A Bride’s Guide www.okcweddingideas.com


Mallory’s dream of a charming rustic wedding became reality at this woodsy venue with tree lined paths. Mallory’s attention to detail was evident in many of her own novel decorating ideas that she created for her wedding to Geoff. She handmade her programs, used slabs of wood underneath mason jars as centerpieces and made a circle of candles at the altar. The effect was enchanting.

circle of love


oh! orange! Photos by: Amanda Zabrocki www.azphotograph.com

Vibrant orange touches were sprinkled throughout the wedding. The bride’s bouquet, groom’s boutonnières, floral centerpieces and even the bride’s little ballet slippers were dyed orange. All for Geoff, who is colorblind, but can distinguish the boldness of orange. We think this is true love from our adorable bride, Mallory. Looks we Love….candle glow, golden bridesmaids’ bouquets,

Heather and Jason RUSTIC AUTUMN WEDDING The Blue Ridge Smokey Mountains provided a beautiful backdrop for Jason’s surprise proposal to Heather. Winding roads led Jason to the perfect secluded spot to pull over, drop to one knee and ask Heather to marry him. Taking her by complete surprise, Jason had to ask her twice before she gave a resounding “YES!” She immediately began plans for a fall wedding using the warm, rich, vibrant color palette found in fall foliage. Burnt oranges, greens and marigolds were stunning against the café au latte brown chosen for her bridesmaids dresses and were beautiful against the backdrop of the wedding venue.

Photos by: Jenni Woods www.jenniwoodsphotography.com Heather’s special details included a keepsake pin that her grandfather had given her grandmother during his military service and was attached to a dainty white handkerchief that was embroidered with Jason and Heather’s names and wedding date.

Heather collected dried leaves from each of their hometowns and were used as decoration on tables. She used pine branches on the top of the wedding programs to carry the outdoorsy feel even farther. Heather chose to give s’mores as wedding favors and included cute printed directions on how to make and enjoy. Very clever favors!

The groom’s cake was a fabulous example of the artistry of bakers found in the area. It has so much imagination put into it that it is truly a work of art...it’s a shame it had to be cut!

Caroline and David A BEAUTIFUL FALL AFTERNOON...

As the lovely and serene Caroline walked down the aisle to meet David, she was breathtaking in her white sheath wedding gown. It was a perfectly clear autumn day making the ceremony a joyous afternoon for family and friends who gathered to watch the union of this happy couple.

The iron gazebo was abundantly decorated with gold and orange autumn leaves intertwined to form a canopy of color above the bride and groom. Caroline’s bridesmaids wore black dresses with an accent of sienna orange wraps around their shoulders. The same color was incorporated into the groom and groomsmen attire with a splash of orange in their ties. The color theme was further carried into bouquets and floral arrangements, table linens and the cupcake bar.

WI wishes Caroline and David blessings and happiness. For Information on Advertising call 405.216.0747

WI Debbie’s Tips Colors for Your Wedding When choosing your wedding colors you should consider more that just picking your favorite colors. Think about your venue. Will the colors you select complement the style and colors used in the decor? Will the colors you choose create the right kind of mood? Can you find flowers that are in season that are part of your color scheme? The colors you choose will set the stage for what everyone will expect from your wedding, beginning with the invitation. Think it over and choose a couple of main colors you enjoy and several other secondary colors that are complementary and narrow it down from there. Happy planning!

W.I. interviews Fanci Armstrong at My Personal Trainer.

FANCI SUGGESTS YOU CONSIDER THESE IMPORTANT POINTS: • A body composition analysis is important, which reveals the hydration level in the body, the percentage of body fat and the maintenance level of calories for each person. • Hydration plays a major role in fat loss and the health of organs. • Spot reducing is a myth. • Proper nutrition and exercise are essential for weight loss and health. • Exercising with weights and resistance equipment will not make women have big bulky muscles like a man. • Cellulite can be reduced or eliminated through a fat loss nutritional plan and proper strength training. • Personal trainers are not created equally. Be sure to find a trainer who is certified, knows their equipment and what your body needs to maximize your fitness routine. • Don’t settle for anything less than first class equipment when starting your program. Nautilus, the Mercedes of exercise equipment, is the only full range of motion equipment, which increases flexibility, range of motion and strengthens bone density. While we all want instant results, your health is important and it takes time to achieve results that will last a lifetime. Expert advice and consultation provided by appointment.

Wedding TIPS Kristen and Pete I had 9 months to plan my wedding and while that might sound like a long time, it goes quickly! From what I am told, we had a grand slam of a wedding! We had a short and funny ceremony followed by a Happy Hour of beer and wine along with an incredible sit down dinner with an awesome DJ and lots of fun dancing. Our dinner choices included Cornish game hens, lemon braised salmon or a vegetarian special. Each dish came with a superb wedge salad and a tomato bisque soup. There were 10 cupcakes on each table with the remaining cupcakes on the cake table. We also had a small one tier cake so that we could do the traditional cake cutting.

I highly recommend my photographer, Sherry Lynch. I found her through Oklahoma Wedding Ideas magazine. She was 100% on the same page with me and was always very patient with us and very willing to do whatever we needed to get the shots we wanted. She was simply the best photographer I could have hoped for! I made several things and YouTube and Pinterest helped me! I made my birdcage veil. There was an excellent tutorial on YouTube that helped me and I was pleased with my creative endeavors. I wished I had hired a videographer to do personalized interviews and well wishes. I think those are fun and entertaining to watch. Overall, I would describe our wedding as BETTER than expected. Of course, there are always some problems, but we didn’t let them affect the wedding or reception and no one even noticed. We LOVED sharing the day with our family and friends. That is what we looked forward to the most. This is what it was really about for us, sharing our story and personalities with our families and friends. It was a huge success and a BLAST!

-Kristen

Mama Mia!..

Mama Mia! What a Bachelorette Party! Mom, me and the “Sisters” Friday night: WI couldn’t resist sharing this blowout bachelorette party with you. It had flash, it had fun, it had games, it had singing and dancing, it had drinks! All of it with no make up and lots of shenanigans! This wild trip with good friends turned out to be exactly what Pam had wanted to celebrate the next chapter in her life. Mama Mia!! Saturday: Summertime and the living is easy...Pam thought being out on the lake with her friends would be the best part of the trip, but little did she know what was in store! After a fabulous dinner that evening, the waiter handed Pam a postcard that said, “Special Event Tonight at 8:30 p.m.” The “sisters” smirk and are off to make preparations.
