Wedding Planning
Bloggin' My Pants Off!
Girls!

I have been maintaining a blog about my wedding planning adventures!
I do love the wedding by color site, but having my own blog gives me a chance to do a little more and I eventually want to turn the blog into a scrapbook.

So . . . check it out when you have a chance. Even better subscribe! I would love to hear from you all.

I want to get to a point where I have guest bloggers - but I need a following first :)

Olio Style Invitations
When I first took a peek at the Wedding by Color website, I poured over all the pictures from most of the profiles.

I came across some adorable / beautiful invitations - that I just had to have.

A few months later, I have my own version of these invites!

See the pictures to the left.

I highly recommend Olio Style. I have ordered samples from many design shops and had have some great experiences - I must say. But working with Olio Style to design and purchase my invites was an INCREDIBLE experience. If there were an award for excellence in invitation creation, Olio wins hands down!

Monogram
I created this, this is my first stab.

Ideally if there are labels,stickers,favors - I want the monogram on it.

Needs more blue, I am sure this monogram will change 5 x before the wedding. :)

--- Thanks to Everyone for your great comments regarding my design monogram!!

Centerpiece Idea
Made this with friends.

Wedding colors are chocolate and blue ( sort of a Pool/Turquoise).
Just an idea, reception might morph into a 'starry night'/'dreams come true' theme.
