More Sexiness Underneath: Brulee F/W 2010

Another lingerie line that I love is Brulee. First of all, you have to love their amazing web site. It totally gets you in the mood to shop for lingerie. Even though I love sexy, sexy - I was happy to see that they expanded their line to include this boudoir line. Definitely a line for the modest brides who want to be sexy but not too sexy. I also love the new copper color. See Brulee's entire lingerie collection on their web site, you sexy thang.

Tattoo You: The New Tatu Collection by Novell

Bridal lovelies, still looking for something unique for your groomy? For sure, the new Tatu line by Novell is different. The designs were inspired by actual tattoo and tribal designs. Just beautiful. There are a number of rings in the collection, most from stainless steel but some styles are made from platinum. These are my favorite. I bet you could find him something special. Particularly if he is not one who want his finger blinging all over the place. See the entire TATU collection on Novell's web site.

Elegant Bling: Kirsten Kuehn Designs

There are times when I get an email from a designer and when I look at their designs, I am blown away. This is one of those times. I absolutely adore Kirsten Kuehn and her gorgeous designs.

She has a wide array of wedding accessories including garters, sashes, headpieces, bracelets, barrettes/combs, and bouquet wraps. Here are few of my favorites but it will be so hard to pick something because you will love everything!

Shoes, Glorious Shoes: Lanalia Shoes

I love shoes. I love it more when I find fab bridal shoes that are modern and totally do not look like traditional bridal shoes. So I am going ga-ga over these shoes by Lanalia. First of all, they come in a wide array of colors. That will work for you and your 'maids. Bonus - you can also get the Swarovski crystals in a variety of colors. Now if you can't create a shoe to match your wedding color scheme, then I don't know what to tell you. See the entire collection for yourself, but these are my favs.
