One of my favorite wedding planning tips I’ve heard tossed around is that if the whole thing overwhelms you (you’re not alone!), start with a single piece. Find an object you love (has some kind of significance to you and the hubs) and use it as a jumping off point for planning. Pro planner or DIY diva, this idea works the same. Use your object as an inspiration for color scheme, taste, design or how you want your day to feel. I’ve heard of people falling in love with a teacup, a pair of earrings, wallpaper, dress, you name it!
I’d use the Imari plates I inherited from my Gram—I adore the warm colors, prints and weight of the plates (they’re hanging in my apartment and easily the chicest thing I own).
Cool, right? They remind me of the Chinoiserie-inspired wedding and fashion trends from the past couple seasons. This stylish teal palette has me daydreaming garden party with a sunny outdoor ceremony (and methinks it needs a tea-infused cocktail!) Do y’all have something inspiring your I Do decor?

Could be so cool to letter a menu/welcome sign on with whiteboard markers; Swoon John Galliano for Dior’s Spring 2009 couture show; Priscilla of Boston maids; Garden Inspired shoot by Allan Zepeda via Style Me Pretty; Vintage Art Deco Jade Earrings (love the $32 price tag!); Jasper Conrad at Wedgwood Teacup; Jasper Conrad at Wedgwood plate; Ballard Designs Chair
