wanderable. a honeymoon registry


I have spent a large number of hours thinking about registries. I have friends who have gotten married who have loved them, and then I had the friends that hated everything about the registry process (sad face). But more, I hear my mother’s voice in my head, “if you buy that now, what are you going to register for one day?”

Mom. I found the answer.

World, meet Wanderable. A honeymoon registry that is both functional AND pretty. It’s a designers dream, you can have your cake and a vacation too. Per the Wanderable site:  “Similar to a traditional gift registry, couples create honeymoon registries and list items that they would like to have for their honeymoon. Items can range from general requests, such as transportation, lodgings, and special meals, to more specific requests for particular tours and activities. Guests can contribute to the couple’s honeymoon memories by sending monetary gifts for specific items. An increasing number of newlyweds now have all the housewares that they need, so a honeymoon registry is the perfect way to start off their life together!

For  the number of friends I know on the verge of marriage, well…you’re welcome.

little girls = flower girls

My love of tulle is clearly not unknown. My love of small children who find it entertaining when I sing and dance around like a crazy person, also not shocking. Combining cute children and tulle…well it normally equals ballet. Expect now.

Tulle + Child = Flower Girl.

And in my world, that is a recipe for success. Amazing, adorable photo success.

mae mae paperie, spring ’12

Recently I was asked for a few vendor references for wedding invitations and the first on my list was Mae Mae Paperie. I was even more thrilled to see the new spring line by fantabulous paper stylist Megan Gonzalez, so I decided to share a few of my favorites.

The HermieI love it. I will admit that I love it for the reason most men would reject it, the pink. They are stylish, fancy and will fit that wedding that you’ve been planning since the age of twelve.



Having a wedding where you get to be barefoot on a beach with your best friends and family? Then maybe the Roxy is for you. Classy, yet simple and beautifully designed.


Lastly (but definitely not least…and maybe my favorite), the Marlowe. The modern 1950s appearance of the Marlowe just sets my mind a float with a million and one decor ideas to match the invitations. It also makes me think that this is the design to use if you are having a wedding at my favorite Palm Springs location, The Ace Hotel.

I love them all so much and wish I had enough events on the calendar to have to use them all. Which one would you choose?

wedding wednesdays: pink inspirations

pink wedding inspiration board

Spring is here and in DC that means the Cherry Blossoms are blooming, which brings to mind my favorite thing…the color pink. We are now into the season where bright colors come back into play for weddings and other such events. So, in honor of the occasion, I pulled a few of my favorite pops of pink together into a delightful spring inspiration board. Enjoy.

All the little bits:

Fantastic pink invites from Alee and Press via 100 Layer Cake; tulle skirt by Ouma via Mindy Weiss; pink/bright tablescape by Amy Osaba via Southern Weddings.

wedding wednesday: flower power


Spring is pretty much here and with it comes my allergies, I mean, beautiful flowers emerging. So, as I was browsing one of my many pinboards today, I stumble across some of my favorite bouquets from weddings featured on some of my favorite wedding blogs. I couldn’t help but share. Nothing like flowers to make you sneeze, I mean…smile.
