I am absolutely obsessed with this free form Pearl Jewelry for Weddings from Waxing poetic. Not only are free form pearl jewelry for weddings one of the hottest trends, they are absolutely gorgeous and can match virtually every type of wedding and theme. The thing about using free form pearl jewelry is that it is modern but classic at the same time. You have the gorgeous white pearls which are timeless and you also have a free forming feature. What I love about the waxing poetic pearl jewelry for weddings is that they use three rings which could represent anything from the past, present and future to a more symbolic linking of two people into one. Since it is also pearls and rings it fits perfectly into any wedding ceremony and outfit.
Free form pearl wedding jewelry when done right will look like it is very conservative but also modern and fun. The necklace and bracelet from waxing poetic are absolutely ideal for weddings because they are completely symbolic. You can add whatever twist you want to the story behind the rings and the pearls and you can also style them to match any gown. If you haven’t picked out your pearl bracelet or necklace for the bride yet, I highly recommend you look at Waxing Poetic for your free form pearl wedding jewelry. They also carry a ton of fabulous and affordable styles that are perfect for bridesmaids, the mother of the bride and groom as well as some styles for any other guests who you need to buy something for. Click on any of the links or images in this post and you’ll be taken to their site where you can see their entire line of jewelry and gifts. They are one of my best kept secrets for brides and grooms and I have personally met them and gotten to try their jewelry on and I love it.

So I wasn’t sure what to post about so I went to one of my favorite favor stores called Beau-Coup.com and found these fabulous mini purse shaped bridal favor bags. Not only are they the perfect way to give out the bridal party favors, but if your bride is a diva, they also have flask keychains so that you can deal with her. I absolutely fell in love with the purse shaped bridal favor bags and thought that they would make a fun post for this Friday.
You can use the purse shaped favor bags for any type of event really from a sweet sixteen to a briday shower and even a baby shower if the baby is a girl. They are absolutely cute and adorable and I think that everyone at the party, especially if you have kids there will love getting them and playing with them. Anyways, here are three of my favorite purse shaped bridal favor bags.
mini purse shaped bridal favor bags
These are some of the cutest purse shaped bridal favor bags on earth. The best part is that they are actually useful since they are also manicure sets. Your guests will love the fun design and be able to fix their nails. Who doesn’t love something that is fashionable and functional at the same time. You can buy these fun purse shaped bridal favor manicure kits here.
purse hook bridal party favors
So I normally don’t like purse hooks for bridal parties or favors, but if you are doing purse shaped bridal party favors, purse hooks are the perfect way to let people know where they are sitting and also to hang their favors on. They can be used as a really cute way to help people find their seats and give them something to take home. You can buy these purse hooks here.
pink purse favor bags
These pink purse favor bags are absolutely fun and perfect for any party. Great for outdoor spring bridal showers or even baby showers if you are having a little girl. Everyone will love them and you can stuff them with anything from mints to chapsticks. These are a must have for any bridal or baby shower event. You can buy these fun pink purse shaped bridal shower favor bags here.
This is one of the most heartfelt gifts for the bride to be. This fabulous pearlized angel wings pin is elegantly presented at the top of a real feather and is also attached to a heavy stock card that comes complete with a fabulous and heartfelt poem printed on it. The angel wings are able to be pinned into the bride’s bouquet or you can even pin them inside the hem of the Bride’s gown as a reminder of the days blessings and as the something new. This is the perfect gift for the Bride from the Mother in Law.
Not only did I instantly fall in love with this but it stood out to me as the perfect accessory and gift for the bride. One thing that Mother in Laws always struggle with is what they should buy the bride for their wedding? The Mother of the Bride always or at least most of the time gives her family heirlooms and something borrowed and something blue, but I think that the Wedding Angel Wings pin from My Spiritual Wedding not only gives the Mother in Law the perfect chance to pitch in with something new (If the Mother of the Bride is ok with that), but the wedding angel wings pin is the perfect gift for her to give to her new Daughter in Law since it doesn’t have to be worn with the bride but can be placed inside the bouquet.
It is the perfect way for the Mother in Law to not only show the Bride that she loves and accepts her but it also lets the Bride know that she has her blessing to Marry her Son or Daughter and in Good Health and Good Faith. Angels are supposed to be able to look over and watch over and protect you and by the Mother in Law giving the bride the Wedding Angel Wings she is not only able to say this but able to do it in a meaningful way that will speaks more than words can to the Bride. There is nothing like the approval of the Mother in Law to marry her Son or Daughter and the Wedding Angel Wings Pin is the perfect way.
