Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple is a good color to use in meditation.

Captivating Bridal Headpieces

Many people don't realize how important each detail is and how much it all adds to making that special unforgettable moment. As you may have already noticed, I always opt for things that make a dramatic statement. I think that one should go 'all out' and not water things down. Go for the things that you really want, the things that will make YOU happy.

Today I have chosen a few captivating bridal headpieces. I hope you like them or at the very least, get inspired by one of them.

Mistletoe and a Winter Wedding

Mistletoe. . . somehow, just the thought of it makes me think of romance yet the tradition of mistletoe didn't always signify romance. One tradition was that mistletoe was a plant of peace. Enemies who met under the mistletoe were obliged to stop fighting for at least a day. Eventually, hanging mistletoe over the doorway of one's home brought peace and good luck.  It was in 18th century Britain that kissing became a tradition. They would make a ball of mistletoe that would be hung as a Christmas decoration. If a couple was found to be standing under the mistletoe, they were obliged to kiss if the ball still had berries. For each kiss a berry would be taken from the ball. When the berries were gone, the 'luck' in love and marriage was considered gone and it was bad luck to kiss beneath it.  I have never heard the part about the berries before now. I don't think the berries are even part of it these days but the romance and the kissing idea remain as a winter tradition. It is a beautiful tradition to include in your winter wedding.                                                                                                            

This is so romantic and lovely. . .

O-K, no mistletoe but stunning just the same.

Perhaps mistletoe over the doorway?

I love the pine branch with this table setting but a sprig of mistletoe would be equally beautiful don't you think?

Another great idea. . . a mistletoe decorated wedding cake.
This is mistletoe complete with it's white berries. Below, is a beautiful bouquet of mistletoe and white roses. . . LOVELY!
I hope this give you some inspiration if you are planning a w inter wedding. Actually, this would be great for a winter party as well.
