Below is my cake inspiration.  I love how the cake tiers consist of round and square shapes - so definitely a great compromise.  The orchids and curly willow add the right amount of color and contrast.

It's great taking a break from wedding planning to do these DIY projects.  It was a lot easier and fun than I expected.

 

My DIY Hair Flower:  I gathered supplies around the house and bought a magnolia bush I found at Dollar Tree to make this.

I found these particular blogs throughout the wedding planning process.  It felt like a treasure hunt sometimes.  I get excited over the things I find on these blogs.  The people behind these blogs are really talented and amazing people who have a lot to share about their work and life.  I can tell they truly love what they do and that makes me love to visit their blogs more and more.  You can call me a Blog Stalker. =)  Overall, these are great sources for keeping up with wedding trends and most of all...find INSPIRATION.

Unique Inspiration and freebies can be found here on these active blogs...

Our wedding day will begin with a tea ceremony at the bride's home.  As part of the Vietnamese tradition, the bride and groom both wear ao dai.  My stubborn groom-to-be refuses to wear one, so it will be just me and my BM's wearing ao dai.  My ao dai will either be pink, yellow or gold.  I may go for a boatneck or v-neck style, rather than the traditional high collar.  I found these styles on aodaistyles.com and aodaivinh.com.

For makeup, I am looking to have dramatic eyes, rosy cheeks and pink/light coral colored lips with a touch of shimmer/gloss.

For hair, I am thinking to have side swept bangs, loose waves in a low side ponytail. 

Update: 3/11/09 - Pic on the right is Beatie...isn't she gorgeous?  thx to MissQ for pointing it out.  I had no clue.

Maybe I will change it up at the reception with a low updo.
