Friday Musings

1. Pretty amazing story! A couple bought an abandoned french chateau and have started a blog to share their journey. 

2. This app is everything. The most entertaining, laugh out loud app ever. It's called relay and you are going to be addicted. Send gifs to your friends and enjoy!

3. We see robes, oversized men's shirts, cute monogrammed button ups, but why not more PJ's on wedding day? After all haven't you been having slumber parties with your bridesmaids for years... 

4. Noise makers for the happy couple! What a cute and creative idea for once the couple is hitched. 

5. Summertime and popsicles go hand in hand! Try this list of 33 homemade popsicles find your favorite and then have them ready for a bridal shower, luncheon, pool party, or even a cool way to chill out on wedding day!

Friday Musings

1. Starting May 15th is this amazing new line from Plum Pretty Sugar called PomPon! Perfect for you and your bridesmaids to get ready in. Cute robes, boyfriend shirts, and shirt dresses. Love all the colors and patterns too!

2. Check out these gorgeous bridal shoes from Bionda Castana. They're stunning, yet different than the typical bridal shoe. We love these strappy gold and white ones... check out their website to see all they offer.

3. How easy and fun does this coffee filter garland look? Perfect for a little bridal shower decor! We especially love this soft pink!!

4. Love a classic wedding cake like this blue and white one. A little different than the typical all white cake, yet still elegant (and most likely delicious)!!

5. This lady-like flower girl dress from Etsy is beyond adorable. A mini bride without looking like a mini cupcake. The details on this dress are just perfect!
