Chaussures de Fleurs

....{Flower Shoes}

{original post::special thanx}

These shoes are just perfect for a garden wedding. Yes, a bit avante garde, but you must admit,
these are brilliantly beautiful!
Come on ladies, you are the 'IT' factor of your event, the finale is just under foot.


What's behind you...

If your special gown has you bearing you back, be sure to pay even closer attention to detail.
Be certain that the fabric lies smoothly against your skin and that any fastening accessories are not twisted, gathering, gapping or worst yet, in ill-repair. Be certain that undergarments are not raring their pretty little heads, and that they are appropriate for the gown's fit.

Most of all, take time in the months before your special day to get your back & back-side in tip-top, lean mean shape. Supplementing regular trips to the gym for that extra cardio with a well-rounded back & glute routine, will assure that the important assets that follow you, will leave your guests in awe of the backside of your dress, and envious of the body that fills it in.

Contain it....

{for more info, click on the picture}

If you are having out-of-town {AKA-OOT} arriving for your big day, put an instant smile on their faces with a gift bag placed in the hotel room for each of them. Make the items inside reflect your theme or something special about you and your future husband.

While you are making a list of those special filler items, don't forget the first impression starts with the container that you chose to hold all of those special items.

Above are a few vessels that, not only reflect your style, but are vessels that can take on other functional duties when all of the goodies have been used. All the while relaying to your guests,
that they are very special'.


{Inspiration}...Marlena Dietriech

The look--clean,not fussy, all lady. Even the seemingly over plucked eyebrows get a nod. The coiff, every strand in place & defiant of all weather conditions. The pout, soft & crisp...loving the mat colour. And you have to love the soft, mysterious eyes bedecked by well-placed full yet wispy eyelashes.
For your special day, you may not want this look {I can't imagine why not}, but you definitely want this 'total package' look when you are presented as 'The Mrs' to the world.
