Honeymoon: Coco Plum Island Resort Belize

I have been MIA lately because we have been in a tropical island paradise enjoying our honeymoon. We went to Coco Plum Island Resort; a private, adults-only, 18 cabana beautiful island about 9 miles off the coast of Dangriga, Belize. It was like being in heaven, or at least how I envision my heaven would…

Invitations Are Officially Out

We sent all of our invites a couple weeks ago and have started receiving reply cards, although not as many as I’d like to see! We spent a lot of time on these and was so so so happy to have amazing contacts in my life to help make these for practically nothing! We originally started…

Signature Wedding Cocktail

We threw around the idea of a signature cocktail and I thought, “Why not make a purple drink to match our wedding color and call it Purple Haze since we both love Jimi Hendrix!” Of course Ben was totally on board. So we turned to our bartender to give some suggestions. We decided the easiest…

Bachelorette Plans Are Set!

After some drama surrounding the bachelorette planning, it is finally locked and we are going to Paradise Island Bahamas! I’m so excited to lay on the beach and relax or sit at the swim-up bar! There will be seven of my closest friends and family and I’m sure it will be awesome. We are staying…

Wedding Planning Tip of the Week: Check Reviews

This is came up because I read a recent article in the news about a photography company not delivering what they promised to a bride here in Palm Beach County. I would be devastated! But what caught my eye was the fact that I reached out to this photographer and talked to her about wedding…

Wedding Planning Tip of the Week

If you have plenty of time to plan your wedding, like about a year, don’t be in too much of a hurry to make decisions in the beginning. I probably had our entire day planned (in my head) only 2 months after getting engaged. Ben and I talked about some of my ideas and he…

The Dreaded Wedding Dress Shopping

Brides-to-be love the dress shopping part of wedding planning, right? Well not this bride! Honestly, there’s nothing about that whole experience that excites me. I’m a frugal shopper so the cost of a dress alone really pisses me off! What makes that big, long, uncomfortable, white dress cost thousands of dollars, but yet beautiful ballgowns…

Wedding Planning Tip of the Week

The more you get into planning, the more learn (obviously!). But wouldn’t you like to skip the learning curve and just get all the little tips and know-hows up front? I wish I had… So I’ve decided each week, I’ll post my helpful tip. It may be one that’s obvious or one you would have…

Marriage Prep Class

WARNING: This is a long post about a horrible experience… Because we are getting married in the Catholic Church, they require us to take a marriage prep class; specifically one through the church in our diocese. We ended up at St. Joan of Arc in Boca Raton. I was not happy about this class because…

Wedding Save-the-Date

Since we have already had our engagement shoot, we are ready to send out our save-the-dates. If you didn’t get a chance to check out my post about the shoot, we did two outfits: one nice and one wearing our sports team’s apparel. I had the most brilliant idea for our STD. Granted I can’t…

Zola.com Wedding Registry Switch

I posted about our nightmare trying to get our money from Wanderable.com after our engagement party. We ended up switching to Zola.com. My friend that’s getting married this year recommended it and said she had already transferred money with no issue. After some research, I noticed their fees are THE lowest of any honeymoon registry…

Wanderable Wedding Registry Fail

So after I posted the honeymoon registry blog about all the research I did, we ended up going with Wanderable. We had it all set up and it looked beautiful. We even received 4 gifts from friends and family. We were so excited at how easy it was to use! UNTIL… we tried to withdraw…
