Country weddings are not tacky! They used to be a little run of the mill but that was ages ago before pinterest and insanely creative people like Kelly and Jeremy. Thier wedding, featured at Rustic Wedding Chic, makes me wish I had gone a little more country! I love the mason jar lights. They are beautiful and the wood signs are really creative too.

The single biggest decision about your wedding day is where to actually have it! So many choices… you can do a destination wedding or stay local. No matter what you decide you’ll have to pick a venue and you’ll want it to be absolutely perfect. If you got the bucks you can just copy the A-listers and have your wedding in the same place as them. You better be patient though or VERY flexible. Some of these places have wait lists of multiple YEARS for summer dates. Check them all out. Wow! So beautiful!

What is it about personalized jewelry? It’s awesome, that’s what it is! The people at 17 Apart made their own fingerprint rings and they gave us a step-by-step on how they did it too. Now I want one! I have seen some fingerprint jewelry before but it doesn’t belong to anyone that I love. How much more special will it be if it is?
