Hey everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself since I am new to the board. I am marrying my high school sweetheart (we have been dating for five years, started when I was a hs senior). I am a HUGE history buff and majored in it in college, however, my FI not so much. So this is my major road block. I would love to do a completely vintage (1890-1910) era wedding but I cant go too overboard because I dont want it to be to costumey and not include my FI's likes.
So what I have tried to do is create a theme centered around a vintage royal garden theme. I am using lace, flowers, lanterns, several different shades of purple, Fleur-de-lis, and birdcages. I am trying to do a combination of vintage and modern to keep us both happy. Do you ladies have any advice so that I can maintain the vintagey feel without making my FI feel like he is part of a living musuem?
