Simply, Beautiful


Instead of spending a fortune on makeup artists, try doing your make-up yourself or having a best friend do it for you! And if you absolutely go for having somene else do your makeup, just remember to look.. simply.. beautiful!

Centerpieces going to waste?

Try having edible centerpieces at your pre-wedding events. They won't go to waste, look great, and taste even better.

Going nontraditional?

Have a karaoke machine or chocolate fountains at your reception. Breakaway centerpieces double as favors. Instead of clinking glasses to share a kiss, have your guests share a memory of you and your groom. Have your bridesmaids carry mini wind chimes.

I Do Declare!

We just posted a new article about writing your own vows!  Check out the "good word" HERE.

A Friendly Affair

Want to make your ceremony more personal? You can have a close friend or family member officiate your ceremony. Some States allow people to become a Deputy Commissioner of Marriage for a day. Check with your Secretary of State's office or county clerk's to find out if this is accepted in your state.

I love it.


I can't stop staring at this, or smiling. I guess you could use it as a cake topper (a wedding I attended recently had Mudler and Scully (below) figurines as a cake topper!), but even if it's not functional, it's still awesome!
