Thank You Note From Our Bride, Mackenzie!

We just love these pictures of our bride, Mackenzie! We received these pictures along with this wonderful note from her mom, Julie: "I wanted to thank you for helping us choose the perfect wedding gown and belt for Kenzie. She looked beautiful and felt so special in it. The headpiece you made added the perfect touch. It all suited Kenzie's personality to a T. Also thank you for assisting the girls in picking out the bridesmaids dresses. And for accommodating our requests in... tailoring the dresses for Sarah and Katie. We were all so pleased with how they fit. You and your assistant were a pleasure to work with and made our experience pleasurable and fun and not stressful. Your shop is lovely and you were able to give Kenzie your undivided attention without making her feel rushed which is so helpful for an anxious bride. I have already recommended you to others and will continue to do so in the future."

Tip for Tuesday - Impress your guests with wedding favors they'll actually use!

Think about customizing a pack of cards, bar of soap, bottle stoppers, chap sticks or wine glasses for your guests to take home. Nothing like a Mr. & Mrs. goblet to cheers many happy years!

Cutting the cake together as bride and groom is a very famous American tradition. It has been said that this is to signify them helping each other to have a sweet life. However, don't be afraid to give this tradition a modern twist! There isn't anything a slice of pizza can't fix!

Sparklers are such a fun prop for both you and your guests to use as soon as the sun goes down. You can hand them out to guests as they wave goodbye and you take off from the reception. Make sure your photographer gets some good shots with them too!

We found this on Pinterest and just could not resist! Write love letters to each other and place them in a box with a bottle of wine to be nailed shut at your wedding. When you have your first fight, open it up, pour the wine, read your letters in separate corners and remember what it's all about!
