My birthday is a few days away and this year, I’m getting inked — relax, it’s only temporary. I love those sweet little tattoos you see popping up everywhere: you know the kind, the tiny black heart, infinity symbol, ampersand, ‘love’ — but I’m way too scared to ink it for real. Ouch, you guys, and talk about commitment. That is forever-ever. Marriage is forever, too, but when you’ve found the right person (I have!), marriage forever = the best thing ever. Tattoos, not so much, if you’re like me anyway. For instance, I said to Andrew, “If I got a heart tattoo, I’d put it right here“, showing him the underside of my wrist. So, for a week, I used black marker and drew on the cutest little black heart. It took, eh, maybe three days until I was all, “GET THIS OFF OF ME” so at least I know temporary tattoos are more my style. When I did a little investigative research into cute, non-kid-like temporary tattoos, I was very impressed, even more so at the temporary wedding tattoos I found, which I’m super excited to share with you today. So, if you’re planning to freak out your parents just a little bit with a freshly-inked (temp) tattoo pre-wedding (don’t do that), want to do a trial run to see how you’ll probably get tired of the same design when you’re ninety-five (or not, which is cool, too), or paint the town red with your gal pals and matching tats (even just for the night), you’ll want to get inked with these beautiful temporary wedding tattoos. Check ‘em out!

Ah, the bachelorette party! One of your most exciting nights filled with friends, fun, flowing with champagne, and forever remembered (or forgotten? That all depends on just how much champagne was flowing). Last year, I had the distinct pleasure of planning my sister’s bachelorette party and we had a total blast. We rented a hotel room in her old college stomping grounds in Kalamazoo where we could walk to the local bars, including Monaco Bay a dueling piano bar. This place was awesome because a) we danced, sang, and partied our fannies off, and b) they invited our group to the stage and sang to the bride-to-be. They played Ben Folds Fives’ “Song for the Dumped” (you know the one… ‘give me my money back, give me my money back, you *****, and don’t forget my black t-shirt…’) for her past boyfriends because, fellas, she’s officially off the market. We all had a blast and we have tons of pictures to prove it … oh, help us all!
As I mentioned earlier, I am helping a dear friend plan her wedding this summer and as the maid of honor I again get to plan a bachelorette party. Since it’s been buzzing around in my head lately, I thought a handmade collection of party accessories would be a fun way to get my planning started and hopefully inspire you, too. This is volume one of an ongoing series and I hope you enjoy! Happy planning! ♥
