DYI mostly - worked very closely with a former knottie who designed my maps and I loved them so much, I asked her to design the rest. Pocketfolds & matte paper: www.cardsandpockets.com
Envelopes will be Ivory with Gold writing and sealed with a Gold Wax Fleur-de-lis Seal!
A low chignon with volume on top and side-swept bangs is how I would like to style my hair!
Again, to exude my "vintage" style, I have looked to wearing accessories that clearly are ME. Thus, I am not wearing a traditional veil, but a feather, floral hair adornment with a birdcage, vintage-tulle veil to complete the look (I have taken this sample from a local bride here in So Cal - whom I give credit!). Also, I just stumbled across earrings that are the EXACT replicas of the same earrings Jackie Kennedy wore to many presidential events during her time in Camelot - I MUST get those! My shoes are by "Something Bleu" and are properly a peep-toe, slingback style.
Tightly-bound bouquets of fushcia pink blooms (I love the idea of them carrying giant pink dahlias)!
Since I am wearing a vintage-inspired white feather hair adornment, I will have a white bouquet similar to the one posted above but perhaps with some white feathers also adorned in it to mimic my hair piece! My bouquet will definitely include my favorite flowers: Ranuncula, Roses, Gardenias, & Hydragena all in hues of ivory & whites.
Our ceremony will take place in the front of the estate with the porch acting as our "altar". The beautiful urns will contain an arrangement of pink flowers with hanging amaranth while my aisle will be lined with wrought-iron (wrapped in garland vines) with hanging hydrangea pomander balls.
