If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you know how much I adore beautiful paper products, and how much I love sharing them with you! So if you don’t know about our sponsor, Smitten on Paper yet, then you are in for a real treat.

I am in love with the pale pink rose on a charcoal background in these Romance Darling invitations.

Smitton on Paper not only has some of the most whimsical, creative wedding invitations out there, but they also offer customization at no additional cost! If you want to change a font, color, or wording, no problem – you’ll work with one of their designers to ensure that your invitation is exactly what you want it to be.

Looking for even more customization features? How about this special touch: Premium Guest Address Printing means that instead of basic address printing, you can pull together the entire look of your invitation suite with a perfectly corresponding address style.

Love, right?! See even more designs from Smitten on Paper over on their site, including wedding invitations with ribbon and pockets, tons of stunning floral designs, and playfully modern looks that are sure to impress your guests.

Melissa Schollaert shared these lovely photos of Chaviano Couture’s 2013 collection with us, and they were just too dreamy not to share…

Flowing tulle, delicate lace, and hand painted organza… the collection perfectly embodies romance and whimsy.

Don’t you love the barely-there roses on the skirt of this gown? So sweet and unexpected!

This weekend three of my very best friends are hosting a baby shower tea for me, and I can’t wait! Especially once I realized the Cinco de Mayo evite they sent me was a joke and that they would not actually be serving margaritas out of baby bottles – really funny, girls. Although I have to say, at eight months pregnant, I have no idea what I’m going to wear (my uniform most days is maternity jeans, a tank top, and flip flops – not exactly afternoon tea attire). The rest of the weekend will involve continued nesting efforts and my last prenatal appointment with my doula. I know I say this every week, and it’s probably getting old, but I honestly can’t believe how fast time is flying by and how soon our little girl will be here. It’s overwhelming and awesome all at the same time (which is what I imagine motherhood will be like, too).
