Bridesmaid Dresses {The Color Face-Off}

My biggest dilemma with my bridesmaids dresses has been the color. I think I really like the ombre' or varied hues in one color look like the below examples.

I feel that I should stick to one color like blue or creamy tan. Same dress, totally different feel in each color.

The blending of two colors looks great here though!

My coordinator said the tan would look best with the blue flowers, but I think they would look great with blue dresses as well. Also, the styles may be a bit different to compliment each girl. Need your input all!


Which pallet are you feeling?

Wedding Website Sneak Peek

I got a call from my future sister-in-law (or just sister to me!) the other day with a very excited "Hey!!!". It seems that she was wondering if we had made our registries yet while on her lunch at work and decided to turn to Google to find the answer. Upon googling our names, she came across the Save-The-Date Video that the Mister had made for our wedding website. This of course reminded me that I haven't shared anything about our choices for a wedding website with you lovely readers! Surprise, we made one!

After sampling lots of different options we ultimately went with Wedding Wire's offerings. With unlimited pages and lots of add on's like maps, the ability to check on accommodations and even a reception song request tab, we couldn't go wrong. I also loved that the important things were available through a mobile version for people that were accessing the site through their phone.

With that said....I have to admit I am also using Appy Couple. The overall design of the app is ridiculously cool and new features are added all the time. I also like that our friends and family who have smart phones can follow along on our journey right from their home screen!

I"m really happy with how both sites are turning out and cannot wait for our guests to use them.

What lead you to choose your wedding website host? How do you feel like having an app just for your wedding info?

E&I Bride: Ashley

I'm super excited today to announce our newest E&I bride :) Her style is a bit crafty and a bit vintage modern. She is at the beginning of planning her wedding and is currently looking for the perfect venue to have her big day, which will be held in the Central Valley of California. Right now she is looking at a Castle in the area (yep, A castle!) but that backdrop changes her style choices a bit. (Finding the venue is definitely the make-break part of the whole process.) I'm am so excited to follow along on her journey wedding planning and tying the knot. I love watching the process from beginning to end especially a gal that has such great style. So, meet Ashley, our new Thursday Bride! Gorgeous, isn't she? (red-hair-twinsies!)
