A New Take on Traditional Cake Toppers

Wedding cakes should compliment the overall style and theme of the wedding reception, so if the style of the wedding is traditional, a bride might want to consider using a traditional cake topper - a replica of a bride and groom. Now the traditional bride and groom cake topper has a modern flair and many couples use them to this day. Here are a few traditional cake toppers now with a modern flair.

What a cool way for the couple to add a personal touch that reflects their personality. More of these whimsical cake toppers can be seen on Weddingstar.

Peace and Blessings,

Wednesday Wedding Tip

What would you do if you received a reply card back with no name filled in? Save yourself a huge headache trying to figure out who the card belongs to by inconspicuously placing a small number on the back of each reply card before enclosing it with the invitation. Use a list to record each guest's name along with the number on the reply card you are enclosing for them, so if someone forgets to fill in their name, a quick glance at your list will tell you precisely who the reply belongs to.

Peace and Blessings,

Luxury Tablescapes

Last month I attended a Bridal Luxury event hosted by The Atlantan Brides magazine. This event was a bridal show "kicked up" a couple of notches. It included fine foods and drinks, as well as a fashion show with fabulous fashions from Anne Barge, Bella Bridesmaid, Etain, Heidi Elnora (Project Runway's season 2 contestant), J. Andrew's Bridal, Priscilla of Boston and Savvi Formalwear.

While I enjoyed the fashion show, I especially enjoyed the featured tablescapes. They were so inspiring. Enjoy the photos and inspiration boards by TLS Elite Events.

Vendor Spotlight - Fotographa

Last month I attended a wedding industry event where I met Hilarye Schoyt, the wonderful photographer taking pictures that night. Hilarye's company, Fotographa (love the name BTW) is a wedding photography boutique. Once I saw the pictures she had taken of the event, I had to see more, so I took out her business card and proceeded to her website and then to her blog. What I saw was pure amazement! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the pictures taken by Fotographa speaks volumes - talk about capturing delectable details and just the right light and vibrant colors and real moments. Fotographa knows how to capture the essence of the moment and that is exactly what was done during Tiffinie and Bill's (pictured below) wedding. I loved all the pictures taken of Tiffinie and Bill's wedding, but I have to share a view of my favorites, like this picture of the groom. Look at his eyes. I'm willing to bet he shed that tear when he saw his beautiful bride walk down the aisle.
Love this picture for the same reason as the one above. Look at her eyes. She looks so excited and what bride wouldn't be excited on her wedding day.
I love the details in this photograph, especially how vibrant the colors are.
In this picture, I love the whimsical way it looks as if the lion is guarding the dress. you can see, I am now a fan of Fotographa. Click here to see more photos and experience art + photo journalism at its best!

Peace and Blessings,
