    Should You Do A First Look?

    modern rustic Condor's Nest Ranch Wedding | Green Ribbon Party Planning Co & Swoon by Katie

    We’ve talked about “first looks” before, but this photo from a past Condor’s Nest Ranch wedding from Swoon By Katie, makes me want to revisit the idea of first looks.

    I’m so torn.  As a bride, I really wanted to wait to see my groom, but as a blogger I totally get why it can be such a good idea.  Brides who didn’t do one swear by sticking to tradition, and brides who do look don’t regret seeing each other before the ceremony.  Photographers love them.  So who’s right?  Here’s my two cents:  Read More »

    Your Bridal Beauty Countdown

    As a member of the Style Me Pretty Contributor Network, I recently teamed up with Style Me Pretty and Invisalign® to bring you a fun and informative bridal beauty countdown feature to help you get wedding ready! Whether you’re newly engaged or have a few months to go until your wedding, I’m sharing all of the bridal beauty steps you should put into your calendar ASAP.

    I’ve shared my personal experience with Invisalign in the past. Straightening my teeth was something I wanted to do for a while, and getting engaged motivated me to do it before my wedding. What I loved so much about Invisalign was that I was straightening my teeth using a series of clear, removable aligners, so almost no one could tell I was fixing my teeth until I had visible results. By straightening my teeth with Invisalign, I also corrected my bite and gained a lot of confidence. And it gave me my best wedding day accessory – a beautiful and confident smile!
