Yellow + Grey

I'm really loving the yellow and grey color scheme right now. I mean look how elegant and modern it looks! And what a innovative way to change up the table setting...using lamps as a centerpiece. 

I am old fashion in the sense that I like the colors of the invitations to reflect the color scheme of the uniform theme carried throughout. These invitations by KenzieKate and Wedding Paper Divas are perfect!

Jason Wu for Net-A-Porter

High end designer Jason Wu, has decided to take the plunge into the wedding business. Wu, has designed a line exclusively for's wedding boutique that will be available in January.  The dresses will range anywhere from $795-$4,000 which is actually quite reasonable considering some gown can sell upwards of $12,000. Wow. 

 The collection of five ivory looks will range from traditional (a big tulle frock) to contemporary (a short, beaded shift) with a few options in between. Wu is also designing several separates.

Bella Figura

When I was shopping around for wedding invitations, I came across Bella Figura's website and immediately had a full on love affair with their letterpress invites. I mean, how could you not?! They are so elegant, modern, and chic. In saying that, these definitely are not the cheapest way to go but they are pretty beautiful to look at!

Bridal Hair

Those two words "Bridal hair" just sound so out dated and archaic, but it definitely doesn't mean we have to look that way! For many of us ladies, our hair is our security blanket, the thing we obsess about the most and the thing that could make or break our day especially "the big day." Here are stunning some hair styles that might work for you and your wedding day attire....

How intricate and amazing is this?! Done by Angela Lew

Honeymooners Paradise

Since I like to pretend that I am on a perpetual vacation, I wanted to share this romantic sanctuary...If you are the kind of honeymooners that just want to post up at a beautiful place, lay around, look at the ocean and possibly have a couple cocktails (or maybe a few!) the Viceroy Hotel Anguilla is the perfect place! If your not sure where in the world Anguilla is, it is located in the British West Indies. Gorge! 

The interior of the hotel was designed by the amazingly talented Kelly Wearstler and spans over 35 opulent acres. It's a definite must see!

Long Necklace Love

Picking out your jewelry accoutrement to go with your wedding dress isn't always an easy feat. You go through the questions of... Long earrings or studs? Bracelets or No Bracelets? Short Necklace or long Necklace? Hmmmm. 
I love the idea of pairing long necklaces with your wedding amazing and oh so chic! It gives your whole look a causal but elegant vibe and really steers away from the traditional thing to do (which of course I love!).

This stunning bride paired her gorgeous Vera Wang Gown with a mix of gold and pearl necklaces and a large white flower in her hair.

To get her look, here are some fab long necklace picks!

Add some color!

Cupcake or Cake?

Are you a cake or cupcake kind of person? Me, I'm a cupcake girl ALL the way! Having served cupcakes at my own wedding, I can definitely say that it was a great choice. 
I know these days everyone and their mother has a cupcakery, so I have definitely done my fair share of research (aka eating) and can confidently say that my most favorite cupcakes come from (drum-roll please)....

WhoDidily Cupcakes in Montecito, CA!
They are so moist, not overly sweet and the frosting is to die for! 

Everyone's cupcake taste is certainly different so I don't want to build them up too much, but in my opinion they are a must try!

Another good cupcake and sweet treat display comes from Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica, CA.
In L.A. they one of the "go-to" places for weddings and with their creative displays, I am not surprised!

Happy Cupcake shopping!

Dress of the Day!

I love love love this dress! I can definitely vouch for the quality and fit because I myself have tried it on...It is a silk taffeta fabric with the flower detailed belt at the waist, which really accentuates it. If you ladies haven't gone to J. Crew to look at dresses I definitely suggest you do!
