Jumping the Broom

What happens when a down home groom and an upscale bride's family meet at their wedding? According to the Jumping the Broom trailer, hilarious chaos. The T.D. Jakes production starring Paula Patton, Laz Alonzo, Angela Bassett,Loretta Devine, and a cast of other great actors and actresses opens Mother's Day 2011. I think that I will be first in line in Atlanta!
FYI, jumping the broom is slave tradition done at the end of their wedding ceremony. The newlywed that jumps the highest is said to run the house.

Fusion Wedding "Wish List"

A fusion wedding is when you combine two cultures or two religion into one. With a lot of brides and grooms from different nationalities getting married to each other, their wedding day is a wonderful time to pay tribute to each of their distinct cultures and heritages.

Clothing is one way to show off your cultural pride.

The same holds true for couples of different religions getting married. Incorporating little touches of both religions will please family member on both sides.

Having communion together is a wonderful way to share your first meal.

Follow your wishes!

We are up to the letter S in our flower meaning series. Deciding what flower to feature was a no-brainer. Who doesn't look at sunflowers and smile? They make a unique bouquet and may not be for every bride, but those that choose them make a statement!
Sunflowers mean adoration and devotion. If you want to show that you adore and are devoted to your soon-to-be, they make the perfect choice for your wedding flower.

They are called macaroons. Whether you want to describe them as a cake, biscuit or a cookie, they are delicious! Originally from Italy, but made famous by the French, this light dessert is a wonderful alternative to cakes or cupcakes at your wedding reception.
As you can see from the picture, they come in a variety of colors and flavors making it easy to tie them in with your special day. It's also a great choice as a favor for your guests to take home. Edible wedding favors are always a big hit.

Cotton Bouquet

I love a lot of things about what I do, but the one thing that excites me the most is working with a bride and groom who aren't afraid to think outside the box and be creative. Here is a great example of a creative couple. I simply adore this cotton bouquet and boutonniere.
Now I will say that it isn't for everyone, but if you want your wedding to be memorable, sometimes you just have to go for it!