The Wedding Angel Wings Pin comes complete and ready to wear or place in the Bride’s bouquet, with a poem and rests on top of an actual feather. My Spiritual Weddings not only brings love into the Wedding but with their products like the Wedding Angel Wings Pin you cannot go wrong with them. I personally love the Wedding Angel Wings Pin as a gift for the Bride from the Bride’s new Mother in Law and I know that any Bride would love the Wedding Angel Wings Pin and know that it was given as a gift from the heart.
So I found out that my one friend who works for one of my favorite wedding vendors had parted ways with them and it kind of started my day out on a bad note. On a good note though he ended up going to work for a website that I had never heard of before called Waxing Poetic. I really didn’t get why I would promote or talk about a site called waxing poetic but I knew there had to be a reason that he would tell me to just take a look without saying another word or answering my questions. Not only did I take a look at the site but I was instantly inspired….I didn’t realize how well he knew me and my tastes.
Waxing Poetic is a site that sells modern styled jewelry with a very classic and somewhat antique twist. The first few products I found when searching the waxing poetic website were the pearl necklaces and pearl bracelets. Not only do I love how they are sort of dark and sort of emo goth looking but they are also classic and extremely classy looking. With the new lines of fall and winter wedding gowns coming out, I could only see these bracelets and necklaces being used.
The waxing poetic pearl jewelry is absolutely 100% perfect and amazing for fall and winter wedding jewelry. It is thick, darker, classic and antique. They blend into the outfits perfect and highlight your wedding bands and rings as well as your outfits and gowns. They can be used for bridesmaids gifts but also for the actual bride.
You can buy the smaller or the bracelets with fewer strands for the bridesmaids and the fuller jewelry for the bride and even get the longer necklaces for the Mother of the bride or Mother of the grooms. Either way this jewelry is an absolute must have for everyone for their weddings. If you look at almost any fall line or winter line, you are seeing dark colors, denim colors and the wedding gowns are using shadows and darker accents. That is what makes the waxing poetic pearl jewelry absolutely perfect for just about any fall or winter wedding and because they have classic antique looks they will be in style and in fashion for just about every year in the future.
It is very rare to find jewelry that can last multiple seasons but I think that Waxing Poetic has found the way to solve that issue. I love when people take antique and classic looks and make them modern, but also make them work and that is what Waxing poetic has done. Although I have never shopped there and have no need to shop there right now, I do love their designs and highly recommend you check their store out.
Three ring pearl wedding necklace
Waxing Poetic Free Form Pearl Wrap Necklace – $ 250.00
There is just something I love about the three ring pearl necklaces for weddings. They could mean anything from past, present and future all linked together to the two brides or two grooms or bride and groom becoming one with the white hoop in the middle or about a million other meanings. This is one of my favorite more modern styled pearl necklaces and can easily accent a more modern or metallic wedding dress.

I absolutely love their website and their jewelry.
This morning I woke up to a brand new infomercial on TV for another new body shaper. We have all seen the Slim ‘N Lift Body Shaper and we all know about Kymaro Body Shaper, we’ve all seen Spanx and Flexees but this one ended up being a little bit different. Instead of focusing 100% on comfort and avoiding the issues that many people have with body shapers, they jumped right in and decided to address what women and some men are really wishing they would do with a body shaper, make it work for the person wearing it.
The Secret Solutions Body Shaper is a brand new type of Body Shaper. The reason I am bringing it up on here is because I always recommend to brides that Body Shapers are the way to go if you ended up not being able to lose those last few pounds before your wedding. Normally I would say get a Slim ‘N Lift, that is the one I own and have worn a couple times on Halloween, but the Secret Solutions body shaper was designed for plus sized people and comes in all sizes from a medium to a 4X. That is what is beautiful about the Secret Solutions Body Shaper as seen on tv. It was made for plus sized people to be able to use and not for the size 6 who wants to be a 4 or size 2 who needs to be a 0. The Secret Solutions plus sized body shaper is the body shaper of the average woman.
