    Antique-style lace, terracotta pottery, and rich, romantic shades of red and pink are just a few of the elements that created a vintage Mexican motif throughout Elizabeth and Yousef’s wedding. These details were impeccably organized by the team of Just Wenderful Event Planning & Design who planned the event and Winston & Main who designed the glamorous florals. The Loft on Pine provided a deconstructed industrial backdrop with its exposed brick walls and dark wood.

    We believe in planning a deeply meaningful beginning to married life, and we love to see couples who feel the same. Molly and Josh’s sweet wedding day is filled with beautiful, yet completely personal details. The two were married in the middle of the giant pecan orchard where Molly has spent hours and hours riding the very same horse that carried her to her groom on her wedding day. They included a selection of Molly’s late grandmother’s favorite hymns within their ceremony, and even rode their prized ponies to their reception at her family’s farm. Topping off their…

    How do you feel about these bohemian style halos, crowns and asymmetrical floral headpieces? Would bright pink and raspberry red roses imbedded in a crown of fragrant, freshly picked eucalyptus leaves (available all year long) make you feel breathtakingly beautiful on a sweet summer day? Now you can make your own with this step by step tutorial on how to make a floral headpiece.

  • Would You Want to Wear Your Website? Branding Thoughts

    Christine
    13 Apr 2015 | 2:29 pm
    If I took your website and made an outfit out of it, and told you to wear it, would you be willing to put it on? Right now, if I went to my closet and picked out an outfit, there is a very good chance that it would involve me wearing either a black top or something with black & white stripes. I’d then add a colorful scarf for a shot of color in there. My website? Based entirely on those colors in my closet. Matter of fact, in my photo for my avatar? I’m wearing a black & white top – with jeans, and my Kate Spade gold glitter Keds. This website needs more Kate Spade…
  • To the Thin Women of the World – I’m Sorry

    I am just going to get this out of the way – I am not at my ideal BMI. I have to shop in the Plus section of the stores most of the time. Ok, I’ll just go ahead and say it. I am … Fat. (Ouch, that was hard.) But that is no excuse for how I have treated you, thin women. Weight is not a competition. There is no “WIN” in comparing myself to you. More importantly, it is not your fault that I am fat. I apologize for all the times that I have said horrible things to you because you are thin. I never noticed this phenomenon until I caught myself saying it to a woman I…
  • Knowing When to Plan… and When to Break All the Rules

    Christine
    24 Mar 2015 | 2:52 pm
    I always thought I was not a planner. Wait. That isn’t true. Back when I was a teenager, I was a planner. I would plan things to do with my friends, what we would do over the summer, that sort of thing. I learned quickly that if I let myself plan, I would overplan. I am rather creative, so I would build up entire scenarios of how things would work out. Then I would be absolutely miserable when my plans did not work out the way I expected. In my 20s, that trend of misery continued, but with greater frequency. It felt like any plans I made just fell apart. So instead of fighting it, I…

    Meet Matt Diaz. Matt has lost 270lbs over the past 6 years. 270lbs. Just the thought of that blows me away. Matt has a Tumblr where he talks a lot about Body Positivity and Body Image. He shares a lot about his journey of changing his life, and the things he still struggles with. Then he shared the video where he shows what 270 pounds worth of excess skin looks like. I’ve included it below – just hit play. http://myannoyances.tumblr.com/post/113791621581/in-which-matt-shows-270-pounds-worth-of-excess I watched the video this morning, and I could not get it out of my head all day.

    When I first saw this photo of this man dancing, my heart hurt. Here he was, happily dancing to the beat – until he noticed someone taking his photo, and he stopped. His body language in the second photo? It just crushes me. Some days, the power of the technology we hold in our hands has such a negative effect. Fortunately, the story does not end there. After he was body-shamed, and the image was posted on Imgur by FrozenBadger telling off the people who did it on 4Chan? A group of body-positive women in California swooped in with a plan. “I decided to tweet it and our offer in the…

    Two Saturdays ago, Mr. W and I tied the knot. It was one of the best days I’ve ever had. When I tell you I have NO complaints, I really don’t. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. Even our spotty Michigan weather was on its best behavior. Our wedding day was the start of our new life together, and if that day is any inclination of the rest of our lives, we should be in for a pretty good one. (Sorry to be corny.)

I also know our stress levels are going to be at maximum capacity. For that reason, I know precisely where Mr. Puffer and I will be three weeks before our wedding. Alone. At the beach.

