How to Tip Your Wedding Vendors, 2010-2011 Guide

It's no secret that weddings cost a lot (both time and money).  Though the exact reasons for high wedding costs are complex (supply and demand, rent district, payroll, insurance costs, etc.), the vendors that you've hired, and the staff that they've hired, have put tons of hours and energy into making you day as perfect as possible.  To say thank you, it is entirely appropriate to show your gratitude with a tip.  The questions that I'm going to answer today are, which wedding vendors to tip and how much to tip them (if at all).

Signature Scent Station: How to Make Your Own Perfume

A while back, I wrote this article on signature fragrances for the bride to be for Your Wedding Day Magazine. 

You've probably seen a lot of DIY perfume stations in recent photo shoots featured the popular wedding blogs.

Since I've learned a thing or two about fragrance over the years, I wanted to give you a breakdown of how to create your own signature scent station for your next event or bridal shower (Speaking of bridal showers, be sure to visit the Style Unveiled Blog in a few days for my tips on throwing a fabulous bridal shower)

Four Seasons Biltmore Wedding, El Mar Ballroom

It's no secret that I love the Four Seasons Biltmore, and for Danielle and Joel's wedding, I got to combine a number of my passions.  Beautiful decor, great people and of course lots of heirloom jewelry (all of the pieces that bride wore, were REAL family pieces).  A true delight to be a part of.

This gorgeous couple had their wedding ceremony in the Mariposa Garden, overlooking the ocean just before sunset.  We've moved! Please join us at: Ariel Yve Design

Wednesday Inspiration: White Wedding Flowers for a Malibu Beach Wedding

Over the past 5-10 years, just about every color of the rainbow has been the hot look for weddings.  As of lately, I'm delighted to see a return to the classics.  Lots and lots of romantic, whites creams and ivories.  I love it!

Don't get me wrong, color is one of the most cost effective and fun ways to personalize wedding decor, but there is just something so innately charming to me about an all white wedding.

Check out this gorgeous white wedding ceremony design created by Mark's Garden.
