oops! Forgot one I found earlier!

ps: Does anyone know why you can’t register at Ikea? Lame.

Here are some gorgeous photos of real weddings. Breathtaking. I especially love the combos of green and purple. It will probably be a common trend from here on out (hint, hint).

The branches in the bouquet are stunning. And look at the stem wrapping! Swoon.

I am also really loving the idea of having small mismatched vases with small flowers on the tables as centerpieces. They aren’t to tall to inhibit conversation and they have that crafty elegance I’m planning.

I just may have become obsessed with other wedding sites. I feel my at-work design productivity slowing down. Like molasses on a cold day.

One find today: Glorious color palettes at the Inspired Bride. B-e-a-utiful combos in gorgeously designed packaging.


I know, right? I may be swooning just a bit …


oh the places we’ll go

As Christmas is winding down and before we get to the new year celebrations (go bearcats!), we’ve had some time to think about early plans. It appears as if we are definitely going ahead with the late October date, despite worries about it being too short of a time to plan.

Have no fear!

Yesterday morning I spent awhile going through a planning timeline I found in the Real Simple wedding issue (gorgeous design by the way). I converted their time line into a month-by-month goal list for E and I to follow. Though it is a bit daunting (not to mention we need to find a place to live at the same time!) I think it is manageable now that we have a guide. January is a pretty easy month, mostly just finalizing bridal party selections and beginning guest lists and establishing what ind of look and feel you want. Can’t you tell that last part is the designer’s paradise?

There is one important job we have to take care of this month.


That’s the hard one, isn’t it. So many variables. Outside. Inside. Church. Traditional. Casual. Contracted vendors. Costs.

Location, location, location.

At this point, we have two contenders for the ceremony and reception locales in Cincinnati. Both will do both the ceremony and reception (either inside or outside should the weather cooperate) and both are local landmarks. Neither are what one would call traditional, though both are breathtaking and will require little to no extra decorating. After meetings this week and next, hopefully we’ll have a better idea and I won’t feel so overwhelmed by all the decision factors currently running marathons over and over again in my brain.

Of course I’ve started to think about all things design and I’m thinking a cute design theme would be to use initials everywhere, like invitations with “kt + e” really prominent. And some nice floral or vine-y illustrations. Thoughts?


hi all!

Welcome to Katie and Eric’s wedding blog. I have some big plans for this baby!

I thought this would be a great way for us to chronicle our months before the big day, as well as serve as a planning tool. Eventually registries and and event details and all that fun stuff will be here; kind of a one-stop shop for any and all who will be joining us in our celebration.

My hope is that both Eric and I will contribute as authors so we can both lend our insights and opinions and complaints and stories, giving everyone else (and each other) some laughs along the way. Look around, stay while!


Where Am I?
