J'adore Paris....considering a theme!
It seemed only right when considering a possible theme for our wedding day, that Paris should be right at the top of the list. Now,we aren't talking wall to wall Eiffel Towers,berets,accordians and anything else obviously associated with the city. I don't want an obvious theme, just little subtle touches.I had considered going along the lines of an Amelie inspired theme, but that's too whimsical, or maybe Chanel, but that's too glamorous for our informal wedding. Then I remembered a photograph by one of my favourite photographers and that decided it....vintage Paris.
I love his other works that depict life in post war Paris.
Now comes the tricky part. How do I get to inject a little Parisian vintage into the day without making it look too obvious? Our venue at Goldbrick House just cries out vintage and is perfect for adding a lttle bit of 1950's Paris.The ceremony and wedding breakfast room has gorgeous plummy purple upholstered chairs, so I would like to incorporate purple and maybe a little sage green. I really do need some inspiration, so if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them. Meanwhile I'm going to listen to a little Edith Piaf and pretend I'm sitting in a cafe on a boulevard, drinking un cafe and watching the world go by.
A bientot mes amies. xx
