Planning a wedding is full of details, deadlines, and sometimes a bit of drama. Take a moment to sit still and focus on the wonder of the meaning of your wedding, that you have found someone to enjoy the journey of life. One way to illuminate the beauty of the moment is to light a candle. We just love the Forest Bathing candle from Anecdote. The fusion of green tea and lemongrass makes you feel like you are walking through a forest. The candle also has beautiful layers of jasmine, orange flowers, lavender, and citrus musk.
Remind yourself of the wonder of beautiful words and images with a beautiful wall calendar. Get organized and inspired with this lovely wall calendar from Rifle that features monthly illustrated quotes.
You can stay organized and comfortable by using a lap desk. This pinstriped workstation from Erin Condren allows you to stay organized no matter where you go. Whether you are cozy at home, grabbing a cup of coffee, or flying on an airplane you can work on wedding details in comfort.
