Wedding Inspiration

Hello friends! I thought I would share some wedding details and inspiration with you today. Don't worry, this will still be a decorating blog, but right now weddings are definitely what's on my brain, not to mention my house is torn to pieces as I'm moving out in a couple weeks, so there's not much to show off : )

Matt and I are getting married on June 17, 2011 at the church I grew up in. I want the whole thing to be very light, airy and vintage-themed (of course!). I'm also not really into traditional. Of course we'll be doing all the "standard" wedding things, but I really want to do everything with a bit of a twist.

Our colors are dove gray and white, with accents of soft sage green. The bridesmaids and groomsmen will wear dove gray to give the whole ceremony the light and ethereal look I'm going for. Here are some inspiration photos...

Isn't the above bridesmaid dress to die for?? LOVE!

This is my favorite example of gray bridesmaid dresses, and what I'm trying to get close to. These dresses are from Forever 21 and cost $33! They don't carry them anymore, but I'm still searching for their twins!

And here is where we're having our reception...

Exploration Place

Exploration Place decked out for a wedding.

Exploration Place is a local science museum (I guess that's the closest thing to it). It's built over the Arkansas River, and the Grand Hall where we'll have our reception overlooks the water. We are so excited about it because the room is all windows and will be so light-filled and just gorgeous. We can't wait!

And here's a few more photos that I'd love to pull some inspiration from for our "look."

What do you think? Lovely no? I'll have some more posts on some of the "twists" and diy stuff we'll be doing for the big day, so stay tuned!

{live beautifully}


P.S. I'm a bad blogger and have no idea where I got most of these images. Probably a lot of them came from here.

    Gorgeous colors!!! I'm looking to do gray bridesmaid dresses too :)

    Look at Express, they had some great gray chiffon tea length dresses. Very airy and pretty. They will cost more than forever21, but still not as much as a bridal store.
