weekend




I just discovered Russell and Hazel has an awesome free printable wedding planning template. I find a lot of planning guides to be a little too basic for me or generally not useful, but I think this one it awesome and have already started using it myself!

21 Things you didn't know about Love Actually. One of my favorite movies! Perfect for a rainy day like today. 


Have you tried out Violet to brand your wedding?

Speaking of branding, have you checked out my series about ways to brand your wedding? See part 1, part 2 and part 3!

Every style chart you could ever need.

I have been better about cooking at home lately and have my eye on these new recipes to try

I have a three day weekend and since it's storming outside, I have big plans for a little TV, home organizing, a DIY manicure and maybe some wedding plans of my own :). Happy weekend friends!

So far in our How to Brand Your Wedding series, we've covered pre-wedding items such as invitations and ceremony items and now it's on to the reception, specifically dinner.
Escort cards:

Place cards if you're being extra fancy! How cool are these agate slabs?


Menus at each place setting are a perfect place to get creative:


Table numbers (easily visible and legible, please):


(I actually was an intern and helped with this wedding!)

And something special to personalize the bride and groom's chairs:

i'm engaged!!!


It's been awhile since I posted around here and I promise it's with good reason! I've had a busy summer with weddings at the hotel and then on Sunday the love of my life asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes!!! 

I'm debating how much of the wedding planning I'll share over here, but rest assured there will be more inspiration than usual in that department. I'm thinking of a venue feature series or more mood boards, plus a continuation of the How to Brand your Wedding series. Let me know what you want to see in the comments! xo
