Centerpiece inspiration I took at the Franklin Mercantile


Our rubbermaid bin full of paper flowers, thanks to my mom and her awesome friends! They are just waiting to be glued to the balls to make more poms!


This is my rehearsal dinner dress! $20 bucks on sale at Belk, originally 150. Yay! It’s sparkly champagney and I love it. The brown is the same style… couldn’t find a pic of it in the right color. It’s a size 8, which means I’m still on track to get down to a 6 by the wedding. :)
