Invitation Only


Let’s talk paper. When planning a wedding, it’s obvious that there are a lot of decisions the bride needs to make. However, invitations may be one of the most important aspects to set the tone and theme of your wedding. When it comes to invitations, it isn’t just one card anymore. Stationary for the big day now includes save the dates, invitations, reply cards, reception cards, wedding programs, menu cards, place cards, and thank-you cards.

 That’s why it is important to find an invitation company that fits your personality and style, so they can help you navigate through all of the decisions! Personally, we love Couture Ink. The owner Robin, and her team, can take any theme or color palette and put together the perfect package for any wedding!

 Also, who wouldn’t want to use a company that caterers to celebrities! Check out Couture Ink featured in US Weekly!  These gorgeous menus were for Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg’s wedding and we can’t get enough, so classic and elegant!

Fight those Wedding Jitters!

It’s perfectly normal, to feel a little anxious over the guest list and choosing your vendors. Or maybe a little overwhelmed having to choose between your best friends for maid of honor! Don’t worry every bride feels the same stress! Wouldn’t it be nice if there was some one that could help you and keep you calm during these difficult decisions? Wait—there is!


Cue Rachel Mueller-Lust. She is the founder of Wondrance Weddings, and honestly we’re obsessed. Not only is she a wedding officiant, that will completely customize your ceremony, but she is a bridal coach.

Rachel will help you maintain a stress free and joyful engagement and keep your nerves at bay.

We checked out her recent blog post for a little inspiration and here are her top four tips for keeping that bridal stress away and a smile on your face!


Step 1. Watch all the wedding movies you can find. It doesn’t matter which ones you pick because any wedding movie you see is bound to have more drama than anything you are experiencing (and if not, well, I am so sorry).

Step 2. Find a friend who is not in the wedding party, preferably someone who got married recently. Ask them to listen to you vent about everything and I mean everything.

Step 3. Pick a time when no one is around and turn up the volume on your favorite music. Sing along as loud as you can, even if you can’t keep a tune—especially if you can’t keep a tune.

Step 4. Take a bubble bath. Yeah, I mean a bath with bubbles. Find a bottle of kid-style bubble bath that creates gobs and gobs of bubbles and add enough to your bath to have them overflow.”

Ahh..we are feeling better already…check her out- you’ll thank us later.

One Happy Island

The stunning country of Aruba was born from a melting pot of cultures. Such a mix is reflected in its foods, language, and festivities like Carnivale. The bright colors and the festive nature adopted from the indigenous people married well with the flavors and sensibilities of the Dutch and the Spanish, whom once occupied the region.



Located in the southern Caribbean Sea, eighteen miles off of the coast of Venezuela, Aruba’s sun filled days are perfect for leisurely sun bathing or for action packed adventures. The Aruba Tourism Authority (ATA) website, offers great ideas for lounging around the beach, scuba diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, and hiking. Then when hunger sets in after a fun filled day, check out one of Aruba’s many eclectic restaurants. Also listed by ATA are several options of where to eat categorized by cuisine. They include but are not limited to Asian, Seafood, Central/South American, Dutch-European, and North American.
