Decor is my favorite part. It’s also most likely to easily get out of hand. I’m generally not a big spender. I don’t like a lot of frills and fuss, but sometimes you just want to go all out. A wedding is one of those times. I almost let that happen. However, since Husband and I were paying, I quickly laid those ideas to rest.
I had a vision. I knew what I wanted. I also had to remember to be open to change. Throughout the process, I kept reminding myself that it didn’t have to be perfect, as long as it was perfect enough. I also kept reminding myself that the minor things I obsessed over might not matter as much to my guests and I would be too busy getting married to notice. About a week before the wedding, I gave up all together. Then, things got better. Go figure.
I tried really hard to make it something Husband would like too. Something simple and elegant. Modern and romantic. Actually, now that I think about it, Mommy and I had talked extensively about candles. If I didn’t think I would have set the place (or myself) on fire, we definitely would have had more candles. But enough with all the talk. Let’s look at the pictures.
Part of the reason why I picked LOFT at Castleberry Hill was because of the chairs. I don’t like ugly chairs and I didn’t want us to have to pay for chair covers. We both liked these, so it worked out perfectly. Our drapery was done by A Touch of Drapery. It was a complete surprise to me and I love how they came out. I just told them what I wanted and I didn’t see any of it until I walked down the aisle.
It was actually more cost effective for us to buy our linens. So we did. I was actually able to get some that were much nicer than if we had rented. The centerpieces were simply floating candles in a bed of fresh rose petals. Oh and I made the table numbers myself. I really wanted to do something different so I opted for mirrors, since I hadn’t seen that done before.
Our table was the only one with fresh floral arrangements. We also had these super fab Marchesa crystal toasting flutes that we got off the registry…just in time to use them for the wedding. I love them too much. #SUITE
Hope you all enjoyed this week at our wedding.
