Alfred Angelo Closed

Because my blog started as a journey of our wedding planning and many posts were wedding related, I felt the need to share the info that Alfred Angelo closed and has screwed over many brides. I could not imagine being in that situation! I Joined the Wedding Swip Swap Facebook page and there are so…

Facebook’s Wedding Swip Swap

I was talking with a friend and also a new Mrs. about selling our leftover wedding items. She mentioned a Facebook page that’s strictly for wedding items in Florida. I asked her to add me to the group and within a day my request to join the group was approved. I so wish I had…

Honeymoon: Coco Plum Island Resort Belize

I have been MIA lately because we have been in a tropical island paradise enjoying our honeymoon. We went to Coco Plum Island Resort; a private, adults-only, 18 cabana beautiful island about 9 miles off the coast of Dangriga, Belize. It was like being in heaven, or at least how I envision my heaven would…

The Final Countdown

We are officially into the week of our wedding! Only 3.5 more days! It’s crazy, exciting, busy and even a little sad that after 5 days we won’t have any more fun wedding planning stuff. I’m just so many emotions, but not nervous, never nervous. I’ve had a few people ask me that. This decision…

Gifts for the Mother of Bride & Groom

I love buying gifts and thinking of something special to give people. So when it came time to find gifts for those helping us with the wedding, I was excited! Etsy is my go to for unique gift ideas. And when I searched “mother of bride gifts” so many options popped up. I was ready…

Wedding Favors a Waste of Money?

Originally, we were going to do a candy bar with take home baggies that had our names and wedding date on them as kind of our wedding favor. But, when Ben’s mom said she wanted to do a Venetian Hour for desserts, we scrapped the candy bar idea. We looked around at possible favors only…

The Perfect Wedding Jewelry

I’m very much an in-the-moment kind of person when it comes to picking outfits and accessories. I never plan these out; it’s more of how I feel when I’m getting ready. So of course thinking about wedding jewelry I didn’t think I’d be able to find anything and feel 100% sure about it. But I…

Only 25 Days Left!

It’s almost a scary thought, but only because I feel like there are so many little things left to figure out. Another reason it’s scary is because I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with myself and my time after the wedding… I’m so used to shopping for wedding decor or crafting items…

Invitations Are Officially Out

We sent all of our invites a couple weeks ago¬†and have started receiving reply cards, although not as many as I’d like to see! We spent a lot of time on these and was so so so happy to have amazing contacts in my life to help make these for practically nothing! We originally started…

Nexgen Nail Trial

I finally started my nail/hand routine in hopes of having long, nice ones for the wedding. I tend to pick at my nails a lot and even gel manis would peel up or break off (mainly my fault). So after doing extensive research and reading hundreds of various reviews at local salons, I finally went…

Why Do You Judge Other People’s Weddings?

We just went to my friend’s wedding this past weekend and all I could think is “WOW! Our wedding is not going to be this fancy and elegant…” After thinking about that, it made me a bit sad because I personally think our wedding will be amazing!! But have you ever watch Four Weddings? I…

Signature Wedding Cocktail

We threw around the idea of a signature cocktail and I thought, “Why not make a purple drink to match our wedding color and call it Purple Haze since we both love Jimi Hendrix!” Of course Ben was totally on board. So we turned to our bartender to give some suggestions. We decided the easiest…
