I got hitched!

21 May

So I took a little hiatus from the blog to really focus on planning my own wedding, and boy can I tell you that it was incredibly stressful! It is nothing like planning an event for another happy couple, and I can personally tell you that I will not be doing a fancy vow renewal like all the celebs.

Back to the wedding…….

Me and the Hubs 😉 live in California, but come from Florida. So the entire wedding had to be planned from across the country. I attempted to hire a wedding planner to help with all of the details, but being a crazy for details I decided to plan the entire wedding myself. We decided to go with the shabby chic theme with colors of blush pink and steel grey. I wanted the atmosphere to be very intimate, and I wanted the ceremony to be the main focus of the day.

The planning process took a little over a year, but all in all the day came out to exactly what I wanted. What’s more exciting is that the wedding pictures are already back and I have the link to show you all 😀

DIY Cookie Favors

19 Aug

Today I found these cute cookie favors. They are very simple and extremely budget conscious. All you need is a great cookie recipe, paper stock, and ribbon or string. Make it personal with a little message attached and choosing colors that go with your wedding.

This would even be a cute idea if you had the bride and grooms favorite cookies, and in the inside have a little fact about the happy couple for your guest to read!
