Planning a January Wedding on Pinterest

My wedding is in exactly four weeks. FOUR WEEKS! Although I feel like I haven't done anything at all, and as though there is still so much to do, I actually have been working fairly steadily towards my wedding goals. Pinterest, the great spot for creativity/ black hole for time spent on the internet, has inspired many of my wedding projects. Today I'm going to share the pins that have inspired me the most, and those whose projects are in the works or completed.

First, the color scheme. I waffled on this for quite some time. After all, it is a January wedding, and most typical wedding colors scream of summer. I wanted something wintery, but not your usual icicles and pale blues. I decided on dark gray and green after seeing this pin:

Besides the colors, I've relied heavily on Pinterest for decoration inspiration. This tablescape really says it all:

Although my  reception will look not-at-all like this in reality, I've taken the colors, the green and white flowers, the green and gray (of course), and the natural elements and woven them all together. Outside the ceremony, my dad has created a version of this sign:

My friends and I created lace, twine, burlap, and ribbon candle jars for the tables based on this idea:

I've decided baby's breath is my primary flower, and burlap is a definite. (Plus, I made my own version of the signs.):

I have a (faux) fur (and my dress looks amazingly similar to this dress, albeit thousands of dollars less):

I've created my own version of a program styled like this one:

These are printed and tied with green ribbon for the kiddos:

A fascinator has been borrowed from a friend who got married last fall:

Scrabble magnets are made and ready to leave the party as favors:

An entrance way will be created by my brother:

And twig wreaths with our initials will hang on the doors as guests enter:
