2015 Wedding Trend Spotlight: Southwestern Style

One of the big trends for weddings this year is Southwestern weddings. Being a Colorado girl, I can’t get enough of this theme. And after seeing these pictures, I don’t know how anyone can be against it. I just love the bright pops of color; the trends recently have leaned towards pastels and muted shades. I’m so ready to embrace the boldness of the prints and color combinations that the Southwest gives to us. Continue reading

Wedding Themes That Make Sense: Pt. 1

Hi all!

I’m going to start a new series of posts to help all of you brides out there! We’re going to look at wedding themes! I know, I know, you’re all thinking themes?!?! NO WAY. Not my wedding. Not EVER. Let me let you in on a little secret…this was me too. There was no way anyone was going to make me have a themed wedding. Had you asked me my freshman year in college, I would have told you heck yes! Half of the wedding will be winter, half will be summer and there will be snowflakes, and sand, and…..the list goes on. I’d be ashamed to admit that such a thing were true, but the younger version of me kind of knew what was up.

Themes don’t always have to mean Disney princesses, or Renaissance, or Pirates (unless that’s your kind of thing). Themes can be a “feel” more than a blatant “matchy matchy” thing, and they can be more subtle too. Continue reading

How to Have An Epic Honeymoon….Without Making Your Wallet Cry

I had always seen my honeymoon as one of the best things about getting married. Maybe it was because I had more housewares than I could shake my fist at, or because I had already bought my own home, or I had lived with D for so long already that I didn’t feel a traditional registry would fit my style. Along those same lines, I knew I wanted to make our honeymoon one of the most memorable experiences in our lives, and that meant going all out.

Today, it’s all about glitter. If you can’t decide on wedding colors, or themed colors aren’t really your thing, we love the idea of a theme of glitter to bring sparkle and fun to your wedding. Even if you have colors picked out, accents of glitter can be so elegant and exquisite, and your pictures will turn out so pretty too!

Narrowing the Illusive Guest List

If you are anything like me, you want everyone you know to attend your wedding. What can I say? I have very close friend circles! This post will hopefully walk you through and help you narrow down that massive guest list you’ve pulled together-after all, your great aunt Gertrude’s cat’s boyfriend doesn’t really need an invite…..

Don’t let your guest list get so out of hand you spend well over your budget.

First, let me start out by saying you’re not alone. I think that nearly everyone has this problem if they’re planning a traditional wedding. No worries though, it might not be as terrible of an endeavor as you may be envisioning. Continue reading

Finding the perfect wedding dress can be a bit overwhelming if you haven’t been planning your wedding since you were a kid. I  was one of those brides.

Once I finally got engaged, I knew what I wanted my dress to look like, but then as it got closer to me trying dresses on, I started to question what style of dress might look good on my body type. That’s when I started to think about the actual shape of my potential wedding dress….and that’s how I found the perfect style for me. Now, it’s my turn to help you find yours.🙂
