So get this. I have my wedding dress. It’s hanging in my guest bedroom right now. Just hanging there, waiting to be worn. But the problem is, it doesn’t fit yet. The straps are WAY too big and the length might be a bit short. So it doesn’t really feel like my dress yet. I love it, but it literally falls off when I have it on. Even though I know it can be altered and those issues can be fixed, I still get the “bride freak out” feeling. I always thought I wouldn’t be that girl because our wedding is so chill and there isn’t much to plan with a destination wedding. But I’m definitely being THAT girl right now. But everything can be fixed, right? RIGHT?!!

Over the weekend, I decided that the bridesmaids are going to wear mauve or blush. Yes, this is the first time in my life that I’ve ever used the word mauve. Either color will do. Which means I need to find both long and short dresses for the girls to choose from…and actually ask all my friends to be bridemaids. It’s hard when they don’t live here. Calling someone is hard, ok? I know, get your life together Juli. Problem is, short dresses aren’t exactly in season right now. I wanted to give my gf’s the short dress choice because after going to my first destination wedding, I noticed the girls were tying up or dragging their dresses everywhere since it was obviously hot as f*ck in Mexico. BUT, I know my thighs will be chaffing away as our wedding reception goes out because my dress is super tight, so maybe they should just be miserable with me? That seems fair.

The fiancé also asked me what he was wearing. I told him, in a slightly freaked out nature, “I don’t know, that’s your problem, not mine!!” I think of it as, he deals with his sh*t, I deal with mine. But that isn’t really how it works, is it? I think him and his boys are going to wear navy blue and grey. I think. How do you people decide this sh*t? I just don’t care. I wish I had all the money in the world to hire someone to plan it all. I just show up and it all looks nice. That’s a reasonable want.

Now for the veil. I want to wear one because there will never be a reason to wear another one in the future. But I’m on the beach, in Jamaica, where there will be wind. And the veil will be either in my face or ripping out of my hair. But I still want it. It makes you feel so bridey. Do I just go for it, knowing 99% of the time it will be annoying AF? Decision made. F*ck it. Going for it. Thanks for talking this out with me. You’re such a great friend.

For the streusel


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until combined.

  6. Bake for 30 minutes. While muffins are baking, make apple cider caramel.

    I was undecided because I felt weird wearing one, but ended up with a longish one and just wore it way in the back and down low…loved how it looked in pictures and it didn’t get in the way! But I guess it depends on how you do your hair…I just hate having things in my face lol

  2. Bonnie says:

    I just made these, along with the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. These came out great! Not too sweet so I’m excited to have an option for breakfast. Thank you!!

    Thanks for the recipe … I really needed this! And as for the veil … well, from a wedding photographer’s perspective… WEAR IT! Even if for just a bit. It really is beautiful in photos. And when it blows like crazy and gets in your face during the ceremony and makes you and your husband laugh … that will be a great photo : )

    Juli- I got married on a beach and I had a veil! It wasn’t that long and I don’t remember it being a pain in the ass. I say go for it!

  8. Diane says:

    omgosh!!!! You have NO idea how hot it will be! Our son’s wedding was this past June in Cancun and it was more then HOT! Be prepared for 500% humidity! Sticky, sweaty and just miserable…but that was June! Our DIL was absolutely the most beautiful bride and I wouldn’t have traded the laid back, gorgeous wedding on the beach for anything. ……well, maybe AC! 😉 Give your girls a break though….short airy dresses! And whatever you do have fun!

    -muffins look ahhhhmazeballs
    -blush dresses against the beachy scene sounds gorg
    -I say go for the veil. It blowing in the breeze will make for some cool pics.

    I’ve found that pink lady apples are slightly tangy/tart when snacking on them – are they still tangy/tart when baked? Or do they get a little sweeter?

      they get a little sweeter
