I’ve expressed on several occasions that The Nightmare Before Christmas was one of my favorite childhood movies of all time and still is. It’s the day before Halloween so what perfect wedding theme to post other than, The darker side of love…

When it comes to the wedding reception, the word “bar” is usually associated with alcohol and if your reception is going to have any type of bar setting then your guests are happy! However, these days bars can be associated with an array of other delights other than just alcohol.
Brides are in search of that unique touch that makes their big day stand out among the rest. In the world of late night snacks, more and more brides are choosing custom bars for guests to select their goodies from.
Candy bars have been trending for a few years now and are still a hit with brides with a sweet tooth.
This post was inspired by an article I read a few days ago by Huffington Post. It was regarding a bride who intentionally chose hideous bridesmaid dresses for her bridal party in fear that they would “upstage” her on her wedding day.
Do you remember seeing the movie “27 dresses” when Katherine Heigl’s character pulled out 27 of the most hideous bridesmaid dresses ever seen?
Do you think it’s really fair to dress your bridesmaids in ugly dresses? Undoubtedly, you are the bride and you will be the most beautiful woman in the building so why the fear?
That’s not fair!
You should want your bridesmaids to be comfortable. You should want them to enjoy themselves and feel good doing so. Believe me, I’m sure scratch that, I am certain that you do not want to see any scrunched up faces of misery in your wedding pictures.
Would you intentionally dress your bridesmaids in an ugly dress or have you ever been a bridesmaid subjected to wearing a dress that you weren’t too pleased with?

Traditionally, most brides wear garters on their wedding day in preparation for the garter toss, one of the oldest surviving wedding rituals. It relates to the belief that taking an article of the bride’s clothing would bring good luck. As part of this tradition, towards the end of the reception, the groom will remove his new wife’s garter and tosses it to the unmarried male guests. The single guy that catches it is said to be the next to marry.
Historically, this tradition dates back to the 1500s in France and held a more serious meaning such as serving as proof taken by the bridal party that a marriage had been consummated. There was even a point in time where the bride would toss the garter into the crowd of eager men herself but would nearly be “attacked” before she could even throw it! Thankfully, the tradition has evolved over the centuries and today, the privilege of removing the bride’s garter is reserved to the groom only.
Nowadays, most brides use this accessory to tie in the theme or colors of the wedding. Some use it as their “something blue” and some even use it to surprise their new husbands by wearing the colors of their favorite sports team! There are many ways to tie in the garter as a special part of your big day.
Well, it is according to famous bridal gown designer Vera Wang. Wang debuted her Fall 2012 bridal collection last October as part of New York’s bridal fashion week. The collection features a range of black and nude gowns.
What was her inspiration?
Wang expressed that she created black wedding gowns after being inspired by underwear. She says the hue is so “sophisticated”.
The bridal gown designer caused widespread opinion when her collection debuted and although it is non-traditional, Wang hopes that will change as she thinks it’s a chic option.
What do you think of the Fall 2012 black collection? Would you wear a black dress on your wedding day?
Have you ever thought of inviting the Obama’s or Mickey and Minnie Mouse to your wedding?
Well…chances are that they probably won’t show up, but don’t be discouraged. When you send out an invitation inviting the couples to celebrate with you on your big day, within a few weeks or possibly even days you should expect something like this:

How cool is that?!?!
You can send a wedding invitation to The White House and Disney and they’ll send you a little something back as a congrats on your wedding!

What do you expect your guests to wear for your big day? Sometimes it’s best to be specific in your expectations of your guests attire. All guests may not have the same interpretation of what it means to dress casually or semi-formal.
