I cannot believe it's our third annual Wedding Week on The Everygirl! We started the dedicated week our first year back in 2012 since the topic of weddings was one of the few lifestyle subjects we didn't cover. We thought we'd put it all–fashion, career, decor, finance, relationships and mental health–that touched on the topic of weddings into one jam-packed week.
Well today is the kick-off and we've got an Elopement to Paris fashion feature (my dream!), the Ultimate 12-Month Planning Timeline (with printable checklist!), and a fantastic giveaway from one of our favorite luxury kitchen brands! Stay tuned later this week for stories like "5 Things to Discuss Before Getting Engaged," a career profile on a popular bridesmaid rental boutique owner, and more fashion, food, and decor!
Four(?) years ago I met Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar at a lovely and memorable dinner in New York City. We've stayed good blog friends, keeping up with one another's sites and careers, and it's been incredible watching his success grow. Danielle and I met up with him for lunch when we visited London this past fall, making it the second time we've ever hung out in person, and this month, he's been dotting across the United States promoting his new book! We were so excited Chicago was one of his stops, and he asked us to show him around the city on Sunday. The sites we visited were all going to be documented for a post on West Elm's blog Front and Main (they were hosting his book tour), so the talented Maura Stoffer was there to capture everything. It's really incredible seeing beautiful, candid photos from such a special day with friends.
