Bubbly Bride: Barefoot Bride

by Azure

About Bubbly Bride A few weeks ago I wrote a post on telling your story through the shoes you pick for your wedding day. Today I am going to entertain another idea— walking down the aisle barefoot. Your story may not include shoes at all and that is OK! If shoes aren't your thing, do not waste time and money searching out a pair to complete your attire.

Wedding Day Bling: How Much Is Too Much??

by Azure

Regardless of how contrived, scripted, or unreal The Hills“reality” show is, I’ll still turn it on from time to time (I’m a total sucker for reality t.v.). I watched The Hills, Season 5 Finale the other night, and was treated to an inside look at Heidi and Spencer’s wedding ceremony. Heidi’s Monique Lhuillier wedding dress was beyond stunning. However, I felt Heidi went a bit overboard with the bling. Now, if I had the chance to borrow Neil Lane jewels for my big day,...
