Wedding Dress Trends: Pink-A-Boo!

Recently, there has been a great deal of pink in the wedding world. It seems as though this years top designer have caught the case of Pink Fever and we love it! Designers are taking spring and summer colors and applying it to weddings. This is great news for fashionistas! Our favorite designers are now applying a more fashion forward look to their wedding dress lines! More and more wedding dresses are becoming avant-guard and non traditional.

My all time favorite dress is the Oscar De La Renta pink ballgown. The must have dress of the season features a sweetheart neckline, a fitted bodice that includes beautiful drapping and a glorious skirt complete with satin finished edges! Can any of my followers say, “To Die For?” The dress takes a conventional silhouette and makes it completely new and exciting by using a light pink blush color instead of the classic white or ivory.

These dresses are not for the shy bride. Someone who wears a pink wedding dress is bold and unique. The light blush color keeps with the wedding theme but still goes outside of the box. I think I am in Love! Can I get married again?….Please?

What do you think? Are pink wedding gowns too much for a wedding or would you go for a pink wedding dress!?

Something Blue…For Him!

The long time tradition of the bride carrying something borrowed, blue, old and new began in order to give the bride good luck on her big day. This tradition has lasted the test of time and is something that we still take part in, even today. These days however, there is always a spin on old traditions. Why not get your hubby to be something blue as well. (I’m sure he will love the extra luck!) Think about it, getting married for a man is just nerve wrecking as a woman getting married. Sure they don’t stress about the same things but trust me, they are stressing!!!! Try the Johnnie Walker Blue Label! It is one of my all time favorite gifts to give as well drink! It is aged to perfection and comes in a super cool box!

The Importance of the Wedding Invitation and How to Select the Perfect Invite

The invitation is one of the most important elements of a wedding. The invitation clearly defines the wedding and all that it will encompass. Is your wedding casual or extremely formal? Will your wedding take place in a quiet and serene garden overlooking a beautiful fountain, or will it be hosted in a grand ballroom with imposing chandeliers and damask walls? The type of invitation you choose will allow your guests to take a glimpse into your wedding. Your guests will be able to see your defined wedding colors as well as your theme.


Most people have trouble selecting an invitation. This is understandable. There are many options to choose from in these modern times. It is quite easy to get flustered and confused when it comes to selecting your perfect invitation for your wedding.

The first thing to consider is the budget. Before you can decide what invite you want, there must be a defined budget. This will tell you what type of invitation you can afford and what details you can splurge on.

In order to decide what design you want, some research will need to be done for images. Look online, print images, tear through magazines, etc. Compile these images to get a feel of what you are truly looking for. These images should relate to your wedding theme or style.

The next thing to consider is the design. Choose a design that best fits your wedding style or theme. At this point do not worry about the extras, such as embellishments. Simply look for the basic design of your invite. Is it more casual or formal? Are you a minimalist or do you prefer intricate work? These are questions to consider when selecting your design.

After you have considered your design, look into color and printing options. Usually the more colors used, the higher the cost. If you are trying to keep the cost down select only one to two colors. The cost also depends on printing techniques. Factor in these options when deciding on what invitations you want for your special day.

If there is room in the budget consider the extras. Details can change the overall look of the invite. Extras such as ribbon details, Letterpress printing, jewels or charms, hand calligraphy and sashes will enhance the look of your invite. Consult your designer for additional enhancements they may provide.

Finally, with all the information and preferences you have gathered take it to your invitation designer of choice. The design process will be a great deal easier if you know exactly what you want. Be sure to ask questions on anything that you are unsure of in order to get the end result that you need.

Choosing the perfect invitation is a very time-consuming and drawn out process. The decision process takes a great deal of research and communication with your designer. However if you are truly dedicated to expressing your vision, the end result will be beautiful invitations that guests will appreciate.
