A hairstyle can easily go from drab to fab with the right accessories, and wedding hair is no different. However, you don’t always need to shell out a lot of money to get elegant, gorgeous pieces to glam up your hair. … read more
I’ve gotten to the point where nothing planning related feels as good as checking something off my list. And I just knocked off a big (at least for me) one—I nailed down my bridal accessories.
If you read my post on accessories from a while back, you know I was seriously waffling about what to get. But at this point, I’ve got it nailed down…and I’m thrilled with the final look.
I ended up deciding to mix gold with pearls on my accessories—and even though the actual rings are silver (remember how pretty they are?!?) I think it’ll work. Of course, I don’t have a picture of my final “bridal look” on me…but as a refresher, here’s what I’m doing.

Hive, I’ve been delaying writing this because I just can’t believe this is my final Weddingbee post. I’m having trouble finding the right words to express what the ‘Bee has meant to me. What better way to say goodbye than doing a sort of twist on the Bee’s Life and Secret Life of Bees series!?
Probably Google, honestly. I’m sure I searched something generic like “wedding decor ideas” and a post from the boards came up. I’ve loved weddings for a really long time, and once I found Weddingbee I was hooked. All the ladies blogging were so charming and real. I loved reading about their actual experiences, both the joys and struggles.
Greetings and salutations, hive! I’ve really missed you. I am alive and recovering from the madness of wedding/honeymoon/a hellish couple of weeks at work…and ready to begin those recaps!!
When I first started blogging, I thought I would be raring to go on recap posts…but I got the full collection of my high-res professional photos about a week ago and found myself totally overwhelmed. How to describe such days? How to wade through photos in such numbers?! It’s intimidating, to say the least.
By the time your big day rolls around, chances are your bridesmaids have already spent a significant amount of cash on preparations. Instead of asking them to shell out for another wedding-related accessory, treat them to their very own customized floral headband, which you can make yourself using just a few scraps of fabric.
