Bridesmaids By My Side

My fiance and I are truly blessed to have such wonderful family and friends in our lives and are very excited to have many of them be a part of our bridal party.  Being surrounded by those closest to John and I will make the wedding that much more special!

When asking friends and family to be my bridesmaids, I wanted to make the experience special so I sent each of them a personalized card.

Whether it is a personalized card, a special piece of jewelry, or a unique frame to display a picture of you and your bridesmaids, your girls will love the personal touch and its something they can hold on to for years to come!

Regardless of whether or not the groom will wear them again, cufflinks are an accessory totally worth investing in for the big day.  Rather than the traditional silver or gold cufflinks, why not select something that truly reflects personality and interests such as a favorite sports team or movie, or better yet personalize them with the wedding date and names of the bride and groom.  The possibilities are endless, many of which will not break the bank.

Ring Bowl

A fabulous spin on the classic ring bearer pillow - a ring bowl.  This beautiful peice created by Paloma's Nest can be personalized with couples' names, a phrase from their vows or the wedding date.  Unlike a pillow, this is something you can continue to cherish and display for years.

The First Dance

Oh, the first dance as Mr. & Mrs.  What a magical moment for all newlyweds, I know I'm looking forward to mine!  So why not spotlight this special moment in the begining of the reception?  When the formal announcement is made to welcome the bride and groom, go right into the first dance rather than waiting until after dinner when you are less likely to have everyone's attention.  Plus, I think it would be a neat way to lead into thanking your guests for being a part of your special day.
