A Most Important Job…

Amongst all the stress of planning your wedding day, you have two very important members of your bridal party just itching to sprint down the aisle. Keep in mind the flowergirl and ringbearers have a very important job in your wedding day: the keeper of the “rings” and to make way for the bride by use of flower petals.

This precious flower girl dress has a floor length skirt of lace and pleated organza ruffles. Many bridal gowns have the same features and now we’ve got the flower girl dress to match! As always, the ribbon sash can be ordered in a variety of colors. Swing by to take a closer look at it! Premier Bride's Perfcet Dress

Your flower girl will no doubt be adorable, so consider her dressing the part. Try to find a mini dress to accompany yours, or have one made. It’s always adorable to see the bride and flowergirl in their matching attire. You might consider giving her an unconventional bag instead of the basket that is a more traditonal option.

The ringbearer always looks daper in his mini tuxedo, just make sure he matches the groom to a tee. If the groom has suspenders, have the ringbearer get them too. A little fedora hat also goes a long way. You can certainly still use a pillow with fake rings, but consider something a little more updated like the ringbearer carrying a sign saying “Here comes the bride!” This is really sweet and can be used for great pictures.

 We have so much fun when the adorable Flower Girl dresses start to arrive. They’re just so cute! This is a new arrival from Jordan, shown in White and Light Pink. It has a satin bodice with a keyhole back and satin waistband. The tulle tutu skirt also has contrasting accents along the edge. This dress is available in any combination of 2 of the 75 colors Jordan offers. Lots of options with this one! http://www.fresnobridalsalon.com/

Your guests want to see the adorable ringbearer and flowergirls antics, so be ready for the comedy hour. Make sure that you put their parents in strategic places in the seating, so that if they do get a little rowdy, they can get them quickly.

about forage bow ties

designers: stephen loidolt & shauna alterio

Sa&slforage

They met in a kissing booth at an art school carnival. after graduating from cranbrook academy with MFAs in sculpture and printmaking, and began collaborating by making gifts for friends. over time their creative partnership has developed into multiple projects including: something’s hiding in here, the original mustache on a stick, seed house stationers, and forage haberdashery.

Their very first bow ties were made in the summer of 2010. the name FORAGE comes from our love of hunting for vintage and deadstock fabrics, which keeps their creative process fresh. each collection is hand crafted in limited numbers using cotton fabrics. their packaging is made in the US with recycled materials and hand printed by them.

Premier Bride Showplace Tips

You may find that the more time you can save in planning your wedding, the better. Our bridal show can be the one stop shopping experience you need to plan your entire wedding, especially if you go prepared. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of Premier Bride Showplace:

598041

  • Plan In Advance – Make a list of what you will need most and what your budget will allow for each item and service. Be sure to leave some room for the unexpected – you never know when you may see something you’ll want to have that you never thought of.
  • Be Ready To Make Decisions – Bring the major decision-makers to Premier Bride Showplace with you. If you are the major decision-maker, bring someone with you that you can bounce ideas off of. Be ready to book your favorite vendors there at the show. Some exhibitors may even offer day-of-show booking discounts.
  • Dress For The Occasion – Remember to wear comfortable shoes. Need we explain more on this one?
  • Fashion Forward – Bring a notepad with you to jot down any dresses or tuxes you like during the fashion show. It will be much easier for you to remember which Bridal Salon featured the gowns you like. You’ll also want to be able to take notes when attending the seminars.
  • Above all, have fun! Bridal shows may be useful and informative, but they’re also a blast. You’ll have a great time with your family and friends – planning your perfect day!

12 wedding planning tips: Tip 6 – Wedding theme

Sharing this post from Vintage by Ethel & Pearl:

Choosing a theme for your wedding can be a really helpful way of pulling your styling elements together. A theme can be as simple as one or two choice colors or a theme which runs through every element, e.g. Pop Art. A theme can be broad, e.g. Literary Greats, or specific, e.g. The Great Gatsby. Sometimes a theme emerges from one simple item like a pair of gorgeous bright blue shoes or a grandmother’s brooch that you want to incorporate into your outfit on the day.

A theme may be so subtle the guests are not even aware there is a theme threading the details together, yet it helps you select complementary elements to make for a beautiful and well styled event.

Featured Vendor – Mariano Friginal Photography

I can’t say this any other way — I love shooting weddings. It thrills me to think that I get to capture some of the most important moments in people’s lives. Weddings give me the unique opportunity to creatively capture the love story of each couple that I photograph. If you would like to talk to me about photographing your wedding, all you need to do is call the studio or send me a note using the form below.

A Note From The Artist

When I first started photographing weddings, I thought to myself, “it can’t get any better than this.” I mean, I loved what I was doing, the atmosphere inspired me to create art, and all my couples were super awesome to work with. Now, I find myself saying the same thing over and over again after each wedding, family portrait, senior session, and photography workshop. My wife and I feel that we’ve been so greatly blessed by God with the families that I get to work with. Thank you all for expressing your appreciation of my work. I’m at a loss for words in expressing my gratitude, but it’s appropriate to repeat — Thank you!
