Congratulations to all of the newly engaged couples! Happy New Year everyone, the #coquigirlgang is certainly excited for the things to come this year. As we reflect on 2017, we are thankful for all of the amazing #coquicouples we had the pleasure of working with and the amazing customers in our store as well! We have many exciting things to come this year including the launch of our Collection by Coqui and other secret projects! We look forward to meeting everyone in booth #507 this weekend at the Wonderful World of Weddings at Wisconsin State Fair Park. We are also fortunate to have the amazingly talented calligrapher Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill returning to our booth. Please stop by to have your names written out and say hi! Our gift to you and sample of her beautiful work available for envelope addressing, and calligraphy on your invitations.

Elizabeth and Denise stopped by The Morning Blend to talk about our favorite trends for invitations and show some of our favorite recent designs. Check it out! :)

Friday Favorites: All That Sparkles

Happy Friday, lovely friends! This week on Friday Favorites we're obsessing over all things glittery and know... "all things calm, all things BRIGHT!" We wish you the merriest Christmas and New Year! Catch ya in 2018, y'all! 

Warmly, the #coquigirlgang

Day 20 of our 25 Days of Christmas! I walked into Starbucks this morning and noticed there wasn't any Christmas music playing! In previous years, I thought Starbucks played Christmas music round-the-clock! The barista looked at me and dryly said, "I hadn't noticed. But it's nice having anything other than Christmas music play." I smiled, turned around, and as soon as I walked away, "Feliz Navidad" started playing. The barista shouted, "Look what you've done! Thanks a lot!" HA! I'm always spreading Christmas cheer! • My LEAST favorite Christmas song is "Feliz Navidad," with "Dominick the Donkey" being a close second. • What's your LEAST favorite Christmas song? Comment below! • #theprdolls #dollspartypretty
