Festive Friday: A Valentine's Day Inspired Wedding

Friday, February 1, 2013

Welcome to the 1st day of February! For me, that means 17 more days (or less) till I meet my lil' him or her! Yes, yes y'all, I will be a mama of three very, very soon! With V-day around the corner, I thought it'd be fitting to do a red and pink post. It's funny how our mind attaches colors to certain months: red, white and blue for July, red and green for December, orange for October etc. I didn't intend to make Fridays color themed days but it's just the way it worked out this time, hope you're still with me :) I'm not sure how it's been for you, but i've found it to be a little disheartening when googling images with words like: red and pink wedding and getting all these pop ups of cheesy, super-matchy collages. Oftentimes simplicity is where it's at; a pop of color here and there, rather than looking like you raided party city or the dollar store LOL. I gathered a few images to share with you that inspired me and hope it brightens up your day too!
