#WinifredWednesday - City Bride's Something Blue

We love weddings for so many reasons - the celebration of love, the gathering of friends and family, the excuse to wear the best dress of your life, and of course, the tradition.  There are few traditions more well known than the time-honored something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.  But there's no reason why you can't get a little creative while still honoring tradition.  And we know City Brides just love to get creative.  So for this week's #WinifredWednesday, we're going blue.  A pop of blue nail polish, a blue bracelet or flower, or our favorite - velvet blue shoes.  Whatever blue you choose, get creative and you're guaranteed to love it for life.

Friday Round Up

June Brides can take advantage of the perfect combination of Americana and summer love. Few things epitomize the first month of summer more than sun-kissed grooms, gerber daisy bouquets, and food on a stick. Before we welcome July with fireworks and BBQ, here are five summery tid-bits to ponder this last weekend of June.

Find your inner “ohm” at Wanderlust’s Yoga in the City this Sunday, June 30th. Stretch it out with hundreds of fellow yoga enthusiasts in Santa Monica starting at 1pm.

Summer brides are ditching the veils for floral crowns, but you don’t need to be tying the knot to create your own blooming halo. Not ready for the full flowery tiara? Add a flower or two to your updo this weekend for a simple nod to balmy June.

Give bold summer colors a swirl—literally. Instead of color-blocking your wedding, be inspired by blended watercolor shades. 


Bid adieu to June and wedding cake traditions with cute and flaky handheld pie pops from Cakewalk Desserts.  Then nail your “something blue” with an aqua-tinted manicure. Cerulean polka dots can add a wink of whimsy to a summer wedding or a sandy day at the beach.
