Wedding Wednesday: White Weddings


As most you already know, I'm getting married next year. Our wedding is a little less than 51 weeks away, but thus far we haven't done much. Yes, we have our venue, which is a huge relief, but the planning process has been on a stand still. There's so much to do and we get easily distracted - ADD, perhaps? Well, we need to get moving because 2012 will be here before you know it! In my attempt to get organized, I bought a binder ($12! - is it me, or is that a lot for a binder?) to gather all my inspirations. Also, I thought it’ll be fun to start an inspiration series. From now on, every Wednesday will be reserved for wedding ideas. Hope you guys like it.





















Darren and I (more so me) haven't decided a theme/colors yet. But, originally I had my heart set on a white wedding. Everything about it is just perfect; simple, understated, elegant and glamorous. What's there not to love? Of course, this was way before the famous wedding of Kate Middleton & Prince William (and Kim K. too, I guess). I predict white will be huge for 2012 and I rather not be a part of that trend. But, gosh darn it; why do I have to love everything about it?!

  6. !! I love wedding planning time! The white wedding would be very elegant and gorgeous! You can definitely make it your own, or add pastel accent colors. Perhaps blush, lavendar, touch of baby blue. You can still get that white elegance streamlined effect, while not getting caught up in the all white (if that's what you want to avoid). Otherwise, do what you want :D

  7. I hate when it's been done by highly photographed, highly popular couples so that it becomes hijacked by a bunch of others who will try to emulate the trend and sully what you originally had in mind.

    That being said, don't let that deter you... Maybe try adding in another accent color? White and.... something vibrant. I can't imagine you in white shoes, anyway. Go for something brilliant and use that as your accent color and use it very sparingly. A small flower here in a big center piece, a ribbon there and white everything else. That way your white wedding will stand out more and no one could ever accuse you of imitating anyone.

    Being that it's your wedding, I'm sure you'd come up with something that is very YOU without sacrificing what you love. JUST DO IT. You only do it once, if you live your life right. :)

  8. How grand of a scale do you plan on? If you really like an all white wedding I don't think it being "trendy" should deter you. From years to come you'll forget about all the celeb weddings anyway. Do you read Joanna Goddard's blog? She used to blog about weddings often (low key ceremonies especially). She once mentioned a wedding where all the bridesmaids wore white but the bride wore pink, lol.

  12. A white wedding is classic though, I don't think it can really be considered a "trend"... you should still do it! Looking forward to your new Wednesday features, I love wedding inspo!

  24. You don't have to be uber traditional and have an all white wedding everywhere. For example, you can have your ceremony with colorful flowers and then have the reception in all white, which looks very dramatic at night with proper lighting. And I know you are pretty and don't need to worry about standing out but please don't let your bridesmaids wear white. You should be the only stand out on your special day. That was Kim K's biggest blunder. No matter what I'm sure it will be amazing!