Designed to help even plus sized ladies and some men (You’ll need to do what I did and cut out a spot for your man parts since it is technically a plus sized woman’s body shaper) be able to shrink down a little and be able to have a better look and shape about them instantly with the Secret Solutions Plus Sized Body Shaper As Seen On TV. So what makes as seen on tv plus sized body shaper different than other as seen on tv body shapers?
To start the Secret Solutions Body Shaper has specially designed diamond fabric patches sewn in throughout the body shaper over the stomach, on the hips and other problem areas to better help shape and fit you into the shaper. The Secret Solutions Plus Sized Body Shaper is also made of a breathable fabric to help prevent you from overheating and sweating up your body shaper so you don’t have to be as worried about sweat and odor all night. The thing I like most about the design of the Secret Solutions Body Shaper though is that they somehow managed to be able to design it to be seamless so you now have a plus sized body shaped that doesn’t have a seam so people won’t see the seams through your clothes. It’s like a company finally listened to people complaining and found out how to make an as seen on tv plus sized body shaper that works for the people who will be wearing them. Whats even better though is that if you are a woman who will be wearing this body shaper, the Secret Solutions body shaper allows women to be able to wear their own bras with it.
One complaint I am sure many woman have had, which is why they mentioned it a million times during the infomercial, is that certain other as seen on tv body shapers don’t leave room for your bra. Instead you have to wear their top or deal with annoying straps. The Secret Solutions body shaper addresses that issue and made it so that you have the freedom to wear your own bra with your plus sized body shaper. Not only will this new body shaper help to get you the shape you want to look, but because you get to wear your favorite bra with it you’ll also get to keep the girls looking great as well.
It is great to see that there is finally a body shaper out there that was designed to help make a woman feel more comfortable and designed with the complaints of other body shapers in mind. I do have to remind you though that body shapers are meant to be tight. They are pushing your fat in to help to reshape your body. If you are looking for a solution that isn’t tight and not full of pressure than body shapers are probably not for you and you may want to try cosmetic surgery. If you don’t mind feeling like you are wrapped tight to help you get a great looking shape almost instantly, then body shapers may be perfect for you. You will need a little practice getting in and out of them though.
If you have tried the new Secret Solution plus sized as seen on tv body shaper, please feel free to leave your comments below. I love this for weddings for brides that are not able to take off those last couple pounds or for the bride who just wants to smooth out their body and since the Secret Solutions is a full body shaper you also won’t have muffin tops like multiple pieced body shapers sometimes give you. The Secret Solutions plus sized body shaper looks like an awesome product and even though I don’t own one because I still have my slim n lift, I do want to hear how it works for all of you so please feel free to leave a comment below if you have tried one.
Last night I saw a commercial for a brand new infomercial product that helps to solve an old issue. The product is called Go Go Slippers and to be honest the solution is so simple that I am amazed no one had thought of them before. Go Go Slippers are metallic colored ballet slippers that come in gold, silver or black. They roll up neatly into a small bag that fits into your clutch or purse and are able to be slipped on and off during the night. You might be asking yourself why this is a solution to anything but in reality they are actually more like a dream come true to anyone who has ever had to wear high heels for a long period of time.
Ladies, Drag Queens, Pageant Models, Women and Girls who have gone to Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and everyone else who has ever had to wear high heels for long periods of time know how much high heels can hurt your feet. They have all also at one point or another removed their heels or wanted to remove their heels to give their feet a break but at the same time don’t want to have to put their feet on dirty floors or be seen without something that at least looks like a shoe if the photographer is around. That is why Go Go Slippers are such a genius idea to come up with. Gogo slippers are colored like three of the most popular colored formal wear high heels. You can buy gogo slippers in gold, silver or black and since they are ballet slippers they are not only comfortable but since they are small enough to roll up and squeeze into almost any bag you an casually slide off your heels when you’re sitting at a table, during a ceremony or in a lounge and not have to put your feet on a dirty floor or worry about snagging stockings on a nail or rough floor since the gogo slippers ballet slippers will be protecting your feet. Then when its time to get back up or go dancing you can easily slip off the gogo slippers and thn slip your high heels back on with your feet rested and feeling great again.
