My dear friend Bella just got engaged, and the event just happened to fall on the date of her 30th birthday. And this weekend, while I was browsing a gift shop in Madison (and subsequently delaying my exit into the 99-degree heat), I stumbled upon this gem of an engagement gift--The Knot's Wedding Planner in a Box. Divided into categories like "reception", "bridesmaids", "flowers" and "food", each section contains cards in order that give an overview of exactly what to expect from each step in the planning stage, as well as the language to use when meeting with various planners and vendors. As a gal who writes about weddings but would have absolutely no clue the intricate details that go behind actually planning one, this is a gift I fully intend to buy for myself when the time comes. Hopefully Bella will feel the same way...and hopefully she'll be too busy to read this until I surprise her with the gift :).

Have a great weekend, and thanks so much for reading! See you back here on Monday!
