How was your weekend, friends? 
The weather was glorious, and we spent the weekend relaxing with family and friends,
and sailing and eating crabs in Annapolis, Maryland.

Pink and Green Thursday: A Toast to "I Do!"

Hello and Happy Pink and Green Thursday, dear friends! 

This week is dedicated to all the brides to be!  Quite a few of my blog friends have upcoming weddings, and it has been so fun reliving the experience along with them.  This weekend our sweet Michelle from Pink Champagne is heading down the aisle to "I Do," so without further ado, please enjoy!

As always, please feel free to link up below by grabbing the button off my sidebar, and show us your pink and green faves!  Thanks so much for playing along with us!

So the big day is almost here!


You've been dreaming of this day since you were a little girl.....

You've read magazines galore, looked at countless inspiration boards, tasted yummy cakes, obsessed over combinations of lovely flowers....



....and selected the bouquet that you as the bride would carry down the aisle to "I Do!"

All the little details have fallen into place, now it's time for you to relax and ENJOY!   Whether your wedding is a celebration with hundreds of guests,

(Sylvia Weinstock wedding cakes, aren't they divine?!)

Or a slightly smaller affair with close friends and family,

Enjoy every little moment, surrounded by those you love the most!

Celebrate with a little bubbly!

Put on your fanciest party shoes...

And a toast:

"Here's to the prettiest, here's to the wittiest,
Here's to the truest of all who are true,
Here's to the neatest one, here's to the sweetest one,
Here's to them, all in one - here's to you."

Here's to a lifetime of Happily Ever After!

Happy Pink & Green Thursday, everyone!
