Ruche Bridal Boutique

Today while browsing Ruche for potential dresses for all of our upcoming weddings this year I came across the Bridal section. Needless to say I jumped onto our blog to post about it immediately because I fell completely in love with it! I may be behind on this new discovery but either way all future brides need to check this site out. Not only do they carry bridal and bridesmaids gowns but they offer adorable clutches, shoes, accessories and much more! Click here for the link.

Let me just share some of my favorite looks….It was hard to pick!

Valentine’s Decor Ideas

On Valentine’s Day it is important to show the ones you love how much they mean to you! Some people are more subtle with a card, box of candy, or flowers but for those of us who like to go a bit over board or just love to craft and be creative, we have some really fun ideas on how to spruce up your Valentine’s Day! Start with some really cute and fun decorations. Who says you have to use all pink, reds, and roses??

Love the use of doilies and lace with these fun and different garlands

For the Bride Who isn’t Afraid to Make a Statement

We had mentioned last week some of the up and coming trends for 2012 and we really wanted to elaborate on the statement necklace.  There is no better way to add color, sparkle, or life to any outfit then to add an amazing necklace so why should it be any different on your wedding day?

These next 2 looks would be perfect for the beachy bride. The not so typical beach accents and colorful punch will definitely grab your guests attention and really highlight the brides style.

For the more classic bride but who still wants to be unique, go with pearls! Pearls can literally go with any wedding dress since it is so classic but add a twist by using something likes these 2 styles.

Kate Spade- Pearl Bauble Necklace


Lauren Elan- Abbey

The vintage bride would look great in any of these pieces.  Both of these necklaces from BHLDN look like they have a story behind them and really add some old world glamour to your event.
