Charlotte Wedding Insider

Charlotte brides, you don’t want to miss what’s happening tonight! A panel of top professionals will be answering all of YOUR questions about your big day. It’s the kind of thing you just HAVE to go to… where else can you get free advice on photographers and videographers? (Do you need them?) or what about the food? (Can you skimp anywhere?). What about renting your decor instead of buying it all (good or bad idea?). Come out tonight to find out – and have drinks and appetizers on Carolina Bride. No need to RSVP, just show up and bring a pal (or all of your bridesmaids!) if you’d like. It’s sure to be a good time!

Southern Weddings

What better way to get ideas for my own southern wedding than to attend a Southern Weddings party? As a lover of love + weddings, I have been reading the blog for sometime and pinning away ideas.

I jumped on the opportunity to attend their launch party with my best gals thinking it would be fun to mix & mingle with amazing local vendors!

My girls and I road-tripped it to Chapel Hill and stayed at the Carolina Inn on Thursday night. Everyone wore their Sunday best to the party – although somehow Liz & I missed the “wear-all-black” memo. We were enchanted by the sweet potato bar, mini desserts and of course, the tower of Cheerwine!

It was such a fun evening! And we got to meet one of the folks of Blueberry Fusion who had their photos featured in Southern Weddings. Hoping my soon to be sister-in-law will use their services when she and her beau get hitched! It was a fun little soiree to attend before a night of fun in downtown Chapel Hill with my very best friends (minus Amy, who I wish could have been there!). And on Friday we went bridesmaid dress and wedding gown shopping… because not only am I engaged but Mandy is too!
I think we found some real winners for the bridesmaid dresses but I’m still undecided on my gown. Although Mecklenburg Bridal just called to say they’re having a black Friday sale and it’s 15% off. I’m such a sucker for a sale!

On this Thanksgiving week, I’d just like to say how thankful I am for such amazing and supportive friends and family. Feeling very lucky!

P.S.  I promise not to watch any war movies in the week before the wedding!
