Not A Mason Jar In Sight

In case you didn't already know, I'm planning a very important wedding this year ... mine! Or in case Dave is reading, "ours".

Lots of people have been surprised to learn that I won't be having a vintage theme. That's right, none of my vintage rentals will be making an appearance at our wedding. No antiques, no lace doilies, not a mason jar in sight.

"Whaaaaaaaat! Why not?"

I'm not going to lie, back in my single-lady days I used to imagine a gorgeous vintage barn wedding.

The reality is, while it's definitely my style,
it's not ours.

With any wedding, I think it's important that the details reflect the whole couple, not just the bride. I would hate for grooms to show up and be totally surprised (or worse yet, disappointed) with the look and feel of their wedding.

It seems like it's been a while since I shared plans for the big day, so here's a link to the Pinterest board where I've been stashing all the colourful, balloon-filled goodness. It's loud, it's fun, and most importantly it's "us"!
