Something Blue
Posted by Jeannie. Filed under Bridesmaids

You appreciate your best friends being there for you as you embark on your journey towards wedded bliss — wouldn’t it be great to treat them to a special bridesmaids gift from the designer who has a special place in every gal’s heart, Marc Jacobs? I had to share this quilted baby blue evening bag from his latest line, Marc by Marc Jacobs. It’s adorable, perfect for Spring and the best part? The cost! At $35, this expense won’t push you over the wedding day budget!

Cake Inspiration: Sweet Lady Jane
Posted by Margaret. Filed under Wedding Cakes

Los Angeles hasn’t been the same since Sweet Lady Jane opened its doors in 1988. We now only demand the very best when it comes to indulging in something sweet. Jane Lockhart is the sweet lady we have to thank for raising our confectionary standards and introducing to some of the most beautiful cakes out there.

Check out this wedding cake inspiration:

Not a cake person? Not a problem. We doubt your guests will complain when you serve up SLJ’s Hazelnut Mousse Cups, Lemon Bars or Mini Cheesecakes.
