Calling all “outdoor” brides!!!

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

These things are the GREATEST thing EVER for outdoor ceremonies & receptions. They’re so clever and they work so well. I can’t tell you how many brides we’ve had over the years walk down the aisle completely off balance trying to keep their heels from sinking into the grass. Even weddings inside a tent can be precarious if it rained recently - you can have 100 cranky women at your wedding because they keep sticking in the grass - not to mention the potential for blemishing those new Manolos!

A definite MUST HAVE for all brides & bridesmaids if the ceremony or reception will be outside on either grass or gravel. If it fits in your budget it is such a thoughtful & memorable gesture to pass them out to your female guests as they arrive - but at the very least you can make sure your bridal party is prepared to strut their stuff & you will make a sensational (and steady) entrance.

Those girls at Sole Mates sure are clever!

Love those julep cups!!!!!

Friday, January 9th, 2009

We absolutely LOVE these silver plated julep cups from the Mindy Weiss collection.  Traditionally used to serve the Southern mint julep cocktail, you can fill them with flowers and either place them at each guests setting or cluster them at the center of the table to make a striking centerpiece. 


They look beautiful even without flowers.  I was so excited when they arrived that I bought two for my desk.  I use the large cup as a pencil holder and the small cup for my paper clips.

Custom Save the Date Cards

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

We’ve had these save the dates done in a whole array of colours - and they always look great - but I think this one is especially fun…and how cute is this couple?

It’s always a nice way to show your friends & family your engagment shots…we even customized one for a couple so that the back of the save the date was their Christmas Card…excellent…save on paper & postage…so smart!

Wedding Luminaries

Wedding Luminaries

Hi Lisa & Team!
Just a quick thank you for your speedy and extraordinarily friendly service. I received the luminaries and they are beautiful! This morning I also found your card in the mail which not only cheered me up (today is a grey and miserable day in Toronto!), but is a personal touch that I very much appreciate. I am sure to use your company again in the weeks leading up to my wedding and will recommend your services to friends. All I can say is that you have mastered the art of making brides feel very special and important - there are many companies out there who haven’t yet and probably never will!
Thanks again,

Mr. & Mrs. Beach Blanket

Monday, December 1st, 2008

We were all so excited when the Mindy Weiss beach blankets arrived…they’re impossibly soft and luscious. It makes you want to get on the first plane to the nearest beach!

It is like a cross between the softest towel you’ve ever felt and a blanket…and the best part is it’s sized for two…you’ll be the envy of everyone on the beach with this…and it comes in the cutest tote.

Even though I’ve been married for several years I think I might just have to buy one myself for the next beach holiday…either that or I can convince my husband to nap on it with me in the backyard.
