Oooh la la Cadeau

I just stumbled upon this amazing site that sends these gorgeous wrapped gifts, called Oooh la la Cadeau. I LOVE how they are so personalized and luxurious looking. This would make a great gift idea, for friends and family that have helped out at your wedding, but anyone would be lucky to receive one of these.

Everyone Needs a Little Help!

Planning an event, no matter how big or small, is always a tough challenge. Take weddings, for example. Suddenly the bride and groom are expected to host hundreds of guests, create a cohesive look and feeling of a party, outfit themselves and their attendants, and perform hundreds of small tasks off the "endless to-do list".

I feel for you, and having been there myself, I would love to help out. I'm getting tons of questions all the time about favors, theme colors, centerpieces etc., so I decided to start an "Event Advice & Help" section. Feel free to email me any time with any questions at all! I will try my best to answer them. I'll start off with one shortly.

Flowers for Deep Pink Dresses?

This post is dedicated to my sister in law, who's getting married this November. She's been looking for a colour palette that will fit together with her bridesmaid dress colour of deep pink. Her invitations are deep mauve. Because the wedding is in the midst of fall/winter, I suggest going tone on tone with slight accents of deep brown. Here are some options below: My pick, would be the Mauve/Purple tone on tone bouquet wrapped with a thick satin brown ribbon. Photos (top to bottom- Martha Stewart, Modern Day, Le Bouquetier)
