Have I been gone long enough?? Holy Moly, I feel like it has been forever! Our East Coast tour was incredibly fun. We ended up spending several days in both Boston and New York with a little bonus trip to Atlantic City. I've never been to the East Coast (unless you count the Philadelphia airport...) so I honestly had no idea what to expect in terms of the weather. I'll just tell you right now, cardigans and heels just don't cut it in New York in December. This I learned the hard way and ended up lugging a suitcase full of clothing I couldn't wear all over.
I have to thank all my amazing guest bloggers for helping me out during my trip. They had some amazing guest posts which they were kind enough to share with all of us via Engaged & Inspired. (In case you missed any, here they are: Paint DIY by Paper Garland, Love Birds by She Said Yes, White Romantic by Blush Printables, Backyard Inspiration by Trisha Dean, Vintage Wedding by Steph Bubble, Fall Destinations by Destination Diva, Desert Wedding by Landlocked Bride, Escort Cards by Every Last Detail.) Which was your favorite?
But now I am back with piles of work and Christmas just around the corner meaning wedding planning is going on the back burner until January. But in a way I am actually really happy about this. On one hand I have less than 4 months until the wedding and so very much to do. On the other, I have had time to step away from all the photos and clear my head. I am coming back to it with a blank canvas of a head and am now ready to actually make decisions and stick to them!
I even managed to get some wedding inspiration from the 6 story Tiffany & Co. Definitely taking aspects of this idea for the wedding!
Before I left I spoke a bit about the fact that I had finally figured out the centerpieces. No joke, I would go to bed thinking about these, spend so much time worrying about which to pick, blah blah blah. It was driving me a bit crazy actually. I am sure you have had something like that which you just can't seem to get out of your mind. Well, I randomly stumbled across this photo and like a lightbulb shining bright, I just KNEW I had found the perfect idea.
So, since I can't seem to keep anything to myself about this wedding (really I can't. I try and I fail. You guys are like conversational wizards that just pull things out of me!) I have decided to post the inspirational pick that started it all. (And if I see this in a wedding before mine, I am going to be really sad, but it's the chance I have to take.)
