Sylvia + Marvin

My design for Sylvia is a wedding gown with textured bodice: handmade flowers, embroidered lace, and ruched tulle. The skirt has different layers of silk organza with scallop trim and illusion tulle ruffles. Marvin wore a tailored black suit with silk lapel, gray vest, and a shirt with pintuck details. For the female entourage, I designed pretty jewel-toned dresses embellished with beads and crystals.

Add a touch of royalty with a Ruby Ring

There are some people who like diamonds and then some who like the colorful gemstones. But for me, a perfect piece of jewelry is one where you put both of them together. A ruby ring such as this that showcases a vibrant bold red ruby at the center and a stunning continuous series of round diamonds that surround the ruby and go half way down the band is nothing less than a gorgeous piece of royalty for your wardrobe.

Ruby is one of those very few gems that have inimitable grandeur that can make can a jewel look superbly regal. The sensuous red of ruby is when complemented with the brilliance of diamonds; it creates an aura beyond words. not only provides you with many such fine jewelry selections but also an option to get your jewelry customized the way you want it. If you are also a jewelry lover yourself then you know what I am talking about. There is nothing as exciting as wearing your own piece of customized jewelry that no one but only you have. All you have to do is chat with one of their Personal Jewelers online or give them a call at 1-888-926-4272 and they will make sure that you get exactly what you are looking for.

"Or Glory. 21st Century Rockers" - Prestel (Video 2)

Amazing book from Photographer Horst Friedrich. Or Glory - 21th Century Rockers.

When Viva first started coordinating weddings back in 2006, one of the fabulous couples who took a leap of faith and booked a new to the industry wedding coordinator helped to confirm not only my love of weddings but my love of couples who aren't afraid to do something a little different.

While hiring a food truck to feed your guests late night has become a staple for most backyard weddings, back in 2006 when candy buffets were the rage a food truck at your wedding was definitely not the norm. Seeing the jaws drop and the anticipation mount when 11pm rolled around and a food truck pulled up on the back lawn was priceless.

Five years later hiring a food truck for your backyard wedding is as common as hiring a florist to create your centerpieces, a dj to play your music, and a photographer to capture images of your day. Five years later I still love seeing the jaws drop and the anticipation mount when 11pm rolls around and a food truck pulls up on the back lawn.

As new ideas grow in popularity and become more and more common however, people start to wonder if they will survive the test of time or slowly fade away. How do you feel about the late night food truck? Whether it’s pogos and poutine, beaver tails or ice cream, are food trucks just the latest trend or are they here to stay?

It's that time of year again! Time to attend the Ottawa Wedding Palace Bridal Show. Taking place on September 10th and 11th 2011 not only is this Ottawa's premier wedding show, it's home is now one of Ottawa's newest premier venues - the Ottawa Convention Centre.

Each year Viva posts a Wedding Show Survival Guide to help make your day an enjoyable and productive one. This year, the Ottawa Wedding Palace Bridal Show has come up with their own so we thought we'd share their tips with you.

1. Register online and enter to win the Bride's Night Out prize package!
Make sure you also register when you arrive at the show. Registering at the show will enter you into all of the
grand door prize draws.

2. Create a temporary email address to be used while you are planning your wedding.
This way you can delete it when you no longer are interested in receiving special offers or hearing from the vendors.

3. Bring adhesive address labels.
This will save you a lot of time when you enter for prizes at individual booths. Most
exhibitors will want to know your wedding date so make sure to add this information to your label along with your email address.

4. Don't forget your pen!
You're going to see so much at the show and talk to so many wonderful vendors that your head will be spinning by the time you head for home! Make sure to write notes on brochures or flyers from your favorite vendors while you're at the show, as you're about to drop them into your bulging goody bag - it'll help you sort out who all was who once you get home and start taking stock of the day! Collect any information you are interested in - take it home to look over again when you have some quiet time.

5. Make it a girl's day out!
Bring your friends, your
wedding party, and your mom along to enjoy the big show! This gives them all a chance to feel more involved in your Big Day, and you'll be glad to have objective friends or family there to help you with your planning. Plus - it also means extra hands to help share carrying home all of the loot you're going to gather! (Want to bring the groom? Remind him that there will be delicious samples of all sorts of things, like BBQ and luscious wedding cake!). It is nice if your fiancé attends with you so that you are both involved in the planning process.

6. Make it a weekend event!
The show is open from 11am - 5 pm both days over the weekend - so if you get a bracelet for re-entry (available at registration), you can return for free on Sunday! Visit on Saturday with all of the gals in your wedding party, and then come back with your groom on Sunday to show him what you have discovered! (This works especially well if the groom has a limited amount of time or if your man is allergic to wedding shopping!).
Don't forget to take in at least one of the two
fashion shows that will take place each day (12:30 & 3:30).

7. Ask lots of questions, that's what the exhibitors are there for!
This is your big chance to talk with all kinds of wedding professionals - so don't be shy! Talk to the vendors and ask questions about their services, get the details on the wedding packages they offer, and how they can best serve you on your very special day! (A great tip: bring along ribbons or swatches with your wedding colors! This can help our vendors best help you!)

8. Bring your cheque book or credit card in case you decide to book services or hold dates with a deposit.
Many vendors will offer special day-of-the-bridal-show discounts, and many vendors or wedding venues book fast, so if you find the perfect photographer or your perfect wedding spot, you will want to be prepared to put down a deposit! Be sure to check on refund policies before giving any money, and read the contract carefully before signing.

9. Wear comfortable shoes (opt for your running shoes instead of the Jimmy Choos) and have a great time!

10. Relax and have fun - this is your wedding. Enjoy every moment - the day will be here and gone before you know it!
