WTB Hearts: Alternative Blooms

Unique floral arrangements are taking the wedding world by storm; everything from antique brooches to vintage book pages are being used to create a signature style. Alternative Blooms features a wide array of fabric and paper flowers that are equally as eco-chic as they are gorgeous! And best of all, these buds last forever.

Plum Pretty Sugar

As a custom, brides often thank their bridesmaids with a token or gift for all that they have done throughout the journey. What would be better than giving them something that is adorable, unique and cozy while creating stunning photo ops on your wedding day? Cue, Plum Pretty Sugar.

Entrepreneur Charlotte Hale created a line of robes, dressing garments and accessories that are both unique and practical for the bride and her maids on the big day.  If you have been scouring the pages of SMP or Pinterest lately, you will have seen these robes gain in popularity and examples of her stunning pieces.  Plum Pretty Sugar robes come in an assortment of fabrics, lengths and colours and are sure to create a great look for your getting ready apparel.

For J's wedding, she graciously gave us these kimono style robes and all of us were thrilled. We wore them to get ready on her wedding day and they photographed beautifully. Thanks for the great gift J, and man you look stunning in these photos :)

These are perfectly pretty and WTB adores Pretty Plum Sugar.  Check them out!

Yours Truly,

Time Flies....

"Marriage, ultimately, is the practice of becoming passionate friends." - Harville Hendrix

365 days ago we celebrated the union of S and Mr. Y and it will forever be one of the most special days I have shared with friends. Everything was perfect; the setting, the weather, the love. It was a wedding that most girls dream about and it had the warmth that only few have experienced. I cannot believe how quickly the last year has flown by and wish we could rewind and play it all out again. Mazel Tov to S and her hunny and wishing the two of you all the best on your first anniversary together.

Some amazing pictures from S's big day:

Love you both too much for words.

Yours Truly,

This year Vera Wang wow'ed guests in NYC at her runway show previewing her Spring 2013 collection. In past years she has been bold with her color choice of black, nude, and crimson gowns. This year, however, she stuck to the traditional white palette and said she is celebrating the classicism of the wedding gown.  We think she nailed it with this collection and applaud her creativity and elegant designs once again.

See below some stunning gowns highlighted in Vera's upcoming collection:

If only it was socially acceptable to buy wedding dresses for fun :)

We heart Vera Wang.

Until Next Time,
