Happy Valentine's Day week! If you don't know, let me tell you...I love Valentine's Day and everything that goes along with it. Yes, that includes consuming ungodly amounts of chocolate; cheesy hallmark cards; oversized, heart-shaped helium balloons; dinners for two (or a group of girlfriends when I was single); and "suprise" bouquets of red roses. Yep, I'm that girl. The girl who loves love and loves to celebrate it the most on Love Day, aka Valentine's Day.
If you aren't quite as excited about this week as I am( first of all shame on you, lol), I have just the thing to transition you into the mood by Thursday. Start with your nails! There is nothing like looking down at your hands and seeing a neatly manicured fingerscape...yes, I made up that word, but you can use it, too.
Here are some cool Valentine's Day nail art ideas. If these are too bold for you, simply get your nails painted a fire engine red, but reserve your ring finger on both hands for a soft, school girl pink. Oooh, now that screams (in a subtle whisper type way, lol) Happy Valentine's day!
Stay tuned for the rest of the week, we have Valentine's Day and Love Themed inspirations for tons of occasions. Oh, and we can't wait to show this weekend's Meet Me At the Altar style. I'm already swooning.
I absolutely adore the use
of fabric in outdoor ceremonies. For instance this smaller ceremony is made
to feel intimate by allowing the fabric panels to close in the ceremony
space. Also by leaving the panels slightly open a sense of depth is created from the light
shining through amidst the stairs in the background.
What do you think about
the use of fabric in this ceremony?
Is there a way you could
incorporate fabric in your altar?
As much as the wedding day is about the holy union of marriage
you’re entering into, don’t forget to involve those you’ve been in union with
If you have never experienced a very close friend or family
member go from single to married, it’s quite a transition. Those closest to you
are, in a sense, losing a part of you.
Your life will never be the same as you’ll enter into a covenant becoming one
with another who will be the most important person in your life. I say that to
say if you haven’t already thought about it, make a little room throughout the
wedding process to connect with those dearest to you. Stop discussing
checklists for a moment and share how you are feeling whether excited, nervous,
anxious, etc. Or better yet, ask them how they are doing, unrelated to the
wedding activities.They will love you
even more for it.
Invite them on your journey, so they can go through the process
of saying good bye and prepare to greet the new married woman in their lives.

From childhood, many people imagine their big day, but am I the only one who thinks about
the fabulous trip thereafter? Maybe it’s just my traveler heart, but what’s
more romantic than embarking on a glorious journey to a beautiful land with the
one you’ve just pledged your life too??
There are so many places
one can go and so many various activities to do. So where to?
In the spirit of spring time weddings here are three honeymoon
spots that do not disappoint in spring:
U.S. Virgin Islands
Two of the best things about this location is that there is need for a passport and you’ll still have normal cell phone service. Great for those who just want to sit on the beach and work on their post wedding tan. There are
carnivals that happen in the spring
as well for the more active couple wanting to experience the local culture.
Are you a
romantic, foodie, shopaholic or history buff? All four will be fulfilled in Paris. The city is resurrected from it’s
winter slumber and begins to bloom around April.
Markets, writers, cafes and painters begin to fill the streets once again. Make plans to tour the monuments you’ve
always desired to see, setup museum tours,
visit world renown restaurants and find treasures to bring home from chic French boutiques. Mix and match great places
to go for the couple who loves to explore.
On a budget or
just wanting to stay a bit closer to home? Well, South Carolina is quite splendid in the spring! Have you ever
seen a magnolia tree in full bloom let alone
smelled the sweet aroma? Well you’re in for a treat! For the couple that justdesires to spend their honeymoon in one
another’s arms check in at a cute hotel or
B&B . Wake up late, take walks down the historic streets, and partake of
wonderful southern comfort foods.
