Tea Time

If you're planning your wedding and looking for your perfect wedding gown why not consider a tea length dress? A throw back to the 50's and 60's, tea length gowns are fun, feminine and a fashionable alternative to the traditional cathedral gown.

What exactly is a tea length gown? Tea length dresses fall between the knee and ankle and often have a full skirt. In my opinion nobody wore this style better than Audrey Hepburn. It just screams grace, elegance and style.

Whether you take inspiration from Ms Hepburn, scour local vintage stores or turn to a modern bridal designer, my prediction is that you will be see a lot more tea length gowns walking down the aisle.

More Caravan Love

I can't help myself, i have to write again about vintage caravans. I'm so happy to see them used as props in engagement and wedding photographs. I wish i had the courage to buy my own, renovate it and hire it out for lucky, fun people to enjoy. I found a wonderful lady in the UK who is doing exactly that... My Vintage Party is so whimsical and wonderful (see image in row 9). What a great idea to host your bridal shower in (or outside) a vintage caravan... i'm swooning !!!

We Are The Perfect Mix

How sweet it is to be loved by you! And won't your guests be loving you when they receive one of these gorgeous cookie mix jars as a thank you for their sweet wedding wishes. I think your wedding day is the perfect occasion to spoil your family and friends and leave them with sweet memories forever. Imagine their delight when they find one of these little gifts in their hotel room.

They are soooo sweet and soooo easy to make yourself. Not only that, but there are hundreds of ways you can personalize them to suit your individual taste and style. Attach a heart shaped cookie cutter, a measuring spoon or petit whisk, along with a sweet note to your guests. They'll be drooling and craving a cookie until they get home. Yummy.
