{Weekly Recap} The one where my blog and life are crazy busy!

The last couple weeks have been pure insanity! After finishing up the Fashion Show I had to clean-up,  go through all the photos, etc. etc. Before that was even finished, it was suddenly moving day, so I was wrapped up in packing/moving/unpacking/sorting through boxes to find my other shoe (which I still haven't found anywhere!) On top of that, we have been meeting with brides to do their event design! Oh and I am writing for a slue of blogs, online mags, etc. now too. Oh and, aren't I supposed to be finding a venue and planning a wedding? Weird because I haven't even had time to think about that! Definitely hectic, but SO much fun! So, onto to the blog recap now that I am done telling you my busy schedule. If you follow me on Twitter, you have probably seen the tough questions I have been asking "Better venue or more people at your wedding?" "Refined Winery or Rustic Ranch?" And no, I am not just asking random questions, I am taking questions that I can't answer for myself and throwing them to you guys....consider yourselves the decision makers of my wedding! (haha how awesome would that be if you guys did all the decision making, for real) So, I took it to the blog and gave the three options of venues I am looking at. I was overwhelmed by the comment love I received and all the answers that everyone chimed in! It has definitely made my decision easier since everyone is bringing up incredibly great points for me to take a look at! So, thanks to everyone who responded, and  make sure you add in your answer as well!

Next up on the list is the A-MAZ-ING giveaway I have going on right now! Create a bridal look (dress and whatever accessories you love) and enter to win a vintage hair piece and matching earring from Lottie-Da Designs! Check out all the details at and send in your submissions.

I had bridal showers on my mind, so I had to make a cute little pink and green bridal shower inspiration board! I have since decided on doing a Bridal Shower Brunch, so we'll see what comes of that! Cute idea though, right?

Though I have already  professed my obsession with Vera Wang many times over, I decided to do it once again to show off her latest Spring 2011 collection, including the dress-of-my-almost-dreams! (If I could get the Diana or Dorothy dresses out of my mind for longer than a second!)

I had the opportunity to feature a wedding with the most fun looking guest list ever!  I gotta hand it to an incredible photographer, none other than Aaron Shintaku, for capturing some incredibly fun (and probably also embarrassing) photos from this wedding! Not to mention the fact that the bride was definitely rocking the vintage look, which just makes this whole wedding that much more enjoyable!

Oh for the love of florals! Centerpieces really get to me for some reason. It's pretty much an obsession of mine. This centerpiece post is no different! I'm loving all the different options I have with this little detail of the wedding :)

Speaking of florals, this wedding by Picotte Photography had some of the best florals ever! LOVE LOVE LOVE. Oh and if you want to fall in love with a wedding venue, this place is a great one to fall for!

To end the round-up of the week, let's talk about the sign-in table! That is yet another thing I happen to be OBSESSED with. I came across an amazing idea involving no table at all actually! Instead, I plan on using an antique cabinet and hanging the place cards on the doors. Which leaves all the shelves for some pretty fun design opportunities!

So there you have it! I would love to hear from all of you about these ideas and any others that you are adding to YOUR wedding design! What is hitting you like a massive brick of inspiration??? Oh and do you follow me on Twitter? Cause you should be...I'm just saying! I love chatting it up with all of you brides and hearing about your lives as well! And don't forget that Engaged and Inspired offer event  design services too, so you can most definitely e-mail to get a quote for event design!

Giveaway Giveaway Giveaway!

Remember Stephanie and Garrett's wedding? Each bridesmaid was wearing a piece of handmade jewelry created by the bride's sister, Ashley. Ashley owns the jewelry shop SweetSouthernSorbet. When I asked Stephanie about different aspects of the wedding, this is what she had to say about her sister's jewelry. "My sister Ashley makes jewelry.  She made all of the bridesmaid necklaces for me with vintage jewels and beads.  Each was unique and beautiful.  All of the girls were so excited to have a piece of her jewelry!"

Here are some examples of her work:

Now Ashley is here to bring us a really amazing prize for our next giveaway! First let's majorly thank Ashley from SweetSouthernSorbet for the chance to win such a great piece, and let's get on to the giveaway!
