    Don't get us wrong—we love, love, love the classic look of a floor-length wedding gown. But after rings have been exchanged and vows have been said, what bride doesn't want a dress that's a little easier to move in? We're big time advocates of a second (and shorter!) reception dress here at Project Wedding, and this sweet little Kirribilla number from Weddington Way is one of our faves right now. Add a few bits of (elegant) bling and finish off with a shiny cobalt shoe for a city chic ballroom celebration.

  • Statement skirts are one of our favorite ways to turn heads down the aisle. And while we're all for intricate layers of ruche and tulle, there is definitely something to be said for bigger, bolder, and simpler. One of the most creative twists on the big ball gown we saw on Spring 2014 runways was the wide panel tier. Skirt layers got larger and longer, and we think the look is just perffect for the bride who wants to look a little more playful on her big day. What's your take on the style?

  • Now that you're engaged, it's important you learn how to take care of your ring. Here's how. (expert advice)     photo by Todd Rafakovitch   When it comes to engagement ring care, you'd be surprised how many women overlook the importance of ring upkeep. Just imagine – you are faithfully brandishing your ring on a daily basis with all of the everyday wear and tear that comes with your regular activities.

    Whether you're scrubbing caked on grease from last night's dinner or planting seeds in your garden, chances are your engagement ring has been right along for the ride. In order to rid your precious ring of unwanted dust, dirt, and yes…dead skin particles that have come in contact with your ring, commit to memory the following engagement ring care tips:

    Cleaning: For diamond engagement ring care, simply soak in warm water for at least 30 minutes using a liquid detergent. Another method for engagement ring care regarding diamond settings involves soaking your ring in a solution consisting of 50 parts ammonia and 50 parts cool water. Once out of the solution, use a soft brush to tap the front and back of the ring, in hopes of loosening any dirt. Rinse again in the solution, and then pat dry.

    Wedding Ring Prongs: Engagement ring care also means that you should treat ring prongs to a bit of tender loving care. Over time, they can become weakened, bent or loose. Check your stone by holding it up to your ear and slightly tapping it. A loose stone will produce a slight rattling sound. To prevent loss of your stone, have a trusted jeweler inspect your engagement ring, provide a professional cleaning, and look over your prongs.

    Storage: When not wearing your diamond engagement ring, carefully store in a separate jewelry case or individually lined compartment, which keeps diamonds from rubbing against other pieces of jewelry. This can produce a scratch.

    Protection: If you engage in hard labor on a routine basis, follow the important engagement ring care tip of simply taking off your ring when doing activities, such as operating heavy machinery or construction work. This will help avoid breaks, splits, cracks, and looseness. Keep in mind that even digging in the ground while gardening can cause damage to an engagement ring – there's a lot of rocks hidden in the dirt!

  • As your wedding day approaches, there are a few things you should do to ensure that your appearance will be flawless on the big day. (expert advice)

    Photo By: Pen Carlson Photography

    In order to make sure that you look your absolute best on your wedding day, you have probably booked appointments with your hair stylist, manicurist and pedicurist, make-up artist and even a tanning specialist.  As your wedding day approaches, there are a few things you should do to ensure that your appearance will be flawless on the big day.  Below, you will find some beauty check in tips to guide you toward the perfect wedding day appearance.

    Beauty Check In: Hair and Make-Up

    The last thing you want for your wedding is a bad hair day and make-up which makes you look like a clown.  If you haven't scheduled a ‘practice run,' it's important to do this at least a few weeks before the big day.  Check your hair by moving around and shaking your head to ensure that it will stay in place.  Your make-up should look natural and enhance the beauty you already possess; not like you're being painted up for some kind of strange ritual!  Make sure you feel comfortable with your selections and that the hair looks great with the dress.  This beauty check in will make you feel more confident and excited about the big day.

    Beauty Check In: Manicure and Pedicure

    If you've never received a manicure or pedicure before, you may want to have it done a few weeks before the wedding.  It's essential to be sure that you're happy with the look and that you're comfortable with the results.  If you will be wearing tips or other types of fake nails, make sure they're at a length you feel comfortable with.  If you have it done a few weeks ahead of time, you will only need to schedule a ‘filler' appointment to make sure everything is in place.  You will also have the chance to get accustomed to fake nails if you've never had them before.

    Beauty Check In: Spray Tan

    If you will be receiving a spray tan for your wedding, it's imperative that you make sure the specialist is using the right color.  Have a practice run about a month before the wedding and if you're happy with the results, have your specialist take notes of color combinations and any other important points.  You will definitely want to be checked for a sensitivity or allergy - imagine walking down the aisle with hives! 

    By doing a beauty check in at least a few weeks before the wedding, you can tie up loose ends and ensure that everything is set for your ceremony.

