So i've been thinking about things to post on here...
I've covered my dream dress, talked about veils, mentioned all the crafty things we concoct... but i've officially run out of things to say o.O So you know what? i'm going to start doing inspiration boards every week. (or two weeks... or month. we'll see how long my memory span is... and see how long i can keep it up.) First off, i'm posting one for my own wedding. (I've tried to reference as many things as i can, however if i've missed giving the correct links to the appropriate photos, please leave me a message so i can give them the credit that is sorely due. <3)
Since we have decided that our wedding will be as close to Halloween as humanly possible (while still allowing our flowergirl and my bridesmaids to go trick or treating XD) i've managed to toss together a few basic inspro boards. Enjoy!
First off, Food porn!

(chocolate skulls/cakepops/caramel apple) (Little Shop of Horrors Salad)(Ghost Brownies/Caramel apples/truffles/Pumpkin Goodie Bags)(eye jello shots / Caramel Corn Jello Shots)(Candy Corn Cookies)(Caramel Apples/Chocolate animals)(Black Lace Cake*)(Orange Chocolate Cake)
* = this is the SITE i got it from... but if you know the original creator, it would be awesome if you could give me a link to their origional picture...
I have to admit... now that i cite all the websites, i realize i'm REALLY into Caramel Apples... but that just leads to the fact that i want a Caramel Apple Bar/Smores Bar (if we can find a place that will allow us a bonfire..) for the dessert area! It'll be awesome... there will be Apples (red and green of course) pre-skewered, and then a big warm pot of Caramel and/or Chocolate, and then have a way to drizzle chocolate/Caramel over them, and have little bowls of crushed peanuts, cashews (oooh fancy... lmao), Oreos, Reeses Pieces, as well as various others -- but those are the main. It will be awesome. Also, as for the cakes at the bottom... i LOVE the simple wavy orange icing on the one in the middle... the chocolate shavings on top are just so sweet and simple... nothing too fancy :-) i love it. But at the same time, If we go for a "screw the fancy schmancy icing tricks" and do fondant and piping, i'd so totally do the black lace on white fondant! it's stunning!
SECOND -- the wearables!
(click [Here] for bigger)
(Feather-rose bouquet)(Dream Dress)(Circlet)(Dragonfly Pendant)(Rose Choker/Skeleton Choker)(Spider Bouquet)(Stockings)(Ruby Slippers)(Crystal Spider Brooch)
Once again, you get to see the shoes i'm DYING to own... this time accompanied by the other very halloween-y accessories, and of course, my dream dress! The two chokers on the left, are just too amazing for words... the one on the bottom has a skeleton for a cameo -- how frikking sweet is that!? and the crystal spider in the bouquet is just a perfect touch... i *heart* the idea of striped stockings instead of pantyhose or barelegs (especially since it will be FREEZING outside o.o) and although i'd *love* to have a dragonfly somewhere in the wedding (in memory of my step-grandfather Bud Schimmel) i may not be able to wear it as a necklace. but we shall see. that one up there though, has stolen my heart!
I would show you all deco porn, but i'm getting sleepies, and can't seem to find half of my references... *grr* so once i can track them all down with my awesome google-fu skills, i shall post it up as well. (and probably find a little more to add to the collage since it's kinda bare and it's mostly a bunch of pictures of pumpkins in various forms! lol.
Anyways, i'd love to hear your comments -- those of you still reading. It's nice to know when you're being paid attention to... lol.
