Happy weekend Birdies! I’m so excited about today’s post. One of my favorite things to do is meet lovely human beings in the wedding industry who are offering unique and fantastic services to brides. This week, I attended a launch party for Carried Jewels, an online jewelry boutique specializing in engagement and bridal jewelry for the modern day bride. Why do i love them? Not only is the business run by the two most fantastically refreshing women, but the pieces are affordable, nontraditional, and just stunning. No two rings are alike and they’re all made to order. As someone that keeps my eyes open to bridal trends, I find that most of the big box jewelers carry the same styles of rings. It’s so refreshing to find Carried Jewels that really cares about catering to brides that aren’t looking for rings that all the other brides have. I was fortunate enough to see (and try on) some of their beautiful wares in person at the launch party hosted by Honey Bridal . Such a fun way to spend a Thursday evening: sipping cocktails courtesy of Crafthouse Cocktails , indulging in sweet treats by Altissima Cake Co. , and trying on sparkly jewelry! Each ring has it’s own personality, and you can even, layer, stack, and mix and match your favorites for the perfect bridal set! If you’re in the market for a ring, whether its for the ceremony or an anniversary, Carried Jewels is definitely the place to look. You can see their full collection online here

Veil, Hair, and Accessories!

Happy Sunday Funday! I hope everyone’s weekend was wonderful! I wanted to take a second to share with you a tidbit of what’s going on with my own personal planning! With my vow renewal a short three weeks away, I finally took home my dress and veil! I was having a dilemma, like most brides do, about what to do with my hair: Up? Down? Straight? Curly? Veil or no veil? At the end, I decided to go with a veil, since i did a birdcage veil when i first gor married. As far as my tresses, I want to look beautiful but I want my hair to be as low maintenance as possible. In other words, I wanted a style that 1) I could do myself and 2) I could do in 20 minutes or less. I decided on a simple blow out with two braids pinned back on either side. Quick, simple, and pretty!
