The Perfect Wedding Dress for Your Body Shape

I was looking through Brides Magazine the March/April edition. I know it is an old issue but it has some really good information in it! Anyway I found this article on how to pick a wedding dress to flatter your figure. I felt this was a very informative article and I had to share it with all of you because the most important part of any wedding gown is that you look good in it. I recently purchased my wedding gown and I ending up getting a draped A-line gown to compliment by pear shaped body. Anything to cover those hips! J I hope this helps you as well.

Ribbon Centerpices

ribbon centerpiece

Here is a pretty little centerpices idea. Bring varied, commonplace cylinder vases into beautiful harmony with an easy ribbon treatment. You can also use tin cans and wrap the ribbon around those. The medium to small size metal coffee cans would be perfect. Choose ribbons in various widths and colors that match your palette, in satin, grosgrain, or both. Cut the ribbons 1/2 inch longer than the circumference of the vase. Wrap around vase, side by side or layered, using double-sided tape to secure. Source

Christmas in July!: Snowflake Wedding Cake

snowflake cake

This has to be one of the prettiest cakes I have seen! Leave it to Martha Stewart to come up with such a wonderful idea. This cake is as magical as the season’s first flurry. Snowflakes made from royal icing are miniature at the top of the cake and larger at the bottom, giving the impression of a gracefully drifting snowfall. The tiers are frosted smoothly with Swiss meringue to resemble tightly packed snow.

Tools and Materials
Snowflake images in various shapes and sizes (select from computer fonts or clip-art books)
Baking pan
Parchment paper
Clear tape
Medium pastry bag fitted with an Ateco #2 round tip
Royal icing
Decorations such as white dragees or celeri
Pearl-dust food coloring
Lemon extract
Unused paintbrush
Offset spatula.

Snowflakes How-To
1. Photocopy snowflakes, reducing or enlarging them to be 3/4 to 4 inches.

2. Tape photocopies and then parchment paper onto back of baking pan.

3. Fill pastry bag with royal icing. Holding bag so tip is 1/8 inch above parchment paper, pipe icing to trace snowflake. Before icing dries, trace over snowflake two more times and add decorations with tweezers, if desired. Repeat for all. Let piped snowflakes dry 2 hours before painting or removing from parchment paper.

4. For a glimmering effect, mix pearl-dust food coloring with lemon extract (make small batches, since extract evaporates quickly), and brush on in a thin layer. Let dry, then use an offset spatula to carefully lift snowflakes from parchment paper. Icing snowflakes may be stored in a single layer in an airtight container for several weeks. Source

Fall Wedding~ Flower Girl Basket Option


The traditional thing to do is to have your flower girl toss flower petals at the wedding. However this is not the only thing you can do. If you are having a fall themed wedding, you can fill her little basket with leaves. This is a great option because they are free and they are festive. But if you don’t like the mess of real leaves you can always get the silk ones from the flower store and they will still be perfectly stunning, just a little cleaner.

Everyone loves cookies and has fond memories from their childhood of getting cookies out of the cookie jar. I remember making cookies with my grandmother and her allowing me to sneak them out of the jar before dinner. I can still picture that cookie jar! Well, this little favor is a great way of stirring up found memories for you guests as well by giving them their own mini cookie jar. These favors are super cute and in expensive to make. You can buy store bought cookies or make your own.

So easy, but so impressive, don’t you think? Source

Oslo Wood Invitations

I have never seen wooden invitations before I came across Olso Press Products, and I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first. However, now I am totally sold and I think they are simply beautiful. There is such intricate detailing in the wood and it is something totally different and unique.

The company was formed in a very interesting way. The designers Glenwood & Jen where searching for invitations for there own wedding. They wanted something fun and unique but could not find what they where looking for so they decided to design their invitations there selves. The name comes from the family cat. They named the company after the cat because his long white fur makes him appear glamorous and regal; he is still a playful, curious, and sometimes shy creature. This was the perfect representative for there product! While the designs are very regal they also have a bit of a playful edge about them. I love then and think they are definitely worth checking out! Check it out!

Tribute to Loved Ones

loved ones

The Idea: Create a tenderhearted tribute to loved ones—living and deceased—by displaying framed heirloom photographs on your reception tables. It’s a great way to personalize your affair and spark conversations. Simply ask friends and family to lend you their old photographs (think black-and-whites of Uncle Jim out on the lawn or a snapshot of a great aunt aboard a cruise ship), have them framed, and then place them at tables where your guests will recognize the subjects.

This idea comes from and I absolutely love it! It is away to pay a special tribute to everyone you love dearly. It is also away to make love ones who passed become part of you special day.
