Happy New Year! 

We’re getting this one on a canvas for our living room

Loved having LIVE music at our reception!

20 years of friendship!
It feels so great to be back on the blog. I left off planning my wedding and as you can see. The wedding has come and gone and now I’m in full duties of wifehood. Looking forward to being a bridesmaid for two weddings this year as well as a guest in two other weddings, so look out for more wedding posts coming your way. Miguel and I will also be visiting our families in Puerto Rico (this October) god willing, for a family destination wedding. Our first ever! So exciting! 2016 made me an  aunt to a special little boy, Brendan, and I will soon be an aunt this year as my brother Daniel and his wife Lauren are expecting in April. Did someone say expecting? No! Not me, I have about 5 friends that are going to be mommies this year and I’m super excited for all the baby showers.

In addition to all the wedding updates, I’ll be making some changes on the blog by turning it into a lifestyle blog rather than just weddings and parties. It’s something I’m very passionate about. I hope to create exciting content for you. I’m already mapping out the posts. It will be a simple Tuesday and Thursday deal with once in a blue Fridays! I hope you will continue to take this journey with me where I can voice my passions, likes, loves and interests.

Before I let you go, I just want to wish you all great success and much happiness in 2017. I’ve seen a lot of people speaking out about 2016 being the year of many trials and tribulations, but for me it was such an awesome year. My favorite memory was of course, marrying the love of my life my husband, Miguel. Check out some of our amazing wedding photos above! I’ll see you all next week


Hottest New Trend- Crop Wedding Gowns?

Crop tops were one of the hottest trends of 2013 and they are finding their way into our new year in full bloom. I’m in love with the Kardashian style- crop top with a midi/ high wasted skirt- so “modern sexy.” Next month I”ll be celebrating my last birthday of my twenties and as I’m mentally thinking about the fabulous outfit that I want to wear, I wondered if there was such a thing as crop wedding gowns? To my surprise there are a bunch! I just couldn’t help resist but to share them with you all. Check out some of the different styles below. Most of these dresses are new collections emerging here in 2014!

This Houghton Wedding Gown is from their winter 2014 collection and was featured in Weddings Unveiled. You can actually try it on if you live in the Boston area- Houghton is having a trunk show this weekend only at Ceremony Bridal. This dress is perfect for the more traditional bride who wants a little peekaboo.

This is a beaded Hayley Paige wedding Dress from their spring 2014 collection. You can visit http://www.wedsociety.com for more info. I like this dress for a riskier bride who isn’t afraid to show those abs!!!

How adorable are these Bridal Maxi Bohemian chic dresses? The talented custom makers are made by Daughtersofsimone and can be visited at their Etsy store. Dress #1 $1650 Dress #2 $1750. Perfect fit for the bohemian/hippy style bride or even for a beachy/destination wedding!

The next two dresses are my absolute FAVORITES! Complete glamour and I would definitely consider wearing both. I couldn’t find the designer on the dress Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing but I’m in total love! ❤ Dress #2 is by designer Zahavit Tshuva.

Last but not least- Oscar de la Renta designed this Bridal bustier top, Ivory silk palazzo pants and a Tulle Embroidered jacket.

These gowns are so different and fun! Would any of you wear these? If yes, which one(s) are your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
