High Drama

A few days ago we went to the Wedding Salon event at the Beverly Hills Hotel and scoped out some new emerging floral trends. Take a look at what hot So Cal pros created. It seems as though the next big thing is big, over-the-top, jewel-toned centerpieces. Tall and full on top, the hanging accents really enhance the pieces.

Say I Do to the iPhone


What will they think of next? The iPhone now counts down your "I DO's." This new application allows you to be a bit more obsessed with your date. Now every time someone asks how long it is until the big day you can have an exact answer! Simply enter in your wedding date and time and let the countdown begin. Wedding Day app counts the years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and even seconds until you say
“iDO!” Helpful in planning since every second counts for busy brides and
grooms!

Wedding Day app continues to work even after you say your vows, by tracking how long you have been married. Down to the second! Since your iPhone or iPod Touch is always with you, the countdown is only a click away. Wedding Day is a real time tool and available on the iPhone App Store.

Mediterranean Fantasy



The Bridal Bar San Diego

Indulge Flowers shared some great images from a recent garden wedding that are sure to capture your imagination.

We are loving the mango taffeta linens from our friends at Wildflower Linens! This wedding had a decidedly Mediterranean feel and featured sunset colors of oranges and pink. We also love how they used a mix of square and rectangular tables and some creative lighting from San Diego Stage & Lighting to add some visual interest without a tremendous budget impact.

La Jolla DJ's rocked the house with some great tunes and Modern 8 Films did a fantastic "love story" pre-film and also shot the whole day.

If you love the cake - look no further than Just Fabulous Pastries who really did a "Just Fab" cake!
