When inviting children to a wedding, it is always nice to have something fun for them to do. I love this coloring book template from Martha Stewart. It is easy to print and put together and is nice for children of various ages. Set a copy along with some crayons at each child’s place setting and let them enjoy!
I had the great pleasure of working with Jessica and Clayton on their fall wedding at the Carnegie Institution. I loved the creativity and beautiful detail ideas that Jessica and her mother had for the wedding and the way we were able to bring them all to life on the day of the event. Jessica and Clayton are a beautiful couple and I wish them much happiness as they begin their new life together!

It is always nice to have a guest book at your wedding for guests to leave little notes congratulating you on your special day! But the classic, plain guest book can get a little boring. Here is a great idea from Martha Stewart for an alternative guest book.
Instead of having guests write on a book, buy several white dishes for guests to sign with metallic paint pens. After the event, arrange the plates on a wall in your home in random groupings. You will be reminded of your special day every time you see it and house guests will love the whimsical feel of the decorations!
I think it is always important for brides and grooms to find ways to personalize their wedding. Even if it is a small item like a favor. For couples who love to golf, for example, these personalized golf tees would be perfect as wedding favors for guests.
I had the great privilege of working with Prisca and Eric as they planned their September 2012 Mayflower wedding. As you can see, they are a stunning couple. What the photos don’t show, however, is how absolutely kind and special they are. It was a joy working with them and I wish them much happiness!
Congratulations, Prisca & Eric!
Choosing an outfit for a wedding, whether you are the bride, a bridesmaid or just a guest, can be stressful! It can be particularly stressful in the winter time because a “traditional” wedding shoe may not be appropriate for the cold weather. Refinery 29 has compiled a number of wedding shoes that are perfect for the winter. Below are a couple of my favorites but check the rest of the options here.
These gorgeous nude ASOS pumps are great for the bride (or bridesmaid) on a budget. The gold toe cap with jewels adds a total luxe feel without breaking the bank!
These unique Alice and Olivia wedges with their shiny, silver leather is a perfect accompaniment to a wedding dress. And not to mention the wedge heel will allow you to dance the night away pain free!
