The Time of the Season for Family

I love Thanksgiving and the whole holiday season because of the time you get to spend with your family! Which reminds me of how important it is to be sure to get those group family shots of the wedding. It's those photos that are going to be around forever!!! Like these!!!

Did I tell you we picked a dress!?

Yes we picked a bridesmaid dress! It met all the requirements... pretty from the back, came in the right color and was under $200! We picked Watters style 9250 in FRAPPACINO!!! mmmmm these dresses are so sweet you will want to drink them up! I love the buttons trailing down the back and the slight train!

That means the wedding party (at least the girls) will have a look similar to this!

Save the Dates!!

The wedding is coming we both can't wait, so please don't forget to save the date!

Yes, that is the cheesy line we had inside our save the dates. Here is also a picture of the save the dates we sent to our friends and family. The picture is a magnet and my fiance even helped make them by punching the decorative corners. I'm such a lucky girl!

When life is changing there is a soundtrack...

In all my major life changes (which I'm only 26 so there haven't been too many) I have attend an amazing concert of classic beautiful music that touches the soul and changes it forever. Before graduating from high school my parents took me to see Andre Bocelli. It was the most touching concert I have ever been to in my life and I will never forget it. When college graduation was around the corner my mom and I went to see Sarah Brightman. I love her music and here I was again at a concert that brought tears to my eyes and changed my outlook on life... that it is beautiful, and amazing and something to be cherished. Last night I saw Sarah Brightman again with my family. The wedding is around the corner and as I sat between my mom and dad I felt so fortunate to be there and to here such beautiful music with them. I actually got chill pumbs listening to her sing the Phantom of the Opera and cried when she sang Time to Say Good Bye. A song that I realized on my way home last night was sung at every one of the concerts I have mentioned. Like a sign from God saying its time to say good bye to the past and look ahead to the beautiful future, my special song on my soundtrack of life. I hope this song will maybe touch you... I plan on having it played on my exit from the reception (since I can't afford to have a firework display to it)

Urban Chic Wedding

I can find inspiration anywhere. Honestly!! While shopping with my SUPER BRIDESMAID Jamie, we ran into Urban Outfitters. I love the store for all its vintage and unique pieces. I didn't buy anything because I'm on a wedding/Christmas budget; but boy did I see lots of things I loved. Browsing everything in the store sparked an inspiration of a wedding where almost everything came from Urban Outfitters. I know sounds crazy, but I bet there is a girl out there that could totally rock this look. It would work great in a vintage or low key ceremony reception site for a small wedding.
Yes, the head piece has feathers and includes a netted veil. I love all the jewelry and I actually tried on a pretty ivory embroidered dress that would be pretty for a simple spring wedding. I thought the LOVE frame would be cute for table numbers and the clutches... they are just adorable. You can also get great beauty products at Urban Outfitters, which are great for bridesmaid's gifts!

Where's Waldo (scratch that) Where's Lula?

Hi Readers,
If there are any... I have been MIA pretty much all of September and October. Life got pretty crazy busy. I had LOTS going on at work and I had my Niece and Maid of Honor's Birthday (which was AWESOME); I also took a trip to Disney World and made my save the dates. So please forgive me!!!??? All the planning is done, except for a few details so I will spend the next few post catching you up and let you know what else is in store. I have to say I have missed blogging sooo much.

For Becca!!!

I wanted to pee my pants when my friend Becca told me her theme for her wedding. PEACOCKS!!! I just loved it. I love peacock feathers to begin with and I love that you can take the look of it modern with fun bright colors or classic with deep dark colors. It can even be rustic with a country flare... OOOH I can't wait to see what her wedding is going to look like i know it will be FABULOUS. Either way, here is an inspiration board with a few pictures I have been collecting.

Warm and Cozy

Last night for my fiance's Dad's Birthday I gave a gift that I know is perfect for this time of year and going into the holidays. William and Sonoma Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows. MMMMMM. This is by far the best hot chocolate ever. I think I may need go pick up a box for my fiance and I and my parents too! HOT CHOCOLATE FOR EVERYONE!!! However after eyeing the hot chocolate box all night I thought about how nice it would be for a winter wedding party favor. You wouldn't have to go out and get the expensive William and Sonoma brand but you could make your own signature mix or buy a high quality cost effective brand and package pretty for your guest to take home and enjoy. Of course you would need a hot chocolate bar at the wedding to match the favors. Your buffet could include chocolate dipped spoons and Cinnamon and peppermint sticks and the really good home made marshmallows. You can have sprinkles and whipped cream and Carmel. Mmmm now I'm sooo in the mood for some warm hot chocolate.
