"Rent The Runway" // perfect for bridesmaids

posted on: Monday, June 9, 2014

There's a lot of thought that goes into bridesmaid dresses.  And it can take up some serious mental real estate during the planning process.  You want to make all of your gals happy; don't want them to pay too much and of course want them to feel/look good on the day as well!  If I were getting married today (to the same guy!) I would really consider Renting the Runway which lets you rent designer gowns for a fraction of the price.   In fact, I'd go with this dress in particular - combining my love for metallics and the softest shade of turquoise.   It's genius!  Just pick the dress, they send you two sizes, and after the wedding it zips back to their warehouse in New York.  Below are my favorite picks for weddings!


  

Invisalign® - pin it to win it

posted on: Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Let's chat teeth, shall we?  I have had braces twice.  My parents could be summering in France for the amount they forked over for my teeth... twice.   The first time was during second grade, which was actually OK because if there is ever a cool time to have braces - it is second grade.  I wore those metal contraptions with pride!  Then because I have such awesome teeth genes (this is completely and utterly sarcastic) those braces came back on during all of middle school when awkwardness was at an all time high for me (for everyone, maybe?!).  I definitely didn't get my first kiss until long after they were off.  And now here I am, thirty, with a snaggle tooth, begging for Invisalign®.  Dropping hints at my husband like it is hot.  All because I was twenty and irresponsible and didn't wear my retainer.  JB thinks I'm being dramatic about my snaggle tooth but whatever (I'm not!), and the request for Invisalign will continue until he agrees that the snaggle tooth has gotten out of control I annoy him until he can't take it any longer.

The obsession all started with seeing what Invisalign did for my best friend.  And ever since then Invisalign Aligners have been on my Christmas list slash list of needs.   What's amazing is she didn't even take them off for her wedding!  We all insisted that it made her teeth look whiter, and one of our friends exclaimed "it makes you have a sexy pouty lip".  So while she could have had them off for her wedding, they stayed on!  And no one but us bridesmaids even knew!  Proof is in the pudding y'all, there she is - wearing her Invisalign - looking like thee most stunning bride that ever existed.  period.  did I mention, she's wearing her Invisalign (!!!).  check out the whole wedding right here.

Featured: Style Me Pretty

Everything about this wedding was gorgeous and Katie Lopez captured it to perfection.  You know by now how much of an honor it was to plan with Ali & Ryan every step of the way - they have become such treasures to me!  I am so grateful they picked me and thankful to call them friends!
We are just thrilled to be featured on Style Me Pretty!  But I wanted to share with you what might be my favorite photo of the day.  That's Ali's mom, dad, and abuela.  Their cheeks probably hurt from smiling so much.  
 And that, friends, is what weddings are all about.  
You know I love pretty, but marriage and family always win for me.  every time.

what i would have done; registry

posted on: Friday, November 22, 2013

as you probably know, JB and I got married and promptly left for Switzerland the next month.  We had a gorgeous big wedding- and that meant our registry was bought out and then some.  Being one of the first of my friends to get married, I really didn't know what to register for!  Especially since we were moving and most ended up hanging out in boxes for two years.  lonely gifts I tell ya.  We'd probably been better off doing a honeymoon registry, but darn it if I don't love my cuisianart!  I guess what I would say is both JB and I went a little trigger happy with that registry gun they gave us.  Back in the dark ages (seriously, four years ago planning was a total different ball game) you could only register at the big ones - pottery barn, bed bath & beyond, williams sonoma...   Then I had a baby (just last year) and I made one of those new fangled registries from  Myregistry.com!  What's awesome about Myregistry and sites like it is you can still register for PB, W&S, etc... but also get things from ANTHROPOLOGIE ... pretty things that turn into heirlooms.  Because I don't know about you but I haven't ever met a thing from Anthro home I didn't like love.  Not to mention you can pile in things from Amazon, West Elm, walmart, BHLDN, kate spade, target.  you get it, anywhere.  Here's some heirloom items that would make their way to my registry if we were getting hitched 2014 instead of 2010 (:


what about y'all?  what are you doing? will do? would you change what you did way back when?  

True Life: I'm a hanger snob

posted on: Thursday, August 22, 2013

true story:  i'm a hanger snob.  You spend an arm and a leg on your wedding dress, only to hang it up on a boring old hanger.  A stylists nightmare!  
Huge tip for anyone planning their own wedding - get a beautiful hanger, or at least have a plain wooden one.  Below are STE approved hangers!
