Wedding Organizers & Cultural Wedding Trivia


Wedding Organizers & Cultural Wedding Trivia

Inspiration Boards & BooksWith all the options available today for planning a wedding, making decisions on all the details, such as flowers, gowns and favors, can be overwhelming and difficult. Some brides say their weddings would have been easier, and possibly better, if they had been more efficiently organized because of the numerous details involved in planning. I’m a big fan of inspiration boards and books, or wedding workbooks. They can help you organize all of the details and ideas for your wedding.     Once you have an inspiration board or a wedding organizer, start collecting pictures of gowns, flower arrangements and even decorated reception halls that appeal to you. Categorize them so that all related items are on one board or page together...

A Trunk Show for Bridesmaids & How to Save Money On A Wedding Dress


A Trunk Show for Bridesmaids & How to Save Money On A Wedding Dress

LulaKate Trunk Show for Bridesmaids LulaKate is a Charleston, S.C.-based clothing company featuring bridal, bridesmaid and cocktail dress collections. It will be holding a trunk show at Bella Bridesmaid in Winter Park June 9-11. Bella Bridesmaid boutiques offer a refreshing and unique experience for the bridesmaid (and bride) to get personalized, one-on-one attention to select bridesmaid gowns from a variety of chic designers. Bella Bridesmaid carries LulaKate dresses, but for the trunk show it will have a few new styles as well as three bridal gowns (Bella Bridesmaid’s main feature is bridesmaid dresses and rarely has bridal gowns, so this is a special treat for maids and brides alike). LulaKate designs have become so popular because of their ability to mix-n-match styles,...

Choosing a Photographers & Kate Spade’s Wedding Collection

Selecting a Wedding PhotographerSelecting the right photographer to capture wedding memories can be just as important as finding the perfect dress and the ideal reception venue. Here are some key tips for interviewing potential photographers.      First determine your budget and what style of photos you want. Do you want a traditional or more modern approach to your images. Don’t underestimate the cost of photography – it usually takes up about 10% of the budget. Then network with trusted friends, colleagues and family members for referrals, and when possible, review their wedding albums. This will allow you to witness the photographer’s style firsthand and determine whether or not he or she can meet your expectations. If you don’t have any...

Trendy Hair Accessories & Mengagement Rings


Trendy Hair Accessories & Mengagement Rings

Unveil the BrideOne of the hottest 2011 trends, and one of my personal favorites, is vintage-inspired hair pieces that can pop on and off, including diamond-studded headbands, large flower blossoms (of varying colors, sizes and materials), feathers, tiaras, hairpins and combs and cage veils. Embellished headbands are made with crystals, pearls, flower, rhinestones or other chic accents intricately sewn onto silk ribbon ties, so they can be worn traditionally or across the forehead—some brides even opt to wear them as a belt to enhance or accent waistlines. These hot new hair accessories complement any hair cut or style, and they’re a great way to personalize your bridal ensemble with a look of sophistication and elegance. Designers are meeting the demand by featuring fewer...
