Puppies with Flowers

This trend is something I can get behind 110%. Seriously, if I was having a Royal Wedding, pups would be the only people in the wedding. Besides me and the king, of course!

Marble Decor

Not only is marble aesthetically pleasing, it is aso going to be very popular among weddings in 2018. Marble invitations, decor, and place settings will be all the rage.

Sweetheart Tables

What is more romantic than sitting with your honey, eating a delicious meal that cost $20 a person, and watching your guests swoon over your beautiful day? Sitting together with no distractions from others. Yes, celebrating with your loved ones is so important, but in 2018 couples will want to have time to enjoy their wedding together. Not just in a dance or photo, but during their reception as well.

Ditching the Dinner

Millennial couples are spending more money on experiences and less on traditions. In 2018, cut back on your expensive meals or wedding cake. Instead, sub in appetizer trays, themed food bars, and dessert bars. Think cupcake towers and donut walls.

Colored Dresses

Many brides are taking the white out of their dresses. Blush, blue, and champagne colored gowns will be the center of many weddings.

No Wedding Party

Similar to ditching dinners, many couples will be celebrating their union with small wedding parties or none at all. Intimate weddings days are more wanted than ever in 2018.

My New Monogrammed Pieces

With a new last name comes a new responsibility – updating my monogram! Of course, I had to work with Marley Lilly to get this upgrade done. My monogram is changing from a B to an R, so the change is subtle, but there. Here are my new favorite pieces for winter.

These booties are EVERYTHING. I love a good duck boot and add a monogram – perfection. The only downside is that they run a little big, so definitely size down! They also come in some other cute colors.

Monogrammed Duck Boots – On sale for $49 right now!

Marley Lilly slays with this vest. It is so soft, so warm, and so cute! I love being able to look casually chic while rocking my new monogram.

Monogrammed Sherpa Vest – $49

This sweater is perfect for lazy days. Throw it on with a pair of jeans or leggings and you have a look! It is pretty long, well on me, so leggings is the go-to look. I actually wore it when Jake and I went on a date Friday night!

I hope you guys enjoyed my favorite monogrammed looks! What is your monogram?! Leave me a comment below letting me know <3

New Lip Products Try On!!!!

L'Oréal Paris

 

Helllllllo and Happy Saturday!!! As I type, I am getting ready to go to work… Until 12 AM. Holidays are no joke when it comes to retail. My hours have been insane lately. Luckily, I had some time to play with new makeup today! Jake has been watching some college football games recently, so this is my own Game Day Glam look!

L’Oréal Paris and I are teaming up on this post! Thanks so much for sponsoring, L’Oréal! They have some incredible lip products and I am so excited to share them with you. Recently, they released some designer-esque lippies. In fact, the applicator is so similar to some I’ve seen in prestige brands.

L'Oréal Paris
INFALLIBLE® Paints/Lip Liquid Lipstick:

First up is this beautiful, neutral pink shade! This color has tons of shine and lasts for up to 14 hours. I like to use the tip of the applicator to outline my lips for the perfect pout.

Where to wear: Wear to a daytime game when you want to be low key and relaxed.

L'Oréal Paris
INFALLIBLE® PAINTS/LIPS Matte Liquid Lipstick:

This lip is the PERFECT fall color. If you are watching football games, this is perfect for the crisp months. The matte is so smooth and long wearing.

Where to wear: Anywhere outside when the sun is setting or beneath the horizon.

L'Oréal Paris

INFALLIBLE® PAINTS/LIPS Metallic Liquid Lipstick:

This metallic lipstick is no joke. It is so glossy, yet has the gorgeous, metal like sheen. The color is gorgeous, too! This one is my favorite. It felt the most comfortable on the lips and is so unique. You guys know I love unique makeup products, so this is right up my alley.

Where to wear: A Game Day viewing party or out on the town!

I am obsessed with these lips. They are affordable and nice quality. Definitely pick these up and your lips will thank you!

5 TIPS TO A GREAT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Hello my lovely friends!!! In case you haven’t seen on my Instagram (and if you aren’t following me, click here to do so!), Jake and I finally received our entire gallery from our engagement shoot. Andrea Godfrey Photography (AGP) did such an incredible job. Those pictures will be down below!

5 tips to finding the perfect wedding photographer weddingwire

Wedding photos are such a personal, life long treasure, so finding someone who will capture your precious moments in such a classic, yet unique way is a little hard. I looked for so long before Jake and I were lucky enough to land on Andrea. Here are a few tips on how we found someone who captured us beautifully:

 

CHECK OUT WEDDINGWIRE

First off, thank you to WeddingWire for sponsoring this post. For real though, I used WeddingWire when hunting for photographers, venues, caterers and more. They have a nifty search bar that will show you vendors and REAL reviews. Those true comments are things you really want to read in depth.

 

DECIDE WHAT YOUR STYLE IS

Jake and I were wanting a whimsical, timeless style that still had a flair that you didn’t see everywhere. Some of my friends like the airy, bright look. Definitely look for a photographer who has a portfolio with a style you like. Make sure to tell them what shoots of theirs you really like.

 

CHOOSE YOUR BUDGET

For me, wedding photos were not something I was going to settle on. One day I may have Dementia and won’t remember my wedding day, but I will have photos to show how in love Jake and I were on that day. For this reason, I knew I was going to have to settle on my dress, venue, flowers, or caterer. I was okay with that, though, because the day is about Jake and me, not all the fancy fluffers.

 

CHECK WHAT’S INCLUDED

With Andrea, we had the engagement shoot included in the wedding price. For me, this was incredible because we now get pictures for Save The Date’s and other things. I looked at other photographers that were double to triple Andrea’s price and didn’t include anything besides 6 hours of wedding photography. With AGP, we really got bang for our buck.

 

PRINT RELEASE ?!

Definitely find out if you have to print through your photographer or if you get a release to print anywhere. If you have to order through your photographer, include that in your budget when evaluating the photog.
