Wedding Guest Conversation Starters…

…Just Don’t Put Your Ex Next To Your Therapist!

Last week, on the Wishpot Wedding Blog, I featured these hilarious buttons which come in several different colors and styles!  I think these would come in handy at any wedding, shower or bachelorette party.  Either as favors or just as something fun to put next to place settings to get guests talking…

My favorite idea for these would be to offer up “Driver” buttons to designated drivers so the bartender knows to serve them virgin cocktails and the party animals can get home safely.  The options are endless though, so have a little fun with it!  To see more ideas I have for these buttons, read my guest blog at Wishpot Weddings by clicking HERE.  Love them?  Visit www.makemmingle.com to get yours.  Happy mingling!

A Look Back At Wedding Inspiration From 2008…

with one comment

…While We Look Forward To Wedding Style In 2009!

Happy New Year!!!

This week, I thought we could take a trip down memory lane together and look back at some of my favorite entries from my blog.  While many of us are happy 2009 is here, 2008 was a great year indeed – when it came to wedding talk!  So please, sit back, grab a cup of coffee and join me as I dig up some fun for you.  I hope you enjoy!

1.) What To Do When The Planning Is Over:  Some brides who enjoyed planning their weddings from start to finish, begin to go through wedding planning withdrawal issues once the wedding is over.  So what’s a newlywed to do?  Enjoy this video posted by a bride who took actual dialog from a wedding message board and turned it into her own hilarious skit, reenacting real conversation between newlyweds!  Ready to laugh?  Click HERE.

2.) Letterpress Gift Tags: In February, fabulous letterpress gift tags became popular and were featured in the Bride & Bloom Magazine, including gorgeous ones from letterpress expert & designer Denise Johnson of Bellis Studios.  To see these beauties and read all about it, click HERE.

3.) Decorate Your Entrance With This Whimsical DIY Project:  Mimi from Enjoy Celebrations and Occasions completed a fantastic DIY project which was a true labor of love.  She wrote in different languages, “Joy”, “Love” and “Welcome” on circles then hung them with ribbon, inside a doorway leading guests to the wedding.  To see this simply lovely project and get inspired to create your own, click HERE.

4.) The Most Creative Guestbook Ideas:  Instead of the traditional guest book, this couple chose to create something that would also work as a piece of art in their home  and be cherished forever after.  They punched holes into pieces of colored plexiglass and hung them on a metal frame.  At the wedding, guests enjoyed decorating and signing the plexiglass with metallic ink pens.  The couple then illuminated the hanging art with light for a spectacular treat!  To see, click HERE.  I also came up with another creative guestbook idea – on a shower curtain!  To see this idea brides loved, click HERE.

5.) Darling Black & White Damask:  In March, I finally jumped on the inspiration board train and created my very first board, grabbing inspiration to share for a black and white damask style wedding.  Damask is still popular, so if you’re looking to get inspired for your own wedding, click HERE.  Also, find more black & white damask inspiration on my blog by clicking HERE.  I got a little excited over this trend! 

6.) Wedding Invitation Assembly Guest Blog From Denise Of Bellis Studios:  So your invitations came back from the printer, now what?  Is there a special order they should go in when assembling them?  Turns out, there is.  Some printers will include a mock-up for you.  But in case yours didn’t, here’s an instruction sheet.  You can download it in pdf format by clicking HERE.

7.) A Wine-Themed Wedding Shower:  In April, I featured how to get free and stylish wine labels and also how to create wine charms to use as favors.  Find out how to get your labels by clicking HERE.  Learn to make those charms and how to throw a vino inspired shower by clicking HERE.  Cheers!

8.) Suit Up Sexy For Your Honeymoon: In May, we highlighted some very sexy retro swimwear inspired by Marilyn Monroe.  To get with the trend, click HERE.

9.) Meeting Brides.com and Angel Sanchez:  I still don’t know how I got so lucky, but last year I was honored and totally thrilled to be invited to the Brides.com Wedding Bloggers Luncheon at the Conde Nast building in NYC!  There I met Editor-In-Chief of Brides.com, Michelle Preli, celebrity wedding gown designer Angel Sanchez and a small group of very creative wedding bloggers!  To read more about my amazing experience, click HERE, HERE and HERE!  Man, was it great time!!!

10.) Vera Wang Luxe Bride Barbie Doll Introduced:  Barbie is simply stunning in a dress inspired by one of the gowns in the Vera Wang Luxe Collection.  You knew I was a Barbie girl, didn’t you?  To see her in her gorgeous gown and find out where to find her, click HERE.

