Wedding Wishes

Like most girls, ever since I was young, I have dreamed about my wedding day. Of course I have everything all planned out and so many ideas, now all I need is to be about 7 years older and find a fiance! I really want a navy blue and white wedding with subtle touches of gold. I also want to have a June or July wedding, when all of the flowers and trees are in bloom and the sun is shining! The "theme" is nautical, but I don't want to dwell on really having a theme. I just want subtle nautical touches here and there. The only issue with the nautical theme is that at times it can come off too casual. I hope in the next 7 years, I can form my taste into elegance with a twist of nautical, because I often times feel like my ideas are far too casual for a wedding. Here are some ideas I've that I have! (all pictures have been found through google image search)I love love love the drama that this dress creates. It's elegant and princess like, but not in a tacky way.I am in LOVE with Portia DeRossi's wedding gown. I don't love the tu-tu like bottom, but the top is just so elegant; I love the open back.
I love the thin band on this ring.So pretty!
I am not big on flowers; I don't get too excited when I'm given flowers. Luckily most people know that about me, so I don't get flowers too often; although it is always the thought that counts. So for my wedding, I've dreamed of flowers in all whites. Mostly hydrangeas, but I think peonies are nice too. I want the centerpieces to be understated, with a large navy grosgrain ribbon tied in a bow around the vase. The centerpiece above is something I wouldn't mind too. It's pretty but it doesn't overwhelm the table.
I love this simple bouquet with the navy and white grosgrain. Instead of the starfish, I would put a gold pin with my monogram cut out.
I love Chiavari chairs. These will be perfect for the reception.

What was your favorite part of your wedding? Or what are your wedding dreams? Have a fabulous day!

Hire a fabulous band. Guests pay a lot to go to weddings, so make sure you provide the best entertainment! We splurged on our band and it was worth every penny! A year later, guests still tell us how much fun our wedding was.

Wow, I could've written this post myself- I love those colors and rings...and dresses...and flowers, lol! I feel like the ideas I want for my wedding seem a bit too casual as well, but I want my wedding to be just navy and ivory, with an antique-southernish-garden theme (if that makes any sense, lol), with old blue mason jars hanging from tree branches with ivory candles in them, everything very simple. My friends and I recently decided that I will have a Kentucky Derby themed bachelorette party, lol, and I'm not even engaged yet. All my friends/ family are married, so it's like everyone is waiting on me and my boyfriend, haha, ugh, pressure!

You will have SO MUCH FUN planning your wedding! After dreaming about the day for as long as I can remember, it has been a dream making those ideas a reality. (I think I will still look at wedding pictures long after my wedding day has come and gone.)

i love your ideas, but once you're finally in the "planning" process you might be surprised -- you may change your mind about many things!! Planning a wedding is SUPER fun, but there is SO much to think of -- I love your plan! :)

We did navy and pink as our color scheme and got married in a coastal town that means the world to both of us. The main "theme" was seersucker (if you can consider that a theme), but we used our new monogram a lot as well. I loved everything about it. If you're still thinking navy in 7 years, let me know and I'll share our pics with you :)
