I’m a big fan of getting cool gifts that are not necessarily on the gift registry, especially if you have good taste*….I’m hugely into personalized gifts, and these pillows from K Studio are right up my alley! Who wouldn’t want a conjoined head pillow….a true symbol of 2 becoming one in marriage? And what about a customized family pillow with the couples likeness….you can even add in the family pet in lieu of kids! These are definitely going into my Wishpot list….
[warning: just because you THINK you have good taste, doesn’t mean you do! The quality of your taste should be corroborated by at least 3 independent people ]

Remember Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn’s wedding with the fab country theme? Well InStyle Weddings latest issue showed a closeup of the florals used, designed by TFS Studio and Event Design, and they are just great! Very lush and understated.

I loved these invites from the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings on stands now…I’ve always been a big fan of “official” looking invites or invites using handwriting.

I took off work last Monday to change my name at the Social Security Office and the DMV and all I can say is…what the heck did I agree to? In NYC, not sure about other states, to change your SS#, you can either mail your original SS card, your original marriage license, the change form, and any other original paperwork you need, or else you come in and do it. For me, mailing all that important info was just not an option, so I opted to go in. All I can say ladies, is just be prepared to wait and do your homework..find out if your local office actually does the new cards or not (the one by me apparently does not and I had to go elsewhere), and make sure you have all your paperwork or else they are not going to help you. Same goes for the DMV….check the website and make sure you have everything because you wait a LOOOOOOONG time, and getting turned away is the WORST.
For my forms, I actually used the MissNowMrs program and was really glad at how easy it was. I was happy to have all the forms in one place…I can only hope with the next version they’ll be able to figure out a way to have the program wait in line for me.
I wish we could have used these amazing glasses for our wedding toasts….[by Alissia MT]
