I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Okay you guys. You’ve heard us rave about Squarespace before, right? It is the perfect place to host your wedding website–but what you may not have thought about is how a Squarespace wedding website can actually take you beyond the day for more fun and interaction with your guests. To show you just how fun, we thought we’d share with you Jill and Ryan’s wedding website with images courtesy of Nostalgic Photography.

For starters, because Squarespace is so easy to design and navigate, that it makes is possible for you to do a quick switch and thank your guests on the landing page:

Squarespace also makes it easy for you to share tons of images in a really clean and beautiful layout. How fun is it to recap the big day after it has happened? Guests can come to your site to reminisce!

You can even incorporate pre- and/or post-wedding festivities, or even your honeymoon snapshots.

Jill and Ryan also chose a unique hashtag for their wedding and shared instagram snapshots that their guests took, which adds a whole new element to the recap! If anything sounds too intimidating, we love the Squarespace offers 24/7 live chat support, so stuff like this is a breeze to figure out, even if you get stuck!

Every annual Squarespace account comes with a free custom domain, and if you use the code GREY15 you even get 10% off! With the capability to track RSVPs, share wedding details, add your registry, and all that great stuff, we seriously couldn’t be more obsessed.

Alright, lovely ladies! For those of you that are donning an incredibly gorgeous piece of jewelery on your left hand (or for those of you that are crossing you pretty little fingers you’ve got something special headed your way soon) this post is for you!

The only downside to carrying a pricey sparkler on your finger every day is the potential chance that something might happen to your little gem. Because we all know that totally unexpected accidents happen, like damage, theft, or just plain complete accidental disappearing acts, it makes absolute sense that you insure that little heirloom of a ring that you wear every day! Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company is one of our fave choices for insuring your ring and giving you peace of mind.

We absolutely love that they understand name brand, and they promise that if anything happens, you’ll get the same quality and kind that you had before–so if you are rocking a Tiffany’s or Cartier sparkler and something happens to it, you’ll get to replace it with the exact same! Plus, if there is damage, Jewelers Mutual® will also allow you to use your own jeweler for repairs. For most couples, your ring might fall under your home owner’s or renter’s policy, but Jewelers Mutual® is truly the only way to make sure your coverage is completely comprehensive without as much limitation as you’d get from broader policies.

With wedding season fast approaching, we have definitely got gifts on our minds, ladies! Seriously, how much fun is it to curate your wedding registry? It’s like figuring out a way to define your sense of style going forward and such a fun way to have you home reflect the new stage of your life as a Mrs. So, speaking of registries, we thought today it would be really fun to show you three different styles of registries, and how fun it can be to reflect–or perhaps even FIND–your style using a registry! Which brings us to Zola Registry!

But why? Well, for starters, we are all about style. However, sometimes, curating your style is easier said than done. Creating a registry with Zola is more than just picking your fave gifts. Zola actually helps you by curating collections of gifts, based on style. Whether you lean rustic, boho, or glam, they are there to help you round out your style so that your registry reflects you, your partner, and the home you are creating. To show you just how it works, we thought we’d share with you some of the curated collections from Zola.

First up, The Georgetown Collection, which if you might have already guessed, is Lady Grey’s fave:

Side note: that gold bar cart above is a bit pricey, but thankfully Zola allows for group gifting so you can talk all your besties into going in together on that one for you! Dreamy, no?

Find these Georgetown items: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

If the preppy style isn’t your jam, how about the chic and modern Tribeca Collection?

For those of you boho girls, we love The Silver Lake Collection.

Find these Silver Lake items: 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Of course, if your house is already bursting at the seams with stylish finds, or if you are the kind of couple that prefers activities, it is super fun that Zola allows for you to registry for experiences or honeymoon funds as well as gifts. There are all sorts of other killer perks that they offer like gift tracking, so you know who bought you what (comes in handy for thank you notes), virtual exchange, so you can swap out gifts before they are even sent, and even a send it later option, so that you can choose when you want each individual gift shipped (and don’t have to deal with a million boxes after your honeymoon).

For those of you who are as obsessed with we are, Zola is offering $25 to spend when you sign up and create a registry!

We love when wedding details are a little unexpected–like today’s post that combines the organic feeling of a seaside wedding with a major dose of bridal elegance a la Ariel. This is the type of gorgeous design that we’ve learned is available through Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons. Hopefully you’ve had fun exploring all the full service design possibilities from our little series!

As we head into the weekend, we thought the perfect way to enjoy our Friday is with a recap of our favorite party of the year: The Cream Event.

If you haven’t ever been, here’s how it works. The genius team behind The Cream Event sets a mood/theme for all the vendors–and for you! This year, the color scheme included tons of whites and creams–so everything from decor to fashion was all in these hues!! All sorts of killer wedding vendors are invited to show off their wares for you–the attendee. What is amazing is that you can see how one inspiration board can be interpreted in so many different ways! What a killer way to check out wedding pros in the actual context with which you’d use them!

Every year, The Cream Event ends with the most epic dance off. For this year’s prize to the dance off winner, Wanderable teamed up with Mr. & Mrs. Smith (who has spent the last decade checking into the world’s most stylish, inspiring and romantic boutique hotels) to offer a 7 night honeymoon in France at this year’s Cream Event in Los Angeles. The incredible giveaway included a $2,000 hotel credit in Paris (which can be used at any of the 65 properties in the Mr. and Mrs. Smith Hotel Collection in France), as well as 7 different Wanderable experiences, like a Flytographer photo shoot, Macaron making class, guided tours of Montmartre and Versailles and foodie excursions! In total, the prize was valued at over $5,000!!! Crazy, right? That’s why things get a little crazy during the dance off:

If you didn’t know, Wanderable is a super fab online resource for the chic, modern couple who values experiences over things. Their site allows you to register for custom experiences, rather than the standard gift, and we love the idea! In fact, Wanderable is offering a $20 credit if you sign up by clicking here! So great, right?
