Ethereal and Romantic

May 26, 2010

Firstly, I sincerely apologize for the post-drought.  My husband and I were busy doing some small reno projects at home and I was away for the weekend.

As I’ve mentioned before, I love Etsy.  It’s basically a bride’s paradise, in my humble opinion.

In my search of wedding-related goodies, I came across this seller, Glamour Junkie, who makes some of the most gorgeous bridal cover ups I have ever seen!

The shrugs are so gauzy, soft, and feminine (my favourite looks!).  They kind of have a Lhullier-vibe going on, but for a much more friendly price tag.

LOVE this delicate flower shrug:

And this wrap is absolutely perfect to throw over your shoulders on a cooler spring wedding day or summer night, or even in a chilly air-conditioned venue:

“Purse Corsage” = Adorable!

May 17, 2010

These days, there are so many brides trying to find ways to inject uniqueness into their day.  One of the many ways to do this is by throwing tradition out of the window, such as having an alternative to bridesmaids bouquets.   I’ve seen the traditional handheld floral bouquets be replaced with things such as candles, fans, and feathers.

I think this is such a cute idea: the purse corsage:

It’s unique, yet still has a hint of tradition because it incorporates florals.  Plus, I think it’s tres fashion-forward.  You can even buy your maids’ clutches as part of their bridal party gift; or, better yet, have each of the maids choose her own clutch in a style that speaks to her.

The purse corsage is also very budget friendly.  Typical bridesmaids bouquets can range from $50-$75 each!  These are essentially a corsage on a magnet, plummeting the cost down to $15-$20 per arrangement.

I think these are simply fabulous!  Not to mention, a much more chic option for mothers who are dreading wearing an itchy corsage around their wrist…

Theme: Throw-Back Weddings

May 14, 2010

There’s nothing quite as easy as pulling your wedding together by ways of a theme. 

I was watching one of my favourite wedding shows, Rich Bride Poor Bride, and there was this couple on there who decided to have a 50’s themed wedding.  I thought it was such a fun idea.

If you’re into reading wedding mags, you’ll know that “vintage” weddings are one of the most popular themes at the moment.  Usually, vintage simply means using old-world influenced decor and attire.  Lace dresses, birdcage veils, ivorys and creams – get my drift?

However, if you want to take “vintage” a step further (ie: zoning in on a particular era and working it out), my friend and coworker introduced me to this fantastic site, The Whirling Turban.

Whirling Turban makes gorgeous 50’s-esque wedding dresses.  The best part is, they are completely customized and the prices are extremely reasonable. 

I could totally see these dresses being rocked with a birdcage veil, short red-creme nails, coloured sky-high heels, and some red lipstick – a la Christina Aguilera in her Marilyn period:

In the alternative, I think these would make great reception “party” dresses.  Extremely cute and fun (and what I mean by fun is that you can twirl in them… ;))

What do you girls think of the 50’s glam theme?  I think there’s just something about it that’s sexy yet classy at the same time.  Perfection.

Wanna be a Good MOH???

May 3, 2010

Alright, so, I’m not going to touch on every single thing that you should do to get top honours.  But this nifty gadget will sure get you in the good books!

Many wedding planners suggest that brides pack an “emergency kit” for the big day.  But really, who has time to actually carry a big bag around on the wedding day? 

Enter Miss Army Kit.  I first came across this great product when I received one as a gift from my wonderful gown boutique, White Toronto

The Miss Army Kit looks almost identical to the legandary “Swiss Army Knife”, but it’s perfectly suited for a bride.  It includes the following features, all wrapped up into one tiny, palm-sized package:

  • Bottle opener
  • Corkscrew
  • Empty perfume vial
  • Flashlight
  • Key ring
  • Knife
  • Mirror
  • Nail file
  • Needle and thread
  • Pen
  • Pill box
  • Ruler
  • Safety pin
  • Scissors
  • Screwdriver
  • Tweezers
  •  

    Cute right?  And you can just slip it in your groom’s pocket or in your maid of honour’s purse, and it will be at your fingertips all day long.

    For those of you who don’t have a boutique who will give you it for free, you can buy it off The Knot’s website here.

    After the wedding, throw it in your purse or glovebox and it will be a go-to item, I promise you!

    Hop to it, MOHs!  Show your bride you care!
