Another big trend for 2013 weddings is the use of the color mint. It really is a splendid color. Very cool and refreshing in tone and can be very theme inspiring. It lends it self well to a flowing beach front wedding, a small backyard wedding and even a large cathedral wedding. You can use the color in many ways and even the scent or flavor of mint at your wedding.  I have been scanning  through Pinterest to find some Pinspiration ideas to share with you. I hope these Pins inspire you as much as they have me.

Having your wedding outdoors this spring and summer?  Just because it's out side doesn't mean you have to be limited with you decor or even stifle you style.
Look at the fantastic wedding ideas
steampunk-wedding-083I love this one. They had their guest dress in steampunk or period dress  and created a canopy from branches, moss,lace, pearls and candles. It really gives the whole event such a Victorian literary romantic feel.

On a smaller budget? You could transform a simple backyard affair in to a whimsical  spring event. With some simple props. Here they strung large bulbed lights and unique umbrellas creating a fun and possibly inexpensive canopy for their event

Want to create a feeling of escape and magic? You could dos omething like this one, it is simply stunning. They transformed an average woodland scene into a dreamy almost magical escape by adding a moss ground cover. A soft fabric backdrop with lights behind it, candles and soft lighting along the isle.  The hints of silver in the accents add to the effect.
I hope some of these ideas inspired you for your own wedding. You can see more ideas on my event inspiration board on pinterest. 
You can also order sweet custom made crowns and halos for you, your bridesmaids and your flower girls from me as well as sweet flowing tutu flower girl dresses and brides maids tutus. Just go to my website and tell me what you are looking for and what kind of budget you have.  I will be more than happy to help you make your dreams come true.

My tutus make perfect outfits for birthday parties,dress up, weddings and photo shoots.
I can make a tutu any size and almost any color scheme you can think of.  My custom tutus and tutu dresses can be made as thick and full as you want.These type of tutus are perfect for fantasy to vintage weddings.  I also can make a ragatu ( tutus made of fabric), these are especially cute for country and boho weddings or events. Let's not forget both types are oh so cute for photo shoots like all those Easter and spring shoots that everyone is booking right now. They are also perfect and can be made inexpensively enough for a fun new play outfit. I also have the accessories to make them cute little outfits for any occasion.  Here are some pictures to inspire you.  To start your own custom order  click here.  Thank you for reading.

Preparing for any big event can be very stressful and planing a wedding is no exception. So when you are making your plans be sure to plan in some rest and relaxation for yourself and your soon to spouse and don't forget to do this for the two of you regularly after your big day.  Plan these times to be time for just the two of you with no discussion of your wedding, family or any other stressers. Plan something that is something that is for both of you to do together that is a neutral activity. This may even lead to a new hobby for the two of you to do together.
                Here are 10 date night ideas to inspire you whether you are planing your wedding or have been married for years. 

1. Dinner out - that's it just dinner out. Just spend an hour or more eating and talking with each other. This is a perfect way to reconnect.You can do this one with out breaking the bank by sharing a meal, watching for specials at your favorite places or even just going to McDonald's.
2. Hit your local mall - find a seat and sit and visit while people watching (pick out the couples that makes you  think you two) or walk around the mall like a pair of goofy teens taking pictures of the two of you through out the mall. This can lighten the mood and give you both a good laugh.
3. Go for a walk - Stroll through your neighborhood, at your local park or at perhaps even a city lake. Walking can help relieve stress and gives you two time to talk and just hang out.
4. TV time - Sure you watch TV all the time but take a night to make a deal of it. Pick a movie you both like, make a pallet in your living room, grab a ton of snacks and snuggle up.
5. Dinner and Dancing IN - sure sounds silly but really it can be so much more fun than doing it out. Plan a fun dinner and set up a space for the two of you to get your grove on after you eat.
6. Backyard Party for two  - mix up couple of your favorite frozen drinks and some appetizers. Set out the lawn chairs and plug in the radio to play your favorite music. Then just sit back, relax and enjoy the company.
7. Catch a show - Visit your local museum or go see the new ballet. Get a little dressed and make a night of it.
8. Go ice skating.  - sounds cliche but this is a lot fun and can bring out a lot of laughs especially if you both are capable ice skates
9.   Go for a shot - visit your local gun range together. There are usually lots of experienced people happy to help you and even if you have no desire to carry a gun it will be a time together you will be unlikely to forget.
10. Puzzle night - grab your favorite drinks and snacks, pick out a puzzle and sit around the table visiting and building the puzzle together. When the puzzle is all done. Glue it together as something to remember the fun time together.
 Well have fun and Thank you for reading.

Planning a bachelorette party or a bridal shower? Having a hard time finding that perfect gift for the bride to be?  Well I have some fun ideas for you to add to your festivities and some fun gift ideas too.

1. Grab a white t-shirt and a sharpie ...... Have your bride to be wear the shirt during your party. Have all of the guests and anyone else with well wishes sign the t-shirt during the party.

2. Plan some of these fun games from the knot http://bit.ly/YbdLup

3.  Story time..... Sit in a circle and have all the guests share some funny stories involving the bride to be and said guest. * remember to be nice with what you share this is for fun not to be mean or embarrassing

4. Scavenger hunt...... plan a scavenger hunt for the bride with fun things like... have a guy serenade you or loudly order an in appropriately named drink etc.

5. Paint ball...... do something unbachelorette party or bridal shower like and go do something like paint balling or take a cooking class.

6.  Slumber party.....enjoy a night of fun stay in spa and beauty, movies and perhaps a few games and drinks.

7. photo booth..... set up a fun photo booth for the guests to take pictures for a scrap book of the party for the bride.

8.Matching outfits.....Go out wearing shirts with your part in the big event on it or matching outfits like 80's themed or tutus( hint hint). Then take pictures as a group in as many places and as many times as possible.

9. boudoir...... Book a photographer and have fun doing each others hair and make up for some fun boudoir pictures. * Bonus the uninvited men get some really fun picture gifts for themselves.

One of the trends for weddings this year is expected to be 1920 styles. Which I just love. Those soft head fitting cloche hats and the bobs with their finger waves. Of course back then instead of curvy the emphasis was on flat so for all those not so well endowed brides to be out there this look will be for you. Plus that time era has such a romantic feel with the US coming out big onto the World Stage after WW1, things were prosperous  and many people ignoring prohibition( creating of what we know look at fondly ( as twisted as it is)of what a gangster should look like). Books like the Great Gatsby swirl with the romance of the time ( don't like to read the movie is coming this spring). The flat yet flowing flapper style dresses of the time were the first to allow girls to actually kick up their hills. Which is a perfect dress style for your reception. I personally love the hairstyles of the 1920's 30's and 40's as well as the hats. Both the hairstyle and the hair accessories/hats  were still so feminine but also modern,functional and fun. These hairstyles would be fun for your wedding style especially if you have short hair. A cute finger wave looks good in long and short hair. The make up back then was mischievous and fun with pale skin ( try a shade lighter than your own to achieve the look),dark smoky eyes, Cupid bow lips done in plums, oranges and raspberry colors, high thin eyebrows and soft cherry cheeks. Walk down the isle with these colors and you will turn heads. Your chosen stylist should be able to help you easily achieve these looks and maybe with a modern tilt to it if you so chose. Now for that walk and that dance later you may choose to take a close look at the 1920 style boon of T-Bar (strapped)heels. So loved and favored because the wouldn't slip off while dancing. You big day will not be the day to loose your shoe until you are ready to. Here are some awesome Pins I found on Pinterest showing some of the styles I mentioned in this blog from the 1920's.Thanks for reading.