I cannot believe that no one had thought of using ballet shoes as a way to get to take a break from wearing high heels during formal events. The answer is so simple and high heels are something you always hear people that have to wear them complaining about. Whoever came up with Go Go Slippers was a genius in that they helped to come up with a seriously easy and affordable solution to help give your feet a break when you have to wear high heels for a long time. Since they also look like dress shoes or if you’re wearing a long gown you can even just leave your high heels to the side and keep your go go slippers or ballet slippers on all night while you dance with your partner or friends or just hang out with your friends. No one will know the difference if they are not starring and if your dress accidentally shows your feet for a quick second, since the go go slippers are colored like dress shoes no one will even notice if it is just a second.
Go Go slippers are an awesome idea and if for some reason you cannot find them for sale or don’t want to spend that much money on them, you can easily create your own gogo slippers at home. All you need to do is buy a few pairs of satin or silk or regular ballet slippers. Then you just need to buy the spray paint shoe polish in whatever color will match your outfits and spray the ballet shoes. Then when they dry use a fixative on them so they don’t stain everything and you now have comfortable dress show colored and styled ballet shoes to give your feet a break from having to wear high heels all night. Go Go Slippers are an awesome idea and the commercial was a great way for me to brainstorm how to help bring them to you all to help with your high heel foot pain issues. I saw gogo slippers for sale here but they may not be available for long and you had to preorder them so if you really want a pair and cannot find them anywhere, try making your own gogo slippers by spraying ballet shoes with metallic colored shoe polishes and fixatives to keep the color on them. I love gogo slippers and think that if you have ever had to have worn high heels for a long time you will love them too.
Ok when it comes to weddings both gay and straight, when a woman or a drag queen is involved it is all about the dress and hunny let me tell you, I was looking at RomanticGowns.com which is a new site I found and I found some of the most divafabulous, sex in the city, fabulocity styled wedding gowns on earth. Not only did romanticgowns.com find the most amazing selection of thousands of fabulous wedding dresses, but they became my store for 2010 wedding dresses for all seasons and here are my top ten picks for the best wedding dresses of 2010.

Ok to be honest each year there are a few gowns that I find that I think are timeless or will easily be able to carry over into the 2011 season and some of them into 2012 but with this years top ten wedding gowns list I actually think that some of these wedding gown designers actually were able to create a selection where most of them can be carried over to at least 2011 and even a few can be carried over to the 2012 season. I love these wedding gowns and know that you will love them as well and if you have never shopped for wedding gowns online, it’s kind of like shoes, read the return policy and what you’ll find is that it should not be scary at all and you still have your wedding gown fitted to fit perfect just like if you bought it in a retail store, the only difference is your selection is larger, you don’t have to worry about someone coming in the store and seeing you eye it up so they get it first and what is even better is that you can send the picture straight from this post by clicking the tweet button to all your friends on twitter and let them see your wedding dress to.

Even when they’re apart, since mother’s and daughters cannot and probably would not want to be together 24/7, these sterling silver Mother and Daughter bracelets will help to make sure that they know they are never far apart from each other. Pieces of the broken charm read “mother” and “daughter” and complete each other when you put the broken heart locket bracelet back together. These memory bracelets are adult sized bracelets that are finished with a fashionable toggle clasp and the child sized bracelets have a secure lobster clasp and come with a one inch extender chain to ensure a good fit. The Mother and Daughter Sterling Silver Memory Bracelets come with a complimentary polishing cloth that makes it easy to care for your jewelry and help to keep your sterling silver mother and daughter bracelet looking fabulous.
I found this site called Heart’s Treasure by a referral of a friend of mine. He runs a wedding marketing firm out of Boston Massachusetts with his partner and he fell in love with a bunch of the heartstreasure.com. Not only does heartstreasure.com carry an amazing selection of bracelets for just about every occasion from weddings and mother of the bride bracelets to flower girl bracelets to christenings to faith, purity, family, hope and love. Although Heartstreasure.com isn’t a merchant i would typically promote, since they seem a bit more religious than I like, when I saw the Hearts Treasure bracelets and the meaning behind the hearts treasure bracelets I had to share them.
I had to really think about promoting a more religious feeling site on my site about gay weddings, but when I thought about it, just because I am not the most religious person in the world doesn’t mean that there aren’t gay couples that are religious and parents of gay couples that aren’t religious so in order to include everyone on my blog I realized that regardless of my personal feelings or thoughts and because Hearts Treasure and heartstreasure.com has some fabulous bracelets and pretty fantastic sterling silver mother and daughter broken heart best friendship bracelets that I should share them with you all regardless of the religious feeling of their site.
