Wedding Theme...Check

Hooray for another wedding post!
I wanted to share with you all how things where coming along so this post will be introducing our wedding theme.
I won't lie. Choosing a theme was very difficult.
We thought about a vintage theme, a picnic theme, a creative crafter theme, but when finally decided on a the garden wedding theme.
This may not be as original or creative as it could have been, but I feel that if we really knock the ball out of the park then our wedding day will be perfect.

My grandmother was kind enough to give me a beautiful bird cage for people to put their cards in, and this little guy here will be sure to bring a smile to our guest.

I was thrilled when I scored these miniature gardening tools at an antique shop!
I'll be using them to decorate our table centerpieces.
Now I'm on the hunt for miniature gnomes....

I've been inspired by Elycia to doodle pictures for cards and order of ceremony booklets.
This is the doodle that I will be using for the bridesmaid cards.
Should I draw a garden background to go along with the theme?
What do you think?

As for the dress?
Well...that must remain top secret as you all know, but I do very much like the one of the right...

So there's a little sneak peekeroo and our wedding plans so far.
I will have more to share next week after a few wedding meetings and errands down in Vermont.

Until tomorrow...
