The Inspiration : A bit of 40's flair

I think we set a date for our "wedding" finally. I have been going back and forth trying to decide. I say "wedding" because we decided not to have a big ordeal. We are just going to have our family and a few friends join us as we say our vows.

We decided that we wanted to have the small ceremony outside, and it will more than likely be by a lake (he proposed at the lake). Since we really didn't want to make a fuss out of anything I decided that I wasn't going to get a long and formal wedding gown, but that I would stick to something more fun!

I love the romantic style of the 1940's! I always have. I have the most beautiful picture of my grandmother from 1946. It is one of my favorite pictures! All of her pictures amaze me! She was a teenager in the 40's and also married my grandfather in the 40's! I could listen to her stories all day long, and have loved hearing them for the past twenty-nine years!
(Of course it looks blurred here)
Without going on and on about family history ( though I could) here are a few inspirational pictures I picked out for our special day. My favorite color (of course) is pink, so that will be my pop of color! I also love the look of the birdcase veil. It has a 40's feel and isn't too formal! I plan on making my own veil, and will show a tutorial soon!

In addition to the veil I am also going to custom make my bouquet (I even thought about making the cake too). Hope you like my inspirational photos! I will keep you updated on the plans for our special day!
