Wedding season has kicked off into high gear and I have been busy working with the team at Flosites on a new brand AND a new website! The blog has taken a little hiatus but I promise we will be back in a BIG way in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for the fabulous make over. I can't wait to share!
Welcome to Tiny Bubbles, the blog of TOAST®
We hope you will "pop" in often to see what we are up to!
Happy Fat Tuesday! I am fresh off my first trip to Mardi Gras and thought I'd repost a popular post on incorporating New Orleans into your wedding..enjoy!
Today, I'm sharing some ideas of how to bring New Orleans flair to your wedding day by including some of their charming flavors and traditions at your celebration!Enjoy a few ideas we have used and some we'd love to incorporate into our next wedding.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!
Create custom Mardi Gras beads as favors or to toss at the end of the night to your guests. These were created in the wedding colors and purchased from Beads by the Dozen
Host a parade or "second line" led by the band at the end of the night. The bride and groom passed out beads and masks and walked off into the night carrying their custom parasols.
Introduce New Orleans cuisine to your guests by serving King Cake, Beignets, Pralines or Gumbo, or host a crawfish boil for your rehearsal party! Learn more about the King Cake HERE
Have the female guests participate in a cake pull, a Victorian Tradition that is popular in Louisiana. For more information and details visit Southern Weddings feature here!
Incorporate the fleur-de-lis as a brand for your wedding in stationery, cakes or other items.
Atlanta Brides...this is a luxury bridal show, not to be missed! We can't wait to see you there and to see the stunning designs that capture all "Four Seasons" at the Four Seasons Atlanta!

You know when you have a million dollar idea, then come to find out it already exists!? It’s a relief in a way, that now I don’t have to go to all the trouble of creating that website and app, but well…can’t we all use a million dollars?
As I start to prepare a style file for my brides, I often do a lot of searching for the perfect bridesmaid’s dress. I have a vision…a length, a color, a style! Then I must go to every bridesmaid designer site to see if it exists. I may find the style I like, or not the color, and vice versa. It is an exhaustive process, and I’m sure I am not the first one to have this complaint.
Enter Weddington Way, a website that takes the tireless bridesmaid search away by bringing styles, colors and price points together. Once you are on the site, you can search for dresses by color, style, length, fabric,season and price point. You can even invite your bridesmaids to interact and order the gowns right from the site.
Weddington Way even lets you order a swatch first to ensure that you are working with JUST the perfect shade of blush you had in mind.Once you have found the gown, you can also find the perfect flower girl and groomsmen accessories to tie in. I’m thrilled about this search engine and hope you find your way to Weddington Way soon!
