Breezy Chic Wedding Attire!

Light Color Palette

A summer wedding is a perfect opportunity to have fun with your color palette. Think of light blues and pinks when it comes to the bridesmaids’ dresses, as well as ties for the guys. Incorporate bright colors into your decor and have fun with your makeup, too! Sport a bright lip color with a soft, natural eye look to embrace the season.

Helpful Tips When Planning Your Big Day

With all the excitement that comes with planning your wedding, stress often follows. There are so many moving parts and it can become overwhelming if you don’t have a clear starting point. Below are some helpful tips of what to focus on
leading up to your big day.

Getting finances in order: As we all know, wedding expenses can add up! It is important that both the bride and groom discuss the financial aspects of planning for their wedding day. Sometimes existing debt can hinder couples from having
the wedding they truly desire. Luckily, there are resources available that can help. Here is a great article about how young couples can knock off some of their existing student loan debt more quickly. Additionally, if parents are contributing to the wedding budget – have a discussion about it first and foremost. These convos can be tricky, but if you do them early and are open and honest about it – they end up being a lot smoother than just never discussing it at all!

Chloe & Brian Winter Wedding in the OC

This is wedding is extra special to me! My adorable cousin, Chloe asked me to be her bridesmaid AND her wedding planner… don’t worry – I didn’t do it alone! I had my incredible Tasteful Team there running the show so I could be a bridesmaid ;-) I included some shots of me doing my bridesmaid thing, which you will probably never see on here again haha so soak it up!

Chloe and Brian have incredible style and such a unique taste, so we definitely wanted to incorporate their love of music and television throughout the day. I feel like the element that encapsulates this the most is through the photography. Photographers, Joe+Kathrina nailed it! The moody, feels like a band cover or a marketing campaign for the next Downton Abbey is TOTALLY them and I love it! Chloe goes into more detail about this later on in the post where she gives advice to brides who are in the planning stages of their wedding.
