Happy National Tequila Day, detailers! Why toss back a plain, old tequila shot when you can shoot a mini-margarita instead? In celebration of the boozy beverage, I’m sharing with all of you an awesome recipe that is great for engagement | bridal showers & bachelor[ette] parties, as well as wedding receptions alike!

The A to Z of Veils: A Masterpost ✨

How-To's | Masterposts | Guides
Hello my detailers!
The bridal look is never complete without the veil! To help guide you in picking out the perfect length & style for you, I’ve put together a list of ALL the different veil options in the hopes of making your decision as easy as possible!
Birdcage
A forehead-grazing veil popularized in the 1920’s and throughout the 1950’s that exudes sophistication with a playful & vintage quirk, usually made out of a fine tulle or netting material.

Blusher
A short, face-covering veil that extends below the chin, usually made out of a fine tulle.

Bouffant
A cloud of tulle rising above the bride’s head for a dramatic, modern look. Bouffant veils can be many lengths.

Cathedral
A dramatic, regal veil made famous by Princess Diana that extends well past 9 feet long. Usually requires the assistance of members of the bridal party to assist in carrying while walking down the aisle.

P.S. I felt it only appropriate to include a cathedral for the cathedral veil example.
Chapel
A veil that extends fully to the floor, approximately seven feet below the headpiece.

Elbow | Waist
An A-line veil that extends anywhere between the elbows and fingertips.

Fingertip
The most traditional-length veil. Reaches the length of the bride’s fingertips when her arms are by her sides.

Flyaway [Short]
A wispy, multi-layered veil that grazes the shoulders, perfect for those wedding gowns with open backs or fine detailing.

Mantilla 
A short, Spanish-style veil that lays simply over the head instead of being held in place with a comb.

Sweep [Walking]
Brushes the ground when walking.

Three-Tiered
A blusher, fingertip-length, and sweeping layer all in one veil.

Best of luck to my blushing brides-to-be in their veil selection

Coming to you live from good ol’ hot & humid Indiana, USA, Happy National Ice Cream Day everyone! 
I have a special treat I’m sharing today in celebration of this holiday, & it is something that I have personally gotten the chance to witness and enjoy myself! My sister & brother-in-law are not cake people in any way, shape or form, so they swapped out the traditional cake-cutting for ice cream-scooping, and had Baskin Robbins cater their dessert! It was the perfect addition to their reception, not just for that particularly scorching-hot, early fall day, but for these two foodies that wanted to make sure every aspect of their wedding day was uniquely them!

For those days where it is just a little too hot to be in a full ballgown and 3-piece suit, for the mint-to-be couples that like a lot of different dessert options, and every little reason in between, consider cooling off with a ice cream bar!
With ice cream, anything is popsicle
