  • Welcome!

    Thanks so much for stopping by our blog! I'm Quenetta Gordon, principal event planner and designer at Something Blue Weddings & Events. The internet is a very big place and I know that, at any moment, there are thousands of places you could choose to go to get the information and inspiration you're looking for to plan your wedding. But something brought you HERE and I'm so excited about that! My intent is to keep you coming back for more by dishing up insightful advice and fun (and don't forget PRETTY) inspiration for your celebration. I'll also share some of the goings-on here at Something Blue!

Shopping for Your Wedding Dress

A-line or Empire silhouette?

V-neck or Sweetheart neckline?
Where should I go to purchase my dress?
How far am I going to have to dig into my (or my parents’) pocket for this thing?

These are common questions that brides have when they start thinking seriously about wedding dresses. You are about to embark on one of the most anticipated shopping trips of your life! So of course you are super excited and probably a bit anxious about making sure you make the right purchasing decision. I want to arm you with some tips to make the most of your shopping experience!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from Something Blue! I wish each and every one of you a warm, love-filled, and safe holiday with those you love. This Thanksgiving I am thankful for family, friends, and all of our Something Blue clients who have entrusted me to play such a huge role in shaping their wedding celebrations!

Today I am sharing one of my favorite pins from Pinterest that very simply conveys the spirit of the holiday. It’s a great DIY project!
