Hi there I’m taking a blog vacation for the summer. I have so enjoyed writing about weddings for the last few months and I’m looking forward to being back in a few months. I’ll be taking the summer to prioritize my health and take a step back from all of the chaos around me. And […]
I have been binging like CRAZY on the show “Say Yes to the Dress” recently. Since a new season is back, they are also airing past episodes. I have literally been watching at least 5 episodes every weekend. Some, I missed so they are new to me, and others…I am watching again! Even if I remember the bride and WHAT DRESS SHE CHOSE! It has honestly made me very happy, though.
Throughout my wedding planning and leading up to the big day, I got a TON of advice. (See my last blog for more on that.) Some of it was very good, and some of it was…not so good. But the two pieces of advice that I cherish the most are tips that I was given in toasts on the weekend of my wedding.

My husband and I recently celebrated our two year wedding anniversary! It has been such a special time for the both of us and I am so thankful to have him as my life partner. It seems odd to me, sometimes, though, that even after two years I still have such a deep passion for […]
The best part about a destination wedding is that you will likely have a whole weekend with your guests, instead of for a few hours. With most destination weddings, the guests pay their own airfare and hotel rooms. This means they are truly investing in this experience and going a further distance (both financially and […]
Last week I shared the fact that my husband and I chose to do a destination wedding and it was literally the best decision we have ever made. But it wasn’t perfect (of course) and it is important to keep a few things in mind when selecting this unique path. There are some downsides that […]
One of the most unique things about my wedding was that it was a destination wedding on a Caribbean island. We chose a place my husband-to-be and I had never been to so it was a brand new experience for us. It was magical and I would have never decided to do it at home knowing what I know now.
It sounds kind of funny, but it can be easy to forget about planning your MARRIAGE because you’re so wrapped up in planning your WEDDING.