  • Cala-Married: The Budget Breakdown

    Mrs. Squid
    5 May 2015 | 5:37 am
    Money’s a tough subject because (I think) the conversation immediately becomes one of comparison. That’s not my intention with this post because at the end of day, whether the budget is $1,000 or $10,000, or $100,000, it’s all a lot of money and I think every bride struggles with where to prioritize funds. Researching realistic wedding budgets was what brought me to Weddingbee to begin with and I think it would be somewhat hypocritical of me not to disclose our actual budget breakdown before wrapping up my time here. I will preface this post by saying, please be kind. It appalls no one…

    The famous quote is of course, Let the Buyer Beware, but in the wedding business, oftentimes many of us feel the opposite- Let the Seller Beware. As most of us own and operate small businesses vs. large companies or corporations, the relationship we have with our clients can have huge impacts on not only our company’s mental health but also on our bottom lines… time suck clients for instance, can completely ruin your profit margins if they take up a disproportionate amount of time.

    Nearly twenty years ago, Meredith Waga Perez and her mother Marilyn Waga set out to launch a boutique floral and event business. More than just setting up a shop though, Meredith knew that she wanted to create a brand- more specifically the kind of understated luxury that brands like her formal employer, Calvin Klein embodied. No on in the floral and event space was really communicating that message and Meredith saw the chance for their brand, Belle Fleur New York, to fill that space. From a “technically” speaking standpoint in floral terms, Belle Fleur developed a signature style…

    20 Apr 2015 | 6:04 am
    Before I was a photographer, I just couldn't wrap my head around why I looked SO different in other people's photos than I thought I looked like in real life.  I felt like no matter who took photos of me, it was never the same person in the photo than who I was used to seeing in the mirror or in selfies!  If you feel this way, you're absolutely right, but it's because you actually never get to see yourself as the world sees you until you look at a photograph.  Scene & a most unflattering portrait from Garbo Dreams by Lauren LoGiudice You aren't crazy, or abnormal…

    As an architectural photographer, I occasionally get requests for aerial views of properties.  The only problem is that most of these requests are coming from individual property owners or small businesses who can't afford the highest quality imagery that comes from a helicopter or cherry picker option.  In some cases, even if they could afford it, certain tightly constructed urban areas make it very difficult to get a specific elevation with either of these methods.  Enter: drone photography.  Depending on the model, drone photography becomes a more affordable, albeit…

    We believe in planning a deeply meaningful beginning to married life, and we love to see couples who feel the same. Molly and Josh’s sweet wedding day is filled with beautiful, yet completely personal details. The two were married in the middle of the giant pecan orchard where Molly has spent hours and hours riding the very same horse that carried her to her groom on her wedding day. They included a selection of Molly’s late grandmother’s favorite hymns within their ceremony, and even rode their prized ponies to their reception at her family’s farm. Topping off their…

    As many of you know, Lara and Ari are expecting a baby at the end of July (hooray!). While our print photo shoots usually take place in May, June, July, and August, this year we decided to slide everything up a few months to better accommodate Lara’s maternity leave. So far, we have been LOVING our new, earlier schedule, and have been rewarded with beautiful, warm (not hot) shoot days and glowing (not sweating) models! Lisa and I are also totally tickled that it’s only the beginning of May and we’ve already put three editorials in the books – totally different from…

Megan and photographer Catrina Earls can explain this day better than I could, so I’ll let them take it away! From Megan: After getting engaged, we had gone back and forth on wedding plans. Our families were very spread out, so we weren’t quite sure how we would get everyone in one place and, to be honest, it was all very overwhelming. In a very quick decision, we decided that we’d just get…

Together with her bridesmaids, aunts and family friends, Camry put together the white hydrangea bouquets and magnolia leaf centerpieces.

    Today marks eight years since the launch of WeddingWire—and that’s certainly cause for celebration! In honor of the occasion, we thought it would be fun to look back at the some of the wedding trends we’ve seen and loved over the past eight years. Let’s take a walk down memory lane… Photo Courtesy of The Pastry Studio 2007: Marie Antoinette Inspired Details – This trend was influenced, we suspect, by the eponymous movie premiered previous year. Chateaus and historic mansions were the venues of choice in 2007, and brides accessorized with cameo jewelry and layered pearls.

