As you may have read, I’m worried our wedding will become a lukewarm mess, with semi-interesting aspects that come together to leave our guests feeling meh.

I fear our ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and yes, even the details, will leave our guests almost cold. Or they’ll think it’s too busy, too crowded with a plethora of details and a spectrum of flair. Too cramped with poms and chalkboards, buttons and bunting, pumpkins and brownies. Is that possible?
Mostly, I am concerned about disappointing myself. I’ll be so pissed if all this time and effort and energy results in a lackluster look. Like, seriously pissed. I might never plan a wedding again if that happens.
Here’s the latest inspiration boards I have developed…
The reception tables and centerpieces…

Add in some bunting, some vintage furniture, cake and s’mores and brownies, some colorful soda and some stripey straws and maybe some yard games and a petting zoo…OK, OK, I’m kidding about the petting zoo. But add in all those other things, and maybe subtract the pumpkins, and what do you think?
Is it hot or is it not?*
