Announcing the 2012 Pantone Color of the Year - Tangering Tango!

I’m so excited that the Pantone 2012 Color of the Year has been announced! According to the Associated Press, Tangerine Tango is described as a vivacious, enticing hue, a “spirited reddish orange”. I love the warmth that this shade will bring to 2012 weddings. Look for this beautiful shade in bridesmaids dresses by Dessy and a beauty collection from Sephora in March!


Enjoying Bridal Shows

How to ensure you have a FABULOUS time at Bridal Shows


As a newly engaged bride to be, you owe it to yourself to attend a bridal show or two.  They are fun and filled with valuable information.  You can gather inspiration, eat cake and get your wedding planning started.  Below are some tips to consider.


  • Register ahead of time – this will allow you to jump in the shorter line.
  • Leave your coat in the car and carry a handbag that will allow you to be hands free.
  • Take along someone in your support circle – your mom, your sister or your maid of honor.
  • Collect business cards and write notes on the back while the information is fresh in your mind.  You will be thankful later you took the time to do this.
  • Take your camera!  You will be amazed at the beautiful floral arrangements, exquisite cakes, thoughtful favors and gowns you will see.  Besides, I know you want to capture the moment with you and your mom/sis/maid of honor.  Your wedding is a process to be enjoyed throughout your engagement.  So snap away at all the pictures. 
  • My favorite tip is this – As a Perfect Wedding Guide Advertiser in Indianapolis, I can send a FREE admission ticket to the bride and groom for the Jan. 9th and 10th Perfect Wedding Guide Bridal Show at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.  Just email me at

Remember, this is your time to savor being a bride to be.  Don’t feel pressured to plan your wedding in one day.  Take it all in and get inspired. 

Love and Hugs,

The 2010 Wedding Trends have been released and I have had so much fun researching what the experts believe will be the hottest trends this upcoming year.  Let me share with you my favorite picks.   




  • Birdcage Veils – These shorter, chic veils are stunning paired with short, slick hairdos or Vintage styled gowns.  Are you a confident bride who can pull off this fabulous look?





  • Colors – Monochromatic palettes and Vibrant Colors of Orange, Yellow and Pink will be popular.  Even hotter will be the Metallic Colors of pewter, gold, bronze and silver.  Imagine pairing this color scheme in accents for your Glamour inspired wedding.

  • Mismatched Bridesmaid’s Dresses – Your maids no longer need to suffer with cookie cutter dresses. Provide guidelines of color, formality and length.  Your bridesmaids will thank you for allowing them to wear dresses that are flattering to their figures!

  • Buttercream Icing – Wow!  Aren’t we all thankful this delicious, rich and creamy topping on cakes is making a comeback!  As a bonus, buttercream icing is less costly than fondant.

 Alternative Aisles – Create a circle aisle for your procession.  The bride will pass by every guest for a truly intimate ceremony.  The couple can enter from multiple spots and meet in the center.

  • Backyard Weddings – Create a personal, intimate affair that allows you to focus on the details over the grandeur of the event.
