I love how strong I was a month ago, saying that I wouldn’t hire a wedding planner. I am now eating crow and paying out for A Toast Custom Event Planning and I’m already so obsessed with these ladies so I know it’s going to be totally worth it. Aside from that, June - July … Continue reading An Honest Bride: Eleven Months Out
Sometimes it's really hard for me to remember 2019 - the year of the weddings! 2021 is definitely the year of the baby (shoutout to COVID-19) and I think I love it more! Being able to take a break from my own wedding planning to love on my girls and their soon-to-bes is one of … Continue reading The Bebe Edit: Ballparks & Babies & Balloons
I thought it would be super fun and potentially helpful to provide an as-I-go list of wedding planning and tips that have helped me through the wedding planning process. I love planning parties and I think of a wedding as just a large gathering of all of your favorite people, so I decided to forego … Continue reading An Honest Bride: One Year Out
If you’ve been following this journal of life (aka my blog) for a while, then you know by now that I am anything but traditional. When it came to asking my bridesmaids if they...well...would be my bridesmaids, I wanted it to be different. I love all of the weddings I’ve been in and all of … Continue reading My Turn to Pop the Question
A couple of weeks ago, I got to share all about our cottagecore Engagement Party and this week, I’m so excited to chat about the Bridal Brunch that I hosted. Since I had my best girls in town (well most of them) for the engagement party, it was the perfect opportunity to pop the question … Continue reading Will You Be…
It’s officially engagement season and to kick it off, Garrett and I started it with an engagement party! Although we got engaged in November, we hadn’t had the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends because...idk...a pandemic is happening. However, most of our guests had already received the vaccine and the rest quarantined or got … Continue reading Horton’s Getting Muery’d!
We’re not totally into the full-wedding-planning period yet, but we have started locking some concepts, colors and creative ideas that we’ve had. We’ve decided to say no to kids being at the wedding and that we want it small; we’ve chosen the style and season; now - we have to lock down the venue. After … Continue reading I Do, Venue
2020 seems to be the year for either having babies or making them (I guess we’ll blame that on an eight month pandemic)! With my sister’s firstborn making an appearance this year and so many friends have sweet little girls, it’s difficult to contain my excitement. I consider myself well-versed in the way of party … Continue reading The Bebe Edit: A French, Winnie the Pooh Shower
G and I are getting MARRIED! It doesn’t really feel real or like anything has changed, but after announcing it on social media and sharing it via FaceTime with all of my closest friends, it’s starting to become more real. Obviously, I’ll be keeping you all updated with the wedding ventures as they come but … Continue reading Getting Married!
There are few things that I love more than a winter wedding. As I’m coming off two back-to-back weddings, Carmen’s and Ashlyn’s, I can’t help but think about how beautiful the autumn air was and how stunning everyone looked in their jewel tones. It’s normal to be concerned about wearing black to a wedding, avoiding … Continue reading Say “I Do” to Winter Weddings
