Houston bride Meagan instantly fell in love with the grand Italian-villa-inspired architecture of The Bell Tower on 34th Street, which perfectly complemented her soft, romantic color palette of blush, ivory and gold. “I loved the beautiful carved-wood chapel doors, and had a vision of a grand entrance,” she says. “My fondest moment was when the bell tower rang, the doors opened and we locked eyes as I walked down the aisle.” Meagan wore a gorrrgeous drop-waist, lace bridal gown from Brickhouse Bridal with glittery gold Jimmy Choo pumps, of course. Swooning already? Yeah, we thought so. Just wait ’til you see the pics of the bouquet, centerpieces and OMG cake from Who Made The Cake! Congrats and best wishes, Meagan and JT!

Cold weather, dryer temps and brisk wind can be rough on skin, which can be especially rough on brides to be. Europe’s tiny “everlasting flower” is the key to Lady Primrose’s Necture body crème‘s intensive hydrating properties. This beautifully packaged line, featured recently in our I Do! Bridal Soiree swag bags, is rich with Vitamins C and E, antioxidants and collagen builders that erase dryness and wrinkles, resulting in soft, supple, wedding-ready skin. And the delicate, refreshing scent, infused with jasmine, apple blossom, lily and fresh mint, is a perfect pick-me-up any time of day. Pick up Lady Primrose at beloved Houston retailer Bering’s!

Sooo in love with RICH Pure Luxury Argan De-Frizz Shine & Mist, we just had to share! This lightweight mist has been infused with argania spinosa kernel oil to create smoothness and radiance on even the most humid Houston day, plus a luxurious blend of sweet almond oil to condition hair, olive oil to add shine, and linseed oil to strengthen dry, tired hair all winter long. It’s a lifesaver on your wedding day, but equally perfect for everyday use. Oh–and did we mention it offers UV and heat protection for all that heat styling you’re bound to subject your hair to during the upcoming holiday season, and is totally free of parabens, sulfates and other yuckies that you don’t need? Get RICH quick, baby.

Amanda and her mom Kit have been baking together forever. And together they are the talents behind Tiny Pies, based in Austin. Their tiny pies are made from treasured family recipes with the highest quality natural ingredients, sourced from local farms whenever possible. They come in sweet (flavors like bourbon-buttermilk, cherry, pear-ginger, coconut cream and more) and savory (spinach-ricotta, potato-leek, etc.), they are made to be eaten without utensils, and they taste amazing hot or cold. We served ’em up in our I Do! Bridal Soiree swag bags. You can serve ’em up on your dessert display table, as take-home favors, at your bridal shower, as part of your hotel-room amenity basket for visiting guests, or whenever you want a satisfying, wholesome, tastebud-tickling mouthful o’ yumminess, handcrafted right here in the great state of Texas. Order online or pop into Revival Market in the Heights, or Central Market on Westheimer, for a (tiny) taste of heaven.
