Accessorizing with Rock My Vintage!

A few months back I was contacted by a fun vintage shop based in the U.K. called Rock My Vintage. Rock My Vintage asked if I would be interested in working together with them on a blog post. I’ve been so excited to share this shop with you all because: They have really unique and fun…

Wedding Wednesday…Alternatives to a traditional Guest Book

One of my favorite details from our wedding was our guest book.  Instead of having a traditional guest book, my dad made Dan and I a set of custom corn hole boards that everyone signed.  I love it because we will forever cherish the boards and be able to have them for many years to come….

Weekend Recap…Filled with Love

We had some seriously crazy weather this weekend!!! Our screen door is a little bent out of shape from all the wind, but luckily it’s still semi-working.  We are so thankful to our neighbor for coming over and tending to our house, as we were up in CT.  He chased our trash cans around the…

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….

Wedding Wednesday…SURPRISE packages for the Bride-to-be!

Another thing that my bridesmaids did for me for the year before my wedding day was surprise boxes.  My sister-in-law Laura organized this fun project.  It made the stressful days so much better and I truly appreciated the thought that went into each box.  Most of the boxes had themes which made them each different…

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…

Back in Action…Hawaii Recap

So, I am back in action over here, although still pretty exhausted from our travel home from Hawaii yesterday.  We left Maui at 7:30 pm, flew to Honolulu, and then flew direct from Honolulu back to NJ.  It wasn’t the worst flight back, but red eyes always mess me up for a few days and…
