Fantasy Friday ~ When Fashion Meets Cupcakes Meets Super Glam Inspiration

Look at her lipstick. Shimmery, gold and delicious! Yeah, yeah... I know it's the glitter from the cupcake, but a girl can dream, right? And, as you all know, when I dream, I usually dream in cake and cupcakes. So when I received this styled shoot which was photographed in a cupcake factory, I knew I had to share it with you, bridey! Fashion and cupcakes? Fuck yeah! But, this is even better than it sounds... There is so much inspiration in this cool ass shoot, that if you are going for a metallic theme or a vintage glam theme, or don't know if you even want a theme for your wedding, then scroll down!

Seriously, there are so many stunningly FAB dresses and delectable cupcakes (and, let's not forget the yummy booze!) right below my 'lil blurb, that I need to stop writing right this second and absorb! And you know what? You should too, bridey! Enjoy!!

Yes, I would like to have each of these gorge dresses! Wouldn't you??Um... OMG! See the crystallized sugar on the cupcakes? Holy shit!So so so pretty...A diff shotfrom the the opening pic... Kinda obsessed!Love the collar! And look down, bridey... Metallic tat?!!! Oh yeah!! PERF for your wedding day!

Fantasy Friday ~ Sip-Sip Hooray! A Fabulous, Glamorous, Same Sex, Styled Bridal Shower Shoot

I fucking love this styled shoot, bridey! Like, LOVE IT! Not only is there a ton of inspiration for you to feed off of, but it just goes to show you what a group of talented wedding vendors can do when they collaborate without boundaries (the boundaries sometimes being, you, bridey). When Laura Dee of Laura Dee Photography submitted this, she said that, “The idea behind this shoot was, "If Carrie Bradshaw married Charlotte York, how would that all look?" Well, I think they nailed it! It’s super glam, super fabulous and super kickass.

Seriously, there are so many things I love about this shoot, but if I had to name a few, I would mention that I am totally OB SESSED with the build-your-own cocktail bar! I mean, the moonshine will definitely knock you on your ass, but who cares! When you have some awesome food to go with it (just wait until you see the GORGE cakes!), what’s a ‘lil moonshine… Right? That's what I always say... Also, sequined backdrop for the photo booth definitely got my attention! This entire shoot can be easily incorporated into modernly FAB wedding or shower. So, go enjoy this one… I sure did!

Awwww.... That's tater tot, the one eyed pug. Um, yeah... You know my obsession with cake, and these are fucking awesome!Sip-sip hooray!!!! Love this idea! Love the bright menus!This is an incredible shot. I mean... It's so fucking amazing!Everybody is having such a great time. Well, I'm guessing the moonshine had a little to do with that...So cute!Bhaaaaa.... That's hilarious!Thank you for sharing Laura!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Damn Sexy Bridal Boudoir Shoot...

I can't... I love the idea of boudoir so much that when I saw this submission come in I was totally enamored. Because as not shy as I am, I have never so much as taken a picture (or had one taken) of myself that showed skin (well, anything worth seeing). So, as much as I love boudoir, at the same time, it kinda scares the shit out of me. No really... It's quite odd to appreciate something that scares you at the same time. I keep vowing that I will have one of my photographer peeps snap some photographs of me in my knickers, but every time I think I'm close to building up the courage, I bail. So... if you have bigger balls than me, bridey, go for it! Because I can assure you that as far as wedding gifts go (for your hus to be), boudoir is the one gift that is priceless.

From the Photographer: There's no better gift to a brand new husband than some bridal boudoir, so Ali Sumsion Photography and I got together to dream up the classiest, light-and-airy bridal boudoir session with the bride. We wanted the focus to be on her natural beauty, blended with lots of natural light and soft florals. Pulled together with bridal features like Danani's impeccably beautiful vintage-inspired polka dot veil and the bridal garter, we believe this classic shoot is inspiration for any bride-to-be!

I once wore a garter... Yeah... It's definitely not my thing!Flawless makeup!As I have mentioned, I'm totally aftraid of needles, so a belly ring is out... But, this girl? Sexy...The polka dot veil is FAB!!!
