I have a serious affinity for pleats, and I don’t see that changing any time soon! This mauve pleated romper sold out super quick (no surprise), but luckily I found it still available at one retailer! God is on our side today! Haha! I love mauve and plum hues for fall! I refuse to give up color even when temps start to drop! I recently got this gorgeous neutral Julia Kays bag and now I’m on the hunt for the perfect pale gray pumps! Well, maybe after the wedding…I still haven’t found Dylan’s wedding gift so I should work on that first! Lol!
I want to share so much about this weekend’s bridal showers, but I will wait until tomorrow’s Wedding Wednesday post, so be sure to check back in the AM! 🙂
I’ve been such a maxi girl for as long as I can remember. I’m not a huge fan of my muscular soccer legs I acquired from 13 years of soccer growing up, and I have this idea in my head that maybe maxis somehow make me look taller! Lol! I need all the help I can get! This open back maxi is one of my favorites in my closet right now! It’s so flattering and the open back detailing is to die for! I was a super excited when I saw it was marked down to $50…but then this week I saw that Goodnight Macaroon is having a 30% off sitewide saleINCLUDING sale, and I was like “Hallelujah, Praise Jesus!” This maxi is only a whoppin’ $34 with the sale (code: EVERYDAY), so it’s definitely the time to grab it! It also comes in several colors here, here, here and here! They also have tons of cute sweaters, scarves, etc on sale! I’ve added some of my favorites below!
I am in full honeymoon planning mode! I’m not quite ready for fall, so this honeymoon couldn’t be coming at a more perfect time! We are heading to Cozumel, Mexico the morning after our wedding for 7 days (ahhh!), so I’m currently going on a shopping rampage for all things vacation wear! I never realized how busy of a season fall is for tropical vacations until I started planning our trip…I guess I’m not the only one ready to let go of summer! This $27 maxi is definitely coming with me!
YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS! I’m back! Holy moly. These past 2 weeks have been an absolute hot mess. Long story short, I got locked out of my blog and have been going back and forth trying to get access again, and I FINALLY got it back this morning. As if I needed more stress on top of planning a wedding! Lol! Thank y’all so much for hanging in there with me during this break while I sorted this all out!
Now that I’ve been gone a hot minute, we are now only 32 days out! THIRTY-FREAKIN-TWO! Omg. I’m so excited and slightly panicking all at once. We got out vow books in last week (we are writing our own vows, because I enjoy making everything in life more difficult), and we got our guestbook in yesterday! I posted a video of it on Instagram Stories last night – I LOVE the way it turned out! I also had my final two fittings for my wedding dress and picked it up! I was actually supposed to have my bridals done tomorrow, but the weather is playing games, so we will probably have to reschedule it for next week! I can’t believe how close everything is getting! Ahhh!
I couldn’t wait to share my invitations until after the wedding, so ta-da! You get to see them early! Just please don’t try to crash my wedding. I wish I could invite all 150,000 of y’all, but the venue owner might actually murder me! Haha! But really.
I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted my invitations to look like, so I immediately started scouring Minted’s website for the perfect invitation for a black-tie wedding that would compliment a gold foil overlay and blush bow. I was shocked by how many options there were! Minted is the holy grail of wedding invitations…not even kidding! They have over 1200 options to fit any kind of wedding you may be having! This invitation guide is super helpful when adding all of the wedding details to your invitation…I was seriously so worried I would forget something! I also loved that Minted offered FREE envelope addressing, so I didn’t have to worry about hiring a calligraphy after the invitations were done! I didn’t realize how much work invitations actually are between gathering addresses, etc! It’s easy to get unorganized and stressed out, so this Wedding Guest List from WeddingWire will be a godsend when planning your wedding! It organizes your names, addresses, RSVP’s, gifts, etc …everything all in one place!
After our invitations came in, we backed them with blush cardstock (we got ours at Hobby Lobby, but you can also find cardstock at Michael’s or most other craft stores), embellished them withgold doilies, and finished them off with a blush bow to match our wedding colors. I love how they turned out! Invitations are the first impression that guests will have for what they can expect the wedding to be like, so I hope I was able to capture how elegant, romantic and luxe our big day will be!
I’ve been kind of loving all of the super bold colors lately! This one shoulder dress is another great option if you have any upcoming weddings to go to! It’s so flattering and under $100!
Tonight I am heading to North Austin to take dance lessons with daddy for the wedding! I already know mom is going to cry like a little baby during our father/daughter dance! I can’t believe it’s getting so close! I feel like there is still so much to do…it’s never ending! Ps. What are some of y’all’s favorite songs to dance to at weddings?! I’m trying to put together the list for the DJ and I just have no idea!
