Awesome off-beat decor ideas for your wedding

Here are some great ideas we found for backdrops and for table decor, from Crate and Barrel. Cool backdrop idea made of plates? Love it! Non-floral decor for your table settings? Check!

Girly Pampering @1BodyBar

Some of you might know that I became a mom in March! It’s been a whirlwind fun adventure with my little boy, but my usual beauty routine have taken a sorry second spot to diaper changes and play time. So I checked in for a mani-pedi at 1BodyBar in the hip Queen West area after a lunch date with husband downtown (the little one was with Grandma – perfect!).

1BodyBar is a modern salon and spa, airy, lots of comfy seating with 2 large flat-screen TVs – pretty nifty for accommodating large groups. I love bridal party manicures and pedicures. Nothing like sharing the pre-wedding prep excitement with your best girl buds.

I selected a neutral low-maintenance gel-nail colour, and I’m happy to report that they still look great 2 weeks later! The salon and spa also offer bridal make-up and hair styling. Check their website for more information.
