Project REVO

REVOweddings is a coming-together of San Diego wedding professionals offering significant savings to engaged couples through online bidding for wedding products and services.

Suzanne Hansen, photographer and owner of SheWanders Photography, wanted to do something to help her very good friend Peggi Walker, of Metro Floral, overcome the many daily troubles that cancer can bring to a business owner. Suzanne had the desire to come up with a plan that could assist Peggi with any potential funding issues and, at the same time, grow each of the sponsoring companies' visibility to engaged couples.

Grey is the New Black

Picture provided by Brunch at Saks

This posting goes out to all the brides preparing for a summer wedding. Grey is the new black! I can't tell you how many brides think you can't do a black shade in the definitely can but if you want to lighten up the palette, go grey! I always think of the guys in the tuxes, they look just as good in grey! Grey acts as that darker shade that you need to make a contrast without taking away from a softer look...try'll like it!

These are a few

....of my FAVORITE things! The other day when I was browsing online I saw this Marc Jacobs watch and about fell off my chair! I'll definitely be working over, over, ova time to own that baby! Of course, with bills, rent, groceries, savings, etc. it might take a little while- but it will happen! I also saw some of Kate Spade's jewelry pieces which I am loving as well!

Finishing Touches

I thought this was very interesting and different for some brides. Given, your personal style and feel for your weddings; it would be fun to have all the bridesmaids wearing a unifying accessory rather than dress. I would put all the bridesmaids in the peacock colors: blue, teal and black. This would be cool because your girls can choose the color they want and then everyone has the same cool hairpiece...just an idea!

I found this inspirational board on this site, Brunch at Sakes, and it really makes you think about what your wedding pictures will look like fifty years down the road. Photography is such an important aspect of the wedding; it is that component that will help take you back to those special moments long after they have passed.

Hues to Use

Picture provided by Brides of North Texas

This goes out to all my traditional Betty's out there. It doesn't get more classic than Vera Wang and all the shades of creme and ivory. You can however take these colors and have a more modern feel to the wedding by adding colors of silver or grey. Let me know what you think!
