IB#176: A Duchess moment

 
Helo loves! Another week at the edge of February month. And suprisingly we're almost at the end of 2012 first' quarter! For this inspiration, did you brides, ladies grew up with Jane Austen? She's amongst the famous English romance noveliest during our teenage years. Her romance idealism was adapted into many of her famous novels such as Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, Emma etc. To the fact, hollywood had instill them into movies. Her romance ideas are always filled with the ever-famous English gardens of roses & lavender, the ultimate proper white feminine gowns, the romantic sways and updos and the laces fashionable wear. Basically if you're a fan of hers'- you can incoporate a Jane Austen inspiration. Who would appreciate more than us, having old classic books or antique teacups as your decor to add to the vintage feel?  Certainly we don't have to live in England or have access to an English manor, instead we can be inspired by creating a backyard garden wedding into one fit for a duchess or queen!

Fab Fridays:10 Biggest Prewedding Mistakes in Wedding Planning

 
Hi loves! T.G.I.F! Its good to have Fab friday's back.  So for today's posting - we want to indulge you with the common mistakes most couples to-be's do when planning their wedding. Even the smartest, most on-top-of-things couple can also make mistakes during these crucial times if not planned well from the beginning. Here are the 10 things you should keep an eye on before saying I do.

1. Blowing off your wedding budget.

For the fact we all know it costs a lot of money to throw a wedding. Many times, excited brides start booking vendors and making purchases without having a real budget and then are shocked to discover they've already spent all of their money (or parents' money) and don't yet have half the things they need. Brides to be; take note: if you bounce checks or don't have the money to pay your deposits or make your final payments on the wedding day, your wedding will not happen. Most type vendors such as the band, makeup artiste etc is not going to perform if you don't pay. Planning a wedding is serious business. Make a budget and keep track of your expenditures so you won't be walking naked down the aisle.

2. Messing up the marriage license.

There are so many rules surrounding marriage licenses. For instance, some countries or states require couples to apply their licence 60days before their wedding date and there are places that allows 3 months for the pre-wedding license. So, ensure you find out all the Wedding Registry information on how to obtain your license and make sure you allow time for lastminute emergencies. A common mess-up would be not able to complete all necessary steps to apply for the license therefore cost them to postphone or cancel their wedding!

3. Ordering your wedding dress too late.

Wedding attire is the most vital importance of a wedding. So, if your heart is set on a couture wedding dress, be sure to order that gown by the six-month mark since your dress will mostly likely be customed-made and, there will be many many times, it will need further alteration and fittings. In addition, even most off-the-rack wedding dresses also require alterations (not as much as the custom-made), however make certain that you have enough time to get the gown fitted properly. Never over-estimate your wedding designer or tailor as you should leave plenty of time for shipping and for the fittings. And this is the same goes for the bridesmaid dresses.

{Trend Alert} Pom Pom We heart heart

Hi loves! We loooooves it when there is new trend coming up... and who knew they gona be everlasting for more?,..  I remembered, as i was growing up I wasn't that always a girly girl. My fave colors were blue and my obsession for pink were developed during my college days when i finally learnt how to 'melaram'. That was when i found pink to be completely irresistible... and when this trend emerge, especially in the form of fluffy romantic flowers tucked inside time-worn vintage glass bottles- how one romantic can i not resist?. Like these lovelies (thanks Wedding Occasion) from Dreamy Whites. Arent they so chic?
Awhile ago, our DIY Creatives posted on how to make these lovelies: DIY Pom Poms. We loves how pretty and romantic a few blooms in assorted shapes and sizes of bottles -- so effortless to pull off. Just  imagine how awesome it will look having a lining a long banquet table or grouped together as a centerpieces on classic round tables at a wedding reception. Or lining a mantle in your living room just because you felt like a little something pretty. No matter how you do it, we can never go wrong with pretty pink flowers.

Vintage Weekends: Wedding charmed

When looking at old memories, how ofen we love to see the story of the photographs, whether; the history behind them, their character and charm. Vintage Wedding themes has become so popular nowadays, that many brides love the feeling of instilling classic look in today’s trends that brings unforgettable moments today in many years to come.  They mostly seek something pretty and classic with a nod to both the past and today.
Today, many brides are going for the vintage look in their weddings whether it be tea length dresses, birdcage veils, or other traditional elements. By going through these retro photographs, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some true vintage weddings as well as some more modern ones that were vintage-inspired.

From these pictures, you can see that veils have really evolved from earlier in the 20th century. Maybe the larger veils of the late 80′s and 90′s were inspired by these?
