Stuff Brides Say (VIDEO)

The Knot.com created a parody of all the things brides say while planning their weddings.  The stress of wedding planning can get the best of even the most level-headed brides, but when all the planning is done, the most memorable moment of that day will be when the bride and groom become one.

Yogurt Bar: A Sweet Alternative

Longing for a unique way to satisfy your guests' sweet tooth?  Chocolate fountains and candy bars are great, but can add on the extra pounds.  For your health-conscious guests, why not consider hosting a Yogurt Bar!

Yogurt Bars are ideal at weddings, brunch, corporate events, birthday parties and even baby showers!  The yogurt bar is a healthy alternative to most desserts.  Imagine an elegantly attired catering crew dishing anywhere up to 12 flavors of ice-creamy, rich, soft-serve frozen yogurt, with a vast selection of toppings.  Your guest indulge themselves in any of the scrumptious flavors, mixing and matching to their heart's content!

Try a Yogurt Bar at your next event.  I'm sure that your guests will be talking about it months after your event is over.

Drop A Hint this Valentine's Day

Just in time for Valentine's Day, the creative minds of the marketing group of our favorite jeweler, Tiffany & Co. have figured out the way to make life easy for boyfriends/husbands and future grooms looking for the perfect gift wrapped in the Tiffany Blue Box.  The jeweler has added a Drop a Hint option to their site that will allow that special someone to choose exactly what they are expecting to receive this Valentine's Day!

Once the gift is chosen, select the option to Drop a Hint.  Another screen will pop-up and the person will then be prompted to enter their name and email, as well as Your True Love's name and email.

A "hint" will then be forwarded to the person giving the Tiffany blue box.

Bravo Tiffany & Co.!

Momentos that Matter

After the photos, there are many other ways to ensure that all that happiness from your special day, is wrapped up safely to revisit whenever you need.  Create a memory box.  Make a treasure trove of all those little bits and pieces which the less sentimental might cast in a bin.

If you're feeling creative, you could cover a box in a fabric remnant from your dress, or your bridesmaids', and trim it with a ribbon and vingtage style brooch.  Put in anything evocative or which might make you smile (or raise an eyebrow) in a few years' time, such as:
An invitation to your wedding
  • Letters or reply cards or even thank you cards
  • Wedding cards and gift labels
  • Your pre-wedding "To Do" list
  • A champagne or wine bottle label
  • Your written wedding vows (and His)
  • A wedding favour
  • Ribbons from flowers or decorations
  • CD of the music played at your wedding ceremony, or for your first dance

You can also ask your guests to write messages:

  • Put pile of small cards on each table, with a pen and a box to put them in once messages have been written.
  • Get a book which can be disassembled (or make one with card, paper and ribbon, take the pages out, put one or two on each table for signing, and reassemble later.)

Whatever you decide to keep, you will treasure in years to come.
