Definitely do what makes you happiest! I think simple is timeless, and the setting is honestly so beautiful that it doesn't need much.  I'm going for lighting and some pops of colour, but I don't want to go overboard or it can come off as tacky. I've been googling as many pics as I can to get ideas!

Thanks ladies! I worry, my biggest thing is I compare myself to some of the planning threads on here and I feel like I am not doing enough or going over the top on some things. However, I remind myself that everyone is different and value different things.. Just hard sometimes. Ughhhh...

yeah - do NOT use Pinterest or the wedding blogs to set any sort of standard. or ANY other wedding. While they are gorgeous, I also think they are unrealistic for many, many brides. (and many of the blogs are styled photoshoots - not real events!). use them for what they are - inspiration.

 

do what makes you happy, and what fits for your style (and that other thing - BUDGET).

 

trust me - the guests won't remember a $300 centerpiece vs. a $50 one. they won't remember the elaborate decorations or lack of. what they'll remember is how much love they witness, and how much fun they have at your wedding.

you can totally look at my pinterest boards and see where I got the inspiration for every bit of my wedding!!! It's fantastic for ideas & inspiration.

 

What I was trying to say is that Pinterest is NOT good if it's used to build an expectation or set a standard of "what a wedding has to be" or "if my wedding isn't like this one, it's a failure."

Due to the setting of a dw, your wedding will not be plain at all. It will turn out beautiful.

@1BeachBride is right - it will be beautiful just because of the setting!

A lot of people don't do a whole lot extra. It's less to pack and take with you.

I'm wanting simple, not a bunch of stuff to bring. Trying to determine exactly what I should focus on can be stressful. I've come to the conclusion that everything will fall into place.
