Wedding Dress Trends:  Find the Ramp Videos from famous designers on
Lace is still big this year and those with a great back will love some of the sexy wedding dress styles. Veils are back in big time. Short styles are also included  with all the design houses.   We love the use of LACE in this WATTERS Gown.

Invitation Trends:  Your photo personalizes many of the new looks for invites and save the date cards. Your engagement photos or selfies go a long way in announcing your intentions and building your web page.   Love the slim line invites that give room for your photos. Lacy, vintage styles still loom high, and the unique writing of calligraphy is being called upon by many.

Flower Trends:  Luxury weddings appear to be using less greenery and more of a flower bloom
statement, dripping with crystals, tall glass vases for table centerpieces.  Orchids, hydrangas in creamy pastels.  Seasonal flowers are always your best value.

Bouquet is by

Venue Trends:  Barn locations with the rustic and shabby chic look will soon be retiring. The  industrial look is on the rise.  We find gardens, ranches, estates, beach wedding sites and wine country venues head the list for brides in 2015.  Do your Wedding Planning Specific To Your Area. Find thousands of venues on

Theme Color Trends:  The neon bright tones are taking a back seat to the muted and romantic shades of  ivory, soft greens, beige, icy pinks and blue of every shade.

All WHITE Weddings Are Still In Style

Mobile Access on 

SUBJECT:  All White Weddings Are Still In Style

I don't think they will ever go out of style.  Of course the first question people ask you about the wedding is ..."What is your key-color?" Sometimes this takes a little more dialogue - All White is understood by women more than the guys?  So be prepared.  These are a few good tips to pass along on this creative venture.

                                               Some brides go wild with colors!!
Your choice...

TIPS on hosting an all white wedding...

1.  Choose your venue carefully for this style wedding. Preview sites with a checklist for carpets, walls and decor that can really cause the clash to all white weddings that.... you do not want.  I have yet to see white carpet in an event site....
2.  Understand there are 15 or 20 shades of start with with dress and linens on the tables.
3.  We have yet to find a totally white rose, mum or orchid. Most are creamy, beige, pink, champagne, ivory.
4.  When you state white wedding, it all begins with the wedding dress and invitations.
5.  White weddings work well year round.  
6.  Chair covers add elegance to your white table linens.
7.  Be prepared at hotels or banquet rooms in restaurants to pay more for "specific white table linens".
8. Some whites diminish a bride's beauty. Look at the whites of your eyes and skin tones for your best shade.

We would love your input on our blog to this creative white wedding ideas!!!

Sexy Wedding Shoes Are A Fun Addition To Your Wedding Wardobe

LOVE Those Shoes - So In Love Am I With Sexy Shoes.....But We All Must Take Sensibility To The Store When Shopping For Wedding Dress Shoes!!

Seven Questions To Consider When Selecting Wedding Shoes!

I love the glamour shoes on the market…..they make our legs and ankles look amazing! Having a bit of a shoe fetish myself, I have had to come to grips on what I buy for what occassion.

I see brides and brides to be - wearing some very unique shoes, fun colors, lace boots, platform shoes with strap-styles, and tights. There are great ideas for fun glamour style shoes to match their attire. I have also had to help brides who fell in them, and helped tuck wedding dresses around the ankle boots and casts worn for sprained and broken ankles.

Yes we have all been warned. Some of us are very adept at wearing very high heels. So whether you are great at wearing the 3-7 inch heels,  consider  these Seven Questions to think about as you select your shoes for your wedding day apparel. 

Consider how you look walling in the very high shoes You have spent all this money on a dress that you want to wear gliding down the aisle. With very high heels....The view of your body for most women is to lurch forward from the waist up - to keep the balance. Many look like they are taking a gallop....not what you want on the wedding aisle. So work on the posture and walk in your shoes well in advance if wearing very high heels.

When shopping for shoes, the questions are:

1. Can you wear them again with anything else? Do we want to be practical?
2. Are you on a beach, garden terrace or lawns with uneven steps at your venue?
3. Can you dance in them?
4. Can you score the bottoms of the soles so they do not slip on different surfaces?
5. How many hours can you stand in them without the shoes hurting?
6. Do you have strong ankles?
7. Do they make you taller than your groom?

Sometimes brides select two pair of shoes to wear on their wedding day.
Score the bottom of the shoe with a sharp knife to keep you from slipping on various surfaces.
Take a very good look/photo the fabric of your dress to match it out with color, fabric and style.
Flats and ballet style shoes work best on sand.

Love your comments & photos on wedding shoes...

Manhattan to Sonoma Wine Country Wedding Invitations & Unique Wedding Invites

Photo by

Your Wedding Invitations have a great deal to do with how formal or informal your wedding celebration will be. Various parts of the country are influenced by formality while others are "anything goes".
You are the best decision-maker on the theme, style and statement you want to carry through to your guests from your invitation.  There are some tips in this blog, but there is also an extensive article at covering major time line on completing the selection and mailing.  The invitation STILL sets the style of your wedding day celebration. There are so many fun ideas and beautiful papers to choose from with embossed, engraved, printed and monogram invites from various companies.   I'd Love To Have Your Input On This Subject!
Safety TIP...
Please, understand. e-mail is a great communicator, facebook, etc, your wedding webpage is a great communicator, but do not place your specific dates, times and places in these areas. There are so many break-ins while couples are at their wedding celebrations. (Hackers can find out when you are gone.)  Keep these announcements on your mailed invitations.

