Express Yourself With Fun Finishing Touches

Most women spend their entire life being overly critical of their figure, hair, skin and obsessing for decades over every detail of their appearance. When it comes to their wedding day, it gets even worse. The gown must be perfect, not to mention the veil, hair, makeup, manicure, pedicure, shoes, jewelry, etc. What some women forget in the entire process of trying to be perfect is how important it is to be yourself.  Don’t try to be someone that you are not, don’t try to please everyone and lose sight of who you really are. Most of all, you should be having fun.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t wear a bright red or pink petticoat under your bridal gown. In fact, this might be the time to find matching shoes.







Although there are some who might say parasols are outdated and old fashioned, I think they do the trick nicely to keep the sun out of your eyes. They also add a touch of whimsy to photos!









When it comes to the reception table settings, some people just are not happy with the traditional white. Incorporating the wedding colors into the dinnerware will jazz up any table and these square green dessert plates serve up the corresponding cake quite deliciously. Did I mention they are square?




 If you are going full Retro for your wedding, why not complete the theme with a full service Milk Shake Bar in lieu of a Sweet Table?


 As I always say, this is your wedding. It is your time to express yourself and do something truly unique and fun. With any luck, you might just set the next new trend!
