Teal & Silver Wedding Inspirations (SWS)

So much to see at the Spring show. One of our favorites from The Spring Wedding Show was this elegant teal and silver wedding vision created by Bobbette & Belle and Laura K designs. The designs from the invitation was integrated into the cute cookie wedding favours, the mini cake, and the wedding cake.

Kismet South Asian Wedding Show Review

I really love the fact that Toronto’s so multicultural and we have such a large enough South Asian community here that we can have a wedding show dedicated to South Asian vendors. FiancĂ©e an I must have stood out a little bit at the Kismet South Asian wedding show, but nobody seemed to care, we were given flyers and greeted just like the rest of the crowd. The show was colourful, crowded, loud, fun and exciting all at once, much like a real South Asian wedding. I really enjoyed seeing all the colour, watching drummers strut their stuff, and sampling yummy food. I definitely didn’t expect to see a real horse there!

Here are my photos highlights:

Wedding Visual Inspiration

A visit to Eatons Centre this weekend brought lots of fresh wedding decoration ideas.

lantern for your hall decor

Hanging paper lanterns of different sizes at different heights looks great, for a backdrop or for general hall decor.

branches that are casual chic

Pottery Barn is great for casual chic wedding decor ideas! These branches are $56 for a set (you'll need 2 min).

Tall green centerpiece

Bold and modern, these round topiary pieces inside a large vase definitely makes a statement.

The National Bridal Show review

Toronto’s National Bridal show, held at the Direct Energy Centre, is much smaller in scale than some of the other shows on the January show circuit. As per the common wedding show format, most vendors did offer some type of show deal. My advice is to do your research on all the vendors before you go, so you can book with confidence at the show and take advantage of these deals. Being the net-savvy bride that I am, I just can’t imagine not doing some research before booking a vendor!

I did find some real gems at the show, and we were able to get a great deal on tuxedo rentals from Tip Top tailors ($30 off each rental). Moores was also promoting a tux deal, but when we got to the store with our show slip in hand, we were told there were no such deal. In any case, check out these highlights.
