Friday Musings

1. Curious about what name change is right for you? Take this funny quiz to find out your ideal married name!

2. Every year Pantone, the global color authority, influences countless aspects of the coming year with their announcement of the "Color of the Year".  This year, Radiant Orchid is making a name for itself in its presence on runways and weddings alike.  We love this rich purple hue as inspiration for a color palate!

3. It’s your turn to ask the question!  Celebrate your girls with these 5 creative ways to ask your bridesmaids to stand by your side on your special day!

4. It's hard to beat a great brunch! We love the idea of a morning-after wedding brunch for your guests. Keep it simple and casual for guests to reminisce your epic wedding and say their good-byes. Mimosas, coffee, a hangover kit (including water and advil) and some yummy snacks will definitely be appreciated!

5. If you're a bride with a passion for charity, we've got just the bridal shower, or engagement party for you!  Hope at Home specializes in hosting wine tasting events and will donate 15% of proceeds to the charity of your choice!  Their blog and Instagram are also full of fun DIY ideas!

Friday Musings

1. Make thank-you note writing a little easier with this personalized return address stamp. We love how cute the state of Texas is with your new married last name! 

2. Love these stemless champagne glasses for your bridesmaids to sip out of on the big day! And it's personalized for each girl to make it special. An added bonus, you won't have to keep up with who's glass belongs to who, which can get tricky after a day of bubbly :)

3. How cute are these letterpress prints? Love the idea of decorating your home with these if you go on a honeymoon to any of these European locations! 

4. The Sweetest Occasion recently posted about their love of food trucks and we couldn't agree more. Mix up the typical late-night food at your wedding by getting a food truck. Or thinking of having an engagement party... why not have a food truck cater? From burgers to snowcones, Houston has a ton to offer. AND what a perfect date night out to taste all your options :)

5. Tanks, hoodies, bags, and more, check out ILY couture's "wifey" line. This mint tank is perfect for the summer bride to wear on her honeymoon!
