All brides and grooms want their wedding guests to enjoy themselves throughout their big day. From the ceremony to the reception, couples spend months of planning to ensure that their guests are happy with their food and seating arrangements to having a night of fun away from home.
When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we knew we wanted our reception to feel like a big party because what’s more fun and memorable than a giant get-together with friends and family? And, what party isn’t complete with a variety of upbeat, fun music?!
Well it’s Monday again — and you can bet we have a dose of loveliness for all you lovelies! Yes, the summer is long gone (hello pumpkin lattes and cozy sweaters!), but that doesn’t mean we can’t still fantasize about the magic that is summer weddings. And oh, how today’s wedding is magic!
Kristi and Tim were married on the gorgeous Puget Sound waterfront in Washington state, on a city park, no less (who said park weddings can’t be beautiful, right?). Kristi’s gorgeous bridal look and their charming waterfront wedding venue makes this wedding a winner in our book. Mix in the gorgeousness captured by Blue Rose Photography, and we’re smitten!

Congratulations! You found the man, you got the ring and you’ve set a date. Now it’s time to start registering. What seems like a really fun activity to do with your groom can be a little overwhelming if you don’t do your research beforehand.
1. Keep a balanced plate
This is one of the few times in your life you get to put together a list of gifts and ask people for these gifts. While you may only want to register for top of the line everything, it’s important to include gifts at a variety of price points. Each wedding is different, but you’ll want to include some smaller items (anywhere from $5 – $25) that can be bought on their own or also bundled together to make a larger gift. Try and the majority of your gifts should be under $100-$150, but don’t feel like you can’t ask for some splurge-worthy items as well. Just make sure these are high quality items you’ll use for a long time and not just a trend that will be tossed to the side within a year.

Ah, orange. I will admit, it’s not my favorite color, but done right, this is an underrated hue that can really wow. If you’re having a fall wedding, the idea of incorporating orange into your color scheme can festive but scary. Well, even though it’s Halloween, there’s nothing to be scared of when it comes to adding splashes of orange to your wedding day! These brides did it, and each orange detail looks stunning. From the bride’s look to your groom’s attire to your wedding cake, orange is the perfect way to have a festive Halloween or fall wedding without going overboard.
