    Such a crazy coincidence, honestly Smiley tongue

    And combined, we have a total of 14 people in our bridal party lol I have 6 bridesmaids, 2 of which are co-maid of honours, and my fiance has 6 groomsmen, 2 of which are co-best men. It actually worked out perfectly for us because I wasn't able to choose between my two best friends for maid of honour and he couldn't choose between his two best friends for best man so we decided to go with 2 of each Smiley smile

    Haha, you’re so right! I have a party of 4, how about you?
    I’m so glad we did too because we had no attachment to it so I’m so glad you guys with are able to marry there because it truly is beautiful. Oh my goodness, that’s so funny, that was our original date too! Girl, great minds think alike lol

    Bridesmaids are supposed to be patient with us busy brides, it's what they're hired for Smiley winking how many do you have in the bridal party?! I absolutely ADORE the darker colours for the fall and I love that you're open to incorporating lighter hues too like the silver and blush, very, very complimentary! Yeah, the picture frame thing was a dream and made my pinterest board in various ways, but I think I'm going to stick with the small pumpkins for that fall flare Smiley smile And what a coincidence on the venue! It's actually a place my fiance used to visit a lot as a child so it's quite sentimental to him. I absolutely mean nothing by this but I'm happy you went with the venue you chose Smiley tongue My fiance and I originally wanted the 15th of October but were second up to another couple who wanted that date so I'm happy I didn't have to go through that again lol. We're going to do the ceremony that's in front of that white Manor, so the garden one! We were shown the indoor space if things don't pan out due to weather and it's also very nice. And yes, magical is definitely the way to describe it - it's perfect for us

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your ideas of the milk cans for vases and the small pumpkins for numbers! so cute! I am going from burgundy, navy and gold to navy, blush and silver - I swear I am the most indecisive bride, my girls die at me because every other message is guys okay what if I change this to this hahaha, bless their hearts for being so good and knowing me as a person ahaha

    I found this really cute thing on pintrest where they took old picture frames, painted them to look worn and then removed the backing and wrote in what I am assuming is paint markers all the table numbers and people sitting at the tables and I am kinda in love with the idea but it's finding the right type of frame, much like you, without going over budget lol.

    LOVE the venue you are using BTW, they were our second runner up. Are you doing the garden or waterfront ceremony? regardless, it will be gorgeous! that whole space is magical!

    Oh sweets, you and I have to chit chat!

    Pinterest gives great inspiration, don't get me wrong, I've been using it too but I do see how it can be a curse with so many different ideas it's hard to actually execute them Smiley tongue I wanted to have old vintage milk cans as my "vases" for my center pieces but when I ordered some on Amazon, I kid you not, they were the size of shot glasses... Long story short, I'm still keeping that same idea, just looking elsewhere for some. I also wanted to use mix and match vintage picture frames for my table numbers but I'm having the hardest time finding some without going overboard on my budget so I've (with the help of Pinterest) found and idea where I'm going to use small pumpkins and paint numbers on them instead!

    What sort of colour scheme are you looking at now?

    Hey Brooke! Smiley smile

    girllllll, I wish I could tell you - I recently decided to change my colours so I am starting from scratch with centerpiece ideas and with decorations lol.

    I did see this one really cute burlap and lace utensil holder that I am going to make but that is all I have so far - pinterest has been both a blessing and a curse for me haha.

    Do you have any ideas yet?

    Hi Chantel!!!

    Blankets are a great idea!! I'm considering doing something like that myself as I am also planning on an outdoor ceremony, weather permitting of course! If not, our ceremony will be held inside Smiley smile What are some ways you're incorporating the fall season into your decor, if you decide to do so? I'm looking for some inspiration as my summer wedding plan transitioned into a fall wedding so I'm having to change course here a little Smiley tongue

    Helllllo,

    we have the same date - yay! Smiley laugh we are having an outdoor ceremony due to our guest list being smaller we are going to get some blankets that guests can use if they get chilly. Are you doing anything outdoors? Smiley smile

    Hi Joey!

    I'm very happy with our plans so far! We've finally booked the venue which solidified our date and we've just been doing small things here and there, bouncing some ideas off of each other for what we both want on our special day Smiley smile

    As far as customization goes right now, we've come up with a few ideas, two of which being one or two signature drinks that are named after things that make us a couple (we thought about naming one of the them after the hiking trail we got engaged on) and the other idea having the Office theme song being our exit song after the ceremony. There are small things too with our decor that touch on our style as a couple but also bring some individuality to the table. We're having lots of fun planning it together and that's what's important to us right now Smiley smile

    How about you?! I'd love to hear some of your ideas too!

    Welcome to Weddingwire, Brooke. What are some of your ideas for your wedding? Are you looking to have things outdoors or indoors? October can be on the chillier side.

    Are you sticking with a rustic autumn vibe or will you be going against the grain and trying something different?
