Wedding Shoe Wednesday!

A girl can never have too many shoes, especially when it comes to her wedding day! These delicate Kate Spade Fanna flats are perfect for the bride who wants to dance the night away (or avoid being taller than the groom.)


They are available in three equally fabulous colors, ivory, cobalt, and baby pink. The best part about these flats is that you can definitely wear them again.


Are you totally loving that they look like ballet shoes, because we are!

Gifts for the 2014 Bride!

2014 is going to be filled with lots of weddings! Do you know a lucky lady getting married in 2014? If so, here are some fun ideas for gifts to get her!

1) Manicure/pedicure – now that she has something sparkly to show off, she has an even better reason for a manicure (we would recommend Chill here in Rockbrook Village)

2) Massage – wedding planning is stressful – what a great way to help her de-stress

3) Facial – help her get her skin in tip top condition

4) Accessories for the wedding day (such as a belt to pair with the dress, a hair piece, earrings, etc.)  These diamond cluster studs from Sara Gabriel are a huge hit amongst our brides (Abby earrings from Sara Gabriel) Find them at Ready or Knot!

5) Thank you notes/stationery – she has a lot of thank you writing in her future! Ask her what her colors will be and get some coordinating stationery (PS – don’t forget the stamps!)  We can’t get enough of these darling note cards.

6) An item from Kate Spade’s wedding line, because honestly, who doesn’t like Kate Spade?!


7) Clutch for the wedding day  - it is a great way to ensure that all of her essentials (phone, lip gloss, ID, etc) are in the same place on her big day


8) Custom hanger for dress (makes for some gorgeous pictures of the dress!)

9) Dance lessons for the couple (great for the couple who doesn’t like to be traditional.)

10) Subscription to a national magazine such as The Knot or Martha Stewart Weddings. For more local tips and advice on local vendors, check out Wedding Essentials Magazine, (check out this month’s mag- we’re on the cover!)

11) Hair or makeup consultation (she could use this for a shower or bachelorette party!) Everything runs smoother when the bride doesn’t have to worry about how her hair and makeup are going to turn out!

 

“The Unveiling” Wrap-Up!

ROK1ROK

“The Unveiling” took place Friday, January 24th at Ready or Knot, and was a blast to say the least! We had such as wonderful time with our friends and supporters.

Party guests enjoyed delicious appetizers from Jones Brothers Cupcakes, yummy croquembouche and puff pastries from Cake Expressions Inc. and delightful mixed drinks made by yours truly! Lillian Jacobitz from Creative Fleurs and Larry and Lisa Zulkoski from Hyvee Floral stopped by with gorgeous floral arrangements, and Joel Rudloff from A Final Take pumped up the party with some awesome jams. The hot commodities of the party were Christine Danderand of Blush Makeup Artistry and Dani Cooper of Boss Studios. They turned our beautiful brides-to-be, into drop dead gorgeous brides-to-be. We also had special guest Melissa Kasoff of Kelly Faetanini in attendance to help brides find the dress of their dreams. Lots of fun was had by all, and we were so thrilled to see so many old and new faces. We are so grateful for our friends and supporters. We would not be where we are today without each and every one of you!

Pictured above are the cronuts that served as the vendor invites for our party. How fun are they?! They tasted even better than they looked (believe it or not!)

Stay tuned, because this party was definitely “knot” our last…though it will be tough to top “The Unveiling”!
