Between the rustic and refurbished to the formal and fabulous, reception chandeliers, lanterns and the like were enough to make my head spin! For serious! When you consider the range light ceiling accessories have, it’s almost impossible NOT to be in awe! Well-lit, hanging fixtures can be adorned with everything from flowers and bubbles to crystals and twinkles… making them agreeable to sleek and modern settings, as well as eccentric and outdoor scenes!
Not only that but it’s the fact that all these overhead fixtures will all provide lighting… and everyone – from photographers and reception hall coordinators to designers and professional planners – will all agree that LIGHTING is key when it comes to creating ambiance and setting / keeping a mood.

Lighting is such a subtle – yet vitally important – design tool. Good use of lighting will bring to life the most mundane design schemes. Put together with a great interior and you’ve got the perfect partnership. Picking a fantastic light fitting is just one element of the job. Where you place it, how it operates and the effect it has on its surrounding area is twice as important.
And I couldn’t agree more! Think about it… Consider two evenings. Both are EXACTLY the same. You’re enjoying a nice meal with a nice man in a nice restaurant, but one is by candlelight and the other is under the harsh florescence of flickering bulbs. One (the prior) has a warm, romantic connotation; while the other almost takes on a the beginnings of a horrow movie classic. Not(&)Good.
Hence why lighting is sooooo important for setting the scene on your big day, and when you’re setting it, consider some of these overhead exposures, shimmering chandeliers and lovely lanterns for creating (& captivating!) just the right one! Check out below and let the lighting inspiration begin:

If – in fact – a wedding day is the happiest day of a young woman’s life, she’ll no doubt be smiling from ear to ear from start to finish. So, she’ll for sure want to be sporting nothing but a beautifully bright, beautifully white set of chompers whilst doing so!
While photographers have tools, such as Photoshop (thank the good Lord!) that can most certainly enhance even the least envious to most envious, they won’t have access to everyone’s film and surely not to your actual teeth (weird!) the day of!
So, what’s a bride to do when her whites aren’t at their brightest coming wedding time? Well, I’m so glad you asked!
Sure, there are the over-the-counter Crest (or otherwise) white strips available at pretty much every local and national drug store chain, and yes, while these work like a dream – just ask my bf, Bre, and her almost glowing, not-in-the-least-bit pearly, ultra white smile…
Bre (left, clearly!) and me in Vegas for a girl’s trip :)
…they can get pricey and aren’t always suitable for sensitive teeth. Take me, for instance, I have SUPER sensitive teeth and have never been able to use any of the dentally supported, store bought products. For cereal, both times I’ve tried, it ended up feeling like screaming in my mouth. Not pretty and not fun :(
However, I still – like every other woman on the planet – would like to smile bright in shining white, but because of my toothy rejection to whitening remedies, always fell a little short. Boo. In the past, I was forced to where red lipstick (yes! that TOTALLY helps!) or simply smile with less teeth showing. Double boo.
But I’m happy to report, this is no longer the case!
Below are two Teeth Whitening Remedies that I know from personal experience work FAMOUSLY for even the most sensitive teeth, and cost next to nothing! Feel free to pick your best fit, ladies, and be fully dressed with the brightest, whitest smile on your wedding day celebration!
Teeth Whitening Remedy #1

What you’ll need:
Toothpaste (of your choice!)
What you’ll do:
In a small cup, mix one teaspoon of baking soda with one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide and half a teaspoon of water. Put in a tiny bit of toothpaste for flavoring and mix until completely dissolved.
Then, brush your teeth for two (2) minutes using the mixture in its entirety.
Do once (1) a week until personal level of whiteness is reached. Then, limit to using treatment once a month or once every other month.
Teeth Whitening Remedy #2
This was given by Dr. Oz on one of his DIY, self-health shows.
What you’ll need:
Lemon Juice (from an actual lemon!)
What you’ll do:
Using 1/4 cup of baking soda, squeeze the juice from half a lemon and mix thoroughly. The solution will begin to bubble.
Dip a cotton ball or Q-Tip into the mixture and apply all over teeth and let it sit for around one (1) minute.
Brush your teeth to remove acid. Rinse. & Enjoy!
Hope these help save you money and give your brightest, whitest wedding smile ever :)
I think it’s safe to say that most brides choose their wedding colors based on two things.
Their personal preference, and
The season/weather surrounding the big day
Both simple and personal, this school of thought has held up through the years, and while trends may change, this is one area that has remained constant. No matter if a bride chooses navy, royal, baby or Tiffany’s, part of her mindset was / is / always will be focused on blue.
According to industry reports and online encyclopedias from places such as TheWeddingReport.com and Wikipedia.org, most colors tend to have dual meanings. I encourage all of you, especially all you brides-to-be, to only focus only on the good… because nothing, and I mean nothing good ever came from being negative :) So, feel free to find your hue below and see what it can do for you!
Red is the warmest, most energetic color in the spectrum, which is why it is the one most paid attention to. (See, I knew it was for divas!) It is associated with everything from love, passion and desire (great!) to violence, danger and fury (uhhh, not so great!). While some cultures uphold red as a symbol of courage and purity, others revere it as a sign of guilt or warning. (I’m sticking with the cultures who see it as brave and divine.)

