Just found your blog via Jillian! So pretty over here. I'm your newest follower. :)

P.S. That leaf headband is beautiful. Looks much more expensive than $22.

Aw, you guys are making me feel all kinds of nostalgic about my own wedding! I loved picking out gifts for them - it was too easy. I got them all a MapTote wine tote with Napa Valley on it since that's where we got married and then I stuff random things that fit each personality inside. I may have had too much fun with it :)

Jacque said...

The bridesmaid brunch is such a great idea - I think a lot of brides kind of forget about it! But these pictures are so pretty, and the mini pancakes look delicious, I'll remember this for when I get married (way way down the road!)

After a wedding ceremony has taken place, the new couple will invite family and friends to drinks and food as they receive them in a party meant to celebrate the big occasion. This is referred to as a wedding reception. A wedding reception is a special time where people can all relax and have fun as they celebrate the marriage of two people.
