Hello lovelies! The closer it gets to Christmas the more I start thinking about wedding everything! I'm not getting into Christmas the same way I normally do. But next year....watch out!
I just wanted to mention that my Jason participated in a mini triathlon yesterday! I couldn't be there because of church and work but I'm so proud of him. He does way more exercise and physical activity than me nowadays.
Here are a few images that are inspiring my wedding decoration plans. Even though I would like the wedding theme to be elegant and pretty I really want to add a touch of whimsy and little pops of colour. My main colours were white and silver but my bridesmaids are very colourful in pale pink, lilac and aqua blue.
Considering I have a great love for mail this would be absolutely perfect! It could be the guestbook. You write a little note and leave it in one of the slots.
This is an alternate version to the normal photo booth, a kissing booth! Though it will still just be a photo booth for us.
I adore this table spread. The chandeliers, the colourful bunting, the lolly jars. Instead of a lolly (ok candy we call them lollies here) buffet, I thought we could have a dish/bowl of lollies (maybe Kisses) and have them at each table and make them a part of the centrepieces?

Again with my love for mail, this stood out to me. Writing a little note and popping them into the tiny mailbox. This could be another alternative to a guestbook.
Another idea I love was this Wishing Tree. Again another alternative guest book idea. Then it could be displayed for awhile in our future home, if we decided to use this idea.

The jars of lollies which could be put onto each table. Or there could be a scattering around the guest book table/Wishing Well/gift table. The colourful lollies could give the decorations a nice bit of colour.

Another great example of a Wishing Tree. I like the thought of using pretty patterned papers for the guests to write their wishes/thoughts etc.
Another idea which I adore. I was thinking they could be displayed with the centre pieces or to decorate the guest book table etc. For awhile I thinking of popping them on sticks and putting them in a small vase as alternative to flowers since I'm not having them for centre pieces.

This is an invitation and I think it's brilliant! This would be perfect for displays or it could be an idea for a program (might be a bit time consuming and more costly for that though). As an avid reader this is just gorgeous.
The personalised matchbooks would be a lovely add on if we decide to have sparklers. And I know we will definitely have lots of photo frames scattered all over the place.
As a butterfly lover, this is precious. When I saw them on the branches I wanted to have branches in a vase as a centre piece with butterflies adorning them. Or the beautiful lantern with the butterflies and mirror. I thought we could have a mini lantern with votive or tea lights inside and a butterfly attached to the handle and the mirror would be a lovely extra touch.
The whole photo shoot was so beautiful. This is more for future inspiration for my birthday or just a girls day.
Well those are just some ideas running through my head. It's getting close to Christmas so I should have a few more Christmas posts before I go all out on everything wedding. Let me know if you like the ideas?? Or have your own suggestions.
And tonight we are looking at another townhouse! Plus we are going to try and do our registry and pick up our rings (it better be right this time). And maybe do a bit of Christmas shopping which we are so behind on. We'll see how much we can get done.
Have a wonderful week!!
