It’s summer time and you know what that means!
The carnival is coming to town and you have a wedding to plan 🙂
Themed weddings can be a break from the traditional church going crowd.
Imagine having a Pie-in-your-Face stand instead of the traditional smearing of the cake all over your significant other. Or how about fresh popped popcorn as a welcome munchie? We know the birdies like it better than rice.
From the invitations to the person who pronounces you husband and wife (or ringmaster and ringmistress) you can have a themed wedding to fill your carny desires!

Back in the 1950’s and 60’s shoe clips were a popular accessory for spiffing up a regular ol’ pair of shoes. Today shoe clips are enjoying a revival of sorts and being enjoyed from weddings to daily wear.
As hemlines become shorter or as the bride daintily, or daringly, lifts up her dress to have her shoes poke coquettishly from beneath, her shoes are on display for all to see.
Thrifty brides will love that after the wedding their shoe clips can also be worn as lapel brooches or hair accessories. The creative bride will discover that the clips can pretty much be worn anywhere from boot toppers, to belts, pant tops, etc.
