Makeup Inspo
Caytlyn in Hair and Makeup, on October 2, 2019 at 7:04 PM

Show me your makeup inspiration! I have my trial tomorrow and still don’t know what I want. Part of me wants to go full glam because I only get to be a bride once, but the other part of me wants...

Caytlyn in Planning, on September 18, 2019 at 8:51 PM

We just dropped our invitations off at the post office and I wanted to share for those who are still shopping around. We went with the all in one invites from Minted and couldn’t be happier! We...

Battle of the Shapewear
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on September 13, 2019 at 1:09 PM

I’ve procrastinated shopping for shapewear until today...and my first alterations appointment is Monday. To say it’s been an adventure would be an understatement. I’m honestly surprised no one has...

Slips and petticoats and crinoline, oh my!
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on September 2, 2019 at 9:26 PM

Does anyone care to share photos of their dress with and without a petticoat? My first alterations appointment is coming up and I have no idea if I need one or not. This photo is the sample gown and...

i picked up my dress today!
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on August 26, 2019 at 5:22 PM

How is everyone storing their dress? Hanging up? Laying down? I’m worried about the pressure on the straps, although I’m sure it’s been hanging for weeks and it’s been fine. Here’s a picture of my...

Booking a seamstress before dress arrives
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on August 14, 2019 at 2:48 PM

So my dress is set to arrive in September for my November wedding. Obviously that’s already cutting it close for alterations so I don’t want to wait until it arrives to make appointments. Did anyone...

Lantern Centerpieces
Caytlyn in Style and Décor, on August 20, 2019 at 5:37 PM

I know I’m 10000% overthinking this. We are doing lantern centerpieces with a few votive candles similar to the photo below. We bought real votives, but I’m really paranoid about using real pillar...

Officially in the doubt digits and a little diy
Caytlyn in Planning, on August 15, 2019 at 3:44 PM

We’re 99 days out today and I’m stuck in a lull. I feel like everything that can be completed at this point, is. The rest of it can’t be done until closer to the wedding. I know that there’s nothing I...

Ring Resizing
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on August 8, 2019 at 6:21 PM

My engagement ring fits fine 9 months out of the year, but is super tight when my fingers swell in the summer. I tried my engagement ring on with my wedding band the other day. I had been inside in...

diy Brides
Caytlyn in Do It Yourself, on August 4, 2019 at 2:33 PM

I know there have been a million posts about Charming Charlie going out of business, but I wanted to give a heads up to some of you DIY or crafty brides. I’m planning to make personalized wood hangers...

Reception length
Caytlyn in Wedding Reception, on July 30, 2019 at 3:55 PM

We're 4(ish) months out and still undecided on the length of our reception. For context, our ceremony will begin at 4:30 pm and cocktail hour will be 5-6. Our dinner will be buffet style stations and...

Photographers and videographers
Caytlyn in Planning, on June 21, 2019 at 3:19 PM

For those who already got married, did you feel like you had an entire paparazzi following you the whole day? More specifically, the ceremony? We have two photographers and two videographers and I'm...

Special moment with mom on wedding day
Caytlyn in Wedding Reception, on July 5, 2019 at 4:10 PM

Has anyone found a way to have a special moment with their mom during their wedding? My stepdad didn't enter our lives until I was 19, so it was just her the entire time I was growing up. My stepdad...

Engagement photo sneak peak
Caytlyn in Parties and Events, on June 3, 2019 at 1:37 PM

We did our engagement pictures last weekend and got a preview today! We were disappointed because our original location was supposed to be a park with woods, a huge field, and a barn, but Mother...

Cathedral veil with lace
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on June 18, 2019 at 10:13 AM

I know this is oddly specific and I’m really overthinking it, but I can’t stop obsessing over it. For those who wore/are wearing a lace trimmed cathedral veil, did you go with lace just around the...

Engagement Photo Hair
Caytlyn in Hair and Makeup, on May 23, 2019 at 3:17 PM

So our engagement photos are this Sunday and it's supposed to be 90 degrees. I had planned to just wear my hair down with some romantic curls, but I don't think they (or I) will survive the heat. Did...
