The Nonconforming Bridal Fair

I would be remiss if I didn't mention a very unconventional event for the offbeat bride...The Nonconforming Bridal Fair.

For the brazen bride, the traditional white dress with a tried and true ceremony just wont do!  The nonconforming bride desires a wedding that is as unique as she is!

Whether you are wearing a suit instead of a dress, getting married underwater instead of in a church, or just "non-traditional" by any sense of the word.  Whether you're just looking to add a little whimsy to your wedding or dare to be totally different, you will find help and resources at The Nonconforming Bridal Fair!

New Find: La Bella Bride Magazine

Photo from La Bella
While in one of my favorite places today, Borders; I came across a magazine I'd never seen or heard of before.  Now, there are a lot of glossy, eye-catching magazines on shelf many of which I consider the same-old stuff, same-old articles and tired themes. 

La Bella Bride is a New England publication that features trends, love stories and real weddings mainly in the New England area.  On the cover, was an African-American model which for a publication that is not exclusively for African-Americans is rare to see.  And inside they actually featured a same-sex couple, a lot of information and inspiration. I was instantly drawn to ad by Diane Gaudett which featured a stunning black and pink table design with a damask runner.  LOVE IT!

On their site, they show snippets of the wedding of Alan and Luis who tied the knot at a lake wedding in Connecticut.  I personally love their matching tuxes.  Check it out here:

A Cute New Take On Wedding Cake

A Florida-based company, CakeShooter has put an innovative twist on the traditional wedding cake. A "pop-up" cake that your wedding guests can walk-around with similar to ice cream on a cone and enjoy.

With flavors such as pina colada, yellow raspberry swirl and traditional favors such as chocolate and vanilla. I love these (without even having tasted them!) unique and innovative which is always a good thing.
