Parisian Wedding Style

Madison’s sister is studying abroad in Paris right now (you remember Madison, right?  Her dream wedding is here, remember?), and just talking about her trip has sent us on our own little Parisian kick here at the office.  We’ve been serving macarons to our appointments, offering champagne on tours, and even giggling about the Bridesmaids … Continue reading Parisian Wedding Style

Marrying on the Half Hour Superstition

This afternoon a wedding booked for next January at a ceremony start time of 6:30pm.  I found it kind of odd, because 6pm or 7pm on the hour is typically more popular.  I mentioned it to Lela, who said she’d heard it was a superstition that it was good luck to get married on the … Continue reading Marrying on the Half Hour Superstition

Irish Wedding Bells

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I’ve got Irish wedding traditions on the brain.  There are evidently a ton of Irish wedding traditions, which is kind of unsurprising considering they’re known to be a superstitious people!  Ringing bells is one, considered to keep spirits away and to remind the couple of their vows. … Continue reading Irish Wedding Bells

Flower Grandmas

Last night I came across the buzzfeed article “31 Impossibly Fun Wedding Ideas.”  I scrolled through kind of skeptically, thinking they would be ideas that either I’d seen a million times, or would be incredibly impractical.  Number three caught my eye as sweet, charming, and very fun: “3.

A Moment In Time

On Sunday morning, I had an appointment with a bride who told me their engagement story.  A lover of all things Legend of Zelda, her fiance planned out a huge, elaborate game of her own, including maps and a wooden sword, and ending with a stunner of a past present future engagement ring!  It had … Continue reading A Moment In Time

To Stamp or Not to Stamp?

I remember when I was sending out my wedding invitations (almost 5 years ago!), I went to the post office to have the invitations hand stamped before they went on their merry way.  I did this for the very important reason: my mother told me to.  I patiently waited in line, then proudly presented my … Continue reading To Stamp or Not to Stamp?

Simple Discoveries

I was cleaning out a desk drawer at home the other day when I came across a receipt from my hairdresser.  Nothing out of the ordinary about that, right?  Then I saw the date: October 4th, 2008, and tears immediately came to my eyes!  It was the receipt for my wedding hair styling!  It was … Continue reading Simple Discoveries

Ornamental Love

I told Heather I wanted to do some DIY projects on the blog.  We ended up making some yummy Christmas ChexMex Mix, and then ate most of it and forgot to document any of it.  I don’t really mean recipes anyway, I mean more of crafty, Pinterest-inspired projects.  For example, I think it would be … Continue reading Ornamental Love
