Wedding Wednesday: Recent Pins + Updated Checklist.

It's my favorite (blog) day of the week! Wedding Wednesday! Today I'm showing you some of my favorite recent Pinterest finds.
Find me on Pinterest here.

How gorgeous is this sequin linen? It would be perfect for the cake table, but for $85 to rent, it's not looking like it's going to happen. :)
Hopefully you'll have someone to set up your reception space for you, rather than doing it yourself. An easy and great way to make sure things are set up as you'd like them to be is to take a picture of how you want it set up, tape it to the top of a clear bin, and place your items inside the bin. Voila! There should (hopefully) be no questions. :)
Love love love this bouquet.
Take a few minutes to do this daily.

  3. You are amazing and so organized for making such a detailed list!! I'm clapping my hands for you! haha impressed! I like the hankies question mark lol

  4. You are killing it girl! Loving that sequined table cloth, but you're right that price tag is a bit much.

  5. You are doing such a great job of marking things off your to-do list! I set attached pictures of how I wanted stuff set up and put it with all the reception items. It worked perfectly and I would definitely suggest you do that if you have a specific idea in mind.
