{ Where Shall I Wed? }

Ever think to yourself, "Gee, there sure are a lot of amazing places to get married in and around Houston. How do I even begin to decide? I sure wish there was one place I could go to find out which venues have outdoor areas, which ones have on-site ceremony space, how many of my friends and family different sites can accommodate, whether they have disabled access, whether they'll allow me to bring in my own caterer—oh, and how much I can expect to pay per person, of course! Contact information and maybe a couple of video tours would be nice, too." Your wish, Houston bride-to-be, is granted.

Appointments will fill for this exclusive three-day trunk show; we suggest that you make yours, and prepare to fall in love.

Meredith by Rachel Robinson Photography

You would't believe, looking at radiantly beautiful bride Meredith, that Mother Nature played naughty on the day of her much-anticipated bridal shoot. Read all about her second-time's-a-charm session, complete with white horse, and view her sun-dappled, rustic-romantic photos, and natural beauty—enhanced by a stunning lace Alvina Valenta gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier (see above for more)—in this week's featured Houston Wedding Blog post.

Earn Your Stripes

Pining for a pattern to incorporate into your wedding decor, but not quite sold on feminine floral or regal damask? Get your stripes on! We're wild about black-and-white-striped tables topped with vibrant floral, gold-accent place settings and crystal stemware. Perhaps you'd prefer a monochromatic color scheme pepped up with preppy-striped favor boxes or a cool pinstriped cake? Of course, ties, pocket squares, belts, bouquet ribbons and other personal accessories are ripe for a natty stripe or two. Ask your wedding coordinator or designer how to bring a stripe or two into your setup, and get set to celebrate in style!
