What is there not to love about these feminine and whimsical gowns by Plum Pretty Sugar. Their new collection of handcrafted bridesmaids dresses captures traditional elegance with a modern twist we are swooning over.

The Billy Gown: Inspired by rhythem and music

The Charlie Gown: Which is light, gentle and angelic like

The James Gown: This gown evokes enchantment – Its romantic make is inspired by grand couture

The Ryan Gown: The feminine gown resembles that of a ballerina – with its flowy shape and silk chiffon

Real Wedding ECO Tricks!

April 22, 2015

It takes real wedding pictures and examples to know that it really is possible! Today, we thought we would share just a few things that make it possible to save both the environment and your budget!

Oh escort cards, you aren’t a total waste, but you sure are wasteful. We love these recycled doors that also served as the escort card display for guests! Get creative + save!

Instead of endless and wasteful cocktail napkins, invest in inexpensive koozies, they keep your brew cold and cut down on waste!

Menu cards can be wasteful, take a different route and write the dinner menu on a chalkboard and place it out during cocktail hour and at the entrance of your reception, so guests can get the opportunity to know what deliciousness is coming their way!

Kids coming? Don’t buy out the target section with endless coloring books, board games, playing cards and more, instead put out lawn games for them to enjoy in the moment and for you to enjoy in the future!

Earth Day – Eco Friendly Wedding Tips

April 21, 2015

With the incredible importance of keeping our Earth in tip top condition these days, we thought we could provide you with some eco- friendly wedding tips today!

  1. When thinking of your invitations don’t rule out forgoing the paper and sticking to electronic invitations. Not only will you save an exciting amount of money, you’ll forgo the waste since guests won’t be throwing any paper away. If you’re truly set on paper invitations, make sure to look into recycled options. There are numerous options for wedding invitations that use beautiful reused paper materials.

  1. Planning your wedding at a local museum or art gallery that donates funds to a good cause is an easy eco-friendly way to utilize your venue space. If you’re thinking of planning an outdoor wedding, look up places that utilize the natural beauty of the space such as a garden or the ocean.

3. Eco-friendly rings are a sure thing to have for green weddings. Using a jeweler who uses fair-labor stones rather than blood-diamonds is a great way to keep your wedding eco-friendly. Do your research on the stone’s origins when ring shopping.

  1. It’s a no brainer that when planning your green wedding you should plan on having organic food on your menu. Organic food cuts out the pesticides used on so many foods these days and as always the DW team says supporting local vendors supports to local economy!

Time For A Cool Down

April 17, 2015

Finalizing last minute details for a summer wedding? Don’t forget a sweet cool-down treat to pass as guests are getting their boogie on! The light and refreshing late night snack is the perfect way to end the night. Some of our favorites are cocktail ice creams or passed mini root beer floats!
