anyways...i've been thinking of our wedding...which was pretty...way back then...in the 90's...sheesh...

maybe just maybe he would go for doing the whole renewing vows kind of thing this year...

i don't think i could pull off the pearls but i'm sure i could find some vintage style necklace to top off that ruffled dress...

i know....it is so out of my range of colors...but for one day...

i better see if the husband will agree....

husband...

darling...

sweetie...

*chirp* *chirp* *chirp*

I would completely love to do my wedding over. I wouldn't change anything about the man I married, but I'm loving all the sweet, casual, beautiful wedding ideas I see around now and those kinds of wedding definitely fit me better than the one I had (which was totally formal and traditional).

How sweet! I have definitely noticed a trend in weddings toward a more "farmhouse/prairie style" -- much more laid back and casual -- many outdoors in a large barn. I love seeing this!

Although, there are still the over-the-top gazillion-dollar weddings out there, but like you, I'd love a do-over ---- this time reflecting the real "me" vs. the shy whatever-you-think-we-should-have girl I was back at 19. :)

I think my wedding was more a reflection of my mother in law than me -- but she was great, so that's cool ;)

Good luck getting your cowboy to agree to a vow renewal in a strawberry theme! Fun!

Beautiful inspiration! I would like to renew our wedding/vows too - more like a casual prairie picnic with close friends and family. Hope your husband goes for it - because we would all love to see the pictures!

Seeing these pictures remind me of your strawberry short cake doll when we were little. You had everything strawberry shortcake, I think you even had a birthday party with everything strawberry. Things do come back in style. Love you!

Love the strawberries in the little paper sacks...and the coke bottles....how cute is that for a wedding reception..especially a summer wedding! Oh, and I STILL have my strawberry shortcake doll from when I was a kid...you squeeze her belly and she blows strawberry scented kisses! : )

Yeah with one sister getting married last Sept. and Candis' in May I've been finding myself trying to live vicariously through them...Candis has been a little easier to convince of my ideas, Lori not so much;)

How different and how pretty those pictures were. My wedding was black and white and my bridesmaids wore black and white polka dots dresses. I am not a pastel kind of girl. The polka dots were a little different for 20 years ago. I loved them. A do over with my same main squeeze would be fun.

Martha said...

I love your inspiration photos...I would only do it over again if we could renew our vows on the 13th {we were married on the 13th...our fav number too} and on a beach...oh how I love those strawberries in those blue strainers!!! Of course to the same guy too:)

Pretty pretty wedding!

I'm mourning the fact that I didn't buy those clock faces a couple of days ago. Sigh. What was I thinking? You snooze, you lose. right?

If you get anymore, let me know please. I've been wanting some for ages.

I'm also beginning to wonder if the winner of the giveaway is out of town or something...she had like 3 entries, so I know she wants them. I'll email her again today, and if she hasn't responded by the end of the weekend, I'll pick another winner.

Oh, and I'm serious about the clock faces. ;-)

xoxo
