My engaged niece went dress shopping today.

So exciting!

Do you want to see a picture of her dress??


Here it is…


My niece's wedding dress

My niece’s wedding dress

Um. No. Not really. 

Did you really think I was going to tell you what she was looking at? Some things just need to remain a mystery!

Until the big day, that is.

It is so easy to spill the beans about your wedding these days. There are so many social media outlets and it is so tempting to show your friends and family what you’re doing.

You can go to some of these sites, and know everything about an upcoming wedding…



“The” dress




I think that some (most) things should be kept quiet until the actual day. Don’t you think your guests want to be wowed as much as you want to wow them?

So, show off that engagement ring! Take lots of engagement pictures! Put them all over FaceBook!

Take lots of pictures of your showers and share them with friends. They will love to see them.


Make your Pinterest page hidden and invite key people to view it. You know, people like your mother, future mother-in-law, maid of honor.

Try not to put things on FaceBook. I know it’s hard! You’re excited! But try.

Your friends will want to know all the details. Have an answer ready. When I’m asked what my niece’s wedding is going to be like, I tell them




These words convey the emotion and feel of her wedding. But they don’t give anything away.

You will see some projects of mine on future blogs. Some of these are for her wedding; some are not.

I don’t want to give away her secrets!

And on her big day, all of her friends and family…and her lucky, lucky groom…will be wowed!


I will share one secret
