I'm over on the My Wedding Favors blog again this week sharing some lovely inspiration for a romantic English Garden wedding. Think gorgeous greenery, big florals and shabby chic details - it has me missing spring! So much lovely wrapped up in one, super floral package and I love it! Make sure you stop on over to the My Wedding Favors blog to check out the full post along with my details[...]
Amongst this crazy, below-zero temps we're experiencing right now, some loveliness emerges with the BHLDN Spring collection. They've outdone themselves once again with gorgeous gowns, shoes, accessories and decor for the 2016 wedding season, and I had such a fun time looking through the new pieces and pulling some of them together into lovely looks. BHLDN Spring Collection Look One: Roane Th[...]
Today's Music Monday is another throwback to the 2000's when Glory Us by Acceptance came out and I was IN LOVE with the song. Such a great beat and lovely lyrics to match! This song starts out slowly and build so wonderfully, making it the perfect slow dance song for your indie wedding playlist. Plus, since it's a throwback that not everyone has heard, you're guests will love this refreshin[...]
I'm a little late on blogging about Pantone's colors of the year - yes, colors: Rose Quartz & Serenity.  They chose two colors this year and I personally love the pairing. The lovely hue of pink goes perfectly with this dusty shade of blue, and I recently shared an inspiration board over on the My Wedding Favors Blog with my picks for rose quartz and serenity inspiration for your wedding day. [...]
If you're new here, you may not know that I write a monthly column on The Budget Savvy Bride sharing my favorite inexpensive font pairings for your wedding invitations, should you choose to DIY them instead of hire someone to do them for you. I have a wonderful time each month choosing the main fonts and pairing them with a complimentary font, and it often leads to me buying at least one new favor[...]
Do you ever have those songs where as soon as you hear them, you're instantly transported back to a certain place in time and you feel like you're there all over again? That's how I am with a few songs by Straylight Run, namely this one - The Tension and the Terror. I started listening to Straylight Run in the fall of 2004 when I first met my hubby. We would spend hours just laying in his bed (at [...]
Who knew that a vintage-inspired ring box would be the next big thing? There's a trend in the styling world to use gorgeous vintage-inspired ring boxes to display engagement rings in wedding photos, and I have fully jumped on the train. While I love real life vintage pieces, The Mrs. Box has created an heirloom quality keepsake ring box that looks as good (if not better!) than the real thing. And [...]
Before I got engaged almost 8 years ago, while on the topic of marriage and I pointed a ring out to my boyfriend (now husband) that I liked. The next weekend he popped the question and presented me with the very ring I showed him. It's princess cut surrounded by tiny stones with stones down the side as well, so it has a slightly vintage feel to it. Had I known then how much I would love history[...]
Happy New Year, my love! I hope you had a wonderful holiday, I took a much needed break from most work and am back on track designing & blogging. Today's wedding song is Tee Shirt by Birdy and it's a lovely tune for your reception playlist. It's from The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack and is so sweetly written - it would work very well for a first dance song or as the song you walk down t[...]
If you're like me, you love giving (and getting!) gift cards - I like knowing that I can buy someone their favorite coffee at Starbucks or the mug they've at Anthropologie but haven't told anyone about. What I don't love is those cardboard sleeves that come with them that most stores (with the exception of Anthro.. helloooo adorable gift cards!). We're fixing that problem today with a new [...]
