Woah, it has been crazy with all the wedding planning that has been going on around here! Kyle and I have been very productive these last couple months. We have the reception hall, photographer and honeymoon all booked!!! As for the Honeymoon we are headed somewhere warm with beaches and waterfalls–Can you guess the location (Hint: it’s the birthplace of Bob Marley)?? Not to mention we have accomplished many other little details. This month we are taking our engagement photos and I can’t wait to share them with you. So make sure to keep reading!
Enough about me… I wanted to share with you another E-Magazine that I came across. For those who are engaged, planning a wedding or just like to dream weddings–this e-magazine is perfect! Below are some shots the seventh issue of Nonpareil. The magazine, as always, is chalk full of beautiful details and concepts from other select bloggers.
For those who are just tuning in I have posted about other E-Magazines such as: Rue, Flourish, and much more!!!
Now that I have wedding on the mind I have been on the look out for creative centerpieces, wedding decorations and basically anything wedding! I spotted these DIY moss pictures frames, on Ruffled Blog, and thought they would be perfect for a June/July wedding. Here is a little update on our part: we really want to get married this summer, but with finances it might not be till the fall. Little by little we are saving up and focusing on the positive. For those who have done the “wedding” thing before… you know what I’m talking about (weddings are expensive)!!
What you’ll need:
– An old wooden frame (you could even try to make on yourself if your good like that ;)
– Bag of dried sheet moss from a craft store
– Hot glue gun
Inspired by the beautiful northwest this moss frame is perfect for any garden or rustic wedding. It also happens to be very simple. First you take an old wooden frame and clean off the surface that you will be gluing your moss to with a wet sponge. Next remove your moss from it’s plastic and begin laying it out over the surfaces of your frame. Use your scissors to cut your moss into strips that fit perfectly together. Once you have the moss laid out how you want it begin hot gluing it into place. Once you have finished gluing the moss into place you can trim around the edges with your scissors to make a nice clean line. You might also want to take any extra small pieces of moss and fill in any holes. This project is fun and easy and only takes about 15 minutes.
I would have to say in most things I’m pretty traditional. Especially when it comes to weddings and the customs that have been practiced over many generations. I do in fact like to twist things around… I mean I’m not stickler to tradition, because at times I do have my own ways and ideas of doing things. China is, traditionally, the centerpiece of any wedding registry. The term “China” is used to describe dinnerware and dishes. Some different types of china include bone china, porcelain, stoneware, and earthenware. Bone china is the best china and along with porcelain, is considered fine china. Stoneware and earthenware are examples of casual china.
INTRODUCING: The Lenox Chirp Collection, from Macy’s. Ooooh how I LOVE it more and more each time I look at it. This is the China that I want (unless something else sweeps me off my feet). There are many pros to registering for elegant tableware… it is uniquely your style, it can add a great touch to a home as home decor, and it’s a big investment which makes it more valuable to you. It’s crazy to think that just the small mug in this set costs $36! Being that this collection is bone china it is guaranteed to be chip-resistant, with a life time breakage warranty (Crazy huh!?)… it becomes something I can keep forever, maybe pass along to my children one day.
If this is your season for buying China, there is an article on the Knot that gives good advice for registering for formal china and everyday dishes. Oh and don’t worry I don’t hear any wedding bells soon, it’s just nice to dream a little.
SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?
