If you’re getting married this year, you have to check out these marvelous hair accessories! 2010 is all about the headbands and hairpins:
3) Iron templates
4) An iron
The trickiest part is reversing the letters on the template so they don’t iron-on backwards. Once you write your save-the-date announcement in a Word or any other text-edit document, go to print and specify that you want the image printed as “mirror”. This is usually located under “preferences” in your print menu.
Once you have the text printed on the iron template, place the image where you like it on the hankie. Make sure it’s straight and then iron it on. It’s that easy!

If you’re not the crafty type, then you can also buy save-the-date hankies at Lucky Luxe. Click here for more details.
Did you know that smell is the most closely tied sense to your memory? Brides-to-be want everything from their dress, hair and make-up to their flowers, cake and venue to be perfect, but what about the most memory triggering element of all…their perfume?
Recently, I found a fragrance called foreverlily that’s intended to open the heart and inspire hope, which I thought couldn’t be more perfect for a bride on her wedding day.
The fragrance is an enveloping Oriental blend with a top note dominated by clove and sweet accents of lemon and lychee. The crispness of fig and the feminine presence of stargazer lily are equally balanced in the middle note. The base note consists of cedar wood, vanilla, amber and sandalwood.
I’m very picky when it comes to perfumes, but foreverlily completely charmed me. The scent is so unique. It’s clean, warm and romantic. I liked it immediately, but I fell more and more in love with it throughout the day.

With the same artistry and precision that sustains his namesake line, Gilles Montezin introduces his first bridal collection. The brand has long captured the hearts of women and loyalty of luxury retailers and stylists across the country—namely Kleinfeld, Saks Fifth Avenue, Patricia Field, and Sarah Jessica Parker. With this bridal collection Montezin also introduces a dynamic waist slimming construction, “Le Cinch™”.
Having built countless bustiers and corsets as a costume designer at The Opera Bastille in Paris, Montezin has an unmatched eye for tailoring. With a strong emphasis on cut and shape came the discovery of new boning and bodice construction methods. Coined by the designer himself, “Le Cinch™” is an abbreviated interpretation of the traditional corset that nearly doubles its predecessor’s figure enhancing effects. The dresses are less confining and achieve the perfect hourglass silhouette with unprecedented comfort. The slenderizing effects of Le Cinch™ offer a bride an instant reduction of two to four inches from the waistline! The collection is available in sizes up to 18W. Larger sizes are available via special order. Dresses range from $4,000 – $7,000 retail.
“I’m not looking to make a ‘statement’,” said Gilles. “Whether ready-to-wear or bridal I’m looking to make woman’s dreams reality; I’m looking to make women feel and look amazing!” Most recently Gilles’ work was featured in ELLE Sweden, Women’s Wear Daily, and on Sarah Jessica Parker in the film Sex and the City.
With the recession in full force, many people are putting off their engagement ring shopping until better times. But, thanks to the hot new trend of band stacking, you can now move forward with your wedding plans and still be chic – for cheap. Women these days are passing on the giant solitaire and instead opting for two, three or even four wedding bands!
The trick is to choose different stone shapes, colors and sizes (like the photo). For those even more daring, throw in a yellow-gold band among your white-gold, platinum or silver bands.
The trend of stacking wedding bands is ultra glamorous; so no one ever has to know that you can’t afford a giant rock. Marvelous!
