Our wedding was magical. I laughed. I cried. I felt butterflies. I smiled so much my cheeks hurt.
I tried my hardest to take people’s advice – to soak it all in, because they kept telling me “it all just flies by.” You know what? They were 100% right. It still feels so surreal; I know I was there…it all happened…but it still feels like a dream. A wonderful, magical, glittery dream. (Yep. Glittery.)

My wedding was a dream! Everything turned out beautiful! The weather, the ceremony, the decorations I worked countless hours on! Yet, It flew by so fast, my head is still spinning. It is so true that you do all this work for one day that goes by so quick, and you pretty much are throwing a party for everyone else. Thankfully we have pictures from family to hold us over and drool at while we await our professional pics to be sent to us. Enjoy!!
I've been having a blast coming up with the bridal parties gift ideas.
I wanted something matchy, course my seafoam color and beachy vibe. It takes a lot of time, effort, and money to be part of a wedding and with these small gifts I wanted them to know just how much I appreciated them being a part of my big day.
I tried to do as much wedding-accessory-shopping on Etsy as possible, because I know that I’m supporting handmade / small business owners as well as getting items that were more likely made with fair labor than if they were mass-produced in factories overseas.
For me, one of the most fun parts of wedding planning was putting together these bridesmaids bags. I loved putting them together! I love gift giving in general, but these in particular had more meaning. I hope I showed my bridesmaids with these gifts just how much their standing up there with me on my wedding day meant to me.
