....inspired by the lily of the valley colors of spring green and cream and its delicate bell shape, here are some ideas for a spring bride....

........here's a little cookie that would make a perfect addition for a wedding desert display (particularly a winter wedding), Mexican wedding cakes, also known as Russian Tea cakes. They are also quite festive for the holiday season, I just made a fresh batch for my soon to be brother-in-law's birthday party tomorrow.

for those glamor brides, maybe a bird cage veil with a full bloom is the way to go, like this veil by designer Ellen Christine Millinery. (image from MS weddings)
veil or no veil? I'm still undecided..... so yesterday I was out and about in Milan, tried one on and fell in love with it! I mean what could be more romantic and beautiful then a handmade Italian veil. Roman brides, for instance, wore an intensely flame-colored and fulsome veil, called the flammeum, apparently intended to protect the bride from evil spirits on her wedding day. Whether your going for more the traditional look or something a bit more understated, here are a couple of ideas...
I found this beautiful veil at HOMA.....

or keep it simple with a single jeweled comb by christina garcia bridal....(image from MS weddings)
for those brides looking for a more unique accessory, I found Jude Miller paper flowers through Brooklyn Bride's Blog.

Ingrid Bergman's dress is my inspiration today along with this chic vintage wedding dress I found on the bridal section of the The Frock. All those vintage brides out there, the frock has a great selection of period pieces, check it out.
Okay, off for a holiday weekend. It's St. Ambrogio today in Milan, (the saint of Milano), so we're off to Madonna di Campiglio for a cozy ski weekend. Ciao!
Our anniversary was this week, so I thought I would share a little sweet moment of our candlelight picnic in living room....After the little feast, we decorated our, piccolo albero di natale = isty bitsy christmas tree....
This is our second Christmas living together, so we have no ornaments, last year we only had white lights, so this year we decided to keep it simple and we made paper snowflakes.
