One of the most iconic moments in a wedding is the cutting of the cake. The cake ceremony signifies the couple’s union and their promise to provide for each other. As you can imagine, a lot of time and importance is placed on the selection of the perfect cake. Continue reading
Have I mentioned that I’m slightly obsessed with 2015 trends? Not only am I seeing a rise in elegant, British-inspired affairs and off-the-shoulder gowns that scream romance (….my need to bring Pride & Prejudice to life is growing immensely), but the popular color palettes of 2014 — which featured pops of bright colors — are being toned down and refined into muted, monochromatic selections.

The 2015 bridal runways were overtaken by a revival of romance. Dresses featured layer upon layer of tulle, exquisite lace, detailed beadwork, soft gray and blue colorations, and so many more small yet statement-making details. One of my personal favorite trends from the 2015 runway was the off-the-shoulder neckline. There’s something so romantic, and subtly sultry, about showing off a little shoulder. It gives off just the right amount of “va va voom” without overdoing it. Continue reading
I find that there’s nothing better than an impactful decor element that’s created from an everyday product — especially when said everyday product is extremely affordable and/or reusable. The next featured item in this series is the always reliable tin can. Tin cans can be purchased in grocery stores, craft stores, hardware stores, or even rented from a multitude of event rental companies. Better yet, your tin cans can simply be old soup or vegetable cans that were used for this week’s meals. Tin cans are an essential base for a multitude of decor items — chandeliers, mobiles, centerpieces, decorative votives, lanterns, you name it! Continue reading
I find that there’s nothing better than an impactful decor element that’s created from an everyday product — especially when said everyday product is extremely affordable. To start off this series, I will highlight one of my favorite hidden decor gems…ribbon. Yes, ordinary ribbon that can be purchased in grocery stores and craft stores the like. Ribbon is a trim that is associated with a multitude of mood descriptors. Continue reading
I mean seriously…no words are needed to describe how amazing this dress is. Definitely the biggest dress crush of the day!
Many brides envision themselves in a beautiful, strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline–others envision themselves in a dress that may not require the always necessary occassional strapless-dress-pull-up. The 2014 wedding runways spotlighted one of these non-pull-up-required options–a cap sleeved wedding dress. These cap sleeves ranged from sleek, sheer fabrics to ornate, dainty laces. It’s a sleeve style that can add almost any mood to an ensemble. The dress could be classic and 50s-inspired, an uber femine piece, or even simply add a desired air of modesty. Continue reading
Over the past year, we’ve seen wedding dresses transform from traditional, white garments to colorful, texturized pieces that blew minds. Well, we can definitely say that bridal designers have done it again. Metallic was a major trend seen on bridal runways this Spring. These gowns didn’t just have the typical metallic accents we’ve seen in the past. These collections featured gowns that were full-fledged metallic in their coloration–gold, silver, bronze, copper, you name it. Talk about an “upgrade” on a previous major trend. We are definitely in love with these metallic looks! Continue reading
