I Love Fall

Ah, these are the potential wedding months: September and October. The temperature is comfortable and cool, there are strips of orange on the boughs of green trees like a streak of grey at your temple. This is my favorite time of year. It's not quite Halloween or Thanksgiving, but I'm starting to think of the holidays and my family. I'm taking Andrew to New York at Thanksgiving to meet my extended family for the first time! It's going to be rad. Everyday there is an air of harvest and celebration in the air, and it just feels right. This is the time of year we should be married.

Fall Color Palette

A few lovely examples from Design*Sponge. While I'm not super keen on the idea of a "theme" per se, these just make me feel festive. Drink it in...

Officiant Update

One of my co-workers who got married in Milwaukee told me that she had a friend get ordained online and perform her ceremony. This is good news for all of you who want to go this route!

Tiny Top Hats! Yes!

Okay, so, as I've mentioned before I really like hats. I am also not wearing your traditional long veil so I am seriously interested in alternative hairpieces. I've been seeing a lot of brides in tiny hats and I LOVE THEM!!! I've scoured the internet for affordable milliners, but the ones I like the most are a pretty penny. Side note: for the longest time I thought a hat maker was a haberdasher. Come to find out that's someone who makes men's clothing. A milliner is a hat maker, but haberdashery is so much fun to say.
Anyway, this tiny top hat tutorial made its way onto Offbeat Bride the other day. Thanks, Offbeat Bride, for being so awesome. I have no idea if I'm a tiny top hat lady or not, but we'll just have to find out now won't we. I suppose I could always alter the pattern a little to come closer to these other beauties I've found. I mean, come on....

Yes, please. Can you stand how awesome this is?!

And this one! I am in love!
All photos from the exquisite Jane Taylor Millinery in the UK. I may just have to buy one in the end. I'm drooling over that first comma hat. Maybe not in black, though.