11.) A Sunflower Sun Shower & Wedding:  Over the summer, I helped plan my cousin’s bridal shower and wedding.  Her shower was a hit, both with family and the blog!  To see pictures of this very sunny event and get inspired for your own, click HERE.  To see how beautiful the wedding turned out, click HERE

12.) Bridal Boudoir Portraits Became Popular:  Last year, this became one very sexy trend for brides…and a great gift idea for their grooms!  To learn about it and see some fabulous shots, click HERE.

13.) Marvelous Braided Updo In Less Than 10 Minutes:  Weddings are expensive, but your hair doesn’t have to be!  See how to create this simple but stylish ‘do for your own wedding hair by clicking HERE.

14.) Vintage Weddings Hit The Roof:  Oh yes…you know you loved it!  Ok, well most of you did and I can understand why!  Take a look at some of my favorite vintage posts on my blog by clicking HERE, HERE, oh and well, HERE too!

15.) Breakfast At Tiffany’s Theme:  Whether for a bachelorette party, bridal shower or wedding, these Breakfast At Tiffany’s style invitations can’t be beat!  To see them, click HERE.

16.) High Style For Expecting Brides:  Maybe you’re expecting a baby AND a fabulous wedding!  If so, you’ll love these maternity wedding dresses I featured back in September…to see, click HERE.

17.) Bridal Jewelry For Your Contact Lenses:  I think it’s safe to say that while this might have tried to become a new trend, it failed miserably.  It’s the strangest thing ever, you’ve got to see it to believe it.  To do so, click HERE.

18.) It’s A Jaime Thing Interviewed On The Wedding Planning Audiocast Show:  This past fall, I was so excited when Ralph Mucci interviewed me but I cannot tell a lie – I was a tinsy bit nervous before the show.  However, Ralph was very easy to talk to and he’s a such a nice fella, so it actually ended up being a joy.  To take a listen to my show segment and read more about what you can find over at The Wedding Planning Audiocast, click HERE!

…The Bridal Wave Is Here!

The ATM loves you.  So does Hallmark.  As does Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, Macy’s and all the other fabulous stores that your friends are registered at.  So do some of the airlines.  You’ve made friends with sales peeps at the dress stores.  And the shoe stores.  The credit card companies freakin’ adore you. 

Why do these places love you?  My darlings, it’s because you’re the ultimate wedding guest!   And what’s that, I hear?  Since you’ve become best friends with the sales department at David’s Bridal, you’re now invited to their weddings too?!  Oh dear.  

Well, dears – no fret, it’s going to be ok.  Let me introduce you to The Bridal Wave, a funny little read by authors Erin Torneo and Valerie Cabrera Krause:

 

A perfect book for those of you experiencing, non-stop, those three little words – “I’m getting married!”, or the other three little words, “You are invited!”, by your nearest and dearest (oh, and don’t forget the ladies at the dress shop too!).

Must grab a copy for yourself?  Find out how to get it by clicking HERE.  Hope you enjoy!

A Real Sunflower Wedding! And Cheeseburgers In Paradise?!

with 7 comments

…At McDonalds?!  Yep!

One of my favorite weddings we attended this year (I loved them all!) was my cousin’s.  Since winter is right around the corner here in Chicago, I figured I’d try to brighten up these cold fall days with a little bit of real, happy, sunshine filled wedding inspiration…pictures from her wedding!  Let’s get happy and soak up the sun just one more time before the frost comes, shall we? 

Welcome to “paradise”!   Here is a sneak peek of her wedding at McDonald’s…it was beautiful!  She even handed out McDonald’s “Cheeseburgers in Paradise as a special midnight snack for guests,  it was too awesome and oh so much fun!  Everyone loved it.

More pictures to come, so keep checking back.  Congratulations to the happy couple!!!

…Sweet Little Ways Of Reminding Your Honey To Do What He Should!

So you’re getting married, huh?  Congratulations!  Whether you’re already living together or waiting until after the big day to move into each other’s space, these helpful reminders will help keep your marriage a happy one!

Have you ever had the pleasure of falling into the toilet?  Let me tell you, it’s not pleasant.  So save yourself!  If you need to “Potty Train” your man to kindly put the lid down (to prevent any future fall-ins), remind him nicely:

Please Be Sweet And Close The Seat” – Vinyl Decal by Etsy seller Decalmonograms:

 The economy is rough, so get saving!  Start by cutting down on your electric bill so you can enjoy more date nights together.  This makes a great little reminder to turn off those lights – and get romantic!

If It’s Still Bright, Turn Out The Light” – Vinyl Decal by Etsy seller Decalmonograms:

See?  Nice and simple.  If you love these decals, shop for these and more by clicking HERE.  The seller creates not only fun little sayings, but initials and names too – at affordable pricing.  Happy shopping!
