{Free Printable} Bridal Shower Bingo!

It's been a while for me to offer a Free Printable to you lovely readers, so I thought I'd do that today. This is a simple bingo card to be used at a Bridal Shower. The rules for this bingo game are for guests at your upcoming shower to fill out the squares with what they think the bride will open up-before she opens them up. Get 5 across, up/down, diagonal, and know the "ring" is the free space. First one to get 5 in a row shouts bingo and is the winner!

To download the pdf, simply click here.

Once downloaded, print at home, or transfer it to a jumpdrive/thumbdrive and take that to Staples where they can print and cut. The file is 5X7. I do offer these in my Etsy shop should you feel like customizing and changing, you can find that link here.

Thanks, and enjoy your free printable!

Not centerpieces, gowns, but comfort, your wishes, and still a color palette is in the mix, but it's not for one day, it's for every day.

{Advice} Digital or Paper Wedding Invitations: Which will you decide?

Hi, all! We have a great topic that was sent our way, that I thought was great to share with you all, especially if you're on the fence of whether or not to send actual paper invitations for your wedding events. I've actually just had this conversation with my best friend, regarding her upcoming wedding, so it's perfect timing! My BFF, she is from the US, lives in Vietnam right now, and is closing out her time there, with her soon-to-be groom, whom is from the UK. They are traveling throughout Australia, New Zealand and on into Europe before they land back in Arizona one month prior to their wedding. Sending an online invitation had crossed their mind on multiple occasions as they are planning their wedding from afar for sake of ease, and to save money.

{Real Weddings} Molly & Kyle's Rustic Shabby Chic Military Wedding

Happy Wedding Wednesday, everybody! We hope you enjoyed the long Memorial Day weekend, if you're in the US, and took some time to be thankful for our military service men and women for all that they have done and continue to do for us. I have a few people in my life that were once military, and still are, and I constantly let them know how much I appreciate what they have done for our country.

For this week's featured wedding, I felt it fitting to highlight this beautiful couple, as the dashing groom is in the US Air Force.  They also wed in Arizona, which is where I live, and so it's great to feature another local wedding, captured by Studio 616, at a very cute venue called Whispering Tree Ranch.

This wedding is full of rustic shabby chic charm, which many readers know I adore! Molly, the lovely bride,

{Advice} The Gifts You Should Be Giving

Scratching your head a bit about what to give brides and grooms at all the events leading up to the wedding? Here's some advice that was shared with us, and we are happy to pass this on to you! It's great for family and friends of the couples to read, as well the couples themselves.

When it comes to celebrating the future bride and groom in your life, finding the perfect gift can be a challenge. From engagement parties to bridal showers to the big day, you're looking for something that not only fits the occasion, but also conveys just how much you care. Though elegant and simple, steer clear of fine china, embroidered letterhead and similar overdone options. Instead of going with something traditional, opt for gifts that couples can actually use regularly, or better yet, gifts that make their lives easier or saves them money.
