We are not great dancers and have been known to not think twice if we miss an episode or three of Dancing with the Stars but everyone will smile at and be inspired by this fun Mother-Son Wedding dance. It is even being billed as the “The Best Mother-Son Dance We've Ever Seen” with almost 2.5 million YouTube views and was featured on Today Show this morning (5.15.14). Be patient – at first the dance looks a bit nondescript and then both mom and son break out the moves!
Despite popular misperceptions, it is not only possible to find beautiful, relatively inexpensive wedding dresses, you can also receive them the next day if willing to pay for overnight shipping. All of the looks featured above are vintage inspired white and cream dresses priced from $75.00 – $400.00 and would be appropriate for all but a black tie wedding. Complete your wedding day look with headpieces and veils from House of Brides! Keep it simple and elegant. For shoes, we recommend sticking with the vintage vibe in a neutral heel. For us, the height of the heel matters less than the style. We would stay away from wedges, wood heels, and super casual looks but are not opposed to adding a bit of personality and color if you dare!
Just an FYI – these dresses are not just for brides. All would also be appropriate for any summer special occasion including prom!
Looking for beer koozies like the ones Jamie Lynn Spears gave as party favors at her wedding to Jamie Watson on March 14, 2014? We found some great koozies (sometimes spelled coozie or even cozy) to use either as your wedding favor, as they did, or if you prefer more upscale koozies, you can present them to your groomsmen as a thank you for their support.

We know this might seem a bit premature but it is NOT TOO EARLY to begin planning your Fall wedding. In fact, End of March – May are the months to get your Save the Date mailed. Remember the whole process takes time – try not to be in a rush. Also, if your mailing requires more than 1 stamp, please make sure you order enough the first time because you never know if the stamps will still be available when you go to mail your final invite. Mixed stamps give a sloppy first impression.
Here are a few things to consider:
Autumn Wedding Colors
The colors you naturally think of for fall (deep reds, oranges, and browns) work great, but if you want to open it up a little, consider olives, purples, dark yellows, and cream.
Some great color combos include:
Eggplant – Dark Olive – Light Olive Chocolate – Dark Red – Orange Chocolate – Light Brown – Cream Eggplant – Chocolate – Light Brown
