Congratulations!

 

If I could eat, live and breathe weddings 24/7 I would.  Who am I kidding... I already do!!  My passion and drive for beautifully planned events comes from the smiles on my clients' faces when they see their vision come together.  It comes from the groom seeing his beautiful bride walking towards him.  It comes from the bride's father getting the first of his daughter looking all grown up in her white wedding dress.  It comes from catching a glimpse of the couple sneaking an intimate moment at the head table ... the groom gently kissing his bride's shoulder.. oh the butterflies I get!

Your Day and Their Day

Have your parents been there for most of the wedding planning? Have they been there for the cake-tastings, finding the 'perfect' dress, and everything else under the moon? Even though all of this planning puts the "thank-you's" under the rug most of the time, here are a few suggestions to show your parents that you really do appreciate their love and support.

 

Gifts for parents of the bride and groom normally don't get a whole lot of attention until close to the end of the wedding planning, which makes it hard to show your appreciation for the people who helped you get to be the person you are today. Spread the love with some of these ideas on how to get that message across!


A great idea to show that you care is by getting a few handkerchiefs stitched with a meaningful message to your loving parents. These simple words will bring tears to their eyes and also be very useful when it does!

  

Old Photos of you as a child with your parents is also another great idea to tug at their heartstrings and remind them that you will always be their special little someone even if they think you're growing up too fast.

 

Pendants and necklaces that capture the meaning of 'forever' will help your parents feel like you will always be with them no matter how far away you may be. No matter the distance, a parent will always be a parent and a child will always be their child.

  

Lastly, a great idea for the actual wedding day is to get something engraved for them to wear on your special day so they feel like they are just as much included in the whole process as you are. Remember, this day is just as special to them as it is to you!

 

Until Next Time, 

Charlotte

Afzia's Favorite Things!

Happy Friday everyone!

The one thing that I absolutely love to give and receive are..... surprises!

Whatever shape or form they may come in... a small pretty box, a thoughtful gesture or a something on a grander scale, it's always nice to be the one on the giving and receiving end of that.  It's good exercise for the heart strings!


From young to old alike, between friends and family or husband and wife  ...just a little gesture can put a huge smile on someone's face.  It can be as simple as being creative with your kids' lunches!


There doesn't have to be a specific date marked in a calendar to show kindness or love.  

Make it a part of your everyday life to show others how much you care with a little surprise!

 

 Happy Love Day everyone!!!

Until next time!

XO

“Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” ~ Choosing your Bridal Party!

Looking for a creative way to ask you darling friends to be a part of your special day? Here are a few ideas to spark that creative imagination so you can create the perfect gift for your girls.

 

Just for Me !!!???

First things first… be personal with your gifts!  There is nothing nicer than when a friend smiles because you know them better than they thought.   A few ways to personalize your invitations for your soon-to-be bridesmaids is to embed their name into it! 

    

Simple and affordable ideas such as wine bottles or mugs with personalized “name” labels are a fun way to ask them and be sure to get them even more excited about your special day than they already are!  You can even add the wedding date!

Surprise!

Another beautiful and creative way to personalize your bridesmaid invitations is by getting crafty and creating lovely boxes or clutches with small gifts inside that are personal to each of your lovely bridesmaids!  It will really show you love them!

  

Secondly, make sure your gifts are also tied into your colour scheme of your wedding to help your bridesmaids get a feel of the theme of your celebration.   A beautiful example is by putting a flower of the same colour arrangement as your theme. This ties everything in simply and looks elegant all at the same time!  Not only do you want to make these invitations personal and match your vision for your special day but you also want it be something that they can use or wear. This makes your bridesmaid feel more involved in the wedding which makes for a very happy wedding party!

  

More great ideas are bracelets and necklaces that signify your friendship and show that you’ve gone above and beyond to have them by your side on the day that matters most.

    

At the end of the day, your bridesmaids are going to love being a part of your celebration regardless, but why not make the wedding planning a little more fun and exciting for everyone involved!  Let your creative juices flow and let your gifts symbolize a small part of your friendship with all of these wonderful girls!

Until next time…
