So, my mother has some good advice for newlyweds, which fits perfectly into Wedding Week at Life in Labels. What do I have to add to this week? Well, I’ve been to exactly one bridal shower, and it was Lauren’s. I’ve been to maybe three weddings, and they were all cousins. I was supposed to be a flower girl in my oldest cousin’s wedding, but then I got the chicken pox and missed out on my big showing as a member of the bridal party.
All I have to share are links, because I love blogs and fashion. Also, my high school best friend (and freshman year roommate) is getting married to her high school sweetheart (and subsequently, my other high school friend). When she was first engaged, I got super excited and sent her wedding blog links, and ideas for the wedding. She’s a little more chill than me (okay, a lot more chill) and so I’ve calmed down a bit in my excitement through her own calm and collected approach.
This doesn’t mean that I can’t share what I found, right?
This ring pillow is to die for.
How cute is this? These “poppers” were then given to the guests as party favors.
3. One of my favorite shows is It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It is completely off-color humor, complete with Danny DeVito as a co-star. In the show, three married couples work together, which I think is incredibly cute. These couples have had some stylish weddings, two of which were featured on Green Wedding Shoes.
Glenn and Jill Howerton (Glenn plays Dennis on the show, and Jill guest starred in the D.E.N.N.I.S. System episode) were married in a “Lucky in Love” themed wedding. Below is a photo of the cast of the show at the Howerton wedding.
For more It’s Always Sunny wedding inspiration, check out Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney (Sweet Dee and Mac) and their nature-inspired event.
4. Music is an important addition to any wedding. Personally, there will be a bluegrass band at my wedding, and I picture horrifying my Northern relatives with my Virginian taste in music. The Avett Brothers will feature heavily in my own romantic rotation (see: January Wedding). I’ve always loved the song “The Book of Love,” and one of my older cousins actually featured it in his wedding. Peter Gabriel does a beautiful version (featured in Zach Braff’s last Scrubs episode):
5. I will end with sharing my favorite J.Crack (oh, I’m sorry, I meant J.Crew…) and Anthropologie wedding dresses. I feel like no matter what I do for my own upcoming wedding to Ryan Gosling or Leonardo DiCaprio (I’m still deciding), I will be wearing a J.Crew or Anthropologie dress. Just because they’re rich, doesn’t mean I will forget my own student debt and future as a teacher.
Anthropologie recently revealed their new label, BHLDN (pronounced “Beholden”).
I’ll take one of these for my reception, please:
As for the actual ceremony? This one from J.Crew, please:
In 100 years, when I actually get married, I promise to let Life in Labels see how my opinions have or have not changed. Let’s be real, what do I know?
