Yep, I said it…porn. You’ve heard of food porn, so why not have wedding porn too?
When I’m looking to invest a few minutes looking at nothing but beauty, love and fine details, I turn to a few of my favourite sites. They are free to visit, you won’t see any annoying pop ups, and you will leave with a smile on your face!
If you want to view some wedding porn, then I suggest you run along to one or all of these sites!!

While in the process of the re-brand for Bride’s Butler I’ve been looking at all kinds of designs, layouts, colours and fonts the past few months and let me just tell you, it’s been hard to decide! There are so many beautiful designs out there, and waaaay too many fonts! But, it seemed that no matter how much I looked, and how much I saw that I liked, I always seemed to be drawn to the chalkboard style.
So then for fun, I started looking at invitation styles on Wedding Paper Divas and ta-da! Found some designed with the chalkboard style. Here is one of my favs..
And then I kept looking, and I saw so many beautiful invitations I just couldn’t stop clicking through from one page to the next. I noticed that there were quite a few invites that were black and it got me thinking…I know that black has made a major come-back into weddings through the bridesmaid dresses, details and embellishments on the Bride, but I wasn’t sure if it would make it’s way to the stationery. But, why wouldn’t it? Black is classic. Black makes a statement. Black is back!
What I love most about these invites is that you don’t need a whole lot of colour, or any at all to show your style and get your message across in a beautiful, artistic and classy way.
What do you think? Do you think wedding invitations need colour? They are the first thing guests see from the wedding and help set the tone for the event…but from looking at these invites, I say go for it! Black is back, and I like it!
This summer we have 3 backyard weddings booked for Day of Coordination services. We’ve had a few weddings hosted on property of the couple or their parents in the past, but not like what we’re seeing for this year. Is it a trend or a coincidence? I think tented weddings set in the summer are becoming more popular as it offers your guests a more intimate atmosphere for your big day. Depending on your budget, you can host a wedding on your property, but know that they can sometimes be just as expensive, if not more than your average wedding at a venue.
Watch this blog as we head into fall for recaps and images from all 3 of our backyard weddings!

I’m a fan of things that sparkle…diamonds, glitter, stars, you name it. But one thing that I’ve always liked since I was a kid that sparkles in a different way, are sparklers. If you’re having a summer wedding, or are planning a summer wedding for next year, how about adding sparklers to your special day?
A nice way to incorporate sparklers into your wedding day would be to offer them to guests to hold during your first dance or to have a sparkler send off. Another way to use them would be to give them to your wedding party during a night time photo shoot.
Provide your guests with sparklers, matches and or lighters and a place to put the sparklers after they have gone out. A good place for them would be a pot filled with sand, or a wooden box. You don’t want to place them in a trash can/bag or anything plastic as they may still be a tad hot and you don’t want to start any fires. Also, be sure to check with your venue first if sparklers are allowed on site as they are a conductor of heat and fire and can be potentially dangerous and hazardous if not handled properly.
Do you like things that sparkle? Are you planning on using sparklers at your wedding?
