It’s time we bring a little bit of fun to you as you claw your way through this Thursday in search of the weekend.

If you’re a Maid of Honor or groom and you’re struggling to find a gift for the bride, we have the perfect solution: glow in the dark undies! Yes, they do exist thanks to Cosabella. And yes, it’s kind of hilarious (we laughed the first time too), but yet there’s just something about the set that makes them perfect for the bride on her honeymoon.

Nothing says fun like a glowing bra and panty set in a feminine floral lace pattern. The instructions state to charge your undies under a light for 10-12 minutes, or out in the sun for 3-4 minutes. The glowing effect will last for 5-10 minutes, just enough time to get the party started.  Made in Italy from high … [read more]

Incorporating Family Heirlooms into Your Wedding

Vintage handkerchiefs for your wedding day

Over the years I have been asked many times how to incorporate family heirlooms into a wedding day, and most often the person who asked for my advice didn’t consider ideas on a smaller scale. When thinking “family heirloom,” most of us think of jewelry, furniture, and larger or more valuable items. Taking a small item and incorporating the idea of that item can be a fun way to celebrate loved ones passed on, as well as those who simply could not attend your wedding.

I carried my grandmother’s white lace handkerchief when I was married, in honor of her since she could not physically attend my wedding. I wrapped the handkerchief around the stems of my flowers and secured it with a pearl post. Take the idea a few steps further…utilize a basket full of vintage handkerchiefs, to be given out at your wedding to collect tears of joy, … [read more]

Macaron Heaven

It is Wednesday, which means Friday is now visible on the horizon. We thought to share something delicious in case any of you find yourself in the dreaded mid-week slump. We love our desserts, and it is exciting to see how creative people are getting when it comes to serving them at weddings. The standard wedding cake has morphed into towers of cupcakes and bouquets of intricately designed cake pops. Today the focus is on a dessert starting to make its own appearances on the wedding circuit: the macaron (not to be confused with its richer, slightly chunkier sister the macaroon). Easy for individual serving, and easy to customize. Each disk of French delight can be placed on a wedding cake or completely replacing it in a stack of color. They also make great additions to bridal showers.

Our ears are to the ground, and we’d … [read more]
