Woah! So since my last post about never having been to a wedding, one of my closest friends Lauren got engaged to her long time boyfriend Andre!
The whole wedding party hasn't been decided yet but she asked me yesterday to be one of her bridesmaids and as if I'd turn that down! I'm so happy for them and so excited to be a part of the event but secretly I think I might be most excited to help PLAN the event... Being the internet junkie I am as soon as I heard the news I started scouring the internet for wedding inspiration and I think I've probably overwhelmed Lauren with the amount of cool wedding stuff I found. It's pretty funny considering I've still never been to one of these things but maybe it's a good tactic to be able to think outside of the box? Let's pretend it is... Anyways Lauren knows she wants to have it outside in the fall and is definitely not the typical 'bride'. She's been tossing around the idea of the bridesmaid dresses being rockabilly/retro inspired which I think is a very cool idea and so suited to her :)
We're in art school together so it's kind of a given that a lot of the decor will be DIY with help from friends. With that in mind, here's some of the inspiration I gathered...
couch + setting of choice
Umbrella/light installation + tvs showing photos of the couple
paper streamers and twinkle lights
Andre and Lauren plan on making different origami animals for each table at the wedding
This is a list of the sites I gathered...
Any suggestions on other places to look?
And congrats again to my friends - life is good!
