Last month, we did a post on creating signature cocktails to add a personalized look to your wedding. This month, we are following up with a post on personalized cocktail stirrers that will really have your guests in awe. Attach ribbons, personalized banners created on your computer, or other unique materials that coordinate with your wedding theme/colors to a wooden stick or straw. For those of you with time constraints, achieve this look quickly by stamping your wedding logo straight onto a wooden drink stirrer. And there you have it, a simple way to add a signature look to your wedding!
Cowboy boots, hay bale seating, gourmet franks, hot sauce, and s'mores...all the necessary ingredients that make for a unique western-themed wedding!

The chocolate fountain craze lives on - who can't resist the sweet temptation of chocolate?! This year only brings more unique ways to style and present these indulgent chocolate fountains. Paul Lester, owner of Fountains For All Occasions, has developed a unique twist on the already unconventional chocolate fountain by offering them in different colors for weddings and events. That's right; you can actually have the chocolate fountain match your bridesmaids' dresses! Paul has a standard stock of colors, but he will certainly customize a color for you if given the swatch and enough time to develop the pigment.
Imagine delectable chocolate fountain centerpieces that will flow perfectly with your color scheme and have your guests in pure delight! Or how about a colorful chocolate fountain displayed at the heart of one of our signature candy buffets? The wide array of color choices allow for so many unique possibilities at your wedding!

Gown embellishments continue to be a top pick among brides this year. From subtle floral overlays to splashes of color, brides are choosing to add unique details to their wedding dresses so as to accentuate their personal style. More and more retailers are picking up on this trend as well. Bridal shops are offering dresses with elaborate details such as crystal, cubic zirconia, pearls, and lace to attract those brides looking for a little something extra. Wedding dress designers are also developing more dresses with colored accented trims and sashes to add a little oomph to the dress!
Floor-length wedding gowns still rank high in popularity this year. But, many brides are opting for shorter, tea-length dresses. Initially, this dress style seems very informal. But, all you have to do is play with the fabric to achieve the look that you are going for. Choose an airy cotton/tulle material for an outdoor wedding or a satin/silk material for a more elegant wedding. Add more layers or even an overcoat for those winter weddings. Whatever the fabric choice, the emergence of the tea-length dress creates a unique option for those brides who want to add a little distinctiveness to their wedding day!
The last thing you want on your wedding day is to have to deal with the awkwardness and aggravation of your beautiful strapless gown refusing to stay in place. You will find yourself constantly pulling your dress up back into position all evening - not very appealing!
Wedding gown designer, Anjolique, has come up with a ground-breaking solution to this everlasting issue. She developed the fit enhancer, which gives brides the confidence to look and feel beautiful on their wedding day. Not only does it prevent slippage, but the fit enhancer will slim your figure without the discomfort of a traditional corset. The fit enhancer simply laces in the back of the gown and can be adjusted to achieve the secure and relaxed fit that all brides desire in a wedding dress. Note that when you buy an Anjolique gown with the built-in fit enhancer, you also benefit from the impeccable designs and styling that are offered in her gorgeous wedding gowns.
