Walking the Walk

Happy Wedding Wednesday to all in blog land!  Are you a bride or groom to be?  Will you be taking the infamous nuptial stroll down the aisle any time soon?  There is so much to think about when planning your wedding, and it is easy to become overwhelmed with all of the details.  When it comes to aisles, surely you’ve walked toward your fiancee on countless occasions, but never like this…  There are just so many ways to do it.  How will you?  After all, you made it this far as a couple.  You went the distance.  All that talk of marriage, and now you’re engaged.  This is the real deal.  It’s time to walk the walk.  On that note, how do you feel about branches?  As you may or may not have already discovered, a branch embellished aisle is an ornate and rather magical one.  Tall and sturdy, or slender and wispy, branches add a very romantic appeal.  Sometimes they may be painted or even gold leafed, other times they appear natural.  Sometimes they have candles, crystals, ornaments, or luminaries hanging from them.  Maybe they are for you, or maybe not, but branches have a special place in our hearts here at L’Atelier Rouge.  They are among our favorite wedding designs.  Many people like to see them as part of their alter or Chuppah.  Others prefer them simply lining the aisles or as centerpieces in the reception.  Then there are those who would prefer to incorporate them all over to create the affect of being in the forrest.  We say, whatever suits your fancy be it branches, twigs or trees!  Wether the presence of them within your design is abundant or slight, it is really up to you and your wedding style.  Here are some examples of beautiful aisles and such, that have been adorned with branches in various ways, to help you visualize what may be created for your unforgettable walk to say “I do!”

Dear Spring, You’re Sexy

It’s finally here.  Not to say we told you so, but we did.  If spring were a man, he’d be the kind that comes around when you least expect it and sweeps you off your feet.  The kind of charming guy that makes you say; “Hey there big boy, what are you doing tonight?”  Well he has arrived, and it just so happens to be Wedding Wednesday out in cyber space.  Since we’re celebrating the beautiful bond of marriage, we also feel its time to celebrate this sexy time of year when we get to shake off the winter chills (and layers of clothing).  While spring blossoms, so doth our own sexual prowess.  You see, we’re feeling very sexy lately here at L’Atelier Rouge, and we want to inspire you to feel good about yourself too.  We got to thinking; is there really any night quite as unforgettable as your wedding night?  Even if you’re not a Bride to be, how about some practice in the fun and flirty department?  After all, practice makes perfect, no?  We’re calling a spade a spade when we say that it’s everyone’s right to exercise his or her sex appeal.  Spring is inspirational in that way.  We ask you this: on that sexy night after you’ve said “I do”, how will you dress to thrill your beloved for hanky panky?  Why not get inspired by a few of our favorite lingerie designers…
