The Perfect Shoe

You've imagined your wedding dress all your life, but what about your wedding shoes? Do you want a modern and stylish look? Instead of the traditional white satin shoes to wear with your wedding dress- Lets spice it up!
You can wear a shoe color that matches to your bridesmaid dresses, such as fuchsia, teal, silver, gold, red, yellow, purple or if you do want to stick with tradition and you want to wear “something blue” you can wear Manolo Blahnik Royal Blue shoes (Remember that infamous scene-These are the shoes that Carrie Bradshaw wore when tieing the knot with Mr Big). They will look perfect for your wedding pictures.
Don’t forget to break in your fabulous shoes before the wedding- wear them around the house so they can loosen up and you can dance the night away with your husband!

The Art of Calligraphy

Want to express your invitations with an elegant and personal look? Try calligraphy!
Whether if it is designing your wedding invitation or just addressing the guest envelops without using print mail labels- calligraphy adds both intimacy and sophistication. In addition, you can display a unique touch on your escort cards, place cards, menus, vows, wedding favors or guest books.
You may think that calligraphy services are expensive, however if you budget wisely your guest list-You can add that special touch to your wedding!
My calligrapher vendor Francesca Simon has been a calligrapher for about 30 years. Francesca has exquisite and innovative taste when it comes to her work of art. I had a meeting with her in Starbucks; she pulled out her calligraphy pen and a blank envelop readily available. She began to write on the envelope showing different examples of calligraphy (block, italic, & script). Amazing! It was fast, neat, and graceful!
She cares immensely to meet her clients’ needs. Please visit her blog to learn more about her services.
