Classic Black, White and Blush Wedding at Hotel ZaZa

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

When Allison entered their room at Hotel Granduca on the eve of Cinco de Mayo and found hundreds of rose petals and candles everywhere, she actually wondered if she was in the wrong room. But when Ty took her by the hand and got down on one knee, she knew she was in exactly the right place. One year later, the pair celebrated their nuptials with a timeless reception at Hotel ZaZa, done up in classic shades of black, white and soft blush pink by Events in Bloom. Lovely in her Vera Wang gown, with hair and makeup by The Perfect Face, Allison danced the night away with her handsome groom—and 250 of their nearest and dearest—in a one-for-the-ages Houston wedding that has captured our hearts. Big thanks to Pink Posh Photography for the pretty pix, and big congrats to this sweet, smitten Houston couple!

Swag Bag Sweetness!

Bridal Gifts Favors Skincare

We at Weddings in Houston firmly believe that take-home treats shouldn’t be just for wedding guests. That’s why we put so much love—and LOTS of good stuff—into our exclusive I Do! Bridal Soiree swag bags! We want to thank the exceptional brands and vendors who contributed gifts and goodies to the swag bags our brides took home from the fabulous I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston on Sunday, Jan. 26.

Greenleaf Gifts
Not only did Greenleaf’s First Blush and Gardenia Fragrance Votives have us totally swooning with delight over their soft, romantic scents, but their packaging was pretty much perfection. Love the idea of these for visiting guests’ hotel rooms, amenity baskets, and reception powder rooms and dressing rooms. Don’t you? #weddingfavor #guestroomamenity #homefragrance #bridesmaidgift

Thymes
Infused with jasmine, rose, hyacinth, lily of the valley and other divine floral fragrances, Thymes’ Goldleaf Foaming Bath Powder is our new favorite soak-time ritual. Did we mention it leaves our skin feeling like silk and smelling like Heaven après-bath? #bridesmaidgift #spabasket #bathandbody #fragrance

Kate Somerville
When the amazing Kate Somerville offers to treat you to a skincare treatment, you’d best take her up on it. I Do! Brides: Make sure to schedule your complimentary Kate Somerville DermaQuench Treatment at Neiman Marcus…TODAY! #bridalbeauty #bridesmaidbeauty #skincare #ideserveit

Nothing Bundt Cakes
So. Freakin.’ Delicious. Once you take one bite of a Nothing Bundt Cakes Red Velvet, White-Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate or Lemon cake, drizzled and basically filled with decadent frosting, you’re a fan for life. And they make wedding cakes, too! #bundtcake #weddingcake #desserttable #ideserveit

Tiff’s Treats
Cookies make us happy. So we kinda figured they’d make y’all happy, too. And Tiff’s Treats knows how to make a cookie that’d make anyone happy. ‘Nuff said. ENJOY!
#weddingfavors #cookies #desserttable #coupon

Last but most definitely not least, we’d like to give a big ol’ Weddings in Houston shout out to Save-On Crafts for the gorgeous romance-red Sola Flowers adorning our I Do! Bridal Soiree “Bride” name tags. These natural-tapioca-fiber flowers aren’t just beautiful, they’re versatile, eco-friendly and absolutely awesome for DIY wedding decor, favor packages and other fun stuff. Check ’em out!

A Special Scent for All Your Wedding Stuff!

Photos: 5 Thirteen Designs

There’s no stronger trigger of emotion and memory than a particular, familiar smell. So here’s an idea: Give your wedding its own unique fragrance—one that will both set the tone for, and forever evoke memories of, your most important occasion, your one perfect day. Online custom stationery boutique 5 Thirteen Designs has just launched WedScents, a line of heavenly fragrance kits designed for the bride to delicately scent all of her wedding essentials—from save-the-dates to favors to fabric elements. A collection of four introductory fragrances includes Citrus Blossom (bright, crisp, outdoorsy), Forever Fresh (herbal, gardeny), Captivating Waters (cool, coastal) and our hands-down fave for Houston weddings, Radiant Glamour—a sexy, feminine blend of fresh-picked florals. Each set includes a mist-applicator fragrance bottle, application ideas and 25 themed note cards. We LOVE the idea of tucking these into your b’maids’ spa kits or gift bags, or using them for favors at your bridal shower or pre-wedding luncheon (did we mention that the packaging is beautiful?). Breathe deep, dolls. This is a fun one!!
