Wedding Planning: I Didn’t Plan for a Pre-Wedding Cold!

Four days before my wedding I woke up at 1am with a headache. It had been weeks since I slept through the night, so at first I didn’t think much of it and moved myself to the couch. I get head aches fairly often (tired, stressed, dehydrated). I took Tylenol, did a few yoga stretches, […]

Wedding Planning: Checklist & Managing Stress!

Gift Guide: Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

Asking the most special ladies in your life to be part of your “bride tribe” is so exciting, but it can also be stressful. I wanted to ask each of them with a special gift. I did not start any of my wedding planning immediately after getting engaged. I decided to wait a few months […]
