Friday Favorites: 04.26.13

Happy Friday to you and yours!  We’ve had a nice quiet week but could do without the frost warnings!  Looking forward to a bit of a warm up next week.  Did you happen to catch all the pretties from Bridal Week in NYC this week?  We saw LOTS of gorgeous dresses and sashes and veils and other pretties on Instagram that we can’t wait to see in our Columbus bridal boutiques!!

Favorite Gown: Loving this one shoulder number called Emporium from Pronovias.  I like the sash but it looks like it might be a separate piece which I like even more since that means you can (possibly) personalize it to your taste.  I also love the draping of the skirt and the train – so, so, so pretty!

Favorite Bouquet: I’m having a small love affair with yellow right now (I blame Sandy, my 4/13 bride, and her gorgeous yellow, black and white wedding!) so this bouquet totally fits my obsession!   Garden roses, lily of the valley, peonies, and astilbe make up this gorgeous yellow and white textured bouquet.  (Astilbe is the frilly, spiky flower close to the stems – it also comes in pink and I ADORE this rarely used flower.)

Favorite Bout: More astilbe – told you I adore it!  Ignore the beautiful rock behind it – picture a tux or suit instead!

Favorite Cake: Interesting take on ombre on this one!  I think this cake shows that wedding cakes don’t have to be perfectly smooth to be beautiful.  (Side note – I cannot find the original source on this one – just the link to Pinterest.  If you know where it came from, please comment so I can give credit where it is due!)

Favorite Decor: Ah-mazing pink orchids at the Mandarin Hotel in NYC.  Love the hanging glass orbs too – the whole thing is just breathtaking!

Favorite Extra: Confession, I’m not normally a shoe person.  I have stupid feet so for me shoe shopping is akin to bathing suit shopping.  I know, turn in my girl card.  All that being said, I die over these shoes.  I love the sparkles, I love the bow, I love me some Kate Spade Charm Heels.  Perfect wedding shoe.

Have a wonderful weekend and as an added bonus, click over to Cup of Zup for a fabulous speech from Tom Fletcher (he was in the band McFly apparently) at his wedding.  So well done!