I actually kind of really like the hearts treasure mother and daughter sterling silver best friends bracelets and know that you and your mother or your wife and her mother will love it to when you announce your engagement and while they are shopping and planning their wedding. It is also perfect for Step Mom’s to wear to bond with their Step Daughters and Mother in Laws to wear to bond with their new Daugther in Laws. There are a ton of ways to pull off a mother and daughter best friends bracelet and these sterling silver mother and daughter bracelets are the perfect ones to use and wear.
You can visit Hearts Treasure and HeartsTreasure.com by clicking here and not only buy this fabulous mother and daughter sterling silver best friends bracelet as well as look through and buy their other fabulous bracelets and jewelery.
Personalized Dance Floor Decal – $ 120.00
“Give your guests one more reason to dance the night away with these personalized dance floor decals. Each floor decal may be personalized with two names, a numeric date and a single initial monogram.”
Ok I am a complete Diva when it comes to weddings and a complete Bridezilla for the common or shy Brides who are a bit to scared to demand the perfect night for their Weddings. I also love to have the stage when I go to a karaoke night and when its time to dance you need to get out of my way. If you are like me and know that on your wedding night you need to have the spotlight to show that this is your night and your microphone and even more important your dancefloor, there is no better way to mark your dance floor then ordering a large monogrammed dancefloor decal to help you show off your dancefloor and let everyone know to keep off your spot.
Ok that was a bit to dramatic, even for me but I am completely worked up after tonight’s episode of Glee with Kurt’s Dad’s speech to Fin about why he cannot call things gay or faggy and why it is wrong I am being a complete Diva. God, I think it is completely my time of the month, if guys have that and we know gay men definitely do, so in being dramatic and in the words of Bette Midler get off of my runway, I think that this monogrammed dancefloor decal is the perfect way to announce that it is your dancefloor and really actually adds that extra touch to your wedding that you need.
I love the dancefloor decals with the bride and groom, groom and groom or bride and brides names on them (yup I’m giving straight people a chance to have a decal in this post because I went off about gay rights and Kurt’s Dad’s speech on Glee tonight so I figured I shouldn’t discriminate against straight couples for this post either) and think that if you need that one extra thing for your wedding then having a dancefloor decal with you and your partner’s names on them is the absolute perfect additional thing to set your wedding apart from other weddings and show that it is your dancefloor.
So I had a really rough week this week and was really depressed. Not only did I do something stupid by letting things get to me but I almost let them get the best of me which is never a good thing to do. There are always going to be bad weeks but if you let them get to you then your life is going to be miserable and there is absolutely no reason at all to ever have to feel horrible. I ended up talking to a friend of mine who really helped to cheer me up.
He invited me out to the clubs with his friends and even though I am not going to go, it still really made me feel great to know that I still have friends and friends that care about me. I think that for me tonight that although clubbing and being around friends would be very fun and relaxing, sometimes you need something else besides vodka and people. Sometimes you just need some junk food, a comfortable robe or pajamas and some candles and wine. I would like to remind everyone that wine and candles don’t mix well since candles use fire and wine causes drunkeness and can burn down your apartment or house, but with supervision and moderation it can be extremely relaxing and calming.
One thing that no matter what can make an amazing gift for someone are candles. Scented candles aren’t always the best thing to give unless you know exactly what scents the person likes but regular candles, designer candles and floating candle bowls as long as you buy the bowl and a larger gift set to me aren’t always the best gift to get when you first get them, but on days like tonight when you are down and just want to relax you really appreciate the candle gifts and are thankful that you have them so that you can light them, enjoy a glass of wine and just completely put the week behind you.
Candles and Candle Gifts are always a perfect gift in my opinion for people that already have everything else they need and I highly encourage you to shop for candles online if you need to buy a gift for someone. Not only will they thank you when they finally find the right night to use them, whether they need to relax or want to set a romantic mood for their partner, but they will also love them when they finally use your candle gift. Not to mention that if anyone needs candles to help them relax it is the bride and the bridemaids who have to deal with her so if you are a bride and reading this post I highly recommend you buy some sort of random relaxation candles or candle gifts for your bridesmaids. Trust me, if you’re a bridezilla they’ll need it.
You can order candle gifts from tons of stores online and retail stores, but I came across this random site that has candle gifts and candle coupons available so I wanted to share it with you. Click here to buy candle gifts and use the coupon from the top of the post to save on candle gifts.
