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

Planning  a wedding is amazing, but when you begin your registry, you start planning your life together, long after the wedding. It’s the dishes you’ll serve your first Christmas meal on, the KitchenAid  you’ll use to teach your daughter to make cookies, the cup of coffee you’ll brew in the morning, in less than a minute thanks to Keurig. We think this process is a seriously important part in preparing to say “I do.”

Kohl’s has all of the staple items you need, at prices you’ll be thrilled about. They carry the brands you trust like KitchenAid, Keurig, Corningware, Pyrex, Cuisinart, OXO, and Food Network.

The even more amazing thing is that they give YOU 10% back on gifts purchased from your Kohl’s Wedding Registry. Which means every time you’re showered with gifts, you get 10% back to grab the things you didn’t get! They also give your guests an extra 20% off in store purchase of $100 or more from your wedding registry, leaving them with even more room in the budget to throw in a few extras for you! **In order for guests to save the 20% on a $100 or more purchase, all they need is an announcement card – which can be printed off the registry page on Kohls.com.

We are over the moon intoxicated by the most fabulous collaboration between Green Wedding Shoes and their friends at Show Me Your Mumu. Show Me Your Mumu designs clothing for carefree adventurers and all their dresses are made here in the US! GWS worked with their design team on an exclusive print inspired by their love of florals that is perfect for your bridesmaids, as a wedding guest, honeymoon or the perfect summer day!

The Kendall Maxi has a soft V neck and low back which is ultra feminine and flatters every body, the wrap around skirt that creates a slit lets you pull an Angelina stance whenever you need (you never know when you’re gonna need it). Chill enough for a little pointy toed bootie and classy enough for an elegant heel. Kendall may be a young Mu but she is definitely on track to be your new go-to maxi.

The Hacienda Maxi with her pretty ruffle is flattering on everyone, and her elastic scrunch neck line will allow you to dance all night long. I think this might just be one of the most versatile dresses we have ever seen. Wear her as a tube dress, off your shoulders, or even on your shoulders if you prefer! Wear her to your bestie’s wedding or in your bestie’s wedding. Dress her down for a moonlight stroll down to the ocean or to that summertime school reunion and you now no longer have to dread finding a dress!

And our personal fave? The King Crop Top and Ballgown Skirt. Your love for the King Crop will make you weak in the knees the second you slip into this little number. Cropped to flatter with your favorite mini skirt, ballgown or swing shorts this top is sure to be a staple in your closet and your LIFE! The skirt is high waisted and zips you up so you look teeny tiny, and then sweeps out so long and full, just like a princess in a ballgown.

For getting ready the day of the wedding, we love our Romper – would make the perfect bridesmaids gift as well, right?

Oh, did we mention that their dresses are very affordable?! (prices range from $96 – $176) And you will definitely wear these dresses again!

Let’s be real, second to the amount of time we spend dreaming about the man we might eventually marry, we spend most of our time daydreaming about THE ring. We scour magazines, websites, friend’s fingers, and jewelry stores looking for that sparkle we’ll proudly don for years to come. Ritani has literally blown us away with their engagement rings. Specializing in setting the classic round cut diamond in a variety of options, and even allowing customers to do their own custom ring design. Round cut diamonds are timeless, versatile, and possess more sparkle due to their brilliant cut than other shape. Here are a few styles that especially frame them well:

The Classic Solitaire is timelessly elegant, the simplicity of this style perfectly showcases the diamond and it’s brilliance.

Halo rings feature a center stone surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds, offering even more dramatic sparkle to an already sparkly center stone, making any stone look bigger, and adding a vintage flair!

Bezel set rings are becoming an increasingly popular choice, as they are fashion forward and modern!

Finally, we love the Three Stone setting, representing the past, present, and future these rings make a beautiful and sentimental statement.

One of the things we really appreciate about Ritani is that all diamonds sold are certified and ethically sourced. They also allow users to customize their own engagement rings and buy online or preview in store at retail partners across the nation before they buy. Love that. Get what you really want, you’ll be rocking it the rest of your life!

One thing that we hear time and time again is how overwhelming planning a wedding can be.  Some brides love diving into all the details, while others would rather hand those decisions off to a professional. Let’s be honest, there are a million options out there from florists, to photographers, to caterers. But some brides just don’t have the extra budget to hire someone to handle the details for them, that’s where The Party People come in!

The Party People are full-service party planners, with one CRUCIAL difference—they are totally FREE for the client. Pretty awesome, right?!

The super cool thing is they make money the same way many other planners do—they work off of referral fees from the vendors.  Because of this, they see no reason to charge the client as well.  Therefore, their services are free!

You may be wondering how this works. First, each client gets paired with their personal Advisor (planner), who will be with them from start to finish. The client goes to the website and heads to the “Get Started” page.  There, they fill out a brief questionnaire to give a few logistics and some preliminary information.  Someone from the team will reach out to schedule their initial session with their paired planner.

Next, their Advisor will run some numbers, contact a few vendors, and all around match the client with several suitable vendors. They then send the client a “Party Proposal.”  This document has everything the client will need to research the vendor—it is 100% hyperlinked and includes everything from contact email address, to instagram accounts!

From there, it is entirely up to the client which vendor they select— The Party People’s job is to be objective, they do not care who gets selected, only that the client is happy and the integrity of their special day is being preserved.

They can be as involved or not involved as the client likes—whether brides want The Party People to plan their entire wedding, or simply suggest a few celebrants and caterers.  They can do it all!

Seems like a win win to us!

As you all well know, we’re pretty big color freaks here at Grey Likes Weddings. It’s definitely our numero-uno-style-inspiration and there’s nothing more thrilling to us than rainbow of color options (ehem! the Mrs. Box collection). So, you can imagine our excitement when Weddings In Color, a rad new book from our friends over at Chronicle Books, made it’s way into our studio. This candy-colored planning guide is packed with totally do-able DIYs, super-honest interviews with industry experts and gorgeous inspiration imagery.  The authors, two major wedding professionals, Vane Broussard of Brooklyn Bride and Minhee Cho of Paper + Cup, have covered everything you can imagine from innovative menu designs, to floral head pieces to creating a confetti bar (yay!).

We’re especially into the color wheels that open up each color chapter. If you’re looking to pinpoint the perfect green hue as reference for your calligrapher, you’re sure to find it in one of the seventeen greens on the wheel. It’s probably somewhere between sea mist, chartreuse or pistachio. Oh, and yes, there are individual color wheels for metallics, black, white and gray. Love.

Another thing that we’re kind-of obsessed with are the achievable DIYs. In keeping with style of the modern and contemporary wedding, the DIYs are cool, graphic and basically guaranteed not to look like Pinterest fails. And let’s be serious, no matter how proud you are to have done-it-yourself, a sloppy craft project does NOT elevate your tablescape.
