March to a different drummer


Those who know me know that I tend do things just a bit off or different then everyone else.  

My wedding will be no exception. 

At least it is my goal to make it as unique as I can on a small budget.  The colors in the room above would be fun.

Anyone have any different, unique or creative ideas?  please send them all my way- I would love you forever!

You (the bride) would say, oh, those are my blogging buddies, a colorful bunch!!
I love white or cream with color. You cannot go wrong.
White with Orange
Cream with Blue
White with Red
Cream with Pink
White with Black
Cream with Navy (that was mine)
White with aqua

LOVE it! i can picture it now. go for it and of course it will be FUN!!!

We did ours for about $6000, so it's definitely possible. People still tell us how fun it was, so I'm guessing it really was or they wouldn't keep the charade up this long. :-)

It's amazing how much you can save if you are willing to do some things yourself, which I am sure you will be. A little creativity (and a lot of Craigslist and eBay) go a long way!! We even got our napkins imprinted from eBay. I refused to spend a lot on something people would wipe their mouths on and then throw away.

You're a pro at thinking outside the box, so your wedding is going to rock! And I'm a major wedding nerd, so if you want more specifics on what we did, just holler!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

Can I please have this child. What a cutie pie. The room is cute too. LEB wedding! Are you ever going to reveal the BF's name? Or yours? What do we call him now? Fiance is too long.

That entire room screams fun! I don't know if this is "fun" to you, but I used vintage postcards as seating cards for our reception. You can see them here:

Love Stephanie's comment. Ummm these colors are so bright and fun. Your wedding is going to be INSANE...I just know it.

Sanity Fair said...

Heart those chairs with the raspberry stripes! That would be a great wedding color... :)

We planned our wedding in under 5 weeks and I custom designed my own wedding dress which was finished the day of the wedding. I used acid green silk that I had once used for a client's drapery for my dress. I look awful in white. The picture of me on my website will show you what the results were! More pics can be found on my facebook page too Linds.

I'm suprised your not using a peacock inspired color scheme! Have you seen it? So so pretty!

Congrats girl!

The Zhush said...

Those colors would be so fun AND so happy! What is your wedding day after all, if not a fun and happy reflection of the two of you?!

Rikke said...

Great coloring, for photos and on a number of skin tones. I love when I see people using the Martha Stewart-inspired tissue paper pom-poms. So inexpensive, but done in a variety of colors and hung at different heights they look amazing!

I can't wait to see how everything progresses :) Congrats!

ashlina said...

happy weekend hunny.

shoestringliving said...

Those colors would be amazing.

Kristin said...

I think those colors would make a gorgeous wedding!

shari @ little blue deer said...

LOVE red, pink, orange and yellow together! So springy, so festive! Great color inspiration, thanks so much!

Devon said...

I agree with Sabbe--we need to name your fiance. Something Mr. Bigg'ish.

Have you found the Soiree by Tara Guerard website yet? Unreal.

Laura@JourneyChic said...

Those are great summer colors!

I went to a wedding with different shaped tables - half were square, half were round, and it had a very cool effect.

We used a London taxi to take the two of us to the reception instead of a limo (there was a limo for the wedding party). Everyone was so surprised by it! There are loads of creative things you can do with flowers, too. On the cocktail tables I floated orchids in martini glasses, and instead of one centerpiece had three small ones in different shape and height vases.

ahhh I would love this room in my house!
:D fantastic color.

Southern Aspirations said...

ooh- I'm with L. Throw a peacock color into that mix and it will be perfect.

I'll email you my wedding planning sites (before I knew about blogging!!) in case they are helpful!
