My partner and I have been dating since November 2007 and got engaged January 2011 before he was to go away for 8 months overseas. It was a big surprise for me even though I knew it was coming. Eight months later he arrived home safely. We made a decision to have our vintage, elegant, garden wedding in Fiji on 17th of July 2012. The closer it gets to the date, the more excited I get and I’d love to share some of the inspiration behind our plans.
Our wedding is a mixture of things. The wedding itself will be in Fiji, but it’s going to be an outdoor garden wedding. The theme is Vintage elegance. The ceremony will happen on the grass with the beach behind us (it will have my love of gardens and Adrian’s love of the water). The reception will be outdoors with lots of floral arrangements, chandeliers, white paper lanterns and fairy lights. Each element of our wedding reflects each aspect of our personalities.
The bridesmaid’s dresses are 3 different colours in 3 different styles. Strapless pale pink, spaghetti strap pale peach and one shoulder pale green. I have chosen roses for the pridal party bouquets, mine being white and the bridesmaids being the same colour as their dresses. The decorations are going to be very floral … lots of flowers and colour … I’m quite excited. And OMG my dress is amazing. A white mermaid strapless gown with lace, beading, silk tulle and organza. Adrian has chosen the colour grey, but will not be wearing a suit. He has chosen just a white shirt, grey vest, grey pants and a white tie. As for his groomsmen, they will be wearing the same but with a slight difference … their ties. There’s will be pale pink, pale peach and pale green, to match the bridesmaid’s dresses. Believe it or not this wedding is quite cheap. Our Budget is no more than $10,000. I’ve been having so much fun planning and I can’t wait for our wedding day.
