Trendy Thursday {Live Music}

For the bride and groom who love to get down on the dance floor, consider featuring a live band at your reception! Not only will your guests be “wowed,” but the bandleader can act as your master-of-ceremonies and interact with guests. Plus, who doesn’t love a live performance!?

Tuesday Tips {Peplum}

For those of you who are unfamiliar with peplum style attire – it’s basically a short {semi-ruffly} over-skirt attached to a fitted jacket, skirt, or dress. Peplum is perfect for accentuating the waist line and really creating a feminine hour-glass figure =) Not only is it a great option for bridesmaids, but we’re seeing it pop up in wedding gowns too!

If you’re on the hunt for a peplum style dress, keep in mind that they come in many “shapes & sizes.” Be it oversized and asymmetrical, sleek and simple, or cropped and airy! Some gowns may be more structured while some a bit more flowy, so keep your body shape and fashion style in mind when trying on these dresses.

Trendy Thursday { Scentscapes }

This may sound totally random, but if you’ve ever been to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, you know how amazing the bakery on main street smells =) Did you know that they actually pipe those sweet scents out to Main Street? We love the idea of incorporating this type of “scentscape” into weddings! Try adding some simple lavender floral arrangements at the ceremony {super relaxing} and something a bit more vibrant for the reception {papaya and tangerine are great choices}. You can even send out scented invites!

Tidbits and Tips {Bridal Sashes}

A sash can be a stunning accessory to a bridal gown {plus they accentuate your waistline} no matter your body type. The possibilities to a sash are endless – whether is simple and elegant, or covered in sparkles! They’re also perfect if you want to add a little pop of color to a white or ivory gown =)
