|Mini Palm Plant Wedding Favors- $3.95I just found these mini palm tree wedding favors available at one of my very favorite wedding supplies shops. Not only are they perfect for beach, outdoor, spring and summer weddings, bu they are also perfect wedding favors for a green wedding since you will be giving out plants which are good for the earth and the air.
I absolutely love these favors because everyone loves plants, even if they have trouble keeping them alive. For the people who can keep them alive, they’ll always remember your wedding when they look at their mini palm tree wedding favor and remember how much fun they had there. Giving out the mini palm tree wedding favors is also fun to do and even more fun if you keep a couple of them for yourself.
By keeping them for yourself, you not only get to watch it grow just like your marriage, but you can take the palm if you like in the right area and eventually plant it outside and watch as it grows. Every time you look at it you will remember your wedding and how much you love your husband or wife. The mini palm tree wedding favor is also great because you can use it to remember your anniversary, feel close to your husband or wife if he or she is on a business trip and you miss them and because they are fun and unique gifts that you can share with your guests.
Not everyone likes plants, but they will keep these and plant them after the wedding or put them in a pot so that they can grow because they want to remember your wedding and it is also a fun favor that will help to liven up anyone’s apartment or house. That is why I love these mini palm tree wedding favors for gifts for your guests. They not only get something for their home, but you are doing something that I think is eco-friendly by helping people plant trees and they look great in your home.

Ok, I had a couple of wines over the last couple days that were above and beyond amazing. They were also absolutely perfect for spring and summer weddings. Neither of them were heavy or thick, neither were over powering, but both of them had so much flavor, taste, great body and color and amazing aromas. They also had about the perfect kick alcohol wise to keep you standing but also give you enough courage to go out on the dance floor and shake your booty.
Now, even if you normally don’t like chardonnays or cabarnets, you have to try these two. Not only are they amazing, but they are perfect for people with all pallets and tastes and can match just about any meal from Chicken to Steak to Fondue. Anyways, here are my two favorite wine picks for Spring and Summer weddings. (Even though Stefano Farina’s Barolos didn’t make it on this list, they were a very close call for the red choice. The second runner up for whites was an amazing sauvignon blanc, but they also ran out of the wine so it is almost impossible to get so I didn’t include it.)
This is the Edna Valley Chardonnay 2006. It comes in a yellow tinted bottle and the foil around the top is a nice spring and summer yellow to tie into the wedding season.
The wine is an amazing chardonnay and unlike most chardonnays, the Edna Valley Vineyards Chardonnay from 2006 first seems like it is going to be a medium to heavy body, but when you drink it and taste it going down your throat, it is actually extremely light and flowery.
Although I didn’t taste it as a very oaky wine, my friend Mike definitaly commented on the oaky taste so I am assuming it is there for some people. The thing that we both loved about this 2006 Edna Valley Chardonnay though is the amazing vannila explosion that you get a few seconds after you swallow this chardonnay. The taste of this wine is soo explosive it is insane.
We served it chilled but also let is air for about 20 to 30 minutes. We then poured it into titanium high grade wine glasses that I got from one of the wine stores listed below and we also let the bottle sit out instead of keeping it chilling in an ice bucket.
It starts out with a nice chardonnay fruity flavor, I kept getting a hint of flowers and floral aromas when I was drinking it, but the most suprising and amazing thing about this chardonnay was the explosive vanilla flavor at the end.
It wasn’t overpowering or to strong, but it just comes out of no where and leaves this amazing taste in your mouth for a good few seconds. Even though I normally do not like vanilla wines, this one is a must have and the taste, flavor, body, legs, aromas, bottle design, etc… make it the most amazing and seriously perfect white wine and chardonnay for spring and summer weddings.
This is probably the most fabulous and amazing cabarnet I have ever had. Then again I am extremely partial to it since I have so many good memories that come with drinking the bottle.
The first time I had ever tried the Mayacamas Cabarnet I was with my Dad and we were finally talking after a long time of avoiding each other. This wine always reminds me of when we were talking and found out we have a ton of things in common like wine, cooking and we actually have a lot of the same hobbies.
I remember hanging out with my friends and opening a bottle of the Mayacamas Cabarnet, pouring it through my Decanter and letting it breath, then explaining why it is important and showing them what it tastes like before it breathes and then again after to try and convert them into whinos as well.
Anyways, this wine is extremely special to me and everyone who I have ever served the Mayacamas Cabarnet to has unanimously agreed it is one of the best cabarnets and reds that they have ever tasted. It is a bit on the pricey end for a large wedding, but if you don’t mind spending the extra money on a wine for your wedding, this is one to definitely consider, at least for the bridal party, groomsmen and your parents.
Anyways, below are a few wine stores that I have shopped from or at least seen some great wines at. Click any of the banners below and you’ll be taken to some fabulous online wine stores and also help to keep this blog alive so I can help to make more suggesstions to help you plan the perfect wedding.

