I recently went to an event billed as a “scintillating evening of fun and information, focused on the Bay Area Indian wedding market.” Well, it was all that and more. Afterwards, I wanted throw my own Indian bash. I wanted to be Indian.
Rosemarie Lion is moving to a workspace that’s almost as cool as her photography. SoCo Depot, an old train depot in Sonoma County, is now a shared workspace for creative individuals. With that kind of billing, we can’t think of a better place for Rosemarie’s inspired work.
As a bride, the motto “Be Prepared” takes on a whole different meaning than it had when your Scout leader coached you on the finer points of selling Girl Scout Cookies. But thank goodness, right? Turns out those who want to help you be a prepared bride have much better fashion sense, too. Look at Russell + Hazel’s new wedding organizer, for example. In addition to the several great binder styles to choose from, there’s also a whole slew of planning templates to get you started.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve always found the ringbearer’s pillow a bit “precious”, if you know what I mean. A little too soft, a little too satin for my clean, modern sensibility.
I’ve never been to an Indian wedding, but I’ve seen pictures of them and they are a feast for the eyes. I’m fascinated by the rituals and all the color: lots of bejeweled women draped in gorgeous saris, vibrant flowers in abundance … That’s why when I heard about this upcoming event—a “scintillating evening of fun and information, focused on the Bay Area Indian wedding market,” I signed up right away.
Flowers too frou-frou? Plain white too plain? For modern brides with a forward fashion sense, stripes on their wedding cake have a smart and sassy look that’s just right. In the same way that a clean, symmetrical pattern of alternating color lends contemporary dash to a well-decorated living room, so too can stripes spice things up for the reception’s grand finale.
If you’re currently in the throes of putting together your San Diego wedding, consider stopping by a local bar Thursday evening for a little fun. While we at Here Comes The Guide definitely don’t advocate drinking while wedding planning (friends don’t let friends put down deposits while tipsy!), we thought you might be interested in a place that offers lots more than a stiff drink for the wedding weary: The Grand Opening of Bridal Bar’s newest location in La Jolla.
Tarte Cosmetics is one company that has mastered creating products that aren’t tested on animals, are paraben-free (very, very important), and contain botanical nutrients. The makeup comes in attractive, fuss-free packaging, and most importantly, they make you, the wearer, look good. You might have read about Tarte’s world-famous cheek stains in InStyle, Cosmo, and Self magazines. I myself am a fan of the “flush” and “blushing bride” shades.
