Unusual Venues for Your Wedding or Event

Looking for an unusual venue for your wedding? Would you consider Home Depot, Taco Bell or Wal-Mart? I recently heard that a couple got married in the shoe aisle of a department store.

Personalize to Exude Luxury for Your Wedding Day

If you are looking for that luxury item for your special day, why not create your own luxury by adding customized selections and personal touches that speak to who you are as a couple. Guests tend to remember those special wedding ceremonies and events, where they came away from the event having learned more about the couple or how they choose to celebrate their union as a couple.

This weekend, at the Houston Bridal Extravaganza, Nadine Moon of Who Made the Cake and Select Jewelers, created a sweet luxury that had everyone in awe. This cake had a hefty price tag of $1,400,000.00 and may be out of rich for some, but you can add a touch a bling to your to wedding cake for a lot less.

Consider using brooches, rhinestones or colored stones to add the wow factor to your cake, bouquet, attire or even to your invitations. Use your imagination while planning your wedding event, to create that special luxury item that will add that personal touch to your special day. If you are still stumped, consult a wedding planner about other ideas and how to incorporate them into your event. And remember, just because it looks expensive doesn't mean it has to be expensive.

Now that's trendy. Happy planning.
