Dogs at Weddings

If you have a dog and are debating whether or not you should include him or her in your wedding — the answer is YES! But, please, do not dress them in cheesy tuxedos and frilly dresses. After a quick Pinterest search I found a few cute pups ready to walk down the aisle. Enjoy!

If your pooch is well-behaved opt for a full wreath with flowers that compliment your bouquet. Make sure the flowers are dog friendly!

Match your dogs bow tie with the wedding party for a chic look.

A Modern Affair

If I had the opportunity to plan my wedding again…Modern Lounge

I would create a modern lounge area out side and add a vibrant pop of color


Add a little fruit

Chevron, preppy wedding

And of course some chevron to pull it all together

Say Cheese!

If you are looking for an all-in-one prop box for your next event, I can help you out!  Checkout my new Etsy shop and take a look at the “Prop Box” Image

The all-in-one kit includes; 5 handcrafted felt props, one pair of glasses of your choice, one finished wooden prop box, and a “Prop” ribbon.   This little box of fun is perfect for any soirée or wedding!

Each and every piece is made with love by hand and each order can be customized. 

At my recent wedding we had a photo booth and it was a huge hit.  Everyone had a blast grabbing a goofy prop and grinning for the camera.  We sent our guests their pictures with our thank you cards as an added favor.  I highly recommend thinking about a photo booth at your event and there’s so many way to incorporate the booth without going over budget. 

Happy Planning! xoxo

Wedding Card Box: Simple and Easy

One of my biggest wedding mistakes was forgetting a card box.  Not only did it leave guests confused as to where to leave their cards but it was a hassle trying to round-up gifts.  I’m sure there is some kind of etiquette about asking for your gifts at a reception but sometimes you have to break the rules… I found this super easy idea while I was supposed to be writing a paper on ethics (grad school gets in the way of everything)…and had to share.  All you need is a wooden box-I found one at Micheal’s Arts and Crafts store, Clothes Pins, Pretty Ribbon and if you have extra time a coat of paint to match your wedding colors. It’s simple and with a little creativity you can make it pretty!

A Little Inspiration {Board}

I am officially the Unemployed Bride.  I had to resign from a job I recently accepted due to a health issue caused by the products being tested in the office.  So, with all my free time (and in between job searching and wedding planning), I decided to attempt to create a few inspiration boards.  Below is my first attempt after a five month hiatus from Photo Shop.

Save The Date!

After searching everywhere for the perfect save the date, I finally decided on a nautical inspired card that fits my wedding style perfectly. I ordered from By Invitation Only on and I couldn’t be happier.  The Etsy shop owner, Laura was super easy to work with and the quality of the cards and work definitely surpassed my expectations.

If you are looking for save the date cards, invitations or wedding programs check out the By Invitation Only shop online. I am sure you will not be disappointed!
