From the bride... When Philip and I got engaged, I had no clue what I wanted our wedding to be like. After doing my due diligence via blogs and magazines, I decided on the theme of "romantic, sweet and classic." Our most important task was finding the right vendors and after that, it all came together nicely. We chose the soft colors of champagne and blush to set the romantic mood. We then picked out the sweetest flowers we could think of, including hydrangeas, peonies, ranunculus and roses. We also decorated the reception using numerous candles to complement our flowers. We had a great planner at Arlington Hall who assisted us with the details of table linens, rentals, and picking out delicious food. We also landed gorgeous letterpress invitations from SmallPrinter on Etsy. At the beginning of the planning process, I didn't care much about my invitations, but after designing them with SmallPrinter, they turned out to be one of my favorite details of the wedding! Finding my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses may have been the most difficult part of planning. I wanted a dress that was unique but still classic and romantic. After looking at every store in Dallas, I finally landed on the Jim Hjelm dress. I knew it was just perfect. Based on my dress, I found beautiful champagne bridesmaids dresses that fit our wedding look perfectly.

Finally, we wanted to send our guests off with sweet treats. Philip and I got engaged in Paris, so we wanted to give a nod to Paris without overdoing it. We ordered wholesale muslin bags online and bought some Paris-themed stamps to decorate with. We filled them with pink and white pretzels to make a pretty favor. We also made the ribbon sticks with blush, champagne and white ribbon for guests to wave as we made our exit. Philip and I literally planned the whole wedding together, beginning to end. All of our hard work made the night so much sweeter to us, and we still get giddy thinking about how perfect the day was with our family, friends, and each other.
