Well I saw the The Time Traveler’s Wife and I love Rachel McAdams on-screen dress. So I had to find it…knowing brides would be looking for this one. It’s simple but very elegant, which alot of brides are looking for lately…..the days of long trains are done. Well at least for awhile!
Well here it is, by designer Lea Ann Belter Bridal. Who I have to say is one of my favorite local wedding dress designers. They are just timeless and romantic and you will not regret your choice for your wedding day years to come. This dress is from her 2008 collection “Cecilia” the silk organza ball gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline and a soft A-line shirt with a chapel train. A mocha organza sash flatters the waist and falls softly down the back into tails. The back waist is accentuated with hand tinted blush roses and mocha duchess satin leaves.
The dress is available in off white and white with a variety of sash options ( she has it in mocha). Usually once I dress is featured in film it’s nearly impossible to find, but you never know.

I’m a huge fan of Wedding Movies. They get me every time. My husband tells me I have problems, but there is something about them. I actually have a collect just of wedding related movies, pretty much any film with a wedding in it.
Some of my favorites are Bride Wars, 13 going on 30, The Notebook, Runaway Bride, 27 Dresses, Sweet Home Alabama and Momma Mia to name a few.
Thinking of hiring a wedding singer for your big day? Wedding Singers are becoming more popular then ever. With couples deciding they want more then a DJ for there ceremony & reception. It gives your wedding a bit more class and adds that personal touch, which all couples are trying to achieve.
Some might be asking why I need a Wedding Singer when we already have a DJ. Well, music has the ability to evoke deep emotion and can enhance your special day for you as well as your family and friends. It’s just not only a form of entertainment and accompaniment for sections of the ceremony: music is a highly effective way of setting the atmosphere and the tone that you desire for your wedding.For a personal touch have them to preform your song. I know you both would be in tears.
- Listen to Audio or watch Video. If possible go see your Wedding Singer at another event or get them to preform a song or two at your meeting.
- Thoroughly read client feedback.
- Book early. A great wedding singer might need to be booked 3 to 6 months in advance.
- Get a contract and read it carefully. Most professional wedding singers will also require a deposit in order to secure them.
- Follow up with your wedding singer as often as you need to. Don’t be shy about making sure your wedding singer knows exactly what type of entertainment you want!

parents or whomever is walking her down the aisle) should take the rehearsal seriously, arriving on time and properly dressed.
Many years ago the bride chose a stand in for the rehearsal, since it was considered unlucky for
her to actually say any of the words of the ceremony before the actual event. Today however,
both the bride and the groom take their places at the altar. It is unlikely that the clergyman will
go through the entire service, but will talk and walk you through the sequence of events. Most
will let the couple go through their responses if they wish. As well as practicing the processional and recessional,and going through the service, the ushers should be briefed on who will sit in the reserved pews and how the other pews should be filled. Other details like who will roll out the aisle cloth and when, who will escort the mothers, and who will decorate the pews in the unlikely event that the florist will not will be covered at rehearsal.
practiced at the rehearsal so they will be said easily during the ceremony. The groom’s parents may be invited to attend,but since they do not have an active part in the
ceremony they do not need to be there. It is likely that they will be hosting the rehearsal dinner,
which follows and would prefer to be at that location attending last minute details.