From the vendors: The vision for this styled shoot was to play upon the exciting seasonal transition of winter to spring in Maine, by invoking a sense of drama that comes with the end of a long and dark winter, while incorporating light and life with the shift that comes with daylight…

    Villeneuvette (A quick link to the new shop is on the right hand sidebar on the blog. Or here.) When I came across those little boxes of prints that I hadn't sold and put them on etsy I was reminded of how nice it is to send my photographs out into the world, to see my pictures as physical objects, to hear that people like them enough to exchange them for money and to know that they will be enjoyed for more than the 15 seconds it takes to skim a blog post. I was also reminded however of what a total pain in the tits wrapping, packaging, labeling and posting things is, and that was…

    We are all in France, together. I don't quite believe it.It is the Spring Holiday so W&P have been off school for two weeks. I'm sick, I have a vile virus that has left me completely useless. I have done nothing for weeks. It has stopped being relaxing and started being stressful and depressing.It's asparagus season. I think asparagus is alright but I don't entirely understand it.All of France smells of wisteria and lilacs.This is our local place to walk and play and go to the organic market on a Tuesday night.

    It always surprises me how quickly I can settle into a routine, even in the most unfamiliar circumstances. I'm someone who likes to know what's coming next, and when I don't know on an existential level it helps to know on a day to day scale.I had half hoped that as soon as I got to France I would have an epiphany, that the clouds would clear and I would start to have a feeling for what the next steps would be. HA! If anything the clouds have thickened and I've spent the last eleven days in a complete fog of cotton-wool brain and treacle limbs. Despite the epic and inexplicable hangover I…

    I have moved to France, alone with my children, to live with my inlaws.

Times are strange.The girls and I flew to Languedoc on Saturday after 24 hours spend mostly crying about the impending move. I'd been so excited about getting out of fucking south London that I forgot I was leaving Nye behind for 18 days, that in nine years the longest we've been apart for was nine days and that the girls won't…

We started racking our brains on what kind of food we could make to look like roses (aside from the ever-popular rose radish garnish), and somehow rose tortilla chips came up! It suddenly seemed like a tortilla could be treated in a similar way that I often use a large paper circle to make paper roses, and thus the experiment began…It definitely took some…

Held at Sarah’s aunt and uncle’s farm in Sawyer, their vision was a garden party feel with rustic elements and a bit of DIY flair. Nearly all of their nearest and dearest helped with the day’s details. Sarah’s younger sister created the stationery, her older sister played during their ceremony, and her father lit the reception tent. Teddy is a cellist and composed the song that played during the bridesmaids’ processional, and his father created beautiful pottery vases for the cocktail…

Yellow tulips - once associated with jealousy in Victorian times - now inspire friendship and fun.

Watermelon is wonderful and I'll tell you why. Several large slices provide you with a little bit of fiber and a whole lot of vitamin A, C and much needed anti-oxidants.

When I read back on earlier posts, I cringe. But nine years later, I think I got it figured out. I love to educate and write!

    You're engaged, you've got the venue and the date, and are so excited to get going on planning! Yet, you're stuck on what the wedding will actually look like. Envisioning the final event means you need to pick invitations, table linens, flowers, lighting, and all the assorted goodies that go with your big party. And of course you've got to start with a color or two (or a few!) that hopefully go together. "But I like everything!" you say.

(First though, make sure you go in person to the county office and pick up your marriage license within 3 and 60 days before the wedding! You can start the process online in Multnomah County, but you both still must go in person to pick it up, with valid ID. More about that here.) You will have given the county clerk $60 and your personal information, and signed your names to a triplicate form. The license is then…

      As my wedding date comes closer, I decided I should check in with my invitations. I ordered them way back in January, because I got a killer deal at Zazzle through Groupon (and it looks like it’s still going!).  I love them, but they are just a flat card, and need some dressing up. I couldn’t mat them, because to save money and paper, I had already decided that whatever I did to them, I needed to make sure they still fit in the original envelopes they came with. Sure, I’d *LOVE* some classy black envelopes, but when you know even the important inside parts are going…

    After my most recent Master’s class, I got into a conversation about wedding planning with a recently engaged classmate. When I asked if she had any ideas about venues yet, she started laughing and said “I have no clue – can’t I just get married at Costco?!” I lit up, for here was a girl after my own heart. We swapped Costco stories all the way to our cars, fantasizing about how incredible it would be to register for multiple boxes of their delicious frozen burritos alongside a KitchenAid mixer and plush Charisma towels (seriously, they’re the best towels I’ve ever had).

