Tip Top Shape

Getting in shape for the day of your wedding isn't new to brides. Most girls try it all to look their best on the big day and it can be a stressful time. Plan ahead and start early when your goal is to drop a size or two. There are plenty of bridal boot camps, pilates regimens and fitness classes to attend and be sure to follow a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables!

It's a Breeze Diet Clinic
is a great way to jump start your weight loss with their specialty diet that's loaded with protein. Also, an amazing fitness class to try is Body Attack at Lifestyle Family Fitness. One of my best friends, Kelli Pace teaches the cardio intense class on Tuesday's and Thursday's at the Swann Ave. location. Let me know if you plan on going, I try to go once a week!

Blog Love

One of my FAVORITE blogs ever is Hostess with the Mostess. A must-read blog for wedding planners and party planners in my opinion. They consistently has the cutest ideas on there! Check out these Smitten Sticks for brides planning on having a photo booth at the wedding.

My favorite detail about the blog is the stations, dessert tables and candy bars they're always showcasing. There is one for every occasion! Having a brunch reception? Do a breakfast pastry bar with mini french toast sticks, warm cinnamon buns and coffee cake. Love ice cream like me? At your bridal shower give out ice cream scoops as favor and have an ice cream topping bar. Yum!

Lilly Wedding

Do you know how bad I am DYING to do a Lilly Pulitzer wedding?! I'm such a fan of the preppy designer.

Not only do the bright prints remind me of living in NYC but whenever I'm wearing Lilly I always match Crafton's Southern style so well! Look at the potential of creating a pink and green Lilly wedding with one of their signature patterns throughout the entire wedding:

Super cute invitations:

Pink and green bouquet!

Ties for the groom and groomsmen:

Bridesmaid dresses your girls WILL wear again!

Yummy Lilly inspired cake:

Registry gift for the bride:

Lol, okay so maybe not realistically! But seriously, is this not the cutest golf cart you've ever seen!?

Red, White & Blue... with a twist!

4th of July inspired me to create a wedding inspiration board of our patriotic colors. Instead of true blue I substituted cerulean and instead of classic lipstick red, a fiery red-orange. Here is what I came up with for a wedding fit for George & Martha Washington!
