Fun Idea Friday : Pinterest

Planning your wedding can be so much fun, but for most people it’s the first large event they’ve ever planned and it can be really overwhelming.   There are so many great ideas out on the internet that you can use for wedding planning and the best way to keep them all organized is Pinterest!  If you aren’t on Pinterest yet, you need to sign up TODAY!  It will make your life so much easier as you plan your wedding to keep all of your ideas organized.

One of the perks of Pinterest is that you can search for wedding ideas on there and look at inspiration boards other people have created without having to know them or be friends with them.  But the people you ARE friends with probably have boards already that you can use for inspiration.  Ask your friends, family, your photographer, florist or anyone you are already working with for your wedding if they are on Pinterest.  I’ve been married for almost 12 years, but I still see great wedding ideas every day, so I keep a board of wedding inspiration for my brides to check out.

This is one of my favorite ideas I found recently on Pinterest.  What a great way to save your wedding bouquet!  You can read the full post with instructions at http://www.comeonilene.com/2011/12/16/wedding-memory-capsule-christmas-ornament/

So head over to Pinterest and start pinning away for your wedding! 🙂

Fun Idea Friday : Customized Wedding Hangers

Who doesn’t love seeing pictures of your wedding gown?  You have spent hours, maybe days or weeks picking out the perfect dress for you and you want to have beautiful pictures of your dress in all its glory.

Taking pictures of your wedding gown is one of my favorite things to do, but those generic plastic hangers that the bridal shop gives you aren’t exactly a thing of beauty.  This is where Customized Wedding Hangers come in!  There are several companies now that make adorable personalized hangers with your name on it that you can purchase.

We recently discovered WeddingHangerShop.com who make custom wedding hangers.  They have so many options to choose from and have been kind enough to offer our blog readers 10% off any purchase until the end of the month!  Here are some examples of their work:

Find the perfect personalized bridal hanger for you today, and use coupon code CAPTURED10 for 10% off your order until the end of April.  Thank you WeddingHangerShop.com! 🙂

Heather + Tom | Ithaca Engagement Photographer

Heather & Tom have a tradition of going up to La Tourelle Resort & Spa for their Anniversary and they decided this would be the perfect place to have their Engagement Session.  I couldn’t agree more!  La Tourelle is gorgeous and if you have the chance, I highly recommend you try out the August Moon Spa there.

The weather this past winter/spring around here has been crazy.  One day it will be 85, the next day we will have a Frost Advisory.  On Saturday, we had one of those crazy weather days.  It was beautiful, then it was raining.  The wind would be crazy blowing, and then it would go away.  During our Engagement Session we had a little drizzling, a little wind, but a LOT of laughs!  Watching Heather & Tom together you can tell how much they love each other.  The minute Heather looks at Tom, she can’t help but smile.  I am so excited for their wedding in September!

Heather had the same makeup artist who is going to apply her makeup for her wedding come to Ithaca and do her makeup for her Engagement Session.  If you are thinking about hiring a makeup artist for your wedding, check out Aubrey at Lashes, Locks & Lips.  Doesn’t Heather look amazing?
