Veil or Headpiece?

Recently I've been going back and forth about wearing a veil vs. headpiece for the wedding ceremony. I want the best of both worlds, but don't want to be tacky.

Why I didn't think of this before, I don't know.


So while perusing these breathtaking photos from the one, the only Neysa Ruhl, I had a sudden realization...

I can wear a veil and a headpiece. I'll just do a little switch-a-roo.


OK, excuse me while I go geek out.

I'm trying to find invitations that will help set the mood for our wedding day. Something antique-y, vintage and glamorous.

Found these beauts on Etsy. Would have the designer make them in our colors, of course. Whatcha think??


What do you think of this color palette?

Are the colors right for a vintage-inspired Spring wedding?


On Losing My Best Friend

September has been one hell of a month.

In four short weeks I managed to wreck my car and lose my best friend.

The car can be fixed.

But the pain of losing someone so close to my heart cannot.

It's a long story and unfortunate in more ways than I can articulate. And the saddest part is, I'll never know the true reason why she chose to drop out. Friends for 20 years, you'd think I merit an explanation. But I'll never understand...

Because I was there for her wedding - as her maid of honor, standing by her side as she married the man she dated for many years. ON THE BEACH.

I was the one who put on a bridal shower - with no help from family or friends.

I was the one who shelled out money I did not have - just to see her smile.

If I had to quantify what I invested in her happiness....well, I won't do that for sake of my own sanity.

As I share my pitiful story with others I'm beginning to realize that if a friend isn't happy on account of your own happiness, are they a friend at all?

Nope. Not at all.

This little realization is the only thing bringing me peace right now.

I have nothing else to say on this subject.
