Let the Wedding Plans Begin!!!

As I’m sure many of you have heard me mention on air and on facebook, both of my sons are getting married this coming spring!  I am beyond excited and cannot express the joy I have for both couples.

My son, David and his fiancé Christine are all set... Dress bought and venue complete!

My son, Michael and his fiancé Alli want a small, intimate wedding with close friends and family and could not think of a more special place to hold it than our home. This week Alli’s parents are flying up from Atlanta to help plan plan plan! Alli’s engagement ring, which was my Grandmother’s from the 1920’s, is the inspiration for the look and feel of the wedding.  The ring is gorgeous and has an Art Deco / Great Gatsby design.

A few weeks ago, I went wedding dress shopping with Alli and her mother Diane and saw many beautiful dresses.  Although Alli thought she found the perfect dress, she decided to continue looking and is considering designing her own dress, of course with my assistance! Smiley Happy Alli is a very talented artist - in fact, she and my daughter Jaclyn helped me with the wedding dress I designed for Kate Middleton a year or two ago.  We could not believe how similar it was to the dress Kate wore by Alexander McQueen!

After designing Kate's dress, we decided to do one just for the fun of it... How do you like it?

For my wedding, I designed my own dress and I loved creating exactly what I wanted, having a completely unique signature dress. Below is a picture of me and Richie making our entrance as Mr. and Mrs. Graver!

Do you have any advice for planning a wedding? Any suggestions for decorations and favors for the vintage theme? Any dress ideas? I love hearing from you and appreciate your input!

Please be sure to catch my upcoming shows Sunday the 14th at 10pm ET, Wednesday the 17th at 1pm ET, and Thursday the 18th at 9am ET.
