whimisical wedding weddnesday: week #1

I am so excited to start this series on my blog, whimsical wedding Wednesdays!

I realized I never really shared all of the wonderful wedding pictures our photographer took, as well as the details.

This series will give lots of great ideas and tips for planning your wedding, and wedding related events!

My bestie, Kara will be adding her wedding wisdom to this series as well, she got married last year and recently opened an etsy shop selling the most gorgeous wedding accessories. She and I planned our weddings around the same time and just as we like to joke that our personalities are yin and yang so were our weddings! It was so fun to see how different they both turned out but we both wanted to have a gorgeous wedding that looked way more expensive than it actually was!

Both Kara and I are lucky to be very decisive when it comes to making decisions, including our wedding details. We had an idea and then BAM! it was in our wedding plan. Not everyone is as quick to pull the trigger and the details of your wedding can sometimes be overwhelming. This series is meant to help spark ideas and also help get all the ideas floating around in your head into a more cohesive vision.

This week I am going to share with you the vision I had for my wedding.

Theme: hint of old Hollywood

Colors: black and white with pops of bright pink and Tiffany blue

I love the black and white look and I also love Pink! I didn’t want to torture my husband and the groomsmen by wearing tons of pink so I added the Tiffany blue color and loved the 4 color combo.

The guys wore black tuxedos, white shirts, Tiffany blue vents and bow ties and their boutonniere was the pop of pink.

I simply adore the strong black and white with the pops of bright pink and Tiffany blue.

I bridesmaids wore black strapless dresses and carried white hydrangea bouquets, simple and elegant. Their jewelry was pearls. This look added a little bit of old Hollywood.

I bought oversized Jackie-O sunglasses at Forever21 for a few of the photos as well as parasols from the knot. They added just the right amount of whimsy and fun to a few of the shots!