  • Planning healthy snacks for your big day is just as important as your wedding cake, so don't overlook it! (expert advice)     From the time you wake up until you finally settle into your honeymoon suite, your wedding day is going to be full of nonstop action. Where will you find the energy to play the role of the beautiful bride without any time to eat?   Planning healthy snacks for your big day is just as important as your wedding cake – especially since that bite of cake may be the only thing you put in your stomach!  Start out your day with a light, but filling breakfast and ask your maid of honor to help you prepare a snack bag to bring along to the wedding.   Snacks to Avoid   You don’t want to stain your dress or destroy your makeup and you definitely don’t want an upset stomach to ruin your special day – those nervous butterflies are bad enough. Stay away from carbonated drinks, heavy or greasy foods, and anything that may drip, drop, or ooze into a potential wedding disaster. You’ll also want to avoid lots of sugars and carbohydrates or you may experience a crash rather than an energy boost.   Snacks to Pack   Choose healthy wedding day snacks that are easy to eat on the go. High protein foods will provide you with the energy you need to make it through the big day. I would suggest carrying along an insulated lunch bag to keep things fresh and remember to pack a few extra snacks to share with your groom – his day will be nearly as hectic as yours!   Peanut butter crackers Beef jerky Trail mix Yogurt String cheese Peanuts Dried fruit   Bring along a few plain saltine crackers to nibble on too, just in case you experience any last minute waves of nausea.   Wedding Day Snack Station   Instead of carrying around snacks for yourself, you may want to organize a snack station for the entire wedding party to enjoy. It will be a busy day for everyone and nothing could be worse than a hungry, inattentive flower girl or the sounds of a groomsman’s growling stomach! Set up a table with vegetables and dip, turkey wraps, or crackers and cheese to keep those hunger issues at bay.   High protein, healthy snacks are a must for your big day. Whether you arrange a platter for the entire wedding party or just toss a few things into your tote bag, be sure you take a few minutes to munch throughout the day. Healthy snacks will give you the energy you need to create a picture perfect wedding.

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch   Sometimes the best flowers for boutonnieres have the shortest stems. Which is why this delphinium and freesia bout is so cute. Using floral wire to keep stems sturdy and elongate them, you can make these beautiful boutonnieres for your wedding party in minutes.     Of course, they're also a small fraction of the price of what a boutonniere from your florist will cost, saving you money on your big day. Here's how to make your own!     Supplies: Floral Wire Floral Tape Washi Tape Scissors Purple Stock Freesia Delphinium Pittosporum How-To:     1. First, cut the stem of a freesia flower and the delphinium. Add a piece of cut floral wire to each flower to act as the new, longer and more sturdy stem. You can do this by poking the wire through the bottom of the stem and up through the top of the flower. Form a hook shape, and pull the wire back down to secure it. Each wire should be 4 to 6 inches long.     2. Next, trim the bottom leaves from Pittosporum and bottom blooms from the purple stock, to prepare them for the boutonniere.     3. Arrange all the flowers and add the Pittosporum behind them, to act as the base, before wrapping all of the stems with floral tape.     4. Cut the bottom 1-2 inches from the stems, to give the boutonniere a clean, short look.     5. Wrap the stems in decorative washi tape, in your wedding colors, or a minimal grey, to cover over the floral tape.     There you have it! Keep in water until it's time to pin them onto the groom and groomsmen.

    Pretty tissue tassels aren't just for garland or balloons anymore. Why not add them to simple honeycomb balls and hang in groups for maximum impact. These tassels are cheaper versions and you can make a bunch in no time at all.     Materials: Honeycomb balls (I get mine at www.devra-party.com) Tissue paper Twine or fishing line Scissors Tape

    1. Unfold your sheets of tissue paper and cut into quarters, once in half lengthwise and once in half widthwise. Fold each quarter in half lengthwise again and cut.     2. Starting at the bottom, cut 3/4" fringe all the way up the sheet, leaving 1 inch before the other end.     3. Take a few sheets and trim the fringe shorter by about 3". Take a few more sheets and trim shorter by about 6". This isn't exact, experiment with lengths you like.     4. Layer 3 long sheets, 2 to 3 mid-length sheets and 2 short sheets, on top of each other longest to shortest. Offset the top of the sheets to offset the fringe lines. Staple all the sheets together on top to hold.     5. Roll the sheets together and tape the top tight.     6. Tape the top to the center of the honeycomb ball, making sure the tape reaches both sides of the ball, as shown.     7. Open your ball and hang.     Add different sizes of honeycomb balls. To attach a smaller honeycomb ball to a larger one, like these, simply add the smaller one's twine hang tag to the inside center of the larger ball with tape.      Make a few or a bunch, these are sure to liven up any reception or dessert table. I love to hang decorations everywhere. This plain marble table was just begging to have a pop of color below.     Use empty areas around your venue and fill them with cheerful decorations. A little bit unexpected, a whole lot of merriment.

    These sweet and wild green wreaths are perfect for anytime of year (just change out the ribbon to suit the season). They look gorgeous on church doors, bride and groom chairs, or as pew markers. Total cost: $5 per wreath.     Materials: Spool wire Floral tape Clippers Greens (about 15 stems per wreath, we used rosemary, bay and boxwood) Ribbon      1. Form a circle (whatever size you need. Remember your wreath will be slightly bigger than the form) with the spool wire and double it over several times.   2. Cover the circle in floral tape.     3. Cut small pieces of greens and, take excess leaves off about an inch of the bottom stem.     4. Secure each piece with wire.     5. Make sure you overlap the stems to cover any wires or mechanics. You may need to fill in with a few extra pieces.     6. You can make these up to a week ahead of time. Spray daily with water and keep in a cool, dark place.   7. Hang with ribbon and afterwards send them home with special guests.       Add this natural touch to your big day - and have fun!     Photos By: Chelsea Fuss

Total cost: $5 per wreath.     Materials: Spool wire Floral tape Clippers Greens (about 15 stems per wreath, we used rosemary, bay and boxwood) Ribbon      1. Form a circle (whatever size you need. Remember your wreath will be slightly bigger than the form) with the spool wire and double it over several times.   2. Cover the circle in floral tape.     3. Cut small pieces of greens and, take excess leaves off about an inch of the bottom stem.     4. Secure each piece with wire.     5. Make sure you overlap the stems to cover any wires or mechanics. You may need to fill in with a few extra pieces.     6. You can make these up to a week ahead of time. Spray daily with water and keep in a cool, dark place.   7. Hang with ribbon and afterwards send them home with special guests.       Add this natural touch to your big day - and have fun!     Photos By: Chelsea Fuss