I suggest:  
  1. Once you decide on prevailing theme or style for your nuptials (you will find a great list here)
  2. Send out once you have the date Early "Save The Date" cards for destination guests and relatives.
  3. Short on budget...Choose a light weight invite so mailing is less expensive. You can find reasonably priced invites at Big Lots or the Dollar Stores and print them yourself.  Yes, there is not much we can do about the postal rates, but hand deliver as many as you can to bring costs down.
  4. Average cost to mail, if the weight is normal, for a first class stamp = two per invite, (one for the reply and one for the outer mailing envelope.

Wedding Rings & Men's Wedding Bands

***********Love to have your comments!!!

Subject:  Wedding Rings & Men’s Wedding Bands

                                                                              photo by

Most of you have favorite jewelers in your neighborhood and some may be shopping for rings for the very first time.  When selecting rings, couples sometimes look for a 3-ring set to match between them. While this is romantic, it may come with a few concerns. You like diamonds – he does not want them in his ring.  You like certain metals or have a metal reaction (allergy) to gold that is less than 18 carat. You are both very strong individuals and require different looks. He does not plan to wear a ring.  Whichever it is, you may appreciate some of the tips below.

  1. You are looking for the 4-C’s when shopping for diamonds; cut, clarity, color and carat size.
  2. We see many rings including the birth date gemstones or her favorite stone in the rings.
  3. Platinum, Gold, Tungsten, Silver and Wood appear to be favorites. In some parts of the world Ceramics are used. We are seeing couples purchase designer rings, vintage rings and those specifically created by goldsmiths.
  4. Many couples seek the jewelers who carry specific companies. Hearts on Fire, Graff, Genisis, Cartier, Tiffany, Verraigo.
  5. Even stones graded SI1 -- seven levels below flawless -- can seem perfect to the naked eye if the diamond is well cut.  There are some amazing cuts available on the market.
  6. Online shopping for rings might be fun to review styles, but think about the romantic connection of selecting your rings together at a local jeweler.
  7. Saving Money can be done by: look for less-popular shapes, notably ovals, hearts and marquise. In jewelry retailers, not purchasing name brand rings, purchasing only matching bands, use of a cubic zirconia as the main stone in the engagement ring, purchase from reputable pawn shops and consider an inherited family ring, plus jewelry wholesalers are places couples save.
  8. Should you purchase ring insurance. Some swear by it. Losing a diamond of any type can be pricey to replace. So much has to do with your budget and what you do with your hands.
  9. Always ask about the store warranty before purchasing.   You should have a 30-day return policy at a reputable store. Also your credit card or a department store will have a warranty on purchase.
                                   Find the jewelers with a great business history on
P.S. He has surprised you with a ring and you do not care for it. Re-sizing is one thing, but replacing the look takes a delicate discussion to not hurt his feelings. This happened to me. He knew I loved hearts and he purchased a heart shaped diamond. I loved it, but because I type/write so much, I knew it would be off my hand all too often, and with the chance it might get lost. I explained my concern, so we went in to see if we could find one that was a solid piece – both engagement and wedding. It never swings on my hand, and I always wear it.

HOT Weather Wedding and Reception - Tips & Ideas for Cooling Your Wedding Guests

Most of us understand timing for a wedding or event can run into some very hot circumstances. The Wedding Coach on offers some quick tips and ideas for your Wedding and Reception Guests.

There are methods to be more comfortable when the days are hot. It all begins with the location you choose.   When booking the location ask about the weather for the dates you are considering. Ask how they handle the extremes. If the site is not air-conditioned, you might consider booking the venue for early in the day ceremony and a brunch reception, or an evening wedding and celebration.

                                                        Photo by Judith Rivers-Moore - Tahiti Hot

Try to stay away from ceremonies during the hottest part of the day - from 1 to 4 pm in the afternoon. Also look for tree shaded event location if outdoors, or you can use umbrella tables for the lawns. We have found the modern tents can be rented with an air-conditioning set ups.

TIPS For Hot-Weather - Wedding Planning:

1. Beat the heat at your event by providing misters, now available from the party rental companies.

2.       Old fashion remedy under dresses is good old talcum powder near joint areas.  Also provide sun block for outdoor receptions/events - people sometimes forget to put it on.

3.       Rent Shade Awnings for lawn areas, especially helpful over food and beverage tables.

4.  Choice of lighter colors when it is a summer/fall wedding. Dark shades, black tuxedos or dresses make people appear hot and they do absorb more heat.

                                                              Photo by

5.  Plenty of water.  In pitchers, punch bowls and bottled, will quell the heat. Alcohol drinks heat up the body. A bottle of beer, hard liquor, or a glass of wine all have the same alcohol content. 

6. Hand held fans imprinted with your date and photo are a great keepsake and to provide guests. They can be personalized with significant photos, dates and event info for the guests.

7. Collect some fun sun hats at the used clothing stores and offer them at the entrance to your ceremony or reception.

8. Individual White parasols are lovely for the guests, but as a guest sitting behind them, it is difficult to see past an umbrella.

9. Someone feeling faint, seat them – place head down to knees, and place ice pack or cold cloth at back of neck.
