You know I love a fun, unusual wedding. I pin a LOT of great ideas for that couple who wants something….a little more unique.
But I feel like I ALWAYS see comments or responses along the lines of, “I could never do that,” or “it’s too far out there for me,” or any variation along those lines. And to that, I always think: is it?
Is it really that far out there? Is there REALLY that big of a difference if a color is blue not white? Can it really have a detrimental effect on your wedding? Or at your next party?
For some, it seems that way. Others, have no second thoughts about it. The debate will go on forever, and there is no wrong or right answer. But with increased socializing and media sharing, I believe it will become more and more socially acceptable to trade in some traditions to see new ideas brought to the wedding world. Or at least I hope so!
This week I’ve challenged myself to come up with something that falls halfway between the traditional white wedding, and the all-out goth wedding. White and gold, with subtle touches of black raven make for a very interesting design. The perfect detail that I think brings it all together is the unusual invitation.
Here’s what I had in mind:
