Our invitations are from the Candlelight collection of Carlson Craft. We had them printed with plum ink to match out colors.

We're doing a wine theme that we're infusing throughout the day. We'll be using old wine crates to hold the ceremony programs, as well as to convert into a card box. 

For the ceremony, our church doesn't allow us to throw petals. Instead, 1 of my flower girls and 1 of my ring bears will be holding this sign:

For the reception cards, we are collecting wine corks to use as such

For places throughout the reception, including the bars, reception card table, and entrance table, we'll be using cast iron wine bottle candelabras. Each wine bottle with a candelabra will have this custom label on it.

I wanted my shoes to be my "something blue." I fell in love with the Something Blue shoes by Manolo Blahnik but couldn't justify the $900 price tag. So I went for a cheaper version of the originals by Bella Belle. LOVE THEM!!!

I feel passionate about my BM's choosing their own style of gown. I think it's only fair, as they are paying for it and should at least get to chose a gown that flatters their particular body and has the possibility of being worn again. I'm leaning toward Belsoie's poly-chiffon floor-length dresses in Bordeaux. Belsoie is a great brand, as it is reasonably priced and can accommodate my vision!

To coordinate with the bouquets, my FI will have an eggplant calla boutonniere and the groomsmen will have a cream calla boutoniere

We've already chosen our vases, which are curvy and tall. We're probably going to go with something natural, including curly willow branches, eggplant callas, purple and cafe au lait dahlias, as well as hanging amaryllis. I love the hanging amaryllis in the centerpieces to give a "dripping" effect, similar to how you'd see grapes dripping off of a vine.

For my bouquet, I'd like to have a full bouquet of eggplant calla lilies and black parrot/queen of night tulips. For the bridesmaids, I'd like cream callas and cafe au lait dahlias.
