Whether you are saying I do solo or in front of 50 of your closest friends and family, when you are barefoot, staring into the eyes of the person you are about to share the rest of your life with, the moment is nothing short of magical.
The Hollywood Wedding
The glitz and glamour of Hollywood is inspirational to many. Bright red lips, perfectly coiffed hair, and long flowing, train wedding dresses. Couples may choose only to add certain elements of Hollywood to their wedding, like hosting a black tie affair or go all out, decked out in a 50s theme complete with top hats and all!
The Color Wedding
We all know the traditional color of a wedding is white. But there are many colors to choose from that can be added to a wedding to brighten and make your day stand out. Popular theme colors are black and white, lavender, pink, red and white, and gold. Dont shy away from color. Color can provide coordination among the decorations, the guests and/or the people participating in the wedding. Color has the ability to add excitement into an otherwise traditional function.

Fairytale weddings are fun, whimsical and stunningly beautiful. And a fairytale wedding would not be complete without tight bodices, flowing skirts of ball gown wedding dresses, that would be the envy of any fairytale princess.
