Gone are the days where a bride’s only choice for her ‘something blue’ was a garter. Today, women are finding so many unique ways to incorporate this color into their bridal emsembles. Blue heels are one way to add a bold pop of color to your attire while still keeping with tradition. Why not fashion yourself in a pair?
Above is a roundup of my favorite picks from around the web. I can’t decide which I love more, the sparkling Louboutins (top left) or the gorgeous Gucci rhinestone peeptoe pumps (bottom right). More importantly I’m dying to know… which is your favorite?
Row 1 (l to r) Christian Louboutin, Paris Hilton, Paris Hilton
Row 2 (l to r) Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Bradgley Mischka
Row 3 (l to r) Christian Louboutin, Ivanka Trump, Loriblu
Row 4 (l to r) Jessica Simpson, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci
The last two days in Boston have been absolutely gorgeous… perfect temperature and lots of sunshine! After a long snowy winter, I’m SO excited for summer which officially starts today! On that note, I thought it would be fun to pull together some of my favorite seasonal bouquets to inspire all of you soon-to-be summer brides.
Think bright bold blooms tied with colorful ribbon or raffia. Centerpieces in fruit cans and mason jars. Or keep it simple with just one type of bloom hand-tied with textured ribbon in soft earth tones.
Lastly, play with a variety of colors combining bold hues with softer tones and even white to create unique and interesting compositions. This season is all about having fun with your flowers!
Happy first day of summer!!!

This sweet engagement was captured by fab west coast photog Kaysha Weiner. I love how the couple included Victoria’s daughter in their shoot. So sweet.
“When Victoria initially contacted me, I melted when I saw this in my inbox: ‘my fiance is marrying me and my 3 year old daughter and I was thinking that it might be fun to have her in some of the pictures.‘ I loved the idea of including her daughter, and making the shoot not just about the couple, but the family!”
Congrats Victoria + Yaron you two are totally adorable and your little family is even cuter! A special thanks to Kaysha Weiner for sharing this super sweet engagement with us today! Make sure to check out her blog for a peek at all of her pretty photographs.
