Time to cut the cake!
One of the first things we do when we walk into the ballroom of the wedding is take a glance of the cake, and then take a picture of it. Well, if you have the pleasure of seeing one of these cakes at a wedding, you definitely don’t want to miss it. I’m talking about hand-painted wedding cakes. This is a new trend and if you can find a great baker who can paint, you’re in luck....
"On Wednesdays, we wear pink!" - Mean Girls
Spring is finally here! With that, we think of fun colors and we think of PINK! For a classic spring wedding incorporate your pinks without the overkill making it look like a bridal or baby shower. To do this, stay away from mixing your lighter pinks with your brights. Try not to do stark white cloths against crazy big pink centerpieces and hot pink napkins as this can create an imbalance. Work...
A beautiful dress, for less!
Weddings can be expensive but what many like to focus their money on is the entertainment and food. Priorities are spread differently depending on the couple but what many brides would agree about is how they cant fathom spending all that money for a dress they’d wear for one night. We can all appreciate a beautiful dress (especially me) and many brides will state “my dress is...
Many a times we look back at old photographs and cannot believe what we see and how anyone could have worn what they did. But not Grace Kelly. She was the absolute epitome of a flawless bride. Check out the photographs below - and her tiny waist! She was absolutely beautiful and the lace gown and veil complimented (not overwhelmed) her. This look is nothing short of classic and elegant. Clearly...
Why a good seamstress matters
Many brides choose to purchase their gowns through e-commerce (new or used), sample sales, and off the rack leaving the bride to find her own source for alterations. No matter how you purchase your dress it is extremely important to trust your seamstress. With poor alterations your gown will not look the way it should at its best. Even if you spent $10,000 on your gown - bad alterations will...
Need something blue?
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something BLUE. What can you do that’s blue? Well, lots of things actually! Some girls sew blue ribbon into the dress, go for blue shoes or blue undergarments. If you’re not the type to wear anything like that, then how about sewing in the date of your wedding inside your gown? I’ve seen this and its quite charming. If you have a...
If you love it, buy it.
Many women feel that they need to try every dress in the world before buying “the one.” Ladies - don’t stress yourself this way. This will lead to confusion, frustration, and ultimately will take the experience away. If you find a gown you love, stop right there. There’s no point in seeing if there is something different you’ll love more. If you go in that direction,...
The black & white wedding concept
I’ve seen it, I’ve heard it, and yes if it’s done right - it’s beautiful. I’m talking about the “black & white” wedding theme. To achieve this look successfully you don’t need to put a black sash on your dress or a white sash on your bridesmaids dresses. Keep it simple. The main color of your wedding should be white/ivory and only accented with...
Lets talk about YOU
I truly believe that a wedding should be about you and your partner. Lets face it, your parent(s) had their time, and now its yours. When it comes to your dress, accessories, and color, make sure you keep yourself in check by doing what you love. On a daily basis you can make any decision you like and that shapes who you are, so why should your wedding be any different? I have plenty of brides...
