I’ve had weddings on the brain lately. ‘Tis the season for weddings, I suppose, although I’ve not had any to go to this spring. Between designing invitations for a couple of friends with weddings this fall to seeing a bunch of wedding stuff on Pinterest to reading about weddings in blog land (Erika’s wedding 8 years ago was amazing), I’ve been thinking of all the things about our wedding I would have done differently (except for choice of groom, of course). And while the day was special and served it’s purpose by making me Mrs. Browning, I would definitely change most of the major things (location, photographer, DJ) if I had it to do all over again.
So here’s how things went down 5 1/2 years ago (Reminder – I was not even remotely pleased with my photographers [if you can believe it, there were 3 of them]. I could have done a better job with my point and click…):
I didn’t really care what the cake looked like, but I knew I wanted a fountain (that I remembered LOVING at weddings I went to as a little girl) and a bride and groom on top. I found a Hello Kitty cake topper that I really wanted, but Chris Browning put his foot down. Firmly. But I ended up loving the one I found because it was fiber optic and changed colors and felt a little bit disco.
And here is what my wedding would look like if I got married tomorrow, if money were no option:
This was a wedding concept photo shoot by Andrea Hubbell (found via Prairie Mod). The only thing I’d change is the bride’s bouquet, and that’s only because I found the one below on Pinterest that is very similar but better.
I think I did okay with the resources I had at the time, but it’s hard to look back sometimes and not wince. Does anyone else wish they could have a do-over?
