Holiday Shower Baskets…Wedding Wednesday!

This was supposed to be posted last week, but I made a mistake!  So here it is today… My shower was such a fun day!! I felt so lucky to have so many people come out to celebrate our wedding.  Dan was there to eat the yummy lunch and help me unwrap all the generous…

Bra fitting…should you try it?!

I still remember watching an episode of Oprah one day with my mom and Oprah was talking about how life changing it was to get professionally fitted for a bra.  I thought it was an interesting topic but never really thought anything of it and would always get my bras from Victoria’s Secret. I still…

Special touches…wedding style!

When we got married, I knew I wanted it to be slightly untraditional. We got married in a traditional Catholic ceremony, however instead of opting for a venue for our reception–we decided to make a venue out of my mother-in-law’s farm. It was a lot of work, somedays a little more stressful than others but…

Bridesmaid Dress Shopping!

On this Wedding Wednesday, I am feeling compelled to write a little about bridesmaid dress shopping, as I am currently trying to find the perfect dress for my friend Christian’s wedding!  I am so honored that she has asked me to be in her wedding party and it has been fun to be on the…

Preserving Your Bouquet…

After the wedding day is over, there are lots of memories that you want to preserve and one of those for me was my bouquet.  When my sister got married in 2013, my mom got her a lantern and she put her bouquet, her husband’s boutonnière, their place card, and a few other items.  I…

Will YOU be MY Bridesmaid?!

One thing I couldn’t wait to do when wedding planning was ask my friends and family to be in my wedding.  I had seen so many fun ideas and decided to a few different types of cards from Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/205144077/funny-will-you-be-my-maid-of-honor-card?ref=shop_home_feat_4 It was so hard to choose because I thought they were all so funny and unique….

The best thing I did while wedding planning…

Planning a wedding is a huge task. One of the most important things to remember as a bride is that it will all come together…some way or another. One piece of advice that one of my coworkers–Jonathan gave me while planning, was that even if something doesn’t go as planned–I will be the only one…

Choosing a Bridal Party…Wedding Wednesday!!

I think it is funny when people say every girl dreams about their wedding day because the truth is some don’t.  I, however, was one of the ones that did.  I still remember when my mom dressed me up as a bride for Halloween one year, and I thought it was the best year ever….

Our Abbreviated Wedding Video…

Here it is!  Our highlight video from our wedding!  I went back and forth about having a videographer.  So many people said you don’t really need a videographer, but thank God I did not listen.  We have a longer version with all the events from our wedding day, but this is our abbreviated version.  I…

Forceful Vendors…Just Walk Away

One thing I strongly disliked while wedding planning was interviewing potential vendors and calling around and explaining what we wanted.  The first vendor I thought I liked for catering turned out to be the most wretched human being.  When we first started wedding planning, I wanted our wedding to be super casual, on the farm,…

Feel Good Friday…A New Year That is FULL of HAPPINESS!

It is so crazy to me that 2015 is a thing of the past.  It was such a great year in my life, one in which I gained a really amazing husband and became a first time auntie to two of the cutest and most lovable little nieces.  As much as I loved wedding planning…

Creating Your Ceremony…

We decided that we wanted to have a very traditional Catholic Church ceremony for our wedding.  It actually wasn’t even really a question between the two of us, we both sort of knew this was how we would get married. I love the ceremony part of weddings because not only does it make it official,…
