes I find myself still a little be in awe of the fact that we’re even together in the first place. I had a massive crush on him for a while before we started dating, and once we started dating it took me months to actually believe it. There was lots of pinching myself going on!

So – enough of the gushing and back to the Wedding Wednesday that you came here for!

I’ve had a vision in mind for a while as to what I wanted my wedding to be. I’ve been describing it alternately as “vintage glam,” “Gatsby,” or “Edwardian/Gilded Age.” For those keeping track at home, they’re all similar styles that are distinctly different. (In fact, the Gilded Age directly preceded the Edwardian Era, they weren’t actually the same time period.) We’ve booked all of our big vendors (Venue, Cake, Photographer, DJ, and Limos) and the last two vendors we have to nail down are the florist and the stationary.

The thing about these last two vendors is that I’ve got to be able to express my vision in a way that makes sense. I’ve been wracking my brain trying to figure out how I could explain it to them when I found the perfect example to show them (while browsing at the Papyrus store in the mall).

Wedding Frame


This frame is absolutely perfect. It’s mother of pearl with pearls and crystals. Exactly what I had in mind.

I purchased the frame in the larger 8 1/2 x 11″ size and will be using it during our reception to hold a poem dedicated to relatives who can’t be with us on our big day. But until then, I’ll be toting it with me to planning meetings to say “everything must revolve around this!”

What do you guys think of my inspiration – cute or corny?
