My two FAVOURITE things are Oprah and Etsy. It’s my guilty pleasure. I am sad that Oprah is over however thought I would still post some pictures from that episode.
 
 Just when you thought you couldn’t afford that Vera Wang wedding dress. Guess again. Great news for the couple who don’t have the deep pockets to splurge on a couture gown. 11 new affordably priced dresses called White by Vera Wang. Ranging from $600-$1500 US. So affordable, you may need two. David’s Bridal does carry the new modest priced collection. It hit their stores earlier this spring.

Must have Wedding Day Survival Kit

On wedding days I carry a LARGE emergency kit that has everything that I, the couple, bridal party or family may need. Everything from double sided tape to a portable steamer – no detail is missed. The Wedding Day Survival kit is the next best thing if you don’t have a wedding planner or day of coordinator who carries their own emergency kit on your big day.

This emergency kit will have you breathing a sigh of relief. Take on your wedding day in style and a whole host of potential emergencies with confidence. This chic, reusable train case contains 30 must-have items to keep your day running smoothly. You will be able to tackle any last minute fiasco- including wardrobe malfunctions- with this trusty case on hand. Topped with a white satin ribbon and a novelty diamond ring, this kit makes a perfect and thoughtful shower gift.

Light on your feet? Shoes for every bridal budget

I LOVE shoes. I was a 3 shoe gal myself and if I could I would have bought 10 pairs for my big day.After all, you can never have too many shoes. I have seen many different kinds of bridal shoes and I love when brides do something unique and different. For example: 3 red shoesCheck out the red sequin shoes the whole bridal party wore for this wedding? Very fun. The bride loves red and wanted to wear red shoes and incorporate her favourite color.Also great for formal pictures and a nice unique touch.Also a good idea for “something blue” if you can’t figure out how to have that “something blue” item and you want to stick to tradition, Why not try some dazzling blue numbers on your feet?

Enclosed are some beautiful shoes for all budgets. Not everyone can afford the Manolos however with so many companies making bridal shoes, you can easily find one or 5 pairs that fits your budget. After all, it’s so hard to pick just one.
