Wedding Wednesday- How Much is Too Much?

 This morning I saw the picture of this amazing table on Style Me Pretty, which I am kind of obsessed with. Sadly, I think this is one of those things that would make Nick's brain explode, so I have to simmer down about it. We have reached this point in the wedding planning where it is less about dreaming and more execution, but I am still always thinking of little details we could add to make things a little bit quirkier.

Now I love love weddings like these, which have a ton of color and detail and ideas (though of course these people probably had designers working for them, so  they of course all work together), but the Boy's concern is that you throw enough stuff in the pot and things look like a circus or a child's birthday party. I get that.

You wouldn't have to change too much here for it to be totally believable as an upscale like Beverly Hill's style kid's party. And, it has to be said that now that there are so many good ideas out there, any bride would be crazy to use them all. Some things should probably be understated so that other things can stand out. It is all a play in dynamics, and I am just not sure how you find that. Plus, if you do too much DIY cutesiness, I imagine it comes off as weirdly self-aggrandizing or something.

This one is kind of cool, because it works with quirky detail without banging you over the head with it.

Here is another one where they played with the chairs to make it really fun. So, I feel like this will be a constant battle, and I will just have to hope that the boy vetoes the correct number of my ideas. We made a big "to-do" list for January, so maybe once I start crafting, it will scare me out of all the projects I am plotting. I'm excited about a lot of my ideas anyway, because I have never seen them anywhere, and they come from something more true to us than what you would find on a blog. Those are the details I want to stick with, rather than just loading up on cutesy stuff to be cutesy.
