Trish Suhr's Wedding

I'm a huge fan of Clean House. I love watching Niecy Nash and her team clean and purge messy homes. So when I saw that there was a special on the Style network about Trish Suhr's destination wedding, I clicked record.

Trish had a destination wedding in Mexico. Part of the episode is her talking about how she finds wedding planners to be crazy. But if you watch the interviews, I think part of it is the planners that she chose to meet.

Royal Wedding, The countdown begins...

To say that I am thrilled at the plans of a royal wedding is an understatement. I cannot wait to see how their plans will impact future trends. I pray that Kate is a More is More kind of girl.

The future Mr. and Mrs. attending a wedding together
which is a big deal if you have been following this couple)

I remember watching Charles and Diana's wedding on the tele when I was 5.
Her dress - and her 25 foot train - was insanely over the top

I can't wait to see what is planned for 2011! Let the countdown begin...

Wedzu is an amazing new online source for indie and handmade wedding items. This site pretty much has it all. Products range from wedding attire to reception decor to gorgeous jewelry.

Here are some of my favorites - and as you'll see by the large amount, it was not easy to narrow it down.

How great would this tie be on a little ring bearer?!

Love this wedding dress.

I love the rustic look of the couple's ceremony, it was perfect for the venue!

Guests were able to put wishes on branches for the couple.

The programs looked homemade.

The cake's four tiers were decorated with calla lilies.

The outdoor space is so warm and inviting.

Registry for Foodies

I love non-traditional registries - some brides just don't need a new blender! Foodie Registry is a new registry site for Chicago foodie couples or for those who just enjoy a nice night out. If this free site had been around when I got married, I would have definitely registered for a gift certificate for dinner at Spiaggia and brunch at Perennial. I also love the idea of being able to give the gift of a lovely (and delicious) date night to newlywed friends.

Would you consider using Foodie Registry? What fabulous Chicago eateries would you register for?

Merritt + Steve: The Details

Yesterday I posted from photos from Merritt and Steve's ceremony and reception. Now for the details!

All photos by Brian Kinyon.

I loved how light Merritt's dress looked.

Bouquets were white with green accents.

I know I've said this before, but I adore a colored shoe!

Merritt wore a beautiful, elaborate headband.

The programs explained the components of the ceremony to guests.

The beautiful ketubah.

These seats are reserved for the Bride and Groom!

Mixed shades of green brightened up the escort cards.

Instead of a cake, they served yummy cupcakes in a variety of flavors.

The tables were named after famous Chicago places.

Mazel Tov, Merritt and Steve!
