I’ve always loved seeing these posts from other Bees. (Mrs. Pony, Mrs. Funnel Cake, Mrs. Honey, Mrs. Pin Cushion, Mrs. Turtle, Mrs. Peep Toe, Mrs. Pretzel, Mrs. Cardigan, Mrs. Sand Dollar”¦the list goes on and on!)
I made my inspiration board after we had a lot of our details in mind, so I’m not surprised that it matches up quite well. Here’s my original, pre-wedding board:

And here’s what our wedding looked like:
[All photos except for the straws by Rozy Seitz (I took the straw photo)]
Pretty close, right? There are a few differences, though. The flowers turned out more orange-y, the ceremony area ended up looking different with the small tent in place, and the cake is way off (but cute, and tasty!). I don’t actually have any good close-ups of the bunting or the photos, but our tent turned out way less bunting-y than my inspiration.
You can’t really see the straws on my board but they were yellow-striped, just like my inspiration! I pulled the colour swatches on the bottom directly from the images in the board.
What do you think, Hive? Close or not quite?
