Weekend Shenanigans

I never thought I would be so excited for the weekend to get shit done. This past weekend I literally ADULTED so hard. Because we are leaving for two weeks to Alaska, I wanted to start packing, laundry, clean the house (I love coming home to a clean house), and spend some time working on new designs for my business. I spent some major time buying new props to take photos of my products with. I am so excited for my new flat lays! (I guess this is what adulting is like? Getting excited over a flat lay.)

I spent some time with instagram stories over the weekend. So you can see behind the scenes, what goes into an instagram post, and special coupon codes will be featured there! I've been majorly working on photography for my business, and it's both fun and frustrating at the same time. What do you think?

My girlfriend got engaged to her Englishman over the weekend and I of course had to make her a goody basket perfect for your newly engaged friends or family! (Who doesn't want to show off that new bling with these goodies?)

In the meantime, I will be out of town until September 2nd! I cannot wait for our travel adventures! I'll be posting as much as possible on Instagram, so make sure to check me out!

Wedding Color Palette

When I originally started planning our wedding, I knew I wanted to incorporate my favorite color. (Tiffany Blue) I was very particular of the color. I didn't want turquoise or baby blue, I wanted a mint/tiffany blue. I had all these great ideas on decor and once I continued planning I thought it would be fun to incorporate my other favorite color into the mix. (Coral).  

As a graphic designer, I love colors that compliment each other, and being that Tiffany Blue and Coral are on the opposite sides of the color wheel, I knew it was the perfect match. I love how they make each other pop!

Now that I was able to incorporate my two favorite colors into our wedding, I was even more excited than when I first started planning! (Is that even possible?)  I originally wanted Tiffany blue dresses and coral flowers, but I loved the coral dresses we found and had to switch it up. The color and design was so beautiful.

I love the bright dresses with the shimmering stones. I knew I wanted something completely different than the normal wedding trends. I wanted flashy dresses.  Because my wedding dress was sweetheart, I wanted my bridesmaids to match. So we found their dresses in sweetheart style as well.  I gifted them these pretty matching bracelets I found on this etsy shop, AMI Designs

At first I wanted to have Tiffany Blue in my bouquet, but I love the color against the girls dresses (and plus I am a total Bling Bride.) So I chose to have a rhinestoned bouquet and my girls had the Tiffany Blue.

I love how well the two colors compliment each other, and because we had a summer wedding (July) I wanted it to be fun and pop!

I wanted my Flower girl and ring bearer pillows to match too! I couldn't find the photo I have of them, but here's one off her site.  I changed the grey to be Tiffany Blue.
 Ordered from CutieButtsBoutique, however I am not sure if she still makes them.

What are your two favorite colors that compliment each other? I'd love to hear about it! Sound off in the comments!

My Pinterest Inspired Wedding

Nowadays Pinterest has pretty much taken over the world. Not a day goes by where I don't check up on pinterest to see some inspiration!  When I was planning my wedding, I went to pinterest for ideas, inspiration, and motivation! I will share with you my inspiration and then my actual wedding! It's so cool how everything comes together after all that planning!

I searched forever for these inspiration dresses and found out they were between $300-400 each, so I went on a hunt to find something just as beautiful for a huge fraction of the price!  My girls dresses were found in downtown LA for $80 per dress.

This was also another inspo for hair:

And then I had my inspiration for my nails for my Bachelorette Cruise!

I hope you enjoyed my inspirations! You can totally make your "pinterest wedding" come true! Whether you DIY everything or not!  Check out my Etsy shop for some wedding-related items, and I can help make your pinterest wedding come to life!
