Summer Wine Tasting Soirée

August will be here in a couple days and after that, summer is over *tear*  Before summer is a thing of the past and fall quickly approaches, there are plenty of parties to attend and host.  One of my favorite summer parties that my mom and I host every year  is a wine tasting party.  We invite all of our close family and friends for an intimate backyard gathering filled with delicious appetizers, great conversation, and plenty of wine of course!  Here are some ideas that we’ve used over the years that you can incorporate into your very own wine tasting party!

A Bride’s Five Lucky Charms: Something Blue


Day 4 of the series A Bride’s Five Lucky Charms is here! This day is all about finding that something blue to add to the wedding day.  While the bride’s something borrowed may be old and sentimental, her something blue can be new and fun.  Here are a few ways she can include something blue into her wedding day…



While colorful gowns are becoming more popular in the bridal gown industry, a bride may prefer to stick with wearing a shade of white on her wedding day. Even though she may not be quite willing to make her something blue her entire gown, she may be open to including the color in her skirt.  A new trend that many brides are following is to include a blue petticoat underneath their gowns to add a fun pop of color that can be visible or hidden in pictures. This is a subtle and creative way to include something blue for the bride.

Another fun way to include something blue into the wedding day is for the bride to incorporate the color into her manicure.  There are so many different shades of blue nail polish for a bride to choose from.  She can decide to get all of her nails painted a shade of blue or just opt for blue nail art on her ring finger for instance.  That way her something blue can be a little more subtle.





To go along with a bride’s other accessories, wearing a pair of earrings with a touch of blue is a perfect way for her to include something blue with her jewelry.  A pair of dazzling earrings will stand out especially if the bride wears her hair in an updo.  Even if she wears her hair down with flowing curls, the earrings will make for a lovely photo by the bride swooping her hair off to the side to showcase them.

Another something blue that a bride can include underneath her gown is a blue garter set.  There are so many beautiful blue garters available that a bride can choose from to wear on her wedding day.  To go along with her garter, a blue lingerie set would be a perfect something blue that only the bride and her groom have to know about.





A final way that a bride can incorporate something blue into her wedding day is by wearing a pair of blue shoes! A fun and bold bride may decide to wear a shoe that is completely blue, while a more discreet bride may want her something blue to be hidden in the insole of the shoe.  For the bride that is in between those two, she can opt for a shoe with a blue sole.  This is my favorite way to showcase something blue in a pair of shoes.  This allows for a pop of blue to be visible when the bride kicks her heels up or is sitting down.  Perfect for pictures!

Now that we have gone through some great ways for a bride to include something blue, all we need to cover is how to include a silver sixpence in her shoe…

All You Need is Love

I’ve noticed quite a few couples that have incorporated The Beatles in their event. What’s great is that there are so many different ways to interprut that theme. Wether you focus on a single song lyric or feature a Beatles inspired decor, I think its a great way to express you appreciation for music and each other.
