A very cute idea for a guestbook…The guestbook sits with a Polaroid instant camera, so people can take pictures to go along with their well wishes. Sounds more fun to me than a book with a list of names and “Best Wishes on your Special Day!”
Maggie Sottero! Ole! March 10, 2008
Everyone go check out Maggie Sottero. I’m quite sure I can’t afford any of these dresses, but I can’t wait to try some on!
And my absolute favorites:
We have a location!!! March 6, 2008
The pictures don’t really do it justice, though. It’s really cute and rustic and perfect! We also have a date: September 20, 2008. It’s finally starting to sink in…I’m getting married!
bar decoration December 20, 2007
I like the idea of floating candles….
“Since the bar at your reception will be a hub of activity, dress it up, but don’t clutter the surface: Try scatteringin glass holders and bowls, or place a pair of graphic-print at either end, acting as “bookends” and providing pools of light.”
Bridesmaids NOT from 1982 December 13, 2007
On the subject of bridesmaid dresses, I’ve found some gorgeous ones. Dresses that don’t look like bits of candy, or holiday decorations, or a big hair 80’s revival. From the Ann Taylor Celebrations collection.
I’d decided on truffle/ espresso brown as my main color almost immediately, and these dresses are exactly what I’d imagined for my bridesmaids.
on magazines and bridesmaids dresses. December 12, 2007
I have to admit, I love a good magazine. I subscribe to about six, and often buy more throughout the year. I have only bought one wedding magazine so far — the Martha Stewart one. Why? They just look so…saccharine. Pink fluffly clouds and little blue bridesmaids all in a row. And speaking of that, seriously? How can there still be so many ugly bridesmaid dresses out there?
For example, I googled “bridesmaid dresses” and clicked on the Macy’s link. The first page included the likes of this:
Um, yuck? My friends would disown me if I said, “Hey guys, how about I turn you into a shiny blue puffball for my wedding? With shiny blue flowers!” No? “Well, how ’bout we revisit the Dynasty years with a little see through top?”
“A Christmas tree ornament?”
“A lumpy stick of bubble yum?”
