Recently Alica Keys tied the knot and I was one that was super excited to see what she wore. As most of you know Mrs. Key is expecting and not only was her headpiece a show stopper. But I admired her wedding gown and it just shows you can still be the most gorgeous bride with your added blessing in your belly. So I give her two thumbs up and also I wanted to share other maternity gowns that rock as well.

After attending the NYC make-up show, I realize just how much things have changed for our NYC brides we are headed in a fashionista direction. It is so wonderful to see our brides express themselves at the event of their life. Forget what people may think of you. Your wedding is your time to shine and be creative. The three pics here are of the exciting things taking place. The first pics is of a woman getting her body make-up done I thought with a classic strapless gown this would allow a fantasy pop. And our CW pic is Melanie (aka Tia Mowry) of The Game. I love this gown because it shows you what a NYC bride would wear on a summer evening. And the shoe is my favorite. They were being worn by a sales girl at the NYC Make-up Show. I am not sure of the designer name for these shoes but I love them and gotta have them and I think that if you wear one thing wild and crazy for your wedding it should be your shoes.... Please not the white shoe:) your not a nurse.

These days when brides are facing economic hard times everyone is looking to save in some way. But most brides are not opting to sacrifice and lose the elegance and style of there dream wedding. One bride ask me " How do I save on Centerpieces?" Well while I was shopping for a gift for Mothers Day I came across a bouquet that was cute and stylish for a small wedding. For $30.00 a pop,these cute centerpieces can really create a modern and stylish effect. To jazz it up I would recommend using colored votive to compliment it. And it is always best to use a clear vase. You can also visit a fabric shop and find a bright color fabric to create a formal stylish look.
Don't forget that if you choose this option in flowers make sure that they are deliver a day of two before the day and place in a cool refrigerated area so the buds can open before your reception and always follow the caring instruction that are provide with your flowers.

The Dress is so classic for the occasion. I admire the gown due to the fact that it makes me think of today's bride. NowI Know that it is not a wedding day or a anniversary party but compare to the first lady original wedding gown this is pure new age bride.

Over the weekend I had the chance to meet up with a few friends for a cake designing class. I have always wanted to attend one and I had the chance to create a wedding cake with friends. And while I began to create I could not help but think about what a money saver this is. Many of the other students were jaw dropping great! And all I can say is hire a amateur to help cut cost on your wedding day. Many of these women a small time entrepreneur and willing to give you a reasonable price. Some have even mention how they enjoy it so much that all they need a materials. So log on to criagslist call your local culinary school and search the Internet for these amateur cake designer and save! Here is a pic of my fun creation.

Cupcakes or Wedding Cake? Decisions Decisions,where do you start? Constant news reports of a stock market that hint of a huge recession at hand. It is hard to determine how to spend your wedding budget when it comes to your dream cake. Cutting cost on your vision of the perfect cake could put your mind in a boogle. I have found that the best way to have your dream theme when it comes to the sweet treat of the evening is instead of spending five to nine dollars on a slice of wedding cake you can choose the cutiest custom little cakes which can also cut your cake expenses in half. What little cakes am I referring to? Cupcakes that is! I mean think of it a personal bite size treat for every attendee. They come in all colors, they can run from bite size to palm size; each guest including yourself will feel like you have had a personal touch added just for you. Decorations from edible to real flowers can be the cutiest addedd extras. The cupcakes can be displayed on multi-tiered Cupcake Towers for all to see. The towers complete the vision. So if you wanna cut cost from $300-500 on a three tiered standard wedding cake down to a $150 - 200 on cupcakes make the switch. Go Cupcakes for your 2009 wedding and save big time.
