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

Have you met the Mavens yet?

Our Blogstress Mavens are real brides, planning (and blogging!) their real weddings for you. They are completely aflutter with incredibly helpful posts about everything from Lady Beth’s write up on your Aisle Style, to Lady Jess’s tips on Long Distance Wedding Planning (total must read!!!) and Lady Kacie’s two part engagement session idea that might make you AND the groom happy. Plus, Lady Rose is already narrowing down her honeymoon destination by process of elimination. Oh, and Lady Brunette wants to know, should she DIY her wedding stationery? She needs your help deciding!

We’re also obsessing over Lady Tessa’s Pinterest confessions and she’s working on turning her dream wedding into reality with a few affordable switches. I know you’ll love her post (and the inspiration board she shared!). We thought you’d love a little intro to her post, so read below!

At the reception we would have mismatched china and giant globe lanterns strung across tables filled with flowers and candles. Guests would drink out of mason jars and fireflies would fill the night air. We would feast on organic food grown by a local farm and every detail, from the vintage board games on the tables to the wooden centerpieces would make for a casual, but elegant scene. A live band would begin playing all of our favorite dance tunes and after a few cocktails, everyone from kids to grandparents would be on the dance floor. A food cart would come in and bring us tapas for a late night treat and that extra energy would be enough to keep the dance party going. As things wound down, our friends would get out their guitars, mandolins and fiddles and a late night music jam session would spontaneously take place…BUT…
