If you could use a different color scheme for your wedding, what would it be?

So I picked a not-so-expensive set from Onieda. They were pretty and I liked the shape, and I thought that was just about all there was to picking out flatware.
Au contraire. Apparantly, there is a tricky little fraction that makes all the difference. Notice that some flatware says "18/0" while others say "18/8" or "18/10". Note: The 18/0 will rust. I had no idea! And of course that is what I picked. The fraction has something to do with the amount of nickel in it or something like that. But the bottom line is, if you want the stuff to last, pick a "18/8" or an "18/10".
Thanks Katie for the insight!

Note: I had never even heard of Christian Louboutin's before my shoe obsession recently began. I just love that red sole!
Or check out these lovelies from Kate Spade!
My hunt for bridal shoes is in full swing (and both of these are out of my price range!) I have a few pairs up for consideration - to be revealed at a later date and time. Stay tuned! :)

I must say that our engagement photographer did a wonderful job - especially for the price! :) My sister Shannon graciously agreed to take our pictures and we could not be more impressed with the outcome. If you need someone to take some pictures for you, let me know. I think she did a GREAT job!
I love this one, but Nate doesn't - because he says it just reminds him of how COLD the water was that day! :) He was such a good sport....
(I think this last one is my favorite)
When and where did you take your engagement photos?

Beautiful bridesmaid's bouquets!
Beautiful, huh? I'm so excited to have her as our wedding photographer! See more of her stuff at: www.audreysnowphotography.com
My fiance and I met with her at Starbucks in our hometown a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with her. I know she will do such a great job! One of the most important things to us when we were looking for a photographer was someone who understood the difficulties that can come with shooting a mixed race wedding (think: white girl in white dress, black guy in black tux...ummm...this could be tough). If you look at her portfolio, you will see that she has some experience in this area! I love her artistic approach and creative shots. Thanks Audrey!
