So I''ve decided I need to stop lurking in BWW because it does horrible things to me....
I don''t have a ring yet but I''ve already put together an "inspiration board"

I think it''s time for an intervention!!!

Gorgeous inspiration board! (I''m such an enabler.) Can I ask where your mountain setting is? I am a mountain girl, and I thought I recognized it.

I lurked and saved things to my inspiration folder on my computer for months before getting engaged. After I got engaged, a good chunk of it changed; some of my preferences changed after looking at more magazines and going to more weddings, but I also tried to take my FI''s taste and our budget into account. So I say, keep inspiration board-ing away, but be aware that you might end up with something different when the time comes to put down those deposits

It may be early but your collage is beautiful.

Are you hoping for a winter wedding? I love the lilac and purple combination - never seen that before. And that cake is very pretty!

Freke yours is awesome!!! I was thinking blue and silver too since we''ll be getting married in the winter...but then thought warm purples would be a good contrast to the snow..

Kitty: I''m glad you like it...The pic in the top right is in Beaver Creek CO...it''s just called the Beaver Creek Resort...I''m hoping to have our reception there. I love the pic because the resort is the only thing lit up...it just looks so cool.

Sha: Yeah winter is what we had in mind...either December 09 or Jan 10


I started to put together a "Ceremony Inspiration board" but had to stop myself...I was getting way too carried away...maybe that can be a project for tomorrow

I vote for tomorrow! I can't tell you how many inspiration collages I've made. A whole bunch when we talked about getting married here, and then about a gazillion more when we started talking about getting married in Vegas.

I seriously think I have probably made about...35 of them. (I'm so ashamed!)

ETA: BTW, I totally forgot to mention it, but I love everything you have on there. It's absolutely gorgeous!

haha! Well, I've got tons of plans and photos to go along with it, just never made the collage just yet. Looks like I better get to work and make one myself as I already have everything I need to make one. hehe

. Beaver Creek isn''t too far away from where I grew up. It''s one of my favorite places to ski because the runs are so long, and the lift lines are never that bad. Are you a Colorado girl?

I will totally help enable. I am such a bad BWW lurker, I love looking at their pictures/inspiration boards. I have yet to creat one since I am going back and forth about time of year and between 2 locations. Mind you we probably won''t be engaged for another 9 months or so (hopefully!) I also spend way more time than needed on brides.com and theknot.com. Yet, everytime I am on the knot I find a great article I want to read or a slideshow that I must sign up to see. I feel like I would be a cheater if I signed up before I was engaged...silly I know.

I love the boards. I think there is something magical and beautiful about a winter wedding (can you tell I am considering that option? slightly biased). Lets keep the enabling going...I am fluctuating between a winter (not Christmas) white wedding in a beautiful restaurant in a rose garden in Connecticut or a Gatsby style June wedding same place with soft colors but also mostly whites. Then the crazy side in me is thinking about the reception at Mystic Aquarium in CT. I know, 2 totally different ideas. I think in the long run SO and I will go for the June Gatsby, but I love looking at other ideas...and goodness knows I have some time on my hands to figure these things out.

So, speak up other LIW''s, what will your wedding one day be like?

Man, I LOVE the LIW board. Everytime I think I''m doing some ridiculous LIW thing, I find out that others are 10x worse than me!

I have not made an inspiration collage yet, but now I kind of want to! All of yours looks so nice!

AMS! My shoes had a white background, so I guess I got lucky on that one.

Your shoes are awesome!

The dress is by Pattis Bridal. I found them randomly on the knot, and I love them!!! They''re all so me, flowy, lacy, ruffly...ahhhh.
