    1. Hi Meghan,

      For paper goods I print myself I use a Canon MG5220 and when we were living in LA we would get some items printed at Columbia Printing in Downtown LA. I am also available for custom paper goods orders through my Etsy Shop if you need help with anything! Congrats on your engagement!

    1. We made the table runners using a 2 foot wide kraft runner layered with a 1 foot wide piece of black/white striped fabric that we bought in downtown LA.

      You can purchase the kraft runner here:

      hope that helps!

  5. Hi Natalie,
    Found your site by searching for your bridesmaid dresses on Pinterest. Love it! I am a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding next October and she is obsessed with your bridesmaid dresses. Where did you get them? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Bree,

      My bridesmaids' dresses were all custom made by Anoushka Alden- you can read more about them and get the link to her site in this post:

  9. Hi there! I see you are in Chicago now, do you do home decor consulting at all? Bucktown loft in need of some sprucing up!

  10. Natalie, hi! Diane from the space on Wrightwood in Chicago sent me a link to this site because we're both looking at the same storefront. If you're interested, I'd love to get in touch to talk about whether it might be possible to share the space--we have a very similar aesthetic and could share rent and referrals. I'm starting up in vintage rentals with some styling (engagement shoots, day-of, etc.) and vintage gown sales. Just let her know I said it's okay to give you my info if you want to get in touch! I'd love to talk.

  14. Hello There,
    My name is Lynn and I'm a Professional Blogger. I have more than 3+ yrs of experience writing for the web and have covered plenty of interesting topics.
    I came across your blog and was wondering if you would be interested in allowing me to write relevant & useful topics on your blog at no cost.
    At this point of my writing career, I simply want to get more visibility for my writing and I will write for free as long as you are fine with me adding a small author bio section following the blog post about myself.
    Please let me know if you are interested and if you'd like for me to submit a sample blog post for your approval.
    Thanks a bunch,
    Lynn

  17. Hello,

    Thanks for all the AMAZING wedding tutorials! They are very helpful. Also wondering where you got, or how you made those braided garlands on the bar and guest book table? So bummed that photo booth back drop is sold! Any other wedding leftovers you would want off your hands. Trying to make things as easy as possible as I prepare for my July wedding. Your wedding colors are eerily similar to mine.

    Thanks for all the inspiration!

  18. I was going to ask the same question as above...how do you make the braided
    garland? I know it sounds straight forward but I'm sure you have a special technique that is oh so mint love...

  19. Do you do blog design? I would be a very interested potential customer!

  20. Natalie! I am a huge fan of your blog and absolutely smitten with all of the wonderful parties you throw! I'm very interested in getting into event planning as a career, however I don't have any real experience yet. Do you have any advice or suggestions for a good way to start?!

  21. Hi, Natalie!
    I've found your blog surfing trough bloglovin' popular pots.
    Maybe this is strange question ,but I hope yyou'll manage to find some time to answer
    I am in love with the FONT on your about picture, (guilty pleasures, weekend plans is written in it).
    Could you please tell me where on earth did you get it?! :) I've been searching for something like that for ages but I've found no calligraphy like that until now :) I'm looking forward to see your answer. You can even mail it here: sznskoric/at/gmail/dot/com Thanks!

  22. Hi Natalie!
    I ordered one of your awesome glitter signs last spring, and it was a hit! I love throwing parties as well, and am struggling in one area that I am not sure how to fix. I want to be able to create my own labels and signs for things like food and cocktails, etc. I can't seem to find a computer program that will help me to do this. Is there a program you use? Do you have a background in graphic design? What would you suggest I do so that I can improve in this area?
    Thanks so Much! Annie L.

    1. Hi Annie,

      I do not have a background in graphic design, but have self-taught myself a lot of it over the past couple years- I would definitely recommend looking into an intro to Graphic Design at a local community college. I design most of our party paper goods in Adobe Illustrator or if its something simple I will use Microsoft Word. The trick is getting a decent printer and learning how to use different settings to print on different sizes and types of paper!

      I hope that helps!

      Best,
      natalie

  23. Hey Natalie!

    I just stumbled upon your blog while searching pinterest for ideas for a couples shower I'm planning. I love your blog! I MUST have your Sequins and Bowtie Invitation! It is the most adorable thing I've ever seen and it will be PERFECT for my couples shower! When I click on the link on the page, the PDF seems to be deleted from the Etsy page and I can't access your Etsy shop from the blog. Is there anyway you could email it to me? My email is brittany.k.brink@gmail.com. I hope you're having a wonderful time in Paris! I'm so jealous! You are definitely an inspiration!

    Take Care,
    Brittany
