#3 Outdoor Summer Chic

This is my dream theme. Absolutely everything.

Credits (l. to r.): Betsey Johnson dress, photographed in Brides magazine; boutineer and backyard setting from Lena Corwin's wedding, Martha Stewart Weddings; fabric swatches from Urban Outfitters; punch bar, Martha Stewart Weddings; etched owl (unknown); potted succulents, Martha Stewart Weddings; vintage plates from Lena Corwin's wedding, Martha Stewart Weddings; Twilight movie prom scene, If I inaccurately credited a photo, please let me know!

So, this is ^hopefully^ a very close estimation of what the day will look like - eyelet cotton, owls+birds, outdoors, spring, welcoming, light, quirky, a little indie, a little vintage, a little rock; fun. Just a start of course, because nothing has been chosen/ordered, etc. *pulls hair frantically*

Two problems already, however: Betsy Johnson never had the dress made for distribution- I may decide to have it recreated... (Surely that's a stressless task, right?) Also, cannot find a cute owl for save-the-dates/invites/program fans/table cards. Would love to tackle it now on Photoshop/Illustrator, but ...uh... design skills = absent.

I'm more than open to suggestions for Chicago/northern IL-based, not dramatically overpriced professional recommendations for seamstresses or graphic stationery designers... Give me your recommendations.
