{Your Song}

Some couples have 'their song' long before they get married, the first song they danced to at Prom or something from a special moment in their relationship. Others pick a song they both like for their first dance and it becomes their special song through the years together as a married couple.

Here are some of my favorite tunes for the First Dance:
"Till My Last Day" by Justin Moore
"Marry Me" by Train
"1,000 Years" Christina Perry
"Then" by Brad Paisley
"Feels Like Home" by Chantal Kreviazuk
"My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw
"God Blessed the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts
"Amazed" by Lonestar
"Lucky" by Colbie Caillat
"You And Me" by Dave Matthews Band

Couple of tips
If your song is long, let the DJ know to fade it out at a certain point or have the band only do the first couple of verses. Six minutes of having people watch you dance will seem like forever.

If you aren't planning a choreographed routine, another idea is taking dancing lessons, which can be a fun thing for couples to do together and a way to make you seem a little more graceful for your dance. 

Whether you decide to take lessons or not, it doesn't hurt to do a little practice, especially the Groom! Try dancing to your song at least once to make sure you're both on the same page with how you plan on dancing.

 If you've chosen your song, we'd love to hear what it is!

{colors of fall}

My favorite season of the year is hands down, fall. The colors of the leaves when they turn, the ability to cuddle up on the couch in your comfy sweats with a movie (and not feeling guilty for being lazy), and adding pumpkin spice to as much as possible! These are only a few reasons of why I love this season. I can't explain why, maybe it's because fall leads up to the holiday season - there's just something about the weather that makes it that much more enjoyable than any other time of the year. 

I've be finding that the colors of fall are absolutely perfect for any wedding palette during the months of September and November - orange, brown, green, yellow. Just take a walk outside and look at the leaves on the trees and you will find unlimited options for a color of fall. The options don't stop at the colors either. Scents are another hit for this wonderful season. Share your favorites with your guests during the ceremony and reception.

Below, I've shared some of my favorites for this season - colors to scents to wedding inspiration boards. The possibilities are endless for this time of year. Be creative, do some research and see what you can come up with!

 Happy fall and happy planning, Brides!
