Divine Indeed: Divine Couture Gowns

This dress is stunning. I love the bare back. I also love the ruffles. The ruffles give the dress a soft touch. It is made by Divine Couture and there are more great dresses in this collection.

Here are a few gorgeous choices from Divine Couture:

Crown Me Please: Which Goose Custom Crowns

If you saw the "Sex and the City" movie, you know that Carrie wore a bird on her head on her wedding day. Well, if you don't want to go that far, here is a perfect alternative, Which Goose Custom Crowns. I think that any of these would do just fine. Buy one of these or inquire about your custom job here.

The Dainty Essentials: Zinke Design

Here's one especially for the Bride. Zinke Design has taken some time off from event planning to create a line of wedding essentials for the Bride-to-be. This beautiful set contains a dainty nhankerchief and garter along with a beautiful ring pouch. Get yours on their web site.

Looking for an unique bridal hat, then look no further than denishe Hats. These hats are very different from anything that I have seen before. So if your taste is a little left of mainstream, then these designs may work for you. See the entire collection here.

Do As The Scots Do: David Purves Bridal

Scottish-born designer, David Purves definitely believes in pushing the envelope and testing the waters. His bridal collection ranges from the drop dead gorgeous to borderline bizarre. It is so evident that he worked for John Galliano. If it is range that you are looking for, then Purves' designs may be what you are looking for. Dresses 7 and 8 are my favorites. You can see the entire collection here.

The Way A Man Should Smell: Prada Men's Cologne

Okay. I am a magazine junkie and my monthly magazine trip to B&N always includes picking up Details, American GQ, British GQ, and Men's Vogue. It is important for us girls to stay in the know about what's going on in the world of men. So while perusing Details (which is my favorite men's magazine because the writing is witty and sarcastic), I came across the most amazing smell and it was Prada. It stopped me in my tracks. I am a fragrance person... I have no problems stopping a total stranger to ask what they have on. This is the way a man should smell for sure. So if you are looking for a great gift for the groomsmen, this is it. Available all over but definitely at Saks Fifth Avenue.

The Brit and The Desert: Amanda Wakely

British designer. Amanda Wakeley launched her signature label in 1990 and over the last decade and a half has developed an international reputation for designing supremely luxurious, elegant women’s wear and accessories. Her Desert Collection of bridal gowns is exquisite. I like the fact that she is self-taught and agree with me that clothes really affect your mood. These gowns should inspire thoughts of Arabian Knights. See her entire bridal collection here. Here are my favs:
