We’re Getting Married! All About Our Plans + What I’ve Been Buying

Way back at the beginning of the year when I announced that we’re getting married, we had these grand plans for a backyard wedding and a cool brunch reception. Fast forward seven months or so and all of our plans have changed approximately twelve or thirteen times. Now we’re just a little over a week out from making it official over here (!!!) and I wanted to pause and fill you in our plans, how they’ve changed and share with you some of the things I’ve been buying to bring my vision to life on this whole shindig. Some elements haven’t changed at all! We’re still getting married in our backyard, the original color palette has stayed the same, etc. Beyond that we’ve shaken things up quite a bit. In fact, we’re not even having a traditional reception! There are no table numbers, no seating arrangements, no carved beef. We still aren’t really having an official wedding party, we never had bachelorette or bachelor parties and we opted for a casual backyard dinner party with some of our closest friends in lieu of any kind of shower. I am pretty sure we’re going to have one of the coolest weddings ever though, even if I do say so myself. Read on for the details!

What I love about this look is that it can go completely glam or just add a soft bit of shimmery sheen …

Party Palette: Classic Christmas

Somehow it’s December and my iTunes is officially playing Christmas music in high rotation. I’m thinking about things like baking cookies, buying presents and planning holiday festivities with family and friends. Today’s color palette is taking a page from the book of classic Christmas. Bright holly red, rich evergreen and touches of soft and woodsy …
