Suit Yourself

I was browsing App Store the other day and found this helpful app for grooms-to-be. Apparently, USA Network & Mr. Porter released this new iOS application ‘Suit Yourself’ to promote the new drama “Suits”. (I hear it’s good, haven’t tried watching it)

It’s quite interesting really! It allows you to dress up for different occasions (like dates, ball game, or weddings!) and it has a section on ‘how to choose the right suit’ too. Best thing is you can save the look you’ve created. Oh, and it’s free!

I think it’ll be useful to visualise how your fiancé would look on your big day. You can bring it to the tailor and show them the looks too. It’ll be easier to explain. (I don’t know much about technicalities in a suit so photos really do help)

There you go lovelies! Give it a try!

Happy Monday to everyone!

Note: I’d like to announce to that Ruffles&Bells will be moving to a new website. I’ll post more about it soon. But I do hope I’d see you there too! Thank you so much for all your support!

Barbie & Ken Got Hitched!

This is just adorable! Barbie’s all grown up and she’s tying the knot (I want to add ‘haha’ to the end of this sentence)! Spotted this in Rock & Roll Bride, french photographer Béatrice de Guigné had the humor of capturing Barbie & Ken’s special day just like how a real wedding would be.

Note: Playing Aqua’s Barbie Girl in the background seems fit while browsing through the photos 😛

Of course there’s pink! According to Beatrice: “Barbie & Ken were married at Faraway Castle, in Plasticity. The bride bought her dress from The Fairy Godmother shop and her shoes from the Cinderella Store. The groom wore a suit from The Prince Charming Emporium. The couple met more than 50 years ago (yes I know they look young). Barbie was tired of waiting so she asked Ken to get married.” Even their story is hilariously cute!

Now I have the urge to look for  my Barbie stuff then recreate my own version of their wedding day! That would be awesome!

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Till the Break of Dawn

It’s the end of the week and just to greet you in advance, Happy Halloween everyone! So what will you girlies be dressed as for trick or treat?

As promised, in anticipation for the upcoming premiere of Breaking Dawn, photographer Brienne Michelle has come up with a styled shoot inspired by Edward & Bella’s wedding. The style is a bit more southern California style mixed with trinkets from the book & the movie…all put together gorgeously!

Chess piece escort cards to match the cover of the book, genius!

They literally waited for the sunset to capture the “twilight”/dramatic effect for the shoot!

Especially LOOOOOVE this last one! Don’t forget to check out her blog here for more photos.

Trick or treat everyone! Boo!

Pinning the Tone

Hi lovelies! How’s your week so far? I hope everything’s great! Mine’s a bit hectic now with all the preps but I’m totally loving it! And, of course I’d like to share all these excitement with you, so I’m thinking how great it would be to share with you my own experiences along the way. Agree?

Alright! Let’s get started! First thing’s first, decide on your motif/color board/theme (whichever you’d like to call it).

To those who know me well, having something to do with pink in our wedding is kind of a no-brainer but with dozens of tones and hues, it’s hard to trim down your choices to just 2-3 (And being a fickle-minded girl doesn’t help either). Good thing we were able to finalize ours quite easily! Yipee!

I haven’t had the time to create a mood board though so here’s a photo to sum up the mood.

What do you think? Pretty! It’s blush, grey, peach & nude. Subtle but when elegantly executed is just Perfect! 🙂

Speaking of photos,  if you’re the kind of person who saves every single photo that has something or might have something to do with your wedding, then you know the problem of either not remembering where you saved them or not being able to carry them around during suppliers meetings or the likes. Now, do I have a treat for you!

Everybody meet Pinterest!

This is an all-in-one multipurpose tool for me! And the reason is because you can keep everything you like for your wedding and categorize it to every single wedding categorization (i.e. attire, reception decor, ceremony, etc) you can think of. Soon enough, you’ll realize that you lean towards a certain taste and by then it’ll be easier to decide on all your decors, etc. I’ve also used this as a repository for my clients!

No more talk! Start pinning! Oh and here’s our wedding board just in case you’d like to check it out!

Note: You need an invitation to be able to have an account in Pinterest. Just post a message on their facebook page then wait for the invitation from their team.

Happy pinning everyone!

Johanna Johnson: Zepporah 2010 Collection

I figured we need to have something to perk up this gloomy rainy day. Aside from the usual cup of hot choco, I am dying to share these beautiful creations by none other than Johanna Johnson. Yes, I am jealous too (even with the models)…

”Inspired by the heady nights of the 20’s and 30’s  where the evening shone with crystal beads and the heady scent of violets and jasmine, these last creations may romance with elegance, sophistication and old world glamour.”

Divine, right? Now this is my fave above all!

You can drool over & be inspired with more of her collections here.

Don’t forget your umbrellas lovelies!
