Start with some Inspiration!
We started with one of our inspirations.....
Country Living Magazine!! Over the
years they have done some beautiful
layouts of outdoor country weddings and
this is just a few of the pages from our
"tear out' collection that we have kept.
Since I don't live by my family, we
scanned these photos in on our
computers and so  we could  email them
back and forth for each other to see.
We all really liked the outdoor feel, with
food being laid out like you would see in a
French country wedding!!

Look at the tablecloth all pleated
with large planters on top!
Large urn with flowers
and plates stacked
Love that!!
Decide on location!
Well we were all hot to trot on having it
outdoors but we realized that in August
it would be just too dang hot!! So we
found a cute reception hall that allowed
us to hang all the white paper lanterns
and it turned out so nice!!
Decide menu
We chose to use fresh fruit like
grapes (grown in our mother's
backyard!), strawberries, green
apples (also from our mother's
backyard!) pineapple, and melons.
We used grape leaves to line the
baskets. Three cold hard cheeses
sliced and one hot  Brie cheese that
was served with maple syrup and
roasted pecans!! (so delish!!),
spread on sliced French baguettes.
Then on the dessert table we had bite
sized brownies, mexican wedding
cake cookies, chocolate dipped
strawberries and chocolate truffles
from
www.eatlotsachocolate.com and
we also served punch and lots of
water bottles!
Great books on planning on a wedding
and some great deals on Silver
wedding bands on Amazon! We love
the website www.theknot.com it has so
many great ideas and you can search
by color!!
