  • PWer Aug_09_Bride had a festive, colorful, and fresh 3-Tier square cake.


    Each tier was separated by a riser and then offset, which created an interesting 'twist' on traditional square stacking.  Bright teal ribbons, pink and orange Gerbera daisies, pink roses, and a delicate hand-piped design gave the cake a fresh and elegant summer look.

    The bride says:  The cake was frosted with Butter Cream frosting. There were 3 layers; 2 layers were Chocolate Baileys and the largest layer was Strawberries and Champagne. My favorite was the Strawberries and Champagne because the cake was light and the filling had fresh strawberries. It was nice and light for a summer afternoon wedding.

  • These seasonal favors are easy, inexpensive, and oh-so-charming!  Put them atop each place setting, arrange them en masse on a favor table, or even group them together in the center of each table for a casual centerpiece that guests can easily take home at the end of your event.

    We picked up small pots of bulbs in bloom at our local grocery store for $3.99 each; each pot had 3 flowers in it, which averages to $1.33 per stem.  (Tulips are a colorful and widely-available choice; hyacinths are also a pretty, very fragrant alternative.)



    We removed each bulb from the pot and planted it in a small plastic cup.  Each cup was placed inside a mini brown paper bag, decorated with guests' initials.  (If you're using a group of these flower bags as a centerpiece, you can write the table number on each one.)  We punched holes at the top of each bag, and added grommets to the front holes for a finished look.  Stringing ribbon through the holes is a pretty finish, and also keeps the flowers straight in the bag.

    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

  • Atlanta Wedding Favors

    The wedding favor is a gift from the bride and groom that is given to guests to take home as a memory of their special occasion. Traditional options include candles and a decorative bag of Jordan almonds. However, more couples are incorporating their shared interests and city pride into their wedding favors.


     


    Fun Atlanta Wedding Favors

    Since Atlanta is home to one of the most iconic sodas in the world, a quirky wedding favor idea is to pay homage to the city's World of Coca-Cola. Atlanta natives may get a kick out of toasting with personalized keepsakes in the shape of Coca Cola bottles, featuring the faces of the newlyweds alongside customized messages. Since peach trees are plentiful in Atlanta, fresh peaches also make fun (and tasty) local Atlanta wedding favors. Perhaps you can incorporate a favorite sporting team, such as the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Braves, or the Atlanta Falcons.


     


    Unique Atlanta Wedding Favors: Do Me a Favor

    A wedding party isn’t a party without the proper wedding favors to send guests home in the right spirit. From personalized Frisbees to bottled water with a comical picture of the bride and groom, Do Me a Favor's owner, Regina Robinson, has been in the business for more than 10 years. The company not only supplies unique Atlanta wedding favors, but also designs custom invitations, theme party décor, handcrafted greeting cards, and helps with event planning. If you have a special wedding theme in mind, you might want to hire Do Me a Favor for more than just the take-home keepsakes.


     


    Personalized Atlanta Wedding Favors: Escape Concepts 

    Escape Concepts recognizes the ever-changing trends of wedding favors and they supply in-demand items, like disposable cameras. Choose from a range of decorative camera options, including butterflies, cherry blossoms, double hearts, and daisies. You can even select personalized cameras to decorate tables, creating the perfect keepsakes. Popular favors for Atlanta weddings include personalized items, such as lollipops, hard candy, and chopsticks.

    The Power of Photo Keepsakes

    A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Spread the love by choosing personalized photo keepsakes as your wedding favors. The possibilities are endless, which include blending bride and groom baby pictures, sharing engagement photos, or showing off your silly side. There are also plenty of options for displaying your images, including glass clocks, paperweights, coffee mugs, and photo puzzles.

  • PWer Melly1588 proves that a platinum look can be had on a budget with these gorgeous DIY centerpieces!


    Purple silk orchids were submerged in tall, elegant vases with river rocks and bamboo adding a natural touch.  Floating candles and tea lights provided a romantic glow and reflected light off of faux diamonds scattered around each table.  Guests found their seat with DIY table frames that showcased photos of the bride and groom and blinged-out silver numbers. White linens and a purple table runner completed the look.

    The Celebrity Weddings forecast:

    The Oscars are over, the Super Bowl is done, and your pocketbook is still feeling a little light.  Why  not start a celebrity wedding pool? Plenty of celebs are set to dum-dum-de-dum.  We've even done the legwork and handicapped the players for you:


    The first ones in the honeymoon suite will likely be ...


