darling wedding

I am totally stealing these two ideas from Whitney of Darling Dexter. Hopefully she won't mind. I have been thinking about having multiple cakes for a long time. C and I are total dessert people, so I want to offer as many options as possible (ok, and also maybe save a little bit of money). The timeline in the programs is a totally rad idea. C and I have been together for what seems like forever, and it has been quite the journey. I think it would be neat to share a little of that history with our guests.

More wedding inspiration. Love the colors. I may begin posting random bits of wedding beauty in the form of just pictures. Please bear with me.

cotton valley

Oh how I dearly love the look of cotton bowls. This will most definitely need to be incorporated into our wedding. I love the old timey, grainy vibe of these photos. The vintage glassware is stunning as well. Perfection.

inspiring wedding

Holy lot of gorgeousness! This Dallas wedding looks like a dream. And her gown, oh my. This couple had the reception at the Nasher Sculpture Center. In another world, with another budget, this would be ideal.

wedding colors pt.2

Kathryn hit the nail square on the head with this one. Almost exactly what I have in mind. Pink and gold and sepia and ivory and peach. Add in a little kraft paper and champagne and we are all set.

gorgeous gowns no. 1

These Amsale gowns are so over-the-top gorgeous. White cotton candy fluffs of dresses. Pure romance. 

My lovelies-any tips for choosing a bridal gown? I am having complete shopping ADD when it comes to the wedding gown. Every style I see is more beautiful than the next. How do I choose just one?

well hello there

Three cheers for the first day of fall! If I can look one ounce as chic as Keri does above, it will be a great season. Plus, PLUS!, I will be wedding planning. And honeymoon planning. And marriage planning. And life planning. It is sure to be grand.

Keri via coco+kelley. Come to think of it, I have this issue of InStyle. I should pull it out for more inspiration.

sneak peek

I got engaged! My amazing fiance :) asked me to marry him on Sat. God is so gracious to have blessed me with such a wonderful man with such a huge heart. I am thrilled to start planning our new life together!

Please indulge me as I begin blogging bridal pretties. We are hoping to host our wedding in the Spring, and I will need all the inspiration I can get. Will you please lend me a hand by offering your opinions and any advice? I would truly appreciate it. You guys are the best!

P.S. The (slightly blurry) phone snapshot of my ring above is just a preview. Many more pics from the engagement party to come.

labor away for an extra day of rest

Just a quick note to wish you a happy and rest-filled long weekend. We are taking a little trip to wooded East Texas for a bit of a retreat. Should be bliss. Hope yours is a doozy!

so very lovely

Here I go again with my love of lace. So pretty. Plus there is something a little bit ballerina about it, no? Even better.
