Favor Idea #4

I discovered a new cupcake shop in Spartanburg last week and I'm now looking into mini cupcakes as wedding favor. So now it’s between either the vintage candy, the eco-chic idea, petit fours and the cupcakes. Thoughts?

My sweet fiancé had a great surprise waiting on me after my lunch break yesterday - flowers! Only 18 weekends left.

If only I had time...

I saw this cute idea on Martha Stewart's website and thought it would be so neat to have monogrammed candles for the wedding.

Maybe I'll get a few free hours between now and May.

Southern Inspiration

I’ve discovered the greatest wedding website, Southern Weddings. Their magazine just came out this month and if you can find it in stores – consider yourself lucky. I love the photos of the gorgeous wedding of Nicole + Ayoub.

Favor Idea

After searching a few blogs last night, I came upon this great blog titled VintageGlam Weddings which is right up my alley.

If you’re into vintage or weddings…or both…then you should check it out.

I fell in love with this cute favor idea.

We're in print!

As a little old lady at church told me yesterday, “its official, you’re now in print!” Engagement announcement has officially been checked off the to-do list.

So when Lenny and I started to date (you know when the Earth began), the guest book was basically a white little book that people filled their names in. Nothing to extravagant…or crazy…but of course practical and it would sit on a shelf for years to come. In the last few years coffee table guestbook have become the popular way to capture all your guest comments.

While all of that is nice…I’m thinking something more creative for our wedding…like a baseball bat. What do you all think?

The Weather Channel

The Weather Channel has a wedding planning page? Who knew?!? I guess even the weather has a wedding angle.

I will say the page is pretty useful (did not realize that the sunset is at 8:35 p.m.) or that the average temperature is around 92 degrees which means that I should order more water.

Again – who knew?

Wedding List...

Google has become my friend over the last week. To be more specific – Google Documents which is where I now keep up with all of guests lists, budget, etc. It’s heaven sent.

If you haven’t used it yet – try it. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
