A Cake to Talk About.....

Happy Friday! We hope everyone’s week has been great. It’s been a busy one for us, lots of preparing for upcoming weddings. We are looking forward to a summer season filled with gorgeous weddings.

Next week we are going to discuss all things cake (Yum!) and in preparation for that we had to share this groom cake from a wedding a few weeks ago……definitely one that couldn’t be missed! Exquisite job by TIER Luxury Cakes!

Have a safe and fun weekend – see you on Monday!

That Beautiful Bouquet

Most brides have a very clear image of the bouquet they will carry down the aisle, but the plan for that bouquet after the wedding isn’t always so clear.

Taking your flowers to be preserved or hanging the bouquet upside down in a dark closet is a good start. Once the bouquet is dried it can be placed in a shadow box with your invitation and other wedding keepsakes or you can place the bouquet under a simple glass dome to display in your home. If your bouquet isn’t one that will keep its beauty by drying, try taking some of the petals from the bouquet and putting them in a glass ball ornament to hang on your Christmas tree.

If you are looking for a unique way to hold on to your bouquet you will love this find….Petals Into Bangles. They take flowers from your wedding and incorporate them on a bracelet. Such a neat idea!! Below is a peek at one of their bangles, but be sure to check out their site.

A Day to Remember

We hope everyone is able to take time today to remember those who fought, gave everything, including their lives for the freedom of our country. We will always be thankful.

Happy Memorial Day!

A Little Sparkle

Happy Friday and Happy Holiday Weekend!

In the south this weekend seems to be a kick off for summer – so glad it’s here. I always associate summer holidays with fun on the water and fireworks. It only seems appropriate to end our week of favorite exits with one that ties in to this first “summer” holiday weekend….while fireworks may be a bit out of most budgets, sparklers are a great option! They are a reasonably priced, exciting way to leave your party and your guests will thoroughly enjoy the activity. Please be sure to have a responsible party in charge of distributing and cleaning up.

We’ll leave you for the weekend with some beautiful photographs of sparklers lighting up the skies for the newlyweds……

Getaway Cars

Happy Wednesday!

Back to the list of favorite exits today…..a good, classic car! This choice is always a big hit with the groom – there’s something about guys and their cars.

A Week of Exits

Happy Monday! We hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a fun weekend with two weddings on Saturday – Lori & Mark were married at the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel and Meagan & Brandon were married at Jingle Bell Farm. A big thanks to these wonderful couples for allowing Posh Petals and Pearls to be part of their beautiful weddings!

At the end of your reception, after the last dance is danced and goodbyes have been said, how will you exit your big event? This week we are going to share some of our favorite exits…starting today with a getaway boat on Lake Oconee.

Tipping

Happy Friday! We hope everyone’s week has been great.

Following up from yesterday’s information on wedding budgets, we wanted to share a little more information. Planning a wedding budget can be very stressful and you certainly want to make sure you have planned ahead for all expenses. One category that seems to slip through the cracks during the planning stages is tipping. Tipping should be done at the discretion of the couple, but it’s always nice to have guidelines to help. Here is a link to an article by Martha Stewart Weddings that may come in handy.

In other news, we had a blast celebrating Tara’s birthday last night!

A Sweet Message

If you’re going the traditional route of not seeing the one you’re marrying before the walk down the aisle, you may be in search of a way to send a  little message before the big walk. We love the idea one of our couples, Shayda & Lockett, came up with and had to share – they wrote messages on each other’s wedding shoes! Here’s a little peek….

A Big Thanks to the Teachers!

“A teacher affects eternity: he can never tell where his influence stops.” –Henry Adams

Rainy Days

The rain just keeps coming here in the south! The saying may be that it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day, but it’s not so easy to convince a worried bride of that when it actually happens. Rainy days are a reminder of a special wedding in September of 2009….a beautiful, lake-front ceremony was all set and at the last minute rain moved in from a tropical storm and we had to move inside. The wedding was still perfect and these fun pictures of the bride, Audrey, and her maids are priceless! Lesson learned that weekend – instead of stressing over the possibility of rain, just be sure to have cute rain gear on hand. Enjoy!
