So cute: DIY mini candybar wrapper

Creature Comforts is one of my loves. Between the inspiration and the sweet tutorials, I might stalk this blog a bit more than I should.

Check out this lovely little freebie – print your own mini candy bar wrappers. These would make a sweet valentines treat – or maybe a cute little wedding favor.

Enjoy.

The veiled truth – how to choose the perfect wedding veil

Choosing the right veil for your wedding can be tricky. The days of only having to choose between a handful of veil-lengths, based on the venue you choose, are long gone.

Now, brides are choosing their wedding veil based on their personality and dress style. Short dresses just scream for short veils or blushers. Long, traditional-style dresses look great with just about any style. Details such as pops of color, gorgeous mantilla lace details and embellishments are all sweet additions.

David’s Bridal has a great resource on veils – if you’re not sure of the right kind for your dress-style, or just want to learn a little before you decide, they offer a pretty solid description of styles and a riduculous selection of styles.

And, OMG, I had NO idea that they have combs and hairflowers – to wear alone or accent your veil (or, as many brides do, swap with the veil after heading down the aisle).

My favorite piece? A sweet Russian netting birdcage veil with a feather-flower embellishment (H7546). So lovely!

Amazed by The English Dept.

The English Dept. Is hosting their annual bridal show this weekend. I so wish I could be there!

These dresses are stunning, ethereal and… simply perfect.

Love, love, love.

Photographing Your E-Ring

He just proposed. You’re SO excited. Now what?

You try to shoot a few photos of the ring with your camera, and they look… dull.

You give it another shot, adjust the settings, and still, it just doesn’t sparkle like it does in real life.

Augh, what’s a girl to do?

Follow these brilliant tips from Anne Rutherford, and you’ll be able to capture some amazing shots of your ring to share with friends, family and Facebook (or Twitter).
