Colorful shoes… umm…yes, please!

Ladies, like everything else, tradition no longer holds strong for typical weddings…..

Hence, the beautiful (colorful) heel!

Color is a great way to express what kind of bride you are.  In today’s weddings, adding color in places other than the reception/bridesmaid dresses is no longer  a faux-pas. It is the perfect way to show who you are in everyday life, as well as, show a little personality in a sea of  wedding season;)

If you like, use the colors from your bridesmaid dresses/wedding colors..or if you are feeling a little frisky, shake it up and use a color complementary to your colors –> Wedding colors: blue and white–> wear yellow shoes!

And the awesome thing is, you can actually wear them again! And think how snappy you will be after you slip on your old wedding shoes:) 

Of course, if you are the more traditional bride, white shoes are perfectly perfect as well (and Mom won’t have a heart attack when you pull out Hot pink Leopard shoes with your wedding dress).

Talk Nautical to me..

This awesome fashion trend is becoming an even awesome-r wedding theme.. 

I’m even thinking about doing it myself 😉  I cute would sailor-pinup bridesmaid be???

Do your guests really want a mouse pad with YOUR initials on it?

How many weddings have you been to and received a really lame wedding favor?

Instead of the traditional take home favors, try something unique and new…

  • Print a charitable donation favor card for each place setting. Make cards explain that in lieu of favors, you and your benevolent hubby have donated to a local/international charity.

  • Send home a small pine tree seedling wrapped in a burlap sack (tagged with instructions). Your guests will never forget You and the Mr!
  • Candy buffets are so popular right now…. Instead, double the favor as the place card. Create a label with each name and craft-ily wrap the personalized bag of candy!

  • Orrr if you are in to yummy treats besides candy goodness.. look into these delicious Gourmet Brownie Favors and get the ribbons in your wedding color
  • If you and the hubby-to-be are the more “organic” couple, try these take home favors for your guests to relax after the reception

  • Lastly, if you and your wedding party are more the “party bunch”, make a “Hangover Kit”…. especially for those who will still be partying after your departure
