To Dance or Not to Dance...That is the Question!

Happy Wedding Wednesday! During the wedding planning process, you and your fiance' will have hundreds of decisions to make. One question that should always be answered YES is, "Should we take dance lessons for the wedding?"

As a former dance instructor, I always loved when I got to prepare an engaged couple for their first dance. Every couple I have ever taught will attest to the benefit of dance lessons. It was a time for the couple to come together, have fun and release the stress of the work day and wedding planning!

Now, whether you want to learn a basic box step or create an elaborate, choreographed multi song dance, it is beneficial to take at least a few dance lessons together.

There are several dance studios around Chicago that will work with you and your fiance on the type of wedding dance you envision, here are my top three:

Windy City Wedding Dance http://windycityweddingdance.com/wedding-couple-dance-lessons

Arthur Murray Dance Chicago http://chicagoarthurmurray.com/

I'm looking forward to seeing all of your wedding dances, HAPPY DANCING!!

Until next time.... XOXO,

Let's Get Married.... Under The Sea!

Hey there! In today's post, I'm continuing in my series of the Modern Girls Guide to a Disney wedding with a wedding inspired by THE LITTLE MERMAID!

Now, this would obviously be a fantastic wedding to have on the beach, however, if you aren't a "beach bride", but love the theme, set your wedding at an aquarium! The Shedd Aquarium is a fantastic location for the bride looking for a beach/ Under the Sea theme without actually being at the beach!

These are the dresses I envision for the bride and bridal party:

A Wedding fit for a Princess.... a Disney Princess!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE a good love story and there is no better love story than a Disney love story! For the next few posts, I'm taking a spin at modern weddings inspired by some of Disney's iconic love stories..... today, let's look at Cinderella.

Alfred Angelo Bridal has created an entire line of wedding dresses inspired by Disney Princesses, this one is the Cinderella:

When it comes to location and decor, a majestic ballroom, designed with a color theme of silver, blue and ivory are what I see for the ceremony and reception.
