ready, set, happily ever after!

{via the sweetest occasion}

days two, one, and zero proved too busy for blogging but i wanted to take a moment to say thanks to all who have been reading and commenting over the last year! this little blog will go to sleep for awhile but i promise to post links to pictures and the wedding video when it’s ready.

one! week!


i spent the morning of day eight with the wp’s and left our meeting feeling totally organized and like we are in the best possible shape for next saturday. i also chatted with the incredible holly who gave me the very best quote of the day:

she said to me, “miracles are happening.”

that is complete music to a bride’s ears and i instantly got 100 times more excited about our incredible florals (if that was even possible). to celebrate how confident i am with the vision and the capability of our incredible dream team to execute it, i ceremoniously took one last jaunt around the wedding blogs and (gasp!) unsubscribed to about 90% of them – i couldn’t let them all go. my google reader has shrunk significantly but, to be honest, i’m kind of sick of looking at other people’s weddings and reading to experience my OWN.

so a very happy weekend, all!! we are so excited to see and celebrate with you this time next week.

i had seen this pretty vintage birdcage in a once wed blog post back in june and fallen in love. i mean, the ribbon? little bird sitting on top? swoon. i saved the image for inspiration but never really thought much more of it. well one of the fiance’s assignments this week was to seek out the perfect birdcage to complete our reception decor and, lo and behold, he found the EXACT birdcage on ebay! we are now the proud owners of said ‘cage (along with 288 white candles and glass votives — steve’s project from last week — what can i say? the boy gets things done!) and i am just smitten with its loveliness and the helpfulness of one incredible guy.

thursday purseday?

i heard a rumor from angela at swatchbook weddings that today is the first of many thursday pursedays (pairs nicely with tuesday shoesday and wedding wednesday, i think!). in honor of such a momentous occasion, i thought i would share a sneak peek at one of my most favorite wedding day accessories, the j.crew crushed glitter minaudiere.

ostentatious? yes.
fun? you bet.
and glam? uh huh.

happy thursday purseday!

tuesday shoesday: m of h

tuesday shoesday is all the range among wedding bloggers so i thought i would take a note from the industry experts and put up a perfect pair all my own! these are the pretty pumps that will be donning the dancing feet of my lovely little sister, bean. we are loving the blush rosette, neutral color, and not-too-daunting heel.

inspiration #9

{at least he’s honest via the polka dot bride}

replace “my nintendo” with “the world cup” and we’re in business.**

i’ve cheerily slipped back into planning mode this week. upon my return from orlando i met with jamie and lisa for a fun decor discussion and i’m getting so excited about some of our ideas! we firmly settled on a color palette (finally! which is totally my scatter-brained fault), talked linens, glassware, seating chart display, and so much more. for a little taste of what’s been catching my eye, i’m keeping track of images and inspirations in a tumblog.

happy weekend to all and forca portugal!

**note: should you need steve for any reason over the next month, you might frequent any local sports bar and/or our couch where he will be glued to soccer’s biggest stage

the wedding blogs came calling!

i am beyond excited to tell you that i was recently asked to guest post on one of my favorite wedding blogs, swatchbook weddings! i linked up with sw’s amazing creator, angela, through twitter after she posted an awesome lip gloss on her blog. her request marks my very first guest post outside of the glossarie and eleventwentyseven and it could not be a a better opportunity to combine my two interests as a beauty-blogger-bride-to-be! so hop on over to angela’s pretty place in the bloggerverse to read my suggestions on big day beauty.
