  • Wedding cake toppers:

    Once upon a time, wedding cake toppers meant generic, assembly-line plastic figures of a formally clad bride and groom - whoever you were, whatever you wore to your wedding, your wedding cake toppers were pretty much the same as everyone else's. Nowadays, though, there's a seemingly infinite variety of wedding cake toppers - couples can even order customized wedding cake toppers designed to look just like them!


     


    Wedding cake topppers: limitless options! 

    Bride and groom wedding cake toppers are available in a number of materials - ceramic or porcelain, clay, glass, acrylic, marzipan and sugar are among the most common - and of course there's still the plastic variety. Those could actually be fun for a retro-themed wedding and can now be found with couples of different ethnic heritages, inter-racial couples and even same-sex couples. If the parents of either the bride or groom still have theirs, these old-fashioned wedding cake toppers would have special personal meaning to the new couple and could represent a new family tradition.


    Instead of bride and groom figures, some couples choose wedding cake toppers with their initials or new monogram or even a photograph. Wedding bells and hearts are also popular wedding cake toppers. Couples having a theme wedding might select wedding cake toppers that reflect the theme or the reception's color scheme, such as fresh flowers that match the bride's bouquet. Red roses and hearts are often used as wedding cake toppers at Valentine's Day weddings.


    Hand blown glass wedding cake toppers are lovely and elegant and are available in many different shapes and designs. Couples can use their imaginations and create seasonal or fairy tale motifs on top of the cake - if there's enough room! Other choices for unique wedding cake toppers include silk flowers, spun sugar designs, a small music box, a family heirloom or a fun reminder of the couple's favorite cartoon characters, hobbies or interests.


    Shopping online is a terrific way to get a sense of all the different wedding cake toppers out there, for couples who already have an idea of what they want or as inspiration for new ideas. Some couples select wedding cake toppers that are symbolic of their cultural heritage, such as a meaningful Chinese character or a Star of David. And in some cases, especially when the cake itself has a particularly elaborate design, there might not be any wedding cake topper at all.


    Wedding cake toppers can be stylish or playful, and there are also many funny wedding cake toppers - for example, the bride and/or groom talking on a cell phone, the groom sitting on a couch drinking a can of beer, the bride having her nails done. Before getting a set of whimsical cake toppers, bear in mind that even though it seems amusing at the moment, the wedding cake toppers are going to be immortalized in photos (lots of photos!) and videos of the event, along with the memories of all the guests. So couples should make sure that their wedding cake toppers present an image that they'll want remembered for years to come.

  • So High Artist: John Legend Album: Not Provided Description Not Provided Lyrics
    Baby since the day you came into my life
    You made me realize that we were born to fly
    You showed me everyday new possibilities
    You proved my fantasies of love could really be

    Let's go to a place only lovers go
    To a spot that we've never known
    To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah
    Ooh this feels so crazy
    Oh this love is blazing
    Baby we're so high
    Walking on cloud 9

    (You've got me up so high) So high
    (My shoes are scraping the sky) So high
    (You've got me up so high) Oh
    (My shoes are scraping the sky)

    Maybe later we can go up to the moon
    Or sail among the stars before the night is through
    And when morning comes we'll see the sun is not so far
    And we can't get much closer to God than where we are

    We'll go to a place only lovers go
    To a spot that we've never known
    To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah
    Ooh this feels so crazy
    Oh this love is blazing
    Baby we're so high
    Walking on cloud 9

    (You've got me up so high) So high
    (My shoes are scraping the sky) So high
    (You've got me up so high) Oh
    (My shoes are scraping the sky)

    Ooh...yeah
    Ooh...oh hey

    Ooh this feels so crazy
    Oh this love is blazin'
    Baby we're so high
    Walking on cloud 9
    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    My shoes are scraping the sky

    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    You got me up so high
    My shoes are scraping the sky ooh...ooh...

  • The current trend in vintage style brings a timeless quality to the necklines, silhouettes, and  embellishments of days past.  In fact, renowned fashion stylist and creative director of The Vintage Wedding Dress Company, Charlie Brear, has created a collection that celebrates the Decades in a most elegant way. Charlie's inspiration for each of the six dresses came from her years of sourcing vintage wedding dress styles and combining her favorite fashion intricacies of each decade- from the 1920's through the 1970's.


