A Designer Wedding Gown Without the Designer Price Tag

This week for Wedding Gown Wednesday we are doing something different.  We are featuring a designer wedding dress at an unbeatable price. This stunning Ariette Wedding Dress is designed by Project Runway star Austin Scarlett. It’s part of the Kenneth Pool Collection for Amsale.  Why it is feature worthy is because the original price was $5,900 and it’s listed on BravoBride for $1900!  How is this possible?  It is a pre-owned dress that was purchased in 2010, but has never been worn or altered and still brand new in bag. The detailing on this dress is impeccable and features a beautiful beaded scoop neck with gorgeous button details on the back down to the train. So, if you are a size 6, then this is your chance to own a designer wedding dress without a designer price tag.

Carlsbad Flower Fields Wedding Venue

Spring is here, so we have an exclusive location full of blooms and only available during Spring to feature.  The Carlsbad Flower Fields, in San Diego, CA is only open from March to May, however weddings take place all year long and it makes a charming location for rustic weddings particularly in the Fall season.

The expansive fields of flower makes a spectacular backdrop for a wedding or a photo shoot, as well as a very romantic location for a marriage proposal.  The 50 acres of colorful flowers bloom at Carlsbad Ranch on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  A special occasion will be truly memorable when celebrated on these fields which are rich in history with 85 years of floral cultivation.

Spring Equinox Wedding Theme

Spring is here and in honor of the Spring Equinox, the favor fairy has selected Rose Ball Candles for Favor Fairy Friday.

The ball of roses reminds us of abundance of flower and growth that spring time brings.  A wedding with such a spring theme is encircled with the healing of the green surrounded with flowers.

A wedding that may take place in botanical gardens to bring forth more of the nature element.

Place Soft pink roses everywhere.

Soft and flowing gowns and flower in the hair is an element of the Spring Equinox.
