Deep, elegant purple

I'm seeing so much purple from my brides this year. Deep eggplant purple, bright vivid purple.. even, as one bride put it.. barney purple! Purple is so elegant and can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood.  I love pairing purple with champagne or gold for some added sparkle.

Couture Shoes! and on sale!

I love the thoughtful little details of weddings.  Gorgeous shoes are a perfect example of this. How many people will actually see your feet on your wedding day? Not many, right? But, for those that happen to glance at your feet (and for you!) fabulous shoes are a lovely accessory. 

Right now Zappos is having an awesome sale on their couture collection.  Save on Giuseppe Zanotti, Kate Spade, Cesare Paciotti, Ellie Tahari... the list goes on.  Go see!
