Dress Pick of the Week: Maxine by Maggie Sottero

One-piece, fit and flare gown with corset closure. This hip-hugging, embellished lace bodice features a remarkable sweetheart neckline framed with Swarovski crystals and beaded embellishments. Ruched tulle sweeps over the shoulders giving the gown soft romance. Fluted tulle panels edged in lace exquisitely cascade down the skirt, creating a spectacular mermaid silhouette.

Gifts for your Groomsmen

You may put this on the back burner but when it comes time to show your groomsmen a little appreciation for being a part of your wedding, what will you give them? Think of something that they will find useful, bear in mind their hobbies and careers and that should make the decision much easier.
Here are some gifts we found and thought the groomsmen would find very useful:

If your groomsman is into gadgets, he would love this valet charger. It charges cell phone, MP3 player and PDA simultaneously

This alarm clock and radio is perfect for the groomsman always on the go

If your groomsman is into grilling, he will love this traveling grill set

Wedding Flowers:: Gardenia

This is one of those flower you have to handle with care, as its delicate ivory petals can bruise very easily. Gardenias are surrounded by waxy leaves and have a very heavy scent. Commonly used for a posy, worn as a corsage or left floating in a bowl (for smaller centerpieces). These are available in large four inch blossoms, as well as a in a miniature variety.

How to Freeze or Preserve the top layer of your Wedding Cake

In light of my upcoming anniversary this Saturday, I thought it would be a great idea to share some helpful tips on how to freeze the top layer of your wedding cake.
Many couples save the top layer of their wedding cake and eat it on their first anniversary.Here is how you should really be freezing your cake if you want it to remain as fresh as possible for the entire year:

Refrigerate the cake overnight in order to firm up the icing.

Wrap the cake in plastic wrap and place in freezer bags.

Use a vacuum sealer or even a straw to suck out the excess air from the bags as any oxygen left in the bag may start to suck moisture from your cake.

Place the wrapped cake into the bakery box, and wrap the outside of the box in plastic wrap as well.

Place the covered bakery box in the freezer, and do not disturb for one year.

Note: Not all types of cakes or fillings are recommended for freezing for one year
