Hello gorgeous! Rocking a new sparkler by any chance? If you’re newly engaged, first of all HUGE congratulations! And a huge welcome to carats & confetti!
If this is your first visit, let me fill you in- my name is Sherry and I started carats & confetti in 2016. I started in the wedding industry as most of us do- as a bride. As a compulsive planner at heart, I loved the wedding planning process but it wasn’t long before I realized that the resources I expected to find as a Bride just weren’t out there. Just like you, I pinned beautiful pins to my heart’s content and obsessively scanned great websites like The Knot or Wedding Bells but none of them gave me the kind of advice and inspiration I needed that focused on Maritime Brides.
I was determined to build a place where Maritime brides could find the right info and suppliers to help make their dream wedding happen…so that’s how carats & confetti came to be!
My intention is to provide a place where Maritime Brides can plan and design a wedding that reflects their personality and style and makes them stand out from all of the rest. In doing this, visitors gain the confidence and inspiration needed to plan and design their dream wedding day. You too deserve a stress-free and beautiful wedding that you desire. As your confidante in wedding planning, I have everything you need from la crème de la crème vendors, inspiration, and advice to have you designing the wedding day that you will absolutely LOVE.
So, let me show you around and help you get the wedding dreaming and scheming started!

This is your opportunity to flex your creative muscles, to celebrate your love and to share special moments with your favorite people throughout the planning process, as well as on the big day itself. Putting your wedding together is about a lot of little decisions and the décor is a huge part of the fun. I’ve put together all the inspiration you need from color schemes and décor ideas, to new trends in cakes, stationery, flowers, and décor. It’s all covered in the ideas and décor section on carats & confetti.

Ah, the wedding dress. The dress and all the other elements of style are a huge part of the fun of a wedding, so I dedicate an entire section to finding gorgeous gowns and tracking new trends.
