Parties: Niajah is a Big Girl Now

SO, uhhhm lean in…

It is totally okay to be super duper girlie and want a super duper girlie Sweet 16 AND have JunePlumm Events plan it for you. This is what Niajah wanted and THIS is what Niajah got. I LOVED that Niajah and her mom, Natasha, were not afraid to be frilly and girlie and pink and FUN! It’s even more awesome that I learned that New Jersey has an entire music scene that I was not ready for but I can dig! (someone slide me a mix tape please). Anyway, take a look at some of the highlights of this Super Sweet 16 wonderfully captured by Amy Anaiz Photography. Just wait till you see how STUNNING Niajah looked:

Your wedding day is fast approaching and isn’t it cute to celebrate going from Mr. & Ms to Mr. & Mrs. than to personalize little details showcasing that you have now crossed over into Mrs.’dom.

Here are a few ways that YOU you can strut your Mr. & Mrs. stuff (before and after the wedding):

Note cards

Pillows

Towel set
Ring Bowl

Shoe Decals

Forks (one of my faves)

What’s your pick?

Pretty Little Things: Romance by Candlelight

What do I love about these pictures?

The reflective vases!

Reflective Vases give your table setting a sleek modern look that is to die for. My favorite use of these magic vessels are to couple them with candles/candlelight. The reflection is multiplied and the “romance by candlelight factor” is quadrupled. It’s a quick easy way to turn up the fabulous on your tablescape. And who doesn’t want that.

Pretty Little Things: Bridal Envy 2013 – And the Oscar goes to…

Every Season there is one designer whose overall selection of Bridal Wear just blows me away. This year that designer is Oscar de la Renta. The innovation, the design, the use of fabric and fantastic veils, the wearability of it all…well most. The color, the gorgeousness and the versatility = SWOON! Just take a look at a few that caught my eye:

This Cape is…FIYAHHHH!

I’m digging the balloon skirt
Let there be SLEEVES! LOVE!

Love this option!

COLOR!

I would wear this veil with the dress the 
entire wedding. Just awesome!

Don’t you just want to eat them up!. Bravo Oscar…Bravo! 

Pretty Little Things: Sexy Little Bride

Most brides consider the bridal gown as the most important outfit you will put on. While that is true, what about the “other” important outfit you will put on. The honeymoon night is supposed to be the first of the most romantic nights you spend together as husband and wife. So why not make the most of it.

After the festivities and before you snooze, slip into something a bit more…

…comfortable, and enjoy the cherry on top of an amazing wedding night! *Wink*

Pretty Little Things: Heel Condoms

I find some of my best information and products while perusing FB and today is no different. Look at this cute item I found which would make an AWESOME gift for your bridesmaids. Heel Condoms! Yeah… I had the same reachtion when I saw it. Think of it as a bra with removable straps that you can make strapless, criss cross, one strap or several other ways. EXCEPT it’s for your shoe.  Take a look at this youtube video I found on facebook (necolebitchie) and see how it works:

The site Theheelcondoms.com, has many other types of shoe adornments to choose from. Here are some of my faves:

I love the concept that you can make your existing favorite shoe new again by slipping on of these heel condoms. I don’t know about you, but I totally see these in my future!

Pretty Little Things: Blooming Beauties

It’s spring time in New York, and aside from the weather being completely bipolar it is a great time for some pretty blooms. And because of this bipolar weather ( I’m not complaining) we are starting to see some of our favorite blooms peak earlier than usual. What I am mainly referring to are Cherry Blossoms. Typically we see the heights of these flowery beauties in mid April -May. BUT here we are in March and they are popping up all over the place and completely blanketing homeowners lawns.

Because of the color and fullness they are a favorite of mine for springtime weddings. Here’s why

I love that in a centerpiece it gives you a feel of having an outdoor wedding indoors. And let’s not stop there, cherry blossoms are great for your stationary, cakes as well as favors. So feel free to spread the spring time love throughout your wedding.
