Fashion is the way I introduce myself to the world, every day, without saying anything.

Thumbnail image for weds-day: wedding themes

Friends, it has been a busy week for me thus far. Sunday evening my sister and Mom came into town and we spent most of Monday poking around shops, eating, and capped the day off with Hamilton on Broadway. Which is one of the best pieces of theater I have ever seen. Any way I try to describe it will sound ineloquent so I’ll just say: go see it. It is one of those shows with true staying power, and the cast is absolutely brilliant.
Okay, now that that PSA is out of the way, let’s catch up on this wedding that is happening in 74 days (not that I am counting). When we got engaged, we never had a conversation where we agreed on wedding colors. I dreamt up a loose theme I dubbed “The Fox and The Raven,” ran it by Raven, who approved it / loved the idea, and then we began to piece together the look.

Here’s the original mood board I showed you all. And here’s an updated version based on what is actually happening:

Watercolor, sprinkles, dark pinks and neon green, vintage touches, fox decor, moody florals, evergreen trees and topiaries. These are a few of my favorite things.

Rather than having a complete, fleshed out theme and checking items off of a master list, our vision for the day have evolved based on what vendors we were able to book, decor we could find in our price range, and boring logistical things like that. Sure, ideally we’d plan out the entire day and make decisions based on what is aesthetically pleasing, (rather than aesthetically pleasing and also affordable). Ideally, we’d also move into a house with a white picket fence and have 2.5 kids before I turn 34. But life doesn’t happen that way…and neither should your wedding.

Be flexible with your vision for the big day; let it evolve and learn to make well thought out substitutions for must-have items. I’m so pumped for November 7th!

xoxo,
