Fabric Love

Damask can be used
ANYWHERE! On the table,
on your dress, on the
invitations, anywhere. Its
classic and can come in a
huge range of colors.

This cake is
truly gorgeous!
Each tier has a
variation in
damask pattern,
I love this concept.

Gorgeous and neat idea for your bridesmaids, either a gift or something that they walk down the aisle with instead of flowers. Ideas like this really will make your guests remember how neat your wedding was.



I love the look of chandeliers, and if you incorporate them in your weddings, what a statement you can make. Check out these GORGEOUS ideas, or you could just put them in your bedroom or bathroom to make it more of a glamorous place for you to sleep and relax!

Once upon a dream...

Yes, every little girl dreams of her wedding day. She will play dress up with her dolls, wear her mother’s veil, and her grandmother’s pearls, hold beautiful fake flowers, and set all her stuffed animals up in rows, as if they were watching a beautiful bride walk down an aisle. Then there are others who would be running in the yard with the boys, climbing on the jungle gym, and pretending to be a nurse for wounded soldiers by using mud to repair “cuts and bruises”.

And then there were the girls who started planning for their prince charming at age 16, holding special items in pretty printed boxes, tearing out magazine clippings, and writing notes and drawings pictures of what the tables will look like at the reception of their weddings. Of course, there were the select few who were more worried about the tennis tournament coming up, or what they were going to wear to the football game that Friday night.

Which girl were you? Do you know exactly what you want on your wedding day?
If anything, you want a perfect day, perfect weather, perfect hair, and the perfect smile for the many cameras that will flash around you. That moment when he sees you begin to walk down the aisle, all in white, all glowing, and he holds back a tear…..Guess what, it will be perfect, perfect for each and every girl of every kind. There is not a perfect wedding, its perfect to you and only you, and that’s the MOST important thing to remember on your wedding day. Everyone there is there for you and your Sweet, they love you and want only the best.

In my blogs, I want to show all brides, what perfect is, and how to love everything about their day even if someone forgets something, or someone comes late, or the cake starts to slide, or the flowers droop a little. This is you and your Sweet’s day and nothing should come between that. YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED! Congratulations, I am sooo thrilled for you, I can’t wait to get started!

I am starting my own planning and design business, and I want to hear what you have to say, and help you in any and every way I can.

Congratualtions your engaged!

He popped the question, and you said yes! Oh wow the ideas and emotions and budget questions are running through your head! Take a moment, breathe in and out, and let things just be for a moment. Then once you come down from the engagement cloud, you can start working. Think about this one thing before you begin....this is the only time you two will be engaged, and the next step is marriage. Enjoy this like you have your relationship, as this is going to be fun!
Start thinking about the look you want? What is "your type" of day. This is pretty much determine where you will have your wedding and reception. Are you all casual, rustic, elegant, fun, exciting, silly, sporty, random, or simple. Think about your first date, something you all enjoyed doing together, a trip you all went on, your favorite foods or places to eat. These little things can help you determine the best places to hold your special day. And then, everything will start falling into place. I just love some of these ideas, I had to share them. I love the details, and the colors. Think of this day as something you not only want to remember but you may want your friends and family to remember as well. I know I still think of a wedding I went to, and tell my friend all the time how wonderful it was. Years ago my friend got married in Wilmington, and she had a 3 hour cruise on the Henrietta with the band "Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts" for all you who may know who that is, their music that night was PG haha! But it was so much fun, different, and unique.
