Valentine's Day Inspiration

Walmart

is not my favorite store in the world…. and I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way. I’m more of a Target girl! However, every now and then I get an idea and Walmart just happens to be the place where these ideas come to life! I wanted to make a Valentines display that was BUDGET FRIENDLY and somewhat easy to make. So I thought about decorating with TISSUE PAPER. Tissue paper is cheap and as I walked into Walmart, the “Valentine’s Day” section caught my eye. I ended up leaving with 8 packages of tissue paper and I spent a total of $7.00 on this project! obviously I used a few things from home that I already owned… but when it comes to

Save the Dates

When one gets

engaged, the first thing to do is SCREAM and call everyone you love and scream some more! Then, after calling and notifying the close friends and family, you can make the “Relationship Status” change on Facebook. That part is ALMOST as exciting as the shiny new rock on your finger!! Then you start looking at the calendar and thinking of possible dates….. and then the next step is to choose a VENUE, book it…. and then book your photographer! (Well, that’s the order that my planning took place:).  After you have booked your photographer and have shot your engagement session… the time has come for SAVE THE DATES.

Finding "The Dress"

We are going

through a bit of a life change at the moment. I don’t do well with crying puppies in crates. Michael told me to put Bokeh in his crate and go up to my office and just blast the music so I can’t hear him sobbing. ugh. It’s a miserable feeling but I HAVE to get some things done, even though it’s my off season! There are some things that I could accomplish now and they would REALLY save me some time for this upcoming 2012 wedding season. The list is long but I’m working hard at it!!  Normally, on Wednesdays when I feel rushed or I have too much to do, I blog about something interesting… but EASY.

There are

 

so many options when it comes to EXITS! It used to be that “Birdseed” was what you threw at EVERY wedding for the exit. I’m not hating on Birdseed exits because we had a birdseed exit at OUR wedding! (I will warn you thought… that’s a nasty mess to clean up later… my dress and hair were COVERED with seed!!!).  But Birdseed went along with our “Peacock, birdcage, vintage” theme so we had to use it! These days, there are so many more options out there! I’ve heard of people throwing lavendar, live butterflies, etc! It’s really a fun part of the day to make unique! Most people opt for sparklers and

Best Bouquets of 2011

Many don’t

realize this… but the bridal bouquet has a super power. Yes, it does. I’m not exaggerating or over analyzing…the bouquets on a wedding day have SUCH a huge effect on the images!! If you look at the majority of my wedding blog posts, the POP of color normally comes from the bouquets! They add so much! The florals of the wedding day have the ability to tie EVERYTHING together. From the boutonnieres to the centerpieces at the reception… the bouquets can incorporate it all! When brides emails me in a panic about the floral costs and they say they just want to do fake silk flowers instead…
