2 Weddings, 1 Summer

Everyone knows that warmer weather means a wardrobe change, beach getaways, al fresco dining, and for us in our 20's and 30's, WEDDING SEASON. For some, it's highly anticipated. For others, highly dreaded. Those of you who fall in the latter category will enjoy this BuzzFeed video that we posted on our Facebook page a few days ago. :) It's all in good fun!

If you're anything like me and my husband, your refrigerator is covered in invitations and save the date magnets. As overwhelming as it can be, I have to remember how special that time was for us. We are coming up on almost two years of marriage next month! After our wedding, my husband was a groomsman in three weddings that Summer, and three more the following Summer. Yes, it began to feel redundant and we did a lot of driving and gift-purchasing, but it was such a joyous and sweet time! Also, there is free food! Who doesn't love free food??

This Summer it is my turn to be a bridesmaid! I am not ashamed to say that I have always wanted to be a bridesmaid in someone's wedding, but I was blessed with the opportunity to be a bride first. I have the privilege of being Matron of Honor in my best friend's wedding this July, and a bridesmaid in another close, sweet friend's wedding in early September. Let me tell you that these weddings could not be more different! One of them starts at 5:00 in the evening, and for the other I will be getting up at 5:00 in the morning. But I could NOT be more excited to be a part of both of them. I will be keeping you all posted on the planning processes. They will, of course, both be adorning gorgeous veils and jewelry from Affordable Elegance! 

We are in the process of adding a "Real Weddings" page to our website! We are so excited to add this feature and show off our beautiful customers on their big day! Email any pictures you would like to see featured on our page to They can be of anything you purchased from Affordable Elegance, from you and your bridesmaids in our jewelry, to favors, or your cake topper! We can't wait to see your "Real Wedding" pictures!

Are you excited for wedding season?
