Beautiful Bridesmaids Gifts

October 21, 2010

I adore just about everything from Sarah Drake, and I when I was browsing through their site this week I was thinking how most of her work would make lovely bridesmaids or hostess gifts! If the ladies in your life love a monogram as much as I do (I even want to monogram a pumpkin this year) these coffee mugs and linen napkins would be the perfect way to say “thank you.” {Images from Sarah Drake, taken by Elizabeth Messina}


Hi-Fi Weddings Music Mix

August 18, 2010

Do you read Hi-Fi Weddings? Ashley writes all about the music side of weddings and everything in between. If you’re looking for the perfect play list for a certain portion of your day, I can guarantee she has some ideas already published on her blog! Ashley has such great style and of course, an amazing ear for music. So I am really excited to tell you that she put together a mix for all of you!

While you’re busy transforming into a bride, you’ll clearly be in need of some tunes to set the mood. So Ashley created a “Going to the Chapel” mix just for the occasion, that you can listen to below. Thanks, Ashley!

I remember looking for a cute robe to wear while I was getting ready the morning of the wedding (don’t forget that there will probably be some photographers in there with you!) so when the owner of Plum Pretty Sugar contacted me a few weeks ago, had to share her creations with you. Her robes, pajama shorts, pajama pants and even the jewelry pouches pictured above are all kind of whimsical without trying too hard. She even calls her store a “loungerie” which is so cute. Are you going to wear something cute while you’re getting ready for your wedding? Or just go with your normal casual wear?
