Wednesday Wedding Tip

Break in those shoes...

Brides, keep your feet happy by breaking in your shoes before the wedding and try cushion inserts. There is nothing more unflattering than seeing a beautiful bride walking around without shoes because her feet hurt - so not cute.

Peace and Blessings,

Art Deco Theme Wedding

I love all things glamorous and elegant and I think an art deco theme wedding can be both glamorous and elegant as well as stylish, and would be an ideal theme for any couple who wants to have a stylish and sophisticated wedding. Another thing I like about having an art deco wedding is that you won't see it at every wedding. Because I found the art deco period to be so inspiring, I decided to put together an inspiration board to display my take on an art deco theme wedding.

The look - It's swanky. The wedding dress should be slinky, elegant and very refined. It usually has both slim lines and sheen characteristics of the Art Deco era and it should be paired with the perfect accessories.

If the look is done right, the sophisticated and elegant flair of art deco design will create an unforgettable wedding.

Peace and Blessings,

Something Old, Something New, Something Sparkling

On October 25th, Ivanka Trump married Jared Kushner, publisher of the New York Observer, in a private ceremony at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Ivanka wore a custom Vera Wang gown and thousands of dollars of diamonds from her own fine-jewelry collection.
She wore these platinum mixed-cut clustered diamond earrings worth $130,000.
And this platinum diamond hairpiece to accent her veil worth $45,000. And she also wore an art deco link platinum diamond bracelet worth $90,000.

Talk about "something sparkling". You know what they are a girl's best friend!

Peace and Blessings,

Inspired By Flowers

On Nov. 4th, TLC debuted a new series called Flowers Uncut with Jeff Leatham. Jeff is a premiere floral designer who has been creating a sensation with his floral designs since he began working with flowers at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills in 1995. Jeff served as artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris and he was voted best hotel florist in Europe for three consecutive years. Now he has his sights on being just as successful in New York.
Jeff's work is a combination of his love for flowers and his passion for design.
Pictured above is Jeff's work in the lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel in Paris.

The picture below shows Leatham's design for Eva Longoria and Tony Parker's 2007 wedding in Paris.
Leatham's past clients also include Tina Turner, Janet Jackson and President Bill Clinton to name a few.

I love the way Jeff places the flowers at an angle and I absolutely love the bold, modern and oh so chic way in which he does his floral arrangements...such an inspiration! For scheduled programming for Flowers Uncut, visit TLC and click here to find out more about Jeff Leatham.
Peace and Blessings,

Think Outside The Box

The perfect wedding favor deserves the perfect favor box. There's nothing wrong with the commonly used 4x4 box, but why not think outside the box and choose a container that compliments the theme and style of your wedding. Here are a few unique favor boxes from Weddingstar:
