Take My Sweater: Inspiration vs. Reality

Many bees before me have written posts about their original inspiration board versus how the wedding actually turned out. I always loved seeing those posts, so I was very excited to get to do one of my very own.

Way back when I first became a bee (which was exactly a year ago yesterday!) I wrote a post about the inspiration board I was using for our wedding.

Well, I put together another board with actual photos from the wedding, and I was kind of shocked to see how true I stayed to my original inspiration!


So, what do you think? Did I turn my original inspiration into reality? Did you use inspiration boards in your planning process?