    We had some great requests for color scheme inspiration on Facebook, but this one from Lily stood out as an interesting challenge. She’s looking to pair dark purple and warm orange over ivory, accented by rose gold in a Midsummer Night’s Dream-meets-carnival theme. To me, the great Shakespearean play reminds me of Greek-style flowing dresses, floral crowns and an organic feeling while carnivals are bright and showy with lots of light and sparkles. We scrubbed the interwebz for some dreamy inspiration to bring these two great ideas together.   1. Get your guests geared up…

    Because neither of us are religious, our wedding ceremony is entirely up to us to create. That’s awesome, because it gives us a ton of freedom to make a ceremony that strongly represents our relationship. It’s also scary, because we don’t have a clearly prescribed path to follow to prevent disaster. As I sat down to write the initial ceremony draft for my fiance and then our friend/officiant to approve, I was a little overwhelmed by all the options. Via You can approach ceremony writing many different ways, but a three-step process was what worked best for me. 1) Find Your…

    So guys and girls, did you see that new Game of Thrones (GoT) episode the other night? What a way to kick off season 5, what with the whole, erm… Okay, so we haven’t seen it yet, even with all the news about the first 4 episodes being leaked online early. So this morning we’re ignoring all the spoilers, or else we’ll add your name to our list like Arya Stark. Nevertheless, we are disgustingly excited for the new GoT season. We’re not about to recommend you go off and recreate a GoT “red wedding”. Nor are we going to recommend you dress as your favourite characters.
  • Adventure Stag Do Idea: Coasteering

    Staggered
    13 Apr 2015 | 3:02 am
    I’ve done my fair share of adventurous activities, I’ve run with the bulls in Pamplona, been on a budget rally across the world and loads more jaw-droppingly awesome stuff. Throwing myself off a cliff into typically freezing British water isn’t something that I thought of as appealing. There’s the whole episode of putting on a very cold, very tight wetsuit that’s a workout in itself. Oh and don’t even get me started on that whole episode of scrambling over slippery rocks, with sharp craggy crevices. Then there’s the numbness in your fingertips and the…

This doesn’t have to be the case. Thanks to the technological age we live in, help is always accessible and we have to some nifty wedding apps that will leave your woman wondering how she could have ever organised a wedding without you.

    Ajalon
    3 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    The parade of Pantone is sadly coming to an end this week with the reveal of Cashmere Rose. This dusky shade of pink is both soft and romantic. Its mauve undertone gives it an air of sophistication that would be perfect for your fall wedding. As with its predecessor Cadmium Orange, this color is stunning when mixed with like colors for a stunning monochromatic look. For a more rustic feel, you can pair it with touches of lavender, cream, and hunter green. “A play on the ’60s with a twist of today, Cashmere Rose is a tactile and soft pink hue that renders exactly what it…

Yes, it may be important to ensure that Aunt Sally sits at table nine because Uncle Sal and his new wife will be at table five, but the numbers also have another function; service.

    Wedding season has reached full-bore and for those of you still looking to add a vibrant hue to your wedding day color palette, search no further. This week’s Fall 2015 Pantone pick is Cadmium Orange, a soft but spirited shade of orange that is sure to make a statement on your big day. Although this radiant color plays well with others, I prefer to let it stand alone. By mixing in other shades of orange for your monochromatic affair or pairing it with a soft gray, this color is truly striking. A nod to the ’60s and ’70s, Cadmium Orange evokes a sentiment of optimism, fun…

  • Should You Get Married in Vegas?

    admin
    27 Apr 2015 | 2:15 pm
    According to Las Vegas 4 Newbies, over 100,000 couples are wed in the city’s chapels every year. The city might be infamously known for spontaneous marriages that end up getting annulled after a month or so, but the truth about Vegas is that it’s actually quite a romantic city to get hitched in. Imagine exchanging vows on a Tuscan balcony in the Bellagio or saying “I do” while overlooking the valley from the observation deck of the Stratosphere Hotel. If it hadn’t been for the rising popularity of online casinos, wedding packages at casinos probably wouldn’t be as expensive as…

    The main event in most wedding ceremonies is when the bride makes her way down the aisle. Though we can’t argue that this moment is a special one, one that is often similar in sentiment and overwhelming with sweetness is when the rings are brought forward. Ring bearers are often pictured as a 2-3 year old little boy, clumsily making his way down the aisle. This classic choice is one we love, but here are a few others to consider for your big day as well. If the little ring bearer after your heart is a toddler, don’t worry!