    "The Bachelor"'s Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney! After that awkward moment when Jason chose her rival Melissa on national TV, Jason about-faced and popped the question to Molly in October at the site of one of their romantic show dates - Queenstown, New Zealand.  Next month, ABC will air their whole official wedding shebang at 8 p.m. on March 8, including footage of her bridal gown fitting, their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the actual ceremony.


    Next in line is Jenna Fischer from "The Office"! The show's adorable receptionist is engaged to writer Lee Kirk in real life, and has been busily planning a summer wedding at a secret location somewhere in L.A. We're thrilled, but wonder:  How can she possibly top her primetime TV nuptials - when the Dunder Mifflin gang came boogeying down the aisle like the wedding party in the YouTube sensation "JK Wedding Entrance"?


    Right behind Jenna is her TV hubby, John Krasinski , who off-camera proposed to British babe Emily Blunt, from "The Devil Wears Prada," in 2008. The two have been mum on wedding plans so far but maybe seeing pal Pam get hitched will put a little fire in his giddyup!


    Speaking of international couples, wacky Brit comic Russell Brand and pop princess Katy Perry are also newly engaged.  The duo were all over each other at the Grammys, where Brand couldn't resist telling E!'s Ryan Seacrest how he almost botched proposing to the "I Kissed a Girl" singer while they vacationed over the Christmas holiday in India.  "We were on an elephant, it was at midnight -- and it is not a good idea to be on the back of an elephant during a fireworks display!" he warned.


    Talk about fireworks! Original "Beverly Hills, 90210" hunk Ian Ziering is in love again and says he's planning a spring wedding to fiancé Erin Kristine Ludwig -- a nurse! Maybe the second time's the charm for Ian. He divorced his first wife, a Playboy Playmate, in 2002.


    Also head over heels is "Crazy Love" crooner Michael Buble, who couldn't stop gushing to Oprah Winfrey about fiance Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre, even if her name is longer than his tour bus! Buble popped the question to the Argentinian actress in late 2009 after they were introduced at a party in 2008.


    One of the White House's most famous first daughters, little Chelsea Clinton, is also expected to wed longtime boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky, this summer. Mama Hillary told reporters in February she's looking forward to being the "MOTB," or Mother of the Bride, and has been dress-shopping with Chelsea.


    Over at the Kardashian crib, now that reality star Khloe's hitched, which of her sisters will be the next to walk down the aisle? Kim told a radio deejay that she and longtime beau Reggie Bush wouldn't wed until he won the big game, which the Saints did on Feb. 7. While Kourtney recently called her baby daddy Scott Disick one of the "loves of her life." 


    Fellow E! personality, Tara Reid, formerly as in "Taradise: Wild On!," is also freshly engaged to Internet entrepreneur Mike Axtmann, who popped the question in January. Here's hoping there are no wardrobe malfunctions and Tara's wedding dress stays up!


    But, of course, the big question is: Will this be the year that Brangelina make it official? Although the tabloids make it sound as if they're on the rocks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie never do anything predictably. So why not hold a top-secret wedding? Ditto for longtime partners Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, who have been together for years, but  just became engaged last Valentine's Day.


    Meanwhile, country fans are counting the minutes until Carrie Underwood weds Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher. He proposed to the "Cowboy Casanova" singer in December with a giant yellow diamond ring designed for her by jeweler Johnathon Arndt, and estimated at a  whopping $150,000 plus!

  • Atlanta Wedding Favors

    The wedding favor is a gift from the bride and groom that is given to guests to take home as a memory of their special occasion. Traditional options include candles and a decorative bag of Jordan almonds. However, more couples are incorporating their shared interests and city pride into their wedding favors.


     


    Fun Atlanta Wedding Favors

    Since Atlanta is home to one of the most iconic sodas in the world, a quirky wedding favor idea is to pay homage to the city's World of Coca-Cola. Atlanta natives may get a kick out of toasting with personalized keepsakes in the shape of Coca Cola bottles, featuring the faces of the newlyweds alongside customized messages. Since peach trees are plentiful in Atlanta, fresh peaches also make fun (and tasty) local Atlanta wedding favors. Perhaps you can incorporate a favorite sporting team, such as the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Braves, or the Atlanta Falcons.


     


    Unique Atlanta Wedding Favors: Do Me a Favor

    A wedding party isn’t a party without the proper wedding favors to send guests home in the right spirit. From personalized Frisbees to bottled water with a comical picture of the bride and groom, Do Me a Favor's owner, Regina Robinson, has been in the business for more than 10 years. The company not only supplies unique Atlanta wedding favors, but also designs custom invitations, theme party décor, handcrafted greeting cards, and helps with event planning. If you have a special wedding theme in mind, you might want to hire Do Me a Favor for more than just the take-home keepsakes.