Ok, it is freezing here in Washington DC right now. Way to cold to even go to brunch or the grocery store, heck it is even to cold to want to look out the window. The cold probably wouldn’t be as bad though if it wasn’t for all of the wind, so instead of writing and talking or typing about gorgeous winter weddings and how I love winter weddings, mainly because I do, and so instead of reminding myself of the thing I hate most about winter, that it is freezing outside, I wanted to talk about something warmer and a bit more full of life so I decided the perfect warmer thing to post about would be flowers and flower designs.
I can easily see glass fishbowls and glass vases coming back for centerpieces this spring and summer and love the thought of avoiding all dark red roses since those are completely 1980′s and 1990′s, and going with colored roses again to match the decorations, the seasons, sticking with all of the white flowers again, etc… I searched through a new vendor that I have never actually worked with or ordered from before, but I did fall in love with some of their designs for wedding bridal rose bouquets and wedding rose centerpiece designs.
Not only are their designs modern and gorgeous, but they also feel classic to me so they can match any type of wedding from classy and traditional to modern and minimalistic. The best part about the flowers at this new vendor is that their bridal bouquet design and rose centerpiece designs are completely affordable compared to other flower vendors so as we are pulling out of this crappy economy, this vendor should be one to definitely look at shopping with through this blog post so I get credit for the referral too (=0)) and so that you can leave a comment here about how your roses arrived and your experience with this flower vendor since I haven’t worked with them yet or before.
Anyways I love their designs from their sites and the way that it looks from the images I saw, and even though I have never used them before, I found them in my friend’s wedding network of Vendors so I am going to give a shot recommending them. Let me know how they worked with you and for your wedding if you go through them. I love their bridal bouquet designs and rose centerpiece designs and if you like something that works for everything modern to traditional, you’ll love these roses as well.
On another note, even though i am over red roses for weddings, save them for the bedroom and honeymoon, I am still including a couple of red rose bouquets because I know that even though I don’t like them, many people still do and one thing I always tell people that I give advice to with their weddings is that it isn’t my wedding. It isn’t your Mom’s wedding and it isn’t your friend’s wedding. It is your wedding and if something you have always wanted at your wedding is red roses, you should have them, just know that they may not work for everyone, but the only one that matters for your wedding is you and your partner. So even though I am not a fan of red roses for weddings, I am including a couple boquets for you in case you like them and want them for your wedding.

I cannot believe that it is already time for couples getting Married in the spring to start not only picking out their wedding favors, their wedding themes and wedding invitations, but it is also time for them to start getting their Save The Date Magnets ready to send out for Spring and Late Winter Weddings. Actually, late winter is sort of over for Save the Date Magnets, but at the same time, it is a bit to early for Summer Save the Date Magnets, but it is perfect for Spring Wedding Save the Date Magnets and when I was looking through one of my very favorite online vendors of wedding favors today, I came across these gorgeous and fun Spring and Summer Save the Date Magnets for weddings.
Not only do I love the simple and clean look and design of these save the date magnets, but I love the color selection you get, you cannot beat the price of these save the date magnets and the best part is that the company Beau-Coup is actually gay friendly, unlike MagnetStreetWeddings.com which does not want gay traffic or sales and because Gay People are not part of the MagnetStreetWeddings.com Marketing Plan. I actually have the email to prove it that they do not want me to write or promote them on a Gay Wedding site since gays and gay weddings are not part of the MagnetStreetWeddings.com Marketing Plan, which I am ok, just wanted you all to be aware that they are not a gay friendly company and do not want gay business.
Anyways, I lovese the Save the Date Magnets from Beau-Coup and with the seriously amazing price points on these magnets, you cannot beat them for your spring and summer weddings, and because Beau-Coup Wedding Favors features thousands of wedding favors, you can also get a small trinket to send with the Save the Date Magnet and even order your wedding favors while you’re there. Plus I just absolutely love shopping on the Beau-Coup wedding favors site for party and wedding favors for friends and family members weddings.
Anyways, I love these Save the Date Magnets and know that you will to….especially because of the cheap sale price you can find them at….they technically aren’t on sale but for the $1.80 a piece I saw today you cannot beat that price so they sort of are on sale.
