I'm getting back into the swing of things now, so my blogging frequency should pick up again in the next few weeks. We have a really fun wedding this weekend- very backyard elegance with pies instead of wedding cake and strawberry centerpieces- so I'm looking forward to that. Hope all is well and welcome to summertime!
(Want to see more photos of baby Evie? The lovely Lindsay DeDario did her newborn shoot, and she blogged about it here. Check it out!)

This video outlines the wedding day timeline for William and Kate's wedding- what a long day they have planned! Their planners must be starting the day at like 3 am, that's one stressful workday. Stay tuned for a post on how to create your own wedding day timeline.

In other celebrity wedding gown news, Jessica Simpson has said that she's going to be a part of designing her own wedding dress for her upcoming nuptials to Eric Johnson. I so want her to succeed and be happy now, you know what I mean? Yes, she's made mistakes, but I feel like it's time for her to really be herself and settled. Anyway, they haven't set a date yet, but it makes sense that she would want to help design her gown, since she's been successful in the fashion world already. I hope she goes a little more out of the box than her dress when she married Nick Lachey- their wedding was beautiful, but in a very traditional way. Can't wait to see what she comes up with!
And of course, we're all dying to see Kate Middleton's choice for the big Royal Wedding. I'll probably (god, I hope so) have my baby girl by then, so I fully intend to snuggle all day on the couch with her watching the proceedings. :) Again, the details are being very heavily guarded, but at least we can be sure that we'll get our fill of everything eventually!
Got any favorite celebrity brides/weddings? We'll be talking about "movie weddings" next (inspired by Sweet Home Alabama)!

Another fun thing about his collection is that he offers many shorter dresses- this is the Audrey.
Oh if only I could have another wedding (to my husband of course!), I would definitely get one of these dresses. And since they range in price from $970-$2700, I could actually afford one! Tell us about your favorite wedding designer- or your dream dress!

It was suggested by our friend Lindsay DeDario that we share our thoughts on the wedding plans, and while doing some research I found some interesting info on the dress code for the royal wedding. So I'm going to go on a little fashion tangent that's not exactly important to the wedding plans, but I still think is interesting.
Why don't we wear hats anymore?? Hats are SO fun, such a unique way to take a usual outfit and make it your own. The British have maintained the hat-wearing tradition, and I applaud this. As part of the dress code for Kate and Will's wedding is "a morning coat" which translates for women to a dress (often with matching coat) that is in between formal and business wear. AND some glorious hats. :)
Kate is a big fan of hats, this one above was designed specifically for her by milliner Phillip Treacy. She has also commissioned him to design custom hats for some of her guests- how fun!

Yes, not quite the same as that awesome headshot photo up top (props to Lindsay DeDario for our photos!), but what do you expect for 7 months pregnant? :) Eric takes a photo of me every week on Mondays, to document my growing belly. You can check them all out on my personal blog, The Baby Roy.
So, those are the highlights for now... stay tuned for more glimpses into the life of me, as well as some posts from my partner Julie- which I will have her write and then I'll post on the blog, because I'm the techy one. ;)

Signs can be both practical and beautiful- a creative way to extend the theme of your wedding, while getting the job done of directing your guests. Here's the low-down on ways to use signs for your wedding day.
Outdoor wedding locations often benefit from signs to direct guests where to go. Use them to point your guests towards the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and more. Having a rustic, beachy theme? Use driftwood and white paint to evoke the seaside. Simple woodsy charm more your style? Have your stationary company design signs incorporating your wedding flowers or other symbol.
Chalkboards are all the rage on the wedding scene these days- they fit with a variety of wedding themes and locations- from farms to wineries. Use a chalkboard to tell guests which table their sitting at, what the menu is for the evening, or as a fun prop that guests can personalize in a photo booth!
Fancy, personalized signage can add to the elegance and feel of your glamourous wedding. Use signs to let guests know about your signature drink at the bar, or to instruct them to take a favor home at the end of the evening. Signs can designed to fit any theme- I love the one in the lower righthand corner above that looks like an old-style movie poster! It's subtle enough not to be tacky, while still evoking a specific style.
Graphic designers are geniuses these days, with all kinds of technology at their fingertips and all kinds of creativity in their heads. So go crazy with signs- we love them!

Food: One of the most fun ways to make your wedding rustic chic is through the food you choose to serve. Instead of the standard "steak or chicken" choices, consider homestyle fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, and other home-cooking specialities. Consider using local vendors to provide homemade goods- and serve iced tea and lemonade to cool your guests during the ceremony. And for dessert? One of the biggest trends we've seen for wedding dessert is PIE! Having a buffet of different-flavored pies can definitely remind your guests of being down on the farm- while still being delicious!

However, we feel that it is important that you click with vendors like your photographer or wedding planner(s). Why? Well, you probably WILL spend hours pouring over details with them! Plus you spend your entire wedding day with them by your side. And wouldn't it be more fun if you actually liked them? And wouldn't it be easier to hand the reigns of your big day over to someone you respected and trusted and knew that they just "got" you? We think so too. :) And while a face-to-face meeting can never be replaced, a blog is a little slice of personality, and maybe this blog will help a bride out there get to know us better as she's searching for help to make her wedding day perfect and stress-free. If that's you- hello bride! This is us.
It was bit windy the day we did our photo shoot- made for some fun hair situations. :) Stay tuned for more one-on-one, up close and personal chatter from both myself (Liane) and my partner Julie. And tell us what you think- is it important to "click" personally with your wedding vendors?
