22 Mar

My fiance David is a musician. While trying to figure out a theme for our wedding I came across an article that referred to a music/musician themed wedding. I remember thinking, “that sounds cool.” I googled and found several images, some decorations for sale, one or two websites, but mostly lots of pics of sheet music inspired “stuff.” I love black & white pics, black & white decorations, etc. Since I’d already changed the color of the bridesmaids dresses from dark purple/lapis to little black dresses (not matchy matchy) I thought “this might be IT.” I did some more looking. I looked on Etsy, I looked on Ebay, I looked on wedding websites, in magazines, etc.

What it all acme down to was this: I found the niche between the two of us, that thing that helped bring us together (friends and music), and am using it as our theme. Our wedding/reception isn’t going to be some formal shindig with a cocktail hour, nor will it be in a church or in a “venue,” we’re having it at my parents home. The wedding will be in their front yard and the reception in the backyard. We’re having barbeque and the fixin’s, beer, lots of family and friends, and some flowers and mason jars with tea light candles in them, and probably a couple of  bottles of Jack (my dad will haven hidden in the “mancave” for himself and a few of his close friends/relatives), and we’re probably going to have a homemade red velvet cake withe wedding topper on it….and as I sit here thinking about everything (like my DIY wedding invitations that I’m working on, or my gunmetal grey dress that I need to have altered to tea length and my silver Cinderella shoes to match, or how I don’t really give a rat’s ass about whether or not everyone we invite shows up so long as the important people do, and most of them are either related to us, in the wedding, or both) I realize this just might be my dream wedding come true.

Would I want to have the fancy church, the cathedral train and veil, the sit down dinner and cocktail hour, the wedding planner, florist, etc…? No, not really. I’m a little stressed out about planning it myself, but at least this way I know it is about US.
