The Last Hoorah

Well this blogging experience has been a interesting. I wish I had done better on my blog and put more effort into it but I am a procrastinator so of course now I am regretting.

When blogging I really only uses pinterest and then twitter would send tweets when I updated my blog but I am pretty sure no one looked at it. My blog theme was kind of lames laugh out loud! I did it on weddings and not every thinks about that at the age of 22 so I am not sure. If things had been different I would have put more effort into it and really tried pushing it out there.

Maybe when I get my job after graduation I could help promote the company by blogging things the company does and after all this I can say I was blogger. I would try harder in make sure it was better presentable and that my posts were better organized and my pictures were more presentable. I really did like this assignment but I procrastinated way to much on it and now it is way to late. Hopefully next time I can do better.

I would also love to be married in a beautiful villa or chateau and have my reception there as well. I am not sure where but my wedding is still years away. It would be lovely to have my wedding in Paris, France so since this is my dream wedding we will say that is my location (LOL). I would also give my bridesmaids personalized button down shirts to get dressed in and their jewelry for the wedding. My groomsmen would get king ranch pocket knifes with their names engraved. I would wear louboutin shoes and have Cartier jewelry. I would give my soon to me husband a Rolex as a gift before the wedding and hopefully receive something just as nice from him.

Of course though its all just a dream.

What is your dream wedding?!

Tips on saving money

When planning your wedding your biggest concern is staying under or right at your budget limit. So the first tip I suggest is that you only invite the people that you actually want there and not all these distant relatives that you have not talked to or friends you have not talked to in years. Second try to do some of the little things on your own. Like for example the little decoration; table cloths, place settings, center pieces (depending on what kind you want), etc. Third try to get a 2 for 1 on the photographer if you want a videographer as well. Also when picking your flowers get a variety of them an not just the same ones to save on money.

Here is some links to look at:

Gifts for your grooms mens and bridesmaid

Here is just a short slide show of different gift ideas you could give to your grooms men and bridesmaids. Nothing fancy just gifts to show appreciation for them being in your wedding and putting up with whatever they had to endure.

My App

So the App I would design would help keep track what you have already planned and help keep track of your budget.

This would be the opening screen. As you can see you just three tabs. The twitter one would be for you to share whatever you have planned and to keep your guest posted on what is going on if you would like too. Other then that the Wedding Planning tab lets you add what you have already accomplished and shows you what your still lacking. The budget app lets you keep track of what you spent on each item and if you have gone over budget or are under budget.

Here is the example of what the budget tab looks like. If it were real you would be able enter to enter the amount you have spent on each item and it would give you the total. Then under the total it would tell you your budget and if you were over or under.

If the app was real I am sure brides would use it because of how handy it is to use. It is convenient and easy to use.

Table settings!

When you have a wedding and are planning it the most important thing that your wedding planner will tell you is that the table setting is important because when guests walk in the first thing they see is the tables and if they decorated beautifully or not. I know not everyone thinks that is important but still its the thought that counts. So here are a few gorgeous ideas to use when picking a table setting.

As you can see they are a variety of colors and style. From the colors, flowers, themes they might go too, plate setting, center pieces, etc. Your table setting all depends on your theme and how extravagant you want your wedding. Hope you enjoy!

Wedding Dresses Galore

All little girls dream of that perfect wedding dress. When going to weddings as a little girl I remember being mesmerized by the bride and her dress. The dress makes the wedding. All eyes at the wedding are on the DRESS and bride. They are the center of attention. Some of my favorite designers in my personal opinion are:

  • Pnina Tornai
  • Vera Wang
  • Eli Saab
  • JLM Couture
  • Alfred Angelo
  • Lazaro

Pnina Tornai is a pricey designer but oh my gosh are her dresses gorgeous. They range from $5,000 and up.

Rings! On Rings! On Rings!

“Diamonds are a girls best friend”

-Marilyn Monroe

When being with that special someone for so long you start thinking about marriage and with marriage comes that beautiful engagement ring that ever little girl dreams about getting when that beautiful day happens. Your true loves finally pops that question that you have been waiting to hear for the past 5 years “Will you marry me?”.

So with that I figured I could discuss engagement rings. There are many different types of cuts and settings but the most gorgeous of all in my opinion is the cushion cut with a halo pave setting.
