A few months back, I shared my first set of Engagement photos (here). Those photos were mostly for the save the dates, but I knew I wanted something a little more fun to put around at the wedding reception. As a HUGE Disney fanatic, I had this idea that loosely involved one of my favorite Disney/Pixar films, UP! I told my photographer/sister about it, we grabbed a bunch of balloons and decided to bring the idea to life. 

I could not be more thrilled with the way these photos turned out! I love that they are pretty simplistic (I wanted a VERY simple background) and the center focus is us. These photos will be displayed at our wedding reception (see below) THIS WEEKEND. 

Yes, that’s right…I am getting married August 1st! This will be my last post before becoming a Mrs. so I thought it only fitting to leave you with these! 

PS Sorry for the photo overload! They are just too good not to share! Check out more of my sister’s work at www.haleychristine.com.

A few weekends ago, my sweet bridesmaids threw me the cutest bridal shower, themed after one of my favorite songs, Pineapple Princess. We didn’t get many photos, but I had to share the few we did as the theme was adorable. We had an enormous spread of brunch foods (bagels, pastries, fruit…) and enjoyed mimosas and infused water. The crafty girls that they are, they got there craft on with some adorable tassel pieces that I am also planning on hanging at the wedding for photo ops! 

 My crafty besties. These girls sure know how to get their craft on! 

 My little sister and I will do just about anything for a good picture. 

 My sweet sisters! Thanks for taking the photos Haley!

There is nothing better than a little floral romper! This particular number comes from Anjouil’s Boutique, and it might just be the cutest romper ever. I am obsessed with the layered top, which makes this romper look like it is a two piece set. It’s comfortable and cute and I could wear it just about anywhere! It has been my go to throw on piece for wedding errands lately as it is easy to put on and style but still adorable! This is my first piece from Anjouil’s, but I already know it won’t be my last! They have SO many cute pieces! I find myself wanting literally everything on the site…you know you are in trouble when that happens!

I think one of the best parts about being a bride is having the excuse to wear white literally all the time! I have a good stash of white dresses in my closet (see a few below), but I have definitely spent hours scouring the internet for the perfect white dresses and white separates to add to my closet for any necessary bride to be outings and occasions! I have rounded up some of my favorite styles and pieces ( a few of which I own…or wish I owned!) for you, whether you are looking for something to wear to a rehearsal dinner or shower or just something white to wear on any day so people know you’re a bride! Just click the picture below of the item you love to shop it!

 Exposed Shoulder

Anybody else obsessing over the cold shoulder or off the shoulder trend? It’s been one of my favorite trends to wear this summer, so of course it would extend to my little white dress collection! 

  Detailed

Whether you are going for lace, crochet or cut outs, sometimes a little white dress with details is all you need to make a statement! 

  Printed

A printed white dress can be a fun option. Stripes, florals, polka dots…so many choices!

The first thing I did when I got engaged?? Headed over to pinterest and started pinning my little heart out! I was overwhelmed as I sifted through pin after pin of the big details (venues) to every small inch (how to arrange utensils). I would see something, and think “OMG! I HAVE to do that!” but 5 minutes later find a pin of the same thing, but arranged or styled differently and automatically change my mind! 

Don’t get me wrong, Pinterest is one of the greatest things ever created! I came across so many cute details to include in my wedding that I would have never thought up were it not for Pinterest. However, Pinterest can have a dark side. My mind was going a million different ways with all of the different options that it was stressing me out! I had to remind myself to take a step back and reevaluate.

  If I had to give you any advice, when it comes to Pinterest remember that it’s your day! Pin your heart out and go crazy with pinspiration, but remember that your wedding is ultimately a day of sharing you and your future hubby’s love. People are not going to care if you pin-inspired craft doesn’t turn out exactly like the pin on your pin board! It’s a reflection of you and your special person’s love and THAT will be ultimately what they take away and remember! 

With that being said, check out a few of my favorite pins that (loosely) inspired my wedding! And no, I still haven’t perfected my perfect chalkboard writing for my signs…but hey, that’s okay!
