Traditionally wedding registries allowed couples to choose household items (specifically china, silver and crystal patterns) that they preferred to have in the building of their new life as a married couple and share these preferences with wedding guests in order to prevent unwanted gifts. The use of wedding registries has evolved into several more modern alternatives. Online, honeymoon, charity and even cash registries are just some of the more popular registries today. [Read more...]
She’s baaa-aaack! In a follow-up to her buzz-worthy Part I on Invitations, Triple B contributor Nae returns with the 411 on her invitation suite designs and more. As always, show love in the comments.
Once we had the guest list finalized, it was time to choose our invitation suite. Early on in the planning process I attended a bridal event at a stationery store. All of the talk about letterpress and typeset made me realize that Mr. DrummerBoy and I would not be going the traditional wedding stationery route. After browsing several different styles, we decided on the Love Story design above (picture from Pinterest). [Read more...]
It is amazing how many presumptive inquiries Mr. DrummerBoy and I began receiving after announcing our engagement. Questions like “Have you picked your colors yet? I like to try and coordinate with the wedding party” and statements like “I hope you’re inviting a good proportion of single men and women so that I can meet someone.” Ummm…Really? [Read more...]
Last month my fiance and I took engagement pictures in our New York City stomping grounds. We chose the talented Kesha Lambert to capture the pics. The equally talented Charlene Armstrong did my make-up (I really like how she made my eyes pop!). My fiance — who I’m lovingly referring to as Mr. TK in this post — and I decided to take most of our e-session pics in and around The Cloisters in Fort Tryon Park, located in Inwood, NY. Inwood is just a stone’s throw away from Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan. The Cloisters are in my top fave places in The Big Apple partly because it isn’t on the radar of most folks the way Central Park is and I happen to like that. Fort Tryon Park is also where Mr. TK took me for what I thought was an impromptu date the day he proposed so it will always hold a special significance to us as a couple. I had a really hard time narrowing down selects for today’s (Not Quite) Tie the Knot Tuesday feature. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed taking them.
Since I’m preparing to send out my Save-the-Dates in the coming weeks (WOO HOO!), I thought this post was timely. My fiance and I had some questions about what to do and what not to do so I’m anxious to share my recent findings with you all. As always, Triple B encourages everyone to ultimately do what works best for them and their household. (I’m even tweaking a couple of these for my own Save-the-Dates…) However I thought the below suggestions were pretty universal: [Read more...]
Last weekend I attended the Style to the Aisle, A Bride’s Runway event at L’Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C. Created by Michelle Davis of Memorable Moments Event Planning Co. in Baltimore, MD, this one-of-a-kind bridal fashion event brings brides face to face with designers, bridal boutiques, models, photographers, makeup artists and hair stylists. This event is different from most bridal shows/expos in that it is centered around Michelle’s belief that the aisle is a bride’s personal runway and every bride is a celebrity on their special day. Who can argue with that? [Read more...]
Choosing a bridal party is a significant step in planning your wedding. Some opt to forego an entourage and keep the focus of the big day on the two coming together as one. As has become par for our course, Mr. DrummerBoy and I went about choosing our wedding day companions in a completely different manner.
I’m preparing to take my engagement pictures — WOO HOO! I thought we could do something fun and different today for BPOTW. Manicurist Lisa Logan will be giving me a manicure before the e-session and I’m not sure what kind of design I want. Lisa is insanely creative on her own, but it helps when I give her some sorta direction, ya know? So, take a look below at the three ideas she recently created and then leave a comment with your pick. Thanks, y’all! [Read more...]
I’ve been debating on whether or not I should post this all day. We’ll get back to Tie the Knot Tuesday next week but today I have to share a
little big breakthrough I recently had about wedding planning, marriage planning and how the two intersect. Why? Because I know I can’t possibly be the only engaged woman who has experienced this. Last weekend, I had my first (hopefully only) wedding planning meltdown. It wasn’t one of those crazy Bridezilla-esque ones but more of a “…How the *bleep* did we get here?!” kinda moments. Let me explain.
