This Season

Cool. I was just browsing J.Crew's bridal gowns and came across this one. It's very similar to mine but a whole lot less, $395! Nice and simple, all it needs is the right accessories.

Last Season

I was jus going through some of the photos I saved during the planning of my own wedding an I came across this dress by J. Crew from last season. I wanted it so bad! The neckline and puff sleeves are to chic yet so simple, and the fabric, I love the fabric. I checked e-bay, no luck. I even considered having it reproduced by a seamstress. I definately ended up with the right one for me but I would just love to see a real bride wearing this beautiful dress.

1950's Pink Eyelet Dress

This cute little dress from Posh Girl Vintage would make a rad summer wedding dress!

You could be an "Offbeat Bride"

We still can't get enough of the "wedding porn" found at Offbeat Bride. We tune in everyday to see what Ariel has in store next, real weddings, common since advice, male flower girls. An author and offbeat bride herself, Ariel wrote the book Offbeat Bride: Taffeta-Free Alternatives for Independent Brides, part autobiography part guidebook. This website is an awesome source for endless inspiration. Even if you don't consider yourself 'offbeat' you should check it out, you might surprise yourself.

fun bridesmaids gifts

I wanted to do something extra special for my ladies for their bridesmaids gift so I had this caricature made for them.

I couldn't wait to give it to them!

The caricature was done by Melita Lewis of
She was so easy to work with, we did all of our communicating via e-mail. I couldn't have imagined for a better end product.

They loved them!

We're in The Amazing Business

Hi, I'm Whitney!

My husband John and I were married on May 31st, 2008. We were engaged for little over a year and from the moment he asked me to marry him, thoughts of wedding planning floaded my brain. Well, my wedding is over but the ideas are still flowing and I want to share!

I believe nerds make the best husbands. I'm the proud parent of a bullmastiff named Harper. I love love love interior design! I love beautiful things and sometimes not so beautiful things. I have way to many magazines. I have to limit myself to one Target trip a week or else I would go every day. I love dancing with my girlfriends, sometimes my husband. My nieces say I'm the "best aunt in the whole-wide-world", i do my best to keep it that way. I love food, eating it, looking at it, reading about it, yet I hate cooking. I really really like my computer.

I'm Jenn...

I was recently married June 28th, 2008 to Cody. Who would have thought that would actually work?!

I love music and play cello in a couple of different types of string quartets, one plays traditional classical and the other plays rock music. Through out my years i have played probably close to 150 weddings. I love crafting and being artsy. I love dancing, having company, going shopping, playing games, reading and watching movies. I also really love pictures! :) I also believe nerdy husbands are the best, espcially ones that cook! :) And i love school/office supplies!
