It's always exciting to see the latest in extra-ordinary couture for brides. Here are my personal favorites from the Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 runways!

(NOTE: The photos from LaCour Photography happen to be from a wedding I am very familiar with. The bride and I were among a small group of women who planned their weddings together, on the Internet, nearly corresponding each and every day. And her special day was SPECTACULAR! Even 5 years later, we still keep in close contact. One of our nearest and dearest celebrated a baby shower just yesterday, which we attended and enjoyed wishing her all the best with her baby-boy-due-in-June.)

At first I thought to myself, this post is 100% non-wedding related. However, in so many ways weddings are all about family and since that's what Geni.com is all about, it's sort of relevant.
So far, my family tree has grown to include about 542, whom I am related to either by blood or marriage. It's terrific! If you haven't already, I highly suggest starting your own family tree and inviting as many of your relatives as you can. You are even able to add friends!
You'll surely learn a lot about yourself and your ancestry. And brides, this is a perfect way to officially merge your family with your new hubby's family. Have fun!

My bag generally changes every day or every other day, depending on my mood and my wardrobe. But the contents are usually the same...just transferred from bag to bag as I go along. So, what's in there??? Let's have a look.

My recent involvement/planning/design of a 50th birthday celebration near and dear to my heart has really exposed my love for paper lanterns. They come in all shapes, sizes and colors and are most commonly used to enhance or anchor Asian themed celebrations. Nevertheless, there is no limit to how or when people can use them, especially to enhance tents.
For the special gentleman who's turning 50, I'll be stringing blue and metallic-silver paper lanterns above the outdoor party area and light each with LEDs. Lanterns make it easy to start with any blank canvas and round it all out little by little. Instant ambiance!
Here's a little inspiration:
