It's All in The Details

I'm pretty sure I went through every wedding on Snippet & Ink today (where I found all of these images).  I've been trying to hone down on the details.  I think the best option is keeping the decor as clean/ rustic as possible and only incorporating a few boho chic aspects. Anyway, here are some inspiring tidbits I found today:

Kraft envelope with white ink. 

Feather detail with twine. 

Blue suits, not sure if they're midnight blue or slate, but I like them. 

Feather headband. Understated way to bring in the boho theme.

Beaucoup de Bouquets

I need to hit the nail on the head for what I want as far as details in the wedding. I'm not completely positive about the decor or even the colors... but I think I've gotten pretty close to what I want when it comes to bouquets. My favorites are the ones with blush colored flowers and brown accents like feathers. I want them to be colorful without being too flashy.

Now on the search for more boho-rustic bouquets....

Boho. Rustic. Vintage.

Yes. That's three different styles, and yes that's exactly what I want.

A perfect mixture of rustic vintage with a bohemian twist. I was having a hard time explaining exactly what I wanted it to look like. I told Kevin that I wanted the wedding to look like it went with the things we like and the music that we listen to. He told me he got it. That I wanted the wedding to be like a song.

Knows me better than I know myself. I'm a lucky girl.

Now, for some boho, rustic, vintage inspiration...

Wedding Must Haves

Okay, so I guess you can't have everything you want. This is more of a wedding "love to have" list than a "must have" list...

1. Farm Tables: I love the idea of all of our close friends and family sharing a few long table instead of multiple small tables. It's like a huge family dinner. Love that.

2. String Lights: I've always felt like dancing under the stars and under string lights was for your first dance or reception was so romantic.

3. Our Music: I'm big on forcing friends and family to listen to what I call "Erica music." It's rarely top 20 and people usually try to stop me... but finally I get to share my favorite songs and bands with everyone I love against their will! (I'm totally kidding... sort of). And since Kevin and I both love to sit for hours finding new songs to listen to and new bands to love, I think it is our duty to not only have our DJ/ Musicians play our music but also give it to our friends and family as well. What a great idea for wedding favors! And the DIY aspect makes it that much more special.

4. DIY Touches: There seems to be a rise in DIY-brides lately... or maybe it's just pinterest making it look like everyone who gets married is a part time crafting genius. Either way, I think that creating things yourself for your wedding day is a great way to make the wedding feel more "you" while cutting cost on having someone else do it.