     


    Personalized Atlanta Wedding Favors: Escape Concepts

    The Power of Photo Keepsakes

    A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Spread the love by choosing personalized photo keepsakes as your wedding favors. The possibilities are endless, which include blending bride and groom baby pictures, sharing engagement photos, or showing off your silly side. There are also plenty of options for displaying your images, including glass clocks, paperweights, coffee mugs, and photo puzzles.

  • PWer Melly1588 proves that a platinum look can be had on a budget with these gorgeous DIY centerpieces!


    Purple silk orchids were submerged in tall, elegant vases with river rocks and bamboo adding a natural touch.  Floating candles and tea lights provided a romantic glow and reflected light off of faux diamonds scattered around each table.  Guests found their seat with DIY table frames that showcased photos of the bride and groom and blinged-out silver numbers. White linens and a purple table runner completed the look.

    The Celebrity Weddings forecast:

    The Oscars are over, the Super Bowl is done, and your pocketbook is still feeling a little light.  Why  not start a celebrity wedding pool? Plenty of celebs are set to dum-dum-de-dum.  We've even done the legwork and handicapped the players for you:


    The first ones in the honeymoon suite will likely be ...


    "The Bachelor"'s Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney! After that awkward moment when Jason chose her rival Melissa on national TV, Jason about-faced and popped the question to Molly in October at the site of one of their romantic show dates - Queenstown, New Zealand.  Next month, ABC will air their whole official wedding shebang at 8 p.m. on March 8, including footage of her bridal gown fitting, their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the actual ceremony.


    Next in line is Jenna Fischer from "The Office"! The show's adorable receptionist is engaged to writer Lee Kirk in real life, and has been busily planning a summer wedding at a secret location somewhere in L.A. We're thrilled, but wonder:  How can she possibly top her primetime TV nuptials - when the Dunder Mifflin gang came boogeying down the aisle like the wedding party in the YouTube sensation "JK Wedding Entrance"?


    Right behind Jenna is her TV hubby, John Krasinski , who off-camera proposed to British babe Emily Blunt, from "The Devil Wears Prada," in 2008. The two have been mum on wedding plans so far but maybe seeing pal Pam get hitched will put a little fire in his giddyup!


    Speaking of international couples, wacky Brit comic Russell Brand and pop princess Katy Perry are also newly engaged.  The duo were all over each other at the Grammys, where Brand couldn't resist telling E!'s Ryan Seacrest how he almost botched proposing to the "I Kissed a Girl" singer while they vacationed over the Christmas holiday in India.  "We were on an elephant, it was at midnight -- and it is not a good idea to be on the back of an elephant during a fireworks display!" he warned.


    Talk about fireworks! Original "Beverly Hills, 90210" hunk Ian Ziering is in love again and says he's planning a spring wedding to fiancé Erin Kristine Ludwig -- a nurse! Maybe the second time's the charm for Ian. He divorced his first wife, a Playboy Playmate, in 2002.


    Also head over heels is "Crazy Love" crooner Michael Buble, who couldn't stop gushing to Oprah Winfrey about fiance Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre, even if her name is longer than his tour bus! Buble popped the question to the Argentinian actress in late 2009 after they were introduced at a party in 2008.


    One of the White House's most famous first daughters, little Chelsea Clinton, is also expected to wed longtime boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky, this summer. Mama Hillary told reporters in February she's looking forward to being the "MOTB," or Mother of the Bride, and has been dress-shopping with Chelsea.


    Over at the Kardashian crib, now that reality star Khloe's hitched, which of her sisters will be the next to walk down the aisle? Kim told a radio deejay that she and longtime beau Reggie Bush wouldn't wed until he won the big game, which the Saints did on Feb. 7. While Kourtney recently called her baby daddy Scott Disick one of the "loves of her life." 


    Fellow E! personality, Tara Reid, formerly as in "Taradise: Wild On!," is also freshly engaged to Internet entrepreneur Mike Axtmann, who popped the question in January. Here's hoping there are no wardrobe malfunctions and Tara's wedding dress stays up!


    But, of course, the big question is: Will this be the year that Brangelina make it official? Although the tabloids make it sound as if they're on the rocks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie never do anything predictably. So why not hold a top-secret wedding? Ditto for longtime partners Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, who have been together for years, but  just became engaged last Valentine's Day.


    Meanwhile, country fans are counting the minutes until Carrie Underwood weds Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher. He proposed to the "Cowboy Casanova" singer in December with a giant yellow diamond ring designed for her by jeweler Johnathon Arndt, and estimated at a  whopping $150,000 plus!
