Perhaps, like me, you grew up on classic rom-com movies like You’ve Got Mail, Pretty in Pink, The Wedding Planner, and Steel Magnolias. Steel Magnolias has always had a special place in my heart. And darn if that movie doesn’t make me crave cake! (I mean, what movie doesn’t?)  If you haven’t seen the movie, […]

“Let them eat [groom’s] cake”


“Distance means so little, when someone means so much.” – Tom McNeal He slid into her DM’s…  Alissa and Paul met in a very 21st-century way. “Paul started following me on Instagram after a picture of me came up on his ‘explore page’. I had gone to brunch in NYC and somehow that made me […]

If you’re like me and grew up with perhaps the best generation of teenage Rom-Com movies (I’m looking at you 10 Things I Hate About You), you already know all about the importance of the father/daughter dance at a wedding reception. What a Girl Wants definitely educated you. And honestly, who wouldn’t want to dance […]

Alternatives to Traditional Wedding Reception Dances


#onemorevallow  Picture Italian music, the smell of garlic and freshly baked bread in the air, a nice glass of wine, and a gorgeous plate of spaghetti and meatballs. Who wouldn’t fall in love?

What would the bride’s dress look like? What kind of cake would there be (it’s always about the cake)? And what […]

When I was in 5th grade, our choir was performing a concert for the other students in our elementary school. We were all supposed to wear black t-shirts and denim pants.

Gen Z Wedding Trends


Dating in the 21st century is a lot different than it was when I was a kid. If you’d asked me in 1998 what it meant to swipe right, I’d think you were making some kind of a reference to Karate Kid. Now, in 2022, it means something completely different.  The Meet-Cute For Loryn & […]

When I was a little girl dreaming of what my wedding would look like one day, I knew two things: 1. I did NOT want the preacher to talk for a long time and 2. I wanted A LOT of music. So, it’s no surprise to me that I now sit on my couch in […]
