Ever since I saw these made to order to dresses by Amanda Archer on Etsy I've wanted to order one. Maybe because they remind me of my favorite JCrew dresses, and they come in every color imaginable so she won't suddenly take your favorite color out of the mix come Spring when you're ready to order for your bridesmaids. I'm not bitter.
Naturally I was tired after a few crepes. Not to mention I was making gluten free coconut flour crepes for the first time and they were a challenge (but delicious!). Luckily Lady M Confections can ship their cake anywhere in the world. I hope they still will in another 47.5 years!
A friend of mine from High School, Grace, was married last month. Her Husband built an amazing outdoor chapel for the ceremony, and when I saw the photos on Facebook I couldn't wait to show them to you. Luckily Grace has a blog where she shared some photos and the process and said I could link back. Check out her blog, Oh Gracie Pie, for more photos and a cute background story on just how she collected so many windows.
There are tons of Fall wedding favors out there right now. If I was guaranteed a crisp sunny day in the Pacific Northwest I would have had a Fall wedding in a heartbeat. Especially since my Husband wanted to come down the aisle in tractor...and he wanted to come down after me. I might have gone for that ;)
If we had, I most definitely would have had caramel apples. What about this cute burlap bag of apples with Grandma's apple pie recipe?
The other day I was perusing ModCloth and noticed how many cute bridesmaid appropriate dresses they had for under $100. Score!
When my Husband and I got engaged I had my heart set on these deep raspberry colored dresses from JCrew. Of course it was their summer collection and I hadn't asked anyone to be a bridesmaid until the winter. What happened to my raspberry dresses? Gone, and on to the winter collection. By the time I was ready to purchase, flamingo pink was as close as I could get.
The moral of the story is. If you're getting married in the Fall and you want to find dresses off the rack in those rich Fall colors...you should be looking right now. Not in March when the Spring colors are in full bloom.
Check these out. I'm in love with more than one of them...
Married three years ago, I've failed to move on to the next stage of my life. Children? 401K? I'd rather join the congo line on your big day. I love all things weddings and parties and hope to make a life of it someday.
In my spare time I like to hike, go to the beach and discover new restaurants. I live in the Seattle area with my Husband, two crazy dogs and my wedding dress ;)
