Autumn Evening Wedding

A crisp, Autumn evening wedding in the city.
I can smell the fireplaces burning as I write this....hmmm favorite time of the year.
A color palette of cream, mocha and black.

One elegant satin gown accompanied by a mix match of vintage 1950's cocktail dresses for your bridal party. Who says they have to match perfectly? Live on the edge but to keep within your colors, try looking for dresses in similar shades like the ones pictured below....

How about little fall flavored cakes, cupcakes and pies as alternative to the traditional wedding cake? Maybe carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and a old family recipe for apple pie? all this talk is putting in the mood to bake today...hmmmmm
Does anyone have delish family recipes?

Autumn Cocktail dresses

Autumn is here, although here in Milan, we don't really see the fall foliage, (one bummer of living away from my New England\NYC roots) So, this week, I'm bringing hints of autumn to Little Winter Bride, starting with these little cocktail dresses from Miranda Bennett and Sari Gueron. Perfect for your wedding guest and maybe even your bridal party, don't you think?

I'm sort of digging the all black dress and stockings with orange heels.........

my best friend's wedding

This time last week, my best friend, M got married in NYC to her sweet love I shall call N.
How cute is M's new hubby? Instead of a traditional toast he chose to serenade his blushing bride with a little song he wrote. Now, how sweet is that?
