Wednesday, December 30, 2015
I was ready to write a year-in-review for 2015, but then I realized it was Wednesday, and I already had the perfect topic for Wedding Wednesday.
The challenge of planning a wedding when all your friends and family and in-laws, etc. live on opposite sides of the country is definitely communication. I want to include everyone and give them all the little details about the colors and the flowers and the music and the doughnut tower (yep, you read that right – reason #3005 we’re having a brunch wedding); however, it’s hard and I don’t want the wedding to be the only thing we talk about!
Enter the Drake-Reveal wedding mood board. I would have called it a “vision” board, but all of the things I’ve listed are no longer visions, they’re actually happening for real.
I thought to myself, “Hmm – real bloggers make these cool collages all the time. There must be a super simple way to take a bunch of my Pinterest pins and Etsy purchases and put them into a trendy collage.” Well – if there is an easy way, someone please clue me in. It was so time consuming. But, ultimately I think completely worthwhile. First, it’s a really succinct way to present a lot of info about the wedding at once. Second, it makes people feel like they’re more ‘in-the-know’ about some of our wedding choices. Third, it’s a quick way to give in-laws an idea about what to wear without typing endlessly about the bridesmaids’ and MOB’s dresses.
And, behold – the Drake-Reveal Wedding Mood Board.
