Our wedding date is May 19th and quickly approaching! We are getting so excited and finalizing all of our decor and details so I thought I'd share what we have planned thus far....
4:00 p.m. - Gazebo ceremony (We booked a violinist) and are going with Chill out Chic decor
5:00 p.m. - Cocktail hour on the Beach Terrace (Last minute location change b/c they overbooked the plaza colonial)
6:00 p.m. - Beach Reception
We have a total of 27 adults and 3 kids coming. Our main color accent is light peach and we are going with a Rustic / Burlap Theme. See pictures attached to get a feel of our upcoming wedding day! We are doing white linens with burlap table runners, and flower centerpieces with Light pinks, light peaches, and off-white flowers including some green leaves and ivy....We also chose brown tiffany chairs. For lighting on the beach we chose a string of Round Chinese lanterns...I think it will be really pretty. We are also getting sparklers for our guests to light once it gets dark. : )
My dress is Roses by Reem Acra Laurel Gown. I found it in Nordstrom and fell in love.... We have hired their DJ but really are bringing cd's with all of our own music prepared....For the rehearsal dinner... I was told by Bianca to wait until 2 weeks before our wedding day to make a reservation at once of the restaurants... i don't know how it will go considering some of the posts I have read. I am hoping we can all sit together but maybe not??
Oh and FYI for the cake topper, I found it on Etsy and they personalize it to the dress you are wearing and flower choices. Its really neat!
Well I hope you like my wedding theme and selections. Any feedback, questions or suggestions are welcome!

I Loooove your dress. The cap sleeves are amazing. It fits your theme and will look great on the beach- so flowy and dreamy. Overbooking did I hear? Ugh that's irritating- same happened to me with our reception location, but I have come to terms with it. I'm glad it doesn't seem to irk you. I love the chill out chic decor, but since we had blue as our colors, we went with the Aqua. I love the rustic feel of many of your elements. Your cake topper is adorable- I got mine on Etsy as well. They have many elements that match the Chill out chic, so go Etsy crazy haha.
