The Little Things

Take a closer look - you never know what you'll miss the first time around. Case in point? These two weddings from Ron Wendt Design and White Lilac Inc.

Two contemporary receptions, but with two choices in glassware, thus creating a subtle change in the overall mood of the event.

So remember, in the grand scheme of things, sometimes it's the little things that make a world of difference.

Ruffled Pink

A quiet moment in the spotlight. Normally I love my chairs clean and simple, but with soft lighting and a cascade of pretty pink ruffles complimenting classic white chiavari chairs, how can a girl not be utterly charmed?

What with Christmas morning bring for you? For any ladies and gents looking forward to something engaging this Christmas, here's a savvy engagement ring primer from Anne Chertoff, one of the authorities on all things wedding.

From "I Will" to "I Do":

I knew what my ring looked like because I inherited it from my great-grandmother but most brides will be getting new rings so here are some tips on how to ensure it’s a style you like.
  1. Not a fan of yellow gold? Simply mention that you don’t like it by commenting on someone else’s jewelry or even pretend you’re allergic to gold altogether

  2. Did a friend or relative get engaged recently, or even a celebrity whose engagement ring has been in the press? Casually mention that you love or don’t like the style of her ring to your boyfriend

  3. If you’ve already had the discussion and you know he’s saving for a ring you can always tell him which cut and side stones you want or show him a photo of a ring you saw online or in a magazine

  4. Why not go ring shopping together so you both get an idea of what your style is and he can get a better idea of how much an engagement ring will cost.
No matter what the style is remember that he went to a lot of effort to shop and save up for a ring for you. Yes getting engaged is exciting and wedding planning is a lot of fun, but the most important thing to remember is that you have found each other and are going to spend the rest of your live together. Don’t ever forget that!

Locks You'll Love

What bride wouldn't want long, flowing romantic tresses like these from Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2010 runway show?

From Style: That half-up, half-down style with height in the back at Oscar's pre-fall show on Monday? The soft, wispy strands to frame the face in the front? A rose for a touch of girly ornamentation? “Amy Winehouse,” Frédéric Fekkai stylist Andre Rodman said of the inspiration for the look.

I do think this brings new meaning to "if you seek Amy!"

Epic Love Story

It's a love story immortalized in one simple line "and the dish ran away with the spoon."

But why? They came from two different worlds - the dish, fine china, the spoon, flatware. They lived in two different households - the dish in the cupboard, the spoon the drawer. In the fair registry where we lay our settings, it was as unlikely a pairing as there ever was.

Or was it? As one wise fellow said, perhaps the dish recognized something familiar in the round curvature of the spoon and all she needed was an initial push down that slippery slope. That's why they ran off together. They couldn't help it. And in making that grand gesture, she risked it all for love. Oh what a dish!

So ladies if you're in the mood for love take a stroll down the aisle of Bloomingdale's Registry. Who knows, there just may be a dish and a spoon that will run away with your heart!
