Let me clarify. 
This is not a bridal blog, but since I have been at home this week doing wedding "activities", it might seem like it and it will likely get real bridal up in here as the wedding approaches (October)
Don't worry, I won't post about linen choices or anything. Unless of course, you want me to.... (email me).

A few weeks ago, my future mother-in-law and sister-in-law threw me the most beautiful bridal shower at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan. I did a post on Bridal Shower dresses a few weeks ago and admitted to being slightly nervous about the whole present opening process. 
Guess what? 
I was not nervous at all. It was so much fun and just reinforces how lucky I am to have an awesome future-family-in-law (not sure if that is a word, but you know what I mean).

bridal hair, chignon
My hair trial happened yesterday and this is likely what's going to happen on the big day. Thank you so much for the emails + feedback on my post yesterday about Wedding Hairspiration. I decided to go with the low chignon + bangs. If you have any tips on how to keep bangs from getting greasy and nasty, please let me know. I'll probably have nightmares about this the night before the wedding. 

I'm starting to get really excited for my wedding day and looking forward to moments like this...

Happy (early) 4th of July to everyone + if you are traveling, be safe!

Your hair looks beautiful! Good choice :) As for your bangs - I think it's more forehead prep than bang prep - whenever my bangs would flop it was usually because of my face, so I tried to keep blotter papers and a powder puff around.

Glad your shower went well, too!
