How To Pick Your Wedding Colors!

When planning my wedding, I knew I wanted the colors of blush & gold. I felt these two colors were both on trend, as well as timeless. For many brides, deciding on what your wedding colors should be can be a daunting task. Here are a few of my tips that should help make the choice a little bit easier.

  • Pick a dark and light combination: You want your wedding colors to be complimentary as well as contrasting. An easy way to do this is by picking a dark base color, and accenting it with your lighter color choice._mg_8230
  • Consider your season, but don’t let that limit you: I chose blush as one of my colors, which is typically a spring or summer color. But I got married in the fall. While it can be smart or convenient to select you colors based on the season you get married in, don’t let that limit your choices. I had my heart set on the blush color, oranges and burgundies just weren’t my thing. :
  • Use Pinterest as inspiration & direction: When you are picking linens, charger plates, flowers, and other items that involve your colors, it can get overwhelming. I highly recommend using Pinterest to hon your ideas. It will give you some direction, as well as specific pictures to show your vendors.
  • Make sure you have a base color: The base color of your palette needs to be a neutral. White, cream, or even black are great bases to keep your colors in check. Our wedding featured a lot of white in the background of the color scheme. This will help keep your colors from overwhelming your beautiful day. :

I hope these tips will help you when picking out your wedding colors! Comment below with your wedding day color scheme!

Bridal Shower Chic!

Happy Friday, everyone!

I thought I’d do a quick post on what I wore to my bridal shower party. Even though it was still summer time when I went looking for a shower dress, it was surprisingly difficult to find a white dress. After a while I was ready to give up. And in a way, I did! I have a Lilly Pulitzer dress I bought when I went to the Target exclusive day way back when. My mom saw me in it and said, “That’s what you should wear!” It’s a white dress with the pink print, so kinda bridal. Plus, very summery since the shower was in August!

DIY Minnie Mouse Ears!

Being the big Disney fans that we are, Kyle and I are spending our honeymoon in Florida. Weย will spend a few days in Walt Disney World, and one of those nights will be spent enjoying Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This will be our first time attending the Halloween party, & we are so excited! Because of this, I decided to try my hand at making Minnie Mouse ears. Here is my DIY version. Enjoy!

Supplies

I used my Minnie Mouse ears I bought from the parks as a template for the size of the ears. I made a circle on the foam board, then cut the circles out withย a box cutter.

I then did the same thing with the fabric I chose, again using the box cutter to cut out the shapes.

Next, I used a hot glue gun to glue the fabric to the foam board. I found that just gluing the edges instead of putting glue all over the circles makes for a smoother finish.

Using my park bought ears as a guide, I placed the ears in the correct spot on the headband. Use the hot glue to secure the ears to the band (I had really thin headbands. I suggest the thicker ones if you can find them).

ย 

Add a bow or any other details you wish, & ta-da!

I think they are really adorable, & I can’t wait to wear them in the parks!
