Eva et Tony's Parisian Invite

I know, I know ... I'm waaay late ... but I just came across Eva Longoria and Tony Parker's wedding invitation. Needless to say, I was blown away! It was gorgeous!!
The one thing I was not surprised about was the invitationer, none other than Lehr & Black (designers of custom invitations and event decor for over 25 years).

Planning A Wedding...A Mental Challenge?

Funny, I had not come across this wedding commercial until now.

Planning a wedding can definitely be a mental challenge, just make sure you have more than a good stationer to get you by. (wink)

What's On Your Registry? (2nd Edition)

I always LOVE posting about the latest and greatest in wedding registry items. Sometimes registering for wedding gifts can be confusing and stressful, but at the same time it's easy to have fun while hand-picking many of the items you'll receive for your wedding. Just remember to make it count. Do your research and take your time.

Here are a few registry picks to consider:

Cuisinart Grind & Brew Thermal 10-Cup Automatic CoffeemakerThe Cuisinart Grind & Brew is what many call "an elegantly designed coffeemaker." This machine automatically grinds whole beans before brewing, so every cup is fresh and rich. And one of it's other great features is that the timer can be set up to 24 hours ahead, so you can wake up to a fresh pot.

Calphalon Panini Grill with Press

Panini's are all the rage these days and Calphalon has made it easy to grill sandwiches and juicy burgers. The cast iron pan features a ridged bottom that brings all the benefits of outdoor grilling to your stovetop, while the heavyweight press facilitates contact with the grill for amazingly even results.

Discovery Bone China from Target

This affordable and lovely ensemble is available at Target! Each 5-pc. place setting includes a salad plate, dinner plate, rimmed soup bowl, cup and saucer. A serving set is also available, featuring the matching teapot, sugar bowl, creamer, serving platter and serving bowl.

PotteryBarn Wall Monogram

PotteryBarn's easy-to-apply monogram adds a unique touch to any room. Choose a single initial or three-letter monogram. Each is made of thin matte vinyl with a light adhesive for firm placement and easy removal.

Cuisinart Wine CellarAnother favorite from Cuisinart! This "wine cellar" is configured to provide attractive storage for 12 standard bottles of wine while maintaining them at their ideal storage temperature. Plus, it's compact enough for use on a bar or kitchen countertop. A snazzy gift indeed.

Shoes: Off-White

Evolving fashions and the quest to be different has opened the door to exploring alternatives to white for bridal accessories. As we've frequently seen flowergirl dresses go more to the left, the same can be said for none other than SHOES!

Who says your shoes have to be dyed to match your gown? Who says they even have to be close to white or beige? Here are a few options for maximizing the photographer's famous "shoes peeking from under the gown" shot.
