Fun Bingo-Themed Ideas for Your Bridal Shower

Your wedding is going to be one of the most beautiful experiences you’ll have in your life, but if there was anything more exciting for the bride than marrying the love of her life, it’s getting everything over and done with, according to Bustle contributor Amanda Chatel. It’s not just the big day itself that induces stress because it’s all the events that lead up to the ceremony that can also take a toll on you, starting with the bridal shower. As much as you feel everything must be extravagant, going for simplicity may just be what will deter you from a bridezilla transformation. And when it comes to planning your bridal shower, why not go for something less pretentious and something low-key and fun like a bingo theme? il_570xN.153335026                       Read More

7 Creative Ways To Wear Something Blue On Your Wedding

You’ve probably heard of the wedding day tradition where a bride is supposed to wear something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. According to The Knot, this tradition goes back to an old English rhyme about the four objects that will bring good luck to a bride on her wedding day. Something old represents continuity; something new brings optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes happiness; and something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity. The first three items should be pretty easy to incorporate. But it’s ‘something blue’ that might prove a challenge. Now I’m not the biggest fan of traditions, but I do think it’s fun to find a creative way to hide a hint of color in your all-white ensemble. I’ve been brainstorming a list of ‘something blue’ ideas for my own wedding day, so I thought I’d share them with everyone for today’s #WeddingWednesday post. Here are 7 creative ways to wear something blue on your wedding day… Read More

Happy Mardi Gras

Happy Mardi Gras 2016! Mardi Gras (French for Fat Tuesday) actually begins on Twelfth Night, January 6, and continues nonstop until the day before Ash Wednesday. The date of Mardi Gras ties to Easter and varies each year. I personally love this holiday because I’ve been celebrating it since high school in French class.  Every year the French students would have a huge celebration and bring traditional Mardi Gras food.  It was always something nice to look forward to.  Now that I’m older the real Mardi Gras partying can happen! 10991451_1019522454744462_1457440990267243395_n                       Here are some tips on having the best Mardi Gras experience in New Orleans or any major city having a celebration: Read More

Wedding Invitation Etiquette

After getting engaged, I couldn’t wait to begin planning my wedding. It has been such a fun and memorable experience so far, but I’ve also realized how much work it can be. I’ve always been a super organized person so I find it’s best to tackle one topic at a time. I thought that it was a great idea on every #WeddingWednesday to share tips and tricks that I have discovered while wedding planning this past year. Every week it will be a new topic. This week’s topic is invitations. When you’re selecting your wedding invitations, there’s a lot more to consider than just printing techniques and paper stocks. Just like every other step in the wedding planning process, there are rules of etiquette for how your invitations should be worded. There’s a lot to consider, but I tried to make things easy by breaking it down into bullet points. glitzy-crystal-evening-invitations                 Read More
