From the time I woke up on the Thursday before my wedding to the time our rehearsal began on Friday, the world whizzed past in a non-stop blur. Not a crazed blur, but just a this-train-has-left-the-station-and-there’s-no-stopping-it-now blur. We arrived at the church in one piece, but I would not have trusted myself to remember tiny details like packing my toothbrush in that span of time. Enter: the Southern Weddings Wedding Day Packing List! Print this little gem out and tuck it away until the week before your weddings, ladies, when I guarantee your overworked brain will be relieved to have it to rely on. You can download your own copy here!

Happy weekend, friends! It’s bright and sunny today, a welcome change from the cold and rain we had all this week. The weather for this coming week looks the same, which makes us even more excited for our team retreat, including 2016 team photos! As you know, we added a few new team members in the last few months, and since the retreat will be the first time a few of us have met in person, we’re looking forward to it even more than usual!

See more from this engagement session by Arte de Vie on our Facebook page!

In case you missed it this week…

Katie and Scott: The most perfect poppy bouquet, floral and striped linens, and sweet Italian details in Virginia.
Casey and Jordan: Boho details, a bouquet bursting with greenery, and a ceremony under a tree in Florida.
Christy and Jake: A lakeside setting, succulent and antler centerpieces, and a black tie bridal party in Georgia.
Caroline and Chandler. A mountaintop ceremony, mix and match bridesmaid dresses, and cotton candy in Arkansas.

We also gave you a peak behind the scenes as we count down our editorials for the next issue of the magazine!

Have a delightful weekend, and congratulations to anyone getting married!!

Happy Friday, belles! Since we just flipped the calendar page again (hello, May!) and Lisa and I have been hard at work with our team of stylists and vendors making Volume 9 magic happen, we thought it was time for a little #MakingSouthernWeddings update here on the blog! We have two editorial shoots under our belts (hooray!), two coming up this month, two in June, and one that is yet to be scheduled – but will likely end up being in June, too! We’ve actually already gotten the photos back from our first shoot, and let’s just say, there were some dancing lady and heart eye emoji texts involved amongst our team. We can’t wait for you to see!! But in the meantime, here’s what we can share…

Our first editorial was staged in sunny Florida. We had the help of two long-time Blue Ribbon Vendors, Ashton Events and Justin DeMutiis, and since I was out on maternity leave, Lisa also had Marissa by her side! (That’s her wearing one of our cute shoot aprons from Oatmeal Lace, above.) This shoot was bright and colorful, with just a hint of gold and citrus :)

Our second editorial took place at the Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta. Yeah, we couldn’t stop staring at that ceiling, either! We were thrilled to take on an indoors shoot – something a little different for us – and hope y’all will love having some ballroom inspiration in our next issue! Of course, peonies arranged by Blue Ribbon Vendor Jacin Fitzgerald, an epic tulle wedding gown, and photos by Sawyer Baird don’t hurt, either. I was back from maternity leave for this one, and it was extra fun to have my little girl and my Mom in tow for the day! But don’t get me started on Atlanta traffic… yeesh!

As always, follow along on Instagram and Snapchat for more Southern Weddings V9 action as it unfolds! You can find everything on our account, @SouthernWeddings, and the #SouthernWeddingsV9 and #MakingSouthernWeddings hashtags. And don’t forget: we will be reviewing real weddings for Volume 9 through August, so send them our way! We can’t WAIT to see your big days!! You can find our submission guidelines here.

P.S. Interested in being a Volume 9 sponsor? There’s still time, and we would love to have you! In fact, we’re running a special deal until May 9, so hop like a bunny and email Marissa!
