VENUE: Villa Del Sol D'oro
THEME AND INSPIRATION
After I was originally inspired by this photo from Vanity Fair on the left, I've been modeling our theme after period piece movies. Most of my ideas are gathered from movies I love like these:
Here's an inspiration board I made incorporating the theme and color palette. It all took months of brainstorming and 2nd guessing but I'm psyched it all seems to be coming together now.
Flower color ideas:
Of course it's just in my personality to want to tweak with it somehow so I decided to change the neckline to more of a scalloped sweetheart like Natalie Portman's dress in this pic. I hired a seamstress at first to perform the surgery and after not being impressed with the work I decided to do it myself. Yes - I am CRAAAZY! I don't even know how to work a sewing machine so I did it by hand. Here's how it came out! =)
I'm a wacko 2 dress-bride

What I really liked about this model’s hair-do is the volume and period piece look that I was wanting to tie in with the old world style.
I came across these photos of Kristen Stewart. Her up-do is so close to capturing my ideal hairstyle. It’s big, voluminous, and a little messy. It’s also classic, modern, and edgy at the same time.
At first I made this for my hair, but now I'm thinking it looks too 1940s/50s
So now I'm thinking about wearing something like this instead. I'm liking the idea of colored flowers and a feather
