    The Wedding Show 2011- The Dress.

    Gowns by Magdalena
    Choosing the right dress is key in the wedding planning process. Bride-to-be’s are on a constant search for that perfect dress. Focusing on the fun and exciting aspects, instead of how stressful it might get will help finding your dress a lot easier… Just imagine how good you’ll feel and look when you find your perfect dress!
    Bridesmaids can look forward to cute dresses as well!
    Some tips on finding your dress:
    ♥ Set a realistic price range. Yes there are many beautiful expensive dresses out there, but there are even more gorgeous gowns that won’t do serious damage to your wallet. 
    Just the right amount of poofiness!
    ♥ Try on a variety of dresses. It’s understandable to want to buy the first dress that looks good, but that’s probably just the excitement working… Have a few favorites then narrow them down to one.
    I’m loving the blue!
    ♥ It’s suggested that a bride-to-be visit lots of bridal stores, but I suggest looking at independent designers as well. They are able to offer you beautiful gowns,  not to mention the added bonus of having a custom made one of a kind gown!
    I love the bottom part! Ines di Santo
    Oscar de la Renta gown from White Toronto
    ♥ Don’t set goals you can’t meet. For example, if you want to wear a strapless gown and have hopes of toning up your arms, shoulders or whatever gown by the big day; don’t get a a strapless gown. Do so only if you are willing to put in the work it takes to get sexy sculpted shoulders, arms, and whatever else before your wedding day.
    Eco-couture collection by Adele Wechsler!
    One of my faves! A rescued vintage gown that’s over 70 years old by Labl (It also has a twin!)

    ♥ Find a dress that will suit the type of wedding you are having. For example if you’re having a beach wedding, wearing a gown that is light, and breathable is a good idea.

    (T.O.) The Wedding Co.- The Wedding Show 2011 sneak peek

    yummy cake treats from Cake Opera Co.

    This past weekend I was happy to join The Wedding Co. at the Carlu,  for the celebration of The Wedding Show’s 10th anniversary. I was oohing, and aahing from the second I stepped out of the elevator. It was simply beautiful and there was definitely something romantic in the air… Cake displays, gorgeous flower arrangements, not to mention a lovely eight-foot-round cake made out of paper! The boutique-inspired design boasted an excellent collection of The Wedding Co’s hand-selected exhibitors. All of them offering something unique and special.

    *Attendees were treated to cake and champagne for the unveiling of The Crane Chandelier Project– an art installation made from over 10,000 origami cranes that were signed by engaged and newly wed couples from around North America.
    *I had a good time laughing, chatting and sharing stories with a lot of the exhibitors… I’m so proud of all the women that are successfully running their unique businesses, embracing their passions and following their dreams. Very inspiring.
    *All the wonderful cake and treats the exhibitors treated us to!

    (T.O.) Marry me…

    I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance, A church filled with family and friends. I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for, He said one that would make me his wife.- Unknown
    I’ve always enjoyed going to weddings. It’s a magical time full of love, happiness, and romance;  and I’m always honored to witness two people making that special lifetime commitment to each other… Anyway, you already know that Yvonne’s sister is getting married soon, so we are currently in full time wedding mode over here at HeyDoYou! No complaints here 🙂 This is why I believe that the wedding show couldn’t have come at a better time! Next week marks the shows 10th anniversary, and we’re so excited to be celebrating with them!
