Store, Sell, or Repurpose?

I was digging through the closet the other day when I came across an item I haven’t seen in years: a royal blue box with the words STUART WEITZMAN embossed across the top, housing the shoes I wore on my wedding day 5 years ago. At $295, the Stuart Weitzman Dubonnet is the most expensive […]

Film Roll Wedding Invitations

Via The Daily What. You may also like: “Photoshop” in the 1930s Photography, Sushi, and Arrangement Pr0n Disney Princesses […]

Guest Post: Sung & James

Jane is an up-and-coming photographer who recently documented her friend Sung’s pre-wedding photo shoot. I hope you enjoy the photos and the accompanying story as much as I did!

Have Mercy!

Since I had so much fun talking about a teenage crush yesterday, I thought I would start today on another one: Uncle Jesse from Full House. Notice I said “Uncle Jesse,” not “John Stamos.” It’s because I have a habit of falling for characters as opposed to the actors who portray them. (Hence my tendency to […]

The Other Dress I Will Never Wear Again

I loved my wedding dress. It was slightly under budget, easy to alter, and it was the first dress I tried on that made me feel like a bride. Yes, it was bashed on a public, then-popular wedding blog (which I won’t link to here but if you want to read it, shoot me a […]

Cake Envy

When J and I were planning our wedding, we were pleasantly surprised to find that our venue would provide a cake at no extra cost. SCORE! We thought. One less thing to plan, one less vendor to deal with, and one less thing to worry about. We chose our cake from an album of “typical” wedding cakes, […]

I Was a Cookie-Cutter Bride

Recently I have even been called out (in the wedding blog world) for advocating creativity and individuality when my own wedding was so “cookie-cutter.” I know that making your wedding one-of-a-kind and unique is the trendy thing to do these days. However, J and my wedding was fairly traditional and conservative.  Thinking back to our […]

The Black “Bee” of the Group

Being accepted as a blogger for Weddingbee has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have forged amazing friendships, learned a great deal about blogging (and being a better person in general), and have found a treasure trove of inspiration for all aspects of my life. That being said, I sometimes […]

My Wedding, In Retrospect

I first starting blogging in 2001 and have had several blogs since then. (Although Geek in Heels is only 3 months old I’ve transferred some of my favorite posts from those blogs to the archives.) When I got engaged I naturally started a wedding planning blog and was delighted to be accepted as a blogger […]
