How We Kept Our Wedding as Green as Possible.

Another wedding post! Sorry, but folks have been asking me to spill the details a la People Magazine. Well, maybe not THAT trashy, but apparently, wedding details are popular topics of discussion. I was at a lunch with two tables full of insanely smart and talented women last week, and somehow most of the...

Wedding wrap-up part one: it was perfect.

Our wedding was perfect. I don’t remember much of it, as I was assured I wouldn’t. Also, people told me I wouldn’t eat for all the flitting and fleeting. They were right, though I did manage to score a pile of fried macaroni & cheese balls at the end of the night (kudos to...

Let Me Eat Cake! (The 2nd Best Part of Wedding Planning)

Newleyweds will tell you that one of the best parts of planning your wedding is choosing your cake-baker. David and I heard stories of tastings and flavors and bizarre bakers, but all of those stories ended with hours and hours of eating cake. I mean, eating cake … what else should a princess do...

Is it Crazy to Grow my Own Wedding Flowers?

In case you don’t have reason enough to think me crazy, here’s one more. I am growing my own wedding flowers. I know, I know, there are so many variables that could go wrong here, causing floodgates of tears to open. But I don’t think like that. I’ve got a yard full of glorious...

Advanced Wedding Lessons – Survival of the Fittest

***Cheesy Love Alert*** Also, no good jokes. As we head into the final few days before the big day, I feel like I’m learning stuff so fast that I can begin to teach some advanced classes.  There have been so many lessons in the last few days that I’m keeping them for the book...

Louisville Sisters Making Gorgeous Upcycled Vintage Jewelry … or “How in the world will I accessorize on my wedding day?”

Louisville Sisters Making Gorgeous Upcycled Vintage Jewelry … or “How in the world will I accessorize on my wedding day?”

It’s funny, but the one traditional thing I’ve had trouble with finding for the wedding is “Something New.” Borrowed, blue, and old, is no problem for an environmentally-obsessed budget bride, but new? Almost impossible. In that spirit/quest, last week’s Diamond blog was meant to be a blog about my favorite local jewelry-maker, but, as...

Diamonds are a Girl’s Guilty Pleasure.

July 13, 2011

The night I met my fiancé, I was wearing about eighty-thousand dollars worth of diamonds. It was the 2006 Best of Louisville Awards Show, complete with a red-carpet arrival and an array of Louisville celebrities. My friend Tim Krekel and I were there to perform a song together, as well as to say, “And...

It’s no Alexander McQueen, but I’ve got a Gorgeous Wedding Dress…

I haven’t been hounded like Princess Kate, but I’ve gotten more than a few inquiries about my wedding dress. It’s not surprising, considering what a fashion icon I am. I mean, wear do you think Taylor Swift got the idea of a dress and cowboy boots? (See picture: I am two, clearly ahead of...

Hen Parties (aka Bachelorette), Louisville-style.

July 10, 2011

When David and I hopped a flight from Glasgow to Belfast last year, we noticed the rest of the plane was filled with groups of women. They were distinctly defined groups, separated by their different t-shirts. Some t-shirts were black tanks with sparkly silver lettering that read “Jane’s Hen Party 2011.” Others were pink...

Bachelor Party Extravaganza!!!

We’re back into full-on wedding mode.  We took a little break from planning…a little too long of a break maybe.  We’re now in the homestretch of the final details.  Brigid loves details, and I prefer to just assume that they will take care of themselves.  Needless to say my reassurance that as long as she...
