Running to the courthouse?

Okay, so you've squashed the idea of the big "to do" summer soiree, and have decided on an intimate, just for two, courthouse wedding. Sweet. So, if you're the no frills, non-traditional kinda of bride; looking for a budget friendly, simple dress that hints or rather whispers a little bit of "blushing bride to be" for your upcoming nuptials, look no further....How about this darling little cotton, brocade dress for your summer, courthouse wedding? I'm picturing "morning nuptials" with a little champagne breakfast to follow....

Little Winter Bride where have you been?

Well, hello dear little winter bride's been a little while but now that LWB has settled into a new city, there's plenty to share with you all.  In addition to the new city, I've been busy as a bee working on a newish project, (I say "newish" cause it's been an under the radar project for some time now but finally coming into a new phase that I'm excited to share with you all) hence why posts have come to a halt here on LWB.  It's almost ready to share, so stay tuned. Also, I've been spending more time over at the lifestyle blog, House of Violetta, so be sure to pop on over there for your frequent daily\weekly updates of life as an expat in Italy. In the meantime,  I stumbled upon this elegant, fancy pants wedding dress (see above pic) in a shop window here in Bologna, isn't the back, stunning? Feast your eyes on some of the other lovely wedding gowns from this shop over here.

Some news....................

So it's been a little quiet over here on LWB and there is a BIG and good reason for that......................
Today, I thought it was the perfect time to explain my lack of posts these past couple of months and share some magical news with you all. As you could probably read from the illustration caption above, A. and I are expecting our first little bebe this August! Yay! It's been 5 months so far and we've been enjoying every minute of this pregnancy ride, even those first 3 months when I felt, well, bad. very bad. But extremely happy at the same time. We can't wait to meet the little one this summer, as we both have been waiting for this very moment for a long time  and feel so lucky to experience it. In addition to our new bebe on the way, we're also preparing for a BIG move to a new city at the end of April. It's gotten pretty interesting lately, busy prepping for some big life adventures ahead......................

FLORAL: Spring Table Arrangement

Spring is HERE! A romantic setting of pale pink ranunculus with accents of variegated begonia leaves on a grey table cloth would be lovely for your intimate Springtime wedding. Your table arrangements don't have to be so complicated. Try simple, singular stems in a variety of missed matched glass bottles and bud vases. Not only might this idea be lighter on your wallet, it could also be D.I.Y project you could do with the help of your friends and family. To see more of this flower arrangement shoot go here.
