Wedding Wisdom: Fiance vs Fiancee

Hello Socialite Brides to be,

Just wanted to share a quick tip with you those of you that just became engaged. You will see fiance and fiancee plenty of times now that you've got your ring but here's something you might not now. Check this out.

About fiance vs fiancee
If all goes well a man will marry his fiancee and if all goes well a woman will marry her fiance. Both fiancee and fiance is a person one is bethroted to. The extra 'e' in the end depends on the gender: if you are a girl, you would be a man's fiancee.

Happy planning everyone!

Blissfully,

PS Sighting: Google for Weddings

0 comments
Hello My Socialite Brides,

I hope planning has been a breeze for those of you that have already started and I hope that this is helpful for anyone that has just started. As I was searching through my emails the other day I came across this little gem. Ladies, let me introduce you to Google for Weddings.


Google is at it again and I must tip my hat to them. Through Google for Weddings you can create your own Wedding site, use Picnik to edit photos and create some of your wedding materials, use Google docs to help you with all your planning documents, and share your photos from all your wedding activities with Picasa. This is an amazing little bundle.

Google sites teamed up with renowned wedding planner and destination expect Michelle Rago to create the beautiful collection of themes you'll find. Use Google Sites to share information about your wedding, your engagement story, and anything else you can think of.



Picnik has coordinating themes so you can edit your photos and create engagement announcements, save-the-dates, and plenty of other fun projects.



Google Docs has all the files you need to help keep you organized and stress free through your wedding planning process. You'll find docs for your address book, guest list, budget planner, seating chart and much more.



Picasa Web Albums will allow you to gather and organize all your photos. Are you trying to decide on bridesmaid dresses? Take pictures of all of the options and share them with the team. Need help picking the perfect dancing shoes to go with your reception dress? Organize your top picks here. Everyone needs a digital Look Book.



To see all the cool features check out Google for Weddings.

Happy Planning!

Wedding Wisdom: Bringing the Family Together

0 comments

Hello My Socialite Brides,

You have spent so much time planning this wonderful wedding day and with all the focus on making sure everything goes according to plan you never realize that you missed spending time with the family and friends that made your day possible. It all goes by so quickly but you want to remember this moment and the people you spent it with for the rest of your life. Here’s your solution, extend your wedding weekend a little bit with these ideas.

Are you a night owl? Have an after party after the official reception. Invite everyone back to the hotel where you’ll be staying and have a little bar party at the hotel bar. Find out if the bar will allow you to have pizza delivered and just hang out at the bar with your family and friends and really let your hair down. We’ll even let you go change into something truly comfortable. Everyone knows you’re the new Mr. and Mrs. so you can lose the formal gear.





Are you more of a morning person? How about a brunch the morning after your wedding with your newly bound family? This will not only give you a chance to spend time with your family now that the big day is out of the way but it will also give your families a chance to talk some more without the loud music and extra guests.






Remember, your wedding is one day but your marriage is the rest of your life so why not start the memories as soon as possible with your new family.

Happy Planning!

Blissfully Yours,

Wedding Wednesday: Sweet Sweet Love

0 comments
Hello my Socialite Brides in Training,

I hope that you are having the time of your life right now planning you wedding and enjoying your engagement. I'm in a sweet mode today and am having a major craving for these new cupcakes by MMM Cupcakes so I thought today we would take about the current cake trends.



One of the first trends is a return to the classics. We had fun with all the cool and corky cakes but we are slowly but surely seeing a return to the sweet, classic, and romantic cakes. Shades of ivory, cream, and white are coming back into high demand among brides.


Another emerging trend is the use of fresh flowers vs. frosted flowers. It takes great talent to be able to create a flawless frosted flower but there is something about the smell, look, and feel of fresh flowers surrounding a wonderful crafted wedding cake. You will start to see cakes with fresh flowers between tiers to create a grand illusion even with the use of smaller cakes.




For the bride who wants a little shine (I try my best never to use the word "bling"), I have some great news for you. There is a new product on the market just for you...edible rhinestones! These little gems can be purchased or made by the bakery and will give you that sparkle you always envisioned at your wedding, and as an added perk, there is no need to remove them when its time to serve the cake since they are completely edible. Enjoy!
 


As for grooms' cakes, the southern tradition of the chocolate cake still holds true. Some still enjoy the traditional chocolate cake with the chocolate covered strawberries while others are opting for a cake that truly represents their personalities and interest.

No matter what, remember that it is and will always be your wedding day and as long as it reflects your style that's all that matters.

Happy Planning Brides!

Blissfully,