Orange represents energy. Still part of the warm hues, orange has a number of luminescent qualities, which include warmth, enthusiasm and vibrancy. (Perfect for a wedding day celebration!) However, orange also has a tendency to come off as demanding and controlling. (Can you say, Bridezilla?)

Yellow both warm and friendly, signifies optimism, joy, imagination, hope and happiness. In some cultures, however, yellow is the symbol for dishonesty, betrayal and cowardice. (Note to all brides, stick with the inspirational version.)

Green often the most sited favorite color of women and men, symbolizes nature, health, renewal, generosity, fertility and vigor. On a darker note, it also corresponds with jealousy, inexperience and misfortune. (Feel free to ignore the yucky translation.)

Blue epitomizes peace, tranquility and harmony. In most cases (which are the ones you should focus on) blue symbolizes unity, trust, confidence, loyalty and security. However, (this is the part brides-to-be shouldn’t rely on) it can also be a representation of depression and loneliness.

Purple/Indigo has the most regal representation globally. Often associated with nobility and royalty, purple embodies wisdom, enlightenment and spirituality. (Ooh la la! A color fit for a queen!) But even though it’s considered an exotic color, purple can also be seen as arrogant, cruel and mournful. (Blah, blah, not listening.)

Black – despite popular belief – is the absence of all color and / or light. It is said to represent everything from power and wealth to sexuality and sophistication. On one hand, black creates a unique blend of elegance, formality and class; while on the other hand, it can represent mystery, fear and sadness. (I’m gonna go ahead and say when referencing “weddings,” we’ll stick to the first hand.)
The first time I ever saw custom lighting done was for my best friend, Bre’s fashion show at IU Bloomington. *Pause for a moment of fond recollection* Sigh, how I miss thee :)
Anyhoot, as it was for all design major students, Bre was responsible for creating a collection to present as a showcase for her final grade, and it was ahhhhmazing! The clothes killed it, but the set up was equally as INCREDS! Seeing “Bre” handwritten in what will surely become her famed signature in hot pink lighting? Fuhgetaboutit.
So, who knew after that day I would spend so many years never seeing it again? Until recently, that is. Nowadays, brides and grooms have started making a splash with custom lighting at their receptions! I mean, talk about a standout accessory! And even better? When using filters over lights, you get an extremely exciting look without taking a toll on your wedding day budget. Can you say, score? Big bang, little buck… it’s like the best of both wedding planning worlds :)
And don’t even get me started on the amount of possibilities that this bright lights, big city idea can create! Whether you choose to actually have lights made or simply use filters to create a personalized flare around the hall, I’m sure your guests will be nothing short of “ooh la la!” upon seeing it. Plus, the options are just as personal as the love the represent. Yet another win / win for the wedding world!
You can go big, bold and beautiful…

Or maybe you want something a little shorter and more subtle? In that case, nothing works better than your just established marital monogram…

**Monograms are especially fun because you can really experiment with different fonts and varying sizes until you find the perfect fit :) Not to mention, monograms can make for interesting design, as well as a pop of personalized charm in your reception setting.
And speaking of interesting design, couples don’t just have to end their custom lighting kick with their names and dates. I’ve even seen where the newlyweds have also opted to light up the walls with all kinds of other faux fixtures. From chandeliers and damask patterns to florals and fabulously fallen leaves, custom lighting can really be exciting to experiment with.

Really, you’re only limited by your imagination and local (or internet available) resources you can find. So, check in, check out and see just how amazing your names can look in lights :)
As with so many other trends, we can thank the likes of celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Ashlee Simpson, ones with Jessica in their name (Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker etc.) and pretty much every girl from The Hills / Laguna Beach / MTV era for taking this insanely gorgeous trend and setting it above all the rest.
Of course, when it comes to these famously celebrated celebutantes and trend setting, it started with thier most noticeable accessory – their hair!!! – and shading it from dark to light and vice versa. This gradual color change created a one a kind look that is equally fabulous as it is amazing, and one that didn’t go unnoticed for long!

