At they recycle your wedding bouquet into high quality hand crafted paper that is used to create thank-you acknowledgment note cards. Also special about their paper is that in the manufacturing process they embed 12 varieties of perennial wildflower seeds. The recipient of your note card then plants the card to create a perpetual wildflower garden.

Are you a Maggie Bride?

February 1, 2009

Ever since I started looking at bridal magazines I have always been in love with Maggie Sottero wedding dresses. The main reason is most of their collection have a lace up back and to me that is so romantic yet sexy. Here is one of their dresses that I really like. It is called the Nevaya. I like how many different elements are included. Maybe you will too.

One-piece, strapless gown with a full bustled skirt and lace-up closure. Shining in Lustrous Satin and embellished embroidered lace, this style features bustles cascading down the side hip, creating a draping effect on the front of the skirt. Bustles are also featured at the back of the gown. Embellished cap-sleeves or a 3/4 sleeve satin jacket are available with this style.

You can view their entire collection here. If you are a Maggie Bride let me know which one you love.