        


               The 1920's


    With the 1920's came a pinnacle point in history, when overly formal garments were cast aside and fashion entered the modern front.  The relaxed construction, low-slung waist, and plunging neckline of this gown is a sophisticated take on the accessible flapper fashion of the decade.  A headband worn on the forehead is a simple way to replicate 1920's style, and a chic alternative to traditional headpieces.



    The 1930's                       


    The decade of the 1930's saw a resurgence in feminine silhouettes and has often been characterized as the decade of glamour.  Gowns made with material cut on the bias created lustrous folds of fabric that draped the body. This gown flatters curves with a high waistband, cross over bodice, and crepe satin fabric cut on the bias in true 1930's fashion.



                                 The 1940's


    Dominated by World War II, the 1940's most notably emphasized classic styles and creative sleeving in women's fashion.  The clean, fluid lines of this timeless gown feature a charming cowl neckline and lace sleeves.  The end of war-time rationing at the close of the decade gave rise to fuller skirts and the New Look that carried on into the 1950's.



                                                             The 1950's


    It was nipped waists and full calf-length skirts abound during the Baby Boom of the 1950's.  The look came from Paris and was almost entirely credited to Christian Dior.  Garments of the decade featured abundance in decorative detailing and luxurious layers of fabric.  But what would a 1950's inspired wedding be without a signature birdcage veil?



                                  The 1960's


    Formal fashion in the early 1960's was in large part influenced by first lady, Jackie O.  The look was graceful, featuring slim-fitting sleeveless sheaths and opera length gloves.  As the decade progressed and the hippie movement grew,  A-line dresses with organically flowing sleeves, watteau trains, and head wreaths of real flowers epitomized the style of the decade.  This dress captures the timeless, chic 1960's with a boat neck and empire waist.



                                  The 1970's


    Fashion in the 1970's can best be described as self-expressive and romantic.  Nothing was off-limits; patterned fabrics and the innovative styling of necklines and embellishments gained popularity.  Here, Charlie frames the body with a freely billowing chiffon skirt, perfect for an outdoor summer wedding.


     


    If you're a vintage-inspired bride, what decade speaks most to you?  Infusing your wedding with vintage style not only embodies the fashion of the decade, but can also reflect the ideals of the time.

  • DIY Bottle Labels



    When I started planning my wedding, my already married sister gave me some advice: choose three things that are important to you and leave the rest to someone else. Invitations and decorations top the list and although I have a whole slew of DIY projects up my sleeve, this is by far my favorite.


    THOUGHT PROCESS: Sangria is our signature drink and I really love the idea of using corks and empty  wine bottles to decorate the three different wedding locations. With this in mind, I really want to have some interesting flower holders at the cocktail hour for people to also take away as favors. But who wants a boring old empty wine bottle and another bud vase? Thinking cap!


    I saw a catalog for Artful Home and tucked in the back were these reversed etched colored bottles with very cool sayings (the entire bottle was etched, leaving the letters in clear glass). Sayings like: LOVE - Warning causes dizziness. Recommended in excess, DREAMS: Drink deeply and believe. They were perfect wedding sayings but outrageously expensive bottles so I decided to make my own version! No etching only labeling....my style.


    ITEMS NEEDED:

    1. Wine bottles - lots of 'em. I retrieved the wine bottles being thrown out after a christmas party at my work. No worries, they knew what I was doing. Straight ones are better than v-shaped ones I have come to find out. Soak the labels off and clean well. I like clear ones, but colored ones are fun too

    2. Paper and printer - you will have to experiment to see which works best with your printer. Paper cutter, Glue stick,


    3. Embellishments - I used a silver paint pen and ribbon


    STEP BY STEP:


    1. Using Word, I took the sayings from the catalog, added our names and wedding date, put them into a border I got from Clip Art, played around with color and accents and then printed on a laser printer at work. SHHH.

    Here is my first attempt:




    2. I lined the edges with a silver paint pen, trying a couple of different options - silver paint, a silver sharpie, but the silver paint pen worked the best.

    This is the final label product although the picture is not as crisp as I would like.



    Here is the corner.



