Bling It On

Diamonds are a girls best friend’ ‘

April’s birthstone is the White Diamond (I’m lucky enough to be an April baby) and the White Diamond is statistically the most popular engagement ring stone of choice; but for some extra sparkly brides, the bling doesn’t end with their engagement ring but instead extends throughout their entire wedding.

So let’s Bling It On!

In the designer dress department, the *undisputed* queen of bling is  Pnina Tornai, you might recognize her namesake from a little show called “Say Yes To The Dress”. Her gowns are swathed in swarovski crystals which are usually laid upon a sheer corset, most certainly not for the most demure of brides.

A blinged out wedding would not be complete without some centerpiece bling, I am in LOVE with these hanging crystal centerpieces!

Bling is never in short supply if you just have the right inspiration.

Blinged out cake anyone? It’s too pretty too eat!

For me, personally, I am not completely sold on the idea of an ‘all white’ wedding. I love a good pop of color or a nice cohesive color palette. If you are an April bride don’t be afraid to add some color to your bling, or some bling to your color.

While some bling is sure to creep it’s way into your big day, I absolutely love a blinged out frame to hold a cherished picture in.

Are you a bold ‘Bling It On’  type of bride or is ‘Bling Not My Thing’?

Fairy Tale Friday

I will admit this week has two of my guilty pleasures wrapped into one! Pnina Tornai & Kim Zolciak Biermann…. Huge fan, guilty as charged! I could not think of a more perfect feature for this weeks edition of Fairy Tale Friday.

After Kim’s many trials and tribulations with “Big Papa” on Real Housewives of Atlanta she later met and subsequently married Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann. The couple were wed on 11/11/11 (Kim believed this number to have divine meaning) at their then home in Roswell, Georgia. The bride walked down the aisle to her groom in a pre-owned $58,000 Baracci gown, which reportedly weighed 32 pounds.

It’s no wonder the bride had a total of three wardrobe changes. The brides third change was into a Pnina Tornai jumpsuit.

The couples lavish day was designed by famed planner Colin Cowie. My favorite part? During the ceremony when Mr. Kroy Biermann gave rings to each of Kim’s daughters Brielle and Ariana, tears were shed by all (yes it was a bit dusty in my house that day as well).

Kim’s friend and cast-mate Kandi Burruss also preformed her ballad “Fly Above” at the couples reception, one of Kim’s favorite songs which also gave personal meaning to her Fairy Tale Day!
