a Fine & Dandy Groom {wardrobe dept}

Looking for that special pocket square? Maybe socks? A groom's accessories are just as important as a bride's.  So, when I was looking for that special pocket square and socks to match the wedding colour scheme I knew where to look, Fine & Dandy Shop. Run by two of the most stylish men in New York City and who happen to be my friends, Fine & Dandy owners Matt and Enrique were my only choice.

the other stylish dandy, Enrique

Compared to what the shop carries we were a bit conservative and a tad boring with the choice of purple but it matched the colour scheme of the wedding plus the quality is fantastic, 100% silk & hand stitched edge.

As for the socks, just a matching purple pair. Originally I was hoping the groom would wear an argyle pair but he decided to stay within the colour scheme and opted for tone on tone. Which is cool as he didn't want to draw attention to his socks...
Is your groom as involved in choosing his accessories as mine was? His suit was purchased from a local menshop here in Toronto, post to come this week.

Something Blue {OPI nailpolish}

Looking for that something blue to wear on your wedding day? Why not a subtle blue shade on your nails as seen at New York International Bridal Week. Models at the Angel Sanchez show walked down the runway wearing OPI nail laquer in shade I Don't Give a Rotterdam!, a shimmery steel blue shade.
What do you think of wearing blue on your nails on your wedding day? Perhaps for your bridesmaids? If not so daring as a shade for your toes.

a photoshoot on a rainy day {La Merceria Coffee House}

Being that my husband and I are not exactly conventional we wanted our wedding day pictures to reflect our everyday lives. And as we are big coffee drinkers we chose a coffee shop for our backdrop for our wedding day pictures. Coffee was also a big theme in our wedding, our wedding favors were coffee!
It also allowed us to embrace my husband's parents' culture, they are from Colombia. Therefore, Colombian coffee was an easy choice. Our wedding favors were purchased from La Merceria, the owner Sandra who happens to be from Colombia too, has the cutest little café in downtown Toronto. The café happened to be down the street from the church we got married so it was an easy walk to our photoshoot. The café also provided shelter in case of rain, which it did rain on our day!
La Merceria, was a little retreat on our day. Not only was it rainy but chilly but a warm latte was a welcome treat!
And of course nothing sweeter than a kiss!

I'm hanging around...

Hello Beautiful Brides-to-Be! I'm back for a few more posts as I want to share all the details that made my day so special. I do admit that once the day had come I was also happy to have the wedding planning over with. Wedding planning had consumed my life and there is such a relief once its over. However, while you can enjoy it because its part of the wedding process and you'll have comic relief afterwards, believe me there are behind-the-scene stories at every wedding.
Last year I had blogged about personalized bride hangers, here! It was one detail that I loved! Also, if you do go with a personalized hanger order well in advance. Try to get all the little details ordered well before your wedding as its one less item to worry about. Although I didn't go with a personalized name on my hanger I loved the simplicity of 'Bride'.
To purchase etsy.com of course:
