bridesmaid box

Bridesmaid box | Burnett's Boards

Claudette here! With almost 3 months to go until we say "I do", and us almost being in the peak of wedding party season, I thought I would share how I asked my special friends to be my bridesmaids. It's true when they say as you get older you create a smaller, more curated group of people close to you, rather than the hundreds of friends you though you had when you were 13. This became very evident once we had moved to Canada. Everyone at our leaving party made … [Continue reading]

A little blast from the past with a color palette that never gets stale! Juicy citrus hued weddings are bright, fresh, and perfect for summer.
