As I mentioned last week, couple of changes happened with my wedding plan.
Due to family matters, geographic issues (most of the guest are out of town) and the financial situation of the country (and ours), we’ve both decided it would be better postpone the date for the wedding.
So, for now, no religious ceremony or big reception will be happening until 2010.
Disappointed??? Not much… after all, what is a celebration, if it isn’t the way you planned it or if you cannot have your dear friends and family near you?? We can wait…
However, as we are having our parents coming from out of town this next summer/fall (his parents live in FL and mine in Brazil), we are still considering having a civil ceremony followed with a family dinner.
Excited? A lot!! Gives me something to plan for this year :-)
I will be sharing everything, of course… But from now on, I will be posting on my new blog.
Yes!!! After a very busy, crazy week, my new blog is finally done !!!!
Hope to see all of you over there.

Sometimes things are not taking the direction that you planned...
Sometimes things are not as good as you wished...
Sometimes life plays tricks on you and nothing works the way you would like them to...
Sometimes you get new insights and new ideas, and what you thought was great before…is now boring...
When that happens, it is a sign that you need to make some changes...
These last few days, I've been working on some changes in my life, including my wedding itself. I’ve read blogs where the bride had to (or decided to) change the venue, the flowers, the theme, the colors, the date…
I am changing the year and the type of wedding (at least for now), and I am loving the idea!!!
For now, I would like to share that I am in the process of creating a new blog. Yeeeeiiiii !!!
I really do enjoy my current blog. The opportunity it has given me to meet many other brides in the blogsphere has been amazing! However, I feel like something is missing and I believe it also needs to be changed a bit!!!

I have a feeling, and I believe some of you might agree with me, that this was a very, very, very long winter.
Yesterday was the first day of spring and I woke up with snow outside my window...how crazy was that!?!?! But with my very positive thinking, I believe that it was just a way of saying "good bye", because today it feels nice outside and I hope it will keep this way...

I had read it before, but for some reason I didn’t really pay close attention to some very unique details.
The 2009 trend is all about hot, bright, vibrant colors! Perhaps the words bright side, bright colors got my full interest today.
Sheridan & Bo, the couple featured on the article, chose Santa Barbara-CA as their destination wedding celebrating it with vibrant colors.
Last but not least, I am so in love with this feather headpiece. Not too long ago I posted about the feather wedding headpieces from Breeziway (here). When I saw this picture today, I thought… hummm… it really looks very nice! I am definitely considering to wear something like that on my reception.

After spending hours posing for pictures, standing up in church and dancing, your guest will thank you for a pair of flip flops.
With hundreds of unique styles and color to go with your wedding theme, these cool Brazilian flip flops, Havaianas, are extremely comfortable.
Even the bride can wear a more stylish pair covered in Swarovski crystals:
Your flower girl will love these:

I am not a huge fan of ice sculptures, but those ice bars where your guests can get their drinks directly from the ice sculpture are really getting my attention.
Besides adding some elegance to your celebration, they are really fun.

I believe it would make a perfect combination with my white pomander (see here).

Square Root Day is a rare day that occurs when the day and the month are both the square root of the last two digits of the current year.
In other words: March 3, 2009 : 3/3/09, can be expressed mathematically as:
To ilustrate, unique table number cards representing the square root of the day.

If you are going to be near NYC next weekend, you might consider having some fun donating your bridesmaid dress to a good cause.
It is the PROJECT BRIDESMAIDS.
The project was created by the actress Sharon Stone and her sister, Kelly. The dresses will be distributed to students of several schools across the country for Prom 2009. What a great idea, huh?
Your donated dress will give you access to a full day of fashion shows, prizes, makeovers, shopping, a chance to win a trip to Barbados and much more. Plus, the first 500 guests get a swag bag full of goodies.
If you don’t have a bridesmaid dress, a small donation is also accepted.
Unfortunately I wont be able to make it, but if you are interested, RSVP by March 5th to Brides.com/projectbridesmaids.
The event will be held at:
311 West 34th Street NYC
Saturday - March 07
HAVE FUN and don’t forget to share your experience!!!

I need your help on a search for inspiration!
Are you girls doing anything special for the ladies / gents room at your venue?
I am thinking of having a customized sign at the door that would coordinate with my wedding theme, or perhaps have an elegant basket with some basic products, first aid party kit (for those who like to drink a bit much) … something like that.
A while ago I saw I really cute one online but just can’t find it anymore.
If you know of a website, or if you have any pictures that you can send me that would give me some insight, please let me know!!!
