{Wedding Wednesday} The Ombre Trend in Weddings

Ombre... such an interesting word; the first time I heard about it; I didn't really know what it was and never heard of it. Then I started seeing more and more of the trend; in fashion, hair colors, nail polish, shoes, and weddings.

The ombre trend is where colors or tones shade into each other; from light to dark. It can also be called a classier version of tye die! When used in weddings, there are many possibilities; from dresses, invitations, flowers, and even the cake! This has quickly gained popularity as a trend in weddings and I'm liking it! So today's Wedding Wednesday, I'm going to share with you some inspiring photos of the ombre trend. Let me know what you think!

Hello Fall

Hello Fall, welcome to September! I'm personally starting to get excited about the new fall season. The weather is changing and much cooler now; which I LOVE! I haven't really thought about fall, but today's weather made me think about it. The temperature here in Georgia felt like the 60s today; so the windows were open and it was nice! 

It will be no time until it's cool enough to put on a sweater, see leaves fall, pick out some pumpkins, and eat some warm butternut squash soup!

What are your plans for the upcoming fall season?

"Wedding Wednesday" Gown Designer: Hayley Paige

I love EVERY detail of weddings; the cute little favors, the table settings, diy decorations, the fashion, the endless colors and textures of linens, the sweetness of candy buffets, and so many other things; I really could go on and on. Needless to say, as you can tell; I enjoy weddings! I think its pretty awesome that I'm given the responsibility of making all the details come together and making a couple's dreams become reality! 

Today I'm going to start a new series that will take place on Wednesdays, titled "Wedding Wednesday"! I'm excited to start this new series for you all; because I'll be able to share my passion for weddings with you all, ideas, inspiration, and maybe lend some help in your wedding planning. I really hope you all enjoy the future Wedding Wednesdays, as much as I'll enjoy writing them!

For today's Wedding Wednesday, I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite gown designers, Hayley Paige. At only 25 years old, she's one of the youngest gown designers to have her own bridal collection. 

I really LOVE Hayley Paige designed gowns because they are exactly my style! Any girl getting married would feel like a princess wearing one of her gowns. With a young, flirty, feminine, edgy, yet modern look; they are different than a lot of other gowns in the market. Hayley is such a creative designer and she brings a fresh, young perspective to the bridal fashion industry; which is very appealing!

I especially like the gown with the cut out heart in the back!

She thinks of the modern bride with this convertible gown that can be turned into a short dress.

Hayley Paige gowns are "designed for a girl who has an amazing sense of self, but also doesn't take herself too seriously". I must agree; and I hope I, myself, can wear one of her stunning designs; when it's my turn to walk down the aisle!!

Song of The Moment

I was riding in the car today, with the windows down, when the song Stereo Hearts, by Gym Class Heroes came on. I like this song because it talks about how you, or your heart is a stereo that beats for someone. My mind wanders to my special someone, when I hear this song; I have even tried to sing it to him.

Today I have picked this song as this week's Song of The Moment! Click below to watch the video and really "listen" to the lyrics. Let me know what you think and who comes to mind.

To my sweetheart: 
"You know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you"
