Chic Maps by Nikki!

So for those of you who don't know what 'Chic Maps by Nikki' actually is, here's your chance!!

Custom.Chic.Unique

I have always loved weddings and the joy they bring to the couple and those around them, which is why I became a Wedding & Event Coordinator. I especially love planning weddings that really encompass the couple’s favorite things so that when guests arrive at the wedding they say ‘WOW! This is totally them!’ So why not start earlier than your BIG day and give your family and friends an idea of what you have in store for them? And it is for that reason that I began creating Chic Maps by Nikki!
These maps can be used as a creative addition to your wedding invitations, Out-of-Town guest gift bags, Bridesmaid’s Itineraries or even as a unique ‘Save the Date’ magnet, postcard, etc…And if you’re not getting married they are a creative idea for Reunions, Birthday Parties, Baby/Bridal Showers, etc…and can be done wherever your special event is being held, in the U.S. or abroad!While some of these maps show local attractions, landmarks and airports you can add all sorts of things. Show your guests where you and your fianc├ęs favorite restaurant is, a local day spa, rehearsal dinner location, hotel room blocks or even where he popped the question! Once we’ve worked through all of the locations you’d like to add we can add directions and/or itineraries and decide how you’d like them printed. You can have them done in any size and on any color paper, which can be matched to anything you may have already chosen: dresses, invitations, cake, etc… you can even have them printed on watercolor paper and I can add hand-painted details to each of your maps for that truly personalized touch.

Drop Veils...ahhhhhh

When it's time for me to marry the man of my dreams (he knows who he is :)
I absolutely will be wearing one of these beauties! This style of veil is labeled the 'drop veil.' It has the look of a floating veil that is thinner than most. For those of you thinking, 'well when he lifts my veil it will fall off!!' Don't fret they are attached to the top of your head via a u-shaped bobby pin but that can be your little secret, shhh...I love them because they aren't so overwhelmingly thick as some veils can be.
I love the tradition of wearing a veil but I'd also like my groom to be able to see me,
is that too much to ask?!
They come in a all lengths so if you are still dreaming of a cathedral length veil you can have it!
I found this site that has some great priced veils, Occansey Designs. Hint for brides on a budget, or just in general: don't feel like you have to purchase your veil from your bridal salon, YES I know you tried it on with your dress and it looked great but the prices can sometimes be a little outrageous so just use it as a chance to find the style you like and find them online!!!
