Until recently, wearing a non-white wedding dress was just for very audacious brides. However, blush has made its official debut as an acceptable -not quirky- bridal gown color. For those brides looking to have a timeless look with a classy yet unexpected touch, blush wedding dresses are a perfect option. The trend of wearing this soft shade of pink on your wedding day is really something special. Take a look at this collection of my favorite Blush Wedding Gowns…
I love trendy details and unique weddings, but when it comes to the big stuff, I definitely consider myself a traditional girl. Even though I’m not sure I could ever forgo my white dress dreams for a blush masterpiece, I definitely admire the brides that do! Pink-hued gowns have been popping up everywhere, and I love how brides are rocking them in everything from modern to ultra-romantic weddings.
I am constantly amazed at the new fun things that seem to be popping up around this amazing little city we live in. This past weekend, I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in one of those new fun things. The Denver Bike Bar is a crazy fun experience and I HIGHLY recommend it. The perfect activity for a birthday party, bachelorette/bachelor party, engagement party or even just to show out of town guests around Denver! It’s a moving bar that is a 100% pedal powered vehicle that holds 16 people (10 peddlers, 5 loungers, and 1 group entertainer). Denver is known for microbreweries, and taking this bike on a brewery tour is the way to arrive in style! Seriously, SOOOOOOO much fun. Every one is dancing, peddling, laughing, and drinking…whats not to love?
There is one meeting spot for your group, then you hit the road and take a few stops! Tours are traditionally sold in 2 hour blocks, however, tours can be extended at booking. For two hours, you pay $320.00 on a Friday or Saturday and $295.00 Sunday-Thursday. Split that up between 15 people and you have a steal of a deal!
You can select the breweries or bars you would like to stop at, or ask the staff at Denver Beer Bar to recommend a pub crawl route for you!
If you have more than 15 people, renting more than one bike bar is an option. Racing is even a possibility (speaking from personal experience)!
This happens to be a photo of my tour on Saturday! We had a great time, every one was ranting on and on about what a great idea it was and how we all can’t wait to do it again! So gather up your friends and take your turn on the Denver Bike Bar!
A simply gorgeous flower, sweet peas are native to the shores of Sicily, Italy. Bringing out their natural beauty isn’t too complicated when they are placed in full sunlight. Sweet peas love to strap on their hiking boots and climb! They can grow up to almost seven feet tall and reseed for the rest of the season. Sweet Peas were an essential member of the Late-Victorian era garden. Not only do they look stunning but their fragrance radiates a sweet-seductive smell that has you pining over them. Imagine the sweet smells flowing throughout your big day!
Sweet Peas are perfect for Spring, Summer, or even a fall wedding when they are in bloom. Make sure your florist is picking them up first thing in the morning, when the dew is still resting on the petals for maximum fragrance. It’s always a delight to see these dainty flowers displayed on a trellis or arch of an alter. I hope these true queens can help add elegance to your big day!
The Hipster “trend” is taking over the Denver scene in so many ways. It is obviously noticeable in many different elements of style, design, restaurants, and neighborhoods. The word Hipster is a tricky one because of course, anyone who thinks they are a hipster, probably isn’t. Still there are tell-tale signs, and I am LOVING this style for weddings!
Hipster grooms do not like socks, but they do like facial hair and hats. Why? I think maybe it’s a temperature control thing, hair on the face and a hat keeps you warm enough that you do not need socks (obviously joking about the temperature control thing, but still curious). Sometimes they do wear socks, but the socks are fun and may or may not match?!? They also like suspenders and fitted vests, which is such a classic look for a groom!
I absolutely love the “hipster” style, can’t get enough of it to be honest! Whether your man is a natural hipster or just wants to look like one on his wedding day, the style choices can be bold or subtle, but can definitely bring a fun twist to wedding attire. Either way, it is a charming and handsome look for a groom!
Bridal Shower season is definitely upon us. In fact, for some of us, it is a whirlwind of bridal showers, consecutive weekends booked in celebrating engagements and adorning friends with love and gifts. I have been lucky to attend a shower or two (or ten) and always hope for a fun filled day with girlfriends with out silly games or uncomfortable traditions.
If you are the lucky friend hosting the shower, you have the opportunity to select the theme. I think skipping formalities and creating a more casual environment is ideal for a bridal shower and much more fun. It can still be feminine and girly or be a little more funky, depends on the style of the space you have to offer and the brides personal style. Think backyard party or picnic, fun food, thoughtful moments, and a good time had by all!
Hopefully these ideas have inspired you in your bridal shower planning! Remember to have fun and don’t be so worried about the formalities of opening gifts or uncomfortable games. A simple and supportive gathering of friends is what every bride needs!
