Swagger Wagon

Alright, I swore it off. But now I officially want a mini-van. But please, don't jump to conclusions...no baby bump here! I simply love the Swagger Wagon Video. Someday, I want to roll to play dates in as much style as the Sienna family. 


Where my kids at?!?!?!

Vintage Thoughts From Our Southern Wedding

At work, we recently put together a blog post about the top wedding trends to look for in 2011. One of my favorites is the ever growing vintage trend. While I didn't officially know of this trend when planning my own wedding, I had been favoring a subtle vintage look at the time and incorporated several vintage inspired elements into my big day. It all started with my vintage influenced engagement ring which looked similar to this...


And the vintage trend continued with the very Jackie Kennedy bridesmaids' dresses...here's a picture...


And the vintage theme continued at the reception which took place in a lovely old southern house. Very traditional and quite old south style. It was my wedding day fairytale dream...

And on the vintage theme goes with little touches such as the mixed and matched decorative china (which if you're planning a wedding might be helpful to know that renting china is comparable in price to using disposable. Plus it's sustainable and more eco-friendly!)...

I've always loved the look of combining the classic style of vintage pieces (like the china above) with modern touches (like the chic little cupcakes from Ashley's Cakes). From my own wedding planning experience, and now working in weddings, I've learned that by mixing traditional with contemporary  you can achieve a fabulous custom look that's really all your own (and often times for a more budget friendly price!)

 Besides, what southern girl doesn't love enjoying stylish wedding cupcakes on china that has an old fashioned flare?


P.S. Sweet tea and lemonade where the beverages of choice if you were curious. Yes, southern sweetness all the way...




...And in case you're wondering...our bridesmaids' dresses and shoes were from David's Bridal (but they are not longer available, I've had several people ask!), we got our rentals from CE Rentals, our caterer was Green Planet Catering, and our photographers were Walters & Walters.
