Give Sometime Blue

One of thee best gifts a bride-2-be can score is an “Emergency kit” containing travel size must-haves and the folks at (Classy Bride) have thought of everything a girl could need!

Undoubtedly someone will ask for a lint brush, deodorant, bandages, emery board, Q-tips, a needle, or hair spray among other quick fixes for such an important event. “While you hope & pray such emergencies won’t crop up, ...they do and being prepared will ssssssh the BRIDE.”

Seriously, by having this nearby you can remedy any mishaps and your friends will love you for life. ¬†On a day of jitters its crucial to be organized, this babe houses’ 3 smaller bags within the candy stripper cosmetic zipper pouch.

For $56.00, the Bride and her entourage can have a peace of mind, knowing that every little detail has been thought of, from the rooter to the tooter.

So the next time you get a SAVE-THE-DATE Bridal Shower invitation, google (Classy Bride Emergency Kits), it’s truly the perfect bridal gift to give, and yes…“it’s something blue!”

Ultimate Decor for a Wedding Reception

As some of you might know I’m getting married this summer at the Peninsula Golf & Country Club in San Mateo, CA.

I’d like the decor to make a big and accurate statement about our style, however I am not much of a flower person. I’d like the decor to consist of some white and ivory field flowers as well as plenty of potted succulents (that I get to keep forever!), as well as LOTS of candles. I try to sum the look and feel up as vintage, natural and earthy. Lace and dolies will also be another huge element to tie the looks together.

Here are my current inspirations:

Centerpieces made of Vintage Lace

Since getting engaged on 11/13/10 I’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of wedding decor ideas I’ve found online. I made my August wedding a little difficult to plan when I decided on colors indigo (really navy, indigo just sounds so much cooler), ivory, cappuccino and small hints of gold. I was dreaming of a Fall – Late Fall wedding and that’s where my dark color story came from.

Finding table decor accents in ivory, cappuccino and gold has proven to be a pretty simple task. Though I’ve learned that there aren’t many accents that come in indigo. Flowers don’t naturally bloom in this color, and it’s difficult to find indigo vases or candles. Luckily I decided to put my three bridesmaids in indigo, they will be the major contribution to the indigo of my color story.

I’ve researched ways to make the dark colors of my wedding seem lighter and less dramatic. I’ve found a couple of ideas worth sharing. Sewing a trail of vintage lace ivory dollies together adds a bit of whimsy to the table, even when a table is fairly bare (although I doubt my tables will be bare). Cake platters filled with lace swatches make for an unusual centerpiece or accent at the place card table. Lastly, covering clear glass bowls with lace add a nice touch of creativity.

On the Market for a Wedding Dress

I’m getting married sometime next Summer-Fall and have begun my hunt for the perfect dress. I find myself in an unusual situation; I have a tattoo on my bicep that I’m interested in covering with a ‘sleeved’ wedding dress. From the research I’ve done within the last week, I’m finding that hardly any designers design dresses with sleeves. I don’t blame the designers, I assume not that many dresses with sleeves actually sell.

I find Jenny Packham and Temperly London sell some remarkable dresses, however, they don’t sell many designs in the Bay Area. And I don’t really feel like that girl who needs to fly around the country looking for a dress, that just seems impractical.

These are the styles I’m looking for.


I’m absolutely in love with the dress on the left, it’s the flowy sophistication that I’m looking for. The dress to the right isn’t bad, with the ballerina wrap shawl over it, however this look isn’t my favorite.

Pictured above are Temperly London dresses, I love all three of these styles. I think the one pictured left is most like what I’m looking for.

If anyone knows of local Bay Area wedding dress designers, please let me know. I’m interested in making a custom version of one of these styles.
