Turn your pictures into something FABULOUS!

Think about how cute your Bridal Shower was with all your family and friends.... or even your highly anticipated (and super fun) Bachelorette party with your girls. Hundreds of pictures were probably taken at every wedding related event and all we know what to do with pictures is upload them to Facebook!

Why not try creating your own one of a kind video set to your own music instead? I was recently introduced to Animoto, a great tool that turns pictures into a slide show video at the touch of a button.

Check out our YouTube channel, StylishTraditions where we recently uploaded the 1st video we made on Animoto! PS- Stay tuned for more to come on YouTube!

ABC Florida Regional Conference

This weekend I had the opportunity to attend the ABC Florida Regional Conference at the World Golf Village Renaissance Hotel in St. Augustine. It was so much fun! Not only did I learn tons from seasoned wedding planners Ana Cruz and Linyette Richardson-Hall, but I got to meet other planners from all over Florida.
Here are some pictures I snapped while in St. Augustine for the weekend:

My favorite centerpiece... it was for a Giddy Up Cowboy Breakfast!

My favorite.. Ana Cruz was such an inspiration!

Linnyette Richardson-Hall gave a speech on Destiny

Me with Sarah from Room Service by AFR

Me in front of the Casa Monica Hotel... looks a little like our logo!

Special thanks to the ABC Florida chapter for sending me there on scholarship... it was truly a wonderful experience!

Exciting News for Our Blog!

Fabulous news for all the brides that can't get enough dress action.... Bridal Stylist, Leah Melone, from Solutions Bridal will be writing a weekly blog, "Dress Talk" every Wednesday on our blog!

As a former Solutions girl myself, I just love the idea of getting the inside scoop on new gowns, designers and trends in the bridal world. Not only does the upscale salon carry top designers such as Kenneth Pool, Rivini and Lazaro but they're also very involved in the wedding industry.

Take a look at some of the beautiful gowns they have in the salon now:

Down the Aisle

The aisle is your runway. Seriously, it's your time to shine! Do something spectacular that gets all your guests talking about your walk down the aisle. More than just scattered rose petals, you can order specialty decor to tie in the theme of your reception.

Having an autumn orchard wedding? This beautiful handmade aisle runner features a hand painted tree.

These colorful poms can hang on rod iron posts at your outdoor ceremony.

A simple, garden wedding would be the perfect event to use these custom floral and petal cones. You can use them to hold arrangements or fill with petals to be showered as you walk down as husband and wife.
