13 Years and Counting!

Today is my 13th (!!!!!!) anniversary with Andrew. I cannot believe we’ve been together now over 15 years, but also can’t recall life before him ( well I can, but I’d rather not). So a little revisit to our wedding feels appropriate, as it always does. I am so glad that still, 13 years later, our special day looks classic.  There aren’t any glaringly obvious “trends” or choices that make me cringe at all, which is shocking — and makes me very happy.

A Royal Wedding Review

I am honestly depressed the royal wedding is over.  I was delighted out of my mind on Saturday morning watching it and thought it was the best royal wedding ever. Not only for it’s beauty but for the more relaxed (for royals) vibe it had as well as a serious feeling of true love. Like, Harry is HEAD OVER HEELS, it’s so obvious. She was cool as a cucumber, and he was a fidgety, teary mess! It was adorable!

Ok, so down to brass tacks– the church and flowers were AMAZING. Absolutely perfect, loose, garden-inspired and exactly what I was thinking they would do.

The Royal Wedding: Last Minute Thoughts & What I’d Wear!

It’s HERE!!!!! Tomorrow morning I’ll be up bright and early to watch the event of the year.  Of course, I had to post today about my final fashion guesses about the dress, hair, etc. but also had some fun dreaming up looks for guests (ahem, MYSELF). So here we go!!!

THE DRESS DESIGNER:  BURBERRY

I think it’s going to be Burberry– no label is more British and yet also offers goods to the masses. Megan wants to be the new “People’s Princess” and this choice would be brilliant.

A Royal Wedding Party!

As I’ve mentioned before, when I guessed what Meghan Markle’s dress would look like,  I am pretty jazzed about this royal wedding situation.  A few details have been released, which is making me even MORE excited, because it seems the royal couple are after a slightly more relaxed, English garden kind of look for their big day versus the big to-do that was the Kate and William celebration.

The florist for the wedding will be Philippa Craddock, whose work is amazing.  I love the looser, organic feel of many of her arrangements.

A Jaw Dropping Fall Wedding

I will admit, this bride has been a blog reader in the past (not sure if she still is now) and we’re friends on Facebook because of that. And when I clicked on a link to her wedding she posted this week I was bowled over. Like, yelled out loud “holy sh*t!” as I scrolled through the pictures by Jose Villa on Martha Stewart Weddings.  Talk about the most dreamy, fall wedding there ever was. As a wannabe/frustrated wedding planner (I considered the career for about a minute after getting married) I love inspecting all the details that go into events like this.   They relate greatly to interiors too– see the end of my post for a holiday tablescape based on this wedding!
