Spring Has Sprung

The sun is shining and it's starting to feel warm again in Charleston! Has spring finally sprung? We sure hope so! We thought we'd celebrate this warm weather with some inspiring ideas for spring. Here are a few ideas associated with some of our favorite things: Weddings, decorating and, of course, shoes.

Everyone knows that spring is a popular time to get married. With gorgeous weather and flowers in bloom, spring creates the perfect setting for a spectacular wedding. It's no surprise that many couples opt for outdoor ceremonies and receptions. For these events, paper lanterns are the perfect way to create a romantic ambiance. Strung from trees or hung from a ceiling, they can transform any setting into a whimsical venue.
These white lanterns, from Polka Dot Bride are perfect for a garden ceremony.

With an array of bright colors and fun shapes, this look from New and Blue livens up the dance floor.

This look, from Credit Crunch Bride is set indoors and the cluster of lanterns helps to create an intimate dining experience for guests.

If you're looking for somewhere to purchase lanterns, Lunabazaar has a great selection.

Whenever there's a wedding, there's bound to be a bridal shower. Women have spent centuries draping crepe paper in celebration. While we adore tradition, we also love putting a new twist on decorating. How sweet is this centerpiece, featured on The Party Dress? The best part? It'd be perfect for a baby shower as well!

As many-a-bridesmaid can attest, posing for pictures, dancing and sprinting for that bouquet can get awfully painful when you're wearing heels. Fit in Clouds invented these ingenious shoes that can literally fit in the tiniest of handbags.

These compact cuties are perfect for bridal parties or, really, any gal who needs a break from stilettos. With an rainbow of colors, these shoes will make any occasion a walk in the clouds!

Engagement: Stefanie and T

A true Charleston Romance, Stefanie and T met at an oyster roast four years ago. They kept in touch after that first encounter and soon found themselves running into each other all over town. Whether at Wild Wings or on the beach, they were inseparable. They eventually ended up in the same biology class a little over a year ago, when they officially started dating. Biology must have led to some chemistry because while in Savannah last summer, T proposed to Stefanie on a balcony at sunset.

They will be tying the knot on gorgeous Seabrook Island in September and we are delighted to be a part of their big day!
