Something Blue for Your Wedding

Every bride wants that something blue for her wedding day; but why do something boring? Carrie Bradshaw had the right idea.

Now I admit up front that I am a shoe girl, Imelda Marcos in training if you must know. 😀 If you are like me and can rock heels with out it causing you too much effort, why not pick one of these lovelies? Besides, you can wear them after the wedding.What better excuse can you think of to buy a great pair of heels?

Something Blue

Then again, if rocking’ heels isn’t your thing for your wedding day there is always this little number. You will be wearing it after the big day too!

Will Blog for Wedding Gown

Mon Cheri Bridal GownMon Cheri Bridal, one of my favorite bridal fashion houses is launching a new blog, ItsABridesLife.com and they want you to be a part of it. Cindy Horne called me the other day to tell me all about it. Cindy is looking for brides across the spectrum, from DIY to platinum princesses, that want to get involved and share their story.

To sweeten the deal, the brides chosen to be bloggers on ItsABridesLife.com will receive a bridal gown from one of the six Mon Cheri Collections. They will hook you up with a local salon that handles the Mon Cheri lines so this won’t just be a ‘gown in a box’ type of giveaway. Part of their reasoning is that they want brides to see the difference that having a really good, full service salon in your corner can make.

About the blog:

ItsABridesLife.com will include daily blog entries from a diverse group of brides from engagement until they return from their honeymoon, covering the entire wedding planning process from beginning to end. Each blogger’s biography will be provided on the site. (Other features: Photo/Video galleries, Advice from experts, Where they are Now, and more)

You can read the full details here.

Looking for a Few Good Brides 3-12-10

On another note, if you are a wedding professional and want to be considered as a contributor of expert advice, you can contact Cindy too. Here contact details are in the attached pdf.

Creative Masculine Boutonnieres

Maybe it’s just me, but I prefer my men to be men. Thoroughly masculine creatures and proud of it. One of the few places a man gets to express himself in his wedding is in his boutonniere. All to often what happens is a bride sits down with her floral designer and the result is a totally feminine bout designs to please the aesthetics of the bride. WRONG!

Witness this atrocity from an earlier post:
