The Bestie Breakup

We have all had that one friend (or several) that we thought we’d be close with forever. That girl who you knew would be a bridesmaid at your wedding, the godmother of your children, and then one day you stop talking and eventually it’s like they never even existed. This is what I like to call the bestie breakup. Whether it’s a huge blowout that leads to completely severing your friend group down the middle or just a slow, subtle growing apart and you wake up one day wondering what happened-- it’s never easy.

How Rocksbox Saved my Wedding

While other holidays are often reserved for all-day celebrations, in our experience, Easter family obligations are often over in the afternoon. Because

Dress shopping Do's & Dont's

You may not know this, but before I worked for myself full-time, I worked part-time at a bridal shop. Although it was a short stint, I learned SO MUCH about the industry, and was able to store away some valuable tips and tricks for future brides. DO- Bring shoe options. Although you probably don’t know what type of shoes you will be wearing on the big day, it’s a good idea to bring both heels and flats to try both options with whatever dresses you’re looking at. DON’T- Bring an entourage. Bringing 1-3 people is fine, but more people means more opinions, and you don’t want to be swayed by someone else’s opinion of a dress that you truly love. It’s always a good idea to bring a friend or fa
