Wedding Day – Do’s and Don’ts

Woohoo! We did it! Jack and I finally tied the knot and it was absolutely breathtaking! I can’t believe that it has been almost a month since we got married. It seems like yesterday that I was slipping into my dress for the first look. It was truly an amazing day and I cannot thank […]

Our wedding is only 30 days away and things are really starting to hustle and bustle around our little home. We are all done with our bachelor and bachelorette parties, as well as our bridal showers and now it’s time for the home stretch! It took me a while to figure out what to write […]


Unique Ways to Save on Wedding Invitations

Guest post from our bride-to-be blogger Gabi. I like to pride myself on the fact that I like to save money…or at least spend irrationally. “Spend money on what’s important,” is a something that my dad instilled in me at a young age. When the discussion of wedding invitations came up, I really didn’t care […]

Stress. It’s inevitable while you’re planning a wedding. I didn’t think Jack and I would argue over silly things like where we’d get our cake or time management during the weekends, but we have… and it’s okay as long as we come to our senses and figure out a way to forgive and move forward. […]

As I plan my bridal shower, I can’t help but think of all the bridal showers I’ve been to in the past (not to mention think of all the bridal showers I’m going to this summer). No matter the relation to the bride, they’re always slightly awkward and full of strange party games… toilet paper […]


Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses: A Growing Trend

When it comes to who is wearing what in the wedding party, you would think that the bride would have the most trouble picking out her wedding gown…not the case in my situation. I found my dress pretty much right away and for a steal of $99 (Thank you sample sale)! The real challenge has […]
