DIY I Do–The Theme

SandR Wedding Mood Board

For months I have been going back on forth on ‘themes’ for my wedding. I have been loving the whole vintage/shabby-chic styling that a lot of weddings are sporting at the moment, with the mis-matched floral china, burlap bunting and wild flowers, and I was pretty much set on that for quite some time. But then I came across the knot tying diagram (in the collage above) and knew I had found my theme. How perfect for Robin and I! Not just because the first figure looks like an ‘R’ and an ‘S’ that ‘tie the knot’, but because both of us love water sports and being by the sea. So our nautical theme was born.

Pinterest is a gift and a curse for wedding inspiration. I have spent far too many hours drooling over all the beautiful, gorgeous wedding images over there, and as any of you who follow me you will know, pinning on to a million different wedding boards! It’s great to have so much inspiration all in one place for free. No need to go and buy a stack of expensive wedding magazines (although I may have done a bit of this too!). The curse of course is that it’s almost TOO much inspiration. I have a million and one different ideas of what I would like my wedding to look like and I find myself getting carried away. Luckily Rob is a lot more grounded (as most men are), and has reigned in my fanciful ideas many times already.

So I decided it was time to be decisive and pick specific ideas or photos to base our wedding on and have created a mood-board to show this. It relaxed my mind almost instantly, as well as got me super excited! Gone are all the other images that I loved (OK, they are all still on my other wedding boards) and all I have are the ones that I’m going to use for OUR wedding. This is what it’s going to look like – how exciting!
