The holidays are here and I have to admit, it’s one of my favorite times of the year.  All the decorations, campy holiday tunes, snuggling up in front of the fireplace. This is the season for good cheer, great friends and family, and fabulous cocktails.  I wish you and yours a wonderful, safe and joyful holiday season














I love the texture and visual interest of this design.  The black elements take on a modern contemporary twist and the softness of the blush and ivory roses lends a romantic feel to the room.


He finally popped the question and now everything bridal is front and center.  What is the first thing you should do? Well besides sharing the good news with your friends, family and co-workers, you need to sit down and figure out the financial aspects of the wedding…..yes, the budget.

Creating the budget first, before you even start shopping or formulating your dream ideas will help you maximize your time and effort.  Smart brides that are armed with a clear sense of their finances or Daddy’s encounter much less stress as the planning process begins.

I always advise my brides to include everything in their budget, even if they say “Aunt Sue is paying for my dress.” What happens if circumstances change for Aunt Sue and she’s no longer able to keep her generous offer? Now you may find yourself scrambling to come up with the cash to buy your dress.  If it was included in the budget to begin with, you’re already covered, stress eliminated.

Be Fabulous,
