Remember, Jenna, the phenomenal calligrapher...and bride-to-be? Well, she has friends in high places, that she has shared her wedding theme & gown inspirations with. Here's a sneak peek. I adore the not-to-girly but oh-so feminine pink colour theme that is subtly laced throughout. And who said that you can't have fun with serious subject matter? From the whimsical carnival theme {tickets, balloons, hand dipped soft ice cream, juggler & cotton candy} to the sweet sensational delights {of tulle, candy, ribbons, polka dots, lace & pearls} this event promises to have lots of light-hearted fun...the Grown & Sexy way!!!
I am soooo there!!

Looking for a new 'do to complement that perfect gown? Not sure if you want to wear it swept up into that beautiful french roll or to cut it into a sassy bob? Although shoulder length plus hair has many advantages {can we say, 'this stuff is dirty and I just don't know what to do with it?...*light bulb moment... a chignon or french roll! that's the ticket'}, short and closed crop speaks volumes.

A short cropped style, like those above, says that you are NOT your hair. Short coifs loudly announce that , 'I am sassy, bold and chic'! Short cuts are just plain classic.

What do you think? I'd like to hear from you...short and sassy or long and luxe?
