Monday’s Tips and Tricks Vol. 1 – Take your dress out of the bag

Posted in Uncategorized

We are starting a new series here on the blog titled – Tips and Tricks. Here we can share useful findings that may have occured from our previous events from the weekend or just share our observations in general.

One thing I see time and time again are brides not taking their dress out of their bags after they pick it up from the salon. This step is CRUCIAL. If your dress is left in the bag for several days after pick up, there will be wrinkles in your dress that may take hours to remove depending on the length.

If you are living with your Fiance and you do not want to him to see your gown, make arrangements to leave it at a family members house or in a locked room.

I am in the process of planning my first Sweet 16. No not mines (for some reason they were not a big deal back then), but another little diva for next weekend. Can’t wait to share the pics with you. And let me tell you ever since My Super Sweet 16 from MTV, it has been every little girl’s dream to have a sweet 16 to surpass her school friends. Sorry boy ellyB I rather send you to an amazing getaway.

Milla and Paul Wedding Pics

Posted in Uncategorized

You know we have a thing for celebrity wedding pics. We find it interesting to see how their weddings played out and what elements they focused on. Here are the weddings pictures of Mila Jovovich and Paul Anderson.

Here are the details we are loving:

  • They had a small intimate 50 person wedding
  • Their two year old daughter was their flower girl
  • Her reception dress was simple but totally evoked her style
  • The tie Paul wore complimented the suit well
  • The bouquet…need I say more?

Color Inspiration – Orange and Steel

Totally inspired by room decor found on Desire to Inspire, I can see that orange and steel making a huge scene as event decor. After viewing the image above we surfed the web to find the best images that would compliment the area. When I look at the picture above I see it as a lounge area but not using the traditional white lounge furniture.

Inspiration Station – Plaid Designs

Posted in Uncategorized
Another oldie but goodie pattern is the use of plaids. You do not need to go overkill and have plaid in every visible space, but instead infuse the bold pattern in little accents and details.

Love the below idea of bringing in the pattern on the base level of this cake below or you can even just use the design on the cake stand.

Use it on your cookies, cupcakes or petit fours sporadically.

Loving the plaid bows on these gifts.

Inspiration Station – Flag Garlands

Posted in Uncategorized
When you think of gardens, instantly what comes to mind are silk florals that are usually placed throughout an event space. Not anymore! Garlands can be anything from flags, florals, lanterns, etc. They can also be made out of several different materials. The key to making your garland a success is to mix it up using different colors, shapes and sizes.
