I love, love, loveeee paper! So, therefore, I LOVE today’s post by Bride Blogger Milagros – and hope that you enjoy it just as much!
I am now just under two months from our wedding date!
And with time flying by, in what is feeling like the fastest year ever, now seems like the perfect time to talk about paper.
On July 6th, 2014 my husband and I will exchange some form of paper for our one-year anniversary, but for right now we are focused on invitations, programs, thank you notes and all the other fun and whimsical things associated with a wedding.
I had a lot of fun picking out our Save the Dates. My good friend and bridal planner tracked down the company Alexander & Company to come up with our custom vintage inspired invites. I had so much fun looking through all of their poster options – and even imagining the custom posters for kids as a great baby shower gift! But before I jump too far ahead with babies and such, back to the wedding.
There are so many options out there when it comes to great invitations, we ultimately decided to keep it simple and go for a classic style (which we found at Hitched – I swear, that place is amazing!). And while I never thought I would be a DIY bride, Paper Source has been a great resource to personalize our wedding paper with sweet little touches.
Really, you could get lost in all of the paper options out there, but the best advice I would have for other brides, is to stay true to you and not to the trends – and of course, have fun!
Hitched needs your help! Now through May 10th they will be accepting used formal dresses and accessories for Princess for a Night, which helps give underprivileged girls the prom night they’ve always dreamed of. So grab those old bridesmaids dresses and head to Hitched!
After Milagros, our bride blogger, found her dress, she had to find something for her ‘maids, too — read on for her great ideas!

Okay friends, I am going to just be honest here. I have 12 bridesmaids.
That does not include a wonderful junior bridesmaid, flower girls, and the like. So, I would venture to say we have a large bridal party, but I am sure there are some of you out there who could top my number – and for those girls, I will pray for you!
But before you start looking at etiquette books and calculating how large our wedding must be, I confess that we have thrown etiquette to the curb, and are having a moderately sized wedding with a large bridal party. We are venturing into a brave new world here.
That being said, it works for us. Our friends are fun and very easy going, so it has made for a stress free, happy experience. And personally, I am excited for the wedding day to have so much bubbly positive energy around when the girls and I all get ready together.

I’m not afraid to admit that I love bridal television shows, so you can image how excited I was to learn that Randy and his new show Randy to the Rescue will be stopping by Hitched this month to film. Appointments with Randy and the Hitched ladies begin on the 24th. Further details available here.
