Because I know we all dream about it. Some of us already have it all planned out from the dress to the flowers and cake. I didn’t want to feel left behind, so here is my take on it. Because secretly I always had my planned too…
I was really used to being in weddings growing up. My grandmother used to make tailor wedding dresses. I remember tulle and all kinds of lace fabrics laying around the house. All of those excited bride would be so nervous, when they first tried on what it was going to be their dress for the special day. This would happened every week if not many times a week. I was always playing around and trying to learn some sewing skill from my Mami (thats how I call her.) I don’t quite remember how it all started but I end up being the flower girl, or the girl who hold the rings, or something that they would made up. But I was actually booked in advance for several weeks. Thinking about it now, it sounds kind of crazy but I did enjoyed doing that. For me all it meant was a new dress, which my grandma would make for me according to the bride’s dress. Even though I was part of a different wedding every week, seen strangers tightening their knot didn’t made me fantasize about my own wedding. It all changed in my aunts wedding, I was very little, I was probably 5 year old or something like that. Her wedding was a beach wedding, but not those on the sand, it was rather of a hotel venue by the the beach, you could see the sea but you wouldn’t get your feet on the sand or anything like that. I can’t quite explain what was that captivated me so much but there is something about that day that was perfect; the weather, the venue or just how happy they looked. Well all is left to say is that from that moment I told to my little self “I want a wedding just like this”
With the help of Lover.ly a wedding platform where planing your wedding is made easier. They asked me to check their website, and once I did all I talked for a week straight was about my imaginary wedding.
Let’s start from the venue since is the one thing I have really clear, and I mean REALLY clear. I don’t mean to sound like a bradzilla, but hey, this is going to be my day so I expect at least the venue to be like I always envisioned in my mind. Ok, first Its going to be a beach wedding, I think thats pretty clear by now, but not any kind of beach wedding. I want to go the same direction my aunt went for hers. I want a venue that the sea is right there, but that the guests don’t get to go in the sand. I guess what I mean is that the outside is more of a grass with a lot of trees (or better palm trees) but not sand. The venue needs to be facing the sea, or at least the dining area, so that the guestes can enjoy the waves against the shore as they enjoy their meal. So this mean that the walls are all made of glass, there shouldn’t be any barrier blocking the view. I want this to be as breath taken as possible. Now that I’m talking about the venue and the dining area I should stop and think about the menu, but the truth is that I have no Idea. I’m a fish person so I think I would like to incorporate some of that in the final menu but is quite early to decide on that!
Now is time to talk about my decoration. I mean flowers, center pieces, invitation and all of that. I don’t have it all figure it out, but I know the style that I want. I guess I should start by saying that I love a clean but chic vibe. I think for me that would mean a lot of blacks and whites with a pop of color. My favorite color is orange, so I think I would go for a peach accent or something in that family. I can imagine a lot of soft peach peonies like these ones Here throughout the room. Oh and by the way, lots, lots, of flowers everywhere. I think I would also love to add some crystal here and there just for a refection of the light in all of those unexpected places, just to make the night a lot more romantic then what already is.
Now lets talk about the personal things, and by this I’m talking dresses, cakes, accessories and so on. I’ve never had a picture in my mind of the perfect dress, but I think after trying hundreds of dress, I would end up with something looking somewhat like this one Here. I love how elegant is on top and how playful it becomes on the bottom. I think it reflects me perfectly. The cake I see really with a minimalism eye, like this one Here. I love how the flower are actually they main focus of this cake, just beautiful. Now is time to talk about the shoes, to tell you the truth I always wanted my dress to cover my shoes, but I think these one Here, this would be more of the choose I would take. The only thing left now are the bridesmaids dresses, I really like this one Here in particular but I’m sure I would let them choose something that goes with my dress but that they also feel beautiful in them.
I want to hug you, and just jump with you if you made it this long. I know this is a lot of wedding rumbling for a fashion and beauty blog, but lets faces who doesn’t dream about this day? I do, and so here is my quick take on it. It would be fun to go back to this once I’m planning my real wedding, and see if I end up chaining anything or if my taste completely changes from here to that day. If you know, or if you have a vague idea on how is your dream wedding, lets talk about it in the comments section. Is it going to be a beach wedding, or more of a country side vibe? Do you want lots of flower, or flower aren’t really your thing? Just share it down below it would mean the world to me to chat with you. Thank you again for your time until them kisses.
