I met the love of my life, Morgan on Match.com back in 2008. Ten years later, we tied the knot! We knew that we wanted to get married at our home in West Boylston, MA.
Since we are an older couple, we wanted something intimate and relaxed; A Sunday Brunch Garden-Style Wedding. We invited 57 guests and didn’t have any wedding party.
Funny how the very first thing I bought was my dress! A Ralph Lauren dressy-casual ball gown at Macy’s. The lovely floral pattern on my dress was my inspiration piece for the whole theme of my wedding. I am in love with blue and white toile and delft blue. Nautical/Preppy/Martha Stewart meets Style Me Pretty. Relaxed Elegance.
Our wedding took place on Memorial Day weekend-sunny, warm and beautiful, right?! Well…it was 52 degrees, rainy and windy-Gee Wilkins! Everything was held underneath a Sailcloth Tent and our guests were freezing! What can one do? Lend out jackets, sweaters and umbrellas. All in all, it was a wonderful celebration.
I learned such an important lesson that I have been telling my Brides for years: please don’t take on too many DIY projects!! You will burn the candle at both ends! Try to keep things simple and designate duties-yes-ask politely and you shall receive.
Also, I would strongly recommend having your Groom purchase their own suit that can be worn indefinitely for special occasions-worth every penny!
Have a look and I will tell you more about the vendors that I chose:
