Flowers in her hair, flowers everywhere

When it comes to planning a wedding, one of my favorite meetings to attend and ideas to brainstorm are what types of flowers are going to suit my brides’ wedding days best. I love soft, full blooms, greenery, anything lush. I love a wedding day filled to the brim with floral. It is no surprise to find arrangements blossoming on aisles, altars, tables and chairs, but a trend that I saw a little of last year and would love to see more this year is flowers in the hair. Flower crowns have been popping up here and there-I like seeing them on flower girls, but I LOVE seeing them on my brides. Individual blooms in place of bedazzled pin are always a DO adding a soft, romantic touch. TIP: Skip any bloom whose stamens sport a high amount of pollen-it will show up in your hair! Or worse, your dress! A few of our real wedding favorites: Emily and John both donned crowns made by Marius Bell Floral. {Photography by TJ Uttke Photography} Sam added an elegant touch to her updo with a simple, yet beautiful pin also made by Marius Bell Floral. {Photography by Heather Cook Elliott Photography} You don’t have to go to the pros for your headpiece to be beautiful.

Turning it up a notch {Milwaukee Power Yoga}

We promised to ourselves and to our clients that we would be trying out different yoga, pilates and barre studios throughout the next few months to kick to cold winter blues and to keep our brides in the know with the best work outs leading up to their wedding!

There is street parking around the studio, but I suggest planning on showing up 20 minutes prior as parking can fill up quickly! TIP: Perhaps it was because of the sub zero temperatures, but Milwaukee Power Yoga’s classes have been filled to the brim. Show up at least 20 minutes early if you want to stake out a spot easily! Milwaukee Power Yoga offers vinyasa flow style yoga, emphasis on the flows! It is a challenging practice that combines balancing, stretching, and strengthening asana sequences to create long and lean muscles. TIP: MPY heats their studio to 95 degrees, if you want to catch a little draft throughout the class, head to the back of the room! Our Class: Hot Candlelight Flow-my favorite! (for beginners to advanced) This class is a perfect way to wind down your evening as the flows are at a slightly slower pace. Length: 1 hour Milwaukee Power Yoga offers a variety of classes at a variety of...
