  • What a Wonderful World Artist: Louis Armstrong Album: Not Provided Description Not Provided Lyrics http://popup.lala.com/popup/937030274867331560

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
    They're really saying I love you.

    I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more than I'll never know
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world. Video Not Provided

  • Instead of a trinket that (let's be honest) will most likely get tossed out in a week or two... why not give a unique, unforgettable, and inexpensive favor that will last a lifetime?


    The Arbor Day Foundation has a wonderful favor program that makes this sustainable concept easy and affordable.  Most importantly, the program supports The Arbor Day's mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees!  Your guests will delight in the lasting memory, and appreciate the thoughtful sentiment.



    The Arbor Day Foundation offers three options of evergreen trees: redwoods, pines, or spruce trees.  Each tree comes packed in a recyclable tube that converts into a birdfeeder after the tree is planted!  Make the favor even more unique by opting for a customized label, featuring a special saying, photograph, or a personal message.



    You can tie the theme into your entire wedding, shower, or rehearsal dinner by incorporating the gift trees into your bouquet, centerpieces, and other decor.  Your floral designer can work with the trees to keep their root systems intact.  Even the trees from your bouquet will be ready for planting after the big day!



    The Arbor Day Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation and education organization. Visit their site for more information on how to make these special trees part of your wedding day!

  • PW'er AnnieGee added natural elegance to her December wedding reception with these simple yet stunning DIY centerpieces.  


    Each tall vase contained several bronze hand-painted curly willow branches.  Fresh white Singapore Orchids, shiny gems, and tea light lanterns completed the look.


    Her tables were outfitted in white linens, with white chair covers and sashes creating a simple, beautiful, and clean ambiance for her guests.

  • Unless you spend a lot of time with stationery, the vast array of paper and cardstock options might overwhelm you as you try to choose your wedding invitation cards and save the date wedding magnets. Before staring blankly into the aisles at your local paper shop, familiarize yourself with some of the terms and options below.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Cardstock

    Card stock is a matte paper that is available in a variety of weights and colors. Heavier stocks can be quite stiff and durable and work well as standalone inserts and as the base material for invitations. Prices vary depending on quality, weight and finish. Cardstock is available in solid colors, various textures, with metallic sheens, with sparkle details, and can be made with recycled materials.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Deckle Edge

    A deckle edge, also known as a "feather edge," is the ragged edge of the paper as it comes from the papermaking machine. While this is usually trimmed off, leaving it in place creates a popular textured edging. This look can be re-created by tearing or sawing at the paper's edge. This slightly uneven effect offers a handmade appeal to more sophisticated papers.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Cotton Fiber

    Cotton-fiber paper is a great option for the eco-friendly couple; the paper is made mostly (or entirely) out of cotton. This relatively tree-free alternative to pulp-based paper is both sturdy and elegant and works well with the latest electronic imaging techniques and printing processes.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Handmade Paper

    Handmade paper is often custom-designed and made-to-order. Choose this option if you want your invitations one-of-a-kind and natural-looking. Flowers, herbs and vegetables comprise this textured paper. Some handmade-paper companies also offer seeded papers; these sheets of paper have seeds embedded in their makeup and can be planted in your guests' gardens after the wedding.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Laid

    Papers with a laid finish are designed to emulate paper as it appeared when it was first invented. Vertical and horizontal patterns intersect to create "chain lines." This paper is lightweight, textured and projects a sophisticated image.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Linen

    Linen paper is self-explanatory: the semi-rough texture mirrors that of linen cloth with slightly lifted grooves.  This is a classic option and gives a traditional look to invitations. Even a standard printing job looks elegant with this texture behind it.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Parchment

    Parchment paper has a translucent appearance and looks gently aged. This is another popular traditional option that is available in a variety of colors and weights. Deckle-edge parchment adds a sophisticated-yet-rustic hand-torn element to the beautiful material.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Overlays

    Overlays are translucent or delicate papers that layer on top of another sturdier stock. A basic card stock is instantly dressed up with the addition of a romantic semi-sheer overlay.


     


    Wedding Invitation Cards: Vellum

    Vellum is a fine translucent paper that most often sits as an overlay on wedding invitation cards. Because of its delicate nature, guests can read through the vellum and see faint outlines of the images below. Most stationery and paper suppliers will have a variety of colors to choose from, allowing your top layer to cast a soft hue on the invitation below.

  • Endless Love Artist: Lional Richie and diana ross Album: Not Provided Description Not Provided Lyrics

    My love,
    There's only you in my life
    The only thing that's bright


    My first love,
    You're every breath that I take
    You're every step I make


    And I
    (I-I-I-I-I)
    I want to share
    All my love with you
    No one else will do...


