Wedding Gowns We Absolutely Love, and Can I Have One?

Hello, Courtney here! I’ve been in literally over a dozen weddings, so I’ve seen everything from the very simple white sundress for a beach wedding, to a jewel-encrusted white princess gown in a church covered from head to toe in flowers. Although I haven’t walked down the aisle as a bride yet (someday I’m hoping!), I check out “Dream Dresses” picks every year. They’re usually breathtaking, and typically make me want to run to my nearest bridal shop and try one on just for fun (hey, you’ve thought of it too!). Here’s some of’s favorite dresses:

Ask Courtney: Staying Warm During Winter Weddings

Q: Hi Courtney, I live in Philadelphia, Pa, and I’m getting married in February. I’m worried it’s going to be so cold that I’ll turn into an icicle when walking from the church to the limo, limo to the reception hall, etc. How will my guests and I enjoy blowing wedding bubbles outside the church? – Kelsie

Winter Wedding Favors

A: Hey Kelsie, first: Congratulations on your wedding! Let’s take a second to sit back and celebrate your upcoming nuptials, and then worry about that pesky winter weather! We’re located in King of Prussia, Pa, so we’re right there with you in trying to cope with the chilly February weather. Here’s some tips for keeping warm and having an enjoyable winter wedding for you and your guests.

  • Get To The Church Early – Make sure the church’s facilities manager turns that heat on early enough in the day to ensure the church is warm and toasty! This way, your guests will be able to focus on your lovely wedding, instead of goosebumps!
  • Faux Fur – When walking from the church to the limo, throw on a faux fur stole. It adds a classic, beautiful touch to your wedding dress. Give your guests adequate time to throw on their coats before you waltz out of the church so that have time to blow bubbles at the happy new couple!
  • Warm Up With Some Bubbly – We all know a drink tends to warm us up a bit, so pass around the champagne glasses, and warm up with some celebratory toasts! Just be sure to caution your guests against drinking and driving.
  • Tropical Honeymoons – Here’s a great way to keep your mind off the cold: honeymoon somewhere tropical! This way, you’ll be able to look forward to warm weather right after your wedding. Check out cute Just Married Flip Flops for your honeymoon!
  • Winter Wedding Favors – Embrace the cold weather by adding Winter Wedding Favors to your wedding reception. Get everything from Personalized Cocoa Wedding Favors to Ornament Place Cards.

Wedding Ornament Favors

Best wishes, and don’t fear the cold. Just cuddle up to your husband!

Ask Courtney: Do Practical, But Beautiful, Wedding Favors Exist?

Q: Hi Courtney, my name’s Ashley and I’m getting married in two months. I’m all about keeping it simple and want to have wedding favors that my guests can actually use after the wedding. I’ve been to many a wedding where they had beautiful wedding favors, but I honestly couldn’t really use them after the wedding. Is it possible to have practical and pretty wedding favors?

A: Hi Ashley, my answer to this question is a very loud “Yes!”. I was at a wedding a few weeks ago where the bride had the exact same request. I personally haven’t tied the knot yet, but I’m a down to earth girl and I’d also want to have functional wedding favors. Here’s some of my top practical wedding favors picks:

Wine Glass Wedding Favors

  • Heart Wine Bottle Stopper – Whoever invented wine bottle stoppers is a genius (I’m a bit of a wine aficionado!). Everyone could always use another wine bottle stopper, and it’s definitely useful – what else can you do with an already open bottle of wine?
  • Personalized Champagne Flute – Glassware can be expensive, so give your guests something they can drink out of, again and again. They’ll always be reminded of your beautiful wedding when they drink out of it!
  • Wine Themed Cork Coaster Set – Just like the wedding favors I listed above, we all need coasters, too! These coasters are pretty and very useful long after the wedding
  • Coffee Wedding Favors – Coffee and Cocoa Wedding Favors are always a good choice for your guests to unwind with the next day.
  • Hope that helps you out, Ashley! Enjoy your wedding day :)
