The Overall Style and Colors

Advertisements

So there are several great things about a LOST wedding–Many different venue options (outside, at a park, Botanical Gardens, fallout shelter *Preferred, industrial type of site), Bamboo is CHEAP/FREE cause it grows everywhere and most people hate it and would love for someone to come cut it down for free, It doesn’t need to be super girly (which absolutely isn’t me), Flowers can be used sparingly but still be used to great effect….

But the Cons…. How in the world to do you base a FORMAL/SEMI-FORMAL wedding affair on a TV show that is based off of a Plane Crash onto a tropical island where most of it’s inhabitants live in bamboo “huts” (except when they are in the 1970’s… which, who doesn’t want a 70’s wedding?! (*this girl))…. So you have to find some balance. Something thatĀ emulatesĀ the overall feel of LOST instead of a true representation. I believe I have found some ways of doing this. I have found a particular style of dress that goes with everything…and the wedding party will not be a problem. We already have the food sorted out as well (or at least the plan for the food anyway)…And outdoor weddings… What about bathrooms? What about food prep? Unless you find a farm, but then the natural elements are going to become rustic and country instead… And I am absolutely not going for that!

Another problem I have to address is the fact that I look like I am 12. Well, 17-19 really (I am actually 25). So finding a dress that makes me actually look like a WOMAN getting married instead of a teenager going to prom is a huge deal.

That’s just to name a few! But now that we have some specific things to address, we have our mission!

Lost-season1

Awesome, right?! Everyone that has heard this (that had seen LOST anyway…) have wanted to be a part of it, whether it be the girl who helps me at the dress shop to the ladies showing me rings… And of course they ALL want to see pictures. So, so far it seems like a good idea (in theory anyway). LOST is awesome. We (my fiance of sorts and I) are awesome. Weddings are awesome. Perfect. Obviously we have some ideas of things we want (Dharma table names, fish biscuit favors…), but when you really think about how intricately woven LOST is, and how intricately woven weddings are when they DON’T have such a ridiculously awesome theme… you realize that this is going to be one interesting feat to pull off. And how to do it without it being all about LOST and losing yourselves in it… OR losing the LOST so it just looks like you’re having some kitschy tropical luau themed wedding (which a Hawaiian honeymoon to the Island where they filmed LOST certainly wouldn’t help…..*we may save this one for an awesome anniversary trip instead and do something strictly US for our Honeymoon…)? Anyway. This is where I will post the ideas and the plans and the vendors and businesses I intend to use, and well, pretty much EVERYTHING I plan to do #1 So I can keep up with it all and look at images, etc. at the same time (instead of ONLY using a notebook), #2 So the wedding party, etc can keep up with things as well (and learn a bit about LOST since I do not think any of them have actually seen the entire series…), #3 So I can compare and contrast the original plans and how they evolved to give me the actual Wedding, and #4 So I can maybe inspire some other super awesome brides out there, whether it be with LOST ideas or just wedding planning in general. So anyway. Here goes.
