Proof that metallic’s are back!

Posted in Uncategorized

As most of America prepares to watch the Grammy’s tonight (thinking I need to do my commentary on twitter tonight so follow along @ellybevents), there were tons of pre Grammy parties with magnificent dresses to match.

We all know that if you want to be up on the latest fashion trends from the runway, it will be proven at the awards ceremonies.

Here are some of the fashions from all of the pre-grammy parties:

Inspiration Station: Buffet Action Item

Posted in Uncategorized

So some of you may be having a brunch wedding and cannot incorporate things such as the Smore’s Bar or even the Hot Chocolate Bar. I encourage you to get creative. There are so many things you can do to have an action station.  Pick one core item and provide a variety of toppings and options. Such as:

  • Pancake or French Toast staion
  • Waffles
  • Omelets
  • Oatmeal or other hot cereals
  • Parfaits

Toppings can include but are not limited too; real fruit, whip cream, various syrup flavors, cookies, candies or nuts will do!

Posted in Uncategorized


We are so excited to announce that tomorrow morning on WeTV we will be on the Get Married show. The show will be coming on at 9:30 AM EST.

We just love the producers and staff over at Get Married.  OK you are being warned, I did not get a chance to see this before hand so I have no idea which topic I will be discussing or how many times I said Um!

Check it out and let me know what you think.  We are excited and humbled by the opportunity. We will post the video as soon as it is available.

Alice in Wonderland theme inspiration from Wed Luxe Magazine

Posted in Uncategorized

Today I posted my interview with Angela Desveaux on the Eventology 2010 blog. I am absolutely smitten with this publication and the blog posts that Angela posts.  One that caught our eye is the Alice and Wonderland theme shoot that was sent over to her by one of her fashion photographers.

We will also be using this fun and unique theme for the Not Wedding 2010, but definitely with a twist.

Will you be going to see the movie? Would you use this theme as a bridal luncheon?

About the Gown Sale

The Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to granting last wishes for men and women suffering from Stage 4 (metastatic) breast cancer, has received thousands of wedding gowns for its "Brides Against Breast Cancer" Nationwide Tour of Gowns.

On January 28, 29 and 30, the Tour will return to Atlanta with a truckload of grand and beautiful bridal gowns from well-known sources in sizes ranging from 2 to 44. Most gowns in the collection have been donated by members of the bridal industry; some are runway samples, modeled at recent Market shows. Others are gifts from individuals across the country.

The selection – one of the largest assembled in the U.S. — will include hundreds of current styles from a long list of well-known designers and manufacturers at unbelievably low prices. An impressive array of veils, crinolines and other accessories will also be offered.

Most gowns have been marked down 40% to 75% below traditional salon prices. Prices range from $99 to $799 for values to $3,500. A collection of Designer and Couture bridals retailing to $8,000 will also be included, with none priced higher than $2,499.

For the past 5 years, Lei Lydle, Founder of AtlantaBridal.com, has chaired the Atlanta Brides Against Breast Cancer Gown Sale and her team has raised over $175,000 for the breast cancer organization, Making Memories.

Video Save the Dates – Yay or Nay?

Posted in Uncategorized

I was reading NY Mag daily intel over the weekend and came across this article about Video Save the Dates.  The author thought this would be an annoying trend that would be sure to hit the scene after the viral wedding dance video from 2009, you know the one where the couple was dancing dial the aisle with their entire wedding party? So the writer was for sure she would be inundated with the surge of these kind of videos.

And I say BRING IT ON!  I think this is a wonderful idea!  I mean let’s face it, it’s all about being visual and showing a sense of personality.  What better way to do this than to make a video showing your journey and where you will begin your love together all in under four minutes!

Take a look

Save the Date Wedding Video


Now what do you think? I thought this was so cute but will draw the line when it comes to wedding invitations, that is not the way to be green!

We won an award!

Posted in Uncategorized

We were delighted this week to know we won the Bride’s Choice Award from Wedding Wire  for the second year in a row. Thank you to all of our previous clients that have left their wonderful review of our services.  We look forward to maintaining our high level of service for years to come.

Plaid Details

Posted in Uncategorized

Loving this photo I found today on Polka Dot Bride’s blog.  The couple successfully incorporated plaid touches throughout their celebration without going overboard.  It is so great to see how their personality was infused throughout their event.

Head over to Polka Dot’s blog to see the rest of the celebration.
