A Different Kind of Invitation

You see invitations and you see invitations, but these scrolled invitations are a different and stylish way to make that announcement. Supposedly, scrolled invitations are known as Farman - those that were used by Indian Kings. Colorfully designed, crafted with fine gold details, and finished with artistic artwork, these scrolled pieces come beautifully presented in their own box. How's that for sending something guests will keep as a memorable invitation. Find these at

Wedding shoes from Payless

A shoe fetish that can't be ignored. Yes, I shop at Payless now and was surprised to see some nice shoes. And with the economy doing so bad, I thought that these shoes are not bad at all for a wedding. Besides, when you think about buying white shoes to match with a white wedding dress, you gotta ask yourself, if you can still wear that same pair of shoes with other dresses in your closet. I mean do you ever wear your wedding shoes more than once after the wedding itself? Check these out and maybe you won't feel bad just wearing them once - c'mon, they're all under $20 bucks at least:

I'm Seeing Red Weddings

I'm seeing red today! For a gorgeous and bold color scheme, red is just one of those colors that allows you to make a big statement about yourself. It's great when you simply apply a red and white combination because of the striking contrast of the two colors. Superb with gold, too. Enjoy these palettes below from Polyvore.

Fake Wedding Cakes - Trend?

When I first heard about fake wedding cakes, it was actually at a Chinese wedding of my former roommate in college. I kept wondering to myself how come they didn't serve any cake at the wedding. Later on, I asked my friend what happened to the cake. Was it that bad of a cake I asked her? No, it's a rental. Actually, it was made of styrofoam and make to look like a real cake. With that though, I realized that cake rentals are only now beginning to become more noticeable simply because of how many couples want to save on their weddings. And when you considering the current economy, the budget on some weddings just got tighter this year. I guess that makes two things now to rent: the groom' tux and the cake. So, what do you serve instead of cake? Ice cream? Just look at the pictures from and you won't believe that these cakes are not real. Would you ever consider this kind of cake? I don't think I would, but that's just me. I think you can still find cheaper cakes elsewhere even it means having a smaller one. I heard that Costco sells cakes, too. Would you try that?

Donate That Bridesmaid Dress

While reading an article on CNN's iReporter about ugly bridesmaid dresses, somebody commented that it would be a good idea to donate your bridesmaid dress should it be less than attractive for a second-wearing. But, I say, this is not a bad idea at all especially with all the donation programs around the country for prom dresses. In fact, there are many girl around the country who may just adore that bridesmaid dress that you absolutely can't stand. You know what they say: one person's trash may be another person's treasure! Well, I don't think anyone would be mad at you, if you decided to donate that dress. And if it's a dress that actually looks fine, then maybe you might also have the heart to part it for a good cause! Three of the ones that come into mind:

That Beautiful Yellow Dress

My favorite dress color is yellow this summer. J Crew's tank dress just caught my eye and I love this very pretty dress. Because it's so pretty, I thought of matching it up with some really girly-looking accessories.

Enjoy the dress board!

A red wedding color palette

Red is one of those wedding colors that you either love or hate. It's really a color for the bride who seeks to make a bold statement and is not afraid to showcase her style for anything glamorous. While pale colors tend to be more popular, a bright red palette presents a bride with the chance to use romance as a theme or style for the whole event. What I like about red is that it can be matched with a light shade of brown, orange, and even turquoise.
