I’m really excited to have a display at Indie Wed later this month (January 30th at the Ravenswood Event Center). After some deliberation, I’ve decided to have a few vignettes on my table with different wedding themes. Each vignette will have a bridal bouquet, boutonniere, centerpiece, and placecard holder. Along with these items, I’ll have a mini inspiration board, with the item that inspired the theme, the color palette, and a photo of the bride’s or a bridesmaid’s dress.
For one of the vignettes, I’m borrowing the theme for a wedding I’ll be doing this summer. A creative couple I met with a few months ago brought to their consultation their inspiration piece for their wedding: a sheet of gift wrap with a collage of vintage postcards from Paris.
I immediately fell in love with their vintage French theme, and my mind started putting together soft green hydrangea and beige roses in aqua antique medicine bottles.
Fast forward a bit to the release of the first issue of Eco-Beautiful Weddings, and I fell in love again–with the look on page 76. The dress is soft and romantic, with a light aqua detail. The birdcage veil and necklace give the look a vintage feel. I thought, that would go great with the vintage French theme! So I’m making it happen with the vintage-themed vignette that Pollen will have at Indie Wed.
A few sneak peaks of my vintage themed wedding vignette for Indie Wed…
For the placecard holder, I’m planning on a dual purpose placecard holder/wedding favor: a mini herb pot with the placecard sitting in it. I created a vintage-looking placecard that resembles an admission ticket.
For the two other vignettes, I’m planning on doing a modern theme and a seasonal/rustic theme. I’m still working on these ideas! Stay tuned. In the meantime, get your tickets for Indie Wed!
