If The Shoe Fits…

…Get Fit With The Shoes!

You know I’m all about high heels and pretty little shoes.  However, if you’re looking to show off those legs of yours with a fabulous pair of heels on your wedding day (or any day!), consider getting these shoes which I guest blogged about this week on the Wishpot.com Wedding Blog

The Fit Flop from Victoria’s Secret:

Get a workout while you walk around. Engineered to engage muscles, lessen joint impact and absorb shock, these flip-flops burn calories and tone legs with every step.” – V.S.

Victorias Secret Patent Walkstar III flip flops 59 95

Reebok Easy Tone Shoes:

With built in balance pods, the Reebok EasyTone will help you firm and sculpt your legs and rear while you go about your busy day.  These balance pods create a naturally unstable platform as you walk, causing your muscles to activate and adapt.” – Reebok

With all of the running around and shopping brides do with wedding planning, shoes like these are the perfect way to get fit in time for your wedding day, even if you feel you don’t have the time to excersize.  Hot legs, nice butt?  These are great for any fabulous multi-tasking woman!

If you’re planning a sunflower wedding, send a little extra sunshine to impress your guests!  Do so with these stunning swirly Sunflower Letterpress Invitations which I recently featured over at OneWed.com Savvy Scoop Blog

What is letterpress?  “The art of letterpress involves inking raised type and then impressing it directly onto the printing surface. The result is an impression that you can see and feel.” – Denise Johnson 

This gorgeous design can also be printed in the colors curry and brown!   Choose from several different pieces to complete your perfect invitation.  Want to get a feel before you order your invitations?  Get yourself a sample by clicking HERE.

Brides, if you love the look but you’re on a tighter budget, no worries.  Consider the option of printing digital instead!  Digital printing is also a faster option if you’re in a bit more of a hurry.

Have you ever visited the kind of  jewelry store where inside, you fall in love with every piece displayed?  That’s the exact feeling I experienced when I visited Oye Modern online today.  Brides, if you’re trying to find the right jewelry for all of your pre-wedding parties or your wedding day, take a look at some of these beauties below!

Order a set in either sterling silver or gold, to exchange on the big day.  Not only stylish, but somewhat practical for those who might work in construction and need to take their rings off for safety reasons!
