Engagement season starts right around Thanksgiving and lasts all the way into mid-February. Yes, basically, Valentine’s Day. It’s no surprise that almost 40% of all engagements take place between November and February. The holidays allow for family and friends to be together in celebration. Plus, everyone is just generally in a better mood during these months, amiright?
Engagement season is also the time of the year when trend predictions start coming out in the wedding world. In this blog, I’ll talk about the top ring trends for 2019 and give you some pinnable images to leave around the house as hints. Plus, you’ll get some ideas on how to find the perfect engagement ring and why shopping together is essential.
I don’t know about you, but I hate shopping. I mean, I loathe it. If I can’t find exactly what I want, in the time I have decided I need to find it, it’s a full meltdown. Shopping for fun is a foreign concept to me and I typically won’t buy an article of clothing if it won’t work with 87 things I already have in my closet.
Sounds like a super candidate for a bride looking for a wedding gown, right?
Maybe you’re someone that actually enjoys shopping, or perhaps, you’re twinning with me right now. Shopping for your wedding gown is a completely different type of shopping.

In this blog, I am sharing the best ways to find your wedding gown and real advice not just from a wedding planner, but as a former bride to be who went through the process.
Spoiler alert: I went to one store and bought the second dress I tried on.

Dear brides everywhere,
You are your own worst enemy.
Someone who knows (AKA me)
Wedding planning is naturally stressful. You could be the most chill, yoga practicing, namaste-ing bride on the planet, but I guarantee that something will stress you out while planning your wedding day. That “something” might come in the form of your parents, the wedding party, and even your guests; it should never come from you. Here are 10 things brides do to stress themselves out, and what they should be doing instead.
Signature drinks have gone from trendy to expected at weddings. In fact, signature drinks are being served at holiday parties, bridal showers and even at Friday night hangouts with friends. But what makes the perfect signature drink? It’s more than what you put into it.
If just grabbing a recipe off a google search isn’t good enough for you, read on to find out the 10 secrets how to create the perfect signature drink!
How to find the perfect wedding venue, and everything an engaged couple should know is a big topic. And by “big” I mean that I could write an entire book on just this. There are countless blogs and articles available to brides and grooms about what to look for while on the wedding venue hunt. Thankfully, you found this blog, which means you can literally ignore the rest.
Why do I say that? Because the internet is full of trash, that’s why. As a wedding planner, I cannot tell you how many of my brides have brought me what they thought they knew, based on what they read on a wedding website. Not to mention the amount of wedding related articles I read on my own that are stacked with misleading or flat out wrong information.
In this blog, I’m sharing wedding planning tips about how to find the perfect wedding venue. These are the same tips I share as a real wedding planner with my brides and grooms. So, before you start the search for your wedding venue and fall down the google rabbit hole, grab that wedding planning journal I know you have, and get ready to take some notes!
