Don’t they sound divine?
We’re celebrating fall this week on Tim Duncan Events so it was only natural that we share something that tastes like fall just as much as it looks like fall!
A couple weeks ago I tried this recipe out at home and not only was it absolutely scrumptious, but it’s the perfect autumn treat for any and all of your wedding guests!
Before we even get started with the how-to’s and what-to-buy’s, let’s give a big thank you to Cupcake Project for always sharing some amazing recipes!

Have you and your beau decided to write your own vows?
Well, if you have, don’t stress. Not only will it be a wonderful experience exploring your own feelings and putting them on paper, but when the time comes to look your partner in the eyes and listen to their own, personal words, it will be one of the most magical moments of your life.
So, to plan accordingly, we’ve grabbed an amazing checklist from Real Simple to help you write your promises from A-Z.
Create a Writing Plan
Get the green light from your officiant to personalize your own vows. (Some houses of worship require you to recite traditional vows.)
Will you write your vows together? Will you share your written words with each other before the wedding day? Is there an ideal length for your vows? Is there anything too personal that you don’t want to be shared in public?
If your spiritual leanings are loosely defined, or if the two of you were raised in different faiths, have a soul-searching discussion with your fiance at least one month before the wedding to talk about what brings meaning to your life and how best to incorporate this into your vows.
Keep a copy of the one you write, and reread both letters when starting to compose your vows.
Look at souvenirs from dates, return to places that mean a lot to you both, and flip through photo albums.
When viewing the exchange of vows, think about what you like best and least and what you can adapt for your own vows.
Get inspired by poetry and quotation sites, such as poets.org and bartleby.com.
There’s no need to relate the storms you two have weathered. Also, avoid words or phrases you wouldn’t normally use—don’t just pick a passage to quote because it sounds eloquent.
Insert a tender passage from a favorite children’s book or lullaby, if you wish.
If you’re nervous about the words you’ve written, get honest feedback from a friend or family member.
Get Prepared for the Ceremony
In the days leading up to your wedding, look into the mirror and recite the vows aloud. Take it slow; this will help your voice resonate. Familiarity with your vows will inspire confidence.
Have your maid of honor carry a copy to the altar in case nerves leave you tongue-tied.

We’re finally in the midst of fall weather.
Aren’t you excited? This is such a fun time of the year. Chunky sweaters fill your closet and a permanent Starbucks cup sits in your hand. It’s the best!
Since it is fall and we’re all enjoying the leaves falling and pretty harvest moons, we thought we’d have a full week of fall-inspired wedding goodies for all the Autumn brides out there! October is one of the most popular months to get married after all!
This clean and chic pumpkin tree centerpiece is super easy to make and exudes fall’s cozy, yet crisp, flavor. Thanks to DIY Wedding Magazine we can share with you exactly how to make these pieces of decor for your cake table, guestbook table or even the sweetheart table!
What to do:
“To make this pumpkin tree centerpiece, fill a glass cylinder vase with birdseed and add a few sturdy branches. Drill a small hole in each mini pumpkin stem, string fishing line or florist’s wire through each hole, and hang.”
I truly believe that a little sparkle makes everything better.
Does your outfit look a little bland? Add a sequins clutch. Does you face look a little dull? Add some shimmering lip gloss. Does your room look a little boring? Add some sparkling curtains.
If you’re a winter bride or having an evening, formal affair … then why not add some glitter to ignite the drama? Remember, a great place to add a pop of shine would be at the rehearsal dinner too!
Feel like the belle of the ball, or the wedding, and incorporate a little sparkle somewhere in your ensemble. Or at least the bridesmaids!
It’s really quite simple. You’re the bride. It’s your day. So don’t be afraid to stand out. And with winter on the horizon, prime sparkle season, it’s about time we start to show off some glitter for all those brides who love to shine.
