Preparing For My Big Day

Welcome to my first official blog! I write for a beauty website called, and have been blogging on their site for a few months. My older sister has a blog on blogspot called, Preppy Mama, and she has inspired me to create my very own blog. I'm an Esthetician and Make Up Artist residing in Brooklyn, NY. I met the man of my dreams and am now planning for the BIG DAY. We are getting married in October of this year, so a Fall Wedding is the main thing on my mind lately. I'm excited and overwhelmed! I thought I would enjoy this process more. I've been dreaming about being a bride since I was a little girl, but making decisions on favors, flowers, decorating and dresses is starting to wear me out. Since it is a Fall Wedding, I am obsessing over pumpkins! I plan on carving out our initials or monogram in a huge pumpkin for the wedding. I love everything monogrammed and want to tie that into the wedding, without overdoing it. Here are a few pictures of things that I just love for a fall wedding.

I love this pumpkin carving, but was also thinking of maybe just painting numbers on pumpkins for each table.

Here is another way to use pumpkins for a table decoration. I love the white pumpkins!!!

If you know of any websites or blogs that would go hand-in-hand with my wedding ideas, then please leave me a comment. I'm coming up to my 6 month mark and I don't want to fall behind on this. Next up, my Bridesmaid Dresses! I've already bought my dress, now it's time to get theirs. I'm keeping my wedding party very small and simple. I'm having my older sister as my Matron of Honor, my little sister as my Maid of Honor and my best friend as the Bridesmaid. I desperately want to get them J Crew dresses, but I have to wait for the Fall line to come out. Meanwhile, I'm searching other ideas in case we can't wait that long.

Love, Love!
