Inspiration Board with my wedding's actual venue.

There is one thing in my wedding that I'm SUPER excited about besides marrying my fiance: the Venue. Let's just say that I luck out and have a great venue without paying an arm and leg for it. I'm proud to have some talented relatives in the family, sadly I'm not part of that cool group.

The restaurant was designed by my uncle, who is also the architect and construction engineer for all of our homes in Vietnam. My aunt decorated it with random things she found by, sometimes, wandering into strangers' houses during her trips to the villages. It was my first choice of venue and it's an honor for me to be able to have my wedding there.

I'm not decisive at all when I needed to pick a theme. I don't know what I want: classic, elegant, modern or rustic. I know that I need a theme that works with all the venue's decorations as it would be a shame if we can't incorporate them. You will see that modern decoration doesn't quite fit. Contemporary is also not working. That leaves me, or so I think, rustic and vintage. Another detail that is also very important: everything has to be doable and practical in Vietnam. I'll go into Vietnamese wedding culture in the future.

Well, this board is dedicated to my cousin, who is my wedding planner. Luckily, I'm her third brides. I hope that she will do all her trial and error with the first two so my wedding can be perfect. I'm just kidding!!! I don't pay her anything so I can't really complain that she hasn't started working on anything yet.
