Traditions or Superstition?

Its fun to see how creative the bride and groom get when they are planning their wedding. There is not one wedding that they are all exactly the same. Everyone has their own style and personality and that always stands out in their wedding.
So interesting right? I am going to tell you about all the different traditions and superstitions. You will be surprised at least i was surprised when i was doing some researching.
1. Hey did you know that brides, tuck a sugar cube into your glove, according to Greek culture, the sugar will sweeten your union.2.  Very interesting, in English tradition, Wednesday is considered the "best day" to marry, although Monday is for wealth and Tuesday is for health3. In Holland, a pine tree is planted outside the newlyweds' home as a symbol of fertility and luck.4. A Swedish bride puts a silver coin from her father and a gold coin from her mother in each shoe to ensure that she'll never do without. 5. For good luck, Egyptian women pinch the bride on her wedding day. Ouch!I am going to keep doing research on this, because i want to know MORE! You should do the same. Look at this site its one of my favorites so far! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/the-knot/50-wedding-traditions-and_b_3901136.html

How are you going to ask your girls to be part of the big day?

I think its a great idea to ask your girls in a cute way to be one of your bridesmaids. I also think its something that is memorable for you and them. Something that is thoughtful. I have thought of a couple of ideas, you can take them or leave them. But maybe it will get your mind rollin', if you know what i mean..Okay, seriously though here are some neat ideas. 
1. Do you have a girlfriend that is a coffee lover? Make a mug!
2. Wine not? Change a lable on her favorite bottle of wine and make it your own
3.Monogrammed jewelry that they can wear in the wedding!
4. Make them a kit of all the stuff they are going to be needing while getting ready before the wedding.
5. Is country your kind of thang? Bye each girl boots for them to wear on the big day!

Hopefully you will get inspired by these ideas or maybe you take them and turn it into reality. Goodluck!

How sweet it is

Love and Dessert.

It is so sweet. Its delicious, lovely, mouth watering, i cant get enough of it!
Tradition: A wedding cake, its the center piece. Its supposed to be. 
Always new wedding cake ideas are trending. 

I am a Pastry Chef, i am actually currently finishing up school and about to go out onto my externship. One of the main reasons of coming to school was to do wedding cakes, i made my very first wedding cake it was hard, fun and so rewarding in the end. Wedding cakes are my love, my true love...Just kidding but i really do love to make them because the finished product is always so rewarding specially when you give it the couple. Yes, sometimes it doesn't turn out how you like or how they like, but that what you learn from. 

What about not having the traditional wedding cake and having pies, cupcakes, actual cheese cakes like liget cheese rounds and pairing it with some nice wine for dessert. Why not? What the hell? If you dont have that big of a sweet tooth and your a cheese lover then DO IT! no one is stopping you!

Share me your ideas on traditional wedding cakes or your favorite type of dessert to have at a wedding? 

Lets get to the good part


So many ideas on what to feed your guests. You can feed them in a way that is has a nice presentation but still keeping it affordable and classy. If you follow those rules you will be golden! 
#1: I know you probably think i am a little cray cray for saying this but you need to think of a meal that you will serve that wont give you the burps and farts...
#2: You still want it to look presentable when you plate it, not to messy! 
#3: The food you serve should be pretty simple but still full of flavor
#4: Be creative, your guests like that

money, money, money...chaching!

Traditional the brides family is who pays for the wedding. Sometimes we have upside down family traditions and the bride and the grooms family help pay for it together, or if it doesn't work like that then it is actually the couple that pays for their wedding and honeymoon.

Did you even think about maybe they just walking to the court house and getting married right then and there. Hey, I have nothing wrong with that, as long as its for the right reasons.

I think if it is all for the right reasons then i say why not. If you are the kind of couple that really isn't into he whole "party and invite tons of people" then heck ya I give all props to you. Because if i was in your position I couldn't do it just because i want basically the whole world to be part of my day, not really, but kind of! 

Just because its that time of year!

Its my favorite time of the year!

FALL. Holidays. Cold weather. Snuggling. Apple Cider. Rain. Scarfs. Leaves, lots of them. Pumpkin. Pumpkin, oh wait did I say pumpkin? Campfires. S'mores. Uggs. Tons and tons of layers of clothes. Stuffing, sweet potatoes. Delicious food. Oh and wedding season!

My favorite season is fall if you haven't already found that out. I love it too much. This is my personal favorite season for wedding planning, just because its SO beautiful. So many pretty places to get married. So many cute decorations, flowers, pictures, weather, color schemes are to die for, really yummy seasonal food options, everything is just perfect! 

What is your favorite season? Tell me why its your favorite.

How do you feel about themed weddings?

I personally think they are great. Why not have super hero themed wedding? Or a beauty in the beast wedding? Or even whimsical fairy tale wedding? 

Whats wrong with having a little fun and twisting things up, its a day that you will remember for the rest of life and it only it happens once, make it fun! I know a friend that did a super hero themed with still keeping it classy and super cute. Her wedding turned out amazing, specially her pictures. They incorporated the super hero themed in a simple easy way. Definitely wasn't over the top, her and her husband did a great job.

Beauty in the Beast wedding, no joke. One of my high school friends literally had a beauty and the beast wedding. They were both really into Disney and so they not only had their wedding at the happiest place on earth but she made the entire event based on Beauty and the Beast.

Whimsical fairy tale wedding? Yes, please. Ball gown, glitter, slick blacked out tux diamonds a pearls a glass shoe.., sounds like a magical day to me.
All these weddings are special, specially to the couple because this is where the start there forever together.
