Fabulous garters.

If you don't want your garter to look like a cliche 80s prom accessory, glad you came here.
Bridal, chic, sexy. I am thinking about order one, so thought I'd share! Enjoy!
Check out Bleu Garters.

The Royal Wedding is FRIDAY!

The world class sweetheart and commoner, Catherine Middleton, will live out every girl's fantasy of marrying a prince Friday, April 29 at the Westminster Abbey. I can't confirm that Miss Middleton will be taking William's name, but I can only assume so. William's last name? Mountbatten-Windsor.

As anticipation has built up for the big day, global fans have been grappling for every detail they could get. Miss Middleton's allure is in her mystery and her likeability reminds us of Diana. In 1997, we watched as William and his brother, Harry, trailed behind their mother's casket toward the Abbey. Now, in 2011, we will watch William walk toward the Abbey in processional once again, only this time, celebrating a new life with his love. Sources say William has been very intentional about including his late mother in the big day. His fiance wears Diana's sapphire ring and Elton John is among the attendees (John sang "Candle in the Wind" at Diana's funeral). We'll likely see more tributes to Princess Diana tomorrow.

Personalization, royal class and celebration have made this wedding more than a moderate affair. In wedding dollars, perhaps it is modest, but to the rest of us, extravagent. You thought your wedding was expensive? The Royal Wedding could cost $40 million, according to the Today Show.
Though expensive, the wedding will stay down to earth through endearing touches. The sweet couple has made a brilliant effort to weave royal tradition and heritage with modernity and personalized touches. For example, Kate has dropped the "to obey" segment of the traditional wedding vows. A special family recipe will be used to create William's favorite chocolate biscuit cake, to be created by McVitie's Cake Company. More on the cake.
The music selected will carry a "largely British theme." The offical website reads, "The Couple have put considerable thought into selecting the music, and their choices blend traditional music with some newly commissioned pieces." For details on the music selection, click here.
Coveted invitations range from royalty and superstars to close friends. The Beckhams and Mr. Bean received an invite, but the last two prime ministers did not, what some are calling a "political snub."

Another blog to check out :)

Another blog...
Have you ever gone through a phase where you make a bunch of blogs because you can't decide what to blog about? Well, I've done that quite a bit. Anyways, this lovely wedding blog is really the only one I pay much attention to and that I truly love. But, as usual, I did start one up about Corey and my relationship. Mostly, it's just us writing about our random adventures. If interested, here's the link!

Today was a fairytale.

Green, watermelon, pale pink. Gardens, ribbons, vines, Romeo & Juliet, royal jewels, elegant lace and dainty details.

Royal Blue, Vibrant Orange, Yellow, Hot Pink

If you ever need inspiration, I recommend Sometimes I take some of the gorgeous weddings I love and try and think of ways that could be done as cost-efficiently as possible. For me, if I were trying to imitate the photo above, I'd get the vases I wanted but maybe smaller and with smaller bouquets or without flowers- maybe long, elegant twigs for a different feel.
Anyways, I simply love the bright, warm and vibrant shades of the flowers juxtaposed with the rich royal blue. It reminds me of the Mediterranean, even though I've never been. If you like the boldness but you'd like to tone it down, try this same royal blue with a marigold yellow (match the glasses with the yellow of the flowers in the center.) If you can't afford to buy all those blue glasses and your venue does not have them, consider buying pretty satin ribbon to tie in bows on the stem of each glass to add that same pop of color. If your wedding is outdoors, the clementines are neat, but if it's indoors they might be a little out of place. Instead, say for a ballroom, you could use glass beads that you'd buy at a craft store, sea glass, or decorative balls in a little vase.
The above photo from Thought I'd share some more pretty inspiration for you! If I find more helpful websites, I'll letcha know ;).
As you plan your wedding, if all else fails...
