Five Favorites: My Wedding

So with all this wedding talk in my life I thought that it would be fun to show what my five favorites might be if I were getting married.

I strive to not pretend to plan my non {currently} existent wedding and get nailed down to details so as to guard my heart and let the Lord plan my life, however there are a few things that I know I want.  Without further ado....


This goes without saying but I want to marry a man who I can travel to heaven with.  One who I can love, honor and obey.  One who will love me till death do us part.  A guy who will be the father of my children.  A man who I want to wake up to every morning.  One who will help me become a better woman.  Yeah, I want that guy.  


This ring.  I love how the engagement and wedding ring come together.

You know coffee had to come into play at some point?  Can't imagine a better a wedding favor.


My mom bought her wedding dress justifying the splurge by saying a daughter could wear it.  I am not decided if I would do some altering and wear the dress or incorporate pieces of the dress into my wedding day attire.  I couldn't get a good picture of it but here is the best I could do. 


  1. So fun! I love good wedding ideas! I might have to steal your coffee one for my sister someday!

  2. Have you ever seen that show on TLC - Something Borrowed, Something New? They take the mother of the bride's old wedding dress and alter it after talking with the bride about her style and tastes. While they are doing that, the bride shops for a new gown. Afterwards, she tries on the old altered gown and has to decide which one she wants to wear. I get a kick out of seeing all the really amazing things they can do with old dresses but at the same time, I'm sure the mother is mortified because what if her daughter doesn't choose her dress and now it's completely altered?!!!!

    Your mom's dress is beautiful, by the way.
