I’m baaaaaack!!!So, here we are… at the end of the wedding marathon. Well, almost, anyway. I am good and married; we had our destination wedding and our at-home reception. So now to wrap it all up! I have included it ALL here, but I will try
All My Bags are Packed, I’m Ready to Go… are you singing Leaving on a Jet Plane in your head yet? 😉 Well, all my bags are almost packed. I have run into a snag that is particular with destination weddings: packing.Basically, you have to cram everything you
Brandon and I are VERY fortunate. We each have both parents, all of our aunts, uncles, cousins… and until just under one year ago, we both still had all four grandparents. The only people close to us who had passed away were great aunts and uncles
Our DIY Fan Wedding Programs Another DIY adventure. Not all DW (destination wedding) brides have programs. Ceremonies tend to be shorter, you have already spent a couple days with everyone, and there does not seem to be much of a purpose really. But early in the

Most of the posts I write here are pretty general, but every once in a while something comes up specific to destination weddings. This is one such post. It was not that long ago, really, that if you were planning on traveling, you talked to a
Well, we just passed the three-month mark in the great wedding countdown. Final projects are wrapping up, major changes are taking place, items are getting crossed off the to-do lists… So I thought this might be a great time to reorganize some of the giant “wedding
Wait, My Ring is From WHERE? eBay. Yes, I am going to say that again. eBay. Now I am going to do you one better. Actually, 2 better. My engagement ring, my wedding band, and Brandon’s wedding band, were all from eBay. We found our wedding rings
This detail was actually one of Brandon’s ideas, and I love it! There are cake toppers that I like on etsy; some are upwards of $150! For a cake topper? I don’t think so! So Brandon proposed an idea, which I immediately (and excitedly) agreed to
