I’m dying to share pictures of the wedding, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a few of the details from our rehearsal dinner. My lovely in-laws hosted a dinner at a waterfront restaurant near our wedding venue, and it was a perfect evening filled with all of my favorite things: fragrant peonies, gold polka-dot details, and lots and lots of nautical anchor motifs! Plus an amazing view out into the shipyards where our tasty dinner was freshly caught! Oh and did I mention the world’s best family and bridal party?
Here’s my question: would it be unreasonable to buy a lobster door knocker and store it away in my closet until I someday hypothetically own my very own front door? I think my supportive blog readers will agree that no, that is in no way unreasonable (and that’s why I keep you guys around, to justify buying lobster door knockers).

Wedding planning has officially become ‘real’ — our Save The Dates have arrived from the printer! I am so lucky to have a very talented bridesmaid that custom designed our stationery suite for us. I love the black and white color scheme with just a pop of bright green that will set the tone for the rest of the wedding; and the devil is the details; we ordered monogrammed stamps to match. Can’t wait to pop them in the mail this week!
Dorothy Perkins is a site that just hopped on my radar, and I’m in love with all of the affordable, flirty Summer dresses they offer! I pulled together a few of the favorites I have on my wish list for this week’s 5 under $50. Which one is your favorite?
This week’s 5 under $50 was inspired by one of the motifs we’re using in our wedding invites — anchors! It seems like they’re the shape of the moment; they’re on just about everything! These are 5 of my favorites for bargain, plus a bonus for your home (don’t you love the bottle opener?):
Have you seen this new limited edition Chandon bottle for Summer? I’m making it my mission to find some to pop on the Fourth of July — and of course it would pair so well with a little red, white, and blue number. Peplums, stripes, and a little dash of red is a winning combination for a patriotic celebration, don’t you think?
I am absolutely horrible at keeping secrets — so the biggest challenge of wedding planning so far has been keeping wedding details under wraps, both on the blog and with friends and family. I just love talking about weddings so it’s been difficult to stop myself from sharing pictures of my wedding dress with my lovely readers! But I do have on tiny detail that I’m allowing a peek at: a gorgeous print from Scouts Honor Co that we had made to put on our guest book table. When I saw a similar sketch on the Scouts Honor Co blog, I knew it was the perfect for the wedding! (And I couldn’t help but share a picture of the packaging, isn’t it adorable?)
I’m still on a nautical kick after a weekend on the Cape, so it’s no surprise I’m enamoured with these knotty necklaces. They’re in fabulous bright colors and the texture of the rope is quite sculptural. I think the pink and orange combo would look darling layered over a summery striped tee!
