I would love to share with all of you my 2008 wedding invitation collection! You may view the video on YouTube.com. The collection will go live on the our website shortly. Keep checking back for updates!
I wanted to let you all know that I have a new and exciting wedding blog called TearDrop's Blue List! TearDrop's Blue List is a collection of pre-screened and hand picked wedding vendors in cities across Canada and the USA. We have researched each professional and have invited them to showcase their portfolios and talents on our Blue List to help YOU...the unique and stylish bride.
Our Blue List not only introduces you to the best of the wedding world, but it is also a place where we share news, updates and promotions on all our vendors. We also share all ideas and articles related to the wedding world. Our goal is to inspire you and help you create your happily ever after...
Today's post on our Blue List is about organization. I am giving away a free budget planner which I have designed myself. Visit our blog for more details!
Wow...that was a long break for us here at brides in the city...a well deserved break. But we're back and ready for the new wedding season!
Our post today is actually not going to be related to weddings...but some good news on my behalf. Back in October I had an art show, which has been my dream since I was a little kid. The show went so well that I've created a collection of paintings for sale. Visit here to view the collection. Any feedback would be great!

DO know what you want when you’re hunting for a new bra. Are you looking to minimize or enhance? Are you wearing it with your new black dress? Or your new white dress? Let them know exactly what your looking for . This will help you and your bra consultant.
DO know what to look for. Make sure it fits! Lean forward when you put your bra on and bring your breasts into the cups. Make sure that the cups aren’t cutting across your chest (making two boobs look more like four), the underwire extends to behind your breasts, the centre of the bra is flat against your rib cage, the band runs parallel to the ground, and you can fit two fingers beneath your straps.
DO enhance the positive. Push-up bras give great cleavage, while minimizers effectively reduce the look of your bust size. If you have one breast that’s larger than the other, you can build up the smaller one with a “cookie” (a half-moon-shaped cushion inserted into the cup).
DONTchoose the wrong bra size. We don’t think our breasts change significantly over time, but they really do! Start with a professional fitting and follow up every year.
DONT miss out onall the other options for everyday bra's. Don’t forget about T-shirt bras (which have smooth cups with a slight shell that let you wear fitted tops without the risk of “nippleitis”), bejewelled fashion bras and bustiers that can be worn as tops.
Brides don't rush it. Picking out the perfect undergarments for your wedding day will make all the difference. The last thing you need is pinching in places you dont want to talk about.
Brides after some much needed rest we are happy to get you back in the wedding planning game! We found this really awesome site www.flirtygirlfitness.com They offer pole dancing and belly dancing as a form of excersise. Or whatever else you might want to use it for! They have bridal packages and even offer at home parties for you and your girls. They have a fantastic studio and this would be a party that wont soon be forgotten. Take a look for yourself and maybe think about surprising your new hubby.
Today is Diana's birthday, let's all wish her a great birthday! What do you bake for someone who makes cake for a living...hehehehe!
It has almost been one year since Diana and I first met. We have become so close these past 12 months, it feels like we've known each other all our lives. You know how you just "click" with some people? That is what our relationship is like. We don't go one day without calling each other, at least 3 or 4 times a day! I don't know how I lived my life without her, I'm so happy you're in my life Diana, and I'm even happier that you were born.
Today's inspiration Friday is for all you soon-to-be-brides! One of the most important pieces of jewelry we will own in our lifetime is our engagement rings...so you want it to be just perfect! There are a plethora of styles and designs out there, so decide what kind of girl you are...classic, modern, glamorous or vintage. There are four designs above to start you on your way....I am drooling at the moment ;)
I'm sure as a bride you have a bunch of etiquette questions you need answered...look no further, just visit Emily Post's website for answers to common questions.

Thank-you Note Stationery
Q. I have note cards with my
married initials on them. Should I use these to write thank-you notes
for my shower gifts or should I wait until I am married and use
something else in the meantime?
A. Wait until you are married
before you break out the stationery monogrammed with your married
initials. Fold-over note cards are fine to use for shower thank-you’s.
You can use your monogrammed maiden-name stationery, too.
There is no single stationery required for thank-you notes, although
you’ll probably use a standard one-sided or single-fold note card and
matching envelope. The paper can be plain or bordered, white, ivory,
ecru or a pastel color. Use ink that is easy to read; black ink is
A bride signs with her maiden name (or pre-marriage name, if an
encore bride) before the wedding, and signs her married name afterward.
When using monogrammed stationery, the notes sent by the bride before
the wedding have her maiden name initials; post-wedding notes have her
married initials or the couple’s last-name initial.
Grooms can write thank-you notes, too! When husbands and wives share
monogrammed stationery, the last/married name initial, hyphenated
initials, or double last-name initials (when the wife keeps her maiden
name) are used.
