If I Ever Get the Nerve to Say Hello in this Cafe...Say You Will...Marry Me...

This weekend was filled with lots and lots of driving! Me and Mr. Anonymous drove to Austin this weekend for a wedding and some shopping...what a great (but long) weekend!

When we got to Austin on Saturday, I convinced him to drive me to The Domain so we could shop around...This place was AWESOME!! Hello Michael Kors! Tiffany & Co! Louis Vuitton! Stuart Weitzman!

I have been dying to go to Michael Kors since the one here has been shut down for remodeling...there was one little beauty I just could not keep out of my head--I had to have her!


MICHAEL KORS Rose Golden Oversized Chronograph Watch

HELLO GORGEOUS!!! This is an oversized watch with a simple rose gold face. It's a little more simple and feminine than the other rose gold watches I tried on, in my opinion. This watch features three sub-dials, date function and hinged snap closure. It is beautiful! I think this will be my new favorite accessory. The color is very flattering and I love that it is just so different.

I am really loving rose gold right now, so we walked into Tiffany & Co. while at The Domain so I could peek around and see what rose gold they have right now...I was pleasantly surprised to see so much of it! I can't wait to add these little gems to my collection:


Tiffany 1837™ interlocking circles pendant



Tiffany Bezet bangle

Tiffany Somerset™ ring

I know it will be a while before I can get these beautiful accessories, but a girl can dream, right?

After The Domain, we rushed back to the hotel so we could get ready for the evening wedding in Dripping Springs, TX. The location of the wedding was STUNNING! It was by far one of the prettiest venues Mr. Anonymous and I have seen in a while (aside from ours, of course!). The food was superb, the service was spectacular, and the bride? Devastatingly beautiful. Her dress was perfect!

How cute!!!
We had an amazing time! It was just so nice to relax and catch up with some great friends that I have not seen in a while!

Heather, me, and Lindsey
Aside from hanging out with good friends, eating good food, and drinking chilled champagne, I got to look around and see some of the things that the bride chose for her wedding. This was the first wedding I have been to since being engaged, and it was really helpful seeing some of the things she did to help make her day perfect.

I'm disappointed that I didn't get to take pictures of her centerpieces or of her bar set-up. These were the two things that I really think were planned "to a T".  Her centerpieces were very simple, but ranged in various sizes. She had several tables with shorter vases where the flowers were minimal, and then she had her other tables with taller centerpieces. This really created height and dimension to the reception room. She had a few tables sprinkled in with candle centerpieces which I thought were stunning. It was really neat to see the candles mixed in with the flowers. Very simple but elegant.

Here are some floral arrangements I am emailing my florist to incorporate on our venue tables:


I love this! The element of feminine flowers with dimensional candles makes a visually stimulating table!

Same premise as the picture above...I love the deep rich color of this purple flower.

Simple and lovely. My favorite.
 We are not going to have a bouquet toss and garter toss...I don't think we have any single friends!!! Plus, this will give us more time to CELEBRATE! What do you think?

I'll leave you this Sunday evening with some of my favorite wedding pictures that I have found online...these really give me some inspiration! (All of these pictures are compliments of my favorite wedding blog, StyleMePrettty.com)


Love this picture. LOVE!


Hungry yet?


So elegant! And appealing to the eye!

Just found this picture to be very charming, don't you think?

And last, but not least....

Our wedding date!


Have a fabulous week, darlings!
