Inspiration vs. Reality

I’ve probably read thousands of posts on Weddingbee, but one post that always stood out to me was Mrs. Flamingo’s post-wedding post on her inspiration vs. reality.

I think one of the very best things you can do as a bride is choose a color scheme and a feel for your wedding, and then stick to it!!! I really think sticking to my guns made the whole wedding decision making process easier.

BUT did I do it? Did I follow my own inspiration board?

Here’s my original inspiration board that I made over a year ago:

Pic 3 and 6 are from J. Crew. Pic 5 is from Real Simple Weddings. And pic sixteen is from Miette. All other images from Project Wedding.

And here’s my real wedding:

All pictures from Amanda at Blueberry Photography.

So, what do you think? Did I turn my inspiration into reality?
