The Not Wedding NYC recap

A couple of weeks ago I was able to attend New York’s first Not Wedding, and it was super fun! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but in a nutshell, attendees are literally guests to the very cool wedding of 1 lucky couple.  You get to see the ceremony, partake in the reception, and then meet with all the great vendors who took part making it happen.  All the guests get to walk away with ideas for their own weddings, and a fun party to boot, so whats not to like!  If you have a chance to attend one of their future events, definitely go (next up is Nashville)!

5 honeymoon ideas for the modern couple


Are you having trouble deciding where to go for your honeymoon? It’s a tough yet exciting choice! When I was planning my honeymoon, we chose Barcelona because we both were interested in seeing the beautiful architecture and being some place warm. We got what we asked for! This is a list of places that I’ve either been to or am dying to get to. What makes it places for a modern couple? They’re not necessarily traditional places to go for a honeymoon

Tokyo, Japan: I’m DYING to get to Tokyo because I hear it’s so fascinating. This would be a place for the couple who loves big cities and likes trying new things: new cuisine+new language+new culture=new adventures! Photo

Santorini, Greece: I’ve also never been to Greece, but I can’t imagine a more peaceful setting. I think it’d be lovely to park it for a week or two and just soak in the sun and relax. Photo

Iceland: Iceland is CRAZY. Crazy good. My husband and I went here for the first time last year and I’ve never experienced anything remotely like it. It’s a great place for the outdoorsy type, especially if you like camping (I do not). You are allowed to camp anywhere in Iceland. The scenery is spectacular. It’s the closest thing to feeling like you’re on another planet. Photo

Road trip, USA: I think it’d be great fun to travel from coast to coast, stopping at quirky pitstops along the way. There’s nothing like seeing the beauty of our country. Photo

Salt Mines in the Sacred Valley of Peru: Machu Picchu is right near by and there are a lot of great trekking things to do here. Definitely for the more outdoorsy couple. Photo

8 ways to add yellow to your wedding


To me, yellow means the arrival of summer and a yellow wedding is the perfect way to capture the season. Use it on its own for a bold statement or pair it with either a navy or pink and you’ll surely set a memorable tone to the event.

Yellow flowers  |  yellow cupcakes   |  yellow cutlery  |  yellow shoes  |  yellow candies  |  yellow tablecloth  |  yellow drinks |  yellow straws
