Newly engaged? Set on buying a new home and moving in before the wedding? Then prepare yourselves for a likely hyper-stressful engagement period that will delight you with visions for the future, at best, yet have you question your sanity, at worst.
But first, congratulations on being members of that tiny minority of couples who can afford to buy a home, move in and organize a big party within a few brief months of each momentous event. While some people will call you rash and crazy, others will understand that you two are madly in love and simply want the perfect start to your new lives as a wedded couple.
We love when our brides share their wedding pictures with us. Julia was beautiful in her Mori Lee wedding dress, KGM Expressions did a great job of capturing every moment of their wedding day! The ceremony and reception took place at Valenzano Winery.
Recently, four fabulous dresses from our boutique were featured in a photo shoot for the Courtyard Marriott City Avenue. You'll love the images from the fun and flirty shoot. Bryant Sanders Photography did a great job of capturing the dresses in action. When you have four models, a guy and guitar...only great things can happen!
Weddings can be tough. In all of the planning process, you’d be forgiven for questions whether the process you’re embarking on is a romantic event or a military operation. For this reason, it’s important to know how to stress-bust from day one, because you can be sure that the responsibilities and ‘what-ifs’ will pile up the closer you get to the big date.
For this reason, our easy wedding stress-busting guide will give you all you need to approach the big day with comfort and stability. If you have trouble, you will be so laid back knowing that you’ve already pre-planned the solution that you’ll have trouble getting worked up over it at all. This is maybe not the total truth, but it’s certainly something to aim at, leaving you more time enraptured with the eyes of the one you hold most dear.
No wedding day is complete without the rings. Most brides and grooms exchange rings as they exchange their vows. It’s a tender moment and one that signifies the commitment of love you’re making to each other. Chances are, neither of you will take those rings off again. Even when your job demands you to be jewelry free, you’ll find a way to keep that symbol of your marriage close to your heart.
When it comes to selecting the rings that you’ll wear for the rest of your lives, you need to consider more than just the color. Here are just a few of the most important details you need to get right together:

A wedding can be the most important day in someone’s life. Since such an important day, you want to make sure everything is perfect especially your wedding dress. Choosing a dress may be difficult, but simple tips will ensure that it is stress-free.
The first thing you need to decide when getting your wedding dress is the basic style that you are interested in. You should start by stating the things your perfect dress must have. If you've always dreamed of a dress with a long train, it's time to remember that. You should also think about things you do not want. If long-sleeved dresses are not for you, make sure you eliminate them now.
Every bride wants an elegant wedding that looks every bit as beautiful as she does. After months of planning, the ceremony and the reception should wow the guests and go as smoothly as possible. But when you’ve made up your mind to theme your wedding, it can be tougher to get everything together. As for a vintage theme? Follow this guide to include all the best traditions for a vintage style wedding:
Congratulations! You’re engaged. You’ve begun thinking about the type of wedding day you’d like to have, all the people you’d like to share the day with, the funky music that a band will be playing live all night long...and, oh my, is that how much everything costs? In the States, the average wedding costs around $36,000. If you’re looking at that figure and thinking, ‘well, guess we’re not getting married,' then fear not: because you can still have an awesome day, and it won’t have to cost anywhere close to the figure mentioned above. All it takes is a few simple cost-cutting measures.
Your wedding day is a happy day for you and your fiance. Sounds obvious? It is! It’s just important to remember that important fact when you become enveloped by the enormous and stressful process of planning your wedding. It’s vitally important throughout to keep some perspective and remember your love for each other as the reason you’re making this commitment to each other. Because, let’s face it, the 21st century wedding is a logistically fraught affair that borders on being a military operation. With an average price tag of over $30,000 and a small army of professionals involved from jewelers to caterers, it’s no wonder many couples find the prospect of wedding planning somewhat daunting.
Weddings are full of traditions. Some of them have been around for hundreds of years, but many aren't as old as you might think. For example, wearing a white dress and having a diamond engagement ring are only really a few decades old. When you're planning your wedding, there might be some traditions you want to follow. However, if you want to make your wedding your own, there are plenty of ways to play around with these traditions too. Try some of these wedding traditions to make your own for a unique experience.
