5 on Friday

Happy Friday, y'all! As you're reading this, I am probably getting ready to go bridesmaid dress shopping with my girls Emily and Caitlin! I truly wish my whole bridal party could go shopping with me but am so thankful that these two gals live in Charlotte and that this is one more thing we get to check off our wedding to-do list! And quality time with some of my best friends is something I will not complain about or take for granted. Since i'm on the topic of bridesmaid dresses, let's just jump right into my 5 on Friday! I hope you enjoy!

Fact: I knew there would be hundreds of options when it came to finding my wedding dress but I mean there are thousands of options when it comes to bridesmaid dresses and I just don't know how I am going to pick out what I want my bridal party to wear! Our wedding colors are mint and gold so I pretty much knew from the beginning that I would want my ladies to wear mint green dresses. I also took into consideration that our wedding is taking place in June so shorter dresses seemed to make more sense. But as far as fabric and style I have no idea what I am going to choose so this will make for one fun shopping trip! But being the organized/planner that I am, I did pull a few ideas from Pinterest that I'll be taking with me to our appointment. Below are a few that I have in mind. What do you think?
Since I've already been talking about all things wedding related, I thought I'd continue. But don't worry, I won't carry on much longer :) Let me just take a second to say that if you haven't heard of Nancy Ray Photography then you are truly missing out. Nancy and her team are ahhh-mazing! No exaggeration. Callie (our friend and also our wedding photographer) recently took our engagement photos and sent me this blog post she wrote which includes some of the images from our engagement shoot. Be still my heart! Will and I looked at all of them together last night and had so much fun going through and picking out our favorite ones. Come back next Wednesday and I'll have a post dedicated to all the ones we can't help but share!

Since I mentioned Callie once, I'll mention her just one more time and tell you to go check out her new blog; Call Me Callie! Callie recently decided to start a blog as a way for others to get to know her better, share wedding planning tips, traveling adventures, style and MUCH more. With her new blog launch, Callie also has an awesome giveaway too! You'd be silly if you didn't go and enter to win. I personally have my eyes on the jewelry box from Anthropologie...
Last week I came across this blog post which talks about ways to come up with new blog ideas. I'm not going to lie and say that I've never found myself running in circles trying to come up with new ideas for blog posts before and found that this post was very helpful!
The secret to a gazillion blog post ideas
If you are OCD an organized person, like to be detail oriented, or need help figuring out how to keep everything in order then this post that Carly from The College Prepster did on how she organizes her life is right up your alley. Knowing that Carly uses the same program that I do to stay organized made me feel on top of things. I mean...do you follow Carly? She is the bomb.


  1. Ok, I am loving everything in this post! Mint/gold is one of my all-time favorite color combos, so I'm sure your ladies will look beautiful in whatever you choose. Looking forward to checking out Callie's blog (that giveaway is fantastic!) and also reading that post about blog ideas...because let's face it, we all have moments where we need a little extra inspiration!

  2. Ok I love the 1st & 3rd dresses the most… and can't wait to see the rest of your photos!! Have a fab weekend :)

  4. I love all the bridesmaid dress. My favorite is the second one. There are so many cute ones out there! You will find the right one for all your girls! A piece of advice, make sure that it's something they could wear again.


  5. I love reading Carly's blog too. I am reading the post about blog posts now (if that makes any sense). Hope you have a great weekend!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
