The Ultimate Bridesmaid Checklist

This past month, we partnered with Personal Creations  to bring you guys the ultimate checklist for bridesmaids everywhere! Being a bridesmaid sometimes gets a bad rep. Ugly dresses, tons of responsibility, even more money, etc. I like to think of that as in the past though. Bridesmaid fashion is getting better and better. There is more freedom. More creativity. As for the responsibilities… I wouldn’t say there is more or less… but I think there are more resources out there to help a girl out! The problem is… there are so many resources out there, sometimes it’s hard to know what is actually a necessity and what isn’t. And it’s hard to just keep it all organized.

I Left My Heart In Thailand

This past November, I had to opportunity to go to Thailand with the hubs and our dear friends over at Joe+Kathrina. It was a little bit of a weird time to take a trip for us. Last year was a really hard year. But we went anyways, and I’m so glad we did. In the end, it turned out to be the perfect time to get away, share an adventure with friends, and cross some items off our bucket list. A time to reconnect. Just what we needed.

Dos and Don’ts for Addressing your Invites

How to address your wedding invitations is a question I get asked by literally every couple. Turns our people don’t really send snail mail anymore, so the art of addressing has since been forgotten by most. You may be thinking, “what’s the big deal? Just write their name and address.” And while you’re not entirely wrong, there are a few key details when addressing that can save you a bit of a headache down the line. Like did you know, that the way you address your invites implies how many people are actually invited? This is key when you start getting those RSVP’s that all of a sudden have a plus 1… that you were not expecting. Or better yet, those single guests you invited who just showed up with a plus 1 (and it was not indicated on the RSVP) .Those are my fav haha.

First things first, decide with your partner whether you want to address them formally or informally. This decision is made easier when you consider where you are getting married. If you’re getting married at a swanky hotel or winery in Napa… opt for the formal. If you’re getting married in a friends backyard in front of the barn, informal is the way to go for you. It’s the first clue to your guests what sort of wedding they are going to.

Secondly… BE CONSISTENT. If you address one formally, address the next formally. Or if you use Mr. as your prefix… use Mrs for the prefix as well. Don’t write Mr Barney and Robin Stinson. That just feels weird, right? Also, I love How I Met Your Mother. So, in general, these names just make me smile.

Romantic Vintage Wedding Inspiration

Awhile back, I got the incredible opportunity to style a photoshoot with a killer group of boss babe vendors. The theme was a modern take on Downton Abbey. This was a challenge for me, mostly because I boycotted the show immediately after (SPOILER ALERT) Matthew died. I was that pissed. All joking aside, it was so fun to jump back into the vintage world after being away for a bit.
