Guest Post – Patience from White Lacquer

Please welcome Patience from White Lacquer today.  My nephew is getting married soon and plans to have his wedding in an old barn.  So, I’ve been paying closer attention to all of the rustic wedding photos out there lately!  Well, Patience is also getting married soon and always has tons of wedding eye candy on her blog.  So, I asked her to share some today!

Hey there Hyphen lovies!!!   My name is Patience….I have a lil blog called White Lacquer.  I was so flippin’ excited that Kristy asked me to guest post for her during this exciting time.  For the last 8 months, I’ve been ridiculously obsessed with weddings….probably due to our pending nuptials.  So, I thought I would share with you my dream wedding….with an unlimited budget in mind.  I’m actually pretty thrifty by nature, so I plan on using some of these elements on our special day, but with a budget in mind.  Anyhoo….its party time!!!

We’ll start by how cute my dress….hair….and make up will be.

I just ordered my dress….it is somewhat similar to this one.

I’ll be wearing a glamorous bird cage veil.

My hair will be up and somewhat more formal for the ceremony.

And then for party time….down and waivy.

And in case you’re wondering, I’ll totally be posing hot just like this.

Gorg smokey eyes?  Yes please!

But enough about me.  My bridesmaids will we wearing lovely shades of blush, cream, taupe, gray, and peach.  These photos will last a life time, so I want them to feel just as special as I do.

Joshy Bobby, {the luckiest man alive} will wear a gray suit and will be even more excited than this guy.

The scene of the ceremony and party will look like this:

I know what you’re thinking.  Get a room, right?  It’s just such a magical moment.  I could go on all day about it.  For weekly Wedding Wednesday updates….head here.

One thing is for sure, there are some elements we will for sure have.  Chandeliers.  Peonies.  Trees.  Each other.  In no particular order of course.

Thank you so much for having me share some dream wedding details, Kristy!!

Thanks, Patience!  Such lovely images!  Did you all obsess over your wedding?

I actually didn’t – I just wanted to be married to my best friend.  I couldn’t care less about the ceremony and party beforehand.  I didn’t grow up dreaming about my wedding at all.   I was much more of a tomboy.  I actually thanked Michelle over at Decor and the Dog for saying she hated going to showers of all kind.  So do I.  Love the friend, hate the shower.  I just don’t make a great “girl” in that way, I guess.

Yet, the truth is, today, if I had to do it all over again (15 years later renewing vows), I would be much more obsessed with my wedding, I’m sure!   Back then, believe it or not, I had a budget of only $2000 and yet over 300 guests!   It was kept very simple.   Yet, it was great.  And, of course, there was no Pinterest back then.  Who am I kidding, we barely had the internet at all!!

Did you obsess over one thing more than another?  Or, just everything?   Was it a stressful process?

  1. such beautiful images! patinece is going to have one gorgeous wedding!

  2. Beautiful pictures. I was totally consumed by my wedding and I had so much fun looking for ideas and inspiration. I still love looking at wedding and bridal magazines, kind of crazy! Did I get this right? You’ve been married 15 years? Did you get married at 15? You look waaaaay young to be married that long.

    • Haha, thanks for saying that! I’m 35! And, my birthday is this weekend so I’ll be 36. Whew. Back when we got married, we barely even had the internet and it was nothing like this… I’m sure that made a big difference. :) I think most brides are pretty consumed. I tend to be odd with things like that – not too into showers, weddings, etc. Though, I do love to see images like this! And, today, if I renewed our vows, I’d be more into it, for sure!

  3. We are celebrating 10 years this June, and the memories of our wedding are perfect….unfortunately, the one thing we did not invest in was good photography. We have posed pictures that a family member (who really knew nothing about photography) took. :-( I’m looking forward to having my pro photographer sister (www.kaylajphoto.com) take some nice pictures for our 10 year – and yes, I’ll be buying a fancy dress, he’ll dress up, and people might tell us to get a room. ;-) Congrats Patience! It will be perfect!!!

  4. Swoon! These pictures are beautiful! My best friend was totally hands-off with her wedding planning 2 years ago, she didn’t really have a plan or anything, but I was the obsessive opposite :)

  5. Love these gorgeous pictures! My daughter is beginning to think about what kind of wedding she would like to have. She is more like you, maybe not such a big affair but these pictures might inspire here!

  6. So fun to see my bbff over here sharing her wedding inspiration! Kristy my hubby and I will be married 14 years this summer and I’m 34 so you married young, just like me. :) I had fun planning our wedding but with pinterest and the internet around, it would have been way more fun! We had so much fun dancing the night away and sneaking off to make out, we want to renew our vows and have a big party again! ;)

  7. I love all your ideas, Patience!! Love the sexy hair and the sexy eye makeup and the pale colours and the romance… so living vicariously through you during your wedding planning!! lol xxx

  8. Gorgeous choices! I say the same thing, while I adored my wedding, where was Pinterest 3 years ago! haha!
