Orchid Bouquets

We are up to O in our flower meaning series. So of course we wanted to talk about the orchid. Orchids come in thousands of different varieties. They are known to be delicate and exotic. Some of the meanings of orchids are love, affection, beauty, and refinement. It is a great choice as one of your wedding flowers, but it is beautiful enough to stand alone like seen here.

Flower Girls

It is tradition to have a flower girl included in your wedding celebration. The flower girl usually delights the wedding guests by dropping rose pedals down the center aisle for the bride to walk on. When they cooperate, they can be an adorable part of the ceremony.

One way to keep your flower girl from having the responsibility of tossing pedals, is to simple have her carry a pomander around her wrist down the aisle. These are wonderful for younger girls that may be a little frightened.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right little girls. Traditionally, flower girls range from 4-8 years old. The younger the girl, the greater the chance that she will be too frightened to perform her duties. Also, it is good to have activities during the reception to keep them occupied so that they won't get bored.

David Tutera & Diann Valentine

Over the past few weeks I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet two very talented wedding and event designers while they were in Atlanta. To say they are only designer would be an understatement though, because they are each accomplished authors and television personalities.

First up in September was David Tutera who spoke to his audience at Che'ne Rouge about creating a wedding with personal style. He also talked to us about his TV show My Fair Wedding. It was great seeing pictures from his many past events and hearing funny stories about upcoming episodes of his show.

Last weekend it was Diann Valentine. One thing I noticed about her was that she never stopped smiling. Anyone near her could see how excited she was about what she does for a living. She gave the crowd great entertaining tips and told us about some of her celebrity clients such as Usher and Toni Braxton.

It was wonderful meeting two people that I really admire. They gave us a chance to ask as many questions as we liked and it was fun taking pictures with them.

David shared exciting news about his wedding gown collection and Diann showed us samples from her invitation collection. I can't wait to see what they each have planned next!
