Happy Wedding Wednesday Royals! I told you guys last week that I am very slowly climbing aboard the wedding planning train. The good news is the train has left the station! I am committed to documenting my journey and sharing it with all of you. Over the weekend, I attended the Wedding Connection Bridal Show, here in St. Louis. It wasn’t a HUGE show and it was the second I’ve attended since getting engaged, but I tried a few things to make the most of my wedding show experience, and I couldn’t wait to share them with my fellow brides-to-be.

3 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding

Hey Royals! I feel like I’ve been away from social media and the blog for far too long (I only had one new post last week and have been fairly absent for social media). I’ve been busy adulting, spending a little time with my family, and enjoying being newly engaged. On the wedding front, we’ve got a date in mind (that’s pretty far from now) and I’ve been really trying to figure out where and how to get started. Understandably, the Boy isn’t ready to start wedding planning (nor is he all that into the details), but I on the other hand am eager to get started. You guys know how I live (royal in reality), so you know I’m planning to try to save as much money as possible. I’m using this time before we actually need to book a venue and vendors to do some research (and save money). (more…)

3 Questions From a Newly Engaged Bride-to-Be

Holy smokes, The Boy and I are getting married! It still feels unreal to say aloud and type. Things really started to set in after I shared our love story and how he asked on Tuesday. So far everyone has been asking when we’ll get married and where it will be, but I’m still enjoying the moment of being newly engaged. We have very briefly discussed a date far enough down the road to be able to actually afford a wedding. As of now, I have PLENTY of time to plan, but I randomly dawned on me that I have no clue where to start. Lucky for me, I know many of my readers are married and/or engaged and thus have experience planning weddings so I thought I’d seek advice your these women. I have so many questions, but I weeded them down to what I think are the most important three right now and I’m hoping that anyone with experience can help this newly engaged bride-to-be out!

Holy Sh*t, I’m Getting Married – Our Love Story

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know by now that The Boy and I are engaged! We have been so thrilled and overwhelmed with the all of the congratulatory texts, calls, FB messages, etc. I have read every single message and I can’t thank all of you enough. As to be expected, everyone has been asking us how he popped the big question and/or how we met. Valentine’s Day seems like the perfect time to share our love story with the world. (more…)

3 Great Valentine’s Day Ideas for Him + Thursday 3 Link Party

Valentine’s Day is just a few days away and if you haven’t made any plans you better keep reading. Valentine’s Day is a holiday usually catered to and centered around women. I’m not sure who made the rules, but somewhere along the way this holiday became men proving/professing their love to their woman while the woman sat back and soaked it all in. Now, I’m all for being spoiled and having The Boy shower me with love, BUT I think it’s unfair that a day reserved for lovers only celebrates the love in one direction. I like to shower The Boy with love and believe it’s important that he also feels special on Valentine’s Day. However, it can be a little tricky finding an activity that’s not too girly. but actually shows love in a way he will perceive as such. This is why I’m sharing 3 great Valentine’s Day ideas for him that your man will love! (more…)
