I never thought people would look down on the vintage theme. So far only one person loved my theme. I have just a little over a month before my wedding and EVERYTHING I took hours researching has been rejected or I get the odd face and they tell me it's your wedding do what ever you want. That makes me feel horrible when they give me the iffy look and it hurts. I wanted my jars/bottles tied with ribbons (didn't happen). I wanted this to be my handmade wedding and I spent days perfecting on making the bird cages and decorating it with moss/flowers. And what does the FI tell me! We're spending this much money on the wedding and we're not going to have DIY bird cage. FINE, I will research bird cages and buy them. I don't even know where to buy that many bird cages. I wasted days working on it. Everyone was excited for the elegant theme I started with but I really really wanted vintage. I found my venue that's a good environment for the vintage theme. Outdoor ceremony and reception in an awesome beautiful greenhouse. I want everyone to enjoy the decor with me because I did pour my heart into this wedding. But.... I have a strong feeling in my gut everyone will be disappointed.
