Carrie Underwood's video for "Mama's Song" premiered today featuring none other than her mom Carole and husband Mike Fisher. This sweet, sweet song is about leaving the nest and finding the man of her dreams. Does a song dedicated to your mom on your wedding day get any better than this?

Mama, you taught me to do the right things
So now you have to let your baby fly
You've given me everything that I will need

To make it through this crazy thing called life
And I know you watched me grow up
And only want what's best for me
And I think I found the answer to your prayers

And he is good, so good
He treats your little girl like a real man should
He is good, so good
He makes promises he keeps
No he's never gonna leave
So don't you worry about me
Don't you worry about me

Mama there's no way you'll ever lose me
Giving me away is not goodbye
As you watch me walk down to my future
I hope tears of joy are in your eyes

'Cause he is good, so good
And he treats your little girl like a real man should
He is good, so good
He makes promises he keeps
No he's never gonna leave
So don't you worry about me
Don't you worry about me...

The Queen Mother’s Vintage Inspired Dress

Some brides look to vintage dresses as an inspiration for their own dream dress.

An interesting person with a love of vintage inspiration was the Queen Mother. On her wedding day in 1923 she wore a dress with a typical general style of 1920’s brides (loose-waist, ankle-length), but the detailing was inspired by a medieval Italian dress.

Now the Queen Mother’s wedding dress can serve as inspiration for modern brides admiring vintage wear. Rumour has it that Queen Amidala’s Star Wars wedding dress was inspired by The Queen Mother’s dress.

And so the circle of inspiration continues!

While menus haven't always been a staple on table tops at weddings, more and more couples are choosing to give their guests a "heads up" on what they'll be eating for dinner. The fun thing about menus is that not only do they serve a purpose, they can also be used to add colour/design to your table if you create them to match your wedding colours and theme.

Here are some of our favourites to give you a little inspiration...
