Will You Marry Me?

Every little girl grows up dreaming to hear the words "Will You Marry Me?"

They dream of the dress, the ring and who they will marry. I myself have always been a HUGE fan of jewelry. If you ask my husband he would say I have enough to pass down to the next 10 generations or so. But hey, some women collect shoes and I collect jewelry......okay, okay, I collect shoes too, but I wouldn't be a woman if I didn't :)

There are so many options out there for engagement rings....types of gold, setting, stones....but the trend of colored stones is really growing. I myself have a setting full of diamonds, but when my sister got married a few years ago she chose an Alexandrite from her center stone. Before then, I never really thought about adding color to my wedding ring. Now, I kind of wish I did....(hint, hint Daniel)

I found some beautiful pictures of different setting combinations of metals and stones. The options are endless. So, when hearing the words "Will You Marry Me?", what color ring do you see in your furture?

Colored Crinolines....Bold and Beautiful!

Most people think that color crinolines are a new rend this year. Although the trend is growing in 2011, the colored crinolines have been used throughout the decades as styles get recycled.

A touch of color may not be for everyone, but offers a playful way to show your true colors on your wedding day. From soft pastels to bold hues, brides to bridesmaids, choosing colored crinolines can turn your wedding into something BOLD and BEAUTIFUL.

Who could forget some of our great movie history like "Gone with the Wind", where some of the first colored crinolines made their debutes...

Check out some of these bold and beautiful brides......LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Same Place...New Space!

Happy Monday!!

For those of you who don't know I am part of a group called Wedd Stl. We are a one stop shop for all your wedding needs. We are located in Webster Groves in a wonderful "home-like" setting. I was offered a bigger space down the hall in a different room and was super excited to change it up a bit!

The space is larger, giving me more room for display, fittings and creativity. I got everything moved in last week and it feels like home already!

Here are a few pics of my new space. Still have a few minor things to add, but overall I am very happy with my cozy office!
