I thought I would go outside of the norm today and post a little bit of prettiness to go along with all of the tips and education of Stationery Week! Of course it’s perfectly fitting for the aforementioned prettiness to be a Texas wedding, as my husband and I are driving to Texas today! This modern white wedding from Mustard Seed Photography is a gorgeous one, and I know y’all (I HAD to say it, I AM in Texas after all…) are going to love it! The beautiful bride, Jessica, has been kind enough to share some insight into the planning of her wedding, so let’s get started with the pretty!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
I did all the planning and design details. I am an interior designer so this was right up my alley! With a florist background as well, I did all the reception centerpiece arrangements. I did however have a florist make mine and the bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres. I created our save-the-dates, invitations, place cards, menus, table numbers, favors, programs, designed flower girl dresses and baskets, etc!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
For me the most important thing in selecting vendors was their ability to carry out my vision for the wedding. I knew what kind of look and feel I wanted aesthetically. From there it was just looking for a match!
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
My theme for our wedding was Modern Vintage. I was inspired by 1920’s glamour…feathers, pearls, tuxedos. I wanted our wedding to be classic and timeless with a modern edge. For example, my dress had very intricate, old-world layering lace technique but had a modern cut along with my purple heels!
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
My favorite thing about our wedding was getting to the Grove where our reception was and seeing all my design efforts come together! My two good friends from college helped set-up the reception so it was a nice surprise when we arrived.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
My best advice for other brides is to enjoy your fiance before taking the next step! Brides can get so involved in the planning that they forget to reflect on their fiance and what the two of them are about to encounter in marriage.
Aw, I definitely agree with Jessica’s advice- don’t forget about the reason you’re planning a wedding! :)
I love the modern elegance of the white and blush together. What do you all think of the modern style and using all-white? Are any of you having a wedding incorporating either of these elements?
