It's such a special treat when we receive wedding photos from our brides! Here's Tanja, another sweet bride of ours that we had to show off. :) She got married at The Grand Del Mar and used one of our favorite florists, Jolie Fleur. Of course we can't forget how beautiful she looked in her Anne Barge gown from The Bustle! Congratulations again to the happy couple, we hope you had an unforgettable day! IMG_3875 IMG_3873 (1)

Jolie Fleur!

Wedding photos are one of the most important pictures a bride and her groom will have. So to all you brides out there, don't forget to spend a little extra time planning out your decorations (;  I promise your efforts will pay off because in the end, you'll have gorgeous photos of your unforgettable day! Pictures taken during your ceremony will be the most precious, so more attention should be given to your bouquet, altarpieces, and your overall ceremony space.

A long, happy marriage!

In the recent weeks, I've discovered during some of my bridal appointments here at The Bustle that most of the bride's guests are already in a relationship, or married. The brides still wanted to incorporate the bouquet toss tradition, but in a way that would include the majority of their guests. I suggested an alternative bouquet toss idea that I thought was really special from the last wedding I attended. Traditionally, the bouquet toss is thrown to a crowd of single women. The lucky lady who catches the bouquet of flowers is said to be the next one to get married. A cute way to give up the bouquet is to pass it onto the longest married couple. It's a sweet gesture that not only includes a lot of your guests, but celebrates a long, happy marriage. You could do this by inviting all the married couples to the dance floor. As they all slow dance, request that those who have been married for less than a certain number of years leave the dance floor. Eventually by the end of the song, you should be left with the longest married couple and can pass on the bouquet to them! <3 Do you have any other bouquet toss ideas? I'd love to pass on some other great alternatives. (: bouquettoss
