We love the vintage DIY details from this lovely Moffitt Oaks wedding by Designs by Karinda. The couple met at a Bingo Bar. After he won a round of Bingo, he had to do a catwalk to win the tiebreaker. He took his shirt off and held up a sign that said, "Single?" The rest is history.
Finding a venue is one of the first things you need to do to start planning your wedding. It is one of the primary building blocks of your perfect wedding plan.
Leave the big city of Houston and head north. In The Woodlands, Montgomery, Spring, Magnolia, and surrounding area, you will find wedding venues to suite every wedding style wish. From quaint bed and breakfasts to picturesque chapels, manicured gardens to rustic pastures, all nestled in the beautiful preserved woodlands setting we are proud to call home.
Here are some of our handpicked, favorite partners:
I love covering bridal fashion and always look forward to seeing the latest styles at the runway shows each season. New York Bridal Week is the Super Bowl of wedding fashion...and even when you can't afford the designer gowns you see come down the runway, like say this stunning number from Ines Di Santo, it's helpful - and oh so fun! - to see the trends you'll find in wedding wear for the upcoming year.
We love to share our favorites from bridal market - the dress styles we feel our brides will like. Here's your fashion preview for Spring 2015 bridal. Let us know what you're lovin' this season!

The Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 runway show was romantic and sophisticated, with whimsical design work and intricate beading. It featured fitted and flared looks with Chantilly lace and plenty of tulle.
Jenny Packham wowed on the runway with her collection featuring lots of beaded looks in chiffon and column silhouettes, inspired by classical costumes of the Thirties. We love that she opened and closed her show with plus-size gowns!
The Reem Acra collection consists of sexy and classic looks in cascading chiffon with stunning embroidery and pearl and crystal embellishments. I love the fitted looks accessorized with a bridal belt.
Carolina Herrera wedding dresses were designed with layers of gorgeousness! Tulle gowns unveiling a layer of embellished lace, traditional looks with embroidery, plunging necklines and lots of different styles to choose from. With a look for every bride, this collection is probably my favorite of bridal market.

Are you doing a First Look with your fiance before the wedding? Many brides are on the fence about this subject. Perhaps you want that intimate moment with your husband-to-be before you walk down the aisle, but you also don't want to ruin the element of surprise. I came across this blog post on Style Unveiled about a really cool idea one bride had, The Best First Look You Will Ever See, and we just had to share in case our brides were in the same situation.
1. From the little white, vintage chapel that hosts the sweetest ceremonies to their old barn renovated to rustic perfection for receptions, here's 8 reasons why we love Ashelynn Manor and 8 reasons why you should have your wedding there.
