wedding tub.

I know that I'm not the only one that feels this way.
I know that I'm not the only one who wishes it was around years ago.
Pinterest.
namely that wedding category.
I absolutely loved our wedding.
Everyone that walked in said that it was "totally me".
It was my exact vision, colors and all.
I had been planning my wedding for years.
I had a few tubs of magazine, color coated notebooks, invitations, fabric samples...you name it, I had it.
I kept everything, I signed up for everything, and I attended every wedding reception we were invited too.

I think this tweet from my best friend in high school sums it up....

Ready for a :
  's wedding notebook and box was THE Pinterest before it ever existed.
I've also been known to tell me husband that I wish we could get married again again...5 times...
because of Pinterest. Of course it would be to him...just a different dress, colors, location...


Who would have thought of having their wedding in a barn 5 years ago??!...honestly.
 Barn receptions go well with Fall weddings.
.barn reception
or who would have thought of this...
lace cupcakes...
 Lace cupcakes!
this...
absolutely genius!
 great idea.
and I can promise you that this wasn't around...
Wedding Party: a FREE app that makes it easy for all of your guests to share their event photos
this...
personalize the groom's tie
or even this...
Have your fiancé write you a final message before you put on your shoes for the ceremony and read it before you walk down the aisle

well clearly someone did...but it wasn't me apparently.
I won't lie...my wedding and reception were pretty amazing...
and we had some pretty amazing details...
-The hubby and I actually made our own wedding cake.
- I made all of our bouquets and boutonnieres 
 
 - We designed & made our own invitations.  [I don't have a picture of the back]
 -We had customized cookies with our initials on them.
- My grandma made and sewed all of our table-runners and cake table cloth. She's amazing.
  - oh and, my brother was pretty awesome and wrote this on our get-away car! :)
  
 [yes! that says SCORE ON SUNDAY!] haha.

BUT just think about the possibilities...all thanks to pinterest.

So if you are not yet married...do me a favor and use Pinterest to the fullest.
I'm sure I will look at your boards over and over and over again....totally normal right?!





[ps. make sure you check out for love of a cupcake. One awesome give-away going on with some pretty wonderful prizes! [I'm giving away a Sephora gift card!] ]

  10. I completely agree! pinterest would've changed the way we did things, for sure. :) but I'm almost glad at the same time, because it would've been more stress! Love your wedding pics!
