In case you didn’t know, I’ll be getting married this year! I’m very excited to have found someone that makes me believe in living happily ever after. As children of divorce, we know very well that not all couples make it to the finish line, but we want to try nevertheless.

As we started to prepare for the big day, I discovered just how many things have to be arranged to organize a wedding and I am freaking out a little bit. The list goes on and on: flowers, dress, rings, accessories, rings, DJ, photographer, etc. There are so many options with prices ranging from expensive to ridiculously expensive. I found it’s not easy to make quick decisions for such a memorable moment. But with limited time to organize everything, we just have to forget the overwhelming pressure to have the perfect wedding day and start making choices.

To help me figure out the look I want for my wedding, here are the images that caught my eyes so far.

Everything looks so good! The good news for someone having a hard time deciding is that there many great options.

By the way, you might have noticed that there was a lot of pink on that list. I love this color and think it’s very appropriate for a wedding. But also, I’ve already bought these shoes to go with my dress:

We have a photographer, an officiant, my dress, and shoes. Unless there’s some kind of disaster, we’ll book our reception room on Tuesday. If we keep it up, we’ll have a gorgeous wedding in September.

Have a great day!

My name is Isabelle (Zaza for the few people who knew me way back then). I am writing to you from my pink office in Montréal, Québec. As a French literature graduate, I soon realized that teaching was not for me and I am now working in an office. I love mountains, trees, soup, and books. In recent years, my passion for food grew bigger and bigger. As a result, I am now going out of my comfort zone in the kitchen and trying to be more adventurous. I invite you to follow me on my journey to learn new techniques, conquer desserts and find exquisite recipes. Along the way, I plan to share what excites me, may it be a newly discovered restaurant, book, artist or Etsy find.