I mean where was SJP and LC and all these other ombre-colored cuties during my painstakingly awkward high school years? I could’ve really used their celebrity approved status to make my dark roots and bleached tips look fashionably on trend, rather than hideously off base. Heck, I’ve been rockin’ the ombre look since the early 2000′s – back when it wasn’t even near being considered trendy but trashy, haha! OMG! Did I set this trend into play?? I did, didn’t I!!?? I knew it.
Okay, so while I’m not delusional enough to believe I set this trend into play (…), I do know it is something worth celebrating, regardless of who did or didn’t start it. *cough, cough*
And – OBVI! – one area that has really started to love on the ombre is a lady’s favorite day – her wedding day! That’s right, my lovelies, wedding days and all their accessible accessories have taken this grand nod to color change and make it a uniquely beautiful part of the I do.
Everything from the dress and shoes to the table centerpieces, flowers and more have all been illuminated in the this beautifully shaded ombre look, and after taking a gander myself online, I can’t say I blame them! Check out below and see what I mean:

Birds are by no means strangers to the wedding market. Between love bird themed ceremonies, peacock colored accessories, fantastically feathered centerpieces, birds have made a nest in Nuptial-ville with no future plans of leaving.
And I think I know why… Bird (B-I-R-D). Bride (B-R-I-D-E). I mean, heeelllooooo!?!? Invert the i and r… add on an e, and Boom! Ha, mystery solved. Case closed.
Okay, so while I won’t be quitting my day job any time soon to get my Sherlock sleuth on, I still stand by my original assessment that birds and brides were simply meant to be! And with Spring coming into the full swing of things (or at least it better be soon — enough with the snow already!), twitter themed weddings and accessories will make an even a bigger splash than before! Because birds are equipped with sweet shapes and fabulous feathers, these wing tipped egg layers have the ability to create a variety of designs, layouts, choices and ideas that are almost infinitesimal in numbers! Look at what they do for invites alone!

Personally, I like that this trend isn’t limited by personality or type. For instance, birds can be played up to look very modern and pop art inspired for a contemporary, fashion forward bride, but they can also be played down to give off a more vintage and rustic look for a traditional, Boho-chic bride… and how many other wedding trends can be as versatile? Not many :)
During a recent interview on this year’s hottest wedding trends, Emma, founder and president of emmalinebride.com – an online resource for all things crafty and creative – birds have been all the rage for weddings for years, but their popularity will only continue to grow through 2013… perhaps topping the wedding charts for biggest trend of the year!
Emma was enthusiastic when she started providing some samples stating, “Some examples include tossing bird seed, bird cages as card holders, bird themed invitations, and bird’s nest favors (complete with blue Jordan almond ‘eggs’).
She went on to say that we should, “look for bird necklaces, particularly ones with a minimalist look (like single feather pendants or tiny sparrows), both of which are popular and make great gifts for bridesmaids and flower girls.”
Not only that but feather-inspired hair accessories – be it traditional veils, modern fasteners or otherwise – will also see a large increase in popularity in the months to come! And while I la-Louvre all these bird-themed accessories, I have to admit, my favorite of them all?? Bird-Themed Cake Toppers!! Seriously? Are these not the CUTEST things you’ve ever seen!?!?

Eco-friendly weddings are all the rage these days and for all kinds of reasons! With more and more people jumping on the Team Mother Nature bandwagon, the popularity of eco-chic is booming. Now more than ever, people are realizing what we do today will directly correlate with what happens tomorrow… and they’re gladly making greener strides to a brighter future. Gooo, us!
With support growing exponentially – especially through media and celebrity gusto-, “going green” is currently at its most stylish. And what better way to this exemplify this beautiful cause than on the most beautiful day of your life… your wedding! Below are 7 tips to make sure your wedding will be green with envy:
courtesy of wedding-pictures.org
One) Pick Eco-Chic Wedding & Engagement Rings. From the very first, down-on-one-knee moment to the big day of “I do’s,” you will have countless opportunities to go green! For instance, even your bands can be eco-chic by choosing materials that are Mother Earth approved. Consider using recycled gold, vintage jewelry or buying from green-loving jewelers. Over fifty jewelry retailers have signed the Golden Rules agreement, promising to sell only gold from mines that are actively supporting human rights, labor, and environmental concerns. In addition, it is also possible to buy conflict-free diamonds, purchased from areas not waging war over gems. Buying “clean” gold and conflict-free diamonds ensures that you’re only supporting environmentally sustainable practices.
Two) Choose Earthy Friendly Invites. While many Web sites and blogs may tell you that E-vites are the way to go, I’d have to disagree. There’s a certain level of formality weddings should uphold, and while emailing may be the most eco-friendly solution, it’s definitely not the ONLY eco-friendly solution. For the paper lover, consider using only one envelope instead two. By cutting back on the inner envelopes and just sticking to one outer, you’ll save an abundance of trees. Because the process of paper production is incredibly costly to the environment, you should also consider using paper crafted of 100% recycled materials or even ones made from other natural materials altogether. Companies like Crane & Co. and Smock offer a great line of invites crafted of cotton and bamboo, making them a great way to go green for your wedding!

