Sister Friend Thursdays

This girl is sick and pretty exhausted from a family DIY wedding over the weekend so no real post this week. But some advice to Big Sister as I know she wants to hold her wedding on her parents farm and the wedding I slaved away at  attended this past weekend was on a farm - please supply REACTINE!!! Pretty please?! Oh and Kleenex....that would be good too.

Sister Friend Thursdays

Big Sister wants magic, make believe, and fairy's at her fairy tale wedding. I wonder what she might think about this fairy inspired wedding. The photos look like they're straight from an editorial shoot but it is indeed an honest to goodness, breathtakingly beautiful fairy wedding!

Disney Inspired - Ariel

It's now time for our favorite redheaded Disney character. The Little Mermaid turned princess (with legs) - Ariel!! I remember seeing this film in the theatre - I loved it. I loved it because Ariel was a redhead and she had cool what's it's and who's it's galore. (I happen to be a redhead as well, although I was a decidedly uncool, scrawny redhead - Ariel and Jessica Rabbit somehow made it a bit easier to be a redhead back then.) She was a dreamer and always wanted more and that's what she got. And how about that crazy Sea Witch character, good ol' Walt sure knows how to make his baddies bad! Is it weird that I had such a crush on Prince Eric? Yup - super weird. He was an animated character and I crushed on him like crazy. ANYHOOO.....

Here are the Disney, Ariel inspired wedding dresses. I really like the detailing on a couple of them.

Sea inspired colours for the bridesmaid dresses
And of course the mermaid style flower girl dress

I found this style board for a little inpsiration and click here for the details

You could go with a number of decor ideas for your reception. Blues, purples, greens - anything sea inspired - anything to make your guests feel like they are dining "Under da sea.."

Until next time

Disney Inspired - Princess Jasmin

I loved Disney's Aladdin. It was more of a grown up kind of Disney movie - Robin Williams was brilliant as the voice of the Geenie - so funny.  The baddie (Jaffar) was super bad, Aladdin got the girl and of course that girl is Princess Jasmin. I also believe (and I could be wrong here) that Princess Jasmin was the first ethnic Princess in any kind of Disney animated film. 

So here's your Princess Jasmin Disney inspired wedding fun!

Colorful bridesmaid dresses

For reception ideas think intense jewel-tones, tents, rugs, lots of pillows...

Happy planning!

Sister Friend Thursdays

I was doing a little research this weekend on different kinds of weddings and I came across this website called Offbeat BrideOffbeat Bride is the brain child of a Seattle author of 'Offbeat Bride; Creative Alternatives for Independent Brides', Ariel Meadow Stallings.

The site provides information and different ideas for various showers, stagettes and parties as well as some cool do it yourself projects for centerpieces like these frosted glass pieces, creating your own reception back drop, making brooch bouquets - even making your own 'Hello Kitty' garters.

There are also loads of real wedding photos and articles you can browse through to get your own ideas. After going through some of the pictures, there are certainly some very creative people out there. Check out this rainbow dress.

I also found this other photo of another wedding and I thought it was SO cute!!

When I saw THIS picture, I immediately thought of Big Sister and Fiancé!

I'm thinking Big Sister could spend hours on the site and come away pretty inspired.

Disney Inspired - Sleeping Beauty

Here she is....Princess Aurora, otherwise known as Sleeping Beauty.  (What I'd like to know is why are princesses wearing pink or blue! Must be some prerequisite to princessing or something)

Here's some of the Sleeping Beauty Inspired Dresses by Disney
 But wait.....there's mooooooooooore! Disney has also started designing bridesmaid dresses to compliment the wedding dresses - here's a couple of my favorites although I'm not terribly sure about the brown colour but the dress is really cute. The black dress would make a lovely wedding dress if it were white, cream or even a really light yellow.


Tell me, what little girl wouldn't want to be a flower princess girl in this Sleeping Beauty inspired flower girls dress. CUTEST

Now....what would Sleeping Beauty's reception look like. Well, since we've already established that Princesses seem to go with pink or blue what if we threw a curve ball into that and went...wait for it....wait for it....GOLD. But if you reeeeeally wanted pink, here's your princess pink decor ideas as well.

S'all for now, kids! Sister friend's out!

While Little Sister's Away....

Sister Friend will PLAY!!!! Little Sister is away for a few weeks and will be blogging intermittently but instead of just posting on Thursdays - I'll be posting a bit more until she's back. SO - this is more for Little Sister (who loves all things Disney) than Big Sister but still fun. The powers that be at Disney have decided to branch out a bit further into the wonderful world of WEDDINGS....that's right, they now have an official wedding dress designer - all wedding dresses are inspired by the Disney Princesses (Well, OF COURSE). For the next little while, I will feature a princess a post. How does that sound?

We shall begin with one of my favorites, Cinderella. 

How about these Cinderella inspired dresses by Kristie Kelly for Disney?

What about these hot little numbers in place of a glass slipper?

 I LOVE the red fact I want them right now.
