I am a huge fan of independent wedding dress designers. You know, the stand alone guys that are apart from the wedding dress design power houses. Dont get me wrong, there is most defiantly a great need for the wedding dress power houses , but its the independent designers that can really bring the heat! Not being restricted by various restrictions that come along with mass producing wedding gowns, price points, & and anything else one can imagine, the independents bring pure creativity to light. Another advantage to wearing a dress from a smaller wedding dress designer is its quite possible you may choose a one of a kind, or at least a style that there wont be many other brides that will be wearing your same dress.
Today I stumbled upon something that really struck me as adorable and a fantastic use for old light bulbs! Gotta love great recycling/upcycling ideas! Free People has a great step by step tutorial on making lovely little hanging light bulb vases. I think these would be fantastic for both outdoor as well as indoors! Could you imagine an ambitious bride making hundreds of these beauties to hang over her dance floor! Such a fabulous idea!
Going through endless amounts of wedding imagery overload, I have come to realize there is one technique in wedding cake decoration that I simply can not get enough of!! LACE! Be it fondant that has been imprinted with lace, to hand cut lace fondant, or simply hand drawn lace, I am in love. There is something about this technique that quietly screams elegance & class.
Ever want to make your own pinata? Yeah me too! I personally like the idea of giving wedding guest something to do during cocktail hour. Whether its lawn games, listening & enjoying strolling musicians, maybe even something as exciting as having at a Pinata filled with fabulous wedding treats! Depending on your wedding or event, this might be just that touch that brings in an element of whimsy & fun. Everyone needs a good belly laugh right? So why not take to whacking something with a stick! Just think how fun the photos will be later!
