The INSPIRATION TEASERS – Details & Decorations

Decorations & Details

 

So there they are. ūüôā Some snapshots inside my brain for my wedding. On this one little board are 17 of the different DIY projects that I plan to take on. (Did I really just say 17 of the projects… as in there are more?? I think I’ve lost it. lol) ¬†

 

The colors, the textures, the tons of DIY ideas, the everything are just… so romantic, and soft, modern with a twinge of vintage. I love it all. We shall see what of all of this I can¬†achieve. Making inspiration boards is very helpful to clarifying to yourself what you want, especially if your mind goes a mile a minute with tons of ideas like mine does. If anything I have too many ideas for the wedding. haha.

 

A good resource if you don’t have or know how to use Adobe InDesign like I made these in, is Polyvore. Polyvore is a website that you can take snippets and pictures of things online and gather them into neat collages of inspirational coolness… even if you know nothing about image editing! It is super easy.

 

We will be at the 6 month mark next Friday. Why does that make me feel a little panicky? lol Maybe it’s not panicky. Maybe it’s excited. ūüôā If it is panicky, then it’s because of my insane amount of DIY to do.¬†

 

Until next time…

The INSPIRATION TEASERS – Flowers

3 04 2009

Hi-dee ho, bloggerinos. ūüôā

Today is flower day at Artsy Bride. Behold!

Flowers

I am in a mini pickle with the flowers… a sweet gherkin if you will. ūüėõ
I cannot decide between bold bright colors like the first bouquet on the board (top left corner) or more subdued, garden textured, pale colors. My favorite image of all of these is definitely the first one, the gorgeous colored bouquet with the teal ribbon around the stems that so conveniently matches my colors… it is just gorgeous. But if I am going to DIY my flowers I have to be able to find these and affordable sources of flowers are limited, and then the selections of said affordable sources are even more limited. Another option would be to stick with a single type of flower or color which I could do with my affordable options. Then there is the option of a candlelight reception as well. Ahhh decisions, decisions. More to come on this later!

signing out until the next post…