    And your eyes
    Your eyes, your eyes
    They tell me how much you care
    Ooh yes, you will always be
    My endless love


    Two hearts,
    Two hearts that beat as one
    Our lives have just begun


    Forever
    (Ohhhhhh)
    I'll hold you close in my arms
    I can't resist your charms


    And love
    Oh, love
    I'll be a fool
    For you,
    I'm sure
    You know I don't mind
    Oh, you know I don't mind


    'Cause you,
    You mean the world to me
    Oh
    I know
    I know
    I've found in you
    My endless love


    Oooh-woow
    Boom, boom
    Boom, boom, boom, boom, booom
    Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom


    Oooh, and love
    Oh, love
    I'll be that fool
    For you,
    I'm sure
    You know I don't mind
    Oh you know-
    I don't mind


    And, YES
    You'll be the only one
    'Cause NO one can deny
    This love I have inside
    And I'll give it all to you
    My love
    My love, my love
    My endless love

  • Australian-based emerging bridesmaid label, Ava Madison, is in the business of reinvention.  Co-founders, Michelle and Natalie, had a vision of feminine, yet glamorous bridesmaid dresses and evening wear that simply didn't seem to exist in the marketplace.  And thus, Ava Madison's sophisticated, chic collection was born.



    The designers focus on lush, quality fabrics and expert craftsmanship to create a flattering fit for all members of a bridal party.  Their signature look is a classic silhouette paired with glamorous accents.



    The dresses emanate a timeless quality, perfect for a woman who luxuriates in contemporary accents and details, but remains grounded in a love for elegant silhouettes and fabrics that will be eternally stylish.



    Available in an array of colors, most styles are also suitable for garden or beach ceremony bridal attire.



    With ten dresses in the current collection- each more angelic than the next- I'd imagine that Ava Madison won't be Australia's newest bridal secret for much longer!

  • Handmade wedding invitations are becoming an increasingly popular choice among couples that want one-of-a-kind wedding invitations with a personal touch. While handmade can mean "do-it-yourself," many companies now offer custom handmade wedding invitations to brides and grooms wanting a unique stationery option.


     


    Handmade Wedding Invitations: Do-It-Yourself

    For creative couples, making their own handmade wedding invitations is a great budget-friendly option that gives complete creative control over the final outcome. Stationery shops and online retailers cater to do-it-yourselfers and provide cardstock, blank paper pockets, pre-cut inserts, and often even offer classes on paper crafts.


    Pre-folded blank cards often look more professional and precise than folding the paper yourselves; do-it-yourself packages and pre-cut designs save time without compromising your handmade vision. Online card templates make for easy designing; either design your cards with software and have them professionally printed, or opt for printed text that is then printed and attached to your cardstock.


    Use additional materials to give your cards a custom touch; attach a vellum layer, tiny gemstones, ribbons or lace. Play with your design ideas and create a template wedding invitation. Once you're happy with your homemade design, purchase the needed materials and create an at-home assembly line as you put your invitations together.


     


    Handmade Wedding Invitations: Order Handmade Elements

    Many handmade wedding invitation companies offer handmade paper as an eco-friendly stationery option. These papers are often tree-free; some are made from discarded cloths, silks and grasses, while other handmade papers include seeds embedded in their makeup, making them plantable.


    Some handmade-invitation retailers will let you dictate how much of the cards you want to assemble on your own. Have the basic invitation elements and inserts printed, and then save money by assembling and adding personal touches at home.


     


    Handmade Wedding Invitations: Custom-Ordered

    With a growing demand for handmade wedding invitations, the number of companies providing homemade wedding invitations is growing rapidly. This demand ensures that the service is also becoming more affordable.


    Find a retailer that offers designs similar to the one you've envisioned and then customize the invitations from there. Each element of the invitation is made-to-order, so choose papers, fonts, colors, ribbons and decorative elements that best reflect your wedding. As each individual invitation is handcrafted, expect handmade invitations to be pricier than standard printed ones, and also anticipate a longer waiting period as they're being made.


    Just because you want a handmade invitation doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the style or function seen in factory-made ones. Choose traditional monograms and borders for an elegant affair; opt for a pocketfold design with clean fonts and bold graphics for a more modern look. With your handmade wedding invitations, you don't have to adhere to specific rules or trends; blend traditional design with modern sensibility. Work with the company's experienced staff to create an invitation that is uniquely you.

  • PWer *MrsMiller* had a gorgeous 4-tier white fondant cake.  The bottom tier was square and topped with three smaller round tiers.  


    Each tier had a hand-cut and piped design reminiscent of Alencon lace, much like that on the brides gown.  Sparkling rhinestones accented the cake, which was finished with a large hand made fondant bow and a monogram topper.


    The cake sat on a silver cake stand on a table scattered with large faux diamonds.
