You guys are ready for spring, aren’t you? I know I am, and I live somewhere that saw 70-degree-plus weather last week. So while we wait for the blooms to rise from the frozen ground, how about we just pretend that patio-drinking weather is right around the corner? These gorgeous frocks, all under $60, evoke a considerably brighter, cheerier season ahead.

    These summer nights sitting under twinkly lights at the local watering hole, kicking back with my favorite people and basking in the love and friendship around me had me majorly inspired to dream up a pretty backyard wedding inspiration board. A beautiful, light gown paired with muted and understated earrings and a simple headband. Eclectic table accents include a sparkly runner and a lacy blue runner to highlight the varied tableware patterns and colorful glassware with proper amount of gold and color to delight and luxuriate.

    Broke-Ass Hacks:

    Varied and gorgeous serveware and dishes can often be found for uber cheap at thrift or secondhand stores, and you can re-donate when you’re done. The table runners and paper lanterns easily translate into home decor items … or you can pass them on to a bride you know who would enjoy them for her wedding.

    It’s rare that one dress embodies everything a bride wants in her wedding gown. Often we’re split between many options because of small details. Jane, on the other hand, knows exactly what she wants, but it’s twice her budget. I would be SO grateful if you would use your amazing dress-finding skills to help me out with a sudden and major case of CAI/GOI: I…

    Krista definitely deserves an amazing dress for her big day, but her budget is keeping her from living the couture dream. Hi.  I'm a mom. I put my wedding on hold for almost three years because our son is a regular at sick kids’ hospital and my fiancé and I wanted to focus on him and his health and put everything else on the backburner. Now that he…

Looking for an elopement dress idea for San Francisco City Hall June 2013. I wear size 14 in bridal gowns, I'm pear shaped, and I want something long, romantic, and unique. I…

    This week’s request is particularly special – well, for me. It comes from an adopted little sister of mine. Leann is my high school boyfriend’s little sister. I still picture her as a girl in middle school, despite the fact that she's a beautiful, independent woman now. She knows she can ask me for help anytime. This week, I got a request from her via…
