Well friends, I thought I would have a little more free time (and a little more internet access!) on my trip this weekend, but it looks like I’m going to be a bit of a delinquent blogger until I’m back home in a few days. I hope you’ll enjoy these fun links in the meantime, have a wonderful long weekend, and forgive my lack of posting…

Ponytail bride.

How about a road trip in one of these?

If I were to raise chickens

Beautiful cut-paper invites.

Send someone a party in their mailbox!

So many things I love about this photo shoot.

I kind of wish I could sew and make my honey a love letter like this.

Sometimes eloping sounds just right.

DIY Louboutins?

A delightfully retro beach engagement shoot.

Happy weekend lovelies! I’ll be back soon!

Mood: a bit of garden charm on the beach
Palette: sand, shell, plum

Who says a beach wedding has to include sand dollars and seashells? Instead, incorporate elements like flowers, twine, and wicker furniture, and enjoy the romance of both the garden and the beach. I chose to use a palette of mostly sand and shades of plum, and I think the result is unexpected and lovely (if I do say so myself!).

One of the things I’m most excited about getting married is creating a new home with my future husband. And since my taste is often more expensive than my wallet allows, I was really happy to hear about One Kings Lane.
