As an invitation designer, I truly love paper. I will stop on a dime to gawk at paper. But this invitation made of wood takes the cake for me. Night Owl Paper has a whole collection of wedding invitations printed on wood. Bravo! See this one and their entire collection on the web site.

I decided not to run myself into the ground during NY Bridal Fashion week this time around. It is so exhausting. But I can't wait to show you what gorgeous dresses came down the runways in NYC last weekend. These fabulous dresses walked the runway at Rivini for their F/W 2012 collection. The biggest trend that I saw this weekend was The Kate Dress. Almost every bridal designer had a least one dress that resemble Kate Middleton's wedding dress.
