The Wedding Ring!

We decided to go look at wedding rings the other day... and came home with two rings! ;-) I love mine, it is a pave setting, vintage detail, and just really really sparkly! I am a happy girl.

Wedding Bloggers

When I first became engaged I immediately became addicted to ever Bridal magazine out there, Brides, TheKnot, Martha, Elegant Weddings, InStyle Weddings, just to name a few. I just love all the inspiration I can get! But, magazines are expensive! (hint: join your local free library!) Soon I started listening to Wedding podcasts at work... a great way to get work done and think Wedding without getting in trouble... then the Wedding Podcast Network (the BEST! podcast out there) introduced me to Wedding Blogs and I soon had about 40 different Wedding Blog sites bookmarked as my favorites that I would, and still do, tear through during my lunch break... trying to pick up as much information as my brain could possibly hold... I have so many favorite bloggers... the first is Jaime, from "It's a Jaime Thing", she was a huge inspiration to me... I also love "Wedding Chicks" for their unique vintage approach to Weddings. A couple more "She Walks in Beauty" and "The Bridal Bar"... seriously I could go on but I know I would bore the heck out of you... just start with these and you will soon find yourself lost in the Wedding Blog World...the inspiration from them is unbelieveable!

Rock On! 80's I Do's!

The 80's made everybody smile... the loud music, poufy spiked hair in a rainbow of colors, loud music; Gun's and Roses, Cindy Lauper, to Run DMC...just to name a few. The dress code was pretty diverse, stone washed jeans, jean jackets, leggings, in any color...well as long as it was bright... flourescent? Even better!! Before the girls would go out at night, they'd crimp their hair into a side pony tail, smother on the silver and purple eyeshadow (remember that Jazz makeup kit?) and hot pink lipstick. Oh, wouldn't it be so fun to have an 80's themed Wedding?! Just think, you could have blue crimped hair, wear your jellies, and give away slap bracelets as your favor!

Ranunculus, my new favorite flower. Okay, I know the name is tough to love or even pronounce, but the flowers sure aren't, just look at them! The name ranunculus, I just found out translates to "little frog" in Latin... probably because the flowers are generally grown near swampy water, like frogs. Everything else about the lush flowers speaks of it's romantic beauty. The billowy bouquet of tightly budded petals take my breath away.

Once cut, the ranunculus can last up to week, making it the perfect bridal bouquet piece, I know I'll have a lot. This is one frog I wouldn't mind kissing...

Designer Inspired

The high-end look...for a lot less dough! I came across this site, Fantasy Jewelery Box, that has gorgeous replica celebrity rings, fake engagement rings, earrings, bracelets, etc. They specialize in sterling silver and cubic zirconia... yes there is nothing like the real thing, but if you already spent too much money on your dress or aren't crazy about wearing something antique..this is a great idea if you can't fork out a million dollars...will anyone really know???

Best In Show

Are people that have their pup in their Wedding taking it to far? I think if you're having a backyard affair and your furry friend is well tamed... then why not? I was going to have my pug Bean in the Wedding but I get the frightening image of her seeing me in my gown and tearing it to shreds...wish I could though...these guys are pretty darn cute!

If any of these images belong to you please let me know so I can give you credit!
