FOR YOUR BRIDESMAIDS: FORGET ME KNOT

Posted by Sarah Sweetz Akhza On 7:29 AM 0 comments

I love these adorable Forget Me Knot rings. Perfect for showing your bridesmaids how important they are to you! Available at Pauper's Bounty.


I just learned from a reader that my old pen pal, Rebecca Sokoloff, the woman behind the amazing brand The White Aisle lost her battle with an illness last month. I hadn't spoken to her recently. The last time that we touched base was last year and she was hanging in there. I had visited The White Aisle earlier this year to see how things were going and from her blog, it seemed that she was doing okay but not perfect. Funny how time rolls by. You plan to reach out to someone and then it is too late.

We will not be posting today. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband, Dade and her family and friends. Rebecca, you will be missed.





BRING WARM BEACHY MEMORIES TO YOUR WINTER WEDDING


As leaves fall from the trees, winds start to pick up, and temperatures begin to drop, it becomes all too clear that a frosty winter is on its way. If you plan to get married during the approaching chilly months, don’t worry…there are plenty of ways to incorporate warm thoughts into your wedding day! One of the easiest ways to add a cozy, warm ambience to your celebration is through the use of candles. Candles bring a romantic glow to any environment, as they mimic the sensation of sitting by a roaring fire. Take this warm feeling even further and remind your guests of their summers by the shore, with beach-themed candle wedding favors! 



There are so many different types of beachy candle favors, so it will be easy to find a few that fit your personality and the theme of your wedding. At American Bridal, they have sailboat candles, lighthouse candles, gel candles filled with seashells…anything you can think of for a beach-themed wedding, and they are sure to please your party guests!

These versatile candle wedding favors can be sent home with your guests, or as part of the d├ęcor at your event, and will definitely bring memories of summer, the sand and the sea to your wedding no matter what the temperature is outside!

NY BRIDAL FASHION WEEK: ANNE BARGE SPRING 2012

Posted by Sarah Sweetz Akhza On 1:11 PM 0 comments
Modern Wedding Dresses at Anne Barge

Modern wedding dresses walked the runway at Anne Barge. Her Spring 2012 collection was full of romance and softness with dresses covered lace in 3-dimensional embroidery and jewel-encrusted beading. Of course, there was the ode to Kate Middleton that was seen on almost all of the bridal runway show this season. There is a definitely call to bring back the modesty that brides once displayed on their wedding day.

NY BRIDAL FASHION WEEK: CLAIRE PETTIBONE 2012

Posted by Sarah Sweetz Akhza On 10:36 AM 0 comments
One of the best runway shows was Claire Pettibone, without a doubt. Totally creating a storybook tale with each one of these gorgeous gowns, Claire Pettibone stole the show at NY Bridal Fashion Week for me. When I actually saw these dresses in their booth, I was flabbergasted. But Claire Pettibone will do that to you. I would wear every single dress from this line. The french influence is very obvious in such an amazing way with all of the beautiful laces and daring silhouettes. Which one do you love?
