Attention Wedding Fangirls!

So this past weekend I went to the Wedding show of the century! That’s right wedding fangirls, THE WEDLUZE WEDDING SHOW!!

It was absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! I seriously almost cried! It was at the Fairmont Royal York and I was so glad it was there. I have ALWAYS wanted to go in and explore. If you haven’t gone in there before, I strongly suggest you do! It is so so elegant and I am 100% getting married in their ballroom. Right when I got home I told my parents to start saving their pennies because this girl has expensive taste!

Their were so many amazing vendors there, one of which who was looking for an intern (I will keep you posted ;)). Thousands of bakers showed up and naturally I ate A TON of red velvet and macarons! It was my first time trying a macaron and I was pleasantly surprised. For some reason I thought they would be crunchy instead of chewy!

Being there re-ignited my love for weddings and the passion I have for planning them! I am so glad I went and I hope to being going back next year but hopefully with a ring on my finger!

Fancy Fingers

So I was painting my nails the other day and when I went to work, I realized that my nail colour was the exact same as one our bridesmaids colours. It is  super in right now and the colour of the season, Coral. I used Revlon’s nail enamel called “Perfectly Pink” and it looks just like David’s Bridal’s Coral Reef.

I think that it is a great idea for the Bride to paint her nails the same colour as her Bridesmaids dresses. This wouldn’t work for every wedding, it would depend on the style of the day. If it is a more formal wedding, the Bride might want to go with a classic french manicure. But for a fanciful themed wedding, this would definitly work!

I will keep my eye out for other colour matches! Keep posted :)

The Wedding Bell

When a Bride finds her perfect dress at David’s Bridal, we get her to participate in the “Ringing of the Bell” ceremony. She closes her eyes, makes a wish and rings the bell. Kinda cheesy, I know, but a lot of Brides love it!

Church bells would ring to let everybody know that a special event, like a wedding, had taken place. They were said to ward off evil spirits that would try to ruin the newlyweds happiness. From ringing the bells, it was said to bring good luck and fortune to the newly married couple.

Now, the bell is still a popular marriage symbol and is rung to celebrate the couple’s new life together.

Here are some ways to integrate bells into your big day; putting a bell graphic on your invitations or programs, hanging them at the ends of the pews for the ceremony, adding them to your reception centerpieces or hand them out to your guests to ring as you leave the reception onto the honeymoon.
