After getting engaged I suddenly realized that I was completely out of my element. I did not have a clue about how to pull off a budget friendly wedding let alone what the vision of our wedding should look like. I quickly discovered hundreds of amazing wedding blogs (like EAD), photographers, and other online resources all full of amazing wedding details and inspirations.
I must have looked at a million photos, but I finally found the vision for our wedding in a beautiful wedding invitation. I am not sure if it was the bright fuchsia color with the white text, the simplicity of the layout, or the two font types, but this wedding invitation was exactly what we wanted for our wedding… vibrant and simple (yet still classic). We were ready to hit the ground running and create an inspiration board. Since I did not have access to a design program like Photoshop I simply created the inspiration board in PowerPoint. I poured through all of the files I had saved on my computer and finally came up with A “Fruitful” Affair because I found that I was drawn to bright colors like mango, papaya, kiwi, raspberry, and orange.
Now all I had to figure out was how I was going to pull off a Monolo Blahnik wedding on a flip flop budget…it was time to get creative.
