I'm kind of torn since I want a garden/outside wedding but my fiance is much more modern and I'm having trouble seeing a way to do both

You could have it indoors but have your centerpieces resemble tiny gardens on each table!  The possibilities are ENDLESS!

Welcome!! :D I LOVE outdoor weddings, too! IF you have a museum in your area that has a partial outdoor area, you could always use that!

Welcome! Glad you found us! You can start anywhere you want, but you'll first want to set your budget and decide if you are paying for it yourselves or if family will be helping. That's a good way to help figure out the venues you should look at and such , to make sure you aren't wasting time on places/items out of limits. Congratulations on your engagement and happy planning! We are here to help :)

Nice to meet you Jessy,


My 20 year Vow Renewal wedding is next month.


There are so many great ideas on the net and on here.


While budget is a key factor you should look into DIY for inspiration. Even if you have the money to purchase everything you can still get ideas on colors, decorations and themes.


My sister is paying to have her wedding look DiY. I offered to help, but she really wants the professional artists touch. My stuff is "normal crafty" to her.


You can look at what we have all been doing by surfing our bios. Don;t forget pinterest. That site is a bride's dream for inspiration of all sorts plus you can safe it in your own little folders and make notes to yourself on the comments so you won't forget!


Congrats and happy planning.

Welcome to PW!  It sounds like you've already started at the right spot--you have a picture.  You can certainly have an outdoor wedding with modern touches; it all depends on where you're going to have it.  Look at some of the Bios of the Week and some of the Real Weddings for inspiration and figure out what you like.  The step right after that is budget--what will it be, and then comes the fun and challenging part:  getting the wedding you want in your price range.  Trust me, it can be done!

Welcome to project wedding, Jessy. Congratulations on your engagement and picking the wedding date out! That is the first step! -- You should start out next by making a budget on how much you want to spend and then picking out a theme, venues, getting loads of inspiration pictures, get wedding books, make DIY list/or just a wedding list of things to buy/get, and things you need to book. Good luck, lets us know if you need help with anything else!
