Grand Budapest Hotel Wedding Inspiration

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I saw Grand Budapest Hotel back in late winter and have wanted to do a wedding inspiration collage ever since.   As usual, the movie had the Wes Anderson staples of vibrant colors and picture perfect composure, as well as the hint of whimsy and nostalgia that really attracts me to his movies in the first place.  Although I don’t think any of his films will ever beat Fantastic Mr. Fox, for me, this came in as a close second.  My favorite part was the innocent love story between the lobby boy and Agatha, the sweet baker from Mendl’s.  As always, Ralph Fiennes was genius.  That man can do no wrong.

Dresses for Weddings

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

At the end of August, Colleen and I are going to our cousin’s wedding in Seattle.  I am super excited as I have never been to the Pacific Northwest and the last time I saw most of my extended family was at Colleen’s wedding which was almost 3 years ago.  Yikes.  That went fast. My mom has 5 sisters so this side of the family is really big and we always have fun.  Anyways, I would really like to buy myself a nice new dress so I can feel pretty while I am at the wedding.  However, I have been having some difficulty.  Why is it that they make all summer dresses white?  How many white dresses do we really need?  Don’t they know that most of the time when we need a nice dress in the summer it is because we are going to a wedding and we can’t even wear white because then we look like a crazy person who is trying to steal the bride’s thunder??  Somebody needs to explain this to the dress makers.  I have found several that I like and I thought I would ask y’alls opinion about which one is most attractive to you.

1. I have been eyeing this one from Anthro for some time but I am not sure about the cut in the front and whether it would give me a weird boob situation like it kinda does to the model.  The back is cool.

2. This looks like Paris to me.

3. So the website says this is gray but I must admit it looks like it could be a little ivory-ish.  Too close to a wedding dress?

4.  I think this one is precious and an excellent cut for my body type.

5.  Jessica bringing it like usual with a pretty maxi dress.

6.  The watercolor and the pattern on this dress is gorg.

7.  This is simple and lovely and reasonably priced and could probably be worn again frequently.  But I must admit these backless dresses make me feel some anxiety.  I fear this would create a boob situation of a different kind.  What sorts of solutions do you guys have for holding things up and in in a dress like this?

Thoughts?

Calligraphy Services

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Hi friends!  If any of you have noticed (thanks Tay) a new link has been added to our header that says Delighted Calligraphy.  That’s me!  I have decided to start offering my calligraphy services.  We figured it would just be easier for now to have a separate page on our blog and then maybe eventually I will open an Etsy shop or something like that.  But for now I am offering wedding and event services and making custom art.  On the page I have included some of the pieces I have already done so you can see what kinds of styles I currently use but I am always open to trying something new if you have an example of work that you like.  I figured this is a great way to expand my calligraphy range.  Anyways, please go check out the page and if you have any need of calligraphy services, I would love to help you guys out.