Three) Go Green with Ceremony & Reception Sites. When choosing a “green” venue, it’s important for couples to take a few things into consideration before signing on the dotted line. First, if you’re serious about having a wedding that is both eco-friendly and fabulous, you should be aware that typical venues like grand ballrooms, swanky resorts and whoo-whoo country clubs are often times guilty of using vast amounts of electricity. Think about getting married outside, on a farm or in a botanical garden where au naturale sunshine can provide the light and heating and cooling systems are null and void. If a traditional venue is a must, look for one that uses recycled, energy-efficient appliances and biodegradable products, as well as energy saving bulbs and lighting.
Extra Tip for the Extra Green: Gas emissions from cars are one of the main factors causing ozone depletion. Consider having your ceremony and reception in one place to cut back on the fuel pollution caused by your guests having to drive from one place to another.

Four) Shake it Up with Organic Menus & Catering. Because food is such a large part of so many kinds of celebrations, many couples find it harder to go green for their wedding menu… but don’t panic about having an expensive, organically grown vegan menu only. There are several ways to help the earth while still keeping up the taste! Try cutting back on things here and there to make a big difference in the end. Choose in-season produce, fruits and vegetables that are grown locally. This will cut down on the shipping and packaging costs, as well as the excess pollution and trash it causes.

Five) Think Outside the Flower Box. Word of warning: don’t let the bloom fool you. Just because Mother Earth can grow it, doesn’t mean that all flowers are eco-friendly. In fact, many flowers sold commercially are sprayed with harmful pesticides and fertilizers that pollute groundwater, kill organic material in the soil and have even made the workers fielding them sick. Yuck! Instead, consider leaving blooms out altogether. In the spring and summer, switch floral bouquets with ones filled with vintage brooches and colorful ribbons. In the fall, consider a robust display of locally grown gords and vegetables, and in the winter, try using fluffy faux muffs! There are also several substitutes for eco-friendly table centerpieces. Try decorating your tables with things that can be used again, like candles or vases filled with river rocks and colored water.
If flowers are a must, consider using locally-grown, in-season flowers. Just like your food menu items, this cuts down on the cost and pollution caused by shipping. Also, try potted plants for centerpieces that can be replanted later.
Six) Bring In Biodegradable Favors & Gifts. It’s time for everyone to start being honest with one another… favors – no matter how ahhh to the mazing brides and grooms think they are – are often times forgotten. They’re either left behind or thrown away, and because so many are made with non-biodegradable products, they are causing waaaay more harm than good. I would encourage you all to do what the Mister and I did, and in lieu of favors, donate to your favorite charities in honor of your guests. This not only gives money to a great foundation, but it also be rids the excess packaging it takes to wrap the favors and any leftover “trash” it may cause!
Seven) Reduce, Recycle & Reuse Your Wedding Dress. I know. I know. This is sometimes the hardest ones for brides-to-be to swallow because soooo many of us want our very own wedding dress. However, I would suggest because so much excess fabric, electricity and travel are needed to make and ship a dress to every soon-to-be-Mrs., that she first start inside her Momma’s closet. Vintage inspired gowns are the chicest chic there is, and you can always have them altered to fit your personality and style. It’s your something borrowed and something new all in one :)
Extra Tip for the Extra Green: Also consider donating your gown after you’re done with it. Since most brides only ever wear their dress once, this provides a venue for others to get just as much joy out of it as you!
You know you’re official when you take over Pinterest and turn your name into a verb, and that’s exactly what Mumford & Sons and “mumfording / mumsessed” has done. Haha! First of all, it’s always been a dream of mine to become so famous for something someday – preferably something totally awesome, but alas, I digress :) – that my name could become a verb; so, the fact that one of my fave folk bands is almost equally as awesome!
For those of you not familiar (gasp!), Mumford & Sons is an English folk rock band who emerged out of West London in 2007. Known for the folksy sound, quotable lyrics and old fashioned style – the latter being the main reason for their trending on wedding style – Mumford & Sons merges the sounds of bluegrass and folk that is both soothing and original.
And unless you’ve been living under a rock or in a place with no electricity or battery operated radios, I’m sure you’re familiar with their HA-HUGE single, I Will Wait from their album , Babel. In case you find yourself being one of the aforementioned people, here it is :)
Legit though — even my mom knows I Will Wait! God love Denise – favorite lady evs – but she’s not necessarily known for staying in the know, if you know what I mean… that was a whole lot of “know” for a sentence that didn’t know much of anything, ha!
Anyhoot, listening to their music, filled with banjos, mandolins, upright basses and the like, you can almost see the style through music. I like to envision it as if the 1920s inspired Chicago and The Great Gatsby went country :)
Brides and grooms are filling their big day celebrations with bowling caps, backless dresses, intricate headpieces, suspenders, mustaches, vintage cars… oh my! Check out below and see what I mean :)

