Why you love your job:
That’s easy—I work with some of the funniest, most generous, and talented people on the planet. Plus, I get to look at and write about weddings for a living. It’s wonderful.
Fun facts about you:
Well, I love being a wife and a mom! Other than that, there’s a good chance you’ll find me: pining for a hedgehog, hiking, growing some sort of exotic plant, accumulating cute bags, or perusing antique stores.
Three Save the Date trends I’m loving:
- Floral patterns: With an affinity for the natural world, I love the new spins on floral designs—from the soft sweetness of a watercolor wash, to those big, bold digital blooms.
- Simple Elegance: I’m just crazy for unfussy yet sophisticated looks—regardless of wedding style. Simple design flourishes, monograms and classic patterns can all be used for creating a look that’s clean, uncomplicated yet stunning all the same.
- Vintage Chic: What’s old is new again. It’s no wonder that the Photo Booth style continues to be one of our most popular Save the Date types. Marrying an updated version to a blast from the past can be so charming and for sure, memorable. Think … mixing and matching retro patterns like polka dots and stripes, to incorporating classic elements from another era. And what’s hot right now? The look and feel of the 1920’s and 30’s.
Advice for brides: Invest in your marriage as the wedding is but one day. Stay organized throughout planning so that you can enjoy every minute of your engagement. And thirdly, forgive easily.
