morning!  i spotted this amazing party idea on One Charming Party and couldn't resist sharing it.  the stunning floral arrangement (which you can create all on your own using these step-by-step instructions) is complete with pink gerbera daisies, dark pink roses, red pixie carnations, orange tulips, yellow ranunculus, yellow mums, kermit poms, bear grass, blue hydrangeas, purple liatris--whew!  what an unbelievably gorgeous collection of flowers.  don't be afraid to use color, ladies, the result can be magical!  check out One Charming Party for all of their colorful creations and creative party ideas.

Carlina and Alejandro had a stylish, funky little ceremony under a giant (fake) bull's head at Toro in Boston's South End. After the ceremony, Margaret and Max of Unusually Fine Photography abducted the pair for a quick shoot in a small park nearby. Carlina couldn't be any cuter: that dress from BCBG is ridiculously adorable. And check out the confetti. Oh, and the food. Alejandro is, after all, a pastry chef in Singapore. . . .

these letterpress bridesmaid invitations from Allie Ruth are so adorable!  i hope all of you brides are going to ask your maids to be a part of your wedding in a sweet way.  remind you best girls how much you love and appreciate them through all your good and tough times, and invite them to join you in your new life as a married woman.  they will cherish it forever.


Say hello to the new English Rose.  Drawing from the inspiration of THE waif/Goth/fairy-tale, designer Sharon Bowen's new English Romantic Collection pieces are stunning, perfect for the bride wanting that storybook quality mixed with cutting edge.  I'd call each one of these looks inspiring for the roguish brides out there . . .
