Relax and Unwind: Movie Night!

Posted on April 25, 2015 by  Miss Shabby Chic Bride   //   Comment

We have to take a moment and remind ourselves to relax and unwind. I am 6 weeks away from my wedding in Bora Bora, and last week feels like a blur, let alone the last year! Last minute runarounds preparing for the trip, and on top of that keeping up with work responsibilities have me so upside down. I finally have this Saturday to do nothing and I’m excited! It’s the perfect Saturday to kick back in pajamas, cuddle up and watch wedding movies. So remember to take a break from your wedding planning, cuddle up with the one you love and watch a couple of oldies but goodies. I recommend My Best Friends Wedding, Father of the Bride, The Wedding Singer, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Have fun!

Special Flowers

Posted on April 25, 2015 by  Miss Tranquil Bride   //   Comment

With all the hustle and bustle of planning the wedding, I completely forgot to have corsages made for the moms and my grandmother when I had all the other bouquets made. Since it was so last minute, I decided I would give these ladies real flowers to celebrate them on our special day. Helen’s Flowers in Alvin to the rescue! They are number one in their area and are close to Norma’s where we are picking up the groom’s cake. Perfect choice. I ordered two red corsages for the moms and a white one for my grandmother. I know that none of them are expecting it, so I can’t wait to surprise them with their very own special flowers.

Specialty Cocktails: Champange!

Posted on April 24, 2015 by  Miss City Lights Bride   //   Comment

Some of the most fun specialty cocktails out there are made with everyone’s favorite ingredient, champagne! How unique would it be to have your wedding toast with one of these, instead of a traditional champagne toast?

Another great idea is to have a Mimosa bar for you bridal shower or to get ready before the wedding!

PitaBites

Posted on April 24, 2015 by  Miss Tranquil Bride   //   Comment

We are so excited to finally have signed our contract for our food truck caterer! Yaser took me to the Houston Food Park for my birthday last year and we fell in love with PitaBites beef shawarma and babaganoush. PitaBites is owned and run by an awesome couple, Kevin Charif and his wife.

In our hunt for the perfect food truck for our wedding we were instinctively pulled to Pitabites. The flavors are authentic and Kevin is a delight. All his items are made fresh and are halal. We will be serving beef and chicken shawarma wraps with pita chips, a choice of babaganoush or humus. My mouth waters just thinking about it.  If you are ever in the Houston area you should definitely give them a try.

Licensed to Wed

We are officially 6 days out from our wedding. The realness is starting to set it and I can barely contain my excitement. Last week we went and picked up our marriage license at our local county courthouse. I was pleasantly surprised how fast and easy it was to get in and out. The website says 300,000 people obtain marriage licenses every year in Texas, and it being wedding season I was sure it would be a long wait. The clerks were even friendly and funny. All in all a much better experience then I had thought it would be. Now we have our license and come next week it will be OFFICAL! mar2
