For your bridesmaids...

I was looking around on The Knot for things to do for your bridesmaids when I stumbled across a really cute and heartfelt idea. This bride wrote messages for each bridesmaid on the bottom of their shoe. How sweet is that? My only piece of advice: make sure the shoe fits first!

Today's find

For all the DIY brides out there, or even a bridesmaid throwing a shower, how cute is this cake pan?

I can't even imagine how neat it would look to have a table full of these pretty cakes!

Make it yours for only $21.99 on Amazon. And for you Amazon Primers, like myself, it ships for free!

Picked your wedding music?

One of the hardest things for us when planning our wedding was selecting music and choosing a reading. The weddings we have attended in the last year, since we have been planning, I've remembered the music---and it has served as a nice reminder when the song plays on the radio. Each time I hear "Here comes the sun," I am reminded of the beautiful wedding of our close friends Josh and Allison. When "Dog Days" by Florence and the Machine comes on, I remember Alex and Dan walking down the aisle together with huge smiles on their faces. Music creates memories, and I wanted to have something special for us as well.

Here's what we ended up going with:
Processional: Ben Folds, Luckiest (we had this played live, instrumental with flute and was perfect!)
Recessional: If I Were a Carpenter, Johnny Cash and June Carter (We had this edited to cut out the first verse about making babies...we plan to, just didn't want that to be the first thing mentioned as we were announced as a married couple!)
First Dance: The Temptations, Earth Angel (This song was easy to dance to, and gave our crowd flashbacks of "Back to the Future")
Father/Daughter Dance: Neil Young, Here for You (my dad is a HUGE Neil Young fan and this song was perfect, as he wrote it for his own daughter)

Here are some resources to help you find wedding music. The link straight to music suggestions, no digging required:

Thursday, September 15, 2011 say the least!

Wow, I can't believe it...we're married! After 14 months of planning, plane trips from the west coast to the east coast and HOURS of crafting--it's done. I was shipping things to Maine as I completed them, and wondered how it would all end up coming together in the end. We arrived in Maine a week before the wedding to start getting things together. I can't thank my parents enough for all their hard work to make sure everything was perfect. And perfect it was!

This is one of my favorite photos from the day. It was taken just after we saw each other for the first time. <3

Stay tuned for more photos and details of our big day! A HUGE thank you to my great friend and wonderful photographer, Kimberly Potterf for capturing our Wicked Good Wedding.