I have to say, it’s a look I love. It’s so fresh and elegant and ideal for a summer wedding. It’s also a very brave choice and a little more thought has to go into the styling of the bridal party as it is too easy to lose the bride in a mass of white, but when it’s done right, it’s timeless.

    Last night I watched some other celebrants on YouTube, because I realised I’ve never paid much attention to what others do. It turns out I do things quite a bit different. So I thought it would be worth a blog post to explain what I talk about in a wedding ceremony. I’m an encourager, not an educator. I’m making the assumption that when you walk down the aisle you know what you’re getting yourself into and in the 15 minutes we’re in front of grandma you don’t need relationship or sex-ed. I believe you’re smart enough to figure that out for yourself…

Alas, here we are. One of the more exciting documents us celebrants are held to is the Attorney-General’s “Code of Practice For Marriage Celebrants” which states that: A marriage celebrant must make efforts to ensure that the marriage ceremony is audible to all those present. Which is something the celebrant that inspired me to become a celebrant never did. Now being a bit of a nerd,…

    If there's an issue so critical such as whether a woman will take her husband's last name after marriage, it's holding onto the last name or making a decision to drop it off after divorce. It's an issue that most divorced folks talk about especially if the man keeps on complaining that the ex-wife has stuck to the name and has refused to drop it off even after remarrying. Chances are that the two divorcees might not be seeing eye to eye and apart from discussing their kids, if any; communication is minimized across the board. The man might end up being irritated that the ex-wife is still…

    Name change is a legal process where a person adopts a new name distinct from their name of adoption, marriage or birth. Depending on the jurisdiction, the ease and procedures of name change really vary. Across the United States, changing names is regulated by State laws. If you're not changing your name as a result of marriage, or your name change preference (marriage or not) isn't allowed, you'll have to undergo a court petitioned name change which will involve publishing your name change in the newspaper.

  • Dining Dilemmas: Menu Alternatives to Please Every Palate

    17 Apr 2015 | 8:03 am
    Fact: The majority of US households have someone with a dietary restriction. Accommodating guests’ dietary needs while planning a wedding is increasingly becoming the norm. But what exactly is the etiquette in doing so? The safe option is to give your guests the chance to relay any dietary restrictions on their RSVP card. This way, you will be prepared and able to give the resort ample time to create an alternate menu. If more than a handful of your guests need a special meal, consider a buffet-style dinner so they have a variety of options. Likewise, if a serious food allergy exists…

I have never been one for soppy love stories, fairytales or happy ever afters. I had a few relationships in my 20’s and always wondered why it felt like there was something lacking or something missing. I could not understand why people would get married if they did not have burning passion for one another, or if there was fundamental flaws and issues in their…

    When is an email to your subscribers not simply an email to your subscribers? When it’s a platform for your other social media activity to better engage, inform and entertain your readers, that’s when. Many of you are active on Pinterest and Instagram, curating and creating engaging and persuasive graphics and photos. But most of you are not including those photos in your email updates to your subscribers, and that means you’re missing out on opportunities to broaden your email audience’s experience with your brand, as well as delivering a more interesting mailing.

    Showering a bride and groom with a symbolic item is a practice with roots that go back thousands of years. In ancient Rome, wedding guests threw wheat in celebration of newlywed couples, which symbolized fertility. It also acted as a sort of bouquet-toss; little girls in attendance gathered up the grains for good luck in finding their own happy marriages. Many cultures have adopted a similar tradition, often substituting rice. Would you like to be showered with something festive at your wedding? Feel free to do as the Romans did and use wheat, especially if you don’t care to roll the…

    As you may remember from last week, we recently got to take a peek at Hayley Paige's fall 2015 collection at JLM's  flagship salon on Robertson. While all her dresses were gorgeous, I still can't get over the stunning number below that she designed. From the ever-so-subtle blush color to the pretty floral pattern, I'm absolutely swooning. It's modern, feminine, and utterly dreamy! Here's a close up look of the dress: Photo by My Hotel Wedding Since I was so captivated by this dress, I decided to put together a mood board based on it.

    The main event in most wedding ceremonies is when the bride makes her way down the aisle. Though we can’t argue that this moment is a special one, one that is often similar in sentiment and overwhelming with sweetness is when the rings are brought forward. Ring bearers are often pictured as a 2-3 year old little boy, clumsily making his way down the aisle. This classic choice is one we love, but here are a few others to consider for your big day as well. If the little ring bearer after your heart is a toddler, don’t worry!
