Beach & Nautical Theme Wedding Flip Flop Pails

Wedding Flip Flop Pails

Although designed as an entryway repository for sandy flip-flops, these flip flop pails can also serve as ice buckets, planters, and are the absolute perfect accessories for beach theme weddings.  As many of you are well aware, flip flops have replaced socks on wedding dance floors throughout the country.  The issue is not whether to supply flip flops but rather how to display them in a festive, sophisticated manner befitting a wedding. When we found these adorable wedding flip flop bins on Belle & June we just had to share! They are absolutely perfect for beach theme and destination weddings.  And since they are trimmed in gold, we think they would work just fine at just about any wedding.  These wedding flip flop pails will add a needed touch of whimsy to even the most formal black tie affairs.  These flip flop bins will work equally well at a beach theme fundraiser, Bat Mitzvah, Sweet Sixteen, Quinceanera celebration, or any party with dancing!  Continue Reading →

The Classic Tuxedo – Men’s Formal Wedding Attire | To Rent or To Own?

The Classic Tuxedo – Men's Formal Wedding Attire

The best argument for investing in your own tuxedo!

After hours spent scoping out every tuxedo on the market, I finally chose a designer tuxedo I thought would be perfect for our wedding. I immediately called my husband to have him pass on the details to his dad (his best man), his brothers, and the other groomsmen. In my very own bridezilla moment I completely lost it when my now husband called and said that my tux choice was a “no go” – he informed me that his dad explained that the men in his family do not get married in a rented tuxedo.

At the time, I thought the response was “uppity” and did not see the need for my husband or his groomsmen to own their own tuxes. 30 years later, as my husband dons his wedding tux for the hundredth time, I must admit I was wrong.  Every single time he puts on that very same tuxedo he wore to our wedding it brings me back to that very special day and reminds me of just how much I loved him that day and every day since.

Mother Daughter Matching Party Dresses

MomMeMatch.com has done it again 🙂 We are obsessed with these mother daughter party dresses for fancy Easter parties, or for spring and summer weddings, or for just about any special occasion.  The featured girl's outfit is a light pink and black color block dress from Janie & Jack.  The mom's coordinating blush and light pink color block dress we found on Rent the Runway so although still pricey, you get to wear a gorgeous high end designer dress for a fraction of the cost of buying it. This particular stunner is Narciso Rodriguez's Geo Shift Dress which retails for $1695 but can be rented for $225. It's flowy fabric brings an element of softness to this updated blush and black shift completed with minimalist heels and a messy-chic bun.  What more can we say – both gals will turn heads with their mother daughter almost matching party dresses.

Here are just a few more options in blush, emerald green, black and navy, white, and deep blue.  Oh so pretty.  Oh so chic & elegant. And now, oh so affordable designer dresses with Rent the Runway. Continue Reading →
