You know that I LOVE me some David Tutera. Not only is he ridiculously handsome, he is a brilliant wedding planner and his reality series My Fair Wedding on WETV is a fabulous show full of touching moments and fabulous events.
I DVR all of his episodes, but his new book helps me literally read into the magic behind… well, the magic. Tutera’s book chooses 10 of the most memorable weddings from the first three seasons of the show and allows readers an intimate look behind the scenes, detailing the challenges that were conquered, and it includes testimonials from the brides themselves, some of which will bring tears to your eyes. Along with the profiles, Tutera offers practical advice on fashion, decor, transportation, the ceremony and many other aspects of wedding planning.
Oh, and needless to say, the book is filled with gorgeous photographs.
Definitely a must-read for brides looking for inspiration-both with wedding details and a positive outlook on wedding planning.

In years’ past, bouquets that were made of anything but authentic blooms were considered tacky and tasteless. But, with a bit of innovation and creativity, paper bouquets have become a welcome sight at weddings. In fact, paper details of all sorts, such as napkin rings and hanging poms, are showing up at receptions with styles ranging from homespun to whimsical elegance. This economical option is best suited for the more crafty among us (or at least those of us with crafty friends) who want to make the seeming ordinary material of tissue paper and turn it into something spectacular.

This RealSimple.com beauty article is meant to give women step-by-step makeup ideas for a night out on the town. Even so, I think that these looks can transfer nicely into the big day for a stylish bride or her ‘maids.
After all, I love a bold lip color going down the aisle could make a huge impact.
