So we’ve realized that we’ve been pretty quiet when it comes to the planning of our wedding in the online world. The questions that we’ve been asked so far about the wedding:
So after all the questions, we figured – hey why not share our plans thus far, and the plans that didn’t pan out so well…..
Since our engagement, we’ve intended to do the wedding in our backyard. It was something very personal to us – intimate, outdoors, and relaxed. After doing a thorough analysis of the costs of renovating, time needed to fix our large yard, rental costs, having 100+ guests in our tiny home, factoring in we only have one restroom, the number of photo sessions we have this year, etc, etc… – we decided to not have the shindig in our “digs.” However, before we nixed the backyard idea, we made a quick mock up of what we wanted our tables to look like. We used what we had around our house and even picked the oranges. It was to be extremely rustic with an organic feel to it. Not to say our reception will not be like that – but we are taking pieces of what we originally wanted and including that in T&C’s wedding 2.0.
So check out wedding version one! Don’t judge – this definitely was no Grace Ormonde styled shoot!
Instead of oranges we were going to have centerpieces with peaches inside of a fruit barrel with smaller mason glass jars with Queen Anne flowers inside of them.
We also wanted to use white butcher paper as a part of the table scheme and leave crayons in our wedding colors (peach and brown) for guests to doodle on…sorta like Italian restaurants.
To continue with the organic feel of the table scape, we also intended to include wooden utensils as well as bamboo biodegradable plates….Luckily succulents are all the rage right now, so we were able to pull a few from our own plants. 😀
Lastly, this is what the entire table might have looked like. Yes our table is very tiny with all the stuff on there and we the basket with the oranges is GARGANTUAN…but it was just to get an idea. To be honest, we were lazy to drag the heavy 8-foot table out so we ended up using a mahjong table.
As our wedding day approaches…we’ll be sharing more with you soon!