Alright, ladies and gents, let’s point the pinkies outward and get classy for a moment, shall we?
<sips champagne from her Waterford crystal… and go>
While weddings have always been and will continue to be an affair for every bride and groom to plan as they see fit, there has been a definite resurgence of refinery as of recent years… and the pip pip cheerio of it all has me pleasantly surprised :) Sure, this kind of a sophisticated splendor never really went away, but one way that it’s really made an impact of late is in plated dinners at reception hall feasts.

Talk about decadently delightful :)
During an interview with Bridal Guide, Elizabeth Creasey of an LA based catering company, WHOA, Nelly! stated one of their current, biggest requests from Hollywood A-Listers in reference to these plated feasts is for gold silverware, suggesting a “more sophisticated” affair. Check out below for some examples of this golden boy appeal :)

And if adding entree choices to your buffet free meal is an option, might I suggest you consider adding a dish that showcases either yours, his or both your cultural culinary? This is an extremely popular take for brides and grooms cross all cultures, and it adds an additional touch of sentimentality to an already beautiful occasion.
But if you’re wondering what to offer that will have mouths watering for more, why not try 2013′s go to dish wish: pork! ‘Tis true, kiddos. Apparently pork has become the go-to meat for today’s modern wedding settings. While it is one of the oldest and most commonly consumed meats all over the world, it also has the ability to be transformed into sooo many delicious dishes… so, forks up, porks up! Ha, I couldn’t resist :)
But no matter what you decide – buffet styled, plated meals, pitch in or otherwise – just be sure you make it your own :)
I have a confession, ladies and gents. That’s right. Here amongst friends, I need to admit something I’m not 100% proud of, and because everyone knows a public blog forum is the most discreet place to make an admission, I’m sure that’s where this will remain, right? Ooookkkkaaaay, here goes. I love peonies! Okay, well, that’s not the confession, but it’s important for establishing the premise of what will be noted as such :) But see, so pretty…

Alas, I digress. It was in my youth that my original obsession with the peony started. As I would ride my bike around the neighborhood, I was always drawn to the overgrown, bushy plant that began to bloom every spring in Mrs. Brown’s front yard. Because of the size of the plant, it would often grow outward and onto the sidewalk. It was in the moments of early summer, that my confession comes into play.
The plant – as you may have well guessed – was that of the beautiful blooming peony. Now, because the plant would sometimes end up a little on the sidewalk, I couldn’t help but run into it every now and again. So, if my bike “accidentally” (on purpose) veered toward the bush and knocked off a peony head or two, it would’ve been wrong of me NOT to take them home and enjoy them the way pretty flowers like the peony deserve to enjoyed, right? Yes? No? Maybe? Is this thing on?
*Hangs head in shame* I knew it! To you all, and most especially to you, Mrs. Brown, I am eternally sorry for my youthful thievery, but please know it was done out of love and they were appreciated to the fullest extent! <insert giant, sweet smile>
And now that I have that off my chest and more than likely worried some of you reading this – especially if Mrs. Brown ever comes across this blog, haha! – I’d like to move onto the real meat ‘n’ potatoes of the post, which is – of course! – the peony itself!

According to the Bridal Guide and brides the world over, the peony is the go-to flower for bouquets looking to create the most gusto! And it’s no wonder why! Comprised with deeply lobed leaves with large, bulbous and often fragrant flower blooms, the peony is available in just about every color under the sun! It’s petals – decorated in everything from reds and yellows to shades of whites and pinks – this beautimous blossom can be incorporated into every wedding color and theme there is :)
Great as a stand alone flower, paired in a bouquet of nothing but its own blooms OR accompanied by others equally as exquisite, the pretty peony is surely one standout flower that will have heads turning and breaths catching. Check out below and see what I mean for yourself :)
