Trends Catching Our Attention

July 12th, 2012

We love poring over gorgeous wedding details and we just could not wait to share our favorite trends with all you future brides!

We are BIG fans of signature cocktails!  With the heat wave taking over Virginia this summer we can’t think of better way to treat your guests than with a Popsicle cocktail. This lovely little cocktail is super simple and budget friendly. All you need is a pretty glass, garnished with a Popsicle and prosecco or sparkling wine poured over the top.

Tired of the same old, same old disposable cameras at each wedding table? Well allow us to introduce you to the App taking over the wedding world, Wedding Snap. This photo-sharing App is all the rage and is making its rounds on the wedding blogs from Wedding Chicks to The Knot and even Martha has jumped on the bandwagon. With several different packages available there is something to fit everyone’s budget. All your guests have to do is download the App, enter your album code and start snapping photos. All photos are shared with everyone who attends the wedding and is great way to see your wedding from your guests’ perspective.

Sometimes brides forget the gorgeous images that can be captured while they get ready along with their bridesmaids and flower girls. We think you should feel pretty even before you slip on your gorgeous gown so why not get ready in style in these beautiful silk robes by Plum Pretty Sugar! With the robes made in an array of patterns and colors as well as sizes available for your littlest flower girl to your bridesmaids. These would make perfect thank you gifts for the ladies of your bridal party.
