The Write-In

For any bride, regardless of how unique their planning is, there is one thing they share; wedding planning is stressful. Among the top stressers is the guest list – and beyond the guest list, the uninvited guest. It happened to me in planning, and I’ve seen it happen to so many brides. After much consideration, […]

Details Meetings

Details meetings with your wedding venue can be a really exciting moment to see all of your hard work and planning come together – or it can create a lot of a stress if you’re not prepared for it! If you haven’t head of this meeting yet, let me give you some context: a details […]

The Dream Dress

A wedding gown is truly a unique article of clothing. Although I am 1000% in support of non-traditional wedding looks – I’m a big fan of jumpsuits in particular – I knew I wanted to go with a classic white gown. For a while, I envisioned more of a bohemian look – something with lace […]

Not sure if we should dive into how ironic it would be, BUT, it is something to be aware of. A wedding I attended recently was held in a beautiful tent on the coast. The couple got lucky – the rain held off and the breeze wasn’t bad, but it got me thinking of weather […]

Center of Attention

Of all of the details of your wedding day, center pieces often become the center of attention. Throughout the day, your guests are moving, greeting, dancing. But for over an hour, your guests are stationary at a seat. Whether you’re serving brunch of a 5 course dinner, your center pieces become the center of attention. […]

Bathroom Baskets

A September bride was talking with me about bathroom baskets – and it was then that I realized that a bride may never see the other side of it, so now wonder she asked: Do you make a basket for the men’s room? The answer is yes. While I firmly believe gender neutral bathrooms should […]
