Color Palette Contest, Day 1

Today is day one of our color palette contest! We had a HUGE response to this...literally hundreds of entries. Although I so wish that I could post each and every one, I have chosen to feature those that I felt would "show" the best on the blog. We are going to be posting a stream of palettes all day, every day for the entire week. Because Friday is a holiday, we are going to extend the contest into the beginning of next week, with voting on Tuesday. In the meantime,  am sure that the...

Ask Abby

Here is an issue that so many brides and grooms struggle with...the music!

Question 4: We are having a non-religious ceremony on the beach with about 125 guests. The attire is formal and for the most part, the ceremony will be pretty traditional. The only thing left to plan is the entrance music for the parents/grandparents, the bridesmaids and for myself....I want something that is beautiful, but not over-the-top wedding (ie. no "here comes the bride"). We are completely stumped...

Ask Abby

To Veil or Not To Veil...I get this question a lot from readers, so I thought I would weigh in and see what you guys thought!

Question 3: I am wearing a vintage style dress (Pronovias design Castor which you can see on their site) with the high necked jacket and the low v back.  I have shoulder-blade length straight hair and had originally planned to wear it in a low bun at the nape of my neck with a large ivory silk flower to one side as the allegra one illustrated...

Ask Abby

Our next question comes from a reader who is looking for some creative groom gift ideas...

Question 2: My fiance loves sports (personally plays golf, but loves them all) and is an
avid gambler. He's not a fashionista so things like cufflinks are out. I want to
get him something meaningful and clever and not resort to getting him a Wii or
something like that.

Any fun ideas for this...

Ask Abby

I thought that you guys could help me tackle some of the Ask Abby (we are changing the name from Dear Abby so as not to get confused with the real deal "Dear Abby") questions that have been building up in my inbox. The last few weeks of questions have focused on color palettes, though in reality, wedding colors are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to tough decisions couples make throughout the wedding planning process. Here are a few brides that have hit stumbling blocks along the...

Real Wedding by Doug Mcgoldrick

Since same-sex weddings are becoming more and more mainstream, I thought that I would share a few of my favorites today. One of our little black book photographers, Doug McGoldrick, sent me this gorgeous wedding and the cake alone was enough to send me over the edge...

I looooove the discs that are hanging from the ceiling...they add a modern sensibility to the affair. I also think that the huge banquets style tables with...
