Earlier today, I came across a cute little cake creating tool hosted by Brides.com. It's called CREATE-A-CAKE!
Brides-to-be are able to choose from a variety of colors, decorations, accents and even toppers. Once done, print the finished design and take it with you to your baker. Great for brainstorming ideas and lots of fun.
Try it now!
For some, spending $7,000+ on a handmade, couture wedding gown to be worn only once is no big deal. For others, a more practical approach may be desired or necessary depending on the chosen budget. It really depends on the bride and what she ultimately wants.
Since we've already highlighted numerous high-end gowns, here are a few gorgeous choices for $1000 or less.
... and even though it's more than $1000, here's one more J. Crew style, just because it's so feminine and unique (wink).
While catching up on my blog-reading, I noticed a really fun post over at Danielle Gregory's Oh Happy Blog! Danielle has great ideas and finds, of which I've been quite intrigued. And today, I've decided to borrow this cute little quiz.

As soon as I came across OfficeMax's Elf Yourself, I just couldn't resist! I had to join in the fun. So, from my family to yours, here's to a good chuckle all the way from Central New Jersey ... courtesy myself and hubby, Keith.

Understandably, people often judge venues and locations by their bathrooms. When hosting a wedding ceremony and/or wedding reception, remember to always place emergency toiletries in each bathroom. But, consider further transforming an ordinary ladies' or men's room into a true restroom with impressive little touches ... vases of fresh flowers, scented sachets, chocolate truffles, or maybe even these:
Non-wedding related for the most part, but really cute! A replica of Charlie Brown's classic pathetic Christmas tree.
One of my colleagues sat his up on his desk and, boy does it turn heads. The set, from Urban Outfitters, comes with one red ball ornament, and bendable branches that make it possible to fold the tree entirely flat for easy storage during non-yuletide times of the year.
Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!!!

I was married 3 1/2 years ago and had a BLAST planning my wedding. It was July 17 ... a balmy, vibrant Saturday afternoon ceremony splashed with hues of celadon and pink ... followed by dancing the night away, under the stars, in "Toni Child's Romona Keveza." I LOVED my wedding! But, what if I could do it all over again??? Hmmmm. I think I'd try this:
I saw this great article in the Fall/Winter 2007 edition of Brides New Jersey and had to post. Over the years, I've come to find that most non-married people really have no idea what type of wedding they can or can not afford upon becoming engaged. This article serves as a pretty good eye-opener to what married-couples-to-be are in store for ... in the tri-state area, especially New Jersey.
The idea of the groom's cake began as a Southern tradition and lately, has become more and more popular at weddings. These days, the groom's cake could be any reflection of his hobbies, favorite sport, alma mater or even his profession. Some groom's cakes are served at the rehearsal dinner, however, most times this alternative confection accompanies the wedding cake itself.
So here's to giving your sports enthusiast, wine expert, cigar connoisseur, billiards addict, hip-hop junkie, soon-t0-be-ball-and-chain a little piece of the spotlight. Take note of these fabulous ideas that'll make your groom's cake the talk of your wedding!
Like thousands of people, I record The Oprah Show everyday on our DVR. And no matter what, this time every year, I look most forward to the Oprah's Favorite Things show. To my surprise, today was the day!
Apparently, most of Oprah's ratings come from Macon, Georgia and as a "thank you" to the residents, the show was filmed in Macon in front of an audience of gracious locals. So Nice!
Here's the 2007 rundown, just in time for the start of holiday shopping.
