A quick rant about chairs and chair covers

Why on earth do some brides insist on having chiavari chairs at their reception and then COVER them with a chair cover? I must say it's one of the biggest wastes of money. The chiavari is such an elegant chair...let it's beauty show! It's so clean...don't mess it up with a cover.

How they should be used:

Color palette nailed down…finally.

Thanks to good friends who encourage me to stay true to myself (the self that loves blues) and The Perfect Palette, I have decided my colors and can now move forth with stationery ideas and decor!

The main colors will be light aqua/glass and a coral/peach with splashes of tangerine and ivory…maybe a light yellow.

My 6 bridesmaids will wear the aqua and my maid of honor will wear peach or coral to compliment.

Here are my favorite inspiration boards from The Perfect Palette:

I said Yes! to the Dress!!

Thank you to Ana's Bridal in East Providence!!! Ana was wonderful and so helpful. The last dress I tried on was it! Close tie between it, and the first. But is it just so unique with lots of little details that just made it "the one" especially after trying on a veil with it.

No pictures here...327 days until the unveiling :-)

Just a little random fact...we got engaged on the 7th and I bought my dress on the 7th...our original wedding date was supposed to be the 7th...haha 2 out of 3 isn't bad. :-)

Amazing cookout!

Feeling so thankful! The cookout with Dan's family was awesome yesterday and everyone got along famously :-) Couldn't wipe the smile off my face. A few times, I stood back, looked around, and took it all in...practicing for the big day :-)

Off to enjoy the pool and another cookout!
