IB#123: Modern & classic I-do

Ola loves! we loooove the way this inspire board was presented! Quite the fantastic combo of modern + classic in one go! Although choosing an unusual venue, one that people might not immediately think of when planning a wedding, may or may not be cheaper than your typical banquet hall, on the other hand you might be inspired to think outside the box when it comes to the details. Besides, its an awesome feeling to be know as the "Unforgettable wedding" ..and that thinking outside the box is key to planning a wedding on a budget!
Credit to Snippet & Ink, by making this fabulous board inspired by an Art gallery venue. Moreover, you can always find muse in the old classic places such as Museums, theaters, farms… Certainly the guests might forget all of the tiny details, but they will defnitely remember the unique venue and visually the interesting theme! So, let's get creative!

The Paper: It is always cheaper to print in one color than two (or four), and stitch a line of colorful thread across the top of your invites for a little something extra. For your seating cards, sit down in front of a movie and stamp away, using rubber stamps to spell out your guests’ first names. If you feel really ambitious, stamp one letter in color (maybe just the letter “R” or something like that).
The Fashion: Accessorize with a vintage veil and these sweet pearl earrings (they’d also make great bridesmaid gifts). For the groom, how about a pocket square in one of your colors in lieu of a boutonniere? And there are several ways you can fold them.
The Decor: Large round balloons are a great way to make a visual impact and hang numbered tags from the strings as clever table numbers. Large jars full of buttons (or other objects like stones, sand, small plastic) are interesting decoration that doesn’t have to cost a lot.
The Flowers: Eschew flowers except for the bouquets. Splurge on your own – mix purple clematis with dusty miller and lamb ears to fit with this color palette – and keep the bridesmaid bouquets a bit smaller and simpler.
The Food: To save, use more expensive ingredients in hors d’oeuvres rather than in entrees, like the lobster in these summer rolls. For your cake, decorate it yourself with a fun topper, fondant letters, or a stencil.
Other Details: For an art gallery reception, another fun idea is to set up a photobooth area for guests with a large empty frame in it.
Splurges: If the groom has reason to wear a suit again, splurge on a nice one. A well-fitted suit will always be in style, and can even be worn as separates after the weddin.
For Free: Get your friends and family involved. Ask someone with a musical talent to play during the ceremony, or have your great-aunt bake her famous lemon bars, or see if your friend with a sewing machine won’t make the flower girl’s dress or ring pillow. The people who love you probably have more varied talents than you might know.