    3. So now that I have the label, a bottle is in order. I recommend buying lots of bottles of wine you like, sharing them with your FI, all in the name of science, well, an experiment, ok, a trial of sorts. Or you can steal them from parties you attend. I found that the perfectly round bottles, while boring in shape, make for the best specimen.

    4. I thought I would try spray glue first, I hear it is good for everything. At my first attempt, it turned out gloppy, too thick in one area and not enough in another. It oozed out the sides of the label as I tried to smooth it out...yuck. It also soaked into the paper in the areas where is was thicker and ruined the label. Here is what it looked like.


     




     



    5. So for my next experiment, I tried a super bond glue stick and a completely cylindrical bottle which made the smoothing out a lot easier. I would highly recommend using the glue stick cause it allows for adjusting.



    Here is one of the final products, with some added ribbon and voila - a personalized wine bottle/vase to go the tables at our cocktail hour and to scatter around the mansion we are using for our wedding day festivities. Tags will be added with little notes encouraging people to take these home as a momento of our wedding.



    It is an easy project and adds a personalized touch to your special day.


    NOTE: I would not recommend putting these in water.


    Enjoy!

  • PWer Chest173 provides directions for making these gorgeous paper flower bouquets!  These are perfect for creating a whimsical look in floral for your bridal party, would make a fabulous toss bouquet, or can be used in an infinite number of ways to decorate your ceremony and reception.  


    __________________________________________________________________


    Materials


    Masking tape(I like it better than green floral tape, I think it was stickier and if it showed at all, it matched)


    Very light text weight paper, or tissue paper


    Wooden skewers-I broke them up to be about 4 inches


    Scissors


    Yarn-for the big fluffy ones, they add a nice texture and break it up a bit


    Styrofoam ball-whatever size you want, I used the biggest I could find!



    Carnations


    1. Roll up a small piece of paper and attach with tape to the top of the skewer, this is to keep the petals from just falling off. I did this with the rosettes too.


    2.Cut between 4-8 circles, depending on how big you want the flower, and poke a small hole in the middle


    3.Starting with the first piece of paper, scrunch it up, no need to be neat with it! And continue with all the pieces of paper. Add a little piece of tape on the bottom to keep them from sliding out too.


    I used 3 different colors for these because I wanted them to be the main flower




    Rosettes


    1.Cut a spiral out of a piece of paper, about 4x4 inches


    2.Roll all the way down, slightly pinching just to make it tight


    3.Slide a skewer through the top and add a piece of tape underneath


    I used these mainly to fill the spaces left between the flowers since they are really small!



    Yarn Poms


    1.Twist about 3-4 feet(yes feet) of yarn between your fingers and slide off when finished


    2.Cut a single piece of yarn and place on top, pull very tight and tie at the end of the roll, not in the middle


    3.Cut through all the loops until you get a very messy ball


    4.Cut off all the ends until you are just left with a fuzzy ball


    5.Stick a skewer through the bottom(just a plain skewer, no paper or tape on it). There should be two little strings left from when you tied it, tape those to the skewer. They will be wobbly, but it's ok because the other flowers will hold it up






    I used the biggest size styrofoam ball Michaels had, I think 9 inches. I didn't push the flowers all the way down so it would be a little fuller. Each ball took about 150 flowers!



    Finished product!

    Not only can you shop within a budget but you don't have to go to a million different stores to find everything.

    And to accent the pickup is a long cathedral veil, it gives it a bold and very bridal look to it.
    To finish it off these beautiful shoes that you can get in any color.
    I picked very simple jewelry for this ensemble because it really didn't need much more.

    Veil  $69.99 + $6.95 = $76.94

Invitations and decorations top the list and although I have a whole slew of DIY projects up my sleeve, this is by far my favorite.


    THOUGHT PROCESS: Sangria is our signature drink and I really love the idea of using corks and empty  wine bottles to decorate the three different wedding locations. With this in mind, I really want to have some interesting flower holders at the cocktail hour for people to also take away as favors. But who wants a boring old empty wine bottle and another bud vase? Thinking cap!


    I saw a catalog for Artful Home and tucked in the back were these reversed etched colored bottles with very cool sayings (the entire bottle was etched, leaving the letters in clear glass). Sayings like: LOVE - Warning causes dizziness. Recommended in excess, DREAMS: Drink deeply and believe. They were perfect wedding sayings but outrageously expensive bottles so I decided to make my own version! No etching only labeling....my style.


