There are so many talented photographers out there who can capture that magical moment. To me, a magical moment is when the world stands still and everyone and everything is perfectly in their place. What is a magical moment to you?

If you research like we do, you will notice that a lot of designers are using basic fabrics to create texture and intricacy in their designs. Keep in mind that your silhouette can remain extremely simple as long as there are some fun details within the fabric. Details can be achieved by layering, ruffles, pleates, bows, knots, or even fabric flowers. The stiff, blinged out ball gown is out and the textured free flowing gown is IN!

For those of you who are thinking of going au naturale, think about cotton. It’s super soft to the touch and can be used in so many ways. From your wedding gown to your stationary and everything in between, cotton is an extremely durable and multifaceted fiber.

You may be asking yourself is this tacky? Your mom may be cringing at the thought of it and lets not even get started with what your opinionated mother in law may be thinking. The answer is NO actually its not and quite frankly a gift card party is a brilliant idea. Thank goodness wedding “ettiquette” has loosened up and things that were in the past once considered faux paux are now the norm. Lets be real, its a win- win situation for both the recipients and the giver. I cant tell you how many times I have aimlessly wandered around Williams & Sonoma digging through the couples registry to find that everything worthy of giving for a party is already taken. I dont want them to open gifts in front of everyone and I am known as the girl that gave the turkey baster. I know that they registered for this turkey baster but I don’t want them to remember that I was the one that gave them that.. Why couldn’t I have been an early bird and have gotten the cool gift like the quesadilla maker or the mongrammed shams they registered for. Those are memorable gifts and ones to squeal over. I dont want the bride to write me a thank you note for a turkey baster- “everytime I am smothering a turkey with butter I will be reminded of you— NO THANK YOU! A gift card party levels the playing field for procrastinators such as myself! AND for the bride and groom that means NO returns! Whoo hoo! No lugging all the unwanted crap back to the stores to get a store credit. A win-win for all!
