Some of the best traditions have many years behind them. You’re familiar with this one I’m sure: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
Join the Dallas Bridal Show, on Jan. 28 and 29, in celebrating its 23 years of tradition in bringing together the best of the local wedding exhibitors and making those brides blush with the delight of it all.

As Tiffany & Company's light blue pigments are found throughout this wedding, one can't seem to associate this wedding without thinking of youth, free-spirited individuals, the calm and exhilerating yearn for spring, and subdued glamour. In this wedding, done by Magic Moments Parties and Events, the atmosphere was exciting, the people- bountiful, and the love- everlasting. Read an intimate review of the wedding from their event planner after the cut.
Every culture celebrates their wedding differently; every culture has specific traditions they honor in ceremonies to preserve their family's values throughout each generation. At a Bermuda wedding the couple often has a little sapling tree on top of their wedding cake. After the cake is eaten, the sapling is planted at the newlywed's new home, where it grows and matures along with the couple's marriage. In Czechoslovakia, instead of rice the reception line tosses peas at the new couple as they depart the church. It symbolizes health and happiness into greener pastures. In German history, a common wedding tradition done after the wedding ceremony was having the newlywed couple work together to saw a log in half. How neatly and quickly they did it was supposed to predict how they would work together as a couple. Needless to say, there is an eclectic variety of cultures; however, it is important to incorporate and honor tradition in our modern world. Michelle Moll, at Watercooler Weddings & Events, recently had a wedding that was an amalgamation of Iranian glamour, vintage romanticism and traditional religion all rolled up into a sophisticated package.
On Tuesday night 129 Leslie, a new event space in the Dallas Design District, was filled with women strutting their stuff in a high-end bridal fashion show benefiting the fight against breast cancer. The models, fierce enough to make any bride blush, consisted of stunning wedding vendors that donned beautiful gowns in the midst of an audience sipping wine and champagne. The Texas Wedding Guide is elated and honored to have been a media sponsor for the Pink Pride Brides Fashion Show benefiting The Bridge Breast Cancer Network.
With the resurgence of the "green" movement being evident in most areas of our life: emissions, interior design, fashion design, electricity, electronics, food production, water conservation and paper consumption, it has now trickled down to weddings. Of course, when one thinks of an environmentally friendly wedding, they may think it will hinder their ability to have a glamorous and bountiful affair. By changing little things from recycled stationary Save-The-Dates to having a wedding outdoors (to save on electricity), there are many ways a wedding can be a little greener without having to compromise its entire aesthetic.
With hectic planning schedules, dress fittings, alterations, meetings, thematic inspiration, stationary ideas, save-the-dates and a never-ending "To Do" List it seems to be harder and harder to plan a wedding when you do not know where to begin. Unveiled, the ultimate wedding planning event of the season, is coming to Dallas on a couple of weeks to inform brides of elegant and chic trends and up-and-coming fashion and accessories. Currently the Texas Wedding Guide is taking part in informing brides about an exclusive special where you purchase one ticket and get the other free. If you are needing last-minute inspiration or just want to prepare yourself for the planning phase and expose yourself to the gorgeous trends coming to weddings next year, Unveiled is the event to attend.
Royal purple and green are two colors that can make an event seem regal and naturistic at the same time. Royal purples and deep greens have been known to be used in royal courtship and, in interior design, have been known to make a room seem more majestic. In complete contrast, these two colors, when used in florals can give off a serene, environmental and organic feel. With florals by Signature Productions, Christine and Brandon's wedding at La Buena Vida Vineyards (in Spanish means "The Good Life" Vineyards) highlighted the deep purples and burgandies naturally found in wine, which metaphorically can also symbolize the amorous, all encompassing love they have for one another. Imagery was provided by Phase 3 Photography. Shenanigans Weddings & Events, their event planner, discusses the beauty of this wedding after the cut.
