You know when you are packing for a trip and you go through literally your entire house and you say “Well, I hope I didn’t forget anything”? That is what this blog is about. On your wedding day, you are bound to need something that you will find you somehow don’t have, even though you packed literally your entire closet. It’s not your fault, you’ve got a lot on your mind, but we’ve got your back.

Picking the right dress isn’t just about what you love. It...

Our last name. We’ve had it our whole lives and then one day…BOOM, just like that we are expected to change it. We fall in love and we begin to create a list of dreams where we would like to live, how many kids we want to have and how we envision our lives to be. So many changes are about to happen, so we have to lose our last name too? Truth be told…we don’t. But truth also be told, we can if we want to.

Decades ago, it wasn’t really an option to keep our maiden name. Women who did (in the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s)  were considered radical feminists. Why WOULDN’T you want to take on your husband’s nam...
