Masquerade Themed Wedding

It is always a great idea to come up with a fun theme for your wedding to create a unique vibe for your special day. As Halloween is right around the corner and many brides have their fall wedding happening so close to such a fun holiday. Who doesn't love a good costume party! A masquerade themed wedding allows you to combine the fun of costumes and mystery of wearing masks as well as that classy vibe of a Venetian masquerade ball. The best part is there are so many options on where you can take the style of decor, all black and white, classic Venetian,  or 1920's. There are also a lot of different masks out there for the wedding party and wedding couple as well. This website has a great selection of wedding masquerade masks. It will also give your guests a chance to show some creativity in how they match their mask to their outfits and there are also several nice couples masks out there. Even amazon has a large selection of masks. Another great idea is to have a big basket of masks available for your guests to choose as they arrive also.

These are somee of my favorite bridal masks. It is nice that it is on a stick so you have the choice to hold it up for pictures but not have it ruin your nice hair and make-up.

We cannot wait for Hillary & Aaron's wedding weekend, here is a sneak peak! Caribbean Catering, Blue Water Weddings and John Rudolph Designs will be creating a very unique and beautiful wedding this weekend. Hillary and Aaron of Chicago are having the wedding of their dreams this Friday.  Hillary was inspired by the inside/outside feel of a lavish dining atmosphere under the stars for her destination wedding here in the Florida Keys. We will create a sophisticated experience with romantic draping, soft lighting surrounded by a shimmer of rose gold. Hanging florals and crystal chandeliers will evoke the royalty of an English Garden ambiance. The simple elegance and romance of this design will be a show stopper.

Wedding Trend: Bridal Cape

Love the idea of something trailing behind you as you walk down the aisle, but want something more unique than the traditional veil or train? Capes and caplets seem to be one of the most popular (and unexpected) trends from the most recent bridal runway season. I am looking forward to seeing some of these at our weddings soon, we love this look. Perfect for those with a flair for the dramatic.  Designers featured gowns with these lacey and romantic cover-ups in their latest wedding dress collections. And the adornment isn't just for fashion-forward brides looking to make a style statement on their big day — capes are a great alternative for ladies who need a modest layer for a religious ceremony but want the flexibility of removing that layer for the reception.

And while a blinged-out, full-length layer is certainly glam, there's more subdued, sheer lace caplets out there, too.

Here, are few beautiful capes we have found, take a look. We certainly hope this runway-inspired trend continues to pop up in the wedding world!

New Desserts!

One trend going on right now in weddings is the dessert display. Traditionally dessert at a wedding is, of course, wedding cake.  A growing trend in weddings this year is to offer your guests a sweet treat in the form of a stunning dessert display at your wedding. Cupcake displays were big last year, but dessert displays will be the big treat for guests this year, focusing more on cookies, specialty desserts, and of course, a wedding cake or two! With so many different tasty options out there, it may be hard to decide what to offer for your guests’ indulgence. With this trend picking up, we have just added some new dessert options to our menu.

DIY Beach Wedding Ideas

Many of our brides these days do at least some of their wedding details DIY, or do it yourself. It's a great way to save a little money when costs can add up quick. It can also give your wedding details a personal touch and sentimental value for you and your partner. I have recently discovered a new and amazing craft product, Japanese Washi Tape. This amazing invention can be used for so many things.  If you haven't heard of it before, get ready for your obsession to begin! The best way to describe washi tape is that it feels like masking tape — very, very pretty masking tape. It's made of paper, but is not as delicate as you would expect. Plus, it comes in patterns and designs that will make even the most dedicated crafters swoon and varying widths to allow you to create some fun and intricate washi tape designs.Here are a few cute projects using Washi tape for a DIY Beach Wedding. Check out these easy to make washi tape centerpieces.

This groom's cake got lots of sports media attention after twitter leaks from the groom's buddies. This couple are both avid football fans of their opposing alma maters. The bride had a little trick up her sleeve. Inside the Alabama cake, she had the baker make the cake inside in gators colors! The groom was shocked and word spread fast.
