With spring on the rise and having just moved into our new office space we are planting lavender and fragrant herbs under the window outdoors so we can enjoy a fragrantly calming scent to keep us grooving on timelines, layout and design plans galore.
2014 is all about the couture wedding dress. This is the perfect avenue for a bride that doesn’t quite know what she wants, or if she has tried on many dresses and isn’t finding the “right fit”. A couture dress is shaped to your body type, custom made to flatter you. Often with a couture dress, the product is made of premium material rather than made in china. Best of all, couture dresses are generally at a reasonable price starting at $3k. I recently paid a visit to Blue Bridal Boutique of Austin to meet with the esteemed Anna Campbell. Anna Campbell gowns are known for their elegant, vintage feel, and their breathtaking beadwork. The soft, feminine designs drape, twist and fall around the body, and are finished with the finest of lace, silk and intricate beading. One of my favorite local vendors for a couture dress is Atelier des Modistes.
Cake tasting can be deliciously overwhelming. Here are a few insider tips to help guide you to your perfect wedding day confection.
1. Bring your wedding inspirations to assist with cake design

3. Make sure the flavors represent you as a couple
4. Think about your venue and how the cake will look in the space
5. Think about how your cake will be photographed as you discuss the design
Now lift your fork and enjoy. This is one of the sweetest parts of planning a wedding.
