Something Borrowed, Blue, Old and New

When I think of wedding traditions the first thing that comes to mind is something borrowed, blue, old and new. Every bride I have talked to can list off all of the items they used for this tradition.
Most of the items you will choose as a new bride will be from friends and family. But incase you are in need of some new, fun and creative ideas we have formed a list for you to choose from.

Something Old: 
- One idea a lot of people have been doing this summer is using a a classic car for transportation on the      big day. 
- You could find a vintage pocket mirror and place it in your purse for the night. 
- Have the ceremony or reception at a historical location.
- You could use a antique book mark for the ceremony to mark the readings 

Something Borrowed: 
- Borrow a book from the library that has a poem or reading you would like read at your ceremony.
- Borrow jewelry from a friend or member 
- Borrow a man or a women's button down shirt for when you get your hair and make up done. 

Something New: 
- Buy a new lipstick only for your wedding day 
- Design a custom perfume for you on this big day
- Buy a new charm for your charm or Pandora bracelet 

Something Blue: 
- Pack blue lingerie for the wedding night 
- Have a touch of blue eye shadow on your wedding 
- Put one blue flower in your bouquet if blue isn't in your color scheme.

Another creative idea is you could tie the items you find or buy into the theme of your wedding.

Congratulations on your engagement!

The Wonders Of Having A Winter Wedding

Many brides believe having a winter wedding is a huge mistake! Especially when you live in Michigan where the weather is completely unpredictable. Instantly when you think of winter you think the gross, wet and terrible months we all go through. But what you should be thinking is how beautiful and elegant winter weddings are.

Just imagine while you and your husband are saying your "I Do's" and snow starts falling while you share your first kiss as a married couple. I believe winter weddings are the most romantic. Whats better the snuggling up to your loved one under a nice warm fire!

The best aspects of a winter wedding is the photography, the colors you can pick from and the flowers. Some great colors you can pick are a jewel tones such as, dark blue, deep red, forest green and dark purple. When paired with white those colors really shine.

The photographs you will get taken during this day will be breath taking. Your white dress against the snow is a must have even if it is freezing cold out side! 

The flowers you can pick during this season are endless! You don't have to settle for just flowers either you can pick pine cones or needles and spices.

Couple of The Month ~ Paula + Luke, Crystal Gardens Southgate

We are excited to be coordinating Paula and Luke's wedding day on Friday, November 15 at Crystal Gardens. Here is a word from Paula ....
Luke and I met in March of 2008 through my niece. My niece Michelle, her fiance
(at the time) Dave and I bowled on Friday nights. One Friday night Dave brought a friend to watch us bowl which was (Luke) we met that night and there was an instant connection we got to know each other and let nature take it's course.
I am in the medical field working as a Medical Assistant and a student pursing my BSN in nursing. 
On December 18, 2009 Luke took me to Frankenmuth, MI for a weekend get away. On December 19th Luke had arranged a romantic horse and carriage ride for the evening. After standing outside in the frigid cold for 2 hours about 5 mins before we approached the carriage it started snowing the Christmas music was playing I felt a romantic feeling. As we rode through town Luke asked me if we had did everything that I wanted to do in Frankenmuth yet? I told him pretty much and that's when he told me that he had not and proposed to me. I didn't even see him pull the ring box out yes he was that smooth.
My upcoming wedding plans are finalizing everything and getting all the little personal touches complete for my wedding at Crystal Gardens in Southgate, MI.We have 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen. My colors are black and white with a pop of red and the theme is really a black and white love theme.
