I’m not gonna lie. While getting married is one of the most fun events you will most likely ever experience, there is something about the day you head out to your honeymoon, knowing all you have ahead of you is rest and relaxation. The registering is done, the vows have been said, and a good time has been had by all. Now give me the beach!
So, while you’re running around creating the perfect registry, don’t forget to add these honeymoon must-haves from jcpenney to your list. They’re the perfect gifts for friends to give you (or, let’s be totally honest, to treat yourself with).

Spring has sprung and it is never too late to think about stylish ways to green your wedding day. Spring is a time of rebirth – the trees are fresh with buds and the landscape is blanketed in vibrant colors – making it the perfect time to take inspiration from the great outdoors.
Here are some tips to use that inspiration to make your spring wedding eco-friendly and fabulous:
Décor: Spring is the perfect time of year to embrace the natural beauty and colors that come with the season. Using local flowers requires less travel, so you get fresh blooms that look their best on your wedding day.

You all know what a huge fan I am of personal, customized gifts, especially for big life events (um, your wedding day perhaps?) as a way to commemorate the day in a meaningful way. There’s something about opening up a gift that has thought, care and time invested into it…
Which is probably why I think Vintage Pearl’s customized necklaces are so lovely. They’re a subtle way to wear your heart on your sleeve (or your chest, in this case), plus they’re really pretty, aren’t they? And I love that each piece is individually handstamped so no two necklaces are exactly the same, just like your love (sometimes I just can’t help it…).

Oh, how we love Frolic! Chelsea’s daily inspiration blog is always chock-full of pretty ideas that feel effortless and chic. So, we’re so happy that she is posting DIY projects that are easy to do while packing a big punch.
We love the guys over at The Man Registry; they’re funny, have a great site just for the wedding men folk, and are very, well, manly. We couldn’t be happier to have them guest blogging for us today with ideas from the heart of their site. Enjoy!
Here’s a scenario that might sound familiar: there’s a month to go before the big day and you’ve just realized that your fiancé hasn’t even begun looking at groomsmen gifts yet. Don’t worry, it’s natural. Guys (as you know) love waiting until the last minute to get things accomplished. If you want to grease the rails, here are a few suggestions from The Man Registry…
So remember how I told you awhile back how I was reticent to register but so thrilled that we did? Well, this past weekend my husband and I finally had a chance to pull out all of the wares for our first dinner party where all of our dishes matched (for the first time in my life), I had two (count them, two!) types of wine glasses to offer people and there was nary a plastic serving bowl in sight. I was such a grown up and it was ridiculously fun.
Which is all to say, that I highly recommend registering for nice, useful items that you’ll enjoy using over and over again. And
I’m a big believer that all you need is the right accessories to take your outfit from cute to Wowza! – an interesting headpiece, a killer pair of heels, a sentimental cocktail ring, or, in the case of Bagatelles&co, a retro-inspired purse.
Designed by a French textile designer living in London, Bagatelle’s line is handmade from vintage silks, tie silk and brocade remnant so each edition is limited, making for a unique bridesmaid gift or bridal purse that not everyone else will be sporting. And Rym will further personalize the purses with custom messages sewn in (think your wedding date, a sweet message to your bridesmaid, or even, just the word “love”).

Okay, I know it is bright and early here (let’s just say I’m still working on my first cup of coffee), but somehow that doesn’t seem to have any bearing on the fact that I’m absolutely obsessing about how to get my hands on some of this popcorn. Because, dear readers, I know just how good it really tastes; the Too Haute Cowgirls were kind enough to bring samples by the mywedding office at one point, and I had to very politely sit on my hands in order to not shove the entire bag into my mouth (I don’t think I was the only one).
My personal favorite is their best-selling Fistful of Fleur de Sel,…
When it was time for my husband and myself to register for our wedding, I was stressed in the way only a bride can be. The idea of asking people to buy us things (expensive things at that) was very uncomfortable for me, and once we started the actual registry process I managed to get all worked up over whether or not we were registering for the right things. Did I want someone to spend their hard-earned cash on a waffle maker? Was I the sort of person who now makes waffles? What if my children asked for waffles one day and I had no way to make them because I hadn’t registered for the waffle maker? Argh!
It was a really fun process.
