Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring

ImageImage

It may technically be Spring, but the weather does not know it (some days). It takes me FOR-EV-ER to decide what to wear when the temperature outside is not warm but not cold. It’s at that awkward in between feeling where you are fanning yourself one minute and shivering the next. To help you decide what to wear on those days, listen to Nanette Lepore’s advice from the launching of The Collective at Bloomingdale’s New York. “Put on your pretty frilly dresses and work it out with the tights, and throw on the big sweater. Just start layering up into the looks that you want to eventually get into. I think you just want to start feeling , even if the weather isn’t cooperating. It’s gonna have to happen sooner or later, so you gotta just push it.” Don’t be afraid of fashion fusion! Now, bring on the warm weather so I can get ready faster!

 

Invitations sent….can’t back out now!

The time has finally come! We sent out our wedding invitations! After months of searching the internet for the right invitation, I found the perfect one on Invitations by Dawn. I wanted something simple yet eye-catching. Of course, I found some amazing ones, but I didn’t want the invites to outshine everything else. With my colors being seafoam, white, and peach, it also made it difficult to find invites with the exact colors. That is why I opted for a white one. The sparkle on the front is perfect and compliments all the chandelier pieces we are using in the decorations. Invitations by Dawn has a very thorough ordering process, making sure they cover every detail. They even emailed me regarding major details just to make sure everything would be perfect! As a bride, you come to appreciate people who are as detail-oriented as you are for this event. They had tons of fonts to choose from and verses galore. Pretty much everything is customizable, and they respond quickly to any inquiries. I must say one of my favorite add-ons was the option to have them address all the envelopes for you! Talk about a time/muscle saver! They shipped quickly, and all that was left to do was stuff the envelopes, stamp them, and mail. I would use them again for any event that needed bulk invitations or invitations that I couldn’t create on my own computer. If you have time, peruse their website!
