Now Trending: Bridal Cuff Bouquet

The bouquet is a statement piece in every bride’s wedding.

It is considered as important as a bride’s accessories and is always a must have!

As weddings become more unique and stylized the bouquet continues to evolve as well. Today, not  many women throw their floral masterpiece because of its beauty and to be honest, flowers are  not the most inexpensive to just throw around. Now, bouquets are considered an accessory to the bride’s big day, an art.

More recently, event and interior designer, Diann Valentine created the “bridal cuff”; a dainty flowing stream of silk flowers and luxurious crystal beads to be worn on a bride’s wrist. When I first came across this modern take on the bouquet, I thought could this be the bouquet of the generation and generations to come? Logically, it’s a great idea. It frees the bride’s hands and allows her to show her bouquet off all day long without the weight of heavy real flowers. It’s fun, elegant, and it’s a great upgrade from the traditional bouquet. It compliments a bride’s dress without covering the details of her gown that she loves so much. Now all we have to do is figure out what to do with our hands! (Vogue!)

Take a look and tell us what you think!

Happy Birthday Lindsey!

It’s MED’s owner & executive producer’s birthday today!

Cheers to a woman who has dedicated her life to creating memorable celebrations for others. She is not only selfless, but a go-getter in everything she imagines. It takes a special type of person to do what she does for others, but more importantly it takes a big heart and that is what continues to propel her forward. Lindsey is  always there to lend a listening ear to her friends, family and clients.  She is constantly making her surroundings beautiful and I am sure her birthday today will be nothing short of that. Lindsey, may your birthday be surrounded with love, and friends and family who enjoy celebrations as much as you do. May it be filled with joy, mimosas, celebration of YOUR life, and free of work! (because I will gladly come over to remove all electronic devices)! : ) Happy Birthday Lindsey!

Stay Fabulous,
