Sew Engaged: Wedding Mood Boards


Hello friends! I'm back with another Wedding Wednesday. Today I am sharing some major wedding inspiration. Since becoming engaged I have been trying to nail down my wedding vision. I find the best way to do this is to create mood boards! I do this through Photoshop but you could also create them on Canva or another free program. As I work through the planning process I find it helpful to pull together my favorite images or pictures from potential venues to see how it can all come together. Most of these images I have gathered from Pinterest. Pair Pinterest pictures with pictures from venues to see if your vibe matches your favorite venues! 

I also find it helpful to try multiple venues with your favorite pictures! Just to see what looks good where. This also helped us narrow down a venue. Some of my inspiration just looked better in some venues vs. others. Not to say you can't pick a venue then change your vision, but this is just what worked for me. 

In this post you can see three of my earlier mood boards! Now they have kind of evolved as we booked our venue, I am narrowing down on dresses, and I have talked to some floral designers. It is interesting to see how it continues to evolves as I move through the planning process. I have always been stuck on a few key elements like a pink and navy color palette, peonies, and Hayley Paige gowns. 

As I work through more planning I will share a final mood board most likely! But wanted to share some early concepts that I came up with. Let me know any additional wedding content you'd like to see below.

Sew Engaged: Little White Dress


Winter white or wedding white? You decide! To be honest I am not a big white person. After having to wear countless white outfits during my sorority days I just disliked white. But, now as a future bride I am warming up to the idea of wearing white ensembles again. 

This Loveshackfancy x Target dress ended up being a great purchase because I will probably wear it a ton for engagement or wedding events. It was super affordable too! But I will link similar options below if you are looking for something similar. Naturally I will do a white dress round up soon as well! I paired the white dress with this gorgeous white mixed crystal headband from Lele Sadoughi. This headband is the perfect bridal headband in my opinion. It really sparkles and can complete any white ensemble. To tie the iridescent theme together I carried this super cute bow pouch as a clutch from the Stoney Clover Lane x Hello Kitty collection. 

Where it's from: 
Dress: Target x Loveshackfancy (old) (similar
Sandals: Jack Rogers 
Headband: Lele Sadoughi 
Location: Naples, FL

Do you love wearing white? Or are you like me and resist? Let me know in the comments!

Sew Cute Holiday: Christmas Round-Up

 Merry Christmas Eve friends! Today I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas. This month flew by. I had all of these plans for cute holiday content and the month escaped me. I guess that is what happens when you get engaged, go on vacation, and have a busy work month. Oh well! There is always next year. However, today I wanted to round-up some of my holiday looks and posts and link everything. I love picking up holiday items on sale at the end of the season. So, you never know you may be able to score a good deal on some of these items for next year! 

Did the holidays fly by for you too? Let me know your holiday feelings below!

I'm Engaged!

Hi friends! Some exciting news here..... I am engaged! If you don't already follow me on Instagram this  is big news. But, I got engaged while on vacation in Florida with my fiance. It is still weird to say that! But, it happened and I am so excited. I can't imagine being with anyone else forever. Here are a few snapshots from the engagement! 

So, this will be the first post to kick off a ton of wedding content! But, had to give you a little context before I started posting all about weddings randomly. Yesterday I went dress shopping for the first time and I think I found my dress. We are touring one of my favorite venues next week so things are starting to come together. I will for sure do a post on my wedding planning tips as I am planning to do everything myself. Except maybe a day of planner! But, we will see. In other news Happy Christmas Eve Eve!