    ITEMS NEEDED:

    1. Wine bottles - lots of 'em. I retrieved the wine bottles being thrown out after a christmas party at my work. No worries, they knew what I was doing. Straight ones are better than v-shaped ones I have come to find out. Soak the labels off and clean well. I like clear ones, but colored ones are fun too

    2. Paper and printer - you will have to experiment to see which works best with your printer. Paper cutter, Glue stick,


    3. Embellishments - I used a silver paint pen and ribbon


    STEP BY STEP:


    1. Using Word, I took the sayings from the catalog, added our names and wedding date, put them into a border I got from Clip Art, played around with color and accents and then printed on a laser printer at work. SHHH.

    Here is my first attempt:




    2. I lined the edges with a silver paint pen, trying a couple of different options - silver paint, a silver sharpie, but the silver paint pen worked the best.

    This is the final label product although the picture is not as crisp as I would like.



    Here is the corner.



    3. So now that I have the label, a bottle is in order. I recommend buying lots of bottles of wine you like, sharing them with your FI, all in the name of science, well, an experiment, ok, a trial of sorts. Or you can steal them from parties you attend. I found that the perfectly round bottles, while boring in shape, make for the best specimen.

    4. I thought I would try spray glue first, I hear it is good for everything. At my first attempt, it turned out gloppy, too thick in one area and not enough in another. It oozed out the sides of the label as I tried to smooth it out...yuck. It also soaked into the paper in the areas where is was thicker and ruined the label. Here is what it looked like.


     




     



    5. So for my next experiment, I tried a super bond glue stick and a completely cylindrical bottle which made the smoothing out a lot easier. I would highly recommend using the glue stick cause it allows for adjusting.



    Here is one of the final products, with some added ribbon and voila - a personalized wine bottle/vase to go the tables at our cocktail hour and to scatter around the mansion we are using for our wedding day festivities. Tags will be added with little notes encouraging people to take these home as a momento of our wedding.



    It is an easy project and adds a personalized touch to your special day.


    NOTE: I would not recommend putting these in water.


    Enjoy!

  • PWer Chest173 provides directions for making these gorgeous paper flower bouquets!  These are perfect for creating a whimsical look in floral for your bridal party, would make a fabulous toss bouquet, or can be used in an infinite number of ways to decorate your ceremony and reception.  


    __________________________________________________________________


    Materials


    Masking tape(I like it better than green floral tape, I think it was stickier and if it showed at all, it matched)


    Very light text weight paper, or tissue paper


    Wooden skewers-I broke them up to be about 4 inches


    Scissors


    Yarn-for the big fluffy ones, they add a nice texture and break it up a bit


    Styrofoam ball-whatever size you want, I used the biggest I could find!



    Carnations


    1. Roll up a small piece of paper and attach with tape to the top of the skewer, this is to keep the petals from just falling off. I did this with the rosettes too.


    2.Cut between 4-8 circles, depending on how big you want the flower, and poke a small hole in the middle


    3.Starting with the first piece of paper, scrunch it up, no need to be neat with it! And continue with all the pieces of paper. Add a little piece of tape on the bottom to keep them from sliding out too.


    I used 3 different colors for these because I wanted them to be the main flower




    Rosettes


    1.Cut a spiral out of a piece of paper, about 4x4 inches


    2.Roll all the way down, slightly pinching just to make it tight


    3.Slide a skewer through the top and add a piece of tape underneath


    I used these mainly to fill the spaces left between the flowers since they are really small!



    Yarn Poms


    1.Twist about 3-4 feet(yes feet) of yarn between your fingers and slide off when finished


    2.Cut a single piece of yarn and place on top, pull very tight and tie at the end of the roll, not in the middle


    3.Cut through all the loops until you get a very messy ball


    4.Cut off all the ends until you are just left with a fuzzy ball


    5.Stick a skewer through the bottom(just a plain skewer, no paper or tape on it). There should be two little strings left from when you tied it, tape those to the skewer. They will be wobbly, but it's ok because the other flowers will hold it up






    I used the biggest size styrofoam ball Michaels had, I think 9 inches. I didn't push the flowers all the way down so it would be a little fuller. Each ball took about 150 flowers!



    Finished product!
