Wedding Inspiration

I know I am leaving you all hanging, having to wait until next Wednesday to hear more about my sweet proposal, but trust me when I say that it will be so worth it! If you aren't sure what I'm talking about, go read this post were I go into great detail on everything that went on leading up to Will getting down on his knee this past Saturday!

One thing is for sure, and that's that zero time has been wasted and wedding planning is now in full force. We have already created a budget, picked out our wedding colors (gold and mint), figured out our wedding party, settled on a date (06/13/15) and selected our photographer (Nancy Ray Photography), videographer (Good Earth Films) a band (The Troopers) along with a number of other really exciting things. Quick side note: I know I've only been officially engaged since last Saturday but Will and I have been planning for our future wedding day for months now! The reason why is something I will be sharing in the third and final post on our proposal two weeks from now. And NO I am NOT pregnant, but it's equally exciting in my opinion and is something I want to share after the spotlight has veered away from the proposal just a little bit.

But back to wedding inspiration...I have so many ideas and Pinterest has been both my best friend and my worst enemy in terms of taking up half my time and attention. But who wouldn't be swooning when they come across images like the ones below?
Y'all, I'm really looking forward to capturing our vision of a rustic/whimsical/vintage wedding and meeting with vendors and brainstorming with Will, our family and friends! Luckily our venue (The Cotton Room in Durham) has lot's of charm and character and will be the perfect place to help with my wedding day vision! What do you think?
If you want to see all the ideas I have so far for my wedding day, go check out my One Fine Day Pinterest board here and my Blooms board here. If you have any ideas that go along with the theme I have in mind, please share them with me! And again, be sure to come back next Wednesday for more wedding related talk ;-)

  5. Wow! I cannot believe you have so much planned already, but seeing that you were reading Southern Wedding magazines when I met you- it all makes sense :) hehe, anyway- wanted to point out that the first bridesmaids dress you posted is the one we used for our wedding (except in pink :) ) they fit everyone so perfectly, no matter what size. I would totally recommend it!

  6. Pinterest is definitely me best friend and worst enemy! I think I spend 75% of my free time scrolling Pinterest and I don't even have a wedding to plan... But I am so excited for you and I know you will successfully put together you and Will's dream wedding! Congratulations, Melissa! :)

    xoxo, Shae

  7. Ah! Can't wait to hear the rest of the proposal story! But I might be more excited about your vision because it's VERY similar to mine! My girls are wearing mint dresses and gold is a major accent color throughout the day! Cannot wait to see how you pull yours together! Congrats!

  17. Love, love, love your wedding colors!! Our nursery colors (if its a girl) are turquoise and gold. We got married in 5 days after getting engaged, so there was lots of rumors of a shotgun wedding. Nope, all thanks to the military! Baby is coming over 4 years after we got married! ;)

    Cannot wait to see more of your wedding planning!! Ya'lls venue seems perfect.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
