So, this past week, I've begun to have somewhat of a freak out moment.
My wedding is in May....but nearly ALL my wedding decorations would be perfect for a winter wedding...not a spring wedding. Even the ideas that I continually must block from my head seem to give the impression of icicles and snowflakes rather than sunshine and flowers.
Let me be the first to admit...besides summer, Spring is my least favorite season. I normally prefer a mildly warm day with a nippy breeze and leaves falling everywhere to a typical Spring day.
But, circumstances choose wedding dates, not preferences. Well, I guess I could have waited, but that's not going to happen...so Spring it is.
Just to demonstrate, here is our wedding in my mind: brown and white everywhere.

So what do you do when you need to be creating decorations for that special day...but you're stuck in Fall and Winter mode? To get the point across, I literally have made NO decorations that are not some form of brown or white. Isn't Spring supposed to be kind of cheery? I guess you have the wrong girl.
Well, in some attempts to reconcile my drab personality and make it a bit more colorful (my favorite color is brown, y'all), I've created a Pinterest board dedicated to Spring to help get into the Springy mood.
Since Pinterest is the origin of many wedding dreams, I'm going to assume it can also help me remember the things I actually do enjoy about Spring...like Indian Paintbrushes, other flowers, and thunderstorms. I wish thunderstorms were an acceptable wish for your wedding day...but for purely logistical reasons, let's pray it doesn't rain that day.
I found a few things that I'd originally forgotten that are sort of springy cheery, such as turtles, ladybugs, baby birds teapots, strawberries and rainy day drives.
Maybe I can incorporate some of these ideas into the rest of my decorations to turn things from winter-brown to neutral with some cheery colors.
Until next time,
