• {Real Wedding} Tara & Jason: Pretty Blue Southern DIY Wedding

    I just love a good Southern wedding, don’t you?  Spanish moss, sweet tea, Southern charm…what’s not to love?  Between the soft blue color palette and the absolutely fab DIY glass chandelier that hung over the ceremony, this wedding fits the bill.

    Advice to couples planning now?  I would say to start early and do tons of research. I think if you do your homework you can be creative and original without breaking the bank. It’s also so important to find the right vendors and that doesn’t happen overnight. I feel like our wedding day was so much fun and stress free because I had put so much time into the planning and I knew I could trust my vendors 100% to carry out my vision.

    The one detail that was probably the most memorable was the glass globe candle chandelier at the ceremony. A friend with a metal workshop whipped up a stainless steel frame for me and I tied individual glass hanging globes with tea lights to the frame.  We hung the chandelier from rope on a tree branch that hung right over Jason and I at the ceremony. I thought it looked great as the sun was setting.

    I would have to say that the attention to detail was my personal mark on the wedding day. I really tried to make everything individual to us from the custom designed programs and menus to the 5 different flavored cakes on antique stands and the DIY glass globe chandelier at the ceremony. I wanted there to be something beautiful and original everywhere you looked, I hope that came across to our guests.
     
    I die over that chandelier!  And the shades of blue and gorgeous florals are pretty fantastic too.  Oh, and take note on that ceremony decor of candles lining the aisle.  A super budget friendly idea and just as beautiful as florals.  Maybe even more beautiful…  What do you think?

      Love the details of this wedding and the chandelier! I also used the hanging bulbs for my wedding – a DIY project where I added silk roses dipped in glitter and hung them in the trees along with crystals 🙂

      The Spanish moss is unreal! This wedding is classic and will never go out of style! So elegant 🙂
