Something Blue: Signature Drinks

16 Mar

If you would rather incorporate your Something Blue into your reception instead of your attire, blue signature drinks are an awesome way to do this. Not only are they super fun and pretty, but they will add that little extra something special to your reception! There are different variations of blue drinks that already exist. Most bartenders know how to make these but if you want something all your own, talk to your bartender or venue about creating a drink that reflects your taste. If you are scared to try new things, adding blueberries to champagne is a simple way to make a blue drink.

Bridal Gown Trend: Blush Wedding Dresses

28 Feb

Wearing a dress that was not white or ivory was, until recent years, considered a strange move.  Over the past couple of years we began to see bits of colors popping up, but a whole dress in a color other than white or ivory was still very unconventional. This all changed this year, dresses in blush and pink began to appear in quite a few bridal fashion shows. You might say that this change might have something to do with the blush Monique Lhuillier dress Reese Witherspoon wore at her March 2011 wedding. Whatever brought about this change in bridal fashion we hope its here to stay!
