So Natalie is getting married next summer and like all engaged girls she is getting hit at all sides with “you have to have this!” “you totally don’t need that” and “but these are wedding flowers.” So, knowing that we all have opinions about weddings, can you answer a few questions?
At your wedding:
1. What are you glad you splurged on?
2. What do you wish you would have splurged on?
3. What could you have done without?
Thanks in advance!!

A while back, after seeing this post, a friend of our gave us two old school globes.
Bryan, being a history major and all, was a little against them because they have countries that are no longer correct. So I thought, you know what would be cool? To paint them with chalkboard paint! Seriously guys, I had this thought about 3 days before this chalkboard globe made the rounds! My idea was now confirmed as awesome so this weekend I made it happen.
Two coats and one (sad) USA vs Ghana game later:
We might attempt to draw the continents (you can easily see the mountain ranges for a little guidance) but I kind of like the idea of our future children creating their own worlds on there.

One day away from Friday…
I have been eating a lot of peaches lately, which makes me love this centerpiece/favor idea.

There is something about this that makes me smile. I think it is because it reminds me of my time in London, and we did a lot of smiling then.

Does anyone else need another weekend? I do. Oh well, what can you do?
On to a happier topic, weddings! I have seen a new version of the guestbook popping up here and there and I wanted to get your opinion on it. It is the family tree/thumbprint version. Here are a few images I recently saw:
Did any of you do this at your wedding? Thinking about doing it? Been to a wedding that did it? It is super cute, and I am all for the guest books that you can frame! Obviously you would need to provide some type of wipe for guests, and make sure there are enough branches… but overall it seems like a great idea!
What do you think?

I am loving these new sheets from West Elm! (Not to mention the wall color)
However my bedroom still longs for the striped ones.

Love the rustic look of this wedding! Especially the wood table sans table cloth.
(I almost didn’t post these because I can’t remember where I got them. If you know who posted these first, please let me know so that I can credit them! Via! Thanks Evie!)

To balance out today’s June Gloom I have this bright and cheery nursery to share! I love the colors, which can easily go from boy to girl with just a few pillow changes for those who keep gender a surprise.
