Romance is in the air

as i wait patiently for spring to fully be here!

Hand & Feet Henna Art



this has always been really beautiful to me. I once heard from a friend of mine who did this for a living for brides that she would put the initials of the husband to be inside the henna art and if she, the bride found them, then it was a match that would last forever. If this is true or not who knows but it's it sweet to think!

OMG MAKEUP

So every girl wears at least a little make -up on her wedding day. I have been looking at pictures to try and get an idea of what I like and I have to say not to much make-up is truly my favorite.. Although I have been kinda obsessed with these brands as of late. Might have something to do with the beauty trend report I just did for work.



i kid you not this lip gloss from Lipstick Queen is so awesome, i can hardly believe it is on my lips. plus huge bonus, it doesn't feel all greasy and defiantly does not dry out your lips. i have to stop myself from putting it on all the time!




OK if Kate Moss can wear Jemma Kids eyeliner why can't I? Her line of make called make-up school is super fantastic, even for a tomboy like me. Beside she sells some of it at my favorite store Target.

mini cakes and pink



this is my inspiration for the day! the roaring 20's are one of my favorite times in the way of outfits and it has inspired the creation of a bridesmaids dress. I can't stop thinking about mini cakes lately either. Maybe it is spring kicking into my appetite telling me i want sugar.. who knows but i am really thinking about having cakes like this at my bridal luncheon. the photo below is just a total favorite! can we please get pampered like this all the time!

Mrs. Quilici

This is a photo of Jameson's grandmother on her wedding day. How lovely is she!

Adriennes NYC

I am totally so honored to have my gorgeous pal Gina not only make my dress for the big day but blog about my blog !! ha ha . She is the most talented, patience, and easy going person i have yet to come across living in NYC. This makes a huge difference when shopping for a wedding dress and her shop is the bees knees for every thing a gal might be looking for in the way of wedding dresses, cocktail dresses, bridesmaids, mother of the bride, flower girls and so on. Check out her blog and shop here! You can also steal a few glances at her totally awesome ready to wear line!

Bridal Luncheon

I have always loved tea and the thought of having a tea party for my bridal shower was even better. I decided to change the name from shower to luncheon so it would feel a bit more special and really exude the idea of a sweet afternoon lunch with my favorite ladies.
Apparently i am not alone in thinking this as Martha Stewart just came up with bridal tea showers!

Located at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ, this sculpture replicates Pierre-Auguste Renoir's painting, The Luncheon of the Boating Party (1881).

Invitations amour


we are still trying to come up with an invitation we both like that is not to over the top and not to D.I.Y. looking. I came across these and thought they looked very sweet!

Bridal Survival Kits


i forget everything so these little bags would defiantly come in handy!

Bridal Luncheon

These are so lovely. I was trying to think of something really awesome to give to my ladies at the bridal luncheon, and i think this just takes the cake! Who doesn't like a nice bar soap. Idea from Layer Cake.
