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…

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….

Weekend Recap…Happily Ever After!

This weekend was so great, but as always, WAY too fast!  We were so excited to attend the wedding of two of our friends, Justin and Kerri!  It was so much fun!!  The wedding was at the Waterview, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas, along with Kerri and Justin’s thoughtful touches.  The bride and groom…

I only listen to my Mom sometimes…

Sorry Mom, the truth is out.  I only listen to you sometimes.  The one time I didn’t listen to you and I am glad I didn’t was in regards to having Thor present at our wedding. For a little background, my Mom loves Thor, but Thor is a little challenging.  He is challenging in the cutest…

Our Engagement Story…from my perspective…

Recently I have heard a lot of my friends being unsure as to whether or not it was worth it get engagement pictures before their big day.  I personally was not so sure if I wanted them but our photographer highly suggested them because she said it gives her a chance to get to know…

Happy Turkey Day People!

I have to start this Thanksgiving with a hilarious story because last night I got my new passport with my married name, since we will be traveling overseas in April.  I thought I would get all the paperwork done while I had time, instead of waiting till the last minute.  I was so excited to…

Thankful that this Wednesday is basically a FRIDAY!

  In sticking with my routine Wedding Wednesday posting, I’ve decided to recognize a few people that made our wedding day truly a dream come true.  Those people are our parents and grandparents.  Getting married is a lot of fun, but it is also very stressful and very costly.  Without the help of our parents…

Getting the best photos of your wedding day…

I was fortunate enough to have Anne Lee, as my wedding photographer.  Leading up to our wedding, Anne and I chatted back and forth, organized our engagement photo session in NYC, and discussed and planned the wedding day pretty much down to the minute.  It was so helpful that Anne had photographed many weddings prior…
