All jokes aside, a guest book is a crucial part of any wedding day and is not an element to be neglected.

Challenging Tradition and Loving It!

We love tradition, and you know we do or else we wouldn’t offer up wedding history blogs on the regular. But as much as we love tradition, we also love breaking it. A bride’s wedding party- now that’s traditional. Having a male in the bridal party- not so traditional…AND WE LOVE IT!

Don’t Be Afraid to Cover Up

It's spring, so we know you won't be wearing these gems for warmth. But as we like to say, a lady will do anything for fashion, and these cover ups are totally worth a little overheating.
