Who Needs An Etiquette Book????!!!!!GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!!!

See that book right there?
I wrote it.
Want to win one?
The basic principle of etiquette can be summed up simply as the idea of not offending, embarrassing, or upsetting others. While many questions of etiquette are simply a matter of common sense, other situations can be dealt with through consideration, communication, and a little kindness.

Marrying the complexities of wedding planning with the graciousness of etiquette is where The Everything Wedding Etiquette Book: From invites to thank you notes  - All you need to handle even the stickiest  situations with ease (Everything Series) comes in. This book will tell you how to solve contemporary etiquette dilemmas through practical advice while answering some of the most commonly asked wedding etiquette questions. Most importantly, this book recognizes that the world is an ever-changing place and that there are no hard and fast rules of etiquette anymore—what’s right for one bride may not be right for another. Many questions, especially those dealing with today’s complicated family dynamics, have no single correct answer; solutions to these types of dilemmas
depend upon the particulars of each situation.

Your Photos Last a Lifetime!

Confession...I hate...not despise my wedding photographs...
I was sick and my photographer was, uh, less that wonderful
{although he had a great reputation}...
I was also a really lame bride.
I fell for the slick talking, Beverly Hills hype. 
Maybe that is why I became a wedding planner...
I was tough and fair and honest when it came to the couple I worked with...
mainly so that they would not have the issues and problems I did
{which were totally avoidable}.
 BUT you do not have to have these issues with your photography!
First there are well qualified reputable photographers in all price ranges. 
You must do your homework though. 
OK, this is turning into a whole different post.
Later in the week I will dive into choosing a photographer
and my opinions, etc. on the matter.
For now, I wanted to introduce you to my friend Cynthia's blog.
Cynthia is the owner of A Legendary Affair in Manhattan Beach, CA.
This is one of the original wedding resource centers.
She rocks {and she has lots of cool articles and idea online...go visit}.

She recently had a post about
and I think it is ABSOLUTELY worth reading.
I encourage all you brides out there to check it out.

Happy Planning!

Perfectly Pink and Green

My two most favorite colors...E-V-E-R!
I am guessing it is because I NEVER had a pink room.
Yep, yellow Holly Hobbie it was for me!
I love color at weddings.
It evokes emotion and sets a tone.
Color doesn't have to be trendy...
you do not have to select what is
being touted in the magazines.
You do not have to settle.
Color reflects your style!
Choose what you like...
it is your wedding!

Anyway, I have been waiting for the right time to post this beautiful tablescape. 
I worked on this tablescape with some other talented designers as part of a magazine shoot. I have been meaning to post it for awhile, but I never quite got around to it {surprise! surprise!}, until now! It is perfect for today...or any day!

So, what do ya think?
What are your wedding colors?
It's a wedding blog party at Angelic Accents
