  • 23.21.11Meeting with the florist, Greg Warren!

    It seems like everywhere we go these days, people recommend Greg Warren Flowers.  They’ve said that his work is beautiful, he’s really good at making everything come together and he’s a great, honest guy.  Perfect for us! My mom and I went to meet with him Saturday morning to talk out some of the details […]

  • 02.20.11Group Effort – Save the Dates

    This weekend, we pulled a trick on our friends – sorry!  It was beautiful weather so we invited everyone to come up to the Millberg’s lake house to hang out.  Little did they know that we were also going to put them to work. While we did spend most of the time out on the […]

  • 32.10.11Designing Our Save The Dates – My Inner Cartoonist

    As Katy recently posted, we have decided to make our own save the date cards.  While this is a great way to save some money, it is also time-consuming and more labor-intensive.  However, now that we’re nearing 6 months from the wedding, it is time to get to work. The first step was to head […]

  • 01.31.11Carolina Inn Bridal Show

    Sunday, my mom, my roommate and I went to the Carolina Inn Bridal Show.  It was a beautiful weather! Sunny, 60+ degrees!  (What a tease – we’re back in the 40s now.) The lovely weather and vast array of vendors inspired about 800 people to come out.  I was a great opportunity to check out […]

  • 11.24.11Finding the dress!

    Six excited girls headed down to the lovely Smithfield, North Carolina this weekend to go wedding dress shopping (for me) for the first time.  1 store and 7 hours later, we left with the perfect dress!  Yes, I am one of a select few people who decided on a dress in the first store they […]
