Let's Get Married.... Under The Sea!

Hey there! In today's post, I'm continuing in my series of the Modern Girls Guide to a Disney wedding with a wedding inspired by THE LITTLE MERMAID!


Now, this would obviously be a fantastic wedding to have on the beach, however, if you aren't a "beach bride", but love the theme, set your wedding at an aquarium! The Shedd Aquarium is a fantastic location for the bride looking for a beach/ Under the Sea theme without actually being at the beach!

These are the dresses I envision for the bride and bridal party:

For my next post, I'm taking a look at Snow White....

Until next time!



A Wedding fit for a Princess.... a Disney Princess!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE a good love story and there is no better love story than a Disney love story! For the next few posts, I'm taking a spin at modern weddings inspired by some of Disney's iconic love stories..... today, let's look at Cinderella.


Alfred Angelo Bridal has created an entire line of wedding dresses inspired by Disney Princesses, this one is the Cinderella:

When it comes to location and decor, a majestic ballroom, designed with a color theme of silver, blue and ivory are what I see for the ceremony and reception.

What are you Thankful for?!

This year, Thanksgiving is being hosted at my parent's house, and for the first time in 10 years, my mom's brothers and their families are traveling to my parent's house...... and I couldn't be more excited!

Every year, my Thanksgiving Day "duties" change, and this year, I am charged to design the tablescape our family will be looking at during dinner. Since there are so many of us, and I have two 8 foot tables to work with, I'm going for a "simple elegance" theme. The colors of the season- red, gold and orange, will be the focal theme.
I will be sure to share images once it's up, but I wanted to share a few Thanksgiving tablescapes that might inspire you to step out of the box and do something a little special for "Turkey Day"!





It's the most wonderful time of the year....

I know we are only in the beginning of October, but that also means the holidays are fast approaching, and along with that comes the holiday parties!

Christmas and New Year's are my favorite holidays, when the air is crisp, the snow is freshly fallen, holiday lights are ablaze, and homes are filled with the smell of gingerbread and pine! This is the time of year when holiday party invitations start rolling in, and whether you are hosting friends in your home or your company is hosting their annual employee Holiday gala, plans are being made now to host the perfect event!

Below are a few images of my favorite holiday party inspirations, I hope you find inspiration in them as well.
