Black wedding dress

Is black the next white?

When you think of wedding gowns,  a white or ivory dress comes to mind but recently designers such as Vera Wang have been experimenting with a bold alternative; black. Some may say it can look distinctly Gothic, therefore undermining love, while others may say it is a statement dress that everyone will remember.

Brides have been wearing white since the Victorian era so is it time for a new colour to be introduced? It will be interesting to see if this trend will reach local bridal boutiques or will be restricted to the cat walks.

Wedding “Mad Libs”

Mad Libs have always been popular in the USA as a fun way for children to learn about adjectives nouns and verbs by inserting them as appropriate – or as inappropriate – into a pre-written paragraph.

We thought this wedding Mad Lib would be a fun alternative to a guest book at receptions as a lasting, and amusing, memento of your guests. Leave them on the tables for guests to complete when they first sit down as they will act as a great icebreaker at the start of the meal.
